net: netem: fix use after free and double free with packet corruption
Brendan reports that the use of netem's packet corruption capability leads to strange crashes. This seems to be caused by commit d66280b12bd7 ("net: netem: use a list in addition to rbtree") which uses skb->next pointer to construct a fast-path queue of in-order skbs. Packet corruption code has to invoke skb_gso_segment() in case of skbs in need of GSO. skb_gso_segment() returns a list of skbs. If next pointers of the skbs on that list do not get cleared fast path list may point to freed skbs or skbs which are also on the RB tree. Let's say skb gets segmented into 3 frames: A -> B -> C A gets hooked to the t_head t_tail list by tfifo_enqueue(), but it's next pointer didn't get cleared so we have: h t |/ A -> B -> C Now if B and C get also get enqueued successfully all is fine, because tfifo_enqueue() will overwrite the list in order. IOW: Enqueue B: h t | | A -> B C Enqueue C: h t | | A -> B -> C But if B and C get reordered we may end up with: h t RB tree |/ | A -> B -> C B \ C Or if they get dropped just: h t |/ A -> B -> C where A and B are already freed. To reproduce either limit has to be set low to cause freeing of segs or reorders have to happen (due to delay jitter). Note that we only have to mark the first segment as not on the list, "finish_segs" handling of other frags already does that. Another caveat is that qdisc_drop_all() still has to free all segments correctly in case of drop of first segment, therefore we re-link segs before calling it. v2: - re-link before drop, v1 was leaking non-first segs if limit was hit at the first seg - better commit message which lead to discovering the above :) Reported-by: Brendan Galloway <brendan.galloway@netronome.com> Fixes: d66280b12bd7 ("net: netem: use a list in addition to rbtree") Signed-off-by: Jakub Kicinski <jakub.kicinski@netronome.com> Reviewed-by: Dirk van der Merwe <dirk.vandermerwe@netronome.com> Acked-by: Cong Wang <xiyou.wangcong@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: David S.
