Subject[PATCH net] net: set default network namespace in init_dummy_netdev()
Date
Assign a default net namespace to netdevs created by init_dummy_netdev().
Fixes a NULL pointer dereference caused by busy-polling a socket bound to
an iwlwifi wireless device, which bumps the per-net BUSYPOLLRXPACKETS stat
if napi_poll() received packets:

BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 0000000000000190
IP: napi_busy_loop+0xd6/0x200
Call Trace:
sock_poll+0x5e/0x80
do_sys_poll+0x324/0x5a0
SyS_poll+0x6c/0xf0
do_syscall_64+0x6b/0x1f0
entry_SYSCALL_64_after_hwframe+0x3d/0xa2

Fixes: 7db6b048da3b ("net: Commonize busy polling code to focus on napi_id instead of socket")
