powerpc/tm: Fix restoring FP/VMX facility incorrectly on interrupts
commit a8318c13e79badb92bc6640704a64cc022a6eb97 upstream. When in userspace and MSR FP=0 the hardware FP state is unrelated to the current process. This is extended for transactions where if tbegin is run with FP=0, the hardware checkpoint FP state will also be unrelated to the current process. Due to this, we need to ensure this hardware checkpoint is updated with the correct state before we enable FP for this process. Unfortunately we get this wrong when returning to a process from a hardware interrupt. A process that starts a transaction with FP=0 can take an interrupt. When the kernel returns back to that process, we change to FP=1 but with hardware checkpoint FP state not updated. If this transaction is then rolled back, the FP registers now contain the wrong state. The process looks like this: Userspace: Kernel Start userspace with MSR FP=0 TM=1 < ----- ... tbegin bne Hardware interrupt ---- > <do_IRQ...> .... ret_from_except restore_math() /* sees FP=0 */ restore_fp() tm_active_with_fp() /* sees FP=1 (Incorrect) */ load_fp_state() FP = 0 -> 1 < ----- Return to userspace with MSR TM=1 FP=1 with junk in the FP TM checkpoint TM rollback reads FP junk When returning from the hardware exception, tm_active_with_fp() is incorrectly making restore_fp() call load_fp_state() which is setting FP=1. The fix is to remove tm_active_with_fp(). tm_active_with_fp() is attempting to handle the case where FP state has been changed inside a transaction. In this case the checkpointed and transactional FP state is different and hence we must restore the FP state (ie. we can't do lazy FP restore inside a transaction that's used FP). It's safe to remove tm_active_with_fp() as this case is handled by restore_tm_state(). restore_tm_state() detects if FP has been using inside a transaction and will set load_fp and call restore_math() to ensure the FP state (checkpoint and transaction) is restored. This is a data integrity problem for the current process as the FP registers are corrupted. It's also a security problem as the FP registers from one process may be leaked to another. Similarly for VMX. A simple testcase to replicate this will be posted to tools/testing/selftests/powerpc/tm/tm-poison.c This fixes CVE-2019-15031.
