Subject[PATCH 3.2 27/70] xen/pciback: Do not install an IRQ handler for MSI interrupts.
3.2.76-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Konrad Rzeszutek Wilk <konrad.wilk@oracle.com>

commit a396f3a210c3a61e94d6b87ec05a75d0be2a60d0 upstream.

Otherwise an guest can subvert the generic MSI code to trigger
an BUG_ON condition during MSI interrupt freeing:

for (i = 0; i < entry->nvec_used; i++)
BUG_ON(irq_has_action(entry->irq + i));

Xen PCI backed installs an IRQ handler (request_irq) for
the dev->irq whenever the guest writes PCI_COMMAND_MEMORY
(or PCI_COMMAND_IO) to the PCI_COMMAND register. This is
done in case the device has legacy interrupts the GSI line
is shared by the backend devices.

To subvert the backend the guest needs to make the backend
to change the dev->irq from the GSI to the MSI interrupt line,
make the backend allocate an interrupt handler, and then command
the backend to free the MSI interrupt and hit the BUG_ON.

Since the backend only calls 'request_irq' when the guest
writes to the PCI_COMMAND register the guest needs to call
XEN_PCI_OP_enable_msi before any other operation. This will
cause the generic MSI code to setup an MSI entry and
populate dev->irq with the new PIRQ value.

Then the guest can write to PCI_COMMAND PCI_COMMAND_MEMORY
and cause the backend to setup an IRQ handler for dev->irq
(which instead of the GSI value has the MSI pirq). See
'xen_pcibk_control_isr'.

Then the guest disables the MSI: XEN_PCI_OP_disable_msi
which ends up triggering the BUG_ON condition in 'free_msi_irqs'
as there is an IRQ handler for the entry->irq (dev->irq).

Note that this cannot be done using MSI-X as the generic
code does not over-write dev->irq with the MSI-X PIRQ values.

The patch inhibits setting up the IRQ handler if MSI or
MSI-X (for symmetry reasons) code had been called successfully.

P.S.
Xen PCIBack when it sets up the device for the guest consumption
ends up writting 0 to the PCI_COMMAND (see xen_pcibk_reset_device).
XSA-120 addendum patch removed that - however when upstreaming said
addendum we found that it caused issues with qemu upstream. That
has now been fixed in qemu upstream.

This is part of XSA-157
