[RFC][PATCH] usb: f_fs: Avoid crash due to out-of-scope stack ptr access

From: John Stultz
Date: Tue Feb 05 2019 - 13:24:47 EST

Since the 5.0 merge window opened, I've been seeing frequent
crashes on suspend and reboot with the trace:

[ 36.911170] Unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address ffffff801153d660

[ 36.950747] ret_from_fork+0x10/0x1c

I isolated this down to in ffs_epfile_io():

Where the completion done is setup on the stack:

Then later we setup a request and queue it, and wait for it:
if (unlikely(wait_for_completion_interruptible(&done))) {
* To avoid race condition with ffs_epfile_io_complete,
* dequeue the request first then check
* status. usb_ep_dequeue API should guarantee no race
* condition with req->complete callback.
usb_ep_dequeue(ep->ep, req);
interrupted = ep->status < 0;

The problem is, that we end up being interrupted, dequeue the
request, and exit.

But then the irq triggers and we try calling complete() on the
context pointer which points to now random stack space, which
results in the panic.

Alan Stern pointed out there is a bug here, in that the snippet
above "assumes that usb_ep_dequeue() waits until the request has
been completed." And that:


Is needed right after the usb_ep_dequeue().

Thus this patch implements that change. With it I no longer see
the crashes on suspend or reboot.

This issue seems to have been uncovered by behavioral changes in
the dwc3 driver in commit fec9095bdef4e ("usb: dwc3: gadget:
remove wait_end_transfer").
