Subject[PATCH v2] kernel/kprobes: add check to avoid kprobe memory leak
Date
The function register_kretprobe is used to initialize
a struct kretprobe and allocate
a list table for kprobe instance.
However,in this function, there is a memory leak.

The test case:

static struct kretprobe rp;
struct kretprobe *rps[10]={&rp ,&rp ,&rp ,
&rp ,&rp ,&rp ,&rp ,&rp ,&rp,&rp};

static int ret_handler(struct kretprobe_instance *ri, struct pt_regs
*regs)
{
printk(KERN_DEBUG "ret_handler\n");
return 0;
}
static int entry_handler(struct kretprobe_instance *ri, struct pt_regs
*regs)
{
printk(KERN_DEBUG "entry_handler\n");
return 0;
}
static int __init kretprobe_init(void)
{
int ret;
rp.kp.addr = (kprobe_opcode_t *)kallsyms_lookup_name("do_fork");
rp.handler=ret_handler;
rp.entry_handler=entry_handler;
rp.maxactive = 1;

ret = register_kretprobes(rps,10);
if (ret < 0)
{
return -1;
}

Result:

unreferenced object 0xffff8012aea35500 (size 64):
comm "insmod", pid 31966, jiffies 4309153380 (age 111.356s)

[<ffffffffffffffff>] 0xffffffffffffffff

when there are two same struct kretprobe rp,
the INIT_HLIST_HEAD() will result in a empty list table rp->free_instances.
The memory leak will happen.
So it needs to check the list table before INIT_HLIST_HEAD().
