[PATCH 3.16.y-ckt 050/128] MIPS: uaccess: Take EVA into account in __copy_from_user()

From: Luis Henriques

3.16.7-ckt23 -stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: James Hogan <james.hogan@xxxxxxxxxx>

commit 6f06a2c45d8d714ea3b11a360b4a7191e52acaa4 upstream.

When EVA is in use, __copy_from_user() was unconditionally using the EVA
instructions to read the user address space, however this can also be
used for kernel access. If the address isn't a valid user address it
will cause an address error or TLB exception, and if it is then user
memory may be read instead of kernel memory.

For example in the following stack trace from Linux v3.10 (changes since
then will prevent this particular one still happening) kernel_sendmsg()
set the user address limit to KERNEL_DS, and tcp_sendmsg() goes on to
use __copy_from_user() with a kernel address in KSeg0.
