Subject: [PATCH bpf 0/2] bpf: fix a verifier issue when assigning 32bit reg states to 64bit ones
Date: Thu, 28 May 2020 09:50:43 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20200528165043.1568623-1-yhs@fb.com> (raw)

Commit 3f50f132d840 ("bpf: Verifier, do explicit ALU32 bounds tracking")
added 32bit register states to verifier for explicit ALU32 bounds
tracking. When assigning 32bit register states to 64bit register states,
if 32bit register is a constant value of 0, the 64bit register smax_val
will get U32_MAX(0xffffFFFF). Such an inprecise information may impact
downward verification. Patch #1 has detailed explanation of the program
and how to fix it. Patch #2 provides a verifier test to cover the change.

  bpf: fix a verifier issue when assigning 32bit reg states to 64bit
  tools/bpf: add a verifier test for assigning 32bit reg states to 64bit
