Subject[PATCH 5.3 108/135] x86/fpu: Dont cache access to fpu_fpregs_owner_ctx
Date
From: Sebastian Andrzej Siewior <bigeasy@linutronix.de>

commit 59c4bd853abcea95eccc167a7d7fd5f1a5f47b98 upstream.

The state/owner of the FPU is saved to fpu_fpregs_owner_ctx by pointing
to the context that is currently loaded. It never changed during the
lifetime of a task - it remained stable/constant.

After deferred FPU registers loading until return to userland was
implemented, the content of fpu_fpregs_owner_ctx may change during
preemption and must not be cached.

This went unnoticed for some time and was now noticed, in particular
since gcc 9 is caching that load in copy_fpstate_to_sigframe() and
reusing it in the retry loop:

copy_fpstate_to_sigframe()
load fpu_fpregs_owner_ctx and save on stack
fpregs_lock()
copy_fpregs_to_sigframe() /* failed */
fpregs_unlock()
*** PREEMPTION, another uses FPU, changes fpu_fpregs_owner_ctx ***

fault_in_pages_writeable() /* succeed, retry */

fpregs_lock()
__fpregs_load_activate()
fpregs_state_valid() /* uses fpu_fpregs_owner_ctx from stack */
copy_fpregs_to_sigframe() /* succeeds, random FPU content */

This is a comparison of the assembly produced by gcc 9, without vs with this
patch:

|+# 0 "" 2
|+# arch/x86/include/asm/fpu/internal.h:512: return fpu == this_cpu_read(fpu_fpregs_owner_ctx) && cpu == fpu->last_cpu;
|+#NO_APP
|+ cmpq %rax, -64(%rbp) # pfo_ret__, %sfp

Use this_cpu_read() instead this_cpu_read_stable() to avoid caching of
fpu_fpregs_owner_ctx during preemption points.

The Fixes: tag points to the commit where deferred FPU loading was
added. Since this commit, the compiler is no longer allowed to move the
load of fpu_fpregs_owner_ctx somewhere else / outside of the locked
section. A task preemption will change its value and stale content will
be observed.
