[Qemu-block] [PULL 3/3] block/nbd: fix segmentation fault when .desc is

Subject: [Qemu-block] [PULL 3/3] block/nbd: fix segmentation fault when .desc is not null-terminated

From: Murilo Opsfelder Araujo <address@hidden>

The find_desc_by_name() from util/qemu-option.c relies on the .name not being
NULL to call strcmp(). This check becomes unsafe when the list is not
NULL-terminated, which is the case of nbd_runtime_opts in block/nbd.c, and can
result in segmentation fault when strcmp() tries to access an invalid memory:

    #0 0x00007fff8c75f7d4 in __strcmp_power9 () from /lib64/libc.so.6
    #1 0x00000000102d3ec8 in find_desc_by_name (desc=0x1036d6f0, 
name=0x28e46670 "server.path") at util/qemu-option.c:166

    #3 0x000000001012a2e4 in nbd_open (bs=0x28e42290, options=0x28e469a0,

errp=0x7fffec247f50) at block.c:1135

>From gdb, the desc[i].name was not NULL and resulted in strcmp() accessing an
invalid memory:

    >>> p desc[5]
    $8 = {
      name = 0x1037f098 "R27A",
      type = 1561964883,
      help = 0xc0bbb23e <error: Cannot access memory at address 0xc0bbb23e>,
      def_value_str = 0x2 <error: Cannot access memory at address 0x2>
    >>> p desc[6]
    $9 = {
      name = 0x103dac78 <__gcov0.do_qemu_init_bdrv_nbd_init> "\001",
      type = 272101528,
      help = 0x29ec0b754403e31f <error: Cannot access memory at address 
      def_value_str = 0x81f343b9 <error: Cannot access memory at address 

This patch fixes the segmentation fault in strcmp() by adding a NULL element at
the end of nbd_runtime_opts.desc list, which is the common practice to most of
other structs like runtime_opts in block/null.c. Thus, the desc[i].name != NULL
check becomes safe because it will not evaluate to true when .desc list reached
its end.
