netinet6: prevent a crash on empty ifp

Authored by on Jun 8 2022, 12:02 PM.



Since 000c42faf375 when in6_setscope() is called very likely ifp == NULL
is unhandled which can cause the following panic caused PPPoE connectivity
acquire when IPv6 is activated and not everything is properly connected yet.

Event Timeline

Is the in6_selectroute() KPI allowed to return success and set ifp to NULL? If it is not allowed, then the fix is incorrect, just hiding a problem.

Franco, do you have a crash core available?

I don't have a crash core and this only happened once on a customer device in FreeBSD 12.

Either way the current code is wrong if ifp cannot be null we shouldn't protect mtu read or we should be careful as handled in the patch. I'm fine with either way :)

When I was investigating this I think the loophole somewhere around where potentially due to AND condition ifp could be NULL and return value zero and I'm not comfortable changing the network plumbing down there.

As a part of D35117, I'm working on the changes here that will ensure ifp is non-NULL. Currently writing tests to check variety of possible conditions, hope to publish an updated version a a couple of days.

D35117 looks reasonable, let me abandon this then :)
