    Subject[PATCH 5.10 051/105] 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) {
    case SMC_ACTIVE:
    // 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.
