Subject: CVE-2024-26681: netdevsim: avoid potential loop in nsim_dev_trap_report_work()


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

netdevsim: avoid potential loop in nsim_dev_trap_report_work()

Many syzbot reports include the following trace [1]

If nsim_dev_trap_report_work() can not grab the mutex,
it should rearm itself at least one jiffie later.

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:
