Subject: CVE-2021-47136: net: zero-initialize tc skb extension on allocation

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

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

net: zero-initialize tc skb extension on allocation

Function skb_ext_add() doesn't initialize created skb extension with any
value and leaves it up to the user. However, since extension of type
TC_SKB_EXT originally contained only single value tc_skb_ext->chain its
users used to just assign the chain value without setting whole extension
memory to zero first. This assumption changed when TC_SKB_EXT extension was
extended with additional fields but not all users were updated to
initialize the new fields which leads to use of uninitialized memory
afterwards. UBSAN log:

Fix the issue by providing new function tc_skb_ext_alloc() that allocates
tc skb extension and initializes its memory to 0 before returning it to the
caller. Change all existing users to use new API instead of calling
skb_ext_add() directly.

The Linux kernel CVE team has assigned CVE-2021-47136 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:
