ext4: fix memory leak in ext4_xattr_set_acl()'s error path
Eugene Shatokhin [Thu, 8 Nov 2012 20:11:11 +0000 (15:11 -0500)]
commit 24ec19b0ae83a385ad9c55520716da671274b96c upstream.

In ext4_xattr_set_acl(), if ext4_journal_start() returns an error,
posix_acl_release() will not be called for 'acl' which may result in a
memory leak.

This patch fixes that.
