ceph_writepages_start() invokes ceph_osdc_start_request(), which
increases the refcount of the ceph_osd_request object "req" and then
submit the request.

When ceph_writepages_start() returns or a new object is assigned to
"req", the original local reference of "req" becomes invalid, so the
refcount should be decreased to keep refcount balanced.

The reference counting issue happens in a normal path of
ceph_writepages_start(). Before NULL assigned to "req", the function
forgets to decrease its refcnt increased by ceph_osdc_start_request()
and will cause a refcnt leak.

Fix this issue by calling ceph_osdc_put_request() before the original
object pointed by "req" becomes invalid.

Hi Xiyu,

I think this reference is put in writepages_finish().  Putting it in
ceph_writepages_start() will result in freed pointer dereference in
libceph (in __complete_request() or elsewhere).

Thanks,

                Ilya
