Subject: [PATCH] SUNRPC: Fix validity issues with rpc_pipefs sb->s_fs_info

commit 642fe4d00db56d65060ce2fd4c105884414acb16 upstream.

rpc_kill_sb() must defer calling put_net() until after the notifier
has been called, since most (all?) of the notifier callbacks assume
that sb->s_fs_info points to a valid net namespace. It also must not
call put_net() if the call to rpc_fill_super was unsuccessful.
