For general information regarding FreeBSD Errata Notices and Security
Advisories, including descriptions of the fields above, security
branches, and the following sections, please visit
<URL:http://security.freebsd.org/>.

I.   Background

The FreeBSD virtual memory system allows growing stack by mapping anonymous
memory region on top of a stack via mmap(2) system call with MAP_STACK bit
enabled in flags parameter.

II.  Problem Description

The FreeBSD virtual memory system tries to coalesce adjacent memory regions
into one single object when possible.  When growing the stack via mmap(2), it
will also try to coalesce the newly allocated memory into the existing object.
This would result in a failed assertion later in vm_map_stack(), which expects
that a new object is returned.

III. Impact

The system will panic when this happens.

IV.  Workaround

No workaround is available.

V.   Solution

Perform one of the following:

1) Upgrade your system to a supported FreeBSD stable or release / security
branch (releng) dated after the correction date.

2) To update your present system via a source code patch:

The following patches have been verified to apply to the applicable
FreeBSD release branches.

a) Download the relevant patch from the location below, and verify the
detached PGP signature using your PGP utility.

# fetch http://security.FreeBSD.org/patches/EN-14:02/mmap.patch
# fetch http://security.FreeBSD.org/patches/EN-14:02/mmap.patch.asc
# gpg --verify mmap.patch.asc

b) Apply the patch.

# cd /usr/src
# patch < /path/to/patch

c) Recompile your kernel as described in
<URL:http://www.FreeBSD.org/handbook/kernelconfig.html> and reboot the
system.

3) To update your system via a binary patch:

Systems running a RELEASE version of FreeBSD on the i386 or amd64
platforms can be updated via the freebsd-update(8) utility:

# freebsd-update fetch
# freebsd-update install

VI.  Correction details

The following list contains the revision numbers of each file that was
corrected in FreeBSD.
