Subject: Re: [PATCH net] inet: fix races with reqsk timers

From: Eric Dumazet <>
Date: Mon, 10 Aug 2015 09:09:13 -0700

> From: Eric Dumazet <>
> reqsk_queue_destroy() and reqsk_queue_unlink() should use
> del_timer_sync() instead of del_timer() before calling reqsk_put(),
> otherwise we could free a req still used by another cpu.
> But before doing so, reqsk_queue_destroy() must release syn_wait_lock
