[PATCH v2 2/3] pppoatm: fix race condition with destroying of vcc

From: Krzysztof Mazur
Date: Mon Oct 22 2012 - 13:23:08 EST

The pppoatm_send() calls vcc->send() and now also checks for
some vcc flags that indicate destroyed vcc without proper locking.

The vcc_sendmsg() uses lock_sock(sk). This lock is used by
vcc_release(), so vcc_destroy_socket() will not be called between
check and during ->send(). The vcc_release_async() sets ATM_VF_CLOSE,
but it should be safe to call ->send() after it, because
vcc->dev->ops->close() is not called.

The pppoatm_send() is called with BH disabled, so bh_lock_sock()
should be used instead of lock_sock().
