signal: fix information leak in copy_siginfo_from_user32
commit 3c00cb5e68dc719f2fc73a33b1b230aadfcb1309 upstream. This function can leak kernel stack data when the user siginfo_t has a positive si_code value. The top 16 bits of si_code descibe which fields in the siginfo_t union are active, but they are treated inconsistently between copy_siginfo_from_user32, copy_siginfo_to_user32 and copy_siginfo_to_user. copy_siginfo_from_user32 is called from rt_sigqueueinfo and rt_tgsigqueueinfo in which the user has full control overthe top 16 bits of si_code. This fixes the following information leaks: x86: 8 bytes leaked when sending a signal from a 32-bit process to itself. This leak grows to 16 bytes if the process uses x32. (si_code = __SI_CHLD) x86: 100 bytes leaked when sending a signal from a 32-bit process to a 64-bit process. (si_code = -1) sparc: 4 bytes leaked when sending a signal from a 32-bit process to a 64-bit process. (si_code = any) parsic and s390 have similar bugs, but they are not vulnerable because rt_[tg]sigqueueinfo have checks that prevent sending a positive si_code to a different process. These bugs are also fixed for consistency.
