Subject[PATCH 4.4 25/88] vhost: make sure used idx is seen before log in vhost_add_used_n()
Date
4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Jason Wang <jasowang@redhat.com>

[ Upstream commit 841df922417eb82c835e93d4b93eb6a68c99d599 ]

We miss a write barrier that guarantees used idx is updated and seen
before log. This will let userspace sync and copy used ring before
used idx is update. Fix this by adding a barrier before log_write().

Fixes: 8dd014adfea6f ("vhost-net: mergeable buffers support")
