Subject: [Patch net] genetlink: get rid of family->attrbuf

genl_family_rcv_msg_attrs_parse() reuses the global family->attrbuf
when family->parallel_ops is false. However, family->attrbuf is not
protected by any lock on the genl_family_rcv_msg_doit() code path.

This leads to several different consequences, one of them is UAF,
like the following:

genl_family_rcv_msg_doit():		genl_start():
					  genl_family_rcv_msg_attrs_parse()
					    attrbuf = family->attrbuf
					    __nlmsg_parse(attrbuf);
  genl_family_rcv_msg_attrs_parse()
    attrbuf = family->attrbuf
    __nlmsg_parse(attrbuf);
					  info->attrs = attrs;
					  cb->data = info;

netlink_unicast_kernel():
 consume_skb()
					genl_lock_dumpit():
					  genl_dumpit_info(cb)->attrs

Note family->attrbuf is an array of pointers to the skb data, once
the skb is freed, any dereference of family->attrbuf will be a UAF.

Maybe we could serialize the family->attrbuf with genl_mutex too, but
that would make the locking more complicated. Instead, we can just get
rid of family->attrbuf and always allocate attrbuf from heap like the
family->parallel_ops==true code path. This may add some performance
overhead but comparing with taking the global genl_mutex, it still
looks better.

Fixes: 75cdbdd08900 ("net: ieee802154: have genetlink code to parse the attrs during dumpit")
Fixes: 057af7071344 ("net: tipc: have genetlink code to parse the attrs during dumpit")
