Subject[PATCH 3.16 097/133] bcache: Fix leak of bdev reference
3.16.51-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Jan Kara <jack@suse.cz>

commit 4b758df21ee7081ab41448d21d60367efaa625b3 upstream.

If blkdev_get_by_path() in register_bcache() fails, we try to lookup the
block device using lookup_bdev() to detect which situation we are in to
properly report error. However we never drop the reference returned to
us from lookup_bdev(). Fix that.
