Subject[PATCH] LSM: Delete hooks in reverse order for avoiding race
Date
From: Huaisheng Ye <yehs1@lenovo.com>

There is small possibility as race condition when selinux_disable
has been triggered. security_delete_hooks deletes all selinux hooks
from security_hook_heads, but there are some selinux functions which
are being called at the same time.

Here is a panic accident scene from 4.18 based kernel,

The root cause is that, selinux_inode_alloc_security has been deleted
firstly from security_hook_heads, so security_inode_alloc directly
return 0, that means the value of pointer inode->i_security equalling
to NULL.

But selinux_socket_post_create hasn't been deleted at that moment, so
which would involked by mistake. Inside the function, pointer isec
needs to point to inode->i_security, then a NULL pointer defect happens.

For current upstream kernel, because of commit
afb1cbe37440c7f38b9cf46fc331cc9dfd5cce21
the inode security has been moved out to LSM infrastructure from
individual security modules like selinux.

But this patch still can be applied for solving similar issue when
security_delete_hooks has been used. Also for stable branch v4.19,
the inode security still need to be created in individual modules.

The patch has been verified by Lenovo SR850P server through overnight
reboot cycles.
