mm, mempolicy: task->mempolicy must be NULL before dropping final reference
KASAN allocates memory from the page allocator as part of kmem_cache_free(), and that can reference current->mempolicy through any number of allocation functions. It needs to be NULL'd out before the final reference is dropped to prevent a use-after-free bug: BUG: KASAN: use-after-free in alloc_pages_current+0x363/0x370 at addr ffff88010b48102c CPU: 0 PID: 15425 Comm: trinity-c2 Not tainted 4.8.0-rc2+ #140 ... Call Trace: dump_stack kasan_object_err kasan_report_error __asan_report_load2_noabort alloc_pages_current <-- use after free depot_save_stack save_stack kasan_slab_free kmem_cache_free __mpol_put <-- free do_exit This patch sets current->mempolicy to NULL before dropping the final reference.
