Subject[PATCH 4.14 62/71] x86/microcode: Fix again accessing initrd after having been freed
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Borislav Petkov <bp@suse.de>

commit 1d080f096fe33f031d26e19b3ef0146f66b8b0f1 upstream.

Commit 24c2503255d3 ("x86/microcode: Do not access the initrd after it has
been freed") fixed attempts to access initrd from the microcode loader
after it has been freed. However, a similar KASAN warning was reported
(stack trace edited):

smpboot: Booting Node 0 Processor 1 APIC 0x11

BUG: KASAN: use-after-free in find_cpio_data+0x9b5/0xa50

After some investigation, it turned out that a merge was done using the
wrong side to resolve, leading to picking up the previous state, before
the 24c2503255d3 fix. Therefore the Fixes tag below contains a merge
commit.

Revert the mismerge by catching the save_microcode_in_initrd_amd()
retval and thus letting the function exit with the last return statement
so that initrd_gone can be set to true.

Fixes: f26483eaedec ("Merge branch 'x86/urgent' into x86/microcode, to resolve conflicts")
