Subject: [PATCH v2] ath10k: hold RCU lock when calling ieee80211_find_sta_by_ifaddr()
Date: Wed, 10 Feb 2021 14:21:07 -0700
Message-ID: <20210210212107.40373-1-skhan@linuxfoundation.org> (raw)

ieee80211_find_sta_by_ifaddr() must be called under the RCU lock and
the resulting pointer is only valid under RCU lock as well.

Fix ath10k_wmi_tlv_op_pull_peer_stats_info() to hold RCU lock before it
calls ieee80211_find_sta_by_ifaddr() and release it when the resulting
pointer is no longer needed.

This problem was found while reviewing code to debug RCU warn from
ath10k_wmi_tlv_parse_peer_stats_info().

Changes since v1:
- v1 also included fix to ath10k_wmi_tlv_parse_peer_stats_info()
  RCU wrn which was already fixed. v2 drops that and fixes just
  ath10k_wmi_event_tdls_peer()
