Subject: [patch 04/13] mm/debug_vm_pgtable: fix alignment for pmd/pud_advanced_tests()
Date: Fri, 04 Jun 2021 20:01:18 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210605030118.fd0d-oaQo%akpm@linux-foundation.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210604200040.d8d0406caf195525620c0f3d@linux-foundation.org>

From: Gerald Schaefer <gerald.schaefer@linux.ibm.com>
Subject: mm/debug_vm_pgtable: fix alignment for pmd/pud_advanced_tests()

In pmd/pud_advanced_tests(), the vaddr is aligned up to the next pmd/pud
entry, and so it does not match the given pmdp/pudp and (aligned down) pfn
any more.

For s390, this results in memory corruption, because the IDTE instruction
used e.g. in xxx_get_and_clear() will take the vaddr for some calculations,
in combination with the given pmdp. It will then end up with a wrong table
origin, ending on ...ff8, and some of those wrongly set low-order bits will
also select a wrong pagetable level for the index addition. IDTE could
therefore invalidate (or 0x20) something outside of the page tables,
depending on the wrongly picked index, which in turn depends on the random
vaddr.

As result, we sometimes see "BUG task_struct (Not tainted): Padding
overwritten" on s390, where one 0x5a padding value got overwritten with
0x7a.

Fix this by aligning down, similar to how the pmd/pud_aligned pfns are
calculated.
