net: Separate the close_list and the unreg_list v2
Separate the unreg_list and the close_list in dev_close_many preventing dev_close_many from permuting the unreg_list. The permutations of the unreg_list have resulted in cases where the loopback device is accessed it has been freed in code such as dst_ifdown. Resulting in subtle memory corruption. This is the second bug from sharing the storage between the close_list and the unreg_list. The issues that crop up with sharing are apparently too subtle to show up in normal testing or usage, so let's forget about being clever and use two separate lists. v2: Make all callers pass in a close_list to dev_close_many Signed-off-by: "Eric W. Biederman" <ebiederm@xmission.com> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
