mm, uprobes: fix multiple free of ->uprobes_state.xol_area
commit 355627f518978b5167256d27492fe0b343aaf2f2 upstream. Commit 7c051267931a ("mm, fork: make dup_mmap wait for mmap_sem for write killable") made it possible to kill a forking task while it is waiting to acquire its ->mmap_sem for write, in dup_mmap(). However, it was overlooked that this introduced an new error path before the new mm_struct's ->uprobes_state.xol_area has been set to NULL after being copied from the old mm_struct by the memcpy in dup_mm(). For a task that has previously hit a uprobe tracepoint, this resulted in the 'struct xol_area' being freed multiple times if the task was killed at just the right time while forking. Fix it by setting ->uprobes_state.xol_area to NULL in mm_init() rather than in uprobe_dup_mmap(). With CONFIG_UPROBE_EVENTS=y, the bug can be reproduced by the same C program given by commit 2b7e8665b4ff ("fork: fix incorrect fput of ->exe_file causing use-after-free"), provided that a uprobe tracepoint has been set on the fork_thread() function. For example: $ gcc reproducer.c -o reproducer -lpthread $ nm reproducer | grep fork_thread 0000000000400719 t fork_thread $ echo "p $PWD/reproducer:0x719" > /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/uprobe_events $ echo 1 > /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/events/uprobes/enable $ ./reproducer Here is the use-after-free reported by KASAN: BUG: KASAN: use-after-free in uprobe_clear_state+0x1c4/0x200 Read of size 8 at addr ffff8800320a8b88 by task reproducer/198 CPU: 1 PID: 198 Comm: reproducer Not tainted 4.13.0-rc7-00015-g36fde05f3fb5 #255 Hardware name: QEMU Standard PC (i440FX + PIIX, 1996), BIOS 1.10.2-20170228_101828-anatol 04/01/2014 Call Trace: dump_stack+0xdb/0x185 print_address_description+0x7e/0x290 kasan_report+0x23b/0x350 __asan_report_load8_noabort+0x19/0x20 uprobe_clear_state+0x1c4/0x200 mmput+0xd6/0x360 do_exit+0x740/0x1670 do_group_exit+0x13f/0x380 get_signal+0x597/0x17d0 do_signal+0x99/0x1df0 exit_to_usermode_loop+0x166/0x1e0 syscall_return_slowpath+0x258/0x2c0 entry_SYSCALL_64_fastpath+0xbc/0xbe ...
