Johan Hovold - March 7, 2012, 4:01 p.m.
Do not close protocol driver until device has been unregistered.

This fixes a race between tty_close and hci_dev_open which can result in
a NULL-pointer dereference.

The line discipline closes the protocol driver while we may still have
hci_dev_open sleeping on the req_lock mutex resulting in a NULL-pointer
dereference when lock is acquired and hci_init_req called.

Bug is 100% reproducible using hciattach and a disconnected serial port:

0. # hciattach -n ttyO1 any noflow

1. hci_dev_open called from hci_power_on grabs req lock
2. hci_init_req executes but device fails to initialise (times out
   eventually)
3. hci_dev_open is called from hci_sock_ioctl and sleeps on req lock
4. hci_uart_tty_close detaches protocol driver and cancels init req
5. hci_dev_open (1) releases req lock
6. hci_dev_open (3) grabs req lock, calls hci_init_req, which triggers oops
   when request is prepared in hci_uart_send_frame

what kernel version is this against? Our changes in bluetooth-next fixed
some of the destruct handling.

Also hci_unregister_dev should be calling the destruct handler and thus
your change is now accessing hu but it got freed already.

This is against the latest rc as it needs to be fixed in 3.3, but I
missed a dependency to bluetooth-next as you point out below.

You're right, my patch depends on 010666a126fc ("Bluetooth: Make
hci-destruct callback optional") and 797fe796c4 ("Bluetooth: uart-ldisc:
Fix memory leak and remove destruct cb") from bluetooth-next. 

But since the latter one fixes a memory leak it should have been marked
for stable as well as pushed to Linus for 3.3, right?

Thanks,
Johan

we need to look into this and propose patches for -stable. Is your
problem still present with bluetooth-next or not?

I can confirm this. hci_uart_set_proto() opens the proto before it
registers the hci device. Hence, we should also unregister the hci
device before closing the proto. I also looked whether this introduces
other race conditions but no proto-callback can be called here as they
are all protected by the tty-layer which synchronizes all
tty-callbacks. Therefore, I think this is the correct fix.

We can apply this to stable even without the "destruct"-fixes from me
as hu->proto->$cb$() doesn't care whether hdev is valid or not. I
don't think the destruct-fixes are important enough to send them to
stable.

Unfortunately hu is is not valid once hci_unregister returns as it will
call the destruct callback. So my patch depends on changing this
behaviour first. (I could also store a pointer to the protocol before
calling unregister in my patch.)

Secondly, I must disagree with you regarding whether the memory leak you
found is critical enough to be added to the stable trees. We're leaking
kernel memory in a deterministic and easily triggered way which could be
exploited by a malicious user.

Are you planning on sending a patch to stable-ML or should I do so? How about
my proposal in the other mail? Could you include this fix when resending this?

This needs to go in through the bluetooth/networking trees (or their
maintainers at least) so that it gets in to 3.3, otherwise stable will
not pick it up for earlier trees.

I'll post a revised series which includes the minimal fix to the memory
leak so that all three patches can go to Linus and hopefully make it in
before 3.3 is out. 

Sounds good?

Thanks,
Johan
