[PATCH V2] libceph: fix use after free

From: Pan Bian
Date: Tue Nov 27 2018 - 04:21:40 EST

The function ceph_monc_handle_map calls kfree(old) to free the old
monitor map, old points to monc->monmap. However, after that, it reads
monc->monmap->epoch and passes it to __ceph_monc_got_map. This will
result in a use-after-free bug. The patch moves the free operation after
the call to __ceph_monc_got_map.

Fixes: 82dcabad750 ("libceph: revamp subs code, switch to SUBSCRIBE2 protocol")
