SUNRPC: Fix a race in rpc_info_open
There is a race between rpc_info_open and rpc_release_client() in that nothing stops a process from opening the file after the clnt->cl_kref goes to zero. Fix this by using atomic_inc_unless_zero()... Reported-by: J. Bruce Fields <bfields@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Trond Myklebust <Trond.Myklebust@netapp.com> Cc: stable@kernel.org
