SELinux: print denials for buggy kernel with unknown perms

Historically we've seen cases where permissions are requested for classes
where they do not exist.  In particular we have seen CIFS forget to set
i_mode to indicate it is a directory so when we later check something like
remove_name we have problems since it wasn't defined in tclass file.  This
used to result in a avc which included the permission 0x2000 or something.
Currently the kernel will deny the operations (good thing) but will not
print ANY information (bad thing).  First the auditdeny field is no
extended to include unknown permissions.  After that is fixed the logic in
avc_dump_query to output this information isn't right since it will remove
the permission from the av and print the phrase "<NULL>".  This takes us
back to the behavior before the classmap rewrite.

10 years agoSilence the existing API for capability version compatibility check.
Andrew G. Morgan [Mon, 23 Nov 2009 04:57:52 +0000]
Silence the existing API for capability version compatibility check.

When libcap, or other libraries attempt to confirm/determine the supported
capability version magic, they generally supply a NULL dataptr to capget().

In this case, while returning the supported/preferred magic (via a
modified header content), the return code of this system call may be 0,

No libcap code depends on the previous -EINVAL etc. return code, and
all of the above three return codes can accompany a valid (successful)
attempt to determine the requested magic value.

This patch cleans up the system call to return 0, if the call is
successfully being used to determine the supported/preferred capability
magic value.

tpm_tis: TPM_STS_DATA_EXPECT workaround

Some newer Lenovo models are shipped with a TPM that doesn't seem to set the TPM_STS_DATA_EXPECT status bit
when sending it a burst of data, so the code understands it as a failure and doesn't proceed sending the chip

This patch is based on Andy Isaacson's one:


It was heavily discussed how should we deal with identifying the chip in kernel space, but the required
patch to do so was NACK'd:

Drop remapping of netlink classes and bypass of permission checking

compatibility code introduced when the original single netlink
security class used for all netlink sockets was split into
finer-grained netlink classes based on netlink protocol and when
permission checking was added based on netlink message type in Linux

policy < 18 was Fedora Core 2, which was EOL'd on 2005-04-11.

Given that the remapping code was never updated to address the
addition of newer netlink classes, that the corresponding userland
support was dropped in 2005, and that the assumptions made by the
remapping code about the fixed ordering among netlink classes in the

selinux: dynamic class/perm discovery

Modify SELinux to dynamically discover class and permission values
upon policy load, based on the dynamic object class/perm discovery
logic from libselinux.  A mapping is created between kernel-private
class and permission indices used outside the security server and the
policy values used within the security server.

The mappings are only applied upon kernel-internal computations;
similar mappings for the private indices of userspace object managers
is handled on a per-object manager basis by the userspace AVC.  The
interfaces for compute_av and transition_sid are split for kernel
vs. userspace; the userspace functions are distinguished by a _user

The kernel-private class indices are no longer tied to the policy
values and thus do not need to skip indices for userspace classes;
thus the kernel class index values are compressed.  The flask.h
definitions were regenerated by deleting the userspace classes from
refpolicy's definitions and then regenerating the headers.  Going
forward, we can just maintain the flask.h, av_permissions.h, and
classmap.h definitions separately from policy as they are no longer
tied to the policy values.  The next patch introduces a utility to
automate generation of flask.h and av_permissions.h from the
classmap.h definitions.

The older kernel class and permission string tables are removed and
replaced by a single security class mapping table that is walked at
policy load to generate the mapping.  The old kernel class validation
logic is completely replaced by the mapping logic.

The handle unknown logic is reworked.  reject_unknown=1 is handled
when the mappings are computed at policy load time, similar to the old
handling by the class validation logic.  allow_unknown=1 is handled
when computing and mapping decisions - if the permission was not able
to be mapped (i.e. undefined, mapped to zero), then it is
automatically added to the allowed vector.  If the class was not able
to be mapped (i.e. undefined, mapped to zero), then all permissions
are allowed for it if allow_unknown=1.

avc_audit leverages the new security class mapping table to lookup the
class and permission names from the kernel-private indices.

The mdp program is updated to use the new table when generating the
class definitions and allow rules for a minimal boot policy for the
kernel.  It should be noted that this policy will not include any
userspace classes, nor will its policy index values for the kernel
classes correspond with the ones in refpolicy (they will instead match
the kernel-private indices).

SELinux: reset the security_ops before flushing the avc cache

This patch resets the security_ops to the secondary_ops before it flushes
the avc.  It's still possible that a task on another processor could have
already passed the security_ops dereference and be executing an selinux hook
function which would add a new avc entry.  That entry would still not be
freed.  This should however help to reduce the number of needless avcs the
kernel has when selinux is disabled at run time.  There is no wasted
memory if selinux is disabled on the command line or not compiled.

10 years agotty: Fix regressions caused by commit b50989dc
Dave Young [Sun, 27 Sep 2009 16:00:42 +0000]
tty: Fix regressions caused by commit b50989dc

The following commit made console open fails while booting:

commit b50989dc444599c8b21edc23536fc305f4e9b7d5
Author: Alan Cox <alan@linux.intel.com>
Date:   Sat Sep 19 13:13:22 2009 -0700

tty: make the kref destructor occur asynchronously

Due to tty release routines run in a workqueue now, error like the
following will be reported while booting:

INIT open /dev/console Input/output error

It also causes hibernation regression to appear as reported at

The reason is that now there's latency issue with closing, but when
we open a "closing not finished" tty, -EIO will be returned.

Fix it as per the following Alan's suggestion:

  Fun but it's actually not a bug and the fix is wrong in itself as
  the port may be closing but not yet being destructed, in which case
  it seems to do the wrong thing.  Opening a tty that is closing (and
  could be closing for long periods) is supposed to return -EIO.

  I suspect a better way to deal with this and keep the old console
  timing is to split tty->shutdown into two functions.

  tty->shutdown() - called synchronously just before we dump the tty
  onto the waitqueue for destruction

  tty->cleanup() - called when the destructor runs.

  We would then do the shutdown part which can occur in IRQ context
  fine, before queueing the rest of the release (from tty->magic = 0
  ...  the end) to occur asynchronously

  The USB update in -next would then need a call like

       if (tty->cleanup)

  at the top of the async function and the USB shutdown to be split
  between shutdown and cleanup as the USB resource cleanup and final
  tidy cannot occur synchronously as it needs to sleep.

  In other words the logic becomes

       final kref put
               make object unfindable

               clean it up

    ACPI: CPU0 (power states: C1[C1] C2[C3])

ACPI: Clarify resource conflict message

The message "ACPI: Device needs an ACPI driver" is misleading. The
device _may_ need an ACPI driver, if the BIOS implemented a custom
API for the device in question (which, AFAIK, can't be checked.) If
not, then either a generic ACPI driver may be used (for example
"thermal"), or nothing can be done (other than a white list).

I propose to reword the message to:

ACPI: If an ACPI driver is available for this device, you should use
it instead of the native driver

which I think is more correct. Comments and suggestions welcome.

I also added a message warning about possible problems and system
instability when users pass acpi_enforce_resources=lax, as suggested
by Len.

Note that acpi_bus_scan() currently adds and/or starts the *children* of

ACPICA: fixup after acpi_get_object_info() change

Commit 15b8dd53f5ffa changed info->hardware_id from a static array to
a pointer.  If hardware_id is non-NULL, it points to a NULL-terminated
string, so we don't need to terminate it explicitly.  However, it may
be NULL; in that case, we *can't* add a NULL terminator.

This causes a NULL pointer dereference oops for devices without _HID.

cifs: fix locking and list handling code in cifs_open and its helper

The patch to remove cifs_init_private introduced a locking imbalance. It
didn't remove the leftover list addition code and the unlocking in that
function. cifs_new_fileinfo does the list addition now, so there should
be no need to do it outside of that function.

pCifsInode will never be NULL, so we don't need to check for that. This
patch also gets rid of the ugly locking and unlocking across function

11 years agowriteback: don't delay inodes redirtied by a fast dirtier
Wu Fengguang [Fri, 25 Sep 2009 04:04:10 +0000]
writeback: don't delay inodes redirtied by a fast dirtier

Debug traces show that in per-bdi writeback, the inode under writeback
almost always get redirtied by a busy dirtier.  We used to call
redirty_tail() in this case, which could delay inode for up to 30s.

This is unacceptable because it now happens so frequently for plain cp/dd,
that the accumulated delays could make writeback of big files very slow.

So let's distinguish between data redirty and metadata only redirty.
The first one is caused by a busy dirtier, while the latter one could
happen in XFS, NFS, etc. when they are doing delalloc or updating isize.

The inode being busy dirtied will now be requeued for next io, while
the inode being redirtied by fs will continue to be delayed to avoid
repeated IO.

writeback: make the super_block pinning more efficient

Currently we pin the inode->i_sb for every single inode. This
increases cache traffic on sb->s_umount sem. Lets instead
cache the inode sb pin state and keep the super_block pinned
for as long as keep writing out inodes from the same
