net: fix divide by zero in tcp algorithm illinois
Reading TCP stats when using TCP Illinois congestion control algorithm can cause a divide by zero kernel oops. The division by zero occur in tcp_illinois_info() at: do_div(t, ca->cnt_rtt); where ca->cnt_rtt can become zero (when rtt_reset is called) Steps to Reproduce: 1. Register tcp_illinois: # sysctl -w net.ipv4.tcp_congestion_control=illinois 2. Monitor internal TCP information via command "ss -i" # watch -d ss -i 3. Establish new TCP conn to machine Either it fails at the initial conn, or else it needs to wait for a loss or a reset. This is only related to reading stats. The function avg_delay() also performs the same divide, but is guarded with a (ca->cnt_rtt > 0) at its calling point in update_params(). Thus, simply fix tcp_illinois_info(). Function tcp_illinois_info() / get_info() is called without socket lock. Thus, eliminate any race condition on ca->cnt_rtt by using a local stack variable. Simply reuse info.tcpv_rttcnt, as its already set to ca->cnt_rtt. Function avg_delay() is not affected by this race condition, as its called with the socket lock.
