When binding an already bound LLC socket, network devices references would
be put, leading to a use-after-free.
A program binding an LLC socket multiple times was used to test this.
A pre-req commit is included as it allows dev_put to be called with a NULL parameter.
The fix is the one applied to 5.10.y tree as the upstream version of the
original fix required a new function that is not present on 5.13.
Other error paths on the affected functions were reviewed.
LLC socket users would be affected. LLC require CAP_NET_RAW on the initial network namespace.
Eric Dumazet (1):
llc: only change llc->dev when bind() succeeds
Yajun Deng (1):
netdevice: add the case if dev is NULL
