Subject: [PATCH 4.16 44/81] l2tp: fix {pppol2tp, l2tp_dfs}_seq_stop() in case of seq_file overflow

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

------------------

From: Guillaume Nault <g.nault@...halink.fr>


[ Upstream commit 5411b6187adf62909e3b998ac782e722904c7487 ]

Commit 0e0c3fee3a59 ("l2tp: hold reference on tunnels printed in pppol2tp proc file")
assumed that if pppol2tp_seq_stop() was called with non-NULL private
data (the 'v' pointer), then pppol2tp_seq_start() would not be called
again. It turns out that this isn't guaranteed, and overflowing the
seq_file's buffer in pppol2tp_seq_show() is a way to get into this
situation.

Therefore, pppol2tp_seq_stop() needs to reset pd->tunnel, so that
pppol2tp_seq_start() won't drop a reference again if it gets called.
We also have to clear pd->session, because the rest of the code expects
a non-NULL tunnel when pd->session is set.

The l2tp_debugfs module has the same issue. Fix it in the same way.
