s390/mm: four page table levels vs. fork
The fork of a process with four page table levels is broken since git commit 6252d702c5311ce9 "[S390] dynamic page tables." All new mm contexts are created with three page table levels and an asce limit of 4TB. If the parent has four levels dup_mmap will add vmas to the new context which are outside of the asce limit. The subsequent call to copy_page_range will walk the three level page table structure of the new process with non-zero pgd and pud indexes. This leads to memory clobbers as the pgd_index *and* the pud_index is added to the mm->pgd pointer without a pgd_deref in between. The init_new_context() function is selecting the number of page table levels for a new context. The function is used by mm_init() which in turn is called by dup_mm() and mm_alloc(). These two are used by fork() and exec(). The init_new_context() function can distinguish the two cases by looking at mm->context.asce_limit, for fork() the mm struct has been copied and the number of page table levels may not change. For exec() the mm_alloc() function set the new mm structure to zero, in this case a three-level page table is created as the temporary stack space is located at STACK_TOP_MAX = 4TB. This fixes CVE-2016-2143.
