There are two problems in crypto_spawn_alg.  First of all it may
return spawn->alg even if spawn->dead is set.  This results in a
double-free as detected by syzbot.

Secondly the setting of the DYING flag is racy because we hold
the read-lock instead of the write-lock.  We should instead call
crypto_shoot_alg in a safe manner by gaining a refcount, dropping
the lock, and then releasing the refcount.

This patch fixes both problems.

Wouldn't it be a bit simpler to set 'target = NULL', remove 'shoot',
and use 'if (target)' instead of 'if (shoot)'?

Yes it is simpler but it's actually semantically different because
the compiler doesn't know that spawn->alg cannot be NULL in this
case.

I'm not sure what you mean here.  crypto_alg_get() is:

static inline struct crypto_alg *crypto_alg_get(struct crypto_alg *alg)
{
        refcount_inc(&alg->cra_refcnt);
        return alg;
}

So given:

	target = crypto_alg_get(alg);

Both alg and target have to be non-NULL.

Yes I know that we know that it can't be NULL, but gcc 8.3 doesn't.

Cheers,
