fanotify: fix FAN_Q_OVERFLOW case of fanotify_read()
If the FAN_Q_OVERFLOW bit set in event->mask, the fanotify event metadata will not contain a valid file descriptor, but copy_event_to_user() didn't check for that, and unconditionally does a fd_install() on the file descriptor. Which in turn will cause a BUG_ON() in __fd_install(). Introduced by commit 352e3b249284 ("fanotify: sanitize failure exits in copy_event_to_user()") Mea culpa - missed that path ;-/ Reported-by: Alex Shi <lkml.alex@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
