masashi910#topic Kernel maintenance updates09:06
*** brlogger changes topic to "Kernel maintenance updates (Meeting topic: CIP IRC weekly meeting)"09:06
wensThree new issues from the past two weeks.09:06
wensReport from 4/29:
wensAnd 5/5:
pave1I have reviewed patches queued for 5.10.33, 34, 35 and related 4.19.09:07
wensAs pave1 mentioned in his replies, backport fix for one of the new issues is trivial, while the fixes for the other is in the stable queue.09:08
masashi910wens, pave1: Thanks for your updates.09:09
masashi910pave1: Could you backport CVE-2021-31916?09:11
pave1masashi: Yes, I probably should. Backport is easy, but I can't really test it and have some issues getting patches to the mailing lists.09:12
wenslast time I think you used the wrong address09:12 vs stable@vger.kernel.org09:13
wensor is the former one an alias?09:13
pave1wens: Aha, ok, _that_ would explain stuff. Let me try to do better next time.09:13
wensnot sure when they are planning to move the vger lists to the new mailing list service though09:13
pave1I see both cc: and cc: in the commits.09:14
pave1I guess that confused me.09:14
wensdoc says to use the vger one09:15
masashi910patersonc: CVE-2021-31916 [md: dm_ioctl: out-of-bounds array access] . Do you think CIP Lab has a set to test it?09:15
patersoncmasashi910: What it needed?09:16
masashi910pave1: Do you have specific requirement?09:16
pave1Passing crafted data to device mapper ioctl.09:17
pave1I doubt we have specific tests to do that, as usual for the CVE stuff :-(.09:17
pave1i guess usual way is to simply submit untested patch (again, as usual with CVEs), but...09:18
pave1Backporting the on liner is quite easy but testing is not.09:19
pave1one liner09:19
masashi910pave1: Hmm. Do you know how was it dealt with on other stables?09:20
wensthey likely just apply it without additional testing09:21
pave1masashi910: I believe people simply hope it is simple enough not to need testing.09:21
wensto be honest, mainline developers probably don't care that much about stable kernels09:22
masashi910We need to address this kind of issue when we enter the self maintenance phase. Let's me think about it.09:23
masashi910Let me think about it.09:23
masashi910So, at this moment, let me drop my request, Pavel-san.09:24
