Description Vasily Averin 2007-03-14 08:36:58 EDT
SWsoft Virtuozzo/OpenVZ Linux kernel team has discovered double free memory
corruption in smbfs.

Smbfs allocates rq_trans2buffer to handle server's multi transaction2 response
messages. As struct smb_request may be reused, rq_trans2buffer is freed before
each new request. However if last servers's response is not multi but single
trans2 message then new rq_trans2buffer is not allocated but last smb_rput still
tries to free it again.
To prevent this issue rq_trans2buffer pointer should be set to NULL after kfree
