batman-adv: Fix use-after-free/double-free of tt_req_node
The tt_req_node is added and removed from a list inside a spinlock. But the locking is sometimes removed even when the object is still referenced and will be used later via this reference. For example batadv_send_tt_request can create a new tt_req_node (including add to a list) and later re-acquires the lock to remove it from the list and to free it. But at this time another context could have already removed this tt_req_node from the list and freed it. CPU#0 batadv_batman_skb_recv from net_device 0 -> batadv_iv_ogm_receive -> batadv_iv_ogm_process -> batadv_iv_ogm_process_per_outif -> batadv_tvlv_ogm_receive -> batadv_tvlv_ogm_receive -> batadv_tvlv_containers_process -> batadv_tvlv_call_handler -> batadv_tt_tvlv_ogm_handler_v1 -> batadv_tt_update_orig -> batadv_send_tt_request -> batadv_tt_req_node_new spin_lock(...) allocates new tt_req_node and adds it to list spin_unlock(...) return tt_req_node CPU#1 batadv_batman_skb_recv from net_device 1 -> batadv_recv_unicast_tvlv -> batadv_tvlv_containers_process -> batadv_tvlv_call_handler -> batadv_tt_tvlv_unicast_handler_v1 -> batadv_handle_tt_response spin_lock(...) tt_req_node gets removed from list and is freed spin_unlock(...) CPU#0 <- returned to batadv_send_tt_request spin_lock(...) tt_req_node gets removed from list and is freed MEMORY CORRUPTION/SEGFAULT/... spin_unlock(...) This can only be solved via reference counting to allow multiple contexts to handle the list manipulation while making sure that only the last context holding a reference will free the object.
