12 years agoproc: maps protection
Kees Cook [Tue, 8 May 2007 07:26:04 +0000]
proc: maps protection

The /proc/pid/ "maps", "smaps", and "numa_maps" files contain sensitive
information about the memory location and usage of processes.  Issues:

- maps should not be world-readable, especially if programs expect any
  kind of ASLR protection from local attackers.
- maps cannot just be 0400 because "-D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2 -O2" makes glibc
  check the maps when %n is in a *printf call, and a setuid(getuid())
  process wouldn't be able to read its own maps file.  (For reference
  see http://lkml.org/lkml/2006/1/22/150)
- a system-wide toggle is needed to allow prior behavior in the case of
  non-root applications that depend on access to the maps contents.

This change implements a check using "ptrace_may_attach" before allowing
access to read the maps contents.  To control this protection, the new knob
/proc/sys/kernel/maps_protect has been added, with corresponding updates to
the procfs documentation.

12 years agoadd filesystem subtype support
Miklos Szeredi [Tue, 8 May 2007 07:25:43 +0000]
add filesystem subtype support

There's a slight problem with filesystem type representation in fuse
based filesystems.

From the kernel's view, there are just two filesystem types: fuse and
fuseblk.  From the user's view there are lots of different filesystem
types.  The user is not even much concerned if the filesystem is fuse based
or not.  So there's a conflict of interest in how this should be
represented in fstab, mtab and /proc/mounts.

The current scheme is to encode the real filesystem type in the mount
source.  So an sshfs mount looks like this:

  sshfs#user@server:/   /mnt/server    fuse   rw,nosuid,nodev,...

This url-ish syntax works OK for sshfs and similar filesystems.  However
for block device based filesystems (ntfs-3g, zfs) it doesn't work, since
the kernel expects the mount source to be a real device name.

A possibly better scheme would be to encode the real type in the type
field as "type.subtype".  So fuse mounts would look like this:

  /dev/hda1       /mnt/windows   fuseblk.ntfs-3g   rw,...
  user@server:/   /mnt/server    fuse.sshfs        rw,nosuid,nodev,...

This patch adds the necessary code to the kernel so that this can be
correctly displayed in /proc/mounts.

12 years agoepoll: optimizations and cleanups
Davide Libenzi [Tue, 8 May 2007 07:25:41 +0000]
epoll: optimizations and cleanups

Epoll is doing multiple passes over the ready set at the moment, because of
the constraints over the f_op->poll() call.  Looking at the code again, I
noticed that we already hold the epoll semaphore in read, and this
(together with other locking conditions that hold while doing an
epoll_wait()) can lead to a smarter way [1] to "ship" events to userspace
(in a single pass).

This is a stress application that can be used to test the new code.  It
spwans multiple thread and call epoll_wait() and epoll_ctl() from many
threads.  Stress tested on my dual Opteron 254 w/out any problems.

http://www.xmailserver.org/totalmess.c

This is not a benchmark, just something that tries to stress and exploit
possible problems with the new code.
Also, I made a stupid micro-benchmark:

http://www.xmailserver.org/epwbench.c

[1] Considering that epoll must be thread-safe, there are five ways we can
    be hit during an epoll_wait() transfer loop (ep_send_events()):

    1) The epoll fd going away and calling ep_free
       This just can't happen, since we did an fget() in sys_epoll_wait

    2) An epoll_ctl(EPOLL_CTL_DEL)
       This can't happen because epoll_ctl() gets ep->sem in write, and
       we're holding it in read during ep_send_events()

    3) An fd stored inside the epoll fd going away
       This can't happen because in eventpoll_release_file() we get
       ep->sem in write, and we're holding it in read during
       ep_send_events()

    4) Another epoll_wait() happening on another thread
       They both can be inside ep_send_events() at the same time, we get
       (splice) the ready-list under the spinlock, so each one will get
       its own ready list. Note that an fd cannot be at the same time
       inside more than one ready list, because ep_poll_callback() will
       not re-queue it if it sees it already linked:

       if (ep_is_linked(&epi->rdllink))
                goto is_linked;

       Another case that can happen, is two concurrent epoll_wait(),
       coming in with a userspace event buffer of size, say, ten.
       Suppose there are 50 event ready in the list. The first
       epoll_wait() will "steal" the whole list, while the second, seeing
       no events, will go to sleep. But at the end of ep_send_events() in
       the first epoll_wait(), we will re-inject surplus ready fds, and we
       will trigger the proper wake_up to the second epoll_wait().

    5) ep_poll_callback() hitting us asyncronously
       This is the tricky part. As I said above, the ep_is_linked() test
       done inside ep_poll_callback(), will guarantee us that until the
       item will result linked to a list, ep_poll_callback() will not try
       to re-queue it again (read, write data on any of its members). When
       we do a list_del() in ep_send_events(), the item will still satisfy
       the ep_is_linked() test (whatever data is written in prev/next,
       it'll never be its own pointer), so ep_poll_callback() will still
       leave us alone. It's only after the eventual smp_mb()+INIT_LIST_HEAD(&epi->rdllink)
       that it'll become visible to ep_poll_callback(), but at the point
       we're already past it.

Eric Dumazet [Tue, 8 May 2007 07:25:32 +0000]
Optimize timespec_trunc()

The first thing done by timespec_trunc() is :

  if (gran <= jiffies_to_usecs(1) * 1000)

This should really be a test against a constant known at compile time.

Alas, it isnt. jiffies_to_usec() was unilined so C compiler emits a function
call and a multiply to compute : a CONSTANT.

mov    $0x1,%edi
mov    %rbx,0xffffffffffffffe8(%rbp)
mov    %r12,0xfffffffffffffff0(%rbp)
mov    %edx,%ebx
mov    %rsi,0xffffffffffffffc8(%rbp)
mov    %rsi,%r12
callq  ffffffff80232010 <jiffies_to_usecs>
imul   $0x3e8,%eax,%eax
cmp    %ebx,%eax

This patch reorders kernel/time.c a bit so that jiffies_to_usecs() is defined
before timespec_trunc() so that compiler now generates :

cmp    $0x3d0900,%edx  (HZ=250 on my machine)

This gives a better code (timespec_trunc() becoming a leaf function), and
shorter kernel size as well.

- Changed all copy_*_ns() routines to return a new copy of namespace
  instead of attaching it to task->nsproxy.

- Moved the CAP_SYS_ADMIN checks out of copy_*_ns() routines.

- Removed unnessary !ns checks from copy_*_ns() and added BUG_ON()
  just incase.

- Get rid of all individual unshare_*_ns() routines and make use of

12 years agoexec: fix remove_arg_zero
Nick Piggin [Tue, 8 May 2007 07:25:16 +0000]
exec: fix remove_arg_zero

Petr Tesarik discovered a problem in remove_arg_zero(). He writes:

 When a script is loaded, load_script() replaces argv[0] with the
 name of the interpreter and the filename passed to the exec syscall.
 However, there is no guarantee that the length of the interpreter
 name plus the length of the filename is greater than the length of
 the original argv[0]. If the difference happens to cross a page boundary,
 setup_arg_pages() will call put_dirty_page() [aka install_arg_page()]
 with an address outside the VMA.

 Therefore, remove_arg_zero() must free all pages which would be unused
 after the argument is removed.

So, rewrite the remove_arg_zero function without gotos, with a few comments,
and with the commonly used explicit index/offset. This fixes the problem
and makes it easier to understand as well.

The value of shmmax may be larger than will fit in the struct used by
the 32bit compat version of sys_shmctl. This change mirrors what the
normal sys_shmctl does when called with the old IPC_INFO command.

12 years agoUse stop_machine_run in the Intel RNG driver
Prarit Bhargava [Tue, 8 May 2007 07:25:08 +0000]
Use stop_machine_run in the Intel RNG driver

Replace call_smp_function with stop_machine_run in the Intel RNG driver.

CPU A has done read_lock(&lock)
CPU B has done write_lock_irq(&lock) and is waiting for A to release the lock.

A third CPU calls call_smp_function and issues the IPI.  CPU A takes CPU
C's IPI.  CPU B is waiting with interrupts disabled and does not see the
IPI.  CPU C is stuck waiting for CPU B to respond to the IPI.

Deadlock.

The solution is to use stop_machine_run instead of call_smp_function
(call_smp_function should not be called in situations where the CPUs may be
suspended).

Fix constant folding and poor optimization in byte swapping code

Constant folding does not work for the swabXX() byte swapping functions,
and the C versions optimize poorly.

Attempting to initialize a global variable to swab16(0x1234) or put
something like "case swab32(42):" in a switch statement will not compile.
It can work, swab.h just isn't doing it correctly.  This patch fixes that.

Contrary to the comment in asm-i386/byteorder.h, gcc does not recognize the
"C" version of swab16 and turn it into efficient code.  gcc can do this,
just not with the current code.  The simple function:

u16 foo(u16 x) { return swab16(x); }

Would compile to:
        movzwl  %ax, %eax
        movl    %eax, %edx
        shrl    $8, %eax
        sall    $8, %edx
        orl     %eax, %edx

With this patch, it will compile to:
        rolw    $8, %ax

I also attempted to document the maze different macros/inline functions
that are used to create the final product.

ipmi: allow shared interrupts

The IPMI driver used enable_irq and disable_irq when it got into situations

instead sends the messages to the BMC to perform this operation.  It also

12 years agofix quadratic behavior of shrink_dcache_parent()
Miklos Szeredi [Tue, 8 May 2007 07:23:46 +0000]
fix quadratic behavior of shrink_dcache_parent()

The time shrink_dcache_parent() takes, grows quadratically with the depth
of the tree under 'parent'.  This starts to get noticable at about 10,000.

These kinds of depths don't occur normally, and filesystems which invoke
shrink_dcache_parent() via d_invalidate() seem to have other depth
dependent timings, so it's not even easy to expose this problem.

However with FUSE it's easy to create a deep tree and d_invalidate()
will also get called.  This can make a syscall hang for a very long
time.

This is the original discovery of the problem by Russ Cox:

  http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.file-systems.fuse.devel/3826

The following patch fixes the quadratic behavior, by optionally allowing
prune_dcache() to prune ancestors of a dentry in one go, instead of doing
it one at a time.

Common code in dput() and prune_one_dentry() is extracted into a new helper
function d_kill().

shrink_dcache_parent() as well as shrink_dcache_sb() are converted to use
the ancestry-pruner option.  Only for shrink_dcache_memory() is this
behavior not desirable, so it keeps using the old algorithm.

12 years agoreduce size of task_struct on 64-bit machines
William Cohen [Tue, 8 May 2007 07:23:41 +0000]
reduce size of task_struct on 64-bit machines

This past week I was playing around with that pahole tool
(http://oops.ghostprotocols.net:81/acme/dwarves/) and looking at the size
of various struct in the kernel.  I was surprised by the size of the
task_struct on x86_64, approaching 4K.  I looked through the fields in
task_struct and found that a number of them were declared as "unsigned
long" rather than "unsigned int" despite them appearing okay as 32-bit
sized fields.  On x86_64 "unsigned long" ends up being 8 bytes in size and
forces 8 byte alignment.  Is there a reason there a reason they are
"unsigned long"?

The patch below drops the size of the struct from 3808 bytes (60 64-byte
cachelines) to 3760 bytes (59 64-byte cachelines).  A couple other fields
in the task struct take a signficant amount of space:

struct thread_struct       thread;               688
struct held_lock           held_locks[30];       1680

CONFIG_LOCKDEP is turned on in the .config

Cc: <linux-ext4@vger.kernel.org>

Andreas says:

This patch is now treating timestamps with the high bit set as negative
times (before Jan 1, 1970).  This means we lose 1/2 of the possible range
of timestamps (lopping off 68 years before unix timestamp overflow -
now only 30 years away :-) to handle the extremely rare case of setting
timestamps into the distant past.

If we are only interested in fixing the underflow case, we could just
limit the values to 0 instead of storing negative values.  At worst this
will skew the timestamp by a few hours for timezones in the far east
(files would still show Jan 1, 1970 in "ls -l" output).

That said, it seems 32-bit systems (mine at least) allow files to be set
into the past (01/01/1907 works fine) so it seems this patch is bringing
the x86_64 behaviour into sync with other kernels.

On the plus side, we have a patch that is ready to add nanosecond timestamps
to ext3 and as an added bonus adds 2 high bits to the on-disk timestamp so
this extends the maximum date to 2242.

uml: make hostfs_setattr() support operations on unlinked open files

This patch allows hostfs_setattr() to work on unlinked open files by calling
set_attr() (the userspace part) with the inode's fd.

Without this, applications that depend on doing attribute changes to unlinked
open files will fail.

It works by using the fd versions instead of the path ones (for example

available.

12 years agoAdd white list into modpost.c for memory hotplug code and ia64's machvec section

Add white list into modpost.c for memory hotplug code and ia64's machvec section

This patch is add white list into modpost.c for some functions and
ia64's section to fix section mismatchs.

  sparse_index_alloc() and zone_wait_table_init() calls bootmem allocator
  at boot time, and kmalloc/vmalloc at hotplug time. If config
  memory hotplug is on, there are references of bootmem allocater(init text)
  from them (normal text). This is cause of section mismatch.

  Bootmem is called by many functions and it must be
  used only at boot time. I think __init of them should keep for
  section mismatch check. So, I would like to register sparse_index_alloc()
  and zone_wait_table_init() into white list.

  In addition, ia64's .machvec section is function table of some platform
  dependent code. It is mixture of .init.text and normal text. These
  reference of __init functions are valid too.

12 years agoIncrease slab redzone to 64bits
David Woodhouse [Tue, 8 May 2007 07:22:59 +0000]
Increase slab redzone to 64bits

There are two problems with the existing redzone implementation.

Firstly, it's causing misalignment of structures which contain a 64-bit
integer, such as netfilter's 'struct ipt_entry' -- causing netfilter
modules to fail to load because of the misalignment.  (In particular, the
first check in
net/ipv4/netfilter/ip_tables.c::check_entry_size_and_hooks())

On ppc32 and sparc32, amongst others, __alignof__(uint64_t) == 8.

With slab debugging, we use 32-bit redzones. And allocated slab objects
aren't sufficiently aligned to hold a structure containing a uint64_t.

By _just_ setting ARCH_KMALLOC_MINALIGN to __alignof__(u64) we'd disable
redzone checks on those architectures.  By using 64-bit redzones we avoid that
loss of debugging, and also fix the other problem while we're at it.

When investigating this, I noticed that on 64-bit platforms we're using a
32-bit value of RED_ACTIVE/RED_INACTIVE in the 64-bit memory location set
aside for the redzone.  Which means that the four bytes immediately before
or after the allocated object at 0x00,0x00,0x00,0x00 for LE and BE
machines, respectively.  Which is probably not the most useful choice of
poison value.

One way to fix both of those at once is just to switch to 64-bit
redzones in all cases.

Jeff Dike [Sun, 6 May 2007 21:51:48 +0000]
uml: more page fault path trimming

More trimming of the page fault path.

Permissions are passed around in a single int rather than one bit per
int.  The permission values are copied from libc so that they can be
passed to mmap and mprotect without any further conversion.

The register sets used by do_syscall_stub and copy_context_skas0 are
initialized once, at boot time, rather than once per call.

wait_stub_done checks whether it is getting the signals it expects by
comparing the wait status to a mask containing bits for the signals of
interest rather than comparing individually to the signal numbers.  It
also has one check for a wait failure instead of two.  The caller is
expected to do the initial continue of the stub.  This gets rid of an
argument and some logic.  The fname argument is gone, as that can be
had from a stack trace.

user_signal() is collapsed into userspace() as it is basically one or
two lines of code afterwards.

The physical memory remapping stuff is gone, as it is unused.

flush_tlb_page is inlined.

uml: speed page fault path

Give the page fault code a specialized path.  There is only one page to look

There's only going to be one host operation, so there are no opportunities for
merging.  So, we go straight to the pte we want, figure out what needs doing,
and do it.

While I was in here, I fixed the wart where the address passed to unmap was a
void *, but an unsigned long to map and protect.

This gives me just under 10% on a kernel build.

uml: don't try to handle signals on initial process stack

Code running on the initial UML stack can't receive or process signals since
current must be valid when IRQs are handled, and there is no current for this
stack.

So, instead of using UML_LONGJMP and UML_SETJMP, which are careful to save and
restore signal state, and, as a side-effect, handle any deferred signals,
start_idle_thread must use the bare equivalents, which don't do anything with
signals.
