Subject[PATCH net] xen-netback: avoid race that can lead to NULL pointer dereference
Date
Commit 2ac061ce97f4 ("xen/netback: cleanup init and deinit code")
introduced a problem. In function xenvif_disconnect_queue(), the value of
queue->rx_irq is zeroed *before* queue->task is stopped. Unfortunately that
task may call notify_remote_via_irq(queue->rx_irq) and calling that
function with a zero value results in a NULL pointer dereference in
evtchn_from_irq().

This patch simply re-orders things, stopping all tasks before zero-ing the
irq values, thereby avoiding the possibility of the race.
