Subject: [PATCH net 0/9] rxrpc: Fixes for I/O thread conversion/SACK table

Here are some fixes for AF_RXRPC:

 (1) Fix missing unlock in rxrpc's sendmsg.

 (2) Fix (lack of) propagation of security settings to rxrpc_call.

 (3) Fix NULL ptr deref in rxrpc_unuse_local().

 (4) Fix problem with kthread_run() not invoking the I/O thread function if
     the kthread gets stopped first.  Possibly this should actually be
     fixed in the kthread code.

 (5) Fix locking problem as putting a peer (which may be done from RCU) may
     now invoke kthread_stop().

 (6) Fix switched parameters in a couple of trace calls.

 (7) Fix I/O thread's checking for kthread stop to make sure it completes
     all outstanding work before returning so that calls are cleaned up.

 (8) Fix an uninitialised var in the new rxperf test server.

 (9) Fix the return value of rxrpc_new_incoming_call() so that the checks
     on it work correctly.

The patches fix at least one syzbot bug[1] and probably some others that
don't have reproducers[2][3][4].  I think it also fixes another[5], but
that showed another failure during testing that was different to the

There's also an outstanding bug in rxrpc_put_peer()[6] that is fixed by a
combination of several patches in my rxrpc-next branch, but I haven't
included that here.

The patches are tagged here:
