Subject[PATCH 3.16 044/202] fuse: call pipe_buf_release() under pipe lock
3.16.66-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Jann Horn <>

commit 9509941e9c534920ccc4771ae70bd6cbbe79df1c upstream.

Some of the pipe_buf_release() handlers seem to assume that the pipe is
locked - in particular, anon_pipe_buf_release() accesses pipe->tmp_page
without taking any extra locks. From a glance through the callers of
pipe_buf_release(), it looks like FUSE is the only one that calls
pipe_buf_release() without having the pipe locked.

This bug should only lead to a memory leak, nothing terrible.

Fixes: dd3bb14f44a6 ("fuse: support splice() writing to fuse device")
