Re: [Xen-devel] [Xen-users] XSM/Flask iomem

Ok thanks.
I didn't suspect checkpolicy to be in charge of this. I used the version 2.5 so

This is apparently a mismatch between what the checkpolicy compilation does
and what it is expected to do.  While some parts of checkpolicy do this
sorting, the main compilation flow does not, and the policy compilation
process does not ensure inputs are sorted.  In the future, newer versions
of checkpolicy should fix this bug.  Newer versions of Xen may also start
checking this ordering on policy load (I'll submit a patch to do this).

This bug also applies to I/O ports, but not the other types of policy
items (IRQs, PCI devices, or devicetree).  It will cause non-sorted entries
to be skipped in most cases, instead querying the default sid, but larger
iomem/ioport ranges might also query the skipped entry (always in addition
to the default).

Until the fixed version of checkpoicy is released and adopted, policy
writers can manually sort their iomem/ioport ranges as a workaround.
