epoll: clear the tfile_check_list on -ELOOP
An epoll_ctl(,EPOLL_CTL_ADD,,) operation can return '-ELOOP' to prevent circular epoll dependencies from being created. However, in that case we do not properly clear the 'tfile_check_list'. Thus, add a call to clear_tfile_check_list() for the -ELOOP case. Signed-off-by: Jason Baron <jbaron@redhat.com> Reported-by: Yurij M.
