[PATCH] powerpc/pseries: Fix stack corruption in htpe code

From: Laurent Dufour
Date: Thu Oct 06 2016 - 09:33:34 EST

This commit fixes a stack corruption in the pseries specific code dealing
with the huge pages.

In __pSeries_lpar_hugepage_invalidate() the buffer used to pass arguments
to the hypervisor is not large enough. This leads to a stack corruption
where a previously saved register could be corrupted leading to unexpected
result in the caller, like the following panic:

Most of the time, the bug is surfacing in a caller up in the stack from
__pSeries_lpar_hugepage_invalidate() which is quite confusing.

This bug is pending since v3.11 but was hidden if a caller of the
caller of __pSeries_lpar_hugepage_invalidate() has pushed the corruped
register (r18 in this case) in the stack and is not using it until
restoring it. GCC 6.2.0 seems to raise it more frequently.

This commit also change the definition of the parameter buffer in
pSeries_lpar_flush_hash_range() to rely on the global define
PLPAR_HCALL9_BUFSIZE (no functional change here).
