Subject[PATCH 3.8 42/81] bridge: fix NULL pointer deref of br_port_get_rcu
Date
3.8.13.12 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Hong Zhiguo <zhiguohong@tencent.com>

[ Upstream commit 716ec052d2280d511e10e90ad54a86f5b5d4dcc2 ]

The NULL deref happens when br_handle_frame is called between these
2 lines of del_nbp:
dev->priv_flags &= ~IFF_BRIDGE_PORT;
/* --> br_handle_frame is called at this time */
netdev_rx_handler_unregister(dev);

In br_handle_frame the return of br_port_get_rcu(dev) is dereferenced
without check but br_port_get_rcu(dev) returns NULL if:
!(dev->priv_flags & IFF_BRIDGE_PORT)

Eric Dumazet pointed out the testing of IFF_BRIDGE_PORT is not necessary
here since we're in rcu_read_lock and we have synchronize_net() in
netdev_rx_handler_unregister. So remove the testing of IFF_BRIDGE_PORT
and by the previous patch, make sure br_port_get_rcu is called in
bridging code.
