Subject: [PATCH] xen/netfront: destroy queues before real_num_tx_queues is zeroed

xennet_destroy_queues() relies on info->netdev->real_num_tx_queues to
delete queues. Since d7dac083414eb5bb99a6d2ed53dc2c1b405224e5
("net-sysfs: update the queue counts in the unregistration path"),
unregister_netdev() indirectly sets real_num_tx_queues to 0. Those two
facts together means, that xennet_destroy_queues() called from
xennet_remove() cannot do its job, because it's called after
unregister_netdev(). This results in kfree-ing queues that are still
linked in napi, which ultimately crashes:

Fix this by calling xennet_destroy_queues() from xennet_close() too,
when real_num_tx_queues is still available. This ensures that queues are
destroyed when real_num_tx_queues is set to 0, regardless of how
unregister_netdev() was called.

While this fixes the issue, I'm not sure if that is the correct thing
to do. xennet_remove() calls xennet_destroy_queues() under rtnl_lock,
which may be important here? Just moving xennet_destroy_queues() before
unregister_netdev() in xennet_remove() did not helped - it crashed in
another way (use-after-free in xennet_close()).
