Subject: [PATCH 4.4 43/50] net: fix deadlock while clearing neighbor proxy table

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

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

From: Wolfgang Bumiller <w.bumiller@...xmox.com>


[ Upstream commit 53b76cdf7e8fecec1d09e38aad2f8579882591a8 ]

When coming from ndisc_netdev_event() in net/ipv6/ndisc.c,
neigh_ifdown() is called with &nd_tbl, locking this while
clearing the proxy neighbor entries when eg. deleting an
interface. Calling the table's pndisc_destructor() with the
lock still held, however, can cause a deadlock: When a
multicast listener is available an IGMP packet of type
ICMPV6_MGM_REDUCTION may be sent out. When reaching
ip6_finish_output2(), if no neighbor entry for the target
address is found, __neigh_create() is called with &nd_tbl,
which it'll want to lock.

Move the elements into their own list, then unlock the table
and perform the destruction.

Bugzilla: https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=199289
Fixes: 6fd6ce2056de ("ipv6: Do not depend on rt->n in ip6_finish_output2().")
