[lustre-devel] [PATCH 50/50] lustre: ptlrpc: Use after free of 'conn' in rhashtable retry

From: Shaun Tancheff <shaun.tancheff at hpe.com>

Use after free of 'conn' in the uncommon case of
rhashtable_lookup_get_insert_fast failing with -EBUSY or -ENOMEM

Move kfree(conn) below the retry and set conn2 to NULL
on error, propagating to conn and returning to the caller.

HPE-bug-id: LUS-10776
Fixes: ac2370ac2b ("staging: lustre: ptlrpc: convert conn_hash to rhashtable");
WC-bug-id: https://jira.whamcloud.com/browse/LU-15634
