Subject[PATCH 3.18 004/124] x86/vdso: Plug race between mapping and ELF header setup
Date
3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de>

commit 6fdc6dd90272ce7e75d744f71535cfbd8d77da81 upstream.

The vsyscall32 sysctl can racy against a concurrent fork when it switches
from disabled to enabled:

arch_setup_additional_pages()
if (vdso32_enabled)
--> No mapping
sysctl.vsysscall32()
--> vdso32_enabled = true
create_elf_tables()
ARCH_DLINFO_IA32
if (vdso32_enabled) {
--> Add VDSO entry with NULL pointer

Make ARCH_DLINFO_IA32 check whether the VDSO mapping has been set up for
the newly forked process or not.
