[PATCH] namespaces: fix exit race by splitting exit
Fix exit race by splitting the nsproxy putting into two pieces. First piece reduces the nsproxy refcount. If we dropped the last reference, then it puts the mnt_ns, and returns the nsproxy as a hint to the caller. Else it returns NULL. The second piece of exiting task namespaces sets tsk->nsproxy to NULL, and drops the references to other namespaces and frees the nsproxy only if an nsproxy was passed in. A little awkward and should probably be reworked, but hopefully it fixes the NFS oops. Signed-off-by: Serge E.
