The issue here is that we are trying to reference a network namespace (struct
net *) that is long gone (i.e., L532 below -- c_net is the culprit).

528 spin_lock_irq(&rds_tcp_conn_lock);
529 list_for_each_entry_safe(tc, _tc, &rds_tcp_conn_list,
t_tcp_node) {
530 struct net *c_net = tc->t_cpath->cp_conn->c_net;
532 if (net != c_net || !tc->t_sock)
533 continue;
534 if (!list_has_conn(&tmp_list, tc->t_cpath->cp_conn))
535 list_move_tail(&tc->t_tcp_node, &tmp_list);
536 }
537 spin_unlock_irq(&rds_tcp_conn_lock);
538 list_for_each_entry_safe(tc, _tc, &tmp_list, t_tcp_node) {
539 rds_tcp_conn_paths_destroy(tc->t_cpath->cp_conn);
540 rds_conn_destroy(tc->t_cpath->cp_conn);
541 }

When a network namespace is deleted, devices within that namespace are
unregistered and removed one by one. RDS is notified about this event through
rds_tcp_dev_event() callback. When the loopback device is removed from the
namespace, the above RDS callback function destroys all the RDS connections in
that namespace.

The loop@L529 above walks through each of the rds_tcp connection in the global
list (rds_tcp_conn_list) to see if that connection belongs to the namespace in
question. It collects all such connections and destroys them (L538-540).
However, it leaves behind some of the rds_tcp connections that shared the same
underlying RDS connection (L534 and 535). These connections with pointer to
stale network namespace are left behind in the global list. When the 2nd network
namespace is deleted, we will hit the above stale pointer and hit UAF panic.

I think we should move away from global list to a per-namespace list. The global
list are used only in two places (both of which are per-namespace operations):

- to destroy all the RDS connections belonging to a namespace when the
network namespace is being deleted.
- to reset all the RDS connections when socket parameters for a namespace are
modified using sysctl
