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


From: Nicholas Bellinger <n...@linux-iscsi.org>

commit 49cb77e297dc611a1b795cfeb79452b3002bd331 upstream.

This patch closes a race between se_lun deletion during configfs
unlink in target_fabric_port_unlink() -> core_dev_del_lun()
-> core_tpg_remove_lun(), when transport_clear_lun_ref() blocks
waiting for percpu_ref RCU grace period to finish, but a new
NodeACL mappedlun is added before the RCU grace period has

This can happen in target_fabric_mappedlun_link() because it
only checks for se_lun->lun_se_dev, which is not cleared until
after transport_clear_lun_ref() percpu_ref RCU grace period

This bug originally manifested as NULL pointer dereference
OOPsen in target_stat_scsi_att_intr_port_show_attr_dev() on
v4.1.y code, because it dereferences lun->lun_se_dev without
a explicit NULL pointer check.

In post v4.1 code with target-core RCU conversion, the code
in target_stat_scsi_att_intr_port_show_attr_dev() no longer
uses se_lun->lun_se_dev, but the same race still exists.

To address the bug, go ahead and set se_lun>lun_shutdown as
early as possible in core_tpg_remove_lun(), and ensure new
NodeACL mappedlun creation in target_fabric_mappedlun_link()
fails during se_lun shutdown.
