Subject[PATCH] net/9p: avoid -ERESTARTSYS leak to userspace
From
Date
If it was interrupted by a signal, the 9p client may need to send some
more requests to the server for cleanup before returning to userspace.

To avoid such a last minute request to be interrupted right away, the
client memorizes if a signal is pending, clear TIF_SIGPENDING, handle
the request and call recalc_sigpending() before returning.

Unfortunately, if the transmission of this cleanup request fails for any
reason, the transport returns an error and the client propagates it right
away, without calling recalc_sigpending().

This ends up with -ERESTARTSYS from the initially interrupted request
crawling up to syscall exit, with TIF_SIGPENDING cleared by the cleanup
request. The specific signal handling code, which is responsible for
converting -ERESTARTSYS to -EINTR is not called, and userspace receives
the confusing errno value:

open: Unknown error 512 (512)

This is really hard to hit in real life. I discovered the issue while
working on hot-unplug of a virtio-9p-pci device with an instrumented
QEMU allowing to control request completion.

Both p9_client_zc_rpc() and p9_client_rpc() functions have this buggy
error path actually. Their code flow is a bit obscure and the best
thing to do would probably be a full rewrite: to really ensure this
situation of clearing TIF_SIGPENDING and returning -ERESTARTSYS can
never happen.

But given the general lack of interest for the 9p code, I won't risk
breaking more things. So this patch simply fix the buggy paths in both
functions with a trivial label+goto.

Thanks to Laurent Dufour for his help and suggestions on how to find
the root cause and how to fix it.
