[PATCH v2] binder: fix use-after-free due to fdget() optimization




44d8047f1d87a ("binder: use standard functions to allocate fds")
exposed a pre-existing issue in the binder driver.

fdget() is used in ksys_ioctl() as a performance optimization.
One of the rules associated with fdget() is that ksys_close() must
not be called between the fdget() and the fdput(). There is a case
where this requirement is not met in the binder driver (and possibly
other drivers) which results in the reference count dropping to 0
when the device is still in use. This can result in use-after-free
or other issues.

This was observed with the following sequence of events:

Task A and task B are connected via binder; task A has /dev/binder open at
file descriptor number X. Both tasks are single-threaded.

1. task B sends a binder message with a file descriptor array
   (BINDER_TYPE_FDA) containing one file descriptor to task A
2. task A reads the binder message with the translated file
   descriptor number Y
3. task A uses dup2(X, Y) to overwrite file descriptor Y with
   the /dev/binder file
4. task A unmaps the userspace binder memory mapping; the reference
   count on task A's /dev/binder is now 2
5. task A closes file descriptor X; the reference count on task
   A's /dev/binder is now 1
6. task A forks off a child, task C, duplicating the file descriptor
   table; the reference count on task A's /dev/binder is now 2
7. task A invokes the BC_FREE_BUFFER command on file descriptor X
   to release the incoming binder message
8. fdget() in ksys_ioctl() suppresses the reference count increment,
   since the file descriptor table is not shared
9. the BC_FREE_BUFFER handler removes the file descriptor table
   entry for X and decrements the reference count of task A's
   /dev/binder file to 1
10.task C calls close(X), which drops the reference count of
   task A's /dev/binder to 0 and frees it
11.task A continues processing of the ioctl and accesses some
   property of e.g. the binder_proc => KASAN-detectable UAF

Fixed by using get_file() / fput() in binder_ioctl().
