Subject: CVE-2021-47066: async_xor: increase src_offs when dropping destination page

Description
===========

In the Linux kernel, the following vulnerability has been resolved:

async_xor: increase src_offs when dropping destination page

Now we support sharing one page if PAGE_SIZE is not equal stripe size. To
support this, it needs to support calculating xor value with different
offsets for each r5dev. One offset array is used to record those offsets.

In RMW mode, parity page is used as a source page. It sets
ASYNC_TX_XOR_DROP_DST before calculating xor value in ops_run_prexor5.
So it needs to add src_list and src_offs at the same time. Now it only
needs src_list. So the xor value which is calculated is wrong. It can
cause data corruption problem.

I can reproduce this problem 100% on a POWER8 machine. The steps are:

  mdadm -CR /dev/md0 -l5 -n3 /dev/sdb1 /dev/sdc1 /dev/sdd1 --size=3G
  mkfs.xfs /dev/md0
  mount /dev/md0 /mnt/test
  mount: /mnt/test: mount(2) system call failed: Structure needs cleaning.

The Linux kernel CVE team has assigned CVE-2021-47066 to this issue.

Mitigation
==========

The Linux kernel CVE team recommends that you update to the latest
stable kernel version for this, and many other bugfixes.  Individual
changes are never tested alone, but rather are part of a larger kernel
release.  Cherry-picking individual commits is not recommended or
supported by the Linux kernel community at all.  If however, updating to
the latest release is impossible, the individual changes to resolve this
issue can be found at these commits:
