The idx in do_get_thread_area() is controlled by userspace via syscall: ptrace(defined in kernel/ptrace.c), hence leading to a potential exploitation of the Spectre variant 1 vulnerability.
The idx can be controlled from: ptrace -> arch_ptrace -> do_get_thread_area.

Fix this by sanitizing idx before using it to index p->thread.tls_array.

This is broken in case of idx == -1 because index is not reevaluated after
idx is copied from u_info. You have to calculate index _AFTER_ that.

What about defining the array size and using it here and in the sanity
check above?

Please get rid of the line break. The line now fits into 80 char.

Thanks,
