Subject: [PATCH v2] configfs: fix a race in configfs_lookup()
Date: Mon, 23 Aug 2021 15:43:18 -0400	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210823194318.17528-1-sishuai@purdue.edu> (raw)

When configfs_lookup() is executing list_for_each_entry(),
it is possible that configfs_dir_lseek() is calling list_del().
Some unfortunate interleavings of them can cause a kernel NULL
pointer dereference error

Thread 1                  Thread 2
//configfs_dir_lseek()    //configfs_lookup()
list_del(&cursor->s_sibling);
			 list_for_each_entry(sd, ...)

Fix this bug by grabbing configfs_dirent_lock in configfs_lookup().
