Subject: Re: [PATCH] net: qrtr: Allocate workqueue before kernel_bind

From: Chris Lew <>
Date: Thu, 28 May 2020 16:05:26 -0700

> A null pointer dereference in qrtr_ns_data_ready() is seen if a client
> opens a qrtr socket before qrtr_ns_init() can bind to the control port.
> When the control port is bound, the ENETRESET error will be broadcasted
> and clients will close their sockets. This results in DEL_CLIENT
> packets being sent to the ns and qrtr_ns_data_ready() being called
> without the workqueue being allocated.
> Allocate the workqueue before setting sk_data_ready and binding to the
> control port. This ensures that the work and workqueue structs are
> allocated and initialized before qrtr_ns_data_ready can be called.
