Subject[PATCH 4.4 030/101] block: fix module reference leak on put_disk() call for cgroups throttle
Date
4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Roman Pen <roman.penyaev@profitbricks.com>

commit 39a169b62b415390398291080dafe63aec751e0a upstream.

get_disk(),get_gendisk() calls have non explicit side effect: they
increase the reference on the disk owner module.

The following is the correct sequence how to get a disk reference and
to put it:

disk = get_gendisk(...);

/* use disk */

owner = disk->fops->owner;
put_disk(disk);
module_put(owner);

fs/block_dev.c is aware of this required module_put() call, but f.e.
blkg_conf_finish(), which is located in block/blk-cgroup.c, does not put
a module reference. To see a leakage in action cgroups throttle config
can be used. In the following script I'm removing throttle for /dev/ram0
(actually this is NOP, because throttle was never set for this device):

# lsmod | grep brd
brd 5175 0
# i=100; while [ $i -gt 0 ]; do echo "1:0 0" > \
/sys/fs/cgroup/blkio/blkio.throttle.read_bps_device; i=$(($i - 1)); \
done
# lsmod | grep brd
brd 5175 100

Now brd module has 100 references.

The issue is fixed by calling module_put() just right away put_disk().
