Subject: net: BUG still has locks held in unix_stream_splice_read


While running syzkaller fuzzer on commit
b66484cd74706fa8681d051840fe4b18a3da40ff (Oct 7), I am getting:

[ BUG: syz-executor/15138 still has locks held! ]

I suspect this is:

commit 25869262ef7af24ccde988867ac3eb1c3d4b88d4
Author: Al Viro <>

    skb_splice_bits(): get rid of callback
    since pipe_lock is the outermost now, we don't need to drop/regain
    socket locks around the call of splice_to_pipe() from skb_splice_bits(),
    which kills the need to have a socket-specific callback; we can just
    call splice_to_pipe() and be done with that.
