commit fb544d1c upstream.
We recently addressed a VMID generation race by introducing a read/write
lock around accesses and updates to the vmid generation values.
However, kvm_arch_vcpu_ioctl_run() also calls need_new_vmid_gen() but
does so without taking the read lock.
As far as I can tell, this can lead to the same kind of race:
VM 0, VCPU 0 VM 0, VCPU 1
update_vttbr (vmid 254)
update_vttbr (vmid 1) // roll over
need_new_vmid_gen == false //because vmid gen matches
enter_guest (vmid 254)
kvm_arch.vttbr = <PGD>:<VMID 1>
enter_guest (vmid 1)
Which results in running two VCPUs in the same VM with different VMIDs
and (even worse) other VCPUs from other VMs could now allocate clashing
VMID 254 from the new generation as long as VCPU 0 is not exiting.
Attempt to solve this by making sure vttbr is updated before another CPU
can observe the updated VMID generation.
