proc 1/2: do PDE usecounting even for ->read_proc, ->write_proc
struct proc_dir_entry::owner is going to be removed. Now it's only necessary to protect PDEs which are using ->read_proc, ->write_proc hooks. However, ->owner assignments are racy and make it very easy for someone to switch ->owner on live PDE (as some subsystems do) without fixing refcounts and so on. http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12454 So, ->owner is on death row. Proxy file operations exist already (proc_file_operations), just bump usecount when necessary. Signed-off-by: Alexey Dobriyan <adobriyan@gmail.com>
