Subject[PATCH 1/3] io_uring: Fix resource leaking when kill the process
From: Yinyin Zhu <>

The commit <1c4404efcf2c0> ("<io_uring: make sure async workqueue is
canceled on exit>") doesn't solve the resource leak problem totally!
When kworker is doing a io task for the io_uring, The process which
submitted the io task has received a SIGKILL signal from the user.
Then the io_cancel_async_work function could have sent a SIGINT
signal to the kworker, but the judging condition is wrong. So it
doesn't send a SIGINT signal to the kworker, then caused the resource
leaking problem. Why the juding condition is wrong? Think that
The process is a multi-threaded process, we call the thread of the
process which has submitted the io task Thread1. So the req->task
is the current macro of the Thread1. when all the threads of
the process have done exit procedure, the last thread will call the
io_cancel_async_work, but the last thread may not the Thread1,
so the req->task is not equal to the task. so it doesn't
send the SIGINT signal. To fix this bug, we alter the task attribute
of the req with struct files_struct. And the judging condition is
"req->files == files"

Fixes: 1c4404efcf2c0 ("io_uring: make sure async workqueue is canceled on exit")
