x86/fpu: Disable bottom halves while loading FPU registers
commit 68239654acafe6aad5a3c1dc7237e60accfebc03 upstream. The sequence fpu->initialized = 1; /* step A */ preempt_disable(); /* step B */ fpu__restore(fpu); preempt_enable(); in __fpu__restore_sig() is racy in regard to a context switch. For 32bit frames, __fpu__restore_sig() prepares the FPU state within fpu->state. To ensure that a context switch (switch_fpu_prepare() in particular) does not modify fpu->state it uses fpu__drop() which sets fpu->initialized to 0. After fpu->initialized is cleared, the CPU's FPU state is not saved to fpu->state during a context switch. The new state is loaded via fpu__restore(). It gets loaded into fpu->state from userland and ensured it is sane. fpu->initialized is then set to 1 in order to avoid fpu__initialize() doing anything (overwrite the new state) which is part of fpu__restore(). A context switch between step A and B above would save CPU's current FPU registers to fpu->state and overwrite the newly prepared state. This looks like a tiny race window but the Kernel Test Robot reported this back in 2016 while we had lazy FPU support. Borislav Petkov made the link between that report and another patch that has been posted. Since the removal of the lazy FPU support, this race goes unnoticed because the warning has been removed. Disable bottom halves around the restore sequence to avoid the race. BH need to be disabled because BH is allowed to run (even with preemption disabled) and might invoke kernel_fpu_begin() by doing IPsec.
