Subject[PATCH 4.14 016/173] rxrpc: Fix insufficient receive notification generation
From: David Howells <>

[ Upstream commit f71dbf2fb28489a79bde0dca1c8adfb9cdb20a6b ]

In rxrpc_input_data(), rxrpc_notify_socket() is called if the base sequence
number of the packet is immediately following the hard-ack point at the end
of the function. However, this isn't sufficient, since the recvmsg side
may have been advancing the window and then overrun the position in which
we're adding - at which point rx_hard_ack >= seq0 and no notification is

Fix this by always generating a notification at the end of the input

Without this, a long call may stall, possibly indefinitely.

Fixes: 248f219cb8bc ("rxrpc: Rewrite the data and ack handling code")
