syzbot is hitting

  WARN_ON(forw_packet->if_outgoing->soft_iface != soft_iface)

at batadv_iv_ogm_emit() [1], for forw_packet->if_outgoing->soft_iface
can remain NULL if batadv_hardif_enable_interface() failed due to e.g.
memory allocation fault injection.

Cannot apply this because following (conflicting) is already queued up in 
batadv/net:  
https://git.open-mesh.org/linux-merge.git/blobdiff/b741596468b010af2846b75f5e75a842ce344a6e..9f460ae31c4435fd022c443a6029352217a16ac1:/net/batman-adv/bat_iv_ogm.c

Please rebase your patch in case it is really needed.

And the explanation you give seems to be bogus. Or am I missing some error 
handling in batadv_hardif_enable_interface [1]?

Kind regards,

Oh, I didn't know you already applied that change, for that commit is
not yet visible from linux-next.git as of next-20210604.

I told syzbot to try https://syzkaller.appspot.com/text?tag=Patch&x=100b083fd00000
and the response ( https://syzkaller.appspot.com/text?tag=CrashLog&x=1456f0ffd00000 ) was

   batman_adv: forw_packet->if_outgoing->soft_iface=0000000000000000 forw_packet->if_incoming->soft_iface=0000000039fa85b7

indicating that if_outgoing->soft_iface was NULL, and there was a memory allocation
fault injection immediately before this result.

Since if_outgoing->soft_iface becomes non-NULL if batadv_hardif_enable_interface()
succeeds, this situation indicates that batadv_hardif_enable_interface() failure
caused forw_packet->if_outgoing->soft_iface to remain NULL.

Ok, then I misread the commit message. I've understood is as "soft_iface" 
allocation failed (which doesn't happen here anymore) in 
batadv_hardif_enable_interface. But you meant that was that hard_iface->soft_iface is 
set to the correct value, the OGM transmission is started up by batadv_iv_ogm_schedule_buff
but soft_iface is changed back immediately in batadv_hardif_enable_interface because
netdev_master_upper_dev_link failed.

Kind regards,
	Sven
