Vesa-Matti Kari [Wed, 6 Aug 2008 15:24:51 +0000]
selinux: conditional expression type validation was off-by-one

expr_isvalid() in conditional.c was off-by-one and allowed
invalid expression type COND_LAST. However, it is this header file
that needs to be fixed. That way the if-statement's disjunction's
second component reads more naturally, "if expr type is greater than
the last allowed value" ( rather than using ">=" in conditional.c):

  if (expr->expr_type <= 0 || expr->expr_type > COND_LAST)

smack: limit privilege by label

There have been a number of requests to make the Smack LSM
enforce MAC even in the face of privilege, either capability
based or superuser based. This is not universally desired,
however, so it seems desirable to make it optional. Further,
at least one legacy OS implemented a scheme whereby only
processes running with one particular label could be exempt
from MAC. This patch supports these three cases.

If /smack/onlycap is empty (unset or null-string) privilege
is enforced in the normal way.

If /smack/onlycap contains a label only processes running with
that label may be MAC exempt.

If the label in /smack/onlycap is the star label ("*") the
semantics of the star label combine with the privilege
restrictions to prevent any violations of MAC, even in the
presence of privilege.

Again, this will be independent of the privilege scheme.

try harder to load tty ldisc driver

Currently function tty_ldisc_get() tries to load an ldisc driver module
only when tty_ldisc_try_get() returns -EAGAIN. This happens only if
module is being unloaded. If ldisc module is not loaded
tty_ldisc_try_get() returns -EINVAL and this case is not handled in
tty_ldisc_get(), so request_module() is not called.

Attached patch fixes this by calling request_module() if
tty_ldisc_try_get() returned any error code.

Some platform decide whether they support huge pages at boot time.  On
these, such as powerpc, HPAGE_SHIFT is a variable, not a constant, and is
set to 0 when there is no such support.

The patches to introduce multiple huge pages support broke that causing

support for multiple page sizes.

Same problem have
__start___bug_table

When defining a symbol in vmlinux.lds, use the VMLINUX_SYMBOL macro.
VMLINUX_SYMBOL adds a prefix charactor.

You can't just use straight symbol names in common header files as they
dont take into consideration weird arch-specific ABI conventions.  in the
case of Blackfin/h8300, the ABI dictates that any C-visible symbols have
an underscore prefixed to them.  Thus all symbols in vmlinux.lds.h need to
be wrapped in VMLINUX_SYMBOL() so that each arch can put hide this magic
in their own files.

PNP: fix formatting of dbg_pnp_show_resources() output

Each resource should be printed on its own line, so start snprintf'ing
at the beginning of the buffer every time through the loop.

Also, use scnprintf() rather than snprintf() when building up the
buffer to print.  scnprintf() returns the number of characters actually
written into the buffer (not including the trailing NULL).

snprintf() returns the number of characters that *would be* written,
assuming everything would fit in the buffer.  That's nice if we want to
resize the buffer to make sure everything fits, but in this case, I
just want to keep from overflowing the buffer, and it's OK if the
output is truncated.

Using snprintf() meant that my "len" could grow to be more than the
the buffer size, which makes "sizeof(buf) - len" negative, which causes
this alarming WARN_ON:

tracehook: fix exit_signal=0 case

My commit 2b2a1ff64afbadac842bbc58c5166962cf4f7664 introduced a regression
(sorry about that) for the odd case of exit_signal=0 (e.g. clone_flags=0).
This is not a normal use, but it's used by a case in the glibc test suite.

Dying with exit_signal=0 sends no signal, but it's supposed to wake up a
parent's blocked wait*() calls (unlike the delayed_group_leader case).
This fixes tracehook_notify_death() and its caller to distinguish a
"signal 0" wakeup from the delayed_group_leader case (with no wakeup).

11 years agokernel/audit.c control character detection is off-by-one
Vesa-Matti J Kari [Tue, 22 Jul 2008 21:06:13 +0000]
kernel/audit.c control character detection is off-by-one

Hello,

According to my understanding there is an off-by-one bug in the
function:

   audit_string_contains_control()

in:

  kernel/audit.c

Patch is included.

I do not know from how many places the function is called from, but for
example, SELinux Access Vector Cache tries to log untrusted filenames via
call path:

avc_audit()
     audit_log_untrustedstring()
         audit_log_n_untrustedstring()
             audit_string_contains_control()

If audit_string_contains_control() detects control characters, then the
string is hex-encoded. But the hex=0x7f dec=127, DEL-character, is not
detected.

I guess this could have at least some minor security implications, since a
user can create a filename with 0x7f in it, causing logged filename to
possibly look different when someone reads it on the terminal.

Eric Paris [Mon, 7 Jul 2008 14:49:45 +0000]
[PATCH] Audit: Collect signal info when SIGUSR2 is sent to auditd

Makes the kernel audit subsystem collect information about the sending
process when that process sends SIGUSR2 to the userspace audit daemon.
SIGUSR2 is a new interesting signal to auditd telling auditd that it
should try to start logging to disk again and the error condition which
caused it to stop logging to disk (usually out of space) has been
rectified.

Alexey Dobriyan [Sat, 26 Jul 2008 07:18:28 +0000]
[PATCH 1/2] proc: fix inode number bogorithmetic

Id which proc gets from IDR for inode number and id which proc removes
from IDR do not match. E.g. 0x11a transforms into 0x8000011a.

Which stayed unnoticed for a long time because, surprise, idr_remove()
masks out that high bit before doing anything.

All of this due to "| ~MAX_ID_MASK" in release_inode_number().

I still don't understand how it's supposed to work, because "| ~MASK"
is not an inversion for "& MAX" operation.

So, use just one nice, working addition. Make start offset unsigned int,
while I'm at it. It's longness is not used anywhere.

For anonymous pages without a swap cache backing the check in

In addition the clearing of the dirty bit in __SetPageUptodate is
pointless as well. With these two changes there is no storage key
operation for an anonymous page anymore if it does not hit the swap
space.

11 years agokgdb: fix gdb serial thread queries
Jason Wessel [Fri, 1 Aug 2008 13:39:35 +0000]
kgdb: fix gdb serial thread queries

The command "info threads" did not work correctly with kgdb.  It would
result in a silent kernel hang if used.

This patach addresses several problems.
 - Fix use of deprecated NR_CPUS
 - Fix kgdb to not walk linearly through the pid space
 - Correctly implement shadow pids
 - Change the threads per query to a #define
 - Fix kgdb_hex2long to work with negated values

The threads 0 and -1 are reserved to represent the current task.  That
means that CPU 0 will start with a shadow thread id of -2, and CPU 1
will have a shadow thread id of -3, etc...

From the debugger you can switch to a shadow thread to see what one of
the other cpus was doing, however it is not possible to execute run
control operations on any other cpu execept the cpu executing the
kgdb_handle_exception().

11 years agokgdb: fix kgdb_validate_break_address to perform a mem write
Jason Wessel [Fri, 1 Aug 2008 13:39:34 +0000]
kgdb: fix kgdb_validate_break_address to perform a mem write

A regression to the kgdb core was found in the case of using the
CONFIG_DEBUG_RODATA kernel option.  When this option is on, a breakpoint
cannot be written into any readonly memory page.  When an external
debugger requests a breakpoint to get set, the
kgdb_validate_break_address() was only checking to see if the address
to place the breakpoint was readable and lacked a write check.

This patch changes the validate routine to try reading (via the
breakpoint set request) and also to try immediately writing the break
point.  If either fails, an error is correctly returned and the
debugger behaves correctly.  Then an end user can make the
descision to use hardware breakpoints.

Also update the documentation to reflect that using
CONFIG_DEBUG_RODATA will inhibit the use of software breakpoints.

11 years agokgdb: remove the requirement for CONFIG_FRAME_POINTER
Jason Wessel [Fri, 1 Aug 2008 13:39:34 +0000]
kgdb: remove the requirement for CONFIG_FRAME_POINTER

There is no technical reason that the kgdb core requires frame
pointers.  It is up to the end user of KGDB to decide if they need
them or not.

[ anemo@mba.ocn.ne.jp: removed frame pointers on mips ]
