In the Linux kernel, the following vulnerability has been resolved: net/mlx5e: nullify cq->dbg pointer in mlx5_debug_cq_remove() Prior to this patch in case mlx5_core_destroy_cq() failed it proceeds to rest of destroy operations. mlx5_core_destroy_cq() could be called again by user and cause additional call of mlx5_debug_cq_remove(). cq->dbg was not nullify in previous call and cause the crash.
