[Cluster-devel] [GFS2] bz231369 - GFS2 will panic if you misspell any mount options



This is the upstream patch. RHEL5 patch posted to rhkernel-list.
The gfs2 superblock pointer is NULL after a failed mount. When control
eventually goes to gfs2_kill_sb, we dereference this NULL pointer. This
patch ensures that the gfs2 superblock pointer is not NULL before being
dereferenced in gfs2_kill_sb.
