Subject: [PATCH v3 3/3] auth_gss: fix deadlock that blocks rpcsec_gss_exit_net when use-gss-proxy==1
Date: Wed, 12 Jun 2019 20:09:30 +0800
Message-ID: <1560341370-24197-4-git-send-email-wenbinzeng@tencent.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <1560341370-24197-1-git-send-email-wenbinzeng@tencent.com>

When use-gss-proxy is set to 1, write_gssp() creates a rpc client in
gssp_rpc_create(), this increases netns refcount by 2, these refcounts are
supposed to be released in rpcsec_gss_exit_net(), but it will never happen
because rpcsec_gss_exit_net() is triggered only when netns refcount gets
to 0, specifically:
    refcount=0 -> cleanup_net() -> ops_exit_list -> rpcsec_gss_exit_net
It is a deadlock situation here, refcount will never get to 0 unless
rpcsec_gss_exit_net() is called.

This fix introduced a new callback i.e. evict in struct proc_ns_operations,
which is called in nsfs_evict. Moving rpcsec_gss_exit_net to evict path
gives it a chance to get called and avoids the above deadlock situation.
