Subject: Re: [PATCH] tipc: avoid packets leaking on socket receive queue

From: Ying Xue <>
Date: Sun, 22 Nov 2015 15:46:05 +0800

> Even if we drain receive queue thoroughly in tipc_release() after tipc
> socket is removed from rhashtable, it is possible that some packets
> are in flight because some CPU runs receiver and did rhashtable lookup
> before we removed socket. They will achieve receive queue, but nobody
> delete them at all. To avoid this leak, we register a private socket
> destructor to purge receive queue, meaning releasing packets pending
> on receive queue will be delayed until the last reference of tipc
> socket will be released.
