10 years agox86: implement x86_32 stack protector
Tejun Heo [Mon, 9 Feb 2009 13:17:40 +0000]
x86: implement x86_32 stack protector

Impact: stack protector for x86_32

Implement stack protector for x86_32.  GDT entry 28 is used for it.
It's set to point to stack_canary-20 and have the length of 24 bytes.
CONFIG_CC_STACKPROTECTOR turns off CONFIG_X86_32_LAZY_GS and sets %gs
to the stack canary segment on entry.  As %gs is otherwise unused by
the kernel, the canary can be anywhere.  It's defined as a percpu
variable.

x86_32 exception handlers take register frame on stack directly as
struct pt_regs.  With -fstack-protector turned on, gcc copies the
whole structure after the stack canary and (of course) doesn't copy
back on return thus losing all changed.  For now, -fno-stack-protector
is added to all files which contain those functions.  We definitely
need something better.

10 years agox86: make lazy %gs optional on x86_32
Tejun Heo [Mon, 9 Feb 2009 13:17:40 +0000]
x86: make lazy %gs optional on x86_32

Impact: pt_regs changed, lazy gs handling made optional, add slight
        overhead to SAVE_ALL, simplifies error_code path a bit

On x86_32, %gs hasn't been used by kernel and handled lazily.  pt_regs
doesn't have place for it and gs is saved/loaded only when necessary.
In preparation for stack protector support, this patch makes lazy %gs
handling optional by doing the followings.

* Add CONFIG_X86_32_LAZY_GS and place for gs in pt_regs.

* Save and restore %gs along with other registers in entry_32.S unless
  LAZY_GS.  Note that this unfortunately adds "pushl $0" on SAVE_ALL
  even when LAZY_GS.  However, it adds no overhead to common exit path
  and simplifies entry path with error code.

* Define different user_gs accessors depending on LAZY_GS and add
  lazy_save_gs() and lazy_load_gs() which are noop if !LAZY_GS.  The
  lazy_*_gs() ops are used to save, load and clear %gs lazily.

* Define ELF_CORE_COPY_KERNEL_REGS() which always read %gs directly.

x86: fix math_emu register frame access

do_device_not_available() is the handler for #NM and it declares that
it takes a unsigned long and calls math_emu(), which takes a long
argument and surprisingly expects the stack frame starting at the zero
argument would match struct math_emu_info, which isn't true regardless
of configuration in the current code.

This patch makes do_device_not_available() take struct pt_regs like
other exception handlers and initialize struct math_emu_info with
pointer to it and pass pointer to the math_emu_info to math_emulate()
like normal C functions do.  This way, unless gcc makes a copy of
struct pt_regs in do_device_not_available(), the register frame is
correctly accessed regardless of kernel configuration or compiler
used.

This doesn't fix all math_emu problems but it at least gets it
somewhat working.

As a result of this missing release, the hypervisor is now unaware of the

After this the guest may start using the same page for other purposes, and
depending on what use the page is put to, it may result in various performance
and/or functional issues ( hangs, reboots).

Since this release is only required for VMI, I now release the pgd page from

...
[    0.000000] nr_irqs_gsi: 38

So nr_irqs_gsi is not right. some irq for MSI will overwrite with io_apic.

ACPICA: Fix table entry truncation calculation

During early boot, ACPI RSDT/XSDT table entries are gathered into the
'initial_tables[]' array.  This array is currently statically defined (see
./drivers/acpi/tables.c).  When there are more table entries than can be
held in the 'initial_tables[]' array, the message "Truncating N table
entries!" is output.  As currently implemented, this message will always
erroneously calculate N as 0.

This patch fixes the calculation that determines how many table entries
will be missing (truncated).

This modification may be used under either the GPL or the BSD-style
license used for Intel ACPI CA code.

Some BIOSes use this bit to choose between hardware or software coordination

is not very optimal in terms of power consumption and extra wakeups from idle.

ACPI: dock: Don't eval _STA on every show_docked sysfs read

Some devices trigger a DEVICE_CHECK on every evalutation of _STA. This
can also be seen in commit 8b59560a3baf2e7c24e0fb92ea5d09eca92805db
(ACPI: dock: avoid check _STA method).  If an undock is processed, the
dock driver sends a uevent and userspace might read the show_docked
property in sysfs. This causes an evaluation of _STA of the particular
device which causes the dock driver to immediately dock again.

In any case, evaluation of _STA (show_docked) does not necessarily mean
that we are docked, so check with the internal device structure.

eCryptfs: Regression in unencrypted filename symlinks

The addition of filename encryption caused a regression in unencrypted
filename symlink support.  ecryptfs_copy_filename() is used when dealing
with unencrypted filenames and it reported that the new, copied filename
was a character longer than it should have been.

This caused the return value of readlink() to count the NULL byte of the

but a version control system (bzr) helped in discovering the bug.

when neither syscall-audit nor syscall tracing is enabled (i.e., never

/* gcc -o int80-badsys -m32 -g int80-badsys.c

   Note to reproduce the bug you need auditd never to have started.  */

elf core dump: fix get_user use

The elf_core_dump() code does its work with set_fs(KERNEL_DS) in force,
so vma_dump_size() needs to switch back with set_fs(USER_DS) to safely
use get_user() for a normal user-space address.

Checking for VM_READ optimizes out the case where get_user() would fail
anyway.  The vm_file check here was already superfluous given the control
flow earlier in the function, so that is a cleanup/optimization unrelated
to other changes but an obvious and trivial one.

CRED: Fix SUID exec regression

The patch:

commit a6f76f23d297f70e2a6b3ec607f7aeeea9e37e8d
CRED: Make execve() take advantage of copy-on-write credentials

moved the place in which the 'safeness' of a SUID/SGID exec was performed to
before de_thread() was called.  This means that LSM_UNSAFE_SHARE is now
calculated incorrectly.  This flag is set if any of the usage counts for
fs_struct, files_struct and sighand_struct are greater than 1 at the time the
determination is made.  All of which are true for threads created by the
pthread library.

However, since we wish to make the security calculation before irrevocably
damaging the process so that we can return it an error code in the case where
we decide we want to reject the exec request on this basis, we have to make the
determination before calling de_thread().

So, instead, we count up the number of threads (CLONE_THREAD) that are sharing
our fs_struct (CLONE_FS), files_struct (CLONE_FILES) and sighand_structs
(CLONE_SIGHAND/CLONE_THREAD) with us.  These will be killed by de_thread() and
so can be discounted by check_unsafe_exec().

We do have to be careful because CLONE_THREAD does not imply FS or FILES.

We _assume_ that there will be no extra references to these structs held by the
threads we're going to kill.

This can be tested with the attached pair of programs.  Build the two programs
using the Makefile supplied, and run ./test1 as a non-root user.  If
successful, you should see something like:

[dhowells@andromeda tmp]$ ./test1
--TEST1--
uid=4043, euid=4043 suid=4043
exec ./test2
--TEST2--
uid=4043, euid=0 suid=0
SUCCESS - Correct effective user ID

and if unsuccessful, something like:

--TEST1--
uid=4043, euid=4043 suid=4043
exec ./test2
--TEST2--
uid=4043, euid=4043 suid=4043
ERROR - Incorrect effective user ID!

The non-root user ID you see will depend on the user you run as.

10 years agovfs: Don't call attach_nobh_buffers() with an empty list
Dave Kleikamp [Fri, 6 Feb 2009 20:59:26 +0000]
vfs: Don't call attach_nobh_buffers() with an empty list

This is a modification of a patch by Bill Pemberton <wfp5p@virginia.edu>

nobh_write_end() could call attach_nobh_buffers() with head == NULL.
This would result in a trap when attach_nobh_buffers() attempted to
access bh->b_this_page.

This can be illustrated by running the writev01 testcase from LTP on jfs.

This error was introduced by commit 5b41e74a "vfs: fix data leak in
nobh_write_end()".  That patch did not take into account that if
PageMappedToDisk() is true upon entry to nobh_write_begin(), then no
buffers will be allocated for the page.  In that case, we won't have to
worry about a failed write leaving unitialized data in the page.

Of course, head != NULL implies !page_has_buffers(page), so no need to
test both.

10 years agomd: Ensure an md array never has too many devices.
NeilBrown [Fri, 6 Feb 2009 07:02:46 +0000]
md: Ensure an md array never has too many devices.

Each different metadata format supported by md supports a
different maximum number of devices.
We really should be enforcing this maximum in the kernel, but
we aren't quite doing that properly.

We currently only enforce it at the 'hot_add' point, which is an
older interface which is not used by current userspace.

We need to also enforce it at 'add_new_disk' time for active arrays
and at 'do_md_run' time when starting a new array.

So move the test from 'hot_add' into 'bind_rdev_to_array' which is
called from both 'hot_add' and 'add_new_disk, and add a new
test in 'analyse_sbs' which is called from 'do_md_run'.

This bug (or missing feature) has been around "forever" and so
the patch is suitable for any -stable that is currently maintained.

Andre Noll [Fri, 6 Feb 2009 04:10:52 +0000]
md: Fix a bug in linear.c causing which_dev() to return the wrong device.

ab5bd5cbc8d4b868378d062eed3d4240930fbb86 introduced the following
bug in linear software raid for large arrays on 32 bit machines:

which_dev() computes the device holding a given sector by shifting
down the sector number to a 32 bit range, dividing by the array
spacing and looking up the resulting index in the hash table of
the array.

Because the computed index might be slightly too small, a loop at
the end of which_dev() increases the index until the given sector
actually falls into the range of the device associated with that index.

The changes of the above mentioned commit caused this loop to check
whether the _index_ rather than the sector number is small enough,
effectively bypassing the loop and thus possibly returning the wrong
device.

As reported by Simon Kirby, this leads to errors such as

linear_make_request: Sector 2340486136 out of bounds on dev sdi: 156301312 sectors, offset 2109870464

Fix this bug by introducing a local variable for the index so that
the variable containing the passed sector is left unchanged.

we choose to simply return that error up to the filesystem (or whatever)
rather than failing the whole array.

However the codes doesn't quite do that.  We attempt a readbalance
which allocates the same drive, so we retry the read - indefinitely.

Instead:  If read_balance in the error case chooses the same drive that just
failed, treat it as a failure and don't retry.

do_wp_page: fix regression with execute in place

Fix do_wp_page for VM_MIXEDMAP mappings.

In the case where pfn_valid returns 0 for a pfn at the beginning of
do_wp_page and the mapping is not shared writable, the code branches to
label `gotten:' with old_page == NULL.

In case the vma is locked (vma->vm_flags & VM_LOCKED), lock_page,
clear_page_mlock, and unlock_page try to access the old_page.

This patch checks whether old_page is valid before it is dereferenced.

The regression was introduced by "mlock: mlocked pages are unevictable"
(commit b291f000393f5a0b679012b39d79fbc85c018233).

10 years agowait: prevent exclusive waiter starvation
Johannes Weiner [Wed, 4 Feb 2009 23:12:14 +0000]
wait: prevent exclusive waiter starvation

With exclusive waiters, every process woken up through the wait queue must
ensure that the next waiter down the line is woken when it has finished.

Interruptible waiters don't do that when aborting due to a signal.  And if
an aborting waiter is concurrently woken up through the waitqueue, noone
will ever wake up the next waiter.

This has been observed with __wait_on_bit_lock() used by
lock_page_killable(): the first contender on the queue was aborting when
the actual lock holder woke it up concurrently.  The aborted contender
didn't acquire the lock and therefor never did an unlock followed by
waking up the next waiter.

Add abort_exclusive_wait() which removes the process' wait descriptor from
the waitqueue, iff still queued, or wakes up the next waiter otherwise.
It does so under the waitqueue lock.  Racing with a wake up means the
aborting process is either already woken (removed from the queue) and will
wake up the next waiter, or it will remove itself from the queue and the
concurrent wake up will apply to the next waiter after it.

Use abort_exclusive_wait() in __wait_event_interruptible_exclusive() and
__wait_on_bit_lock() when they were interrupted by other means than a wake
up through the queue.
