Subject: [PATCH 4.14 36/80] llc: hold llc_sap before release_sock()

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


From: Cong Wang <>

[ Upstream commit f7e43672683b097bb074a8fe7af9bc600a23f231 ]

syzbot reported we still access llc->sap in llc_backlog_rcv()
after it is freed in llc_sap_remove_socket():

llc->sap is refcount'ed and llc_sap_remove_socket() is paired
with llc_sap_add_socket(). This can be amended by holding its refcount
before llc_sap_remove_socket() and releasing it after release_sock().
