Subject: [PATCH 4.12 19/52] ipv6: do not set sk_destruct in IPV6_ADDRFORM sockopt

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


From: Xin Long <>

[ Upstream commit e8d411d2980723b8f8ba8e4dd78b694c5fd9ea3e ]

ChunYu found a kernel warn_on during syzkaller fuzzing:

[40226.038539] WARNING: CPU: 5 PID: 23720 at net/ipv4/af_inet.c:152 inet_sock_destruct+0x78d/0x9a0

[40226.376507]  apic_timer_interrupt+0x93/0xa0

The warn_on happned when sk->sk_rmem_alloc wasn't 0 in inet_sock_destruct.
As after commit f970bd9e3a06 ("udp: implement memory accounting helpers"),
udp has changed to use udp_destruct_sock as sk_destruct where it would
udp_rmem_release all rmem.

But IPV6_ADDRFORM sockopt sets sk_destruct with inet_sock_destruct after
changing family to PF_INET. If rmem is not 0 at that time, and there is
no place to release rmem before calling inet_sock_destruct, the warn_on
will be triggered.

This patch is to fix it by not setting sk_destruct in IPV6_ADDRFORM sockopt
any more. As IPV6_ADDRFORM sockopt only works for tcp and udp. TCP sock has
already set it's sk_destruct with inet_sock_destruct and UDP has set with
udp_destruct_sock since they're created.
