Subject[PATCH 4.4 35/50] netfilter: invoke synchronize_rcu after set the _hook_ to NULL
Date
4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Liping Zhang <zlpnobody@gmail.com>


[ Upstream commit 3b7dabf029478bb80507a6c4500ca94132a2bc0b ]

Otherwise, another CPU may access the invalid pointer. For example:
CPU0 CPU1
- rcu_read_lock();
- pfunc = _hook_;
_hook_ = NULL; -
mod unload -
- pfunc(); // invalid, panic
- rcu_read_unlock();

So we must call synchronize_rcu() to wait the rcu reader to finish.

Also note, in nf_nat_snmp_basic_fini, synchronize_rcu() will be invoked
by later nf_conntrack_helper_unregister, but I'm inclined to add a
explicit synchronize_rcu after set the nf_nat_snmp_hook to NULL. Depend
on such obscure assumptions is not a good idea.

Last, in nfnetlink_cttimeout, we use kfree_rcu to free the time object,
so in cttimeout_exit, invoking rcu_barrier() is not necessary at all,
remove it too.
