Subject[PATCH 4.14 041/137] alarmtimer: Prevent overflow for relative nanosleep
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Thomas Gleixner <>

[ Upstream commit 5f936e19cc0ef97dbe3a56e9498922ad5ba1edef ]

Air Icy reported:

UBSAN: Undefined behaviour in kernel/time/alarmtimer.c:811:7
signed integer overflow:
1529859276030040771 + 9223372036854775807 cannot be represented in type 'long long int'
Call Trace:

alarm_timer_nsleep() uses ktime_add() to add the current time and the
relative expiry value. ktime_add() has no sanity checks so the addition
can overflow when the relative timeout is large enough.

Use ktime_add_safe() which has the necessary sanity checks in place and
limits the result to the valid range.
