Build Update for ovsrobot/ovs

Build: #2664
Status: Passed

Duration: 59 mins and 34 secs
Commit: a3f5d73 (series_182607)
Author: Ilya Maximets
Message: ovs-rcu: Avoid flushing callbacks during postponing.

ovsrcu_flush_cbset() call during ovsrcu_postpone() could cause
use after free in case the caller sets new pointer only after
postponing free for the old one:

 ------------------  ------------------  -------------------
 Thread 1            Thread 2            RCU Thread
 ------------------  ------------------  -------------------
 pointer = A

  thread->seqno = 30
  global_seqno = 31

 read pointer A
   flush cbset
                                         pop flushed_cbsets
                                           target_seqno = 31
                      thread->seqno = 31
                      global_seqno = 32

                     read pointer A
                     use pointer A

                      thread->seqno = 32
                      global_seqno = 33

                     read pointer A
 pointer = B

  thread->seqno = 33
  global_seqno = 34

                                         target_seqno exceeded
                                         by all threads
                                         call cbs to free A
                     use pointer A
                     (use after free)

Fix that by using dynamically re-allocated array without flushing
to the global flushed_cbsets until writer enters quiescent state.
