Subject: CVE-2024-38626: fuse: clear FR_SENT when re-adding requests into pending list


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

fuse: clear FR_SENT when re-adding requests into pending list

The following warning was reported by lee bruce:

  ------------[ cut here ]------------
  WARNING: CPU: 0 PID: 8264 at fs/fuse/dev.c:300
  fuse_request_end+0x685/0x7e0 fs/fuse/dev.c:300
  Modules linked in:
  CPU: 0 PID: 8264 Comm: ab2 Not tainted 6.9.0-rc7
  Hardware name: QEMU Standard PC (i440FX + PIIX, 1996)
  RIP: 0010:fuse_request_end+0x685/0x7e0 fs/fuse/dev.c:300
  Call Trace:

  do_syscall_64+0xce/0x260 arch/x86/entry/common.c:83

The warning is due to the FUSE_NOTIFY_RESEND notify sent by the write()
syscall in the reproducer program and it happens as follows:

(1) calls fuse_dev_read() to read the INIT request
The read succeeds. During the read, bit FR_SENT will be set on the
(2) calls fuse_dev_write() to send an USE_NOTIFY_RESEND notify
The resend notify will resend all processing requests, so the INIT
request is moved from processing list to pending list again.
(3) calls fuse_dev_read() with an invalid output address
fuse_dev_read() will try to copy the same INIT request to the output
address, but it will fail due to the invalid address, so the INIT
request is ended and triggers the warning in fuse_request_end().

Fix it by clearing FR_SENT when re-adding requests into pending list.

The Linux kernel CVE team has assigned CVE-2024-38626 to this issue.

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
