Subject[PATCH 5.10 16/20] perf: Break deadlock involving exec_update_mutex
Date
From: peterz@infradead.org <peterz@infradead.org>

[ Upstream commit 78af4dc949daaa37b3fcd5f348f373085b4e858f ]

Syzbot reported a lock inversion involving perf. The sore point being
perf holding exec_update_mutex() for a very long time, specifically
across a whole bunch of filesystem ops in pmu::event_init() (uprobes)
and anon_inode_getfile().

This then inverts against procfs code trying to take
exec_update_mutex.

Move the permission checks later, such that we need to hold the mutex
over less code.
