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


From: Florian Westphal <f...@strlen.de>

commit b1bdcb59b64f806ef08d25a85c39ffb3ad841ce6 upstream.

xfrm_policy_cache_flush can sleep, so it cannot be called while holding
a spinlock.  We could release the lock first, but I don't see why we need
to invoke this function here in first place, the packet path won't reuse
an xdst entry unless its still valid.

While at it, add an annotation to xfrm_policy_cache_flush, it would
have probably caught this bug sooner.

Fixes: ec30d78c14a813 ("xfrm: add xdst pcpu cache")
