    Subject[08/65] drm: Fix authentication kernel crash
    3.0-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


    From: Thomas Hellstrom <>

    commit 598781d71119827b454fd75d46f84755bca6f0c6 upstream.

    If the master tries to authenticate a client using drm_authmagic and
    that client has already closed its drm file descriptor,
    either wilfully or because it was terminated, the
    call to drm_authmagic will dereference a stale pointer into kmalloc'ed memory
    and corrupt it.

    Typically this results in a hard system hang.

    This patch fixes that problem by removing any authentication tokens
    (struct drm_magic_entry) open for a file descriptor when that file
    descriptor is closed.
