Subject: CVE-2023-52487: net/mlx5e: Fix peer flow lists handling

Description
===========

In the Linux kernel, the following vulnerability has been resolved:

net/mlx5e: Fix peer flow lists handling

The cited change refactored mlx5e_tc_del_fdb_peer_flow() to only clear DUP
flag when list of peer flows has become empty. However, if any concurrent
user holds a reference to a peer flow (for example, the neighbor update
workqueue task is updating peer flow's parent encap entry concurrently),
then the flow will not be removed from the peer list and, consecutively,
DUP flag will remain set. Since mlx5e_tc_del_fdb_peers_flow() calls
mlx5e_tc_del_fdb_peer_flow() for every possible peer index the algorithm
will try to remove the flow from eswitch instances that it has never peered
with causing either NULL pointer dereference when trying to remove the flow
peer list head of peer_index that was never initialized or a warning if the
list debug config is enabled[0].

Fix the issue by always removing the peer flow from the list even when not
releasing the last reference to it.

Affected files
==============

The file(s) affected by this issue are:
	drivers/net/ethernet/mellanox/mlx5/core/en_tc.c


Mitigation
==========

The Linux kernel CVE team recommends that you update to the latest
stable kernel version for this, and many other bugfixes.  Individual
changes are never tested alone, but rather are part of a larger kernel
release.  Cherry-picking individual commits is not recommended or
supported by the Linux kernel community at all.  If however, updating to
the latest release is impossible, the individual changes to resolve this
issue can be found at these commits:
