Subject[PATCH 3.18 16/46] perf/core: Fix concurrent sys_perf_event_open() vs. move_group race
Date
3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Peter Zijlstra <peterz@infradead.org>

commit 321027c1fe77f892f4ea07846aeae08cefbbb290 upstream.

Di Shen reported a race between two concurrent sys_perf_event_open()
calls where both try and move the same pre-existing software group
into a hardware context.

The problem is exactly that described in commit:

f63a8daa5812 ("perf: Fix event->ctx locking")

... where, while we wait for a ctx->mutex acquisition, the event->ctx
relation can have changed under us.

That very same commit failed to recognise sys_perf_event_context() as an
external access vector to the events and thereby didn't apply the
established locking rules correctly.

So while one sys_perf_event_open() call is stuck waiting on
mutex_lock_double(), the other (which owns said locks) moves the group
about. So by the time the former sys_perf_event_open() acquires the
locks, the context we've acquired is stale (and possibly dead).

Apply the established locking rules as per perf_event_ctx_lock_nested()
to the mutex_lock_double() for the 'move_group' case. This obviously means
we need to validate state after we acquire the locks.

[bwh: Backported to 3.16:
- Use ACCESS_ONCE() instead of READ_ONCE()
- Test perf_event::group_flags instead of group_caps
- Add the err_locked cleanup block, which we didn't need before
- Adjust context]
