DescriptionIn the Linux kernel, the following vulnerability has been resolved: drivers/perf: hisi: use cpuhp_state_remove_instance_nocalls() for hisi_hns3_pmu uninit process When tearing down a 'hisi_hns3' PMU, we mistakenly run the CPU hotplug callbacks after the device has been unregistered, leading to fireworks when we try to execute empty function callbacks within the driver: | Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 0000000000000000 | CPU: 0 PID: 15 Comm: cpuhp/0 Tainted: G W O 5.12.0-rc4+ #1 | Hardware name: , BIOS KpxxxFPGA 1P B600 V143 04/22/2021 | pstate: 80400009 (Nzcv daif +PAN -UAO -TCO BTYPE=--) | pc : perf_pmu_migrate_context+0x98/0x38c | lr : perf_pmu_migrate_context+0x94/0x38c | | Call trace: | perf_pmu_migrate_context+0x98/0x38c | hisi_hns3_pmu_offline_cpu+0x104/0x12c [hisi_hns3_pmu] Use cpuhp_state_remove_instance_nocalls() instead of cpuhp_state_remove_instance() so that the notifiers don't execute after the PMU device has been unregistered.
