Subject: Re: [PATCH v2 net] net: sch_generic: aviod concurrent reset and
 enqueue op for lockless qdisc

From: Yunsheng Lin <>
Date: Tue, 8 Sep 2020 19:02:34 +0800

> Currently there is concurrent reset and enqueue operation for the
> same lockless qdisc when there is no lock to synchronize the
> q->enqueue() in __dev_xmit_skb() with the qdisc reset operation in
> qdisc_deactivate() called by dev_deactivate_queue(), which may cause
> out-of-bounds access for priv->ring[] in hns3 driver if user has
> requested a smaller queue num when __dev_xmit_skb() still enqueue a
> skb with a larger queue_mapping after the corresponding qdisc is
> reset, and call hns3_nic_net_xmit() with that skb later.
> Reused the existing synchronize_net() in dev_deactivate_many() to
> make sure skb with larger queue_mapping enqueued to old qdisc(which
> is saved in dev_queue->qdisc_sleeping) will always be reset when
> dev_reset_queue() is called.
> Fixes: 6b3ba9146fe6 ("net: sched: allow qdiscs to handle locking")

> ChangeLog V2:
> 	Reuse existing synchronize_net().
