vfs: fix NULL pointer dereference in fsync_buffers_list()
Jan Kara [Tue, 4 Mar 2008 22:28:33 +0000 (14:28 -0800)]
Fix NULL pointer dereference in fsync_buffers_list() introduced by recent fix
of races in private_list handling.  Since bh->b_assoc_map has been cleared in
__remove_assoc_queue() we should really use original value stored in the
'mapping' variable.
