Subject: [PATCH] virtio_vsock: Fix race condition in virtio_transport_recv_pkt

When client on the host tries to connect(SOCK_STREAM, O_NONBLOCK) to the
server on the guest, there will be a panic on a ThunderX2 (armv8a server):

[  463.718844] Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 0000000000000000

The race condition is as follows:
Task1                                Task2
=====                                =====
__sock_release                       virtio_transport_recv_pkt
  __vsock_release                      vsock_find_bound_socket (found sk)
    lock_sock_nested
    vsock_remove_sock
    sock_orphan
      sk_set_socket(sk, NULL)
    sk->sk_shutdown = SHUTDOWN_MASK
    ...
    release_sock
                                    lock_sock
                                       virtio_transport_recv_connecting
                                         sk->sk_socket->state (panic!)

The root cause is that vsock_find_bound_socket can't hold the lock_sock,
so there is a small race window between vsock_find_bound_socket() and
lock_sock(). If __vsock_release() is running in another task,
sk->sk_socket will be set to NULL inadvertently.

Thus check the data structure member “sk_shutdown” (suggested by Stefano)
after a call of the function “lock_sock” since this field is set to
“SHUTDOWN_MASK” under the protection of “lock_sock_nested”.
