[PATCH 4.17 095/324] batman-adv: Fix bat_ogm_iv best gw refcnt after netlink dump

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Thu Aug 23 2018 - 04:50:32 EST

4.17-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Sven Eckelmann <sven@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit b5685d2687d6612adf5eac519eb7008f74dfd1ec ]

A reference for the best gateway is taken when the list of gateways in the
mesh is sent via netlink. This is necessary to check whether the currently
dumped entry is the currently selected gateway or not. This information is
then transferred as flag BATADV_ATTR_FLAG_BEST.

After the comparison of the current entry is done,
batadv_iv_gw_dump_entry() has to decrease the reference counter again.
Otherwise the reference will be held and thus prevents a proper shutdown of
the batman-adv interfaces (and some of the interfaces enslaved in it).
