Subject[PATCH 5.3 064/135] nvme-multipath: fix crash in nvme_mpath_clear_ctrl_paths
Date
From: Anton Eidelman <anton@lightbitslabs.com>

[ Upstream commit 763303a83a095a88c3a8a0d1abf97165db2e8bf5 ]

nvme_mpath_clear_ctrl_paths() iterates through
the ctrl->namespaces list while holding ctrl->scan_lock.
This does not seem to be the correct way of protecting
from concurrent list modification.

Specifically, nvme_scan_work() sorts ctrl->namespaces
AFTER unlocking scan_lock.

This may result in the following (rare) crash in ctrl disconnect
during scan_work:

BUG: kernel NULL pointer dereference, address: 0000000000000050

RIP: 0033:0x7f8d02bfb154

Fix:
After taking scan_lock in nvme_mpath_clear_ctrl_paths()
down_read(&ctrl->namespaces_rwsem) as well to make list traversal safe.
This will not cause deadlocks because taking scan_lock never happens
while holding the namespaces_rwsem.
Moreover, scan work downs namespaces_rwsem in the same order.

Alternative: sort ctrl->namespaces in nvme_scan_work()
while still holding the scan_lock.
This would leave nvme_mpath_clear_ctrl_paths() without correct protection
against ctrl->namespaces modification by anyone other than scan_work.
