[lvm-devel] [PATCH] Fix format instance handling in _vg_read



The _vg_read fn uses a global format_instance (the "fid") and then it tries to
call vg_read iteratively with the fid as a parameter (and so assigning it to
the vg struct), calling free_vg if the vg was found incorrect.

The problem is that free_vg would also free any fid it has assigned, so we need
to handle this somehow. To be sure that such situation does not happen, let's
increase the fid's ref_count before the iteration where we call vg_read and
decrement it afterwards. That way we can be sure that the fid is not destroyed
prematurely within the free_vg call in the iteration.

Since we create the fid manually and handle it manually in _vg_read fn, we need
to destroy it manually as well by calling the _destroy_fid fn directly if it's
not done withing the free_vg call.

This patch also adds a few missing free_vg calls.

Bad luck the vg_read is a bit complex, but we need this patch to avoid memory
leaks and premature destruction of the fid. This is the only place where we need
to do this magic. The _vg_read fn likes using the fid globally and fiddle with
it in an obscure way, so here's a small obscure fix :)
