Unfortunately, I don't have any reproducer for this issue yet.
IMPORTANT: if you fix the issue, please add the following tag to the commit:
Another case of put_user crashing.
There are 58 crashes in sock_ioctl already. Somehow there is a very
significant skew towards crashing with this "user memory without
uaccess routines" in schedule_tail and sock_ioctl of all places in the
kernel that use put_user... This looks very strange... Any ideas
what's special about these 2 locations?
I could imagine if such a crash happens after a previous stack
overflow and now task data structures are corrupted. But f_getown does
not look like a function that consumes way more than other kernel
The last crash I looked at suggested somehow put_user got re-entered
with the user protection turned back on. Either there is a path through
one of the kernel handlers where this happens or there's something
weird going on with qemu.
Is there any kind of tracking/reporting that would help to localize
it? I could re-reproduce with that code.
I'm not sure. I will have a go at debugging on qemu today just to make
sure I can reproduce here before I have to go into the office and fix
my Icicle board for real hardware tests.
I think my first plan post reproduction is to stuff some trace points
into the fault handlers to see if we can get a idea of faults being
Maybe also add a check in the fault handler to see if the fault was
in a fixable region and post an error if that happens / maybe retry
the instruction with the relevant SR_SUM flag set.
Hopefully tomorrow I can get a run on real hardware to confirm.
Would have been better if the Unmatched board I ordered last year
would turn up.
In retrospect it's obvious what's common between these 2 locations:
they both call a function inside of put_user.
BUG: unable to handle kernel access to user memory in schedule_tail
