Hi!

I've done debugging on this issue
https://syzkaller.appspot.com/bug?id=420258a304e5d92cfef6b0097f87b42506e1db08
and I want to ask you about 
proper way of fixing it. The problem was in case sbi->s_mmp_tsk hasn’t
started at the time of kthread_stop() call. In that case allocated data
won't be freed.

I wrote fix patch, but I am confused about it, because I didn't find
any kernel code like this. I don't think, that adding new members to
struct super_block is good idea, that's why I came to that decision: 

diff --git a/fs/ext4/super.c b/fs/ext4/super.c
index b9693680463a..9c33e97bd5c5 100644
--- a/fs/ext4/super.c

 	del_timer_sync(&sbi->s_err_report);

+	if (sbi->s_mmp_tsk) {

+	}
 failed_mount2:
 	rcu_read_lock();
 	group_desc = rcu_dereference(sbi->s_group_desc);


I look forward to hearing your perspective on this patch :)

With regards,
Pavel Skripkin
