Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 4.19 039/671] tipc: eliminate message disordering during binding table update

From: Jon Maloy <jon.maloy@...csson.com>

[ Upstream commit 988f3f1603d4650409db5334355cbf7b13ef50c3 ]

We have seen the following race scenario:
1) named_distribute() builds a "bulk" message, containing a PUBLISH
   item for a certain publication. This is based on the contents of
   the binding tables's 'cluster_scope' list.
2) tipc_named_withdraw() removes the same publication from the list,
   bulds a WITHDRAW message and distributes it to all cluster nodes.
3) tipc_named_node_up(), which was calling named_distribute(), sends
   out the bulk message built under 1)
4) The WITHDRAW message arrives at the just detected node, finds
   no corresponding publication, and is dropped.
5) The PUBLISH item arrives at the same node, is added to its binding
   table, and remains there forever.

This arrival disordering was earlier taken care of by the backlog queue,
originally added for a different purpose, which was removed in the
commit referred to below, but we now need a different solution.
In this commit, we replace the rcu lock protecting the 'cluster_scope'
list with a regular RW lock which comprises even the sending of the
bulk message. This both guarantees both the list integrity and the
message sending order. We will later add a commit which cleans up
this code further.

Note that this commit needs recently added commit d3092b2efca1 ("tipc:
fix unsafe rcu locking when accessing publication list") to apply
cleanly.

Fixes: 37922ea4a310 ("tipc: permit overlapping service ranges in name table")
