[PATCH 4.4 16/88] ax25: fix a use-after-free in ax25_fillin_cb()




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

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

From: Cong Wang <xiyou.wangcong@xxxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit c433570458e49bccea5c551df628d058b3526289 ]

There are multiple issues here:

1. After freeing dev->ax25_ptr, we need to set it to NULL otherwise
   we may use a dangling pointer.

2. There is a race between ax25_setsockopt() and device notifier as
   reported by syzbot. Close it by holding RTNL lock.

3. We need to test if dev->ax25_ptr is NULL before using it.
