Subject: [PATCH 3.13 131/187] NFSD: Decrease nfsd_users in nfsd_startup_generic fail -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Kinglong Mee <>

commit d9499a95716db0d4bc9b67e88fd162133e7d6b08 upstream.

A memory allocation failure could cause nfsd_startup_generic to fail, in
which case nfsd_users wouldn't be incorrectly left elevated.

After nfsd restarts nfsd_startup_generic will then succeed without doing
anything--the first consequence is likely nfs4_start_net finding a bad
laundry_wq and crashing.
