[PATCH 4.7 04/69] crypto: skcipher - Fix blkcipher walk OOM crash

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Wed Sep 28 2016 - 05:30:13 EST

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


From: Herbert Xu <herbert@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

commit acdb04d0b36769b3e05990c488dc74d8b7ac8060 upstream.

When we need to allocate a temporary blkcipher_walk_next and it
fails, the code is supposed to take the slow path of processing
the data block by block. However, due to an unrelated change
we instead end up dereferencing the NULL pointer.

This patch fixes it by moving the unrelated bsize setting out
of the way so that we enter the slow path as inteded.

Fixes: 7607bd8ff03b ("[CRYPTO] blkcipher: Added blkcipher_walk_virt_block")
