Subject[PATCH 4.19 094/103] bpf: fix check_map_access smin_value test when pointer contains offset
4.19-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


[ commit b7137c4eab85c1cf3d46acdde90ce1163b28c873 upstream ]

In check_map_access() we probe actual bounds through __check_map_access()
with offset of reg->smin_value + off for lower bound and offset of
reg->umax_value + off for the upper bound. However, even though the
reg->smin_value could have a negative value, the final result of the
sum with off could be positive when pointer arithmetic with known and
unknown scalars is combined. In this case we reject the program with
an error such as "R<x> min value is negative, either use unsigned index
or do a if (index >=0) check." even though the access itself would be
fine. Therefore extend the check to probe whether the actual resulting
reg->smin_value + off is less than zero.
