To bring that thread back, with apologies for having it fall through
the cracks back last autumn:

compat_statfs64 "overflow checks" are completely bogus. Some relevant
* all struct compat_statfs64 instances (all 3 of them) have
identical field sizes. So any ifdefs on sizeof of anything in them
are nonsense to start with.
* most of the fields have the same size as their struct kstatfs
counterparts, with the following exceptions - f_type, f_bsize, f_frsize,
f_namelen and f_flags are u32 in compat_statfs64 and long in kstatfs.
Anything other than those fields should not be getting any overflow
checks for obvious reasons - in particular this
/* f_files and f_ffree may be -1; it's okay
* to stuff that into 32 bits */
if (kbuf->f_files != 0xffffffffffffffffULL
&& (kbuf->f_files & 0xffffffff00000000ULL))
return -EOVERFLOW;
if (kbuf->f_ffree != 0xffffffffffffffffULL
&& (kbuf->f_ffree & 0xffffffff00000000ULL))
return -EOVERFLOW;
is garbage, blindly copied from handling of compat_statfs where f_files is
* anyone who seriously suggests that some fs might want to report
f_namelen greater than 4Gb is welcome to bludgeon themselves with GNU Hurd
manuals, repeating the mantras about avoiding arbitrary limits until they
get enlightened, go join Hurd development or succeed in bashing out
whatever they had between their ears. Either way, they won't be pestering
us again.
* f_type is an opaque magic value; if it doesn't fit into 32 bits,
such filesystem can't be used on 32bit host. Bug.
* f_flags is generated right there in fs/statfs.c and the value is
currently limited to 13 bits.

That leaves us with f_bsize and f_frsize (the latter defaulting to the former).
Hugetlbfs can put greater than 4Gb values in there, for really huge pages.
And that's the only thing worth checking in there.

So the whole put_compat_statfs64() thing should be
static int put_compat_statfs64(struct compat_statfs64 __user *ubuf, struct kstatfs *kbuf)
struct compat_statfs64 buf;

if ((kbuf->f_bsize | kbuf->f_frsize) & 0xffffffff00000000ULL)
return -EOVERFLOW;

memset(&buf, 0, sizeof(struct compat_statfs64));
buf.f_type = kbuf->f_type;
buf.f_bsize = kbuf->f_bsize;
buf.f_blocks = kbuf->f_blocks;
buf.f_bfree = kbuf->f_bfree;
buf.f_bavail = kbuf->f_bavail;
buf.f_files = kbuf->f_files;
buf.f_ffree = kbuf->f_ffree;
buf.f_namelen = kbuf->f_namelen;
buf.f_fsid.val[0] = kbuf->f_fsid.val[0];
buf.f_fsid.val[1] = kbuf->f_fsid.val[1];
buf.f_frsize = kbuf->f_frsize;
buf.f_flags = kbuf->f_flags;
if (copy_to_user(ubuf, &buf, sizeof(struct compat_statfs64)))
return -EFAULT;
return 0;
and that's it for compat_statfs64 bug reported by Sergey.

I'm somewhat tempted to get rid of those 'long' in struct kstatfs,
turning f_bsize and f_frsize into u64, with f_type, f_namelen and f_flags
becoming u32 and f_spare going to hell (not a single filesystem stores
anything in f_spare and e.g. mips zeroes those on the way to userland in
*native* statfs(2) anyway). We'd lose the "fast" case of do_statfs64()
and do_statfs_native(), but frankly, it's not a great loss. Doing e.g.

struct kstatfs {
u32 f_type;
u32 f_namelen; // moved up here
u64 f_bsize;
u64 f_blocks;
u64 f_bfree;
u64 f_bavail;
u64 f_files;
u64 f_ffree;
__kernel_fsid_t f_fsid;
u64 f_frsize;
u32 f_flags;


#define STATFS_COPYOUT(type) \
static int put##type(struct kstatfs *st, struct type __user *p) \
{ \
struct type buf; \
memset(&buf, 0, sizeof(buf)); \
buf.f_type = st->f_type; \
if (!FIT_IN(st->f_bsize, buf.f_bsize)) \
return -EOVERFLOW; \
buf.f_bsize = st->f_bsize; \
if (!FIT_IN(st->f_blocks, buf.f_blocks)) \
return -EOVERFLOW; \
buf.f_blocks = st->f_blocks; \
if (!FIT_IN(st->f_bfree, buf.f_bfree)) \
return -EOVERFLOW; \
buf.f_bfree = st->f_bfree; \
if (!FIT_IN(st->f_bavail, buf.f_bavail)) \
return -EOVERFLOW; \
buf.f_bavail = st->f_bavail; \
if (!FIT_IN(st->f_files, buf.f_files) && st->f_files != -1) \
return -EOVERFLOW; \
buf.f_files = st->f_files; \
if (!FIT_IN(st->f_ffree, buf.f_ffree) && st->f_ffree != -1) \
return -EOVERFLOW; \
buf.f_ffree = st->f_ffree; \
buf.f_fsid = st->f_fsid; \
buf.f_namelen = st->f_namelen; \
if (!FIT_IN(st->f_frsize, buf.f_frsize)) \
return -EOVERFLOW; \
buf.f_frsize = st->f_frsize; \
buf.f_flags = st->f_flags; \
if (copy_to_user(p, &buf, sizeof(buf))) \
return -EFAULT; \
return 0; \


providing all the copyout helpers should be reasonably sane, IMO.

As for the convoluted macros Sergey has proposed... Not without a very
good evidence that they win enough performance to be worth the complexity.

Comments? Again, my apologies for losing that thread back then - I've just
found it while doing (unrelated) grep through the old mailboxen...
