Subject[PATCH 5.10 319/452] f2fs: fix dereference of stale list iterator after loop body
From: Jakob Koschel <>

[ Upstream commit 2aaf51dd39afb6d01d13f1e6fe20b684733b37d5 ]

The list iterator variable will be a bogus pointer if no break was hit.
Dereferencing it (cur->page in this case) could load an out-of-bounds/undefined
value making it unsafe to use that in the comparision to determine if the
specific element was found.

Since 'cur->page' *can* be out-ouf-bounds it cannot be guaranteed that
by chance (or intention of an attacker) it matches the value of 'page'
even though the correct element was not found.

This is fixed by using a separate list iterator variable for the loop
and only setting the original variable if a suitable element was found.
Then determing if the element was found is simply checking if the
variable is set.
