Subject: [BUG] bpf: syscall: a possible sleep-in-atomic-context bug in
 map_update_elem()

The kernel may sleep with holding a rcu read lock.

The function call paths (from bottom to top) in Linux-4.16 are:

[FUNC] kmalloc(GFP_KERNEL)
kernel/kthread.c, 283: kmalloc in __kthread_create_on_node
kernel/kthread.c, 365: __kthread_create_on_node in kthread_create_on_node
kernel/bpf/cpumap.c, 368: kthread_create_on_node in __cpu_map_entry_alloc
kernel/bpf/cpumap.c, 490: __cpu_map_entry_alloc in cpu_map_update_elem
kernel/bpf/syscall.c, 724: [FUNC_PTR]cpu_map_update_elem in map_update_elem
kernel/bpf/syscall.c, 723: rcu_read_lock in map_update_elem

Note that [FUNC_PTR] means a function pointer call is used.

I do not find a good way to fix it, so I only report.
This is found by my static analysis tool (DSAC).


Best wishes,
