Subject: [PATCH 3.13 172/259] fs: umount on symlink leaks mnt count

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

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

From: Vasily Averin <vvs@...allels.com>

commit 295dc39d941dc2ae53d5c170365af4c9d5c16212 upstream.

Currently umount on symlink blocks following umount:

/vz is separate mount

# ls /vz/ -al | grep test
drwxr-xr-x.  2 root root       4096 Jul 19 01:14 testdir
lrwxrwxrwx.  1 root root         11 Jul 19 01:16 testlink -> /vz/testdir
# umount -l /vz/testlink
umount: /vz/testlink: not mounted (expected)

# lsof /vz
# umount /vz
umount: /vz: device is busy. (unexpected)

In this case mountpoint_last() gets an extra refcount on path->mnt
