Subject: Re: [PATCH net 1/2] caif: Bugfix list_del_rcu race in

From: Sjur Brændeland <>

> Always use cfmuxl_remove_uplayer when removing a up-layer.
> cfmuxl_ctrlcmd() can be called independently and in parallel with
> cfmuxl_remove_uplayer(). The race between them could cause list_del_rcu
> to be called on a node which has been already taken out from the list.
> That lead to a (rare) crash on accessing poisoned node->prev inside
> list_del_rcu.
> This fix ensures that deletion are done holding the same lock.
