Subject: [RFC PATCH v2 7/7] ext4: fix race between blkdev_releasepage() and ext4_put_super()
Date: Wed, 14 Apr 2021 21:47:37 +0800
Message-ID: <20210414134737.2366971-8-yi.zhang@huawei.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210414134737.2366971-1-yi.zhang@huawei.com>

There still exist a use after free issue when accessing the journal
structure and ext4_sb_info structure on freeing bdev buffers in
bdev_try_to_free_page(). The problem is bdev_try_to_free_page() could be
raced by ext4_put_super(), it dose freeing sb->s_fs_info and
sbi->s_journal while release page progress are still accessing them.
So it could end up trigger use-after-free or NULL pointer dereference.

drop cache                           umount filesystem
blkdev_releasepage()
 get sb
 bdev_try_to_free_page()             ext4_put_super()
                                      kfree(journal)
  if access EXT4_SB(sb)->s_journal  <-- leader to use after free
                                      sb->s_fs_info = NULL;
                                      kfree(sbi)
  if access EXT4_SB(sb)->s_journal  <-- trigger NULL pointer dereference

The above race could also happens on the error path of
ext4_fill_super(). Now the bdev_try_to_free_page() is under RCU
protection, this patch fix this race by use sb->s_usage_counter to
make bdev_try_to_free_page() safe against concurrent kill_block_super().
