[PATCH] xen/privcmd: allow fetching resource sizes

Posted by Roger Pau Monne 5 days, 8 hours ago
Allow issuing an IOCTL_PRIVCMD_MMAP_RESOURCE ioctl with num = 0 and
addr = 0 in order to fetch the size of a specific resource.

Add a shortcut to the default map resource path, since fetching the
size requires no address to be passed in, and thus no VMA to setup.

Fixes: 3ad0876554caf ('xen/privcmd: add IOCTL_PRIVCMD_MMAP_RESOURCE')

NB: fetching the size of a resource shouldn't trigger an hypercall
preemption, and hence I've dropped the preempt indications.

I don't think this addition is a reason to add a "Fixes:" tag. This is
clearly new functionality.

It could be argued that not allowing to query the resource size was a
shortcoming of the original implementation, but a backport request to
stable would be more appropriate than a fixes tag I think. Will drop
on next version and add a backport request if you agree.

Thanks, Roger.

I think we should not allow only one of them to be zero. If it's only kdata.num then we will end up with pfns array set to ZERO_SIZE_PTR (which is 0x10). We seem to be OK in that we are not derefencing pfns (either in kernel or in hypervisor) if number of frames is zero but IMO we shouldn't be tempting the fate.


(And if it's only kdata.addr then we will get a vma but I am not sure it will do what we want.)

Passing addr == 0 without num being 0 is already an error in Xen, and
passing num == 0 without addr being 0 is bogus and will be an error by
the time I'm finished fixing this.

FWIW, the common usecase for non-trivial examples will be:

xenforeignmem_resource_size(domid, type, id, &size);
xenforeignmem_map_resource(domid, type, id, NULL, size, ...);

which translates into:

ioctl(MAP_RESOURCE, NULL, 0) => size
mmap(NULL, size, ...) => ptr
ioctl(MAP_RESOURCE, ptr, size)

from the kernels point of view, and two hypercalls from Xen's point of
view.  The NULL's above are expected to be the common case for letting
the kernel chose the vma, but ought to be filled in by the time the
second ioctl() occurs.

See
https://lore.kernel.org/xen-devel/20200922182444.12350-1-andrew.cooper3@citrix.com/T/#u
for all the gory details.

I don't think the kernel should rely on the hypervisor to return
an error in case addr != 0 and num == 0.

The driver should return -EINVAL in that case IMO.

And additionally I think the kernel should check num to be not too
large (in the interface it is u64, while intermediate values are
stored in unsigned int), limiting it to something below INT_MAX
seems to be sensible.
