Subject[PATCH 4.9 171/191] net: alx: fix race condition in alx_remove
Date
From: Zekun Shen <bruceshenzk@gmail.com>

[ Upstream commit e89df5c4322c1bf495f62d74745895b5fd2a4393 ]

There is a race condition exist during termination. The path is
alx_stop and then alx_remove. An alx_schedule_link_check could be called
before alx_stop by interrupt handler and invoke alx_link_check later.
Alx_stop frees the napis, and alx_remove cancels any pending works.
If any of the work is scheduled before termination and invoked before
alx_remove, a null-ptr-deref occurs because both expect alx->napis[i].

This patch fix the race condition by moving cancel_work_sync functions
before alx_free_napis inside alx_stop. Because interrupt handler can call
alx_schedule_link_check again, alx_free_irq is moved before
cancel_work_sync calls too.
