CVE-2021-47163

Description

In the Linux kernel, the following vulnerability has been resolved: tipc: wait and exit until all work queues are done On some host, a crash could be triggered simply by repeating these commands several times: # modprobe tipc # tipc bearer enable media udp name UDP1 localip 127.0.0.1 # rmmod tipc [] BUG: unable to handle kernel paging request at ffffffffc096bb00 [] Workqueue: events 0xffffffffc096bb00 [] Call Trace: [] ? process_one_work+0x1a7/0x360 [] ? worker_thread+0x30/0x390 [] ? create_worker+0x1a0/0x1a0 [] ? kthread+0x116/0x130 [] ? kthread_flush_work_fn+0x10/0x10 [] ? ret_from_fork+0x35/0x40 When removing the TIPC module, the UDP tunnel sock will be delayed to release in a work queue as sock_release() can\'t be done in rtnl_lock(). If the work queue is schedule to run after the TIPC module is removed, kernel will crash as the work queue function cleanup_beareri() code no longer exists when trying to invoke it. To fix it, this patch introduce a member wq_count in tipc_net to track the numbers of work queues in schedule, and wait and exit until all work queues are done in tipc_exit_net().
