[PATCH 4.9 053/171] tipc: fix a race condition of releasing subscriber object




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

------------------

[ Upstream commit fd849b7c41f0fabfe783d0691a63c5518e8ebc99 ]

No matter whether a request is inserted into workqueue as a work item
to cancel a subscription or to delete a subscription's subscriber
asynchronously, the work items may be executed in different workers.
As a result, it doesn't mean that one request which is raised prior to
another request is definitely handled before the latter. By contrast,
if the latter request is executed before the former request, below
error may happen:

In above scenario, the request of deleting subscriber was performed
earlier than the request of canceling a subscription although the
latter was issued before the former, which means tipc_subscrb_delete()
was called before tipc_subscrp_cancel(). As a result, when
tipc_subscrb_subscrp_delete() called by tipc_subscrp_cancel() was
executed to cancel a subscription, the subscription's subscriber
refcnt had been decreased to 1. After tipc_subscrp_delete() where
the subscriber was freed because its refcnt was decremented to zero,
but the subscriber's lock had to be released, as a consequence, panic
happened.

By contrast, if we increase subscriber's refcnt before
tipc_subscrb_subscrp_delete() is called in tipc_subscrp_cancel(),
the panic issue can be avoided.
