Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 5.0 34/34] perf/x86/intel: Fix race in intel_pmu_disable_event()

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

[ Upstream commit 6f55967ad9d9752813e36de6d5fdbd19741adfc7 ]

New race in x86_pmu_stop() was introduced by replacing the
atomic __test_and_clear_bit() of cpuc->active_mask by separate
test_bit() and __clear_bit() calls in the following commit:

  3966c3feca3f ("x86/perf/amd: Remove need to check "running" bit in NMI handler")

The race causes panic for PEBS events with enabled callchains:

  BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 0000000000000000
  ...
  RIP: 0010:perf_prepare_sample+0x8c/0x530
  Call Trace:

   x86_pmu_del+0x46/0x140
   event_sched_out.isra.97+0x7e/0x160
  ...

The event is configured to make samples from PEBS drain code,
but when it's disabled, we'll go through NMI path instead,
where data->callchain will not get allocated and we'll crash:

          x86_pmu_stop
            test_bit(hwc->idx, cpuc->active_mask)
            intel_pmu_disable_event(event)
            {
              ...
              intel_pmu_pebs_disable(event);
              ...

EVENT OVERFLOW ->  <NMI>
                     intel_pmu_handle_irq
                       handle_pmi_common
   TEST PASSES ->        test_bit(bit, cpuc->active_mask))
                           perf_event_overflow
                             perf_prepare_sample
                             {
                               ...
                               if (!(sample_type & __PERF_SAMPLE_CALLCHAIN_EARLY))
                                     data->callchain = perf_callchain(event, regs);

         CRASH ->              size += data->callchain->nr;
                             }
                   </NMI>
              ...
              x86_pmu_disable_event(event)
            }

            __clear_bit(hwc->idx, cpuc->active_mask);

Fixing this by disabling the event itself before setting
off the PEBS bit.
