KVM: s390: Fix prefix register checking in arch/s390/kvm/sigp.c
This patch corrects the checking of the new address for the prefix register. On s390, the prefix register is used to address the cpu's lowcore (address 0...8k). This check is supposed to verify that the memory is readable and present. copy_from_guest is a helper function, that can be used to read from guest memory. It applies prefixing, adds the start address of the guest memory in user, and then calls copy_from_user. Previous code was obviously broken for two reasons: - prefixing should not be applied here. The current prefix register is going to be updated soon, and the address we're looking for will be 0..8k after we've updated the register - we're adding the guest origin (gmsor) twice: once in subject code and once in copy_from_guest With kuli, we did not hit this problem because (a) we were lucky with previous prefix register content, and (b) our guest memory was mmaped very low into user address space.
