    vxlan: test dev->flags & IFF_UP before calling netif_rx() · ffed570a

    [ Upstream commit 4179cb5a4c924cd233eaadd081882425bc98f44e ]
    netif_rx() must be called under a strict contract.
    At device dismantle phase, core networking clears IFF_UP
    and flush_all_backlogs() is called after rcu grace period
    to make sure no incoming packet might be in a cpu backlog
    and still referencing the device.
    Most drivers call netif_rx() from their interrupt handler,
    and since the interrupts are disabled at device dismantle,
    netif_rx() does not have to check dev->flags & IFF_UP
    Virtual drivers do not have this guarantee, and must
    therefore make the check themselves.
    Otherwise we risk use-after-free and/or crashes.
    Note this patch also fixes a small issue that came
    with commit ce6502a8 ("vxlan: fix a use after free
    in vxlan_encap_bypass"), since the dev->stats.rx_dropped
    change was done on the wrong device.
    Fixes: d342894c ("vxlan: virtual extensible lan")
    Fixes: ce6502a8
     ("vxlan: fix a use after free in vxlan_encap_bypass")
