Subject: [PATCH net 0/2] net: nexthop: multipath null ptr deref fixes

Hi,
Recently I found that we can cause a null ptr dereference when using
nexthop groups due to .nh getting set to null or due to num_nh going to
0 while we're selecting a path and the nexthop multipath group is being
modified. The reason is that the .nh ptr is set and read without any sync
primitives so in theory it can become null at any point (being cleared on
nh group removal), and also the nh count in a group (num_nh), when it
becomes == 0 while destroying a nh group and we hit it then in
nexthop_select_path() rc would remain == NULL and we'll deref a null ptr.
So there are 2 separate issues, first is nexthop_select_path
dereferencing .nh without any checks and the second is nexthop_select_path
users dereferencing its return value without checking it first. This set
fixes both issues as they are closely related and caused by the same
actions: nexthop delete or replace.

The null ptr deref can be caused by running traffic to a route using a
multipath nexthop and in parallel doing replaces of one of the nexthop
members or while deleting the nexthop group (again in parallel).
I've run the above test for a few hours with these fixes in place.

Here's one such trace:
