3.13.11.7 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Pavel Shilovsky <pshilovsky at samba.org>

commit 038bc961c31b070269ecd07349a7ee2e839d4fec upstream.

If we get into read_into_pages() from cifs_readv_receive() and then
loose a network, we issue cifs_reconnect that moves all mids to
a private list and issue their callbacks. The callback of the async
read request sets a mid to retry, frees it and wakes up a process
that waits on the rdata completion.

After the connection is established we return from read_into_pages()
with a short read, use the mid that was freed before and try to read
the remaining data from the a newly created socket. Both actions are
not what we want to do. In reconnect cases (-EAGAIN) we should not
mask off the error with a short read but should return the error
code instead.
