parentipv6: sctp: add rcu protection around np->opt (diff)
ipv6: kill sk_dst_lock
While testing the np->opt RCU conversion, I found that UDP/IPv6 was using a mixture of xchg() and sk_dst_lock to protect concurrent changes to sk->sk_dst_cache, leading to possible corruptions and crashes. ip6_sk_dst_lookup_flow() uses sk_dst_check() anyway, so the simplest way to fix the mess is to remove sk_dst_lock completely, as we did for IPv4. __ip6_dst_store() and ip6_dst_store() share same implementation. sk_setup_caps() being called with socket lock being held or not, we have to use sk_dst_set() instead of __sk_dst_set() Note that I had to move the "np->dst_cookie = rt6_get_cookie(rt);" in ip6_dst_store() before the sk_setup_caps(sk, dst) call. This is because ip6_dst_store() can be called from process context, without any lock held. As soon as the dst is installed in sk->sk_dst_cache, dst can be freed from another cpu doing a concurrent ip6_dst_store() Doing the dst dereference before doing the install is needed to make sure no use after free would trigger.
