Subject[PATCH 4.18 018/168] mac80211_hwsim: Fix possible Spectre-v1 for hwsim_world_regdom_custom
Date
4.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Jinbum Park <jinb.park7@gmail.com>

[ Upstream commit 3a2af7cccbbaf2362db9053a946a6084e12bfa73 ]

User controls @idx which to be used as index of hwsim_world_regdom_custom.
So, It can be exploited via Spectre-like attack. (speculative execution)

This kind of attack leaks address of hwsim_world_regdom_custom,
It leads an attacker to bypass security mechanism such as KASLR.

So sanitize @idx before using it to prevent attack.

I leveraged strategy [1] to find and exploit this gadget.
