Description Bjoern A. Zeeb freebsd_committer 2018-10-11 23:58:27 UTC
Check if we need to apply these two commits from udp6_input() also to IPv4
( after https://reviews.freebsd.org/D17525 ) is in.

Comment 1 Bjoern A. Zeeb freebsd_committer 2018-10-12 21:21:29 UTC
The locking is a lot simpler in legacy IP, so we don't have to apply the changes 1:1 but can get away with a single check.
Comment 2 Bjoern A. Zeeb freebsd_committer 2018-10-12 21:34:05 UTC

XXX TODO: harmonize IPv6 and IPv4 locking and code flow.

  In udp_input() when walking the pcblist we can come across
  an inp marked FREED after the epoch(9) changes.
  Check once we hold the lock and skip the inp if it is the case.

  Contrary to IPv6 the locking of the inp is outside the multicast
  section and hence a single check seems to suffice.
