Subject: [PATCH 4.9 035/130] svcrpc: dont leak contexts on PROC_DESTROY

4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: J. Bruce Fields <>

commit 78794d1890708cf94e3961261e52dcec2cc34722 upstream.

Context expiry times are in units of seconds since boot, not unix time.

The use of get_seconds() here therefore sets the expiry time decades in
the future.  This prevents timely freeing of contexts destroyed by
client RPC_GSS_PROC_DESTROY requests.  We'd still free them eventually
(when the module is unloaded or the container shut down), but a lot of
contexts could pile up before then.
