Subject[PATCH 3.18 20/36] quota: Check for register_shrinker() failure.
Date
3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Tetsuo Handa <penguin-kernel@I-love.SAKURA.ne.jp>


[ Upstream commit 88bc0ede8d35edc969350852894dc864a2dc1859 ]

register_shrinker() might return -ENOMEM error since Linux 3.12.
Call panic() as with other failure checks in this function if
register_shrinker() failed.

Fixes: 1d3d4437eae1 ("vmscan: per-node deferred work")
