Description yizhouzhou 2015-08-27 12:11:38 UTC
by examine the lock mechanism in if_lagg.c, I find race conditions as follows:

in function lagg_port_destroy: 
890         ifp->if_lagg = NULL;
is protected by rm_wlock on its sc

while in function lagg_input:
1656         struct lagg_port *lp = ifp->if_lagg;
1657         struct lagg_softc *sc = lp->lp_softc;
is not protected by any locks.

possible fixed:
replace the locks in if_lagg.c with a global rmlock
and check the value of ifp->if_lagg in lagg_input
to be not null after read locked

Many thanks
