Subject: [PATCH v2 17/30] scsi: Define usercopy region in scsi_sense_cache slab cache

From: David Windsor <dave@...lcore.net>

SCSI sense buffers, stored in struct scsi_cmnd.sense and therefore
contained in the scsi_sense_cache slab cache, need to be copied to/from
userspace.

cache object allocation:
    drivers/scsi/scsi_lib.c:
        scsi_select_sense_cache(...):
            return ... ? scsi_sense_isadma_cache : scsi_sense_cache

        scsi_alloc_sense_buffer(...):
            return kmem_cache_alloc_node(scsi_select_sense_cache(), ...);

        scsi_init_request(...):
            ...
            cmd->sense_buffer = scsi_alloc_sense_buffer(...);
            ...
            cmd->req.sense = cmd->sense_buffer

example usage trace:

    block/scsi_ioctl.c:
        (inline from sg_io)
        blk_complete_sghdr_rq(...):
            struct scsi_request *req = scsi_req(rq);
            ...
            copy_to_user(..., req->sense, len)

        scsi_cmd_ioctl(...):
            sg_io(...);

In support of usercopy hardening, this patch defines a region in
the scsi_sense_cache slab cache in which userspace copy operations
are allowed.

This region is known as the slab cache's usercopy region.  Slab
caches can now check that each copy operation involving cache-managed
memory falls entirely within the slab's usercopy region.
