[PATCH 3.19.y-ckt 113/130] inet: frag: don't re-use chainlist for evictor

From: Kamal Mostafa

3.19.8-ckt6 -stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Florian Westphal <fw@xxxxxxxxx>

commit d1fe19444d82e399e38c1594c71b850eca8e9de0 upstream.

commit 65ba1f1ec0eff ("inet: frags: fix a race between inet_evict_bucket
and inet_frag_kill") describes the bug, but the fix doesn't work reliably.

Problem is that ->flags member can be set on other cpu without chainlock
being held by that task, i.e. the RMW-Cycle can clear INET_FRAG_EVICTED
bit after we put the element on the evictor private list.

We can crash when walking the 'private' evictor list since an element can
be deleted from list underneath the evictor.

Join work with Nikolay Alexandrov.
