Subject[PATCH 2/2] mm/hmm: hmm_range_fault() infinite loop
Date
Normally, callers to handle_mm_fault() are supposed to check the
vma->vm_flags first. hmm_range_fault() checks for VM_READ but doesn't
check for VM_WRITE if the caller requests a page to be faulted in
with write permission (via the hmm_range.pfns[] value).
If the vma is write protected, this can result in an infinite loop:
hmm_range_fault()
walk_page_range()
...
hmm_vma_walk_hole()
hmm_vma_walk_hole_()
hmm_vma_do_fault()
handle_mm_fault(FAULT_FLAG_WRITE)
/* returns VM_FAULT_WRITE */
/* returns -EBUSY */
/* returns -EBUSY */
/* returns -EBUSY */
/* loops on -EBUSY and range->valid */
Prevent this by checking for vma->vm_flags & VM_WRITE before calling
handle_mm_fault().
