Below is a patch to address CVE-2021-4002 [1] that I created to backport
to 4.9. The stable kernels of 4.14 and prior ones do not have unified
TLB flushing code, and I managed to mess up the arch code a couple of
times.

Now that the CVE is public, I would appreciate your review of this
patch. I send 4.9 for review - the other ones (4.14 and prior) are
pretty similar.

Subject: [kernel v4.9 ] hugetlbfs: flush TLBs correctly after
 huge_pmd_unshare

When __unmap_hugepage_range() calls to huge_pmd_unshare() succeed, a TLB
flush is missing. This TLB flush must be performed before releasing the
i_mmap_rwsem, in order to prevent an unshared PMDs page from being
released and reused before the TLB flush took place.

Arguably, a comprehensive solution would use mmu_gather interface to
batch the TLB flushes and the PMDs page release, however it is not an
easy solution: (1) try_to_unmap_one() and try_to_migrate_one() also call
huge_pmd_unshare() and they cannot use the mmu_gather interface; and (2)
deferring the release of the page reference for the PMDs page until
after i_mmap_rwsem is dropeed can confuse huge_pmd_unshare() into
thinking PMDs are shared when they are not.

Fix __unmap_hugepage_range() by adding the missing TLB flush, and
forcing a flush when unshare is successful.

Fixes: 24669e58477e ("hugetlb: use mmu_gather instead of a temporary linked list for accumulating pages)" # 3.6

I do not quite see the rationale for patching um

It supports only standard size pages. You should not be able to map a huge page there (and hugetlbfs).

I have "non-standard page size" somewhere towards the end of my queue, but it keeps falling through - not enough spare time to work on it.

Brgds,

A.
