[PATCH 3.13.y-ckt 085/156] ipvs: add missing ip_vs_pe_put in sync code

From: Kamal Mostafa
Date: Tue Apr 07 2015 - 19:14:07 EST

3.13.11-ckt19 -stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Julian Anastasov <ja@xxxxxx>

commit 528c943f3bb919aef75ab2fff4f00176f09a4019 upstream.

ip_vs_conn_fill_param_sync() gets in param.pe a module
reference for persistence engine from __ip_vs_pe_getbyname()
but forgets to put it. Problem occurs in backup for
sync protocol v1 (2.6.39).

Also, pe_data usually comes in sync messages for
connection templates and ip_vs_conn_new() copies
the pointer only in this case. Make sure pe_data
is not leaked if it comes unexpectedly for normal
connections. Leak can happen only if bogus messages
are sent to backup server.

Fixes: fe5e7a1efb66 ("IPVS: Backup, Adding Version 1 receive capability")
