Subject: [PATCH] percpu_counter: fix a data race at vm_committed_as
Date: Fri, 21 Feb 2020 11:32:04 -0500
Message-ID: <1582302724-2804-1-git-send-email-cai@lca.pw> (raw)

"vm_committed_as.count" could be accessed concurrently as reported by
KCSAN,

 BUG: KCSAN: data-race in __vm_enough_memory / percpu_counter_add_batch

 write to 0xffffffff9451c538 of 8 bytes by task 65879 on cpu 35:
  percpu_counter_add_batch+0x83/0xd0
  percpu_counter_add_batch at lib/percpu_counter.c:91
  __vm_enough_memory+0xb9/0x260
  dup_mm+0x3a4/0x8f0
  copy_process+0x2458/0x3240
  _do_fork+0xaa/0x9f0
  __do_sys_clone+0x125/0x160
  __x64_sys_clone+0x70/0x90
  do_syscall_64+0x91/0xb05
  entry_SYSCALL_64_after_hwframe+0x49/0xbe

 read to 0xffffffff9451c538 of 8 bytes by task 66773 on cpu 19:
  __vm_enough_memory+0x199/0x260
  percpu_counter_read_positive at include/linux/percpu_counter.h:81
  (inlined by) __vm_enough_memory at mm/util.c:839
  mmap_region+0x1b2/0xa10
  do_mmap+0x45c/0x700
  vm_mmap_pgoff+0xc0/0x130
  ksys_mmap_pgoff+0x6e/0x300
  __x64_sys_mmap+0x33/0x40
  do_syscall_64+0x91/0xb05
  entry_SYSCALL_64_after_hwframe+0x49/0xbe

The read is outside percpu_counter::lock critical section which results
in a data race. Fix it by adding a READ_ONCE() in
percpu_counter_read_positive() which could also service as the existing
compiler memory barrier.
