Subject[PATCH v6 10/13] vfs, fdtable: prevent bounds-check bypass via speculative execution
From
Date
'fd' is a user controlled value that is used as a data dependency to
read from the 'fdt->fd' array. In order to avoid potential leaks of
kernel memory values, block speculative execution of the instruction
stream that could issue reads based on an invalid 'file *' returned from
__fcheck_files.
