3.5.7.3 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Eugene Shatokhin <eugene.shatokhin@rosalab.ru>

commit 24ec19b0ae83a385ad9c55520716da671274b96c upstream.

In ext4_xattr_set_acl(), if ext4_journal_start() returns an error,
posix_acl_release() will not be called for 'acl' which may result in a
memory leak.

This patch fixes that.
