Subject[PATCH 81/93] crypto: api - Fix race condition in larval lookup
Date
3.8.13.10 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Herbert Xu <herbert@gondor.apana.org.au>

commit 77dbd7a95e4a4f15264c333a9e9ab97ee27dc2aa upstream.

crypto_larval_lookup should only return a larval if it created one.
Any larval created by another entity must be processed through
crypto_larval_wait before being returned.

Otherwise this will lead to a larval being killed twice, which
will most likely lead to a crash.
