ipv6: make icmp6_send() robust against null skb->dev
syzbot was able to crash one host with the following stack trace : kasan: GPF could be caused by NULL-ptr deref or user memory access general protection fault: 0000 [#1] PREEMPT SMP KASAN CPU: 0 PID: 8625 Comm: syz-executor4 Not tainted 4.20.0+ #8 RIP: 0010:dev_net include/linux/netdevice.h:2169 [inline] RIP: 0010:icmp6_send+0x116/0x2d30 net/ipv6/icmp.c:426 icmpv6_send smack_socket_sock_rcv_skb security_sock_rcv_skb sk_filter_trim_cap __sk_receive_skb dccp_v6_do_rcv release_sock This is because a RX packet found socket owned by user and was stored into socket backlog. Before leaving RCU protected section, skb->dev was cleared in __sk_receive_skb(). When socket backlog was finally handled at release_sock() time, skb was fed to smack_socket_sock_rcv_skb() then icmp6_send() We could fix the bug in smack_socket_sock_rcv_skb(), or simply make icmp6_send() more robust against such possibility. In the future we might provide to icmp6_send() the net pointer instead of infering it.
