netfilter: nf_nat: fix RCU races
Fix three ct_extend/NAT extension related races: - When cleaning up the extension area and removing it from the bysource hash, the nat->ct pointer must not be set to NULL since it may still be used in a RCU read side - When replacing a NAT extension area in the bysource hash, the nat->ct pointer must be assigned before performing the replacement - When reallocating extension storage in ct_extend, the old memory must not be freed immediately since it may still be used by a RCU read side Possibly fixes https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=449315 and/or http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10875 Signed-off-by: Patrick McHardy <kaber@trash.net> Signed-off-by: David S.
