Subject[PATCH 4.17 06/63] KVM: irqfd: fix race between EPOLLHUP and irq_bypass_register_consumer
Date
4.17-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Paolo Bonzini <pbonzini@redhat.com>

commit 9432a3175770e06cb83eada2d91fac90c977cb99 upstream.

A comment warning against this bug is there, but the code is not doing what
the comment says. Therefore it is possible that an EPOLLHUP races against
irq_bypass_register_consumer. The EPOLLHUP handler schedules irqfd_shutdown,
and if that runs soon enough, you get a use-after-free.
