Subject: Re: [PATCH net] sctp: fix the issue sctp_diag uses lock_sock in

From: Xin Long <>
Date: Thu, 29 Sep 2016 02:55:44 +0800

> When sctp dumps all the ep->assocs, it needs to lock_sock first,
> but now it locks sock in rcu_read_lock, and lock_sock may sleep,
> which would break rcu_read_lock.
> This patch is to get and hold one sock when traversing the list.
> After that and get out of rcu_read_lock, lock and dump it. Then
> it will traverse the list again to get the next one until all
> sctp socks are dumped.
> For sctp_diag_dump_one, it fixes this issue by holding asoc and
> moving cb() out of rcu_read_lock in sctp_transport_lookup_process.
