Description Rohit Keshri 2022-10-13 17:14:04 UTC
There is a double-free security bug in split_2MB_gtt_entry.

Here is a calling chain : ppgtt_populate_spt->ppgtt_populate_shadow_entry->split_2MB_gtt_entry. If intel_gvt_dma_map_guest_page failed, it will call  ppgtt_invalidate_spt, which will finally call ppgtt_free_spt and kfree(spt). But the caller does not notice that, and it will call ppgtt_free_spt again in the error path.
