[dm-devel] [2.6.29 PATCH 01] dm table: rework reference counting fix



From: Mikulas Patocka <mpatocka redhat com>

Fix an error introduced in dm-table-rework-reference-counting.patch.

When there is failure after table initialization, we need to use
dm_table_destroy, not dm_table_put, to free the table.

dm_table_put may be used only after dm_table_get.
