Subject: [PATCH 4.4 068/143] block/swim3: Fix -EBUSY error when re-opening device after unmount

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

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

[ Upstream commit 296dcc40f2f2e402facf7cd26cf3f2c8f4b17d47 ]

When the block device is opened with FMODE_EXCL, ref_count is set to -1.
This value doesn't get reset when the device is closed which means the
device cannot be opened again. Fix this by checking for refcount <= 0
in the release method.
