Subject: [PATCH] tracing: Fix race in perf_trace_buf initialization
commit 6b1340cc00edeadd52ebd8a45171f38c8de2a387 upstream.
A race condition exists while initialiazing perf_trace_buf from
perf_trace_init() and perf_kprobe_init().
CPU0 CPU1
perf_trace_init()
mutex_lock(&event_mutex)
perf_trace_event_init()
perf_trace_event_reg()
total_ref_count == 0
buf = alloc_percpu()
perf_trace_buf[i] = buf
tp_event->class->reg() //fails perf_kprobe_init()
goto fail perf_trace_event_init()
perf_trace_event_reg()
fail:
total_ref_count == 0
total_ref_count == 0
buf = alloc_percpu()
perf_trace_buf[i] = buf
tp_event->class->reg()
total_ref_count++
free_percpu(perf_trace_buf[i])
perf_trace_buf[i] = NULL
Any subsequent call to perf_trace_event_reg() will observe total_ref_count > 0,
causing the perf_trace_buf to be always NULL. This can result in perf_trace_buf
getting accessed from perf_trace_buf_alloc() without being initialized. Acquiring
event_mutex in perf_kprobe_init() before calling perf_trace_event_init() should
fix this race.
The race caused the following bug:
