HID: uhid: forbid UHID_CREATE under KERNEL_DS or elevated privileges
commit 8c01db7619f07c85c5cd81ec5eb83608b56c88f5 upstream. When a UHID_CREATE command is written to the uhid char device, a copy_from_user() is done from a user pointer embedded in the command. When the address limit is KERNEL_DS, e.g. as is the case during sys_sendfile(), this can read from kernel memory. Alternatively, information can be leaked from a setuid binary that is tricked to write to the file descriptor. Therefore, forbid UHID_CREATE in these cases. No other commands in uhid_char_write() are affected by this bug and UHID_CREATE is marked as "obsolete", so apply the restriction to UHID_CREATE only rather than to uhid_char_write() entirely. Thanks to Dmitry Vyukov for adding uhid definitions to syzkaller and to Jann Horn for commit 9da3f2b740544 ("x86/fault: BUG() when uaccess helpers fault on kernel addresses"), allowing this bug to be found.
