Subject: [PATCH 3.13 002/259] KVM: ioapic: fix assignment of ioapic->rtc_status.pending_eoi (CVE-2014-0155) -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Paolo Bonzini <>

commit 5678de3f15010b9022ee45673f33bcfc71d47b60 upstream.

QE reported that they got the BUG_ON in ioapic_service to trigger.
I cannot reproduce it, but there are two reasons why this could happen.

The less likely but also easiest one, is when kvm_irq_delivery_to_apic
does not deliver to any APIC and returns -1.

Because irqe.shorthand == 0, the kvm_for_each_vcpu loop in that
function is never reached.  However, you can target the similar loop in
kvm_irq_delivery_to_apic_fast; just program a zero logical destination
address into the IOAPIC, or an out-of-range physical destination address.
