Subject[RFC PATCH 1/1] Revert "rseq/selftests: arm: use udf instruction for RSEQ_SIG"
Date
This reverts commit 2b845d4b4acd9422bbb668989db8dc36dfc8f438.

That commit introduces build issues for programs compiled in Thumb mode.
Rather than try to be clever and emit a valid trap instruction on arm32,
which requires special care about big/little endian handling on that
architecture, just emit plain data. Data in the instruction stream is
technically expected on arm32: this is how literal pools are
implemented. Reverting to the prior behavior does exactly that.

-/*
- * RSEQ_SIG uses the udf A32 instruction with an uncommon immediate operand
- * value 0x5de3. This traps if user-space reaches this instruction by mistake,
- * and the uncommon operand ensures the kernel does not move the instruction
- * pointer to attacker-controlled code on rseq abort.
- *
- * The instruction pattern in the A32 instruction set is:
- *
- * e7f5def3 udf #24035 ; 0x5de3
- *
- * This translates to the following instruction pattern in the T16 instruction
- * set:
- *
- * little endian:
- * def3 udf #243 ; 0xf3
- * e7f5 b.n <7f5>
- *
- * pre-ARMv6 big endian code:
- * e7f5 b.n <7f5>
- * def3 udf #243 ; 0xf3
- *
- * ARMv6+ -mbig-endian generates mixed endianness code vs data: little-endian
- * code and big-endian data. Ensure the RSEQ_SIG data signature matches code
- * endianness. Prior to ARMv6, -mbig-endian generates big-endian code and data
- * (which match), so there is no need to reverse the endianness of the data
- * representation of the signature. However, the choice between BE32 and BE8
- * is done by the linker, so we cannot know whether code and data endianness
- * will be mixed before the linker is invoked.
