Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 4.20 71/72] autofs: drop dentry reference only when it is never used
Date
From: Pan Bian <bianpan2016@163.com>

[ Upstream commit 63ce5f552beb9bdb41546b3a26c4374758b21815 ]

autofs_expire_run() calls dput(dentry) to drop the reference count of
dentry. However, dentry is read via autofs_dentry_ino(dentry) after
that. This may result in a use-free-bug. The patch drops the reference
count of dentry only when it is never used.
