mm/fork: fix overflow in vma length when copying mmap on clone
Siddhesh Poyarekar [Tue, 29 May 2012 22:06:22 +0000 (15:06 -0700)]
commit 7edc8b0ac16cbaed7cb4ea4c6b95ce98d2997e84 upstream.

The vma length in dup_mmap is calculated and stored in a unsigned int,
which is insufficient and hence overflows for very large maps (beyond
16TB). The following program demonstrates this:

#include <stdio.h>
#include <unistd.h>
#include <sys/mman.h>

#define GIG 1024 * 1024 * 1024L
#define EXTENT 16393

int main(void)
{
        int i, r;
        void *m;
        char buf[1024];

        for (i = 0; i < EXTENT; i++) {
                m = mmap(NULL, (size_t) 1 * 1024 * 1024 * 1024L,
                         PROT_READ | PROT_WRITE, MAP_PRIVATE | MAP_ANONYMOUS, 0, 0);

                if (m == (void *)-1)
                        printf("MMAP Failed: %d\n", m);
                else
                        printf("%d : MMAP returned %p\n", i, m);

                r = fork();

                if (r == 0) {
                        printf("%d: successed\n", i);
                        return 0;
                } else if (r < 0)
                        printf("FORK Failed: %d\n", r);
                else if (r > 0)
                        wait(NULL);
        }
        return 0;
}

Increase the storage size of the result to unsigned long, which is
sufficient for storing the difference between addresses.
