Subject[061/152] af_unix: limit unix_tot_inflight
2.6.36-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------


From: Eric Dumazet <eric.dumazet@gmail.com>

[ Upstream commit 9915672d41273f5b77f1b3c29b391ffb7732b84b ]

Vegard Nossum found a unix socket OOM was possible, posting an exploit
program.

My analysis is we can eat all LOWMEM memory before unix_gc() being
called from unix_release_sock(). Moreover, the thread blocked in
unix_gc() can consume huge amount of time to perform cleanup because of
huge working set.

One way to handle this is to have a sensible limit on unix_tot_inflight,
tested from wait_for_unix_gc() and to force a call to unix_gc() if this
limit is hit.

This solves the OOM and also reduce overall latencies, and should not
slowdown normal workloads.
