Subject[PATCH 3.14 25/25] ARC: signal handling robustify
Date
3.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Vineet Gupta <vgupta@synopsys.com>

commit e4140819dadc3624accac8294881bca8a3cba4ed upstream.

A malicious signal handler / restorer can DOS the system by fudging the
user regs saved on stack, causing weird things such as sigreturn returning
to user mode PC but cpu state still being kernel mode....

Ensure that in sigreturn path status32 always has U bit; any other bogosity
(gargbage PC etc) will be taken care of by normal user mode exceptions mechanisms.

Reproducer signal handler:

void handle_sig(int signo, siginfo_t *info, void *context)
{
ucontext_t *uc = context;
struct user_regs_struct *regs = &(uc->uc_mcontext.regs);

regs->scratch.status32 = 0;
}

Before the fix, kernel would go off to weeds like below:
