Subject[PATCH 4.11 62/84] ARM64/ACPI: Fix BAD_MADT_GICC_ENTRY() macro implementation
4.11-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Lorenzo Pieralisi <>

commit cb7cf772d83d2d4e6995c5bb9e0fb59aea8f7080 upstream.

The BAD_MADT_GICC_ENTRY() macro checks if a GICC MADT entry passes
muster from an ACPI specification standpoint. Current macro detects the
MADT GICC entry length through ACPI firmware version (it changed from 76
to 80 bytes in the transition from ACPI 5.1 to ACPI 6.0 specification)
but always uses (erroneously) the ACPICA (latest) struct (ie struct
acpi_madt_generic_interrupt - that is 80-bytes long) length to check if
the current GICC entry memory record exceeds the MADT table end in
memory as defined by the MADT table header itself, which may result in
false negatives depending on the ACPI firmware version and how the MADT
entries are laid out in memory (ie on ACPI 5.1 firmware MADT GICC
entries are 76 bytes long, so by adding 80 to a GICC entry start address
in memory the resulting address may well be past the actual MADT end,
triggering a false negative).

Fix the BAD_MADT_GICC_ENTRY() macro by reshuffling the condition checks
and update them to always use the firmware version specific MADT GICC
entry length in order to carry out boundary checks.
