namespace: update event counter when umounting a deleted dentry
- m_start() in fs/namespace.c expects that ns->event is incremented each time a mount added or removed from ns->list. - umount_tree() removes items from the list but does not increment event counter, expecting that it's done before the function is called. - There are some codepaths that call umount_tree() without updating "event" counter. e.g. from __detach_mounts(). - When this happens m_start may reuse a cached mount structure that no longer belongs to ns->list (i.e. use after free which usually leads to infinite loop). This change fixes the above problem by incrementing global event counter before invoking umount_tree().
