Subject[PATCH 3.18 08/24] jbd2: fix use after free in kjournald2()
Date
3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Sahitya Tummala <stummala@codeaurora.org>

commit dbfcef6b0f4012c57bc0b6e0e660d5ed12a5eaed upstream.

Below is the synchronization issue between unmount and kjournald2
contexts, which results into use after free issue in kjournald2().
Fix this issue by using journal->j_state_lock to synchronize the
wait_event() done in journal_kill_thread() and the wake_up() done
in kjournald2().

TASK 1:
umount cmd:
|--jbd2_journal_destroy() {
|--journal_kill_thread() {
write_lock(&journal->j_state_lock);
journal->j_flags |= JBD2_UNMOUNT;
...
write_unlock(&journal->j_state_lock);
wake_up(&journal->j_wait_commit); TASK 2 wakes up here:
kjournald2() {
...
checks JBD2_UNMOUNT flag and calls goto end-loop;
...
end_loop:
write_unlock(&journal->j_state_lock);
journal->j_task = NULL; --> If this thread gets
pre-empted here, then TASK 1 wait_event will
exit even before this thread is completely
done.
wait_event(journal->j_wait_done_commit, journal->j_task == NULL);
...
write_lock(&journal->j_state_lock);
write_unlock(&journal->j_state_lock);
}
|--kfree(journal);
}
}
wake_up(&journal->j_wait_done_commit); --> this step
now results into use after free issue.
}
