commit e8e56ffd9d2973398b60ece1f1bebb8d67b4d032 upstream.

Locking ppp_mutex must be done before dereferencing file->private_data,
otherwise it could be modified before ppp_unattached_ioctl() takes the
lock. This could lead ppp_unattached_ioctl() to override ->private_data,
thus leaking reference to the ppp_file previously pointed to.

v2: lock all ppp_ioctl() instead of just checking private_data in
    ppp_unattached_ioctl(), to avoid ambiguous behaviour.

Fixes: f3ff8a4d80e8 ("ppp: push BKL down into the driver")
