Subject[044/107] PM: Free memory bitmaps if opening /dev/snapshot fails
2.6.39-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

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

From: Michal Kubecek <mkubecek@suse.cz>

commit 8440f4b19494467883f8541b7aa28c7bbf6ac92b upstream.

When opening /dev/snapshot device, snapshot_open() creates memory
bitmaps which are freed in snapshot_release(). But if any of the
callbacks called by pm_notifier_call_chain() returns NOTIFY_BAD, open()
fails, snapshot_release() is never called and bitmaps are not freed.
Next attempt to open /dev/snapshot then triggers BUG_ON() check in
create_basic_memory_bitmaps(). This happens e.g. when vmwatchdog module
is active on s390x.
