Subject[PATCH v2 2/4] x86/signal/64: Fix SS if needed when delivering a 64-bit signal
Date
Signals are always delivered to 64-bit tasks with CS set to a long
mode segment. In long mode, SS doesn't matter, as long as it's a
present writable segment.

If SS starts out invalid (this can happen if the signal was caused
by an IRET fault or was delivered on the way out of set_thread_area
or modify_ldt), then IRET to the signal handler can fail, eventually
killing the task.

The straightforward fix would be to simply reset SS when delivering
a signal. That breaks DOSEMU, though: 64-bit builds of DOSEMU rely
on SS being set to the faulting SS when signals are delivered.

As a compromise, this patch leaves SS alone so long as it's valid.

The net effect should be that the behavior of successfully delivered
signals is unchanged. Some signals that would previously have
failed to be delivered will now be delivered successfully.

This has no effect for x32 or 32-bit tasks: their signal handlers
were already called with SS == __USER_DS.

(On Xen, there's a slight hole: if a task sets SS to a writable
*kernel* data segment, then we will fail to identify it as invalid
and we'll still kill the task. If anyone cares, this could be fixed
with a new paravirt hook.)
