tcp: Fix a connect() race with timewait sockets
Eric Dumazet [Fri, 4 Dec 2009 03:47:42 +0000 (03:47 +0000)]
When we find a timewait connection in __inet_hash_connect() and reuse
it for a new connection request, we have a race window, releasing bind
list lock and reacquiring it in __inet_twsk_kill() to remove timewait
socket from list.

Another thread might find the timewait socket we already chose, leading to
list corruption and crashes.

Fix is to remove timewait socket from bind list before releasing the bind lock.

Note: This problem happens if sysctl_tcp_tw_reuse is set.
