Subject: int overflow in io_getevents
Date: Mon, 7 Dec 2015 11:27:07 +0100
Message-ID: <> (raw)


While running syzkaller fuzzer on commit
31ade3b83e1821da5fbb2f11b5b3d4ab2ec39db8, I've hit the following UBSAN
warning. I think it can lead to an unexpected active wait loop, if
user-space expects such io_getevents to wait for a long duration but
instead it returns immediately, so user-space reissues the same call
again and again. Andrey suggested that read_events should validate
timeout with timespec_valid_strict before using it.

UBSAN: Undefined behaviour in include/linux/ktime.h:55:49
signed integer overflow:
1449363382000000000 + 8584381026499825158 cannot be represented in
type 'long long int'
