[PATCH net-next 6/8] netfilter: nf_tables: mark newset as dead on transaction abort

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


From: Florian Westphal <fw@xxxxxxxxx>

If a transaction is aborted, we should mark the to-be-released NEWSET dead,
just like commit path does for DEL and DESTROYSET commands.

In both cases all remaining elements will be released via

The existing abort code does NOT post the actual release to the work queue.
Also the entire __nf_tables_abort() function is wrapped in gc_seq
begin/end pair.

Therefore, async gc worker will never try to release the pending set
elements, as gc sequence is always stale.

It might be possible to speed up transaction aborts via work queue too,
this would result in a race and a possible use-after-free.

So fix this before it becomes an issue.
