Subject[PATCH 4.9 09/28] mm: memcg: fix use after free in mem_cgroup_iter()
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Jing Xia <jing.xia.mail@gmail.com>

commit 9f15bde671355c351cf20d9f879004b234353100 upstream.

It was reported that a kernel crash happened in mem_cgroup_iter(), which
can be triggered if the legacy cgroup-v1 non-hierarchical mode is used.

Unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address 6b6b6b6b6b6b8f
......
Call trace:
mem_cgroup_iter+0x2e0/0x6d4
shrink_zone+0x8c/0x324
balance_pgdat+0x450/0x640
kswapd+0x130/0x4b8
kthread+0xe8/0xfc
ret_from_fork+0x10/0x20

mem_cgroup_iter():
......
if (css_tryget(css)) <-- crash here
break;
......

The crashing reason is that mem_cgroup_iter() uses the memcg object whose
pointer is stored in iter->position, which has been freed before and
filled with POISON_FREE(0x6b).

And the root cause of the use-after-free issue is that
invalidate_reclaim_iterators() fails to reset the value of iter->position
to NULL when the css of the memcg is released in non- hierarchical mode.
