Subject: [PATCH 72/78] libceph: only kunmap kmapped pages

commit 5ce765a540f34d1e2005e1210f49f67fdf11e997 upstream.

In write_partial_msg_pages(), pages need to be kmapped in order to
perform a CRC-32c calculation on them.  As an artifact of the way
this code used to be structured, the kunmap() call was separated
from the kmap() call and both were done conditionally.  But the
conditions under which the kmap() and kunmap() calls were made
differed, so there was a chance a kunmap() call would be done on a
page that had not been mapped.

The symptom of this was tripping a BUG() in kunmap_high() when
pkmap_count[nr] became 0.
