3.16.7-ckt9 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Daniel Borkmann <dborkman at redhat.com>

commit 7913ecf69e24bd7575e0d0325eda3b43c8cfa749 upstream.

In cls_bpf_modify_existing(), we read out the number of filter blocks,
do some sanity checks, allocate a block on that size, and copy over the
BPF instruction blob from user space, then pass everything through the
classic BPF checker prior to installation of the classifier.

We should reject mismatches here, there are 2 scenarios: the number of
filter blocks could be smaller than the provided instruction blob, so
we do a partial copy of the BPF program, and thus the instructions will
either be rejected from the verifier or a valid BPF program will be run;
in the other case, we'll end up copying more than we're supposed to,
and most likely the trailing garbage will be rejected by the verifier
as well (i.e. we need to fit instruction pattern, ret {A,K} needs to be
last instruction, load/stores must be correct, etc); in case not, we
would leak memory when dumping back instruction patterns. The code should
have only used nla_len() as Dave noted to avoid this from the beginning.
Anyway, lets fix it by rejecting such load attempts.
