[patch 058/104] powerpc/spufs: add a missing mutex_unlock

From: Greg KH
Date: Wed Dec 03 2008 - 15:13:18 EST

2.6.27-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

From: Kou Ishizaki <kou.ishizaki@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>

commit 6747c2ee8abf749e63fee8cd01a9ee293e6a4247 upstream.

A mutex_unlock(&gang->aff_mutex) in spufs_create_context() is missing
in case spufs_context_open() fails. As a result, spu_create syscall
and spu_get_idle() may block.

This patch adds the mutex_unlock.
