Subject: [PATCH 5.1 162/405] block: fix use-after-free on gendisk

[ Upstream commit 2c88e3c7ec32d7a40cc7c9b4a487cf90e4671bdd ]

commit 2da78092dda "block: Fix dev_t minor allocation lifetime"
specifically moved blk_free_devt(dev->devt) call to part_release()
to avoid reallocating device number before the device is fully
shutdown.

However, it can cause use-after-free on gendisk in get_gendisk().
We use md device as example to show the race scenes:

Process1		Worker			Process2
md_free
						blkdev_open
del_gendisk
  add delete_partition_work_fn() to wq
  						__blkdev_get
						get_gendisk
put_disk
  disk_release
    kfree(disk)
    						find part from ext_devt_idr
						get_disk_and_module(disk)
    					  	cause use after free

    			delete_partition_work_fn
			put_device(part)
    		  	part_release
		    	remove part from ext_devt_idr

Before <devt, hd_struct pointer> is removed from ext_devt_idr by
delete_partition_work_fn(), we can find the devt and then access
gendisk by hd_struct pointer. But, if we access the gendisk after
it have been freed, it can cause in use-after-freeon gendisk in
get_gendisk().

We fix this by adding a new helper blk_invalidate_devt() in
delete_partition() and del_gendisk(). It replaces hd_struct
pointer in idr with value 'NULL', and deletes the entry from
idr in part_release() as we do now.

Thanks to Jan Kara for providing the solution and more clear comments
for the code.
