Subject[PATCH 4.19 015/142] tcp: fix NULL ref in tail loss probe
Date
4.19-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Yuchung Cheng <ycheng@google.com>

[ Upstream commit b2b7af861122a0c0f6260155c29a1b2e594cd5b5 ]

TCP loss probe timer may fire when the retranmission queue is empty but
has a non-zero tp->packets_out counter. tcp_send_loss_probe will call
tcp_rearm_rto which triggers NULL pointer reference by fetching the
retranmission queue head in its sub-routines.

Add a more detailed warning to help catch the root cause of the inflight
accounting inconsistency.
