audit: fix refcounting in audit-tree
Refcounting of fsnotify_mark in audit tree is broken. E.g: refcount create_chunk alloc_chunk 1 fsnotify_add_mark 2 untag_chunk fsnotify_get_mark 3 fsnotify_destroy_mark audit_tree_freeing_mark 2 fsnotify_put_mark 1 fsnotify_put_mark 0 via destroy_list fsnotify_mark_destroy -1 This was reported by various people as triggering Oops when stopping auditd. We could just remove the put_mark from audit_tree_freeing_mark() but that would break freeing via inode destruction. So this patch simply omits a put_mark after calling destroy_mark or adds a get_mark before. The additional get_mark is necessary where there's no other put_mark after fsnotify_destroy_mark() since it assumes that the caller is holding a reference (or the inode is keeping the mark pinned, not the case here AFAICS).
