Subject[PATCH 5.15 32/69] net/tls: Remove the context from the list in tls_device_down
From: Maxim Mikityanskiy <>

commit f6336724a4d4220c89a4ec38bca84b03b178b1a3 upstream.

tls_device_down takes a reference on all contexts it's going to move to
the degraded state (software fallback). If sk_destruct runs afterwards,
it can reduce the reference counter back to 1 and return early without
destroying the context. Then tls_device_down will release the reference
it took and call tls_device_free_ctx. However, the context will still
stay in tls_device_down_list forever. The list will contain an item,
memory for which is released, making a memory corruption possible.

Fix the above bug by properly removing the context from all lists before
any call to tls_device_free_ctx.
