Subject[PATCH 5.10 356/530] net: lapbether: Prevent racing when checking whether the netif is running
Date
From: Xie He <xie.he.0141@gmail.com>

[ Upstream commit 5acd0cfbfbb5a688da1bfb1a2152b0c855115a35 ]

There are two "netif_running" checks in this driver. One is in
"lapbeth_xmit" and the other is in "lapbeth_rcv". They serve to make
sure that the LAPB APIs called in these functions are called before
"lapb_unregister" is called by the "ndo_stop" function.

However, these "netif_running" checks are unreliable, because it's
possible that immediately after "netif_running" returns true, "ndo_stop"
is called (which causes "lapb_unregister" to be called).

This patch adds locking to make sure "lapbeth_xmit" and "lapbeth_rcv" can
reliably check and ensure the netif is running while doing their work.

Fixes: 1da177e4c3f4 ("Linux-2.6.12-rc2")
