SubjectRe: [PATCH] net/tls: Fix sk_psock refcnt leak when in tls_data_ready()
From: Xiyu Yang <>
Date: Sat, 25 Apr 2020 21:10:23 +0800

> tls_data_ready() invokes sk_psock_get(), which returns a reference of
> the specified sk_psock object to "psock" with increased refcnt.
> When tls_data_ready() returns, local variable "psock" becomes invalid,
> so the refcount should be decreased to keep refcount balanced.
> The reference counting issue happens in one exception handling path of
> tls_data_ready(). When "psock->ingress_msg" is empty but "psock" is not
> NULL, the function forgets to decrease the refcnt increased by
> sk_psock_get(), causing a refcnt leak.
> Fix this issue by calling sk_psock_put() on all paths when "psock" is
> not NULL.
