Priority
Description
The madvise_willneed function in mm/madvise.c in the Linux kernel before
4.14.4 allows local users to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) by
triggering use of MADVISE_WILLNEED for a DAX mapping.

It was discovered that an infinite loop could occur in the madvise(2)
implementation in the Linux kernel in certain circumstances. A local
attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system hang).
