l2tp: prevent creation of sessions on terminated tunnels
commit f3c66d4e144a0904ea9b95d23ed9f8eb38c11bfb upstream.
l2tp_tunnel_destruct() sets tunnel->sock to NULL, then removes the
tunnel from the pernet list and finally closes all its sessions.
Therefore, it's possible to add a session to a tunnel that is still
reachable, but for which tunnel->sock has already been reset. This can
make l2tp_session_create() dereference a NULL pointer when calling
This patch adds the .acpt_newsess field to struct l2tp_tunnel, which is
used by l2tp_tunnel_closeall() to prevent addition of new sessions to
tunnels. Resetting tunnel->sock is done after l2tp_tunnel_closeall()
returned, so that l2tp_session_add_to_tunnel() can safely take a
reference on it when .acpt_newsess is true.
The .acpt_newsess field is modified in l2tp_tunnel_closeall(), rather
than in l2tp_tunnel_destruct(), so that it benefits all tunnel removal
mechanisms. E.g. on UDP tunnels, a session could be added to a tunnel
after l2tp_udp_encap_destroy() proceeded. This would prevent the tunnel
from being removed because of the references held by this new session
on the tunnel and its socket. Even though the session could be removed
manually later on, this defeats the purpose of
commit 9980d001cec8 ("l2tp: add udp encap socket destroy handler").
