Subject[PATCH 5.4 284/309] drop_monitor: Do not cancel uninitialized work item
Date
From: Ido Schimmel <idosch@mellanox.com>

[ Upstream commit dfa7f709596be5ca46c070d4f8acbb344322056a ]

Drop monitor uses a work item that takes care of constructing and
sending netlink notifications to user space. In case drop monitor never
started to monitor, then the work item is uninitialized and not
associated with a function.

Therefore, a stop command from user space results in canceling an
uninitialized work item which leads to the following warning [1].

Fix this by not processing a stop command if drop monitor is not
currently monitoring.
