Subject[PATCH 4.4 09/40] aio: fix spectre gadget in lookup_ioctx
Date
4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Jeff Moyer <jmoyer@redhat.com>

commit a538e3ff9dabcdf6c3f477a373c629213d1c3066 upstream.

Matthew pointed out that the ioctx_table is susceptible to spectre v1,
because the index can be controlled by an attacker. The below patch
should mitigate the attack for all of the aio system calls.
