net: fix IP early demux races



David Wilder reported crashes caused by dst reuse.

<quote David>
  I am seeing a crash on a distro V4.2.3 kernel caused by a double
  release of a dst_entry.  In ipv4_dst_destroy() the call to
  list_empty() finds a poisoned next pointer, indicating the dst_entry
  has already been removed from the list and freed. The crash occurs
  18 to 24 hours into a run of a network stress exerciser.

Thanks to his detailed report and analysis, we were able to understand
the core issue.

IP early demux can associate a dst to skb, after a lookup in TCP/UDP
sockets.

When socket cache is not properly set, we want to store into
sk->sk_dst_cache the dst for future IP early demux lookups,
by acquiring a stable refcount on the dst.

Problem is this acquisition is simply using an atomic_inc(),
which works well, unless the dst was queued for destruction from
dst_release() noticing dst refcount went to zero, if DST_NOCACHE
was set on dst.

We need to make sure current refcount is not zero before incrementing
it, or risk double free as David reported.

This patch, being a stable candidate, adds two new helpers, and use
them only from IP early demux problematic paths.

It might be possible to merge in net-next skb_dst_force() and
skb_dst_force_safe(), but I prefer having the smallest patch for stable
kernels : Maybe some skb_dst_force() callers do not expect skb->dst
can suddenly be cleared.

Can probably be backported back to linux-3.6 kernels
