Subject: [PATCH v5.4 and earlier] trace: Fix race in trace_open and buffer resize call
Date: Mon, 25 Jan 2021 14:21:26 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210125142126.70d6a33c@gandalf.local.home> (raw)

From: Gaurav Kohli <gkohli@codeaurora.org>

[ upstream commit bbeb97464eefc65f506084fd9f18f21653e01137 ]

Below race can come, if trace_open and resize of
cpu buffer is running parallely on different cpus
CPUX                                CPUY
				    ring_buffer_resize
				    atomic_read(&buffer->resize_disabled)
tracing_open
tracing_reset_online_cpus
ring_buffer_reset_cpu
rb_reset_cpu
				    rb_update_pages
				    remove/insert pages
resetting pointer

This race can cause data abort or some times infinite loop in
rb_remove_pages and rb_insert_pages while checking pages
for sanity.

Take buffer lock to fix this.
