block: fix module reference leak on put_disk() call for cgroups throttle

commit 39a169b6 upstream.

get_disk(),get_gendisk() calls have non explicit side effect: they
increase the reference on the disk owner module.

The following is the correct sequence how to get a disk reference and
to put it:

    disk = get_gendisk(...);

    /* use disk */

    owner = disk->fops->owner;
    put_disk(disk);
    module_put(owner);

fs/block_dev.c is aware of this required module_put() call, but f.e.
blkg_conf_finish(), which is located in block/blk-cgroup.c, does not put
a module reference.  To see a leakage in action cgroups throttle config
can be used.  In the following script I'm removing throttle for /dev/ram0
(actually this is NOP, because throttle was never set for this device):

    # lsmod | grep brd
    brd                     5175  0
    # i=100; while [ $i -gt 0 ]; do echo "1:0 0" > \
        /sys/fs/cgroup/blkio/blkio.throttle.read_bps_device; i=$(($i - 1)); \
    done
    # lsmod | grep brd
    brd                     5175  100

Now brd module has 100 references.

The issue is fixed by calling module_put() just right away put_disk().
