DescriptionIn the Linux kernel, the following vulnerability has been resolved: iommu/vt-d: Fix WARN_ON in iommu probe path Commit 1a75cc710b95 ("iommu/vt-d: Use rbtree to track iommu probed devices") adds all devices probed by the iommu driver in a rbtree indexed by the source ID of each device. It assumes that each device has a unique source ID. This assumption is incorrect and the VT-d spec doesn't state this requirement either. The reason for using a rbtree to track devices is to look up the device with PCI bus and devfunc in the paths of handling ATS invalidation time out error and the PRI I/O page faults. Both are PCI ATS feature related. Only track the devices that have PCI ATS capabilities in the rbtree to avoid unnecessary WARN_ON in the iommu probe path. Otherwise, on some platforms below kernel splat will be displayed and the iommu probe results in failure.
