[PATCH 3.2 001/185] selinux: correct locking in selinux_netlbl_socket_connect)

3.2.54-rc1 review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Paul Moore <pmoore@xxxxxxxxxx>

commit 42d64e1add3a1ce8a787116036163b8724362145 upstream.

The SELinux/NetLabel glue code has a locking bug that affects systems
with NetLabel enabled, see the kernel error message below. This patch
corrects this problem by converting the bottom half socket lock to a
more conventional, and correct for this call-path, lock_sock() call.

[ INFO: suspicious RCU usage. ]
3.11.0-rc3+ #19 Not tainted
net/ipv4/cipso_ipv4.c:1928 suspicious rcu_dereference_protected() usage!

other info that might help us debug this:

rcu_scheduler_active = 1, debug_locks = 0
2 locks held by ping/731:
#0: (slock-AF_INET/1){+.-...}, at: [...] selinux_netlbl_socket_connect
#1: (rcu_read_lock){.+.+..}, at: [<...>] netlbl_conn_setattr
