[PATCH 4.4 v2] x86/pti/efi: broken conversion from efi to kernel page table

In entry_64.S we have code like this:

    /* Unconditionally use kernel CR3 for do_nmi() */
    /* %rax is saved above, so OK to clobber here */
    ALTERNATIVE "jmp 2f", "movq %cr3, %rax", X86_FEATURE_KAISER
    /* If PCID enabled, NOFLUSH now and NOFLUSH on return */
    ALTERNATIVE "", "bts $63, %rax", X86_FEATURE_PCID
    pushq   %rax
    /* mask off "user" bit of pgd address and 12 PCID bits: */
    andq    $(~(X86_CR3_PCID_ASID_MASK | KAISER_SHADOW_PGD_OFFSET)), %rax
    movq    %rax, %cr3

    /* paranoidentry do_nmi, 0; without TRACE_IRQS_OFF */
    call    do_nmi

With this instruction:
    andq    $(~(X86_CR3_PCID_ASID_MASK | KAISER_SHADOW_PGD_OFFSET)), %rax

We unconditionally switch from whatever our CR3 was to kernel page table.
But, in arch/x86/platform/efi/efi_64.c We temporarily set a different page
table, that does not have the kernel page table with 0x1000 offset from it.

Look in efi_thunk() and efi_thunk_set_virtual_address_map().

So, while CR3 points to the other page table, we get an NMI interrupt,
and clear 0x1000 from CR3, resulting in a bogus CR3 if the 0x1000 bit was

The efi page table comes from realmode/rm/trampoline_64.S:


141 .bss
142 .balign PAGE_SIZE
143 GLOBAL(trampoline_pgd) .space PAGE_SIZE

Notice: alignment is PAGE_SIZE, so after applying KAISER_SHADOW_PGD_OFFSET
which equal to PAGE_SIZE, we can get a different page table.

But, even if we fix alignment, here the trampoline binary is later copied
into dynamically allocated memory in reserve_real_mode(), so we need to
fix that place as well.

Fixes: 8a43ddfb93a0 ("KAISER: Kernel Address Isolation")
