Subject: Re: [PATCH net] net/flow: fix fc->percpu NULL pointer dereference

Hi Steffen,

BTW, If we put the check in xfrm_policy_flush(), we can prevent it earlier.
But If we put the check in flow_cache_percpu_empty(), we can prevent
other functions set fc->percpu to NULL, although not much possible : )

So I'm not quite sure whether we should put the check in
flow_cache_percpu_empty() or in xfrm_policy_flush().

Do you have any suggestion?

Thanks
Hangbin
