Subject[PATCH 4.9 38/83] Revert "ceph: fix dentry leak in splice_dentry()"
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Yan, Zheng <zyan@redhat.com>

commit efe328230dc01aa0b1269aad0b5fae73eea4677a upstream.

This reverts commit 8b8f53af1ed9df88a4c0fbfdf3db58f62060edf3.

splice_dentry() is used by three places. For two places, req->r_dentry
is passed to splice_dentry(). In the case of error, req->r_dentry does
not get updated. So splice_dentry() should not drop reference.
