Subject[PATCH 5.16 083/186] net/smc: fix connection leak
From: D. Wythe <>

commit 9f1c50cf39167ff71dc5953a3234f3f6eeb8fcb5 upstream.

There's a potential leak issue under following execution sequence :

smc_release smc_connect_work
if (sk->sk_state == SMC_INIT)
sk.sk_state = SMC_ACTIVE
switch(sk->sk_state) {
// then wait peer closed

Unfortunately, tcp_abort() may discard CLC CONFIRM messages that are
still in the tcp send buffer, in which case our connection token cannot
be delivered to the server side, which means that we cannot get a
passive close message at all. Therefore, it is impossible for the to be
disconnected at all.

This patch tries a very simple way to avoid this issue, once the state
has changed to SMC_ACTIVE after tcp_abort(), we can actively abort the
smc connection, considering that the state is SMC_INIT before
tcp_abort(), abandoning the complete disconnection process should not
cause too much problem.

In fact, this problem may exist as long as the CLC CONFIRM message is
not received by the server. Whether a timer should be added after
smc_close_final() needs to be discussed in the future. But even so, this
patch provides a faster release for connection in above case, it should
also be valuable.
