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

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

From: Harshula Jayasuriya <harshula@redhat.com>

commit e4daf1ffbe6cc3b12aab4d604e627829e93e9914 upstream.

The following call chain:
------------------------------------------------------------
nfs4_get_vfs_file
- nfsd_open
  - dentry_open
    - do_dentry_open
      - __get_file_write_access
        - get_write_access
          - return atomic_inc_unless_negative(&inode->i_writecount) ? 0 : -ETXTBSY;
------------------------------------------------------------

can result in the following state:
------------------------------------------------------------
struct nfs4_file {
...
  fi_fds = {0xffff880c1fa65c80, 0xffffffffffffffe6, 0x0},
  fi_access = {{
      counter = 0x1
    }, {
      counter = 0x0
    }},
...
------------------------------------------------------------

1) First time around, in nfs4_get_vfs_file() fp->fi_fds[O_WRONLY] is
NULL, hence nfsd_open() is called where we get status set to an error
and fp->fi_fds[O_WRONLY] to -ETXTBSY. Thus we do not reach
nfs4_file_get_access() and fi_access[O_WRONLY] is not incremented.

2) Second time around, in nfs4_get_vfs_file() fp->fi_fds[O_WRONLY] is
NOT NULL (-ETXTBSY), so nfsd_open() is NOT called, but
nfs4_file_get_access() IS called and fi_access[O_WRONLY] is incremented.
Thus we leave a landmine in the form of the nfs4_file data structure in
an incorrect state.

3) Eventually, when __nfs4_file_put_access() is called it finds
fi_access[O_WRONLY] being non-zero, it decrements it and calls
nfs4_file_put_fd() which tries to fput -ETXTBSY.
