Subject[PATCH V5 6/9] vhost: don't do synchronize_rcu() in vhost_uninit_vq_maps()
Date
There's no need for RCU synchronization in vhost_uninit_vq_maps()
since we've already serialized with readers (memory accessors). This
also avoid the possible userspace DOS through ioctl() because of the
possible high latency caused by synchronize_rcu().

Fixes: 7f466032dc9e ("vhost: access vq metadata through kernel virtual address")
