[Xen-devel] [PATCH 1/2] xen: xenbus_dev_frontend: Fix XS_TRANSACTION_END handling

Commit fd8aa9095a95 ("xen: optimize xenbus driver for multiple
concurrent xenstore accesses") made a subtle change to the semantic of
xenbus_dev_request_and_reply() and xenbus_transaction_end().

Before on an error response to XS_TRANSACTION_END
xenbus_dev_request_and_reply() would not decrement the active
transaction counter. But xenbus_transaction_end() has always counted the
transaction as finished regardless of the response.

The new behavior is that xenbus_dev_request_and_reply() and
xenbus_transaction_end() will always count the transaction as finished
regardless the response code (handled in xs_request_exit()).

But xenbus_dev_frontend tries to end a transaction on closing of the
device if the XS_TRANSACTION_END failed before. Trying to close the
transaction twice corrupts the reference count. So fix this by also
considering a transaction closed if we have sent XS_TRANSACTION_END once
regardless of the return code.
