Subject[PATCH 1/2] mm,vmscan: Make unregister_shrinker() no-op if register_shrinker() failed.
Date
From: Tetsuo Handa <penguin-kernel@I-love.SAKURA.ne.jp>

Since allowing register_shrinker() callers to call unregister_shrinker()
when register_shrinker() failed can simplify error recovery path, this
patch makes unregister_shrinker() no-op when register_shrinker() failed.
Let's also make sure that double unregister_shrinker doesn't blow up as
well and NULL nr_deferred on successful de-registration to make the
clean up even simpler and prevent from potential memory corruptions.

[akaraliou.dev@gmail.com: set nr_deferred = NULL to handle double
unregister]
