Subject[PATCH 4.4 01/63] ACPI: APEI / ERST: Fix missing error handling in erst_reader()
Date
4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Takashi Iwai <tiwai@suse.de>

commit bb82e0b4a7e96494f0c1004ce50cec3d7b5fb3d1 upstream.

The commit f6f828513290 ("pstore: pass allocated memory region back to
caller") changed the check of the return value from erst_read() in
erst_reader() in the following way:

if (len == -ENOENT)
goto skip;
- else if (len < 0) {
- rc = -1;
+ else if (len < sizeof(*rcd)) {
+ rc = -EIO;
goto out;

This introduced another bug: since the comparison with sizeof() is
cast to unsigned, a negative len value doesn't hit any longer.
As a result, when an error is returned from erst_read(), the code
falls through, and it may eventually lead to some weird thing like
memory corruption.

This patch adds the negative error value check more explicitly for
addressing the issue.

Fixes: f6f828513290 (pstore: pass allocated memory region back to caller)
