Subject[PATCH] drm/amd/display: Clear dm_state for fast updates
This patch fixes a race condition that causes a use-after-free during
amdgpu_dm_atomic_commit_tail. This can occur when 2 non-blocking commits
are requested and the second one finishes before the first. Essentially,
this bug occurs when the following sequence of events happens:

1. Non-blocking commit #1 is requested w/ a new dm_state #1 and is
deferred to the workqueue.

2. Non-blocking commit #2 is requested w/ a new dm_state #2 and is
deferred to the workqueue.

3. Commit #2 starts before commit #1, dm_state #1 is used in the
commit_tail and commit #2 completes, freeing dm_state #1.

4. Commit #1 starts after commit #2 completes, uses the freed dm_state
1 and dereferences a freelist pointer while setting the context.

Since this bug has only been spotted with fast commits, this patch fixes
the bug by clearing the dm_state instead of using the old dc_state for
fast updates. In addition, since dm_state is only used for its dc_state
and amdgpu_dm_atomic_commit_tail will retain the dc_state if none is found,
removing the dm_state should not have any consequences in fast updates.

This use-after-free bug has existed for a while now, but only caused a
noticeable issue starting from 5.7-rc1 due to 3202fa62f ("slub: relocate
freelist pointer to middle of object") moving the freelist pointer from
dm_state->base (which was unused) to dm_state->context (which is
dereferenced).

Bugzilla: https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=207383
Fixes: bd200d190f45 ("drm/amd/display: Don't replace the dc_state for fast updates")
