    Subject[PATCH 5.10 225/530] ACPI: CPPC: Replace cppc_attr with kobj_attribute
    From: Nathan Chancellor <>

    [ Upstream commit 2bc6262c6117dd18106d5aa50d53e945b5d99c51 ]

    All of the CPPC sysfs show functions are called via indirect call in
    kobj_attr_show(), where they should be of type

    ssize_t (*show)(struct kobject *kobj, struct kobj_attribute *attr, char *buf);

    because that is the type of the ->show() member in
    'struct kobj_attribute' but they are actually of type

    ssize_t (*show)(struct kobject *kobj, struct attribute *attr, char *buf);

    because of the ->show() member in 'struct cppc_attr', resulting in a
    Control Flow Integrity violation [1].

    $ cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/acpi_cppc/highest_perf

    $ dmesg | grep "CFI failure"
    [ 175.970559] CFI failure (target: show_highest_perf+0x0/0x8):

    As far as I can tell, the only difference between 'struct cppc_attr'
    and 'struct kobj_attribute' aside from the type of the attr parameter
    is the type of the count parameter in the ->store() member (ssize_t vs.
    size_t), which does not actually matter because all of these nodes are

    Eliminate 'struct cppc_attr' in favor of 'struct kobj_attribute' to fix
    the violation.
