Subject[44/90] svcrpc: fix double-free on shutdown of nfsd after changing pool mode
3.0-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------
From: "J. Bruce Fields" <bfields@redhat.com>

commit 61c8504c428edcebf23b97775a129c5b393a302b upstream.

The pool_to and to_pool fields of the global svc_pool_map are freed on
shutdown, but are initialized in nfsd startup only in the
SVC_POOL_PERCPU and SVC_POOL_PERNODE cases.

They *are* initialized to zero on kernel startup. So as long as you use
only SVC_POOL_GLOBAL (the default), this will never be a problem.

You're also OK if you only ever use SVC_POOL_PERCPU or SVC_POOL_PERNODE.

However, the following sequence events leads to a double-free:

1. set SVC_POOL_PERCPU or SVC_POOL_PERNODE
2. start nfsd: both fields are initialized.
3. shutdown nfsd: both fields are freed.
4. set SVC_POOL_GLOBAL
5. start nfsd: the fields are left untouched.
6. shutdown nfsd: now we try to free them again.

Step 4 is actually unnecessary, since (for some bizarre reason), nfsd
automatically resets the pool mode to SVC_POOL_GLOBAL on shutdown.
