ipc,shm: fix shm_file deletion races
When IPC_RMID races with other shm operations there's potential for use-after-free of the shm object's associated file (shm_file). Here's the race before this patch: TASK 1 TASK 2 ------ ------ shm_rmid() ipc_lock_object() shmctl() shp = shm_obtain_object_check() shm_destroy() shum_unlock() fput(shp->shm_file) ipc_lock_object() shmem_lock(shp->shm_file) <OOPS> The oops is caused because shm_destroy() calls fput() after dropping the ipc_lock. fput() clears the file's f_inode, f_path.dentry, and f_path.mnt, which causes various NULL pointer references in task 2. I reliably see the oops in task 2 if with shmlock, shmu This patch fixes the races by: 1) set shm_file=NULL in shm_destroy() while holding ipc_object_lock(). 2) modify at risk operations to check shm_file while holding ipc_object_lock(). Example workloads, which each trigger oops... Workload 1: while true; do id=$(shmget 1 4096) shm_rmid $id & shmlock $id & wait done The oops stack shows accessing NULL f_inode due to racing fput: _raw_spin_lock shmem_lock SyS_shmctl Workload 2: while true; do id=$(shmget 1 4096) shmat $id 4096 & shm_rmid $id & wait done The oops stack is similar to workload 1 due to NULL f_inode: touch_atime shmem_mmap shm_mmap mmap_region do_mmap_pgoff do_shmat SyS_shmat Workload 3: while true; do id=$(shmget 1 4096) shmlock $id shm_rmid $id & shmunlock $id & wait done The oops stack shows second fput tripping on an NULL f_inode. The first fput() completed via from shm_destroy(), but a racing thread did a get_file() and queued this fput(): locks_remove_flock __fput ____fput task_work_run do_notify_resume int_signal Fixes: c2c737a ("ipc,shm: shorten critical region for shmat") Fixes: 2caacaa ("ipc,shm: shorten critical region for shmctl") Signed-off-by: Greg Thelen <firstname.lastname@example.org> Cc: Davidlohr Bueso <email@example.com> Cc: Rik van Riel <firstname.lastname@example.org> Cc: Manfred Spraul <email@example.com> Cc: <firstname.lastname@example.org> # 3.10.17+ 3.11.6+ Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <email@example.com> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <firstname.lastname@example.org>
