Subject[PATCH 3.15 20/66] RDMA/cxgb4: Add missing padding at end of struct c4iw_create_cq_resp
Date
3.15-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Yann Droneaud <ydroneaud@opteya.com>

commit b6f04d3d21458818073a2f5af5339f958864bf71 upstream.

The i386 ABI disagrees with most other ABIs regarding alignment of
data types 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 c4iw_create_cq_resp gets implicitly 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 c4iw_create_cq_resp \
drivers/infiniband/hw/cxgb4/iw_cxgb4.o

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

# --- obj-x86_64/drivers/infiniband/hw/cxgb4/iw_cxgb4.o.pahole.txt 2014-03-28 10:55:10.990133017 +0100
# @@ -14,9 +13,8 @@ struct c4iw_create_cq_resp {
# __u32 size; /* 28 4 */
# __u32 qid_mask; /* 32 4 */
#
# - /* size: 36, cachelines: 1, members: 6 */
# - /* last cacheline: 36 bytes */
# + /* size: 40, cachelines: 1, members: 6 */
# + /* padding: 4 */
# + /* last cacheline: 40 bytes */
# };

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

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

If the structure is on a page boundary and the next page is not
mapped, ib_copy_to_udata() will fail and the uverb will fail.

This patch adds an explicit padding at end of structure
c4iw_create_cq_resp, and, like 92b0ca7cb149 ("IB/mlx5: Fix stack info
leak in mlx5_ib_alloc_ucontext()"), makes function c4iw_create_cq()
not writting this padding field to userspace. This way, x86_64 kernel
will be able to write struct c4iw_create_cq_resp as expected by
unpatched and patched i386 libcxgb4.
