Subject[PATCH] [82/139] inotify: stop kernel memory leak on file creation failure
Date
2.6.35-longterm review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------
From: Eric Paris <eparis@redhat.com>

commit a2ae4cc9a16e211c8a128ba10d22a85431f093ab upstream.

If inotify_init is unable to allocate a new file for the new inotify
group we leak the new group. This patch drops the reference on the
group on file allocation failure.
