[PATCH 3.2 032/126] powerpc/vdso64: Use double word compare on pointers

From: Ben Hutchings

3.2.85-rc1 review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Anton Blanchard <anton@xxxxxxxxx>

commit 5045ea37377ce8cca6890d32b127ad6770e6dce5 upstream.

__kernel_get_syscall_map() and __kernel_clock_getres() use cmpli to
check if the passed in pointer is non zero. cmpli maps to a 32 bit
compare on binutils, so we ignore the top 32 bits.

A simple test case can be created by passing in a bogus pointer with
the bottom 32 bits clear. Using a clk_id that is handled by the VDSO,
then one that is handled by the kernel shows the problem:

printf("%d\n", clock_getres(CLOCK_REALTIME, (void *)0x100000000));
printf("%d\n", clock_getres(CLOCK_BOOTTIME, (void *)0x100000000));

And we get:


The bigger issue is if we pass a valid pointer with the bottom 32 bits
clear, in this case we will return success but won't write any data
to the pointer.

I stumbled across this issue because the LLVM integrated assembler
doesn't accept cmpli with 3 arguments. Fix this by converting them to
