Ah! Interesting. I didn't realize this was fast-path (I don't know the
DMA code at all). I thought it was more of a "one time setup" before
actual DMA activity started.

Regardless, is_vmalloc_addr() is extremely light (a bounds check), and is the
most important part of this as far as catching stack-based DMA attempts.
I thought virt_addr_valid() was cheap too, but I see it's much heavier on
arm64.

I just went to compare what the existing USB check does, and it happens
immediately before its call to dma_map_single(). Both checks are simple
bounds checks, so it shouldn't be an issue:

			if (is_vmalloc_addr(urb->setup_packet)) {
				WARN_ONCE(1, "setup packet is not dma capable\n");
				return -EAGAIN;
			} else if (object_is_on_stack(urb->setup_packet)) {
				WARN_ONCE(1, "setup packet is on stack\n");
				return -EAGAIN;
			}

			urb->setup_dma = dma_map_single(
					hcd->self.sysdev,
					urb->setup_packet,
					sizeof(struct usb_ctrlrequest),


In the USB case, it'll actually refuse to do the operation. Should
dma_map_single() similarly fail? I could push these checks down into
dma_map_single(), which would be a no-change on behavior for USB and
gain the checks on all other callers...
