[PATCH v2 0/1] virtio-pci: Fix the crash that the vector was used after released

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


During the booting process of the Vyatta image, the behavior of the
called function in qemu is as follows:

1. vhost_net_stop() was triggered by guest image . This will call the function
virtio_pci_set_guest_notifiers() with assgin= false, and
virtio_pci_set_guest_notifiers() will release the irqfd for vector 0

2. virtio_reset() was called -->set configure vector to VIRTIO_NO_VECTOR

3.vhost_net_start() was called (at this time, the configure vector is
still VIRTIO_NO_VECTOR) and call virtio_pci_set_guest_notifiers() with
assgin= true, so the irqfd for vector 0 is still not "init" during this process

4. The system continues to boot,set the vector back to 0, and msix_fire_vector_notifier() was triggered
 unmask the vector 0 and then met the crash
[msix_fire_vector_notifier] 112 called vector 0 is_masked 1
[msix_fire_vector_notifier] 112 called vector 0 is_masked 0

To fix this, we need to call the function "kvm_virtio_pci_vector_use_one()"
when the vector changes back from VIRTIO_NO_VECTOR.

The reason that we don't need to call kvm_virtio_pci_vector_release_one while the vector changes to
VIRTIO_NO_VECTOR is this function will called in vhost_net_stop(),
So this step will not lost during this process.

Change from V1
1.add the check for if using irqfd
2.remove the check for bool recovery, irqfd's user is enough to check status
