SubjectRe: refcount_t: underflow; use-after-free with CIFS umount after scsi-misc commit ef2cc88e2a205b8a11a19e78db63a70d3728cdf5
Hi, I ran the last good kernel with several boot-up, cifs mount, un-mount, shut down cycles without encountering the problem.

After applying the patch from <>:

diff --git a/fs/cifs/smb2pdu.c b/fs/cifs/smb2pdu.c
index 0ab6b1200288..d2658f51ff60 100644
--- a/fs/cifs/smb2pdu.c
+++ b/fs/cifs/smb2pdu.c
@@ -1847,7 +1847,8 @@ SMB2_tdis(const unsigned int xid, struct cifs_tcon *tcon)
if ((tcon->need_reconnect) || (tcon->ses->need_reconnect))
return 0;

- close_shroot(&tcon->crfid);
+ if (tcon->crfid.is_valid)
+ close_shroot(&tcon->crfid);

to kernel 5.5.0-rc1 I no longer experience the problem.
