Subject[PATCH 4.2 31/61] RDS: fix race condition when sending a message on unbound socket
Date
4.2-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Quentin Casasnovas <quentin.casasnovas@oracle.com>

[ Upstream commit 8c7188b23474cca017b3ef354c4a58456f68303a ]

Sasha's found a NULL pointer dereference in the RDS connection code when
sending a message to an apparently unbound socket. The problem is caused
by the code checking if the socket is bound in rds_sendmsg(), which checks
the rs_bound_addr field without taking a lock on the socket. This opens a
race where rs_bound_addr is temporarily set but where the transport is not
in rds_bind(), leading to a NULL pointer dereference when trying to
dereference 'trans' in __rds_conn_create().

Vegard wrote a reproducer for this issue, so kindly ask him to share if
you're interested.

I cannot reproduce the NULL pointer dereference using Vegard's reproducer
with this patch, whereas I could without.

Complete earlier incomplete fix to CVE-2015-6937:

74e98eb08588 ("RDS: verify the underlying transport exists before creating a connection")
