Subject[PATCH 5.10 20/33] ethtool: do not perform operations on net devices being unregistered
Date
From: Antoine Tenart <atenart@kernel.org>

commit dde91ccfa25fd58f64c397d91b81a4b393100ffa upstream.

There is a short period between a net device starts to be unregistered
and when it is actually gone. In that time frame ethtool operations
could still be performed, which might end up in unwanted or undefined
behaviours[1].

Do not allow ethtool operations after a net device starts its
unregistration. This patch targets the netlink part as the ioctl one
isn't affected: the reference to the net device is taken and the
operation is executed within an rtnl lock section and the net device
won't be found after unregister.

[1] For example adding Tx queues after unregister ends up in NULL
pointer exceptions and UaFs, such as:
