    mm, oom_reaper: gather each vma to prevent leaking TLB entry · 687cb088
    Wang Nan authored
    tlb_gather_mmu(&tlb, mm, 0, -1) means gathering the whole virtual memory
    space.  In this case, tlb->fullmm is true.  Some archs like arm64
    doesn't flush TLB when tlb->fullmm is true:
      commit 5a7862e8 ("arm64: tlbflush: avoid flushing when fullmm == 1").
    Which causes leaking of tlb entries.
    Will clarifies his patch:
     "Basically, we tag each address space with an ASID (PCID on x86) which
      is resident in the TLB. This means we can elide TLB invalidation when
      pulling down a full mm because we won't ever assign that ASID to
      another mm without doing TLB invalidation elsewhere (which actually
      just nukes the whole TLB).
      I think that means that we could potentially not fault on a kernel
      uaccess, because we could hit in the TLB"
    There could be a window between complete_signal() sending IPI to other
    cores and all threads sharing this mm are really kicked off from cores.
    In this window, the oom reaper may calls tlb_flush_mmu_tlbonly() to
    flush TLB then frees pages.  However, due to the above problem, the TLB
    entries are not really flushed on arm64.  Other threads are possible to
    access these pages through TLB entries.  Moreover, a copy_to_user() can
    also write to these pages without generating page fault, causes
    use-after-free bugs.
    This patch gathers each vma instead of gathering full vm space.  In this
    case tlb->fullmm is not true.  The behavior of oom reaper become similar
    to munmapping before do_exit, which should be safe for all archs.
