Still impossible to apply :(

Also, what about Dave's response to you?  This really can never be hit,
like other early-init tty allocations that we do not check because of
this issue, correct?

Look at the patch above, all of the whitespace is damaged.  There is no
way you took the raw email and then were able to apply that to the
kernel tree.

You can not cut/paste patches into gmail, please read the kernel
Documentation file all about email clients and how to get them to work
properly to send patches.

But it is directly related.

For most problems, yes, if you can successfully unwind and continue on
with a working system.  Will that happen here?

Hi Greg,
I switched to mutt and get rid of cut/paste.
I patched it successffully with commit 1fb3b526df3bd7647e7854915ae6b22299408baf.

I hope that the format is not broken any more.
As for whether the patch should be applied, it is totally your call.

Yes, that worked!  Now, can you resend it in a proper format that I can
apply it in?  (with changelog text, signed-off-by, etc.) as described in
Documentation/SubmittingPatches, I will be glad to review it after the
5.2-rc1 release happens.

thanks,

Subject: [PATCH] vt: Fix a missing-check bug in drivers/tty/vt/vt.c file of Linux 5.0.14

Hi,
I found this missing-check bug in drivers/tty/vt/vt.c when I was examining the source code. 

In function con_init(), the pointer variable vc_cons[currcons].d, vc and vc->vc_screenbuf is allocated a memory space via kzalloc(). 
And they are used in the following codes. 

However, when there is a memory allocation error, kzalloc can  be failed. 
Thus null pointer (vc_cons[currcons].d, vc and vc->vc_screenbuf) dereference may happen. 
And it will cause the kernel to crash. Therefore, we should check return value and handle an error.

And this patch works in 5.1.1.

Thank you!

Kind regards
Gen

Better, but no need for this to be in the body, just send it like any
other patch on the mailing list.

That doesn't need to be in the changelog text.

What about the other memory that was allocated?  You never free that.

Same here, you are now leaking memory.

Did you test this patch out with a kmalloc function that can fail?  If
not, please try to do so.

Hi, Greg
1. I re-examined the source code.
For vc_cons[currcons].d and vc allocation fail, we may need to free
vc->vc_screenbuf from the previous loop. So kfree(vc->vc_screenbuf) 
need to be added to err_vc;
As for vc->vc_screenbuf allocation fail, I don't think there is other
memory need to be freed. Because in function con_init, there's no other 
allocation operations except this two kzalloc functions. And in
err_vc_screenbuf, vc_cons[currcons].d and vc is freed in the patch.

2. I tried to test this patch with a compiled kernel in QEMU but 
failed. Testing this is out of my skills. So is there any other ways
to test this patch?
Thanks
Gen

You have to unwind the loop and free and uninitialize all of the other
things you just created as well.

qemu should work just fine, I don't know what else to suggest.  Run it
on "real hardware" with a kmalloc function modified to fail this
allocation?

good luck!

Hi Greg,
I don't think we need to unwind the loop. The loop condition 
MIN_NR_CONSOLES is defined as 1 in include/uapi/linux/vt.h. In this
situation, should we free other memory except vc_cons[currcons].d, vc
and vc->vc_screenbuf?
Thanks
Gen
