Subject: [ 044/108] audit: fix refcounting in audit-tree

From: Greg KH <gregkh@...uxfoundation.org>

3.5-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Miklos Szeredi <mszeredi@...e.cz>

commit a2140fc0cb0325bb6384e788edd27b9a568714e2 upstream.

Refcounting of fsnotify_mark in audit tree is broken.  E.g:

                              refcount
create_chunk
  alloc_chunk                 1
  fsnotify_add_mark           2

untag_chunk
  fsnotify_get_mark           3
  fsnotify_destroy_mark
    audit_tree_freeing_mark   2
  fsnotify_put_mark           1
  fsnotify_put_mark           0
  via destroy_list
    fsnotify_mark_destroy    -1

This was reported by various people as triggering Oops when stopping auditd.

We could just remove the put_mark from audit_tree_freeing_mark() but that would
break freeing via inode destruction.  So this patch simply omits a put_mark
after calling destroy_mark or adds a get_mark before.

The additional get_mark is necessary where there's no other put_mark after
fsnotify_destroy_mark() since it assumes that the caller is holding a reference
(or the inode is keeping the mark pinned, not the case here AFAICS).
