Subject[PATCH 4.14 133/166] rapidio: avoid data race between file operation callbacks and mport_cdev_add().
Date
From: Madhuparna Bhowmik <madhuparnabhowmik10@gmail.com>

[ Upstream commit e1c3cdb26ab881b77486dc50370356a349077c74 ]

Fields of md(mport_dev) are set after cdev_device_add(). However, the
file operation callbacks can be called after cdev_device_add() and
therefore accesses to fields of md in the callbacks can race with the rest
of the mport_cdev_add() function.

One such example is INIT_LIST_HEAD(&md->portwrites) in mport_cdev_add(),
the list is initialised after cdev_device_add(). This can race with
list_add_tail(&pw_filter->md_node,&md->portwrites) in
rio_mport_add_pw_filter() which is called by unlocked_ioctl.

To avoid such data races use cdev_device_add() after initializing md.
