Subject[PATCH 4.14 082/193] fsnotify: fix pinning group in fsnotify_prepare_user_wait()
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Miklos Szeredi <mszeredi@redhat.com>

commit 9a31d7ad997f55768c687974ce36b759065b49e5 upstream.

Blind increment of group's user_waits is not enough, we could be far enough
in the group's destruction that it isn't taken into account (i.e. grabbing
the mark ref afterwards doesn't guarantee that it was the ref coming from
the _group_ that was grabbed).

Instead we need to check (under lock) that the mark is still attached to
the group after having obtained a ref to the mark. If not, skip it.
