Subject: [PATCH 1/3] autofs: drop dentry reference only when it is never used

From: Pan Bian <bianpan2016@....com>

The function autofs_expire_run calls dput(dentry) to drop the reference
count of dentry. However, dentry is read via autofs_dentry_ino(dentry)
after that. This may result in a use-free-bug. The patch drops the
reference count of dentry only when it is never used.
