[PATCH 4.15 109/146] netfilter: ipt_CLUSTERIP: fix a race condition of proc file creation

4.15-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Cong Wang <xiyou.wangcong@xxxxxxxxx>

commit b3e456fce9f51d6276e576d00271e2813c1b8b67 upstream.

There is a race condition between clusterip_config_entry_put()
and clusterip_config_init(), after we release the spinlock in
clusterip_config_entry_put(), a new proc file with a same IP could
be created immediately since it is already removed from the configs
list, therefore it triggers this warning:

------------[ cut here ]------------
proc_dir_entry 'ipt_CLUSTERIP/' already registered
WARNING: CPU: 1 PID: 4152 at fs/proc/generic.c:330 proc_register+0x2a4/0x370 fs/proc/generic.c:329
Kernel panic - not syncing: panic_on_warn set ...

As a quick fix, just move the proc_remove() inside the spinlock.
