Charan Teja reported a 'use-after-free' in dmabuffs_dname [1], which
happens if the dma_buf_release() is called while the userspace is
accessing the dma_buf pseudo fs's dmabuffs_dname() in another process,
and dma_buf_release() releases the dmabuf object when the last reference
to the struct file goes away.

I discussed with Arnd Bergmann, and he suggested that rather than tying
the dma_buf_release() to the file_operations' release(), we can tie it to
the dentry_operations' d_release(), which will be called when the last ref
to the dentry is removed.

The path exercised by __fput() calls f_op->release() first, and then calls
dput, which eventually calls d_op->d_release().

In the 'normal' case, when no userspace access is happening via dma_buf
pseudo fs, there should be exactly one fd, file, dentry and inode, so
closing the fd will kill of everything right away.

In the presented case, the dentry's d_release() will be called only when
the dentry's last ref is released.

Therefore, lets move dma_buf_release() from fops->release() to
d_ops->d_release().

Many thanks to Arnd for his FS insights :)

The patch looks correct to me.

Reviewed-by: Arnd Bergmann <arnd@arndb.de>

Obviously this should still be verified against the original report if possible.

I'd suggest rearranging the file to avoid the forward declaration, even
if it makes it a little harder to review the change, the resulting code
will remain organized more logically.

I think the check here is redundant and it's clearer without it.
