Subject[PATCH 4.4 010/168] CIFS: fix POSIX lock leak and invalid ptr deref
[ Upstream commit bc31d0cdcfbadb6258b45db97e93b1c83822ba33 ]

We have a customer reporting crashes in lock_get_status() with many
"Leaked POSIX lock" messages preceeding the crash.

When Linux closes a FD (close(), close-on-exec, dup2(), ...) it calls
filp_close() which also removes all posix locks.

The lock struct is initialized like so in filp_close() and passed
down to cifs

lock.fl_type = F_UNLCK;
lock.fl_flags = FL_POSIX | FL_CLOSE;
lock.fl_start = 0;
lock.fl_end = OFFSET_MAX;

Note the FL_CLOSE flag, which hints the VFS code that this unlocking
is done for closing the fd.

locks_remove_posix(filp, id);
vfs_lock_file(filp, F_SETLK, &lock, NULL);
return filp->f_op->lock(filp, cmd, fl) => cifs_lock()
rc = cifs_setlk(file, flock, type, wait_flag, posix_lck, lock, unlock, xid);
rc = server->ops->mand_unlock_range(cfile, flock, xid);
if (flock->fl_flags & FL_POSIX && !rc)
rc = locks_lock_file_wait(file, flock)

Notice how we don't call locks_lock_file_wait() which does the
generic VFS lock/unlock/wait work on the inode if rc != 0.

If we are closing the handle, the SMB server is supposed to remove any
locks associated with it. Similarly, cifs.ko frees and wakes up any
lock and lock waiter when closing the file:

* Delete any outstanding lock records. We'll lose them when the file
* is closed anyway.
list_for_each_entry_safe(li, tmp, &cifs_file->llist->locks, llist) {

So we can safely ignore unlocking failures in cifs_lock() if they
happen with the FL_CLOSE flag hint set as both the server and the
client take care of it during the actual closing.

This is not a proper fix for the unlocking failure but it's safe and
it seems to prevent the lock leakages and crashes the customer
