Subject[PATCH v2 0/2] Fix a race condition vulnerability in "_show" functions
This patchset fixes a race condition vulnerability in the "_show"
functions that access a channel ring buffer.

Changes in v2:
- In v1, I proposed using “vmbus_connection.channel_mutex” in the
“_show” functions to prevent the race condition. However, using this
mutex could result in a deadlock, so a new approach is needed.

- Patch 1 is new and consists of a code refactor.

- Patch 2 introduces a new mutex lock in the “vmbus_channel” struct,
and the new mutex is used to eliminate the race condition.

Kimberly Brown (2):
