Subject[PATCH 3.12 005/181] epoll: fix use-after-free in eventpoll_release_file
Date
From: Konstantin Khlebnikov <koct9i@gmail.com>

3.12-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

===============

commit ebe06187bf2aec10d537ce4595e416035367d703 upstream.

This fixes use-after-free of epi->fllink.next inside list loop macro.
This loop actually releases elements in the body. The list is
rcu-protected but here we cannot hold rcu_read_lock because we need to
lock mutex inside.

The obvious solution is to use list_for_each_entry_safe(). RCU-ness
isn't essential because nobody can change this list under us, it's final
fput for this file.

The bug was introduced by ae10b2b4eb01 ("epoll: optimize EPOLL_CTL_DEL
using rcu")
