[PATCH 4.4 15/88] ipv4: Fix potential Spectre v1 vulnerability

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


From: "Gustavo A. R. Silva" <gustavo@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit 5648451e30a0d13d11796574919a359025d52cce ]

vr.vifi is indirectly controlled by user-space, hence leading to
a potential exploitation of the Spectre variant 1 vulnerability.

This issue was detected with the help of Smatch:

net/ipv4/ipmr.c:1616 ipmr_ioctl() warn: potential spectre issue 'mrt->vif_table' [r] (local cap)
net/ipv4/ipmr.c:1690 ipmr_compat_ioctl() warn: potential spectre issue 'mrt->vif_table' [r] (local cap)

Fix this by sanitizing vr.vifi before using it to index mrt->vif_table'

Notice that given that speculation windows are large, the policy is
to kill the speculation on the first load and not worry if it can be
completed with a dependent load/store [1].
