Subject[PATCH 4.19 151/321] vxlan: Fix error path in __vxlan_dev_create()
Date
From: Petr Machata <petrm@mellanox.com>

[ Upstream commit 6db9246871394b3a136cd52001a0763676563840 ]

When a failure occurs in rtnl_configure_link(), the current code
calls unregister_netdevice() to roll back the earlier call to
register_netdevice(), and jumps to errout, which calls
vxlan_fdb_destroy().

However unregister_netdevice() calls transitively ndo_uninit, which is
vxlan_uninit(), and that already takes care of deleting the default FDB
entry by calling vxlan_fdb_delete_default(). Since the entry added
earlier in __vxlan_dev_create() is exactly the default entry, the
cleanup code in the errout block always leads to double free and thus a
panic.

Besides, since vxlan_fdb_delete_default() always destroys the FDB entry
with notification enabled, the deletion of the default entry is notified
even before the addition was notified.

Instead, move the unregister_netdevice() call after the manual destroy,
which solves both problems.

Fixes: 0241b836732f ("vxlan: fix default fdb entry netlink notify ordering during netdev create")
