Subject[PATCH v3 1/1] xen/blkback: rework connect_ring() to avoid inconsistent xenstore 'ring-page-order' set by malicious blkfront
Date
The xenstore 'ring-page-order' is used globally for each blkback queue and
therefore should be read from xenstore only once. However, it is obtained
in read_per_ring_refs() which might be called multiple times during the
initialization of each blkback queue.

If the blkfront is malicious and the 'ring-page-order' is set in different
value by blkfront every time before blkback reads it, this may end up at
the "WARN_ON(i != (XEN_BLKIF_REQS_PER_PAGE * blkif->nr_ring_pages));" in
xen_blkif_disconnect() when frontend is destroyed.

This patch reworks connect_ring() to read xenstore 'ring-page-order' only
once.

Changed since v1:
* change the order of xenstore read in read_per_ring_refs
* use xenbus_read_unsigned() in connect_ring()

Changed since v2:
* simplify the condition check as "(err != 1 && nr_grefs > 1)"
* avoid setting err as -EINVAL to remove extra one line of code
