Subject: [PATCH 4.13 23/52] idr: remove WARN_ON_ONCE() when trying to replace negative ID

4.13-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Eric Biggers <>

commit a47f68d6a944113bdc8097db6f933c2e17c27bf9 upstream.

IDR only supports non-negative IDs.  There used to be a 'WARN_ON_ONCE(id <
0)' in idr_replace(), but it was intentionally removed by commit
2e1c9b286765 ("idr: remove WARN_ON_ONCE() on negative IDs").

Then it was added back by commit 0a835c4f090a ("Reimplement IDR and IDA
using the radix tree").  However it seems that adding it back was a
mistake, given that some users such as drm_gem_handle_delete()
(DRM_IOCTL_GEM_CLOSE) pass in a value from userspace to idr_replace(),
allowing the WARN_ON_ONCE to be triggered.  drm_gem_handle_delete()
actually just wants idr_replace() to return an error code if the ID is
not allocated, including in the case where the ID is invalid (negative).

So once again remove the bogus WARN_ON_ONCE().

This bug was found by syzkaller, which encountered the following
