    ms/ipsec: Fix aborted xfrm policy dump crash
    The patch fixes the same issue as mainline commit 1137b5e2529a ("ipsec: Fix
    aborted xfrm policy dump crash") but in a different way.
    The root of the problem is that xfrm_policy_walk_done() may be called when
    xfrm_policy_walk instance is not initialized yet, which can result in an
    instant kernel crash or, potentially, memory corruption.
    The mainlined patch uses cb->start callback to make sure
    xfrm_policy_walk instance is initialized first. However, such callbacks were
    only introduced by mainline commit fc9e50f5a5a4 ("netlink: add a start
    callback for starting a netlink dump"), which is not present in vzkernel
    yet. One option would be to backport that and use the original patch from
    the mainline but, in this particular case, it might be easier to just call
    xfrm_policy_walk_init() directly, like xfrm_dump_policy() does.
    Description of the original patch:
      An independent security researcher, Mohamed Ghannam, has reported
      this vulnerability to Beyond Security's SecuriTeam Secure Disclosure
      The xfrm_dump_policy_done function expects xfrm_dump_policy to
      have been called at least once or it will crash.  This can be
      triggered if a dump fails because the target socket's receive
      buffer is full.
      This patch fixes it by using the cb->start mechanism to ensure that
      the initialisation is always done regardless of the buffer situation.
      Fixes: 12a169e7d8f4 ("ipsec: Put dumpers on the dump list")
