Subject[PATCH] random: use correct memory barriers for crng_node_pool
Date
From: Eric Biggers <ebiggers@google.com>

When a CPU selects which CRNG to use, it accesses crng_node_pool without
a memory barrier. That's wrong, because crng_node_pool can be set by
another CPU concurrently. Without a memory barrier, the crng_state that
is used might not appear to be fully initialized.

There's an explicit mb() on the write side, but it's redundant with
cmpxchg() (or cmpxchg_release()) and does nothing to fix the read side.

Implement this correctly by using a cmpxchg_release() +
smp_load_acquire() pair.

Fixes: 1e7f583af67b ("random: make /dev/urandom scalable for silly userspace programs")
