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

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

From: Jan Kara <jack@suse.cz>

commit 091e26dfc156aeb3b73bc5c5f277e433ad39331c upstream.

Running AIO is pinning inode in memory using file reference. Once AIO
is completed using aio_complete(), file reference is put and inode can
be freed from memory. So we have to be sure that calling aio_complete()
is the last thing we do with the inode.
