Subject[PATCH 4.9 14/83] 9p: clear dangling pointers in p9stat_free
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Dominique Martinet <dominique.martinet@cea.fr>

[ Upstream commit 62e3941776fea8678bb8120607039410b1b61a65 ]

p9stat_free is more of a cleanup function than a 'free' function as it
only frees the content of the struct; there are chances of use-after-free
if it is improperly used (e.g. p9stat_free called twice as it used to be
possible to)

Clearing dangling pointers makes the function idempotent and safer to use.
