Subject: CVE-2021-47060: KVM: Stop looking for coalesced MMIO zones if the bus is destroyed

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

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

KVM: Stop looking for coalesced MMIO zones if the bus is destroyed

Abort the walk of coalesced MMIO zones if kvm_io_bus_unregister_dev()
fails to allocate memory for the new instance of the bus.  If it can't
instantiate a new bus, unregister_dev() destroys all devices _except_ the
target device.   But, it doesn't tell the caller that it obliterated the
bus and invoked the destructor for all devices that were on the bus.  In
the coalesced MMIO case, this can result in a deleted list entry
dereference due to attempting to continue iterating on coalesced_zones
after future entries (in the walk) have been deleted.

Opportunistically add curly braces to the for-loop, which encompasses
many lines but sneaks by without braces due to the guts being a single
if statement.

The Linux kernel CVE team has assigned CVE-2021-47060 to this issue.

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:
