[PATCH 4.16 50/72] net: atm: Fix potential Spectre v1

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Mon May 14 2018 - 02:59:57 EST

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


From: Gustavo A. R. Silva <gustavo@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

commit acf784bd0ce257fe43da7ca266f7a10b837479d2 upstream.

ioc_data.dev_num can be controlled by user-space, hence leading to
a potential exploitation of the Spectre variant 1 vulnerability.

This issue was detected with the help of Smatch:
net/atm/lec.c:702 lec_vcc_attach() warn: potential spectre issue

Fix this by sanitizing ioc_data.dev_num before using it to index
dev_lec. Also, notice that there is another instance in which array
dev_lec is being indexed using ioc_data.dev_num at line 705:

Notice that given that speculation windows are large, the policy is
to kill the speculation on the first load and not worry if it can be
completed with a dependent load/store [1].
