CVE-2021-47196

NameCVE-2021-47196
DescriptionIn the Linux kernel, the following vulnerability has been resolved: RDMA/core: Set send and receive CQ before forwarding to the driver Preset both receive and send CQ pointers prior to call to the drivers and overwrite it later again till the mlx4 is going to be changed do not overwrite ibqp properties. This change is needed for mlx5, because in case of QP creation failure, it will go to the path of QP destroy which relies on proper CQ pointers.
