[PATCH 4.4 30/88] ALSA: rme9652: 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>

commit 0b84304ef5da92add8dc75a1b07879c5374cdb05 upstream.

info->channel 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:

sound/pci/rme9652/hdsp.c:4100 snd_hdsp_channel_info() warn: potential spectre issue 'hdsp->channel_map' [r] (local cap)

Fix this by sanitizing info->channel before using it to index hdsp->channel_map

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].

Also, notice that I refactored the code a bit in order to get rid of the
following checkpatch warning:

ERROR: do not use assignment in if condition
FILE: sound/pci/rme9652/hdsp.c:4103:
	if ((mapped_channel = hdsp->channel_map[info->channel]) < 0)
