Subject[PATCH 4.12 01/41] audit: Fix use after free in audit_remove_watch_rule()
Date
4.12-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Jan Kara <jack@suse.cz>

commit d76036ab47eafa6ce52b69482e91ca3ba337d6d6 upstream.

audit_remove_watch_rule() drops watch's reference to parent but then
continues to work with it. That is not safe as parent can get freed once
we drop our reference. The following is a trivial reproducer:

mount -o loop image /mnt
touch /mnt/file
auditctl -w /mnt/file -p wax
umount /mnt
auditctl -D
<crash in fsnotify_destroy_mark()>

Grab our own reference in audit_remove_watch_rule() earlier to make sure
mark does not get freed under us.
