Subject[PATCH 3.4 11/13] KVM: VMX: fix use after free of vmx->loaded_vmcs
Date
3.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Marcelo Tosatti <mtosatti@redhat.com>

commit 26a865f4aa8e66a6d94958de7656f7f1b03c6c56 upstream.

After free_loaded_vmcs executes, the "loaded_vmcs" structure
is kfreed, and now vmx->loaded_vmcs points to a kfreed area.
Subsequent free_loaded_vmcs then attempts to manipulate
vmx->loaded_vmcs.

Switch the order to avoid the problem.
