Subject[PATCH 4.14 50/53] netfilter: nf_log: dont hold nf_log_mutex during user access
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Jann Horn <jannh@google.com>

commit ce00bf07cc95a57cd20b208e02b3c2604e532ae8 upstream.

The old code would indefinitely block other users of nf_log_mutex if
a userspace access in proc_dostring() blocked e.g. due to a userfaultfd
region. Fix it by moving proc_dostring() out of the locked region.

This is a followup to commit 266d07cb1c9a ("netfilter: nf_log: fix
sleeping function called from invalid context"), which changed this code
from using rcu_read_lock() to taking nf_log_mutex.

Fixes: 266d07cb1c9a ("netfilter: nf_log: fix sleeping function calle[...]")
