Subject[PATCH 3.4 083/176] virtio_pci: defer kfree until release callback
Date
From: Sasha Levin <sasha.levin@oracle.com>

3.4.107-rc1 review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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


commit 63bd62a08ca45a0c804c3c89777edc7f76a2d6da upstream.

A struct device which has just been unregistered can live on past the
point at which a driver decides to drop it's initial reference to the
kobject gained on allocation.

This implies that when releasing a virtio device, we can't free a struct
virtio_device until the underlying struct device has been released,
which might not happen immediately on device_unregister().

Unfortunately, this is exactly what virtio pci does:
it has an empty release callback, and frees memory immediately
after unregistering the device.

This causes an easy to reproduce crash if CONFIG_DEBUG_KOBJECT_RELEASE
it enabled.

To fix, free the memory only once we know the device is gone in the release
callback.
