Subject[PATCH v0] hamradio: improve the incomplete fix to avoid NPD
Date
The previous commit 3e0588c291d6 ("hamradio: defer ax25 kfree after
unregister_netdev") reorder the kfree operations and unregister_netdev
operation to prevent UAF.

This commit improves the previous one by also deferring the nullify of
the ax->tty pointer. Otherwise, a NULL pointer dereference bug occurs.
Partial of the stack trace is shown below.

BUG: kernel NULL pointer dereference, address: 0000000000000538
RIP: 0010:ax_xmit+0x1f9/0x400
...
Call Trace:

__x64_sys_connect+0x11/0x20
do_syscall_64+0x33/0x40
entry_SYSCALL_64_after_hwframe+0x44/0xa9

The crash point is shown as below

static void ax_encaps(...) {
...
set_bit(TTY_DO_WRITE_WAKEUP, &ax->tty->flags); // ax->tty = NULL!
...
}

By placing the nullify action after the unregister_netdev, the ax->tty
pointer won't be assigned as NULL net_device framework layer is well
synchronized.
