From: Oleg Nesterov <oleg@redhat.com>

commit 8b4d801b2b123b6c09742f861fe44a8527b84d47 upstream.

trinity fuzzer triggered WARN_ONCE("Can't find any breakpoint
slot") in arch_install_hw_breakpoint() but the problem is not

The problem is, task_bp_pinned(cpu) checks "cpu == iter->cpu"
but this doesn't account the "all cpus" events with iter->cpu <

This means that, say, register_user_hw_breakpoint(tsk) can
happily create the arbitrary number > HBP_NUM of breakpoints
which can not be activated. toggle_bp_task_slot() is equally
wrong by the same reason and nr_task_bp_pinned[] can have
negative entries.

Simple test:

	# perl -e 'sleep 1 while 1' &
	# perf record -e mem:0x10,mem:0x10,mem:0x10,mem:0x10,mem:0x10 -p `pidof perl`

Before this patch this triggers the same problem/WARN_ON(),
after the patch it correctly fails with -ENOSPC.
