ping: Fix race in free in receive path
[ Upstream commit fc752f1f43c1c038a2c6ae58cc739ebb5953ccb0 ] An exception is seen in ICMP ping receive path where the skb destructor sock_rfree() tries to access a freed socket. This happens because ping_rcv() releases socket reference with sock_put() and this internally frees up the socket. Later icmp_rcv() will try to free the skb and as part of this, skb destructor is called and which leads to a kernel panic as the socket is freed already in ping_rcv(). -->|exception -007|sk_mem_uncharge -007|sock_rfree -008|skb_release_head_state -009|skb_release_all -009|__kfree_skb -010|kfree_skb -011|icmp_rcv -012|ip_local_deliver_finish Fix this incorrect free by cloning this skb and processing this cloned skb instead.
