Subject[010/107] inetpeer: fix race in unused_list manipulations
2.6.39-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------


From: Eric Dumazet <eric.dumazet@gmail.com>

[ Upstream commit 686a7e32ca7fdd819eb9606abd3db52b77d1479f ]

Several crashes in cleanup_once() were reported in recent kernels.

Commit d6cc1d642de9 (inetpeer: various changes) added a race in
unlink_from_unused().

One way to avoid taking unused_peers.lock before doing the list_empty()
test is to catch 0->1 refcnt transitions, using full barrier atomic
operations variants (atomic_cmpxchg() and atomic_inc_return()) instead
of previous atomic_inc() and atomic_add_unless() variants.

We then call unlink_from_unused() only for the owner of the 0->1
transition.

Add a new atomic_add_unless_return() static helper

With help from Arun Sharma.
