CVE-2024-26874

NameCVE-2024-26874
DescriptionIn the Linux kernel, the following vulnerability has been resolved: drm/mediatek: Fix a null pointer crash in mtk_drm_crtc_finish_page_flip It's possible that mtk_crtc->event is NULL in mtk_drm_crtc_finish_page_flip(). pending_needs_vblank value is set by mtk_crtc->event, but in mtk_drm_crtc_atomic_flush(), it's is not guarded by the same lock in mtk_drm_finish_page_flip(), thus a race condition happens. Consider the following case: CPU1 CPU2 step 1: mtk_drm_crtc_atomic_begin() mtk_crtc->event is not null, step 1: mtk_drm_crtc_atomic_flush: mtk_drm_crtc_update_config( !!mtk_crtc->event) step 2: mtk_crtc_ddp_irq -> mtk_drm_finish_page_flip: lock mtk_crtc->event set to null, pending_needs_vblank set to false unlock pending_needs_vblank set to true, step 2: mtk_crtc_ddp_irq -> mtk_drm_finish_page_flip called again, pending_needs_vblank is still true //null pointer Instead of guarding the entire mtk_drm_crtc_atomic_flush(), it's more efficient to just check if mtk_crtc->event is null before use.
