If we assign obj->filp, we believe that the create vgem bo is native and
allow direct operations like mmap() assuming it behaves as backed by a
shmemfs inode. When imported from a dmabuf, the obj->pages are
not always meaningful and the shmemfs backing store misleading.

Note, that regular mmap access to a vgem bo is via the dumb buffer API,
and that rejects attempts to mmap an imported dmabuf,

drm_gem_dumb_map_offset():
        if (obj->import_attach) return -EINVAL;

So the only route by which we might accidentally allow mmapping of an
imported buffer is via vgem_prime_mmap(), which checked for
obj->filp assuming that it would be NULL.

Well it would had it been updated to use the common
drm_gem_dum_map_offset() helper, instead it has

vgem_gem_dumb_map():
	if (!obj->filp) return -EINVAL;

falling foul of the same trap as above.

What do you mean by "regular mmap access" here?  It looks like vgem is
using vgem_gem_dumb_map as .dumb_map_offset callback then it doesn't call
drm_gem_dumb_map_offset

As I too found out, and so had to correct my story telling.

By regular mmap() access I mean mmap on the vgem bo [via the dumb buffer
API] as opposed to mmap() via an exported dma-buf fd. I had to look at
igt to see how it was being used.

Now it seems your fix is to disable "regular mmap" on imported dma buf
for vgem. I am not really a graphic guy, but then the api looks like:
for a gem handle, user space has to guess to find out the way to mmap
it. If user space guess wrong, then it will fail to mmap. Is this the
expected way
for people to handle gpu buffer?

You either have a dumb buffer handle, or a dma-buf fd. If you have the
handle, you have to use the dumb buffer API, there's no other way to
mmap it. If you have the dma-buf fd, you should mmap it directly. Those
two are clear.

It's when you import the dma-buf into vgem and create a handle out of
it, that's when the handle is no longer first class and certain uAPI
[the dumb buffer API in particular] fail.

It's not brilliant, as you say, it requires the user to remember the
difference between the handles, but at the same time it does prevent
them falling into coherency traps by forcing them to use the right
driver to handle the object, and have to consider the additional ioctls
that go along with that access.

Yes, Chris is right. Mapping DMA-buf through the mmap() APIs of an 
importer is illegal.

What we could maybe try to do is to redirect this mmap() API call on the 
importer to the exporter, but I'm pretty sure that the fs layer wouldn't 
like that without changes.

Christian.

We already do that, there's a full helper-ified path from I think shmem
helpers through prime helpers to forward this all. Including handling
buffer offsets and all the other lolz back&forth.

Of course there's still the problem that many drivers don't forward the
cache coherency calls for begin/end cpu access, so in a bunch of cases
you'll cache cacheline dirt soup. But that's kinda standard procedure for
dma-buf :-P

But yeah trying to handle the mmap as an importer, bypassing the export:
nope. The one exception is if you have some kind of fancy gart with
cpu-visible pci bar (like at least integrated intel gpus have). But in
that case the mmap very much looks&acts like device access in every way.

Oh, that most likely won't work correctly with unpinned DMA-bufs and 
needs to be avoided.

Each file descriptor is associated with an struct address_space. And 
when you mmap() through the importer by redirecting the system call to 
the exporter you end up with the wrong struct address_space in your VMA.

That in turn can go up easily in flames when the exporter tries to 
invalidate the CPU mappings for its DMA-buf while moving it.

Where are we doing this? My last status was that this is forbidden.

Hm I thought we're doing all that already, but looking at the code
again we're only doing this when opening a new drm fd or dma-buf fd.
So the right file->f_mapping is always set at file creation time.

And we indeed don't frob this more when going another indirection ...
Maybe we screwed up something somewhere :-/

Also I thought the mapping is only taken after the vma is instatiated,
otherwise the tricks we're playing with dma-buf already wouldn't work:
dma-buf has the buffer always at offset 0, whereas gem drm_fd mmap has
it somewhere else. We already adjust vma->vm_pgoff, so I'm wondering
whether we could adjust vm_file too. Or is that the thing that's
forbidden?

Yes, exactly. Modifying vm_pgoff is harmless, tons of code does that.

But changing vma->vm_file, that's something I haven't seen before and 
most likely could blow up badly.

Ok, I read the shmem helpers again, I think those are the only ones
which do the importer mmap -> dma_buf_mmap() forwarding, and hence
break stuff all around here.

They also remove the vma->vm_pgoff offset, which means
unmap_mapping_range wont work anyway. I guess for drivers which use
shmem helpers the hard assumption is that a) can't use p2p dma and b)
pin everything into system memory.

So not a problem. But something to keep in mind. I'll try to do a
kerneldoc patch to note this somewhere. btw on that, did the
timeline/syncobj documentation patch land by now? Just trying to make
sure that doesn't get lost for another few months or so :-/

Ok, so maybe it is a problem. Because there is a drm_gem_shmem_purge()
which uses unmap_mapping_range underneath, and that's used by
panfrost. And panfrost also uses the mmap helper. Kinda wondering
whether we broke some stuff here, or whether the reverse map is
installed before we touch vma->vm_pgoff.

panfrost folks, does panfrost purged buffer handling of mmap still
work correctly? Do you have some kind of igt or similar for this?

I think the key problem here is that unmap_mapping_range() doesn't blow 
up immediately when this is wrong.

E.g. we just have a stale CPU page table entry which allows userspace to 
write to freed up memory, but we don't really notice that immediately....

Maybe we should stop allowing to mmap() DMA-buf through the importer 
file descriptor altogether and only allow mapping it through its own fd 
or the exporter.

I still haven't found time to double check the documentation and most 
likely won't in quite a while.

That is what I tried to do with panfrost a while ago:

    583bbf46133c drm/panfrost: Use drm_gem_map_offset()

    panfrost_ioctl_mmap_bo() contains a reimplementation of
    drm_gem_map_offset() but with a bug - it allows mapping imported
    objects (without going through the exporter). Fix this by switching to
    use the newly renamed drm_gem_map_offset() function instead which has
    the bonus of simplifying the code.

Sadly it was followed by:

    be855382bacb Revert "drm/panfrost: Use drm_gem_map_offset()"
    This reverts commit 583bbf46133c726bae277e8f4e32bfba2a528c7f.

    Turns out we need mmap to work on imported BOs even if the current code
    is buggy.

I'm not aware of any real testing of this. And I fear it probably isn't 
getting much in the way of real-world testing either otherwise someone 
would have grown tired of the "Purging xx bytes" message[1]

I'm a little bit lost on this thread - are you expecting this patch to 
break panfrost? We shouldn't be purging imported memory. Although I'm 
not sure what (if anything) stops you trying to mark imported memory as 
"don't need". Or indeed what would happen.

[1] I have a patch silencing that, but recently haven't had much time 
for working on Panfrost, and don't have my WFH setup quite as slick as I 
did when I was in the office.

Mhm, we might need to push back on the revert.

As long as panfrost keeps the imported DMA-bufs pinned everything should 
be fine as it is.

But this can open up a security hole you can push an elephant through. 
So you need to keep this in the back of your mind if this is ever 
implemented.
