Subject[PATCH 5.1 027/128] crypto: chacha-generic - fix use as arm64 no-NEON fallback
Date
From: Eric Biggers <ebiggers@google.com>

commit 7aceaaef04eaaf6019ca159bc354d800559bba1d upstream.

The arm64 implementations of ChaCha and XChaCha are failing the extra
crypto self-tests following my patches to test the !may_use_simd() code
paths, which previously were untested. The problem is as follows:

When !may_use_simd(), the arm64 NEON implementations fall back to the
generic implementation, which uses the skcipher_walk API to iterate
through the src/dst scatterlists. Due to how the skcipher_walk API
works, walk.stride is set from the skcipher_alg actually being used,
which in this case is the arm64 NEON algorithm. Thus walk.stride is
5*CHACHA_BLOCK_SIZE, not CHACHA_BLOCK_SIZE.

This unnecessarily large stride shouldn't cause an actual problem.
However, the generic implementation computes round_down(nbytes,
walk.stride). round_down() assumes the round amount is a power of 2,
which 5*CHACHA_BLOCK_SIZE is not, so it gives the wrong result.

This causes the following case in skcipher_walk_done() to be hit,
causing a WARN() and failing the encryption operation:

if (WARN_ON(err)) {
/* unexpected case; didn't process all bytes */
err = -EINVAL;
goto finish;
}

Fix it by rounding down to CHACHA_BLOCK_SIZE instead of walk.stride.

(Or we could replace round_down() with rounddown(), but that would add a
slow division operation every time, which I think we should avoid.)
