Subject: [PATCH 4.9 17/74] jbd2: fix use after free in kjournald2()

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

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

From: Sahitya Tummala <stummala@...eaurora.org>

commit dbfcef6b0f4012c57bc0b6e0e660d5ed12a5eaed upstream.

Below is the synchronization issue between unmount and kjournald2
contexts, which results into use after free issue in kjournald2().
Fix this issue by using journal->j_state_lock to synchronize the
wait_event() done in journal_kill_thread() and the wake_up() done
in kjournald2().

TASK 1:
umount cmd:
   |--jbd2_journal_destroy() {
       |--journal_kill_thread() {
            write_lock(&journal->j_state_lock);
	    journal->j_flags |= JBD2_UNMOUNT;
	    ...
	    write_unlock(&journal->j_state_lock);
	    wake_up(&journal->j_wait_commit);	   TASK 2 wakes up here:
	    					   kjournald2() {
						     ...
						     checks JBD2_UNMOUNT flag and calls goto end-loop;
						     ...
						     end_loop:
						       write_unlock(&journal->j_state_lock);
						       journal->j_task = NULL; --> If this thread gets
						       pre-empted here, then TASK 1 wait_event will
						       exit even before this thread is completely
						       done.
	    wait_event(journal->j_wait_done_commit, journal->j_task == NULL);
	    ...
	    write_lock(&journal->j_state_lock);
	    write_unlock(&journal->j_state_lock);
	  }
       |--kfree(journal);
     }
}
						       wake_up(&journal->j_wait_done_commit); --> this step
						       now results into use after free issue.
						   }
