Subject[PATCH 4.9 026/148] ALSA: pcm: prevent UAF in snd_pcm_info
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Robb Glasser <rglasser@google.com>

commit 362bca57f5d78220f8b5907b875961af9436e229 upstream.

When the device descriptor is closed, the `substream->runtime` pointer
is freed. But another thread may be in the ioctl handler, case
SNDRV_CTL_IOCTL_PCM_INFO. This case calls snd_pcm_info_user() which
calls snd_pcm_info() which accesses the now freed `substream->runtime`.

Note: this fixes CVE-2017-0861
