netfilter: nf_tables: fix suspicious RCU usage in nft_chain_stats_replace()
basechain->stats is rcu protected data which is updated from nft_chain_stats_replace(). This function is executed from the commit phase which holds the pernet nf_tables commit mutex - not the global nfnetlink subsystem mutex. Test commands to reproduce the problem are: %iptables-nft -I INPUT %iptables-nft -Z %iptables-nft -Z This patch uses RCU calls to handle basechain->stats updates to fix a splat that looks like: [89279.358755] ============================= [89279.363656] WARNING: suspicious RCU usage [89279.368458] 4.20.0-rc2+ #44 Tainted: G W L [89279.374661] ----------------------------- [89279.379542] net/netfilter/nf_tables_api.c:1404 suspicious rcu_dereference_protected() usage!
