*** brlogger changes topic to "Kernel maintenance updates (Meeting topic: CIP IRC weekly meeting)"09:05
masashi910Thanks to Iwamatsu-san and Pavel-san, three kernels were released since the last IRC meeting.09:05
masashi910v4.19.120-cip26 and v4.4.222-cip45 on 11th May by Iwamatsu-san09:05
masashi910v4.19.120-cip25-rt10 on 11th May by Pavel-san09:05
masashi910That's all from me.09:05
paveltestI have reviewed 4.19.122 and .123.09:05
wensa lot of CVEs this week, though mostly from fuzzers09:05
iwamatsuI reviewed 4.4.221 and 222.09:06
bwhI backported some fixed for stable branches 4.14, 4.9, and 4.409:06
wens"spi: spi-dw: Add lock protect dw_spi rx/tx to prevent concurrent call" for CVE-2020-12769 needs backport to 4.4 and 4.909:07
paveltestwens: socfpga uses that controller, so that might be relevant.09:08
iwamatsuwens: I can work about this CVE.09:09
masashi910paveltest, wens, iwamatsu, bwh: Thanks for your works!09:11
masashi910any other topics?09:11
wens"scsi: sg: add sg_remove_request in sg_write" for CVE-2020-12770 needs backport to all LTS branches; this looks like some sort of resource leak in the SCSI subsystem09:11
wensmy computer crashed :/09:11
masashi910wens: thanks for your reports. do you have any others?09:12
wensthere's one CVE related to KVM SVM on x8609:13
wenslooks like Siemens uses that?09:14
paveltestThat's actually one of my questions: a lot of stable patches is about KVM. Does someone use it in CIP project? Siemens?09:14
bwhSVM is for AMD CPUs only, so it might not actually be used09:14
wensmaybe we could ask them to remove it from their config?09:15
bwhIt certainly seems worth querying09:16
masashi910wens: Could you ask them?09:16
wensanother feature that I find unlikely to be used: XDP sockets, enabled for Hitachi cyclonev09:16
wensmasashi910: I don't have any contact info on hand; I can probably ask SZ for that09:18
szlinwens: sure09:19
masashi910wens, sz: thanks!09:19
masashi910wens: Regarding cycloneV, it is on the reference list. Do you think XDP sockets are not used?09:20
wensXDP (express data path) is used for network intensive workloads to bypass certain parts of the network stack09:21
wensI believe it is used by big tech / web stuff, not embedded09:22
masashi910wens: I see. It could be related to our backport policy. So, let me trigger this discussion among the kernel team offline.09:23
masashi910wens: Thanks for all your works!09:23
