sunrpc/cache: drop reference when sunrpc_cache_pipe_upcall() detects a race
commit a6ab1e8126d205238defbb55d23661a3a5c6a0d8 upstream. sunrpc_cache_pipe_upcall() can detect a race if CACHE_PENDING is no longer set. In this case it aborts the queuing of the upcall. However it has already taken a new counted reference on "h" and doesn't "put" it, even though it frees the data structure holding the reference. So let's delay the "cache_get" until we know we need it. Fixes: f9e1aedc6c79 ("sunrpc/cache: remove races with queuing an upcall.") Signed-off-by: NeilBrown <neilb@suse.com> Signed-off-by: J.
