[PATCH RFC] virtio_net: fix refill related races

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

Fix theoretical races related to refill work:
1. After napi is disabled by ndo_stop, refill work
   can run and re-enable it.
2. Refill can reschedule itself, if this happens
   it can run after cancel_delayed_work_sync,
   and will access device after it is destroyed.

As a solution, add flags to track napi state and
to disable refill, and toggle them on start, stop
and remove; check these flags on refill.

refill work structure and new fields aren't used
on data path, so put them together near the end of
struct virtnet_info.

RFC only since it's untested at this point.
A bugfix so 3.2 material?
Comments?
