Subject: [PATCH 4.14 085/135] autofs: drop dentry reference only when it is never used

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

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

[ Upstream commit 63ce5f552beb9bdb41546b3a26c4374758b21815 ]

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.
