    x86/mm: Limit mmap() of /dev/mem to valid physical addresses · ce56a86e
    Craig Bergstrom authored
    Currently, it is possible to mmap() any offset from /dev/mem.  If a
    program mmaps() /dev/mem offsets outside of the addressable limits
    of a system, the page table can be corrupted by setting reserved bits.
    For example if you mmap() offset 0x0001000000000000 of /dev/mem on an
    x86_64 system with a 48-bit bus, the page fault handler will be called
    with error_code set to RSVD.  The kernel then crashes with a page table
    corruption error.
    This change prevents this page table corruption on x86 by refusing
    to mmap offsets higher than the highest valid address in the system.
