Subject[PATCH 4.9 011/199] audit_get_nd(): dont unlock parent too early
Date
From: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>

[ Upstream commit 69924b89687a2923e88cc42144aea27868913d0e ]

if the child has been negative and just went positive
under us, we want coherent d_is_positive() and ->d_inode.
Don't unlock the parent until we'd done that work...
