Subject: [PATCH 4.9 19/74] perf: Fix sample_max_stack maximum check

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

------------------

From: Jiri Olsa <jolsa@...nel.org>

commit 5af44ca53d019de47efe6dbc4003dd518e5197ed upstream.

The syzbot hit KASAN bug in perf_callchain_store having the entry stored
behind the allocated bounds [1].

We miss the sample_max_stack check for the initial event that allocates
callchain buffers. This missing check allows to create an event with
sample_max_stack value bigger than the global sysctl maximum:

  # sysctl -a | grep perf_event_max_stack
  kernel.perf_event_max_stack = 127

  # perf record -vv -C 1 -e cycles/max-stack=256/ kill
  ...
  perf_event_attr:
    size                             112
    ...
    sample_max_stack                 256
  ------------------------------------------------------------
  sys_perf_event_open: pid -1  cpu 1  group_fd -1  flags 0x8 = 4

Note the '-C 1', which forces perf record to create just single event.
Otherwise it opens event for every cpu, then the sample_max_stack check
fails on the second event and all's fine.

The fix is to run the sample_max_stack check also for the first event
with callchains.
