[Cluster-devel] [PATCH 1/2] GFS2: fix potential NULL pointer dereference



From: Michal Nazarewicz <mina86 mina86 com>

Commit [e66cf1610: GFS2: Use lockref for glocks] replaced call:
    atomic_read(&gi->gl->gl_ref) == 0
with:
    __lockref_is_dead(&gl->gl_lockref)
therefore changing how gl is accessed, from gi->gl to plan gl.
However, gl can be a NULL pointer, and so gi->gl needs to be
used instead (which is guaranteed not to be NULL because fo
the while loop checking that condition).
