[PATCH 4.16 16/72] memcg: fix per_node_info cleanup

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Mon May 14 2018 - 02:58:27 EST

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


From: Michal Hocko <mhocko@xxxxxxxx>

commit 4eaf431f6f71bbed40a4c733ffe93a7e8cedf9d9 upstream.

syzbot has triggered a NULL ptr dereference when allocation fault
injection enforces a failure and alloc_mem_cgroup_per_node_info
initializes memcg->nodeinfo only half way through.

But __mem_cgroup_free still tries to free all per-node data and
dereferences pn->lruvec_stat_cpu unconditioanlly even if the specific
per-node data hasn't been initialized.

The bug is quite unlikely to hit because small allocations do not fail
and we would need quite some numa nodes to make struct
mem_cgroup_per_node large enough to cross the costly order.
