SubjectRe: [PATCH] Drivers: hv: hv_balloon: keep locks balanced on add_memory() failure


----- Original Message -----
> When add_memory() fails the following BUG is observed:
> [ 743.646107] hv_balloon: hot_add memory failed error is -17
> [ 743.679973]
> [ 743.680930] =====================================
> [ 743.680930] [ BUG: bad unlock balance detected! ]
> [ 743.680930] 3.19.0-rc5_bug1131426+ #552 Not tainted
> [ 743.680930] -------------------------------------
> [ 743.680930] kworker/0:2/255 is trying to release lock
> (&dm_device.ha_region_mutex) at:
> [ 743.680930] [<ffffffff81aae5fe>] mutex_unlock+0xe/0x10
> [ 743.680930] but there are no more locks to release!
>
> This happens as we don't acquire ha_region_mutex and hot_add_req() expects us
> to as it does unconditional mutex_unlock(). Acquire the lock on the error
> path.
