[PATCH 5.0 004/117] netfilter: nf_tables: use-after-free in dynamic operations




[ Upstream commit 3f3a390dbd59d236f62cff8e8b20355ef7069e3d ]

Smatch reports:

       net/netfilter/nf_tables_api.c:2167 nf_tables_expr_destroy()
        error: dereferencing freed memory 'expr->ops'

net/netfilter/nf_tables_api.c
    2162 static void nf_tables_expr_destroy(const struct nft_ctx *ctx,
    2163                                   struct nft_expr *expr)
    2164 {
    2165        if (expr->ops->destroy)
    2166                expr->ops->destroy(ctx, expr);
                                                ^^^^
--> 2167        module_put(expr->ops->type->owner);
                           ^^^^^^^^^
    2168 }

Smatch says there are three functions which free expr->ops.
