Subject[PATCH 18/18] userns: prevent bounds-check bypass via speculative execution
From
Date
Static analysis reports that 'pos' may be a user controlled value that
is used as a data dependency determining which extent to return out of
'map'. In order to avoid potential leaks of kernel memory values, block
speculative execution of the instruction stream that could issue further
reads based on an invalid speculative result from 'm_start()'.

Based on an original patch by Elena Reshetova.
