Subject[PATCH 4.18 155/235] evm: Dont deadlock if a crypto algorithm is unavailable
Date
4.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Matthew Garrett <mjg59@google.com>

[ Upstream commit e2861fa71641c6414831d628a1f4f793b6562580 ]

When EVM attempts to appraise a file signed with a crypto algorithm the
kernel doesn't have support for, it will cause the kernel to trigger a
module load. If the EVM policy includes appraisal of kernel modules this
will in turn call back into EVM - since EVM is holding a lock until the
crypto initialisation is complete, this triggers a deadlock. Add a
CRYPTO_NOLOAD flag and skip module loading if it's set, and add that flag
in the EVM case in order to fail gracefully with an error message
instead of deadlocking.
