[PATCH 4.4 111/163] [media] videobuf2-v4l2: Verify planes array in buffer dequeueing

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Mon May 02 2016 - 21:37:01 EST

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


From: Sakari Ailus <sakari.ailus@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

commit 2c1f6951a8a82e6de0d82b1158b5e493fc6c54ab upstream.

When a buffer is being dequeued using VIDIOC_DQBUF IOCTL, the exact buffer
which will be dequeued is not known until the buffer has been removed from
the queue. The number of planes is specific to a buffer, not to the queue.

This does lead to the situation where multi-plane buffers may be requested
and queued with n planes, but VIDIOC_DQBUF IOCTL may be passed an argument
struct with fewer planes.

__fill_v4l2_buffer() however uses the number of planes from the dequeued
videobuf2 buffer, overwriting kernel memory (the m.planes array allocated
in video_usercopy() in v4l2-ioctl.c) if the user provided fewer
planes than the dequeued buffer had. Oops!
