Subject: [PATCH 3.4 62/99] ext4: fix possible use-after-free with AIO

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

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

From: Jan Kara <jack@...e.cz>

commit 091e26dfc156aeb3b73bc5c5f277e433ad39331c upstream.

Running AIO is pinning inode in memory using file reference. Once AIO
is completed using aio_complete(), file reference is put and inode can
be freed from memory. So we have to be sure that calling aio_complete()
is the last thing we do with the inode.
