[PATCH 4.14 31/34] perf/x86/intel: Fix memory corruption

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Mon Mar 18 2019 - 05:35:38 EST

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


From: Peter Zijlstra <peterz@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>

commit ede271b059463731cbd6dffe55ffd70d7dbe8392 upstream.



cpuc->constraint_list[-1] is used, which is an obvious out-of-bound access.

In this case, simply skip the TFA constraint code, there is no event
constraint with just PMC3, therefore the code will never result in the
empty set.
