Subject[PATCH 4.4 08/99] [PATCH stable 4.4 net] net: rds: Fix NULL ptr use in rds_tcp_kill_sock
From: Mao Wenan <>

After the commit c4e97b06cfdc ("net: rds: force to destroy
connection if t_sock is NULL in rds_tcp_kill_sock()."),
it introduced null-ptr-deref in rds_tcp_kill_sock as below:

BUG: KASAN: null-ptr-deref on address 0000000000000020

If the first loop add the tc->t_sock = NULL to the tmp_list,
1). list_for_each_entry_safe(tc, _tc, &rds_tcp_conn_list, t_tcp_node)

then the second loop is to find connections to destroy, tc->t_sock
might equal NULL, and tc->t_sock->sk happens null-ptr-deref.
2). list_for_each_entry_safe(tc, _tc, &tmp_list, t_tcp_node)
