Subject: [PATCH] cdc-acm: rework notification_buffer resizing
Date: Sat,  1 Aug 2020 08:21:54 -0700
Message-ID: <20200801152154.20683-1-trix@redhat.com> (raw)

Clang static analysis reports this error

cdc-acm.c:409:3: warning: Use of memory after it is freed
        acm_process_notification(acm, (unsigned char *)dr);

There are three problems, the first one is that dr is not reset

The variable dr is set with

if (acm->nb_index)
	dr = (struct usb_cdc_notification *)acm->notification_buffer;

But if the notification_buffer is too small it is resized with

		if (acm->nb_size) {
			kfree(acm->notification_buffer);
			acm->nb_size = 0;
		}
		alloc_size = roundup_pow_of_two(expected_size);
		/*
		 * kmalloc ensures a valid notification_buffer after a
		 * use of kfree in case the previous allocation was too
		 * small. Final freeing is done on disconnect.
		 */
		acm->notification_buffer =
			kmalloc(alloc_size, GFP_ATOMIC);

dr should point to the new acm->notification_buffer.

The second problem is any data in the notification_buffer is lost
when the pointer is freed.  In the normal case, the current data
is accumulated in the notification_buffer here.

	memcpy(&acm->notification_buffer[acm->nb_index],
	       urb->transfer_buffer, copy_size);

When a resize happens, anything before
notification_buffer[acm->nb_index] is garbage.

The third problem is the acm->nb_index is not reset on a
resizing buffer error.

So switch resizing to using krealloc and reassign dr and
reset nb_index.
