[ Upstream commit c800aaf8d869f2b9b47b10c5c312fe19f0a94042 ]

There are multiple reports showing we have a use-after-free in
the timer prb_retire_rx_blk_timer_expired(), where we use struct
tpacket_kbdq_core::pkbdq, a pg_vec, after it gets freed by

The interesting part is it is not freed via packet_release() but
via packet_setsockopt(), which means we are not closing the socket.
Looking into the big and fat function packet_set_ring(), this could
happen if we satisfy the following conditions:

1. closing == 0, not on packet_release() path
2. req->tp_block_nr == 0, we don't allocate a new pg_vec
3. rx_ring->pg_vec is already set as V3, which means we already called
   packet_set_ring() wtih req->tp_block_nr > 0 previously
4. req->tp_frame_nr == 0, pass sanity check
5. po->mapped == 0, never called mmap()

In this scenario we are clearing the old rx_ring->pg_vec, so we need
to free this pg_vec, but we don't stop the timer on this path because
of closing==0.

The timer has to be stopped as long as we need to free pg_vec, therefore
the check on closing!=0 is wrong, we should check pg_vec!=NULL instead.

Thanks to liujian for testing different fixes.
