Subject[PATCH v2] relay: handle alloc_percpu returning NULL in relay_open
Date
alloc_percpu() may return NULL, which means chan->buf may be set to
NULL. In that case, when we do *per_cpu_ptr(chan->buf, ...), we
dereference an invalid pointer:

Check if alloc_percpu returns NULL.

This was found by syzkaller both on x86 and powerpc, and the reproducer
it found on powerpc is capable of hitting the issue as an unprivileged
user.

v2: drop the NOWARN.

There's a syz reproducer on the powerpc syzbot that eventually hits
the bug, but it can take up to an hour or so before it keels over on a
kernel with all the syzkaller debugging on, and even longer on a
production kernel. I have been able to reproduce it once on a stock
Ubuntu 5.0 ppc64le kernel.

CVE-2019-19462 has been assigned. While only the process doing the syscall
gets killed, it gets killed while holding the relay_channels_mutex,
so it blocks all future relay activity.
