jffs2: Fix memory corruption in jffs2_read_inode_range()
In 2.6.23 kernel, commit a32ea1e1f925399e0d81ca3f7394a44a6dafa12c ("Fix read/truncate race") fixed a race in the generic code, and as a side effect, now do_generic_file_read() can ask us to readpage() past the i_size. This seems to be correctly handled by the block routines (e.g. block_read_full_page() fills the page with zeroes in case if somebody is trying to read past the last inode's block). JFFS2 doesn't handle this; it assumes that it won't be asked to read pages which don't exist -- and thus that there will be at least _one_ valid 'frag' on the page it's being asked to read. It will fill any holes with the following memset: memset(buf, 0, min(end, frag->ofs + frag->size) - offset); When the 'closest smaller match' returned by jffs2_lookup_node_frag() is actually on a previous page and ends before 'offset', that results in: memset(buf, 0, <huge unsigned negative>); Hopefully, in most cases the corruption is fatal, and quickly causing random oopses, like this: root@ ./testcases/kernel/fs/ftest/ftest01 Unable to handle kernel paging request for data at address 0x00000008 Faulting instruction address: 0xc01cd980 Oops: Kernel access of bad area, sig: 11 [#1] [...] NIP [c01cd980] rb_insert_color+0x38/0x184 LR [c0043978] enqueue_hrtimer+0x88/0xc4 Call Trace: [c6c63b60] [c004f9a8] tick_sched_timer+0xa0/0xe4 (unreliable) [c6c63b80] [c0043978] enqueue_hrtimer+0x88/0xc4 [c6c63b90] [c0043a48] __run_hrtimer+0x94/0xbc [c6c63bb0] [c0044628] hrtimer_interrupt+0x140/0x2b8 [c6c63c10] [c000f8e8] timer_interrupt+0x13c/0x254 [c6c63c30] [c001352c] ret_from_except+0x0/0x14 --- Exception: 901 at memset+0x38/0x5c LR = jffs2_read_inode_range+0x144/0x17c [c6c63cf0] [00000000] (null) (unreliable) This patch fixes the issue, plus fixes all LTP tests on NAND/UBI with JFFS2 filesystem that were failing since 2.6.23 (seems like the bug above also broke the truncation).
