Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 5.10 39/51] nvme: avoid possible double fetch in handling CQE

From: Lalithambika Krishnakumar <lalithambika.krishnakumar@...el.com>

[ Upstream commit 62df80165d7f197c9c0652e7416164f294a96661 ]

While handling the completion queue, keep a local copy of the command id
from the DMA-accessible completion entry. This silences a time-of-check
to time-of-use (TOCTOU) warning from KF/x[1], with respect to a
Thunderclap[2] vulnerability analysis. The double-read impact appears
benign.

There may be a theoretical window for @command_id to be used as an
adversary-controlled array-index-value for mounting a speculative
execution attack, but that mitigation is saved for a potential follow-on.
A man-in-the-middle attack on the data payload is out of scope for this
analysis and is hopefully mitigated by filesystem integrity mechanisms.
