Subject[PATCH 4.9 206/223] hpet: Fix division by zero in hpet_time_div()
From: Kefeng Wang <>

commit 0c7d37f4d9b8446956e97b7c5e61173cdb7c8522 upstream.

The base value in do_div() called by hpet_time_div() is truncated from
unsigned long to uint32_t, resulting in a divide-by-zero exception.

UBSAN: Undefined behaviour in ../drivers/char/hpet.c:572:2

The main C reproducer autogenerated by syzkaller,

syscall(__NR_mmap, 0x20000000, 0x1000000, 3, 0x32, -1, 0);
memcpy((void*)0x20000100, "/dev/hpet\000", 10);

syscall(__NR_ioctl, r[0], 0x40086806, 0x40000000000000);

Fix it by using div64_ul().
