CVE-2024-26766 Detail

Description

In the Linux kernel, the following vulnerability has been resolved: IB/hfi1: Fix sdma.h tx->num_descs off-by-one error Unfortunately the commit `fd8958efe877` introduced another error causing the `descs` array to overflow. This reults in further crashes easily reproducible by `sendmsg` system call. [ 1080.836473] general protection fault, probably for non-canonical address 0x400300015528b00a: 0000 [#1] PREEMPT SMP PTI [ 1080.869326] RIP: 0010:hfi1_ipoib_build_ib_tx_headers.constprop.0+0xe1/0x2b0 [hfi1] -- [ 1080.974535] Call Trace: [ 1080.976990] <TASK> [ 1081.021929] hfi1_ipoib_send_dma_common+0x7a/0x2e0 [hfi1] [ 1081.027364] hfi1_ipoib_send_dma_list+0x62/0x270 [hfi1] [ 1081.032633] hfi1_ipoib_send+0x112/0x300 [hfi1] [ 1081.042001] ipoib_start_xmit+0x2a9/0x2d0 [ib_ipoib] [ 1081.046978] dev_hard_start_xmit+0xc4/0x210 -- [ 1081.148347] __sys_sendmsg+0x59/0xa0 crash> ipoib_txreq 0xffff9cfeba229f00 struct ipoib_txreq { txreq = { list = { next = 0xffff9cfeba229f00, prev = 0xffff9cfeba229f00 }, descp = 0xffff9cfeba229f40, coalesce_buf = 0x0, wait = 0xffff9cfea4e69a48, complete = 0xffffffffc0fe0760 <hfi1_ipoib_sdma_complete>, packet_len = 0x46d, tlen = 0x0, num_desc = 0x0, desc_limit = 0x6, next_descq_idx = 0x45c, coalesce_idx = 0x0, flags = 0x0, descs = {{ qw = {0x8024000120dffb00, 0x4} # SDMA_DESC0_FIRST_DESC_FLAG (bit 63) }, { qw = { 0x3800014231b108, 0x4} }, { qw = { 0x310000e4ee0fcf0, 0x8} }, { qw = { 0x3000012e9f8000, 0x8} }, { qw = { 0x59000dfb9d0000, 0x8} }, { qw = { 0x78000e02e40000, 0x8} }} }, sdma_hdr = 0x400300015528b000, <<< invalid pointer in the tx request structure sdma_status = 0x0, SDMA_DESC0_LAST_DESC_FLAG (bit 62) complete = 0x0, priv = 0x0, txq = 0xffff9cfea4e69880, skb = 0xffff9d099809f400 } If an SDMA send consists of exactly 6 descriptors and requires dword padding (in the 7th descriptor), the sdma_txreq descriptor array is not properly expanded and the packet will overflow into the container structure. This results in a panic when the send completion runs. The exact panic varies depending on what elements of the container structure get corrupted. The fix is to use the correct expression in _pad_sdma_tx_descs() to test the need to expand the descriptor array. With this patch the crashes are no longer reproducible and the machine is stable.
