Subject: [dpdk-dev] [PATCH] librte_eal: FreeBSD contigmem prevent possible buffer overrun during module unload.
Date: Tue, 14 Oct 2014 13:18:36 +0100
Message-ID: <1413289116-4825-1-git-send-email-alan.carew@intel.com> (raw)

The maximum mount contiguous memory regions for FreeBSD is limited by
RTE_CONTIGMEM_MAX_NUM_BUFS, a pointer to each region is stored in
static void * contigmem_buffers[RTE_CONTIGMEM_MAX_NUM_BUFS]

A user can specify a greater amount via hw.contigmem.num_buffers,
while the allocation logic will prevent this allocation from occuring the logic
in contigmem_unload() will attempt to free hw.contigmem.num_buffers and an
overrun occurs.

This patch limits the freeing to a maximum of RTE_CONTIGMEM_MAX_NUM_BUFS.
