Subject[PATCH 3.18 11/36] ipv6: fix calling in6_ifa_hold incorrectly for dad work
Date
3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Xin Long <lucien.xin@gmail.com>


[ Upstream commit f8a894b218138888542a5058d0e902378fd0d4ec ]

Now when starting the dad work in addrconf_mod_dad_work, if the dad work
is idle and queued, it needs to hold ifa.

The problem is there's one gap in [1], during which if the pending dad work
is removed elsewhere. It will miss to hold ifa, but the dad word is still
idea and queue.

if (!delayed_work_pending(&ifp->dad_work))
in6_ifa_hold(ifp);
<--------------[1]
mod_delayed_work(addrconf_wq, &ifp->dad_work, delay);

An use-after-free issue can be caused by this.

Chen Wei found this issue when WARN_ON(!hlist_unhashed(&ifp->addr_lst)) in
net6_ifa_finish_destroy was hit because of it.

As Hannes' suggestion, this patch is to fix it by holding ifa first in
addrconf_mod_dad_work, then calling mod_delayed_work and putting ifa if
the dad_work is already in queue.

Note that this patch did not choose to fix it with:

if (!mod_delayed_work(delay))
in6_ifa_hold(ifp);

As with it, when delay == 0, dad_work would be scheduled immediately, all
addrconf_mod_dad_work(0) callings had to be moved under ifp->lock.
