Subject[PATCH 3.17 06/47] mm: fix anon_vma_clone() error treatment
Date
3.17-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Daniel Forrest <dan.forrest@ssec.wisc.edu>

commit c4ea95d7cd08d9ffd7fa75e6c5e0332d596dd11e upstream.

Andrew Morton noticed that the error return from anon_vma_clone() was
being dropped and replaced with -ENOMEM (which is not itself a bug
because the only error return value from anon_vma_clone() is -ENOMEM).

I did an audit of callers of anon_vma_clone() and discovered an actual
bug where the error return was being lost. In __split_vma(), between
Linux 3.11 and 3.12 the code was changed so the err variable is used
before the call to anon_vma_clone() and the default initial value of
-ENOMEM is overwritten. So a failure of anon_vma_clone() will return
success since err at this point is now zero.

Below is a patch which fixes this bug and also propagates the error
return value from anon_vma_clone() in all cases.

Fixes: ef0855d334e1 ("mm: mempolicy: turn vma_set_policy() into vma_dup_policy()")
