Subject[PATCH 4.9 020/138] dm bufio: fix integer overflow when limiting maximum cache size
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Eric Biggers <ebiggers@google.com>

commit 74d4108d9e681dbbe4a2940ed8fdff1f6868184c upstream.

The default max_cache_size_bytes for dm-bufio is meant to be the lesser
of 25% of the size of the vmalloc area and 2% of the size of lowmem.
However, on 32-bit systems the intermediate result in the expression

(VMALLOC_END - VMALLOC_START) * DM_BUFIO_VMALLOC_PERCENT / 100

overflows, causing the wrong result to be computed. For example, on a
32-bit system where the vmalloc area is 520093696 bytes, the result is
1174405 rather than the expected 130023424, which makes the maximum
cache size much too small (far less than 2% of lowmem). This causes
severe performance problems for dm-verity users on affected systems.

Fix this by using mult_frac() to correctly multiply by a percentage. Do
this for all places in dm-bufio that multiply by a percentage. Also
replace (VMALLOC_END - VMALLOC_START) with VMALLOC_TOTAL, which contrary
to the comment is now defined in include/linux/vmalloc.h.

Depends-on: 9993bc635 ("sched/x86: Fix overflow in cyc2ns_offset")
Fixes: 95d402f057f2 ("dm: add bufio")
