Subject[PATCH 4.13 10/44] netlink: fix netlink_ack() extack race
Date
4.13-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Johannes Berg <johannes.berg@intel.com>


[ Upstream commit 48044eb490be71c203e14dd89e8bae87209eab52 ]

It seems that it's possible to toggle NETLINK_F_EXT_ACK
through setsockopt() while another thread/CPU is building
a message inside netlink_ack(), which could then trigger
the WARN_ON()s I added since if it goes from being turned
off to being turned on between allocating and filling the
message, the skb could end up being too small.

Avoid this whole situation by storing the value of this
flag in a separate variable and using that throughout the
function instead.
