Subject: [PATCH] RDMA/uverbs: Remove needs_kfree_rcu from uverbs_obj_type_class
Date: Mon, 13 Jan 2020 14:33:10 +0000
Message-ID: <20200113143306.GA28717@ziepe.ca> (raw)

After device disassociation the uapi_objects are destroyed and freed,
however it is still possible that core code can be holding a kref on the
uobject. When it finally goes to uverbs_uobject_free() via the kref_put()
it can trigger a use-after-free on the uapi_object.

Since needs_kfree_rcu is a micro optimization that only benefits file
uobjects, just get rid of it. There is no harm in using kfree_rcu even if
it isn't required, and the number of involved objects is small.

This should go before the 'refactoring fd usage' series as more
testing has shown the reworked code can trivially trigger this
existing bug.
