Subject: CVE-2021-47139: net: hns3: put off calling register_netdev() until client initialize complete


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

net: hns3: put off calling register_netdev() until client initialize complete

Currently, the netdevice is registered before client initializing
complete. So there is a timewindow between netdevice available
and usable. In this case, if user try to change the channel number
or ring param, it may cause the hns3_set_rx_cpu_rmap() being called
twice, and report bug.

Fix it by calling register_netdev() at the end of function

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:
