Subject[PATCH 3.15 26/66] IB/mlx5: add missing padding at end of struct mlx5_ib_create_cq
Date
3.15-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Yann Droneaud <ydroneaud@opteya.com>

commit a8237b32a3faab155a5dc8f886452147ce73da3e 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 ABI struct mlx5_ib_create_cq get padded to be aligned on a
8 bytes multiple, while for i386, such padding is not added.

The tool pahole can be used to find such implicit padding:

$ pahole --anon_include \
--nested_anon_include \
--recursive \
--class_name mlx5_ib_create_cq \
drivers/infiniband/hw/mlx5/mlx5_ib.o

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

# @@ -34,9 +34,8 @@ struct mlx5_ib_create_cq {
# __u64 db_addr; /* 8 8 */
# __u32 cqe_size; /* 16 4 */
#
# - /* size: 20, cachelines: 1, members: 3 */
# - /* last cacheline: 20 bytes */
# + /* size: 24, cachelines: 1, members: 3 */
# + /* padding: 4 */
# + /* last cacheline: 24 bytes */
# };

This 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, a x86_64 kernel will refuse
to read past the i386 userspace provided buffer and the uverb will
fail.

Anyway, if the structure lies in memory on a page boundary and next
page is not mapped, ib_copy_from_udata() will fail when trying to read
the 4 bytes of padding and the uverb will fail.

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

This way, x86_64 kernel will be able to handle struct
mlx5_ib_create_cq as sent by unpatched and patched i386 libmlx5.
