Subject[PATCH 4.9 049/101] printk: fix possible reuse of va_list variable
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Tetsuo Handa <penguin-kernel@I-love.SAKURA.ne.jp>

commit 988a35f8da1dec5a8cd2788054d1e717be61bf25 upstream.

I noticed that there is a possibility that printk_safe_log_store() causes
kernel oops because "args" parameter is passed to vsnprintf() again when
atomic_cmpxchg() detected that we raced. Fix this by using va_copy().
