Subject[PATCH 4.14 154/161] KVM: arm64: Ensure params is initialised when looking up sys register
From: Will Deacon <>

commit 1ce74e96c2407df2b5867e5d45a70aacb8923c14 upstream.

Commit 4b927b94d5df ("KVM: arm/arm64: vgic: Introduce find_reg_by_id()")
introduced 'find_reg_by_id()', which looks up a system register only if
the 'id' index parameter identifies a valid system register. As part of
the patch, existing callers of 'find_reg()' were ported over to the new
interface, but this breaks 'index_to_sys_reg_desc()' in the case that the
initial lookup in the vCPU target table fails because we will then call
into 'find_reg()' for the system register table with an uninitialised
'param' as the key to the lookup.

GCC 10 is bright enough to spot this (amongst a tonne of false positives,
but hey!):

| arch/arm64/kvm/sys_regs.c: In function ‘index_to_sys_reg_desc.part.0.isra’:
| arch/arm64/kvm/sys_regs.c:983:33: warning: ‘params.Op2’ may be used uninitialized in this function [-Wmaybe-uninitialized]
| 983 | (u32)(x)->CRn, (u32)(x)->CRm, (u32)(x)->Op2);
| [...]

Revert the hunk of 4b927b94d5df which breaks 'index_to_sys_reg_desc()' so
that the old behaviour of checking the index upfront is restored.
