Subject[PATCH 4.19 45/46] proc/sysctl: dont return ENOMEM on lookup when a table is unregistering
Date
4.19-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Ivan Delalande <colona@arista.com>

commit ea5751ccd665a2fd1b24f9af81f6167f0718c5f6 upstream.

proc_sys_lookup can fail with ENOMEM instead of ENOENT when the
corresponding sysctl table is being unregistered. In our case we see
this upon opening /proc/sys/net/*/conf files while network interfaces
are being deleted, which confuses our configuration daemon.

The problem was successfully reproduced and this fix tested on v4.9.122
and v4.20-rc6.

v2: return ERR_PTRs in all cases when proc_sys_make_inode fails instead
of mixing them with NULL. Thanks Al Viro for the feedback.

Fixes: ace0c791e6c3 ("proc/sysctl: Don't grab i_lock under sysctl_lock.")
