Subject[PATCH 4.12 19/41] mm/cma_debug.c: fix stack corruption due to sprintf usage
Date
4.12-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Prakash Gupta <guptap@codeaurora.org>

commit da094e42848e3c36feaa3b5271e53983fd45424f upstream.

name[] in cma_debugfs_add_one() can only accommodate 16 chars including
NULL to store sprintf output. It's common for cma device name to be
larger than 15 chars. This can cause stack corrpution. If the gcc
stack protector is turned on, this can cause a panic due to stack
corruption.

Below is one example trace:

Kernel panic - not syncing: stack-protector: Kernel stack is corrupted in:
ffffff8e69a75730
Call trace:
dump_backtrace+0x0/0x2c4
show_stack+0x20/0x28
dump_stack+0xb8/0xf4
panic+0x154/0x2b0
print_tainted+0x0/0xc0
cma_debugfs_init+0x274/0x290
do_one_initcall+0x5c/0x168
kernel_init_freeable+0x1c8/0x280

Fix the short sprintf buffer in cma_debugfs_add_one() by using
scnprintf() instead of sprintf().
