Subject[PATCH 5.1 102/138] x86/ptrace: Fix possible spectre-v1 in ptrace_get_debugreg()
Date
From: Dianzhang Chen <dianzhangchen0@gmail.com>

commit 31a2fbb390fee4231281b939e1979e810f945415 upstream.

The index to access the threads ptrace_bps 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 -> ptrace_get_debugreg.

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