Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 5.6 38/50] Fix use after free in get_tree_bdev()
Date: Thu,  7 May 2020 10:27:14 -0400	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20200507142726.25751-38-sashal@kernel.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200507142726.25751-1-sashal@kernel.org>

From: David Howells <dhowells@redhat.com>

[ Upstream commit dd7bc8158b413e0b580c491e8bd18cb91057c7c2 ]

Commit 6fcf0c72e4b9, a fix to get_tree_bdev() put a missing blkdev_put() in
the wrong place, before a warnf() that displays the bdev under
consideration rather after it.

This results in a silent lockup in printk("%pg") called via warnf() from
get_tree_bdev() under some circumstances when there's a race with the
blockdev being frozen.  This can be caused by xfstests/tests/generic/085 in
combination with Lukas Czerner's ext4 mount API conversion patchset.  It
looks like it ought to occur with other users of get_tree_bdev() such as
XFS, but apparently doesn't.

Fix this by switching the order of the lines.

Fixes: 6fcf0c72e4b9 ("vfs: add missing blkdev_put() in get_tree_bdev()")
