Subject[PATCH 3.18 15/25] x86/module: Detect and skip invalid relocations
Date
3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Josh Poimboeuf <jpoimboe@redhat.com>

commit eda9cec4c9a12208a6f69fbe68f72a6311d50032 upstream.

There have been some cases where external tooling (e.g., kpatch-build)
creates a corrupt relocation which targets the wrong address. This is a
silent failure which can corrupt memory in unexpected places.

On x86, the bytes of data being overwritten by relocations are always
initialized to zero beforehand. Use that knowledge to add sanity checks
to detect such cases before they corrupt memory.

[ Restructured the messages, as it's unclear whether the relocation or the target is corrupted. ]
