Subject: [PATCH net] sctp: fix sleep in atomic context bug in timer handlers
Date: Sat, 23 Jul 2022 09:58:09 +0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

There are sleep in atomic context bugs in timer handlers of sctp
such as sctp_generate_t3_rtx_event(), sctp_generate_probe_event(),
sctp_generate_t1_init_event(), sctp_generate_timeout_event(),
sctp_generate_t3_rtx_event() and so on.

The root cause is sctp_sched_prio_init_sid() with GFP_KERNEL parameter
that may sleep could be called by different timer handlers which is in
interrupt context.

One of the call paths that could trigger bug is shown below:

      (interrupt context)
                sctp_sched_prio_init_sid //may sleep

This patch changes gfp_t parameter of init_sid in sctp_sched_set_sched()
from GFP_KERNEL to GFP_ATOMIC in order to prevent sleep in atomic
context bugs.
