blkcg: fix use-after-free in __blkg_release_rcu() by making blkcg_gq refcnt an atomic_t
commit a5049a8ae34950249a7ae94c385d7c5c98914412 upstream. Hello, So, this patch should do. Joe, Vivek, can one of you guys please verify that the oops goes away with this patch? Jens, the original thread can be read at http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel/1720729 The fix converts blkg->refcnt from int to atomic_t. It does some overhead but it should be minute compared to everything else which is going on and the involved cacheline bouncing, so I think it's highly unlikely to cause any noticeable difference. Also, the refcnt in question should be converted to a perpcu_ref for blk-mq anyway, so the atomic_t is likely to go away pretty soon anyway. Thanks. ------- 8< ------- __blkg_release_rcu() may be invoked after the associated request_queue is released with a RCU grace period inbetween. As such, the function and callbacks invoked from it must not dereference the associated request_queue. This is clearly indicated in the comment above the function. Unfortunately, while trying to fix a different issue, 2a4fd070ee85 ("blkcg: move bulk of blkcg_gq release operations to the RCU callback") ignored this and added [un]locking of @blkg->q->queue_lock to __blkg_release_rcu(). This of course can cause oops as the request_queue may be long gone by the time this code gets executed. general protection fault: 0000 [#1] SMP CPU: 21 PID: 30 Comm: rcuos/21 Not tainted 3.15.0 #1 Hardware name: Stratus ftServer 6400/G7LAZ, BIOS BIOS Version 6.3:57 12/25/2013 task: ffff880854021de0 ti: ffff88085403c000 task.ti: ffff88085403c000 RIP: 0010:[<ffffffff8162e9e5>] [<ffffffff8162e9e5>] _raw_spin_lock_irq+0x15/0x60 RSP: 0018:ffff88085403fdf0 EFLAGS: 00010086 RAX: 0000000000020000 RBX: 0000000000000010 RCX: 0000000000000000 RDX: 000060ef80008248 RSI: 0000000000000286 RDI: 6b6b6b6b6b6b6b6b RBP: ffff88085403fdf0 R08: 0000000000000286 R09: 0000000000009f39 R10: 0000000000020001 R11: 0000000000020001 R12: ffff88103c17a130 R13: ffff88103c17a080 R14: 0000000000000000 R15: 0000000000000000 FS: 0000000000000000(0000) GS:ffff88107fca0000(0000) knlGS:0000000000000000 CS: 0010 DS: 0000 ES: 0000 CR0: 0000000080050033 CR2: 00000000006e5ab8 CR3: 000000000193d000 CR4: 00000000000407e0 Stack: ffff88085403fe18 ffffffff812cbfc2 ffff88103c17a130 0000000000000000 ffff88103c17a130 ffff88085403fec0 ffffffff810d1d28 ffff880854021de0 ffff880854021de0 ffff88107fcaec58 ffff88085403fe80 ffff88107fcaec30 Call Trace: [<ffffffff812cbfc2>] __blkg_release_rcu+0x72/0x150 [<ffffffff810d1d28>] rcu_nocb_kthread+0x1e8/0x300 [<ffffffff81091d81>] kthread+0xe1/0x100 [<ffffffff8163813c>] ret_from_fork+0x7c/0xb0 Code: ff 47 04 48 8b 7d 08 be 00 02 00 00 e8 55 48 a4 ff 5d c3 0f 1f 00 66 66 66 66 90 55 48 89 e5 +fa 66 66 90 66 66 90 b8 00 00 02 00 <f0> 0f c1 07 89 c2 c1 ea 10 66 39 c2 75 02 5d c3 83 e2 fe 0f +b7 RIP [<ffffffff8162e9e5>] _raw_spin_lock_irq+0x15/0x60 RSP <ffff88085403fdf0> The request_queue locking was added because blkcg_gq->refcnt is an int protected with the queue lock and __blkg_release_rcu() needs to put the parent. Let's fix it by making blkcg_gq->refcnt an atomic_t and dropping queue locking in the function. Given the general heavy weight of the current request_queue and blkcg operations, this is unlikely to cause any noticeable overhead. Moreover, blkcg_gq->refcnt is likely to be converted to percpu_ref in the near future, so whatever (most likely negligible) overhead it may add is temporary.
