Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 4.9 25/28] kernel/sysctl.c: fix out-of-bounds access when setting file-max
Date
From: Will Deacon <will.deacon@arm.com>

[ Upstream commit 9002b21465fa4d829edfc94a5a441005cffaa972 ]

Commit 32a5ad9c2285 ("sysctl: handle overflow for file-max") hooked up
min/max values for the file-max sysctl parameter via the .extra1 and
.extra2 fields in the corresponding struct ctl_table entry.

Unfortunately, the minimum value points at the global 'zero' variable,
which is an int. This results in a KASAN splat when accessed as a long
by proc_doulongvec_minmax on 64-bit architectures:

Fix the splat by introducing a unsigned long 'zero_ul' and using that
instead.
