[PATCH AUTOSEL 4.19 024/123] netfilter: nf_tables: fix use-after-free when deleting compat expressions




From: Florian Westphal <fw@xxxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit 29e3880109e357fdc607b4393f8308cef6af9413 ]

nft_compat ops do not have static storage duration, unlike all other
expressions.

When nf_tables_expr_destroy() returns, expr->ops might have been
free'd already, so we need to store next address before calling
expression destructor.

For same reason, we can't deref match pointer after nft_xt_put().

This can be easily reproduced by adding msleep() before
nft_match_destroy() returns.

Fixes: 0ca743a55991 ("netfilter: nf_tables: add compatibility layer for x_tables")
