Subject[PATCH 4.19 64/91] x86/tls: Fix possible spectre-v1 in do_get_thread_area()
Date
From: Dianzhang Chen <dianzhangchen0@gmail.com>

commit 993773d11d45c90cb1c6481c2638c3d9f092ea5b upstream.

The index to access the threads tls array is controlled by userspace
via syscall: sys_ptrace(), hence leading to a potential exploitation
of the Spectre variant 1 vulnerability.

The index can be controlled from:
ptrace -> arch_ptrace -> do_get_thread_area.

Fix this by sanitizing the user supplied index before using it to access
the p->thread.tls_array.
