mm/filemap: generic_file_read_iter(): check for zero reads unconditionally
- generic_file_read_iter() gets called with a zero read length,
- the read offset is at a page boundary,
- IOCB_DIRECT is not set
- and the page in question hasn't made it into the page cache yet,
then do_generic_file_read() will trigger a readahead with a req_size hint
Since roundup_pow_of_two(0) is undefined, UBSAN reports
UBSAN: Undefined behaviour in include/linux/log2.h:63:13
shift exponent 64 is too large for 64-bit type 'long unsigned int'
CPU: 3 PID: 1017 Comm: sa1 Tainted: G L 4.5.0-next-20160318+ #14
[<ffffffff813ef61a>] ? ondemand_readahead+0x3aa/0x3d0
[<ffffffff813c73bd>] ? find_get_entry+0x2d/0x210
when get_init_ra_size() gets called from ondemand_readahead().
The net effect is that the initial readahead size is arch dependent for
requested read lengths of zero: for example, since
1UL << (sizeof(unsigned long) * 8)
evaluates to 1 on x86 while its result is 0 on ARMv7, the initial readahead
size becomes 4 on the former and 0 on the latter.
What's more, whether or not the file access timestamp is updated for zero
length reads is decided differently for the two cases of IOCB_DIRECT
being set or cleared: in the first case, generic_file_read_iter()
explicitly skips updating that timestamp while in the latter case, it is
always updated through the call to do_generic_file_read().
According to POSIX, zero length reads "do not modify the last data access
timestamp" and thus, the IOCB_DIRECT behaviour is POSIXly correct.
Let generic_file_read_iter() unconditionally check the requested read
length at its entry and return immediately with success if it is zero.
