[PATCH 3.18 23/47] ext4: fix possible use after free in ext4_quota_enable

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


From: Pan Bian <bianpan2016@xxxxxxx>

commit 61157b24e60fb3cd1f85f2c76a7b1d628f970144 upstream.

The function frees qf_inode via iput but then pass qf_inode to
lockdep_set_quota_inode on the failure path. This may result in a
use-after-free bug. The patch frees df_inode only when it is never used.

Fixes: daf647d2dd5 ("ext4: add lockdep annotations for i_data_sem")
