Subject: [PATCH v2 3/3] mm/slub: Actually fix freelist pointer vs redzoning
Date: Fri,  9 Oct 2020 12:54:11 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20201009195411.4018141-4-keescook@chromium.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20201009195411.4018141-1-keescook@chromium.org>

It turns out that SLUB redzoning ("slub_debug=Z") checks from
s->object_size rather than from s->inuse (which is normally bumped to
make room for the freelist pointer), so a cache created with an object
size less than 24 would have their freelist pointer written beyond
s->object_size, causing the redzone to corrupt the freelist pointer.
This was very visible with "slub_debug=ZF":

BUG test (Tainted: G    B            ): Right Redzone overwritten
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

INFO: 0xffff957ead1c05de-0xffff957ead1c05df @offset=1502. First byte 0x1a instead of 0xbb
INFO: Slab 0xffffef3950b47000 objects=170 used=170 fp=0x0000000000000000 flags=0x8000000000000200

Adjust the offset to stay within s->object_size.
