Subject[ 11/38] vfs: fix double put after complete_walk()
3.0-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------
From: Miklos Szeredi <mszeredi@suse.cz>

commit 097b180ca09b581ef0dc24fbcfc1b227de3875df upstream.

complete_walk() already puts nd->path, no need to do it again at cleanup time.

This would result in Oopses if triggered, apparently the codepath is not too
well exercised.
