[PATCH 4.19 020/148] netfilter: nf_tables: fix suspicious RCU usage in nft_chain_stats_replace()




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

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

[ Upstream commit 4c05ec47384ab3627b62814e8f886e90cc38ce15 ]

basechain->stats is rcu protected data which is updated from
nft_chain_stats_replace(). This function is executed from the commit
phase which holds the pernet nf_tables commit mutex - not the global
nfnetlink subsystem mutex.

Test commands to reproduce the problem are:
   %iptables-nft -I INPUT
   %iptables-nft -Z
   %iptables-nft -Z

This patch uses RCU calls to handle basechain->stats updates to fix a
splat that looks like:
