Subject[PATCH 5.10 002/530] bluetooth: eliminate the potential race condition when removing the HCI controller
Date
From: Lin Ma <linma@zju.edu.cn>

commit e2cb6b891ad2b8caa9131e3be70f45243df82a80 upstream.

There is a possible race condition vulnerability between issuing a HCI
command and removing the cont. Specifically, functions hci_req_sync()
and hci_dev_do_close() can race each other like below:

thread-A in hci_req_sync() | thread-B in hci_dev_do_close()
| hci_req_sync_lock(hdev);
test_bit(HCI_UP, &hdev->flags); |
... | test_and_clear_bit(HCI_UP, &hdev->flags)
hci_req_sync_lock(hdev); |
|
In this commit we alter the sequence in function hci_req_sync(). Hence,
the thread-A cannot issue th.
