Subject[PATCH 4.14 007/186] random: fix data race on crng_node_pool
Date
From: Eric Biggers <ebiggers@google.com>

commit 5d73d1e320c3fd94ea15ba5f79301da9a8bcc7de upstream.

extract_crng() and crng_backtrack_protect() load crng_node_pool with a
plain load, which causes undefined behavior if do_numa_crng_init()
modifies it concurrently.

Fix this by using READ_ONCE(). Note: as per the previous discussion
https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20211219025139.31085-1-ebiggers@kernel.org/T/#u,
READ_ONCE() is believed to be sufficient here, and it was requested that
it be used here instead of smp_load_acquire().

Also change do_numa_crng_init() to set crng_node_pool using
cmpxchg_release() instead of mb() + cmpxchg(), as the former is
sufficient here but is more lightweight.

Fixes: 1e7f583af67b ("random: make /dev/urandom scalable for silly userspace programs")
