[PATCH AUTOSEL 4.4 09/33] uprobes: Fix handle_swbp() vs. unregister() + register() race once more

From: Andrea Parri <andrea.parri@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit 09d3f015d1e1b4fee7e9bbdcf54201d239393391 ]


  142b18ddc8143 ("uprobes: Fix handle_swbp() vs unregister() + register() race")

added the UPROBE_COPY_INSN flag, and corresponding smp_wmb() and smp_rmb()
memory barriers, to ensure that handle_swbp() uses fully-initialized
uprobes only.

However, the smp_rmb() is mis-placed: this barrier should be placed
after handle_swbp() has tested for the flag, thus guaranteeing that
(program-order) subsequent loads from the uprobe can see the initial
stores performed by prepare_uprobe().

Move the smp_rmb() accordingly.  Also amend the comments associated
to the two memory barriers to indicate their actual locations.
