Subject[PATCH 4.9 262/329] powerpc/perf: Fix kernel address leak via sampling registers
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Michael Ellerman <mpe@ellerman.id.au>

[ Upstream commit e1ebd0e5b9d0a10ba65e63a3514b6da8c6a5a819 ]

Current code in power_pmu_disable() does not clear the sampling
registers like Sampling Instruction Address Register (SIAR) and
Sampling Data Address Register (SDAR) after disabling the PMU. Since
these are userspace readable and could contain kernel addresses, add
code to explicitly clear the content of these registers.

Also add a "context synchronizing instruction" to enforce no further
updates to these registers as suggested by Power ISA v3.0B. From
section 9.4, on page 1108:

"If an mtspr instruction is executed that changes the value of a
Performance Monitor register other than SIAR, SDAR, and SIER, the
change is not guaranteed to have taken effect until after a
subsequent context synchronizing instruction has been executed (see
Chapter 11. "Synchronization Requirements for Context Alterations"
on page 1133)."
