[PATCH AUTOSEL 6.3 05/19] scsi: target: iscsi: Prevent login threads from racing between each other

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


From: Maurizio Lombardi <mlombard@xxxxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit 2a737d3b8c792400118d6cf94958f559de9c5e59 ]

The tpg->np_login_sem is a semaphore that is used to serialize the login
process when multiple login threads run concurrently against the same
target portal group.

The iscsi_target_locate_portal() function finds the tpg, calls
iscsit_access_np() against the np_login_sem semaphore and saves the tpg
pointer in conn->tpg;

If iscsi_target_locate_portal() fails, the caller will check for the
conn->tpg pointer and, if it's not NULL, then it will assume that
iscsi_target_locate_portal() called iscsit_access_np() on the semaphore.

Make sure that conn->tpg gets initialized only if iscsit_access_np() was
successful, otherwise iscsit_deaccess_np() may end up being called against
a semaphore we never took, allowing more than one thread to access the same
