Subject[PATCH v3 0/3] vsock/virtio: several fixes in the .probe() and .remove()
Date
During the review of "[PATCH] vsock/virtio: Initialize core virtio vsock
before registering the driver", Stefan pointed out some possible issues
in the .probe() and .remove() callbacks of the virtio-vsock driver.

This series tries to solve these issues:
- Patch 1 adds RCU critical sections to avoid use-after-free of
'the_virtio_vsock' pointer.
- Patch 2 stops workers before to call vdev->config->reset(vdev) to
be sure that no one is accessing the device.
- Patch 3 moves the works flush at the end of the .remove() to avoid
use-after-free of 'vsock' object.

v3:
- Patch 1: use rcu_dereference_protected() to get the_virtio_vosck value in
the virtio_vsock_probe() [Jason]

v2: https://patchwork.kernel.org/cover/11022343/

v1: https://patchwork.kernel.org/cover/10964733/

Before this series the guest crashes in a few second. After this series the
test runs (~12h) without issues.
Tested on an SMP guest (-smp 4 -monitor tcp:127.0.0.1:1234,server,nowait)
with these scripts to stress the .probe()/.remove() path:

- guest
while true; do
cat /dev/urandom | nc-vsock -l 4321 > /dev/null &
cat /dev/urandom | nc-vsock -l 5321 > /dev/null &
cat /dev/urandom | nc-vsock -l 6321 > /dev/null &
cat /dev/urandom | nc-vsock -l 7321 > /dev/null &
wait
done

- host
while true; do
cat /dev/urandom | nc-vsock 3 4321 > /dev/null &
cat /dev/urandom | nc-vsock 3 5321 > /dev/null &
cat /dev/urandom | nc-vsock 3 6321 > /dev/null &
cat /dev/urandom | nc-vsock 3 7321 > /dev/null &
sleep 2
echo "device_del v1" | nc 127.0.0.1 1234
sleep 1
echo "device_add vhost-vsock-pci,id=v1,guest-cid=3" | nc 127.0.0.1 1234
sleep 1
done

Stefano Garzarella (3):
vsock/virtio: use RCU to avoid use-after-free on the_virtio_vsock
vsock/virtio: stop workers during the .remove()
vsock/virtio: fix flush of works during the .remove()
