net/sched: act_ife: fix recursive lock and idr leak
a recursive lock warning [1] can be observed with the following script, # $TC actions add action ife encode allow prio pass index 42 IFE type 0xED3E # $TC actions replace action ife encode allow tcindex pass index 42 in case the kernel was unable to run the last command (e.g. because of the impossibility to load 'act_meta_skbtcindex'). For a similar reason, the kernel can leak idr in the error path of tcf_ife_init(), because tcf_idr_release() is not called after successful idr reservation: # $TC actions add action ife encode allow tcindex index 47 IFE type 0xED3E RTNETLINK answers: No such file or directory We have an error talking to the kernel # $TC actions add action ife encode allow tcindex index 47 IFE type 0xED3E RTNETLINK answers: No space left on device We have an error talking to the kernel # $TC actions add action ife encode use mark 7 type 0xfefe pass index 47 IFE type 0xFEFE RTNETLINK answers: No space left on device We have an error talking to the kernel Since tcfa_lock is already taken when the action is being edited, a call to tcf_idr_release() wrongly makes tcf_idr_cleanup() take the same lock again. On the other hand, tcf_idr_release() needs to be called in the error path of tcf_ife_init(), to undo the last tcf_idr_create() invocation. Fix both problems in tcf_ife_init(). Since the cleanup() routine can now be called when ife->params is NULL, also add a NULL pointer check to avoid calling kfree_rcu(NULL, rcu).
