Modified Files: src/sys/netinet: if_arp.c src/sys/netinet6: nd6_nbr.c Log Message: Fix a race condition on DAD destructions (again) The previous fix to DAD timers was wrong; it avoided a use-after-free but instead introduced a memory leak. The destruction method had delegated a destruction of a DAD timer to the timer itself and told that by setting NULL to dp->dad_ifa. However, the previous fix made DAD timers do nothing on the sign. Fixing the issue with using callout_stop isn't easy. One approach is to have a refcount on dp but it introduces extra complexity that we want to avoid. The new fix falls back to using callout_halt, which was abandoned because of softnet_lock. Fortunately now the network stack is protected by KERNEL_LOCK so we can remove softnet_lock from DAD timers (callout) and use callout_halt safely.
