Michael S. Tsirkin - June 20, 2013, 11:51 a.m.
vhost_net_ubuf_put_and_wait has a confusing name:
it will actually also free it's argument.
Thus since commit 1280c27f8e29acf4af2da914e80ec27c3dbd5c01
vhost_net_flush tries to use the argument after passing it
to vhost_net_ubuf_put_and_wait, this results
in use after free.
To fix, don't free the argument in vhost_net_ubuf_put_and_wait,
add an new API for callers that want to free ubufs.

I sent the same patch against 3.10 separately.
This one is for stable, against 3.9/3.8 - the code moved around
since then.
Not sending to stable directly since Dave Miller handles
it for net drivers normally.
