Brian Norris - Feb. 26, 2014, 2:27 a.m.
Li Zefan reported an unbalanced locking issue, found by his
internal debugging feature on runtime. The particular case he was
looking at doesn't lead to a deadlock, as the structure that this lock
is embedded in is freed on error. But we should straighten out the error
handling.

Because several callers of jffs2_do_read_inode_internal() /
jffs2_do_read_inode() already handle the locking/unlocking and inode
clearing at their own level, let's just push any unlocks/clearing down
to the caller. This consistency is much easier to verify.

Not CC'd to -stable this time, since the bug seems non-critical, and it has
only limited testing (I did a few quick sanity tests, and Li tested an earlier
revision)
