[PATCH 4.17 034/336] mm: vmalloc: avoid racy handling of debugobjects in vunmap

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Wed Aug 01 2018 - 13:35:27 EST

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


From: Chintan Pandya <cpandya@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit f3c01d2f3ade6790db67f80fef60df84424f8964 ]

Currently, __vunmap flow is,
1) Release the VM area
2) Free the debug objects corresponding to that vm area.

This leave some race window open.
1) Release the VM area
1.5) Some other client gets the same vm area
1.6) This client allocates new debug objects on the same
vm area
2) Free the debug objects corresponding to this vm area.

Here, we actually free 'other' client's debug objects.

Fix this by freeing the debug objects first and then releasing the VM
