Subject[PATCH net 0/3] vhost fixes for 3.14, -stable
This fixes a deadlock with vhost reported in the field,
as well as a theoretical race issue found by code

Patches 1+2 are needed for stable.

Thanks to Qin Chuanyu for reporting the issue!

Michael S. Tsirkin (3):
kref: add kref_sub_return
vhost: fix ref cnt checking deadlock
vhost: fix a theoretical race in device cleanup
