Subject: [PATCH 3/9] netfilter: nf_tables: store transaction list locally while requesting module
Date: Thu, 16 Jan 2020 20:50:38 +0100
Message-ID: <20200116195044.326614-4-pablo@netfilter.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200116195044.326614-1-pablo@netfilter.org>

This patch fixes a WARN_ON in nft_set_destroy() due to missing
set reference count drop from the preparation phase. This is triggered
by the module autoload path. Do not exercise the abort path from
nft_request_module() while preparation phase cleaning up is still
pending.
