Subject[ 63/82] ipv4: Do not use dead fib_info entries.
3.2-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

From: "David S. Miller" <>

[ Upstream commit dccd9ecc374462e5d6a5b8f8110415a86c2213d8 ]

Due to RCU lookups and RCU based release, fib_info objects can
be found during lookup which have fi->fib_dead set.

We must ignore these entries, otherwise we risk dereferencing
the parts of the entry which are being torn down.
