Subject: [PATCH 3.19.y-ckt 112/170] KVM: fix spin_lock_init order on x86

3.19.8-ckt18 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

---8<------------------------------------------------------------

From: Paolo Bonzini <pbonzini@...hat.com>

commit e9ad4ec8379ad1ba6f68b8ca1c26b50b5ae0a327 upstream.

Moving the initialization earlier is needed in 4.6 because
kvm_arch_init_vm is now using mmu_lock, causing lockdep to
complain:

[  284.440294] INFO: trying to register non-static key.
[  284.445259] the code is fine but needs lockdep annotation.
[  284.450736] turning off the locking correctness validator.

[  284.568381]  [<ffffffffa02dbf7a>] kvm_arch_init_vm+0x1ea/0x200 [kvm]
[  284.574740]  [<ffffffffa02bff3f>] kvm_dev_ioctl+0xbf/0x4d0 [kvm]

However, it also helps fixing a preexisting problem, which is why this
patch is also good for stable kernels: kvm_create_vm was incrementing
current->mm->mm_count but not decrementing it at the out_err label (in
case kvm_init_mmu_notifier failed).  The new initialization order makes
it possible to add the required mmdrop without adding a new error label.
