Subject: [PATCH net] net: Fix memory leak in ieee802154_raw_deliver
Date: Thu, 5 Aug 2021 16:54:14 +0900	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210805075414.GA15796@DESKTOP> (raw)

If IEEE-802.15.4-RAW is closed before receive skb, skb is leaked.
Fix this, by freeing sk_receive_queue in sk->sk_destruct().

syzbot report:

Dear David Howells, Jakub Kicinski

syzbot reported memory leak in ieee802154_raw_deliver.

I send a patch that passed syzbot reproducer test.
