[PATCH AUTOSEL 4.19 123/123] ocfs2: fix potential use after free

From: Pan Bian <bianpan2016@xxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit 164f7e586739d07eb56af6f6d66acebb11f315c8 ]

ocfs2_get_dentry() calls iput(inode) to drop the reference count of
inode, and if the reference count hits 0, inode is freed.  However, in
this function, it then reads inode->i_generation, which may result in a
use after free bug.  Move the put operation later.
