Subject[PATCH] can, slip: Protect tty->disc_data access with RCU
Date
write_wakeup can happen in parallel with close where tty->disc_data is set
to NULL. So we a) need to check if tty->disc_data is NULL and b) ensure it
is an atomic operation. Otherwise accessing tty->disc_data could result in
a NULL pointer deref or access to some random location.

This problem was found by Syzkaller on slcan, but the same issue appears to
exist in slip where slcan was copied from.

A fix which didn't use RCU was posted by Hillf Danton.

Fixes: 661f7fda21b1 ("slip: Fix deadlock in write_wakeup")
Fixes: a8e83b17536a ("slcan: Port write_wakeup deadlock fix from slip")

Note, that mabye RCU should also applied to receive_buf as that also happens
in interrupt context. So if the pointer assignment is split by the compiler
then sl may point somewhere unexpected?
