Fix races around the access to ->s_options
Al Viro [Fri, 8 May 2009 20:05:57 +0000 (16:05 -0400)]
Put generic_show_options read access to s_options under rcu_read_lock,
split save_mount_options() into "we are setting it the first time"
(uses in foo_fill_super()) and "we are relacing and freeing the old one",
synchronize_rcu() before kfree() in the latter.
