Thanks for the patch. Works for me. Test ran fine without any problems.

This shouldn't help as the caller, proc_keys_show(), is holding the RCU read
lock across the call.  The end of the function reads:

		if (key->type->describe)
			key->type->describe(key, m);
		seq_putc(m, '\n');

		rcu_read_unlock();
		return 0;
	}

and the documentation says "This method will be called with the RCU read lock
held".

I suspect the actual bugfix is this bit:

> +	if (!rka)

Ah, no.  It's entirely reasonable for an API to specify that one of its
methods will be called with one or more locks held - and that the method must
be aware of this and may make use of this.

There is API documentation in Documentation/security/keys/core.rst.  If you
look at about line 1538 onwards:

  *  ``void (*describe)(const struct key *key, struct seq_file *p);``

     This method is optional. It is called during /proc/keys reading to
     summarise a key's description and payload in text form.

     This method will be called with the RCU read lock held. rcu_dereference()
     should be used to read the payload pointer if the payload is to be
     accessed. key->datalen cannot be trusted to stay consistent with the
     contents of the payload.

     The description will not change, though the key's state may.

     It is not safe to sleep in this method; the RCU read lock is held by the
     caller.

Hi Hillf,

Would you like to me to put you down as the author of this patch?  If so, I'll
need a Signed-off-by from you.

    keys: Fix missing null pointer check in request_key_auth_describe()
    
    If a request_key authentication token key gets revoked, there's a window in
    which request_key_auth_describe() can see it with a NULL payload - but it
    makes no check for this and something like the following oops may occur:

    Fix this by checking for a NULL pointer when describing such a key.
    
    Also make the read routine check for a NULL pointer to be on the safe side.

These CVE tests from LTP were recently added to the automated regression test bucket that
I run against upstream. I can’t tell if this is a regression or a new problem.
