Subject: CVE-2024-26614: tcp: make sure init the accept_queue's spinlocks once


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

tcp: make sure init the accept_queue's spinlocks once

When I run syz's reproduction C program locally, it causes the following
pvqspinlock: lock 0xffff9d181cd5c660 has corrupted value 0x0!

The issue triggering process is analyzed as follows:
Thread A                                       Thread B
tcp_v4_rcv	//receive ack TCP packet       inet_shutdown
  tcp_check_req                                  tcp_disconnect //disconnect sock
  ...                                              tcp_set_state(sk, TCP_CLOSE)
    inet_csk_complete_hashdance                ...
      inet_csk_reqsk_queue_add                 inet_listen  //start listen
        spin_lock(&queue->rskq_lock)             inet_csk_listen_start
        ...                                        reqsk_queue_alloc
        ...                                          spin_lock_init
        spin_unlock(&queue->rskq_lock)	//warning

When the socket receives the ACK packet during the three-way handshake,
it will hold spinlock. And then the user actively shutdowns the socket
and listens to the socket immediately, the spinlock will be initialized.
When the socket is going to release the spinlock, a warning is generated.
Also the same issue to fastopenq.lock.

Move init spinlock to inet_create and inet_accept to make sure init the
accept_queue's spinlocks once.

The Linux kernel CVE team has assigned CVE-2024-26614 to this issue.

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:
