Subject: [PATCH 17/27] acpi: Disable APEI error injection if the kernel is locked down
Date: Wed,  6 Mar 2019 15:59:03 -0800
Message-ID: <20190306235913.6631-18-matthewgarrett@google.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20190306235913.6631-1-matthewgarrett@google.com>

From: Linn Crosetto <linn@hpe.com>

ACPI provides an error injection mechanism, EINJ, for debugging and testing
the ACPI Platform Error Interface (APEI) and other RAS features.  If
supported by the firmware, ACPI specification 5.0 and later provide for a
way to specify a physical memory address to which to inject the error.

Injecting errors through EINJ can produce errors which to the platform are
indistinguishable from real hardware errors.  This can have undesirable
side-effects, such as causing the platform to mark hardware as needing
replacement.

While it does not provide a method to load unauthenticated privileged code,
the effect of these errors may persist across reboots and affect trust in
the underlying hardware, so disable error injection through EINJ if
the kernel is locked down.
