Subject: [PATCH v4 1/1] media: vivid: Fix wrong locking that causes race conditions on streaming stop
Date: Mon,  4 Nov 2019 01:17:19 +0300
Message-ID: <20191103221719.27118-1-alex.popov@linux.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <7ec33848-67a6-069a-132c-f8550f6e090f@linux.com>

There is the same incorrect approach to locking implemented in
vivid_stop_generating_vid_cap(), vivid_stop_generating_vid_out() and
sdr_cap_stop_streaming().

These functions are called during streaming stopping with vivid_dev.mutex
locked. And they all do the same mistake while stopping their kthreads,
which need to lock this mutex as well. See the example from
vivid_stop_generating_vid_cap():
  /* shutdown control thread */
  vivid_grab_controls(dev, false);
  mutex_unlock(&dev->mutex);
  kthread_stop(dev->kthread_vid_cap);
  dev->kthread_vid_cap = NULL;
  mutex_lock(&dev->mutex);

But when this mutex is unlocked, another vb2_fop_read() can lock it
instead of vivid_thread_vid_cap() and manipulate the buffer queue.
That causes a use-after-free access later.

To fix those issues let's:
  1. avoid unlocking the mutex in vivid_stop_generating_vid_cap(),
vivid_stop_generating_vid_out() and sdr_cap_stop_streaming();
  2. use mutex_trylock() with schedule_timeout_uninterruptible() in
the loops of the vivid kthread handlers.
