Subject[PATCH 5.4 106/388] mm/swapfile.c: swap_next should increase position index
Date
From: Vasily Averin <vvs@virtuozzo.com>

[ Upstream commit 10c8d69f314d557d94d74ec492575ae6a4f1eb1c ]

If seq_file .next fuction does not change position index, read after
some lseek can generate unexpected output.

In Aug 2018 NeilBrown noticed commit 1f4aace60b0e ("fs/seq_file.c:
simplify seq_file iteration code and interface") "Some ->next functions
do not increment *pos when they return NULL... Note that such ->next
functions are buggy and should be fixed. A simple demonstration is

dd if=/proc/swaps bs=1000 skip=1

Choose any block size larger than the size of /proc/swaps. This will
always show the whole last line of /proc/swaps"

Described problem is still actual. If you make lseek into middle of
last output line following read will output end of last line and whole
last line once again.

$ dd if=/proc/swaps bs=1 # usual output
Filename Type Size Used Priority
/dev/dm-0 partition 4194812 97536 -2

$ dd if=/proc/swaps bs=40 skip=1 # last line was generated twice
dd: /proc/swaps: cannot skip to specified offset

/dev/dm-0 partition 4194812 97536 -2
