4.7-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Mikulas Patocka <mpato...@redhat.com>

commit a5d60783df61fbb67b7596b8a0f6b4b2e05251d5 upstream.

Move log_one_block()'s atomic_inc(&lc->io_blocks) before bio_alloc() to
fix a bug that the target hangs if bio_alloc() fails.  The error path
does put_io_block(lc), so atomic_inc(&lc->io_blocks) must occur before
invoking the error path to avoid underflow of lc->io_blocks.
