Subject: [PATCH] coredump: fix crash when umh is disabled
Date: Thu, 16 Apr 2020 16:28:59 +0000
Message-ID: <20200416162859.26518-1-mcgrof@kernel.org> (raw)

From: Luis Chamberlain <mcgrof@kernel.org>

Commit 64e90a8acb859 ("Introduce STATIC_USERMODEHELPER to mediate
call_usermodehelper()") added the optiont to disable all
call_usermodehelper() calls by setting STATIC_USERMODEHELPER_PATH to
an empty string. When this is done, and crashdump is triggered, it
will crash on null pointer dereference, since we make assumptions
over what call_usermodehelper_exec() did.

This has been reported by Sergey when one triggers a a coredump
with the following configuration:

```
CONFIG_STATIC_USERMODEHELPER=y
CONFIG_STATIC_USERMODEHELPER_PATH=""
kernel.core_pattern = |/usr/lib/systemd/systemd-coredump %P %u %g %s %t %c %h %e
```

The way disabling the umh was designed was that call_usermodehelper_exec()
would just return early, without an error. But coredump assumes
certain variables are set up for us when this happens, and calls
ile_start_write(cprm.file) with a NULL file.
