Subject[PATCH 4.9 45/92] ath10k: fix kernel panic due to race in accessing arvif list
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Vasanthakumar Thiagarajan <vthiagar@qti.qualcomm.com>

commit ebaa4b1620bf69f2bc43cb45ea85fbafdaec23c3 upstream.

arvifs list is traversed within data_lock spin_lock in tasklet
context to fill channel information from the corresponding vif.
This means any access to arvifs list for add/del operations
should also be protected with the same spin_lock to avoid the
race. Fix this by performing list add/del on arvfis within the
data_lock. This could fix kernel panic something like the below.
