[PATCH] x86: Fix x32 System V message queue syscalls

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


POSIX specifies that the first field of the supplied msgp, namely mtype,
is a long, not a __kernel_long_t, and it's a user-defined struct due to
the variable-length mtext field so we can't even bend the spec and make
it a __kernel_long_t even if we wanted to. Thus we must use the compat
syscalls on x32 to avoid buffer overreads and overflows in msgsnd and
msgrcv respectively.

Due to erroneously including the first 4 bytes of mtext in the mtype
this would previously also cause non-zero msgtyp arguments for msgrcv to
search for the wrong messages, and if sharing message queues between x32
and non-x32 (i386 or x86_64) processes this would previously cause mtext
to "move" and, depending on the direction and ABI combination, lose the
first 4 bytes.
