Subject[PATCH 3.16 342/346] xenbus: don't BUG() on user mode induced condition
3.16.39-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Jan Beulich <JBeulich@suse.com>

commit 0beef634b86a1350c31da5fcc2992f0d7c8a622b upstream.

Inability to locate a user mode specified transaction ID should not
lead to a kernel crash. For other than XS_TRANSACTION_START also
don't issue anything to xenbus if the specified ID doesn't match that
of any active transaction.
