Subject: [patch 2/2] posix-timers: Sanitize overrun handling
Date: Tue, 26 Jun 2018 15:21:32 +0200
Message-ID: <20180626132705.018623573@linutronix.de> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20180626132130.345959379@linutronix.de>

The posix timer overrun handling is broken because the forwarding functions
can return a huge number of overruns which does not fit in an int. As a
consequence timer_getoverrun(2) and siginfo::si_overrun can turn into
random number generators.

The k_clock::timer_forward() callbacks return a 64 bit value now. Make
k_itimer::ti_overrun[_last] 64bit as well, so the kernel internal
accounting is correct. 3Remove the temporary (int) casts.

Add a helper function which clamps the overrun value returned to user space
via timer_getoverrun(2) or siginfo::si_overrun limited to a positive value
between 0 and INT_MAX. INT_MAX is an indicator for user space that the
overrun value has been clamped.
