pipe_rdwr_fasync: fix the error handling to prevent the leak/crash
Oleg Nesterov [Thu, 12 Mar 2009 21:31:28 +0000 (14:31 -0700)]
If the second fasync_helper() fails, pipe_rdwr_fasync() returns the error
but leaves the file on ->fasync_readers.

This was always wrong, but since 233e70f4228e78eb2f80dc6650f65d3ae3dbf17c
"saner FASYNC handling on file close" we have the new problem.  Because in
this case setfl() doesn't set FASYNC bit, __fput() will not do
->fasync(0), and we leak fasync_struct with ->fa_file pointing to the
freed file.
