Sigh. put_filesystem() is part of fs internals. I'd be tempted to add

static void put_filesystem(struct file_system_type *fs)
{
module_put(fs->owner);
}

and cc that for stable. And send a patch to add EXPORT_SYMBOL and queue
it for removal. Or just ignore the stable@ since it's unlikely to be
ever met in the wild and just request the EXPORT_SYMBOL.
