Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 4.9 07/16] watchdog: Fix possible use-after-free by calling del_timer_sync()
Date
From: Zou Wei <zou_wei@huawei.com>

[ Upstream commit d0212f095ab56672f6f36aabc605bda205e1e0bf ]

This driver's remove path calls del_timer(). However, that function
does not wait until the timer handler finishes. This means that the
timer handler may still be running after the driver's remove function
has finished, which would result in a use-after-free.

Fix by calling del_timer_sync(), which makes sure the timer handler
has finished, and unable to re-schedule itself.
