Subject[PATCH 3.15 27/66] IB/mlx5: add missing padding at end of struct mlx5_ib_create_srq
Date
3.15-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Yann Droneaud <ydroneaud@opteya.com>

commit 43bc889380c2ad9aa230eccc03a15cc52cf710d4 upstream.

The i386 ABI disagrees with most other ABIs regarding alignment of
data type larger than 4 bytes: on most ABIs a padding must be added at
end of the structures, while it is not required on i386.

So for most ABIs struct mlx5_ib_create_srq gets implicitly padded to be
aligned on a 8 bytes multiple, while for i386, such padding is not
added.

Tool pahole could be used to find such implicit padding:

$ pahole --anon_include \
--nested_anon_include \
--recursive \
--class_name mlx5_ib_create_srq \
drivers/infiniband/hw/mlx5/mlx5_ib.o

Then, structure layout can be compared between i386 and x86_64:

# @@ -69,7 +68,6 @@ struct mlx5_ib_create_srq {
# __u64 db_addr; /* 8 8 */
# __u32 flags; /* 16 4 */

# - /* last cacheline: 20 bytes */
# + /* size: 24, cachelines: 1, members: 3 */
# + /* padding: 4 */
# + /* last cacheline: 24 bytes */
# };

ABI disagreement will make an x86_64 kernel try to read past
the buffer provided by an i386 binary.

When boundary check will be implemented, the x86_64 kernel will
refuse to read past the i386 userspace provided buffer and the
uverb will fail.

Anyway, if the structure lay in memory on a page boundary and
next page is not mapped, ib_copy_from_udata() will fail and the
uverb will fail.

This patch makes create_srq_user() takes care of the input
data size to handle the case where no padding was provided.

This way, x86_64 kernel will be able to handle struct mlx5_ib_create_srq
as sent by unpatched and patched i386 libmlx5.
