Subject: [PATCH v5 1/2] tracing: fix bad use of igrab in trace_uprobe.c
Date: Mon, 23 Apr 2018 10:21:34 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20180423172135.4050588-1-songliubraving@fb.com> (raw)

As Miklos reported and suggested:

  This pattern repeats two times in trace_uprobe.c and in
  kernel/events/core.c as well:

      ret = kern_path(filename, LOOKUP_FOLLOW, &path);
      if (ret)
          goto fail_address_parse;

      inode = igrab(d_inode(path.dentry));
      path_put(&path);

  And it's wrong.  You can only hold a reference to the inode if you
  have an active ref to the superblock as well (which is normally
  through path.mnt) or holding s_umount.

  This way unmounting the containing filesystem while the tracepoint is
  active will give you the "VFS: Busy inodes after unmount..." message
  and a crash when the inode is finally put.

  Solution: store path instead of inode.

This patch fixes two instances in trace_uprobe.c. struct path is added to
struct trace_uprobe to keep the inode and containing mount point
referenced.

Fixes: f3f096cfedf8 ("tracing: Provide trace events interface for uprobes")
Fixes: 33ea4b24277b ("perf/core: Implement the 'perf_uprobe' PMU")
