Subject[PATCH] ipvs: fix race between ip_vs_conn_new() and ip_vs_del_dest()
Date
We came across infinite loop in ipvs when using ipvs in docker
env.

When ipvs receives new packets and cannot find an ipvs connection,
it will create a new connection, then if the dest is unavailable
(i.e. IP_VS_DEST_F_AVAILABLE), the packet will be dropped sliently.

But if the dropped packet is the first packet of this connection,
the connection control timer never has a chance to start and the
ipvs connection cannot be released. This will lead to memory leak, or
infinite loop in cleanup_net() when net namespace is released like
this:

ip_vs_conn_net_cleanup at ffffffffa0a9f31a [ip_vs]
__ip_vs_cleanup at ffffffffa0a9f60a [ip_vs]
ops_exit_list at ffffffff81567a49
cleanup_net at ffffffff81568b40
process_one_work at ffffffff810a851b
worker_thread at ffffffff810a9356
kthread at ffffffff810b0b6f
ret_from_fork at ffffffff81697a18

race condition:
CPU1 CPU2
ip_vs_in()
ip_vs_conn_new()
ip_vs_del_dest()
__ip_vs_unlink_dest()
~IP_VS_DEST_F_AVAILABLE
cp->dest && !IP_VS_DEST_F_AVAILABLE
__ip_vs_conn_put
...
cleanup_net ---> infinite looping

Fix this by checking whether the timer already started.
