SubjectRe: [PATCH v7 3/6] Uprobes: Support SDT markers having reference count (semaphore)
Hi Ravi,

I was going to give up and ack this series, but it seems I noticed
a bug...

I am surprised I didn't notice this before...

So
du->mm = mm;

is fine, mm can't go away, uprobe_clear_state() does delayed_uprobe_remove(NULL,mm).

But
du->uprobe = uprobe;

doesn't look right, uprobe can go away and it can be freed, its memory can be reused.
We can't rely on remove_breakpoint(), the application can unmap the probed page/vma.
Yes we do not care about the application in this case, say, the next uprobe_mmap() can
wrongly increment the counter, we do not care although this can lead to hard-to-debug
problems. But, if nothing else, the kernel can crash if the freed memory is unmapped.
So I think put_uprobe() should do delayed_uprobe_remove(uprobe, NULL) before kfree()
and delayed_uprobe_remove() should be updated to handle the mm==NULL case.

Also. delayed_uprobe_add() should check the list and avoid duplicates. Otherwise the
trivial

for (;;)
munmap(mmap(uprobed_file));

will eat the memory until uprobe is unregistered.

vma->vm_flags & (VM_WRITE|VM_SHARED) == VM_WRITE &&

looks a bit better to me, but I won't insist.

I try to avoid the cosmetic nits, but I simply can't look at this line ;)

if (ret && !err)
err = ret;

OK, so you also added the VM_WRITE check and I agree. But then I think we
should also check VM_SHARED, just like valid_ref_ctr_vma() does?

Oleg.
