Commit 3ebd2fd0d011 ("IB/sa: Put netlink request into the request list before sending")'
-
1. Adds the query to the request list before ib_nl_snd_msg.
2. Moves ib_nl_send_msg out of spinlock, hence safe to use gfp_mask as is.

However, if there is a delay in sending out the request (For
eg: Delay due to low memory situation) the timer to handle request timeout
might kick in before the request is sent out to ibacm via netlink.
ib_nl_request_timeout may release the query causing a use after free situation
while accessing the query in ib_nl_send_msg.

Call Trace for the above race:

To resolve the above issue -
1. Add the req to the request list only after the request has been sent out.
2. To handle the race where response comes in before adding request to
the request list, send(rdma_nl_multicast) and add to list while holding the
spinlock - request_lock.
3. Use non blocking memory allocation flags for rdma_nl_multicast since it is
called while holding a spinlock.

Fixes: 3ebd2fd0d011 ("IB/sa: Put netlink request into the request list
before sending")

v1:
- Use flag IB_SA_NL_QUERY_SENT to prevent the use-after-free.

v2:
- Use atomic bit ops for setting and testing IB_SA_NL_QUERY_SENT.
- Rewording and adding comments.

v3:
- Change approach and remove usage of IB_SA_NL_QUERY_SENT.
- Add req to request list only after the request has been sent out.
- Send and add to list while holding the spinlock (request_lock).
- Overide gfp_mask and use GFP_NOWAIT for rdma_nl_multicast since we
  need non blocking memory allocation while holding spinlock.

v4:
- Formatting changes.
- Use GFP_NOWAIT conditionally - Only when GFP_ATOMIC is not provided by caller.
