Subject[PATCH 4.19 139/140] mm/memory.c: fix a huge pud insertion race during faulting
Date
From: Thomas Hellstrom <thellstrom@vmware.com>

[ Upstream commit 625110b5e9dae9074d8a7e67dd07f821a053eed7 ]

A huge pud page can theoretically be faulted in racing with pmd_alloc()
in __handle_mm_fault(). That will lead to pmd_alloc() returning an
invalid pmd pointer.

Fix this by adding a pud_trans_unstable() function similar to
pmd_trans_unstable() and check whether the pud is really stable before
using the pmd pointer.

Race:
Thread 1: Thread 2: Comment
create_huge_pud() Fallback - not taken.
create_huge_pud() Taken.
pmd_alloc() Returns an invalid pointer.

This will result in user-visible huge page data corruption.

Note that this was caught during a code audit rather than a real
experienced problem. It looks to me like the only implementation that
currently creates huge pud pagetable entries is dev_dax_huge_fault()
which doesn't appear to care much about private (COW) mappings or
write-tracking which is, I believe, a prerequisite for create_huge_pud()
falling back on thread 1, but not in thread 2.
