Subject[PATCH 3.2 110/115] xfrm: Fix crash observed during device unregistration and decryption
3.2.80-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: "subashab@codeaurora.org" <subashab@codeaurora.org>

[ Upstream commit 071d36bf21bcc837be00cea55bcef8d129e7f609 ]

A crash is observed when a decrypted packet is processed in receive
path. get_rps_cpus() tries to dereference the skb->dev fields but it
appears that the device is freed from the poison pattern.

-013|get_rps_cpu(
| dev = 0xFFFFFFC08B688000,
| skb = 0xFFFFFFC0C76AAC00 -> (
| dev = 0xFFFFFFC08B688000 -> (
| name =
"......................................................
| name_hlist = (next = 0xAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA, pprev =
0xAAAAAAAAAAA

Following are the sequence of events observed -

- Encrypted packet in receive path from netdevice is queued
- Encrypted packet queued for decryption (asynchronous)
- Netdevice brought down and freed
- Packet is decrypted and returned through callback in esp_input_done
- Packet is queued again for process in network stack using netif_rx

Since the device appears to have been freed, the dereference of
skb->dev in get_rps_cpus() leads to an unhandled page fault
exception.

Fix this by holding on to device reference when queueing packets
asynchronously and releasing the reference on call back return.

v2: Make the change generic to xfrm as mentioned by Steffen and
update the title to xfrm
