Subject: [PATCH] nfs4: Ensure that ACL pages sent over NFS were not allocated
 from the slab (v3) CVE-2011-1090

BugLink: http://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/800775

commit e9e3d724e2145f5039b423c290ce2b2c3d8f94bc upstream.

The "bad_page()" page allocator sanity check was reported recently (call
chain as follows):

  bad_page+0x69/0x91
  free_hot_cold_page+0x81/0x144
  skb_release_data+0x5f/0x98

  cpu_idle+0x95/0xb8
  start_kernel+0x220/0x225
  _sinittext+0x22f/0x236

It occurs because an skb with a fraglist was freed from the tcp
retransmit queue when it was acked, but a page on that fraglist had
PG_Slab set (indicating it was allocated from the Slab allocator (which
means the free path above can't safely free it via put_page.

We tracked this back to an nfsv4 setacl operation, in which the nfs code
attempted to fill convert the passed in buffer to an array of pages in
__nfs4_proc_set_acl, which gets used by the skb->frags list in
xs_sendpages.  __nfs4_proc_set_acl just converts each page in the buffer
to a page struct via virt_to_page, but the vfs allocates the buffer via
kmalloc, meaning the PG_slab bit is set.  We can't create a buffer with
kmalloc and free it later in the tcp ack path with put_page, so we need
to either:

1) ensure that when we create the list of pages, no page struct has
   PG_Slab set

 or

2) not use a page list to send this data

Given that these buffers can be multiple pages and arbitrarily sized, I
think (1) is the right way to go.  I've written the below patch to
allocate a page from the buddy allocator directly and copy the data over
to it.  This ensures that we have a put_page free-able page for every
entry that winds up on an skb frag list, so it can be safely freed when
the frame is acked.  We do a put page on each entry after the
rpc_call_sync call so as to drop our own reference count to the page,
leaving only the ref count taken by tcp_sendpages.  This way the data
will be properly freed when the ack comes in

Successfully tested by myself to solve the above oops.

Note, as this is the result of a setacl operation that exceeded a page
of data, I think this amounts to a local DOS triggerable by an
uprivlidged user, so I'm CCing security on this as well.
