SELinux: Bug fix in polidydb_destroy

This patch fixes two bugs in policydb_destroy. Two list pointers
(policydb.ocontexts[i] and policydb.genfs) were not being reset to NULL when
the lists they pointed to were being freed. This caused a problem when the
initial policy load failed, as the policydb being destroyed was not a
temporary new policydb that was thrown away, but rather was the global
(active) policydb. Consequently, later functions, particularly
sys_bind->selinux_socket_bind->security_node_sid and
do_rw_proc->selinux_sysctl->selinux_proc_get_sid->security_genfs_sid tried
to dereference memory that had previously been freed.

IPsec: fix handling of errors for socket policies

This treats the security errors encountered in the case of
socket policy matching, the same as how these are treated in
the case of main/sub policies, which is to return a full lookup

12 years agoIPsec: correct semantics for SELinux policy matching
Venkat Yekkirala [Thu, 5 Oct 2006 20:42:18 +0000]
IPsec: correct semantics for SELinux policy matching

Currently when an IPSec policy rule doesn't specify a security
context, it is assumed to be "unlabeled" by SELinux, and so
the IPSec policy rule fails to match to a flow that it would
otherwise match to, unless one has explicitly added an SELinux
policy rule allowing the flow to "polmatch" to the "unlabeled"
IPSec policy rules. In the absence of such an explicitly added
SELinux policy rule, the IPSec policy rule fails to match and
so the packet(s) flow in clear text without the otherwise applicable
xfrm(s) applied.

The above SELinux behavior violates the SELinux security notion of
"deny by default" which should actually translate to "encrypt by
default" in the above case.

This was first reported by Evgeniy Polyakov and the way James Morris
was seeing the problem was when connecting via IPsec to a
confined service on an SELinux box (vsftpd), which did not have the
appropriate SELinux policy permissions to send packets via IPsec.

With this patch applied, SELinux "polmatching" of flows Vs. IPSec
policy rules will only come into play when there's a explicit context
specified for the IPSec policy rule (which also means there's corresponding
SELinux policy allowing appropriate domains/flows to polmatch to this context).

Secondly, when a security module is loaded (in this case, SELinux), the
security_xfrm_policy_lookup() hook can return errors other than access denied,
such as -EINVAL.  We were not handling that correctly, and in fact
inverting the return logic and propagating a false "ok" back up to
xfrm_lookup(), which then allowed packets to pass as if they were not
associated with an xfrm policy.

The solution for this is to first ensure that errno values are
correctly propagated all the way back up through the various call chains
from security_xfrm_policy_lookup(), and handled correctly.

Then, flow_cache_lookup() is modified, so that if the policy resolver
fails (typically a permission denied via the security module), the flow
cache entry is killed rather than having a null policy assigned (which
indicates that the packet can pass freely).  This also forces any future
lookups for the same flow to consult the security module (e.g. SELinux)
for current security policy (rather than, say, caching the error on the
flow cache entry).

This patch: Fix the selinux side of things.

This makes sure SELinux polmatching of flow contexts to IPSec policy
rules comes into play only when an explicit context is associated
with the IPSec policy rule.

Also, this no longer defaults the context of a socket policy to
the context of the socket since the "no explicit context" case
is now handled properly.

12 years agoIPsec: propagate security module errors up from flow_cache_lookup
James Morris [Thu, 5 Oct 2006 20:42:27 +0000]
IPsec: propagate security module errors up from flow_cache_lookup

When a security module is loaded (in this case, SELinux), the
security_xfrm_policy_lookup() hook can return an access denied permission
(or other error).  We were not handling that correctly, and in fact
inverting the return logic and propagating a false "ok" back up to
xfrm_lookup(), which then allowed packets to pass as if they were not
associated with an xfrm policy.

The way I was seeing the problem was when connecting via IPsec to a
confined service on an SELinux box (vsftpd), which did not have the
appropriate SELinux policy permissions to send packets via IPsec.

The first SYNACK would be blocked, because of an uncached lookup via
flow_cache_lookup(), which would fail to resolve an xfrm policy because
the SELinux policy is checked at that point via the resolver.

However, retransmitted SYNACKs would then find a cached flow entry when
calling into flow_cache_lookup() with a null xfrm policy, which is
interpreted by xfrm_lookup() as the packet not having any associated
policy and similarly to the first case, allowing it to pass without
transformation.

The solution presented here is to first ensure that errno values are
correctly propagated all the way back up through the various call chains
from security_xfrm_policy_lookup(), and handled correctly.

Then, flow_cache_lookup() is modified, so that if the policy resolver
fails (typically a permission denied via the security module), the flow

[PATCH] fs/bio.c: tweaks

- Calculate a variable in bvec_alloc_bs() only once needed, not earlier
  (bio.o down from 18408 to 18376 Bytes, 32 Bytes saved, probably due to
  data locality improvements).

- Init variable idx to silence a gcc warning which already existed in the
  unmodified original base file (bvec_alloc_bs() handles idx correctly, so
  there's no need for the warning):

fs/bio.c: In function `bio_alloc_bioset':
fs/bio.c:169: warning: `idx' may be used uninitialized in this function

12 years ago[PATCH] VFS: Destroy the dentries contributed by a superblock on unmounting
David Howells [Wed, 11 Oct 2006 08:22:19 +0000]
[PATCH] VFS: Destroy the dentries contributed by a superblock on unmounting

The attached patch destroys all the dentries attached to a superblock in one go
by:

 (1) Destroying the tree rooted at s_root.

 (2) Destroying every entry in the anon list, one at a time.

 (3) Each entry in the anon list has its subtree consumed from the leaves
     inwards.

This reduces the amount of work generic_shutdown_super() does, and avoids
iterating through the dentry_unused list.

Note that locking is almost entirely absent in the shrink_dcache_for_umount*()
functions added by this patch.  This is because:

 (1) at the point the filesystem calls generic_shutdown_super(), it is not
     permitted to further touch the superblock's set of dentries, and nor may
     it remove aliases from inodes;

 (2) the dcache memory shrinker now skips dentries that are being unmounted;
     and

 (3) the superblock no longer has any external references through which the VFS
     can reach it.

Given these points, the only locking we need to do is when we remove dentries
from the unused list and the name hashes, which we do a directory's worth at a
time.

We also don't need to guard against reference counts going to zero unexpectedly
and removing bits of the tree we're working on as nothing else can call dput().

A cut down version of dentry_iput() has been folded into
shrink_dcache_for_umount_subtree() function.  Apart from not needing to unlock
things, it also doesn't need to check for inotify watches.

In this version of the patch, the complaint about a dentry still being in use
has been expanded from a single BUG_ON() and now gives much more information.

[PATCH] AUTOFS: Make sure all dentries refs are released before calling kill_anon_super()

Make sure all dentries refs are released before calling kill_anon_super() so
that the assumption that generic_shutdown_super() can completely destroy the
dentry tree for there will be no external references holds true.

What was being done in the put_super() superblock op, is now done in the
kill_sb() filesystem op instead, prior to calling kill_anon_super().

This makes the struct autofs_sb_info::root member variable redundant (since
sb->s_root is still available), and so that is removed.  The calls to
shrink_dcache_sb() are also removed since they're also redundant as
shrink_dcache_for_umount() will now be called after the cleanup routine.

Ingo Molnar [Wed, 11 Oct 2006 08:22:08 +0000]
[PATCH] lockdep: fix printk recursion logic

Bug reported and fixed by Tilman Schmidt <tilman@imap.cc>: if lockdep is
enabled then log messages make it to /var/log/messages belatedly.  The
reason is a missed wakeup of klogd.

Initially there was only a lockdep_internal() protection against lockdep
recursion within vprintk() - it grew the 'outer' lockdep_off()/on()
protection only later on.  But that lockdep_off() made the
release_console_sem() within vprintk() always happen under the
lockdep_internal() condition, causing the bug.

The right solution to remove the inner protection against recursion here -
the outer one is enough.

changes with respect to fd7bcea35e7efb108c34ee2b3840942a3749cadb. It
says

+   '.'  acquired while irqs enabled
+   '+'  acquired in irq context
+   '-'  acquired in process context with irqs disabled
+   '?'  read-acquired both with irqs enabled and in irq context
+

But the get_usage_chars() function does this for '-'
 if (class->usage_mask & LOCKF_ENABLED_HARDIRQS)
                        *c1 = '-';

So i guess what would be correct would be
'.'  acquired while irqs disabled
'+'  acquired in irq context
'-'  acquired with irqs enabled
'?' read acquired in irq context with irqs enabled.

[PATCH] bitmap: parse input from kernel and user buffers

lib/bitmap.c:bitmap_parse() is a library function that received as input a
user buffer.  This seemed to have originated from the way the write_proc
function of the /proc filesystem operates.

This has been reworked to not use kmalloc and eliminates a lot of
get_user() overhead by performing one access_ok before using __get_user().

We need to test if we are in kernel or user space (is_user) and access the
buffer differently.  We cannot use __get_user() to access kernel addresses
in all cases, for example in architectures with separate address space for
kernel and user.

This function will be useful for other uses as well; for example, taking
input for /sysfs instead of /proc, so it was changed to accept kernel
buffers.  We have this use for the Linux UWB project, as part as the
upcoming bandwidth allocator code.

Only a few routines used this function and they were changed too.

[PATCH] sched: likely profiling

This likely profiling is pretty fun. I found a few possible problems
in sched.c.

This patch may be not measurable, but when I did measure long ago,
nooping (un)likely cost a couple of % on scheduler heavy benchmarks, so
it all adds up.

Tweak some branch hints:

- the 2nd 64 bits in the bitmask is likely to be populated, because it
  contains the first 28 bits (nearly 3/4) of the normal priorities.
  (ratio of 669669:691 ~= 1000:1).

- it isn't unlikely that context switching switches to another process. it
  might be very rapidly switching to and from the idle process (ratio of
  475815:419004 and 471330:423544). Let the branch predictor decide.

- preempt_enable seems to be very often called in a nested preempt_disable
  or with interrupts disabled (ratio of 3567760:87965 ~= 40:1)

12 years ago[PATCH] ext2: errors behaviour fix
Vasily Averin [Wed, 11 Oct 2006 08:21:50 +0000]
[PATCH] ext2: errors behaviour fix

Current error behaviour for ext2 and ext3 filesystems does not fully
correspond to the documentation and should be fixed.

According to man 8 mount, ext2 and ext3 file systems allow to set one of 3
different on-errors behaviours:

  ---- start of quote man 8 mount ----

  errors=continue / errors=remount-ro / errors=panic

    Define the behaviour when an error is encountered.  (Either ignore
    errors and just mark the file system erroneous and continue, or remount
    the file system read-only, or panic and halt the system.) The default is
    set in the filesystem superblock, and can be changed using tune2fs(8).

  ---- end of quote ----

However EXT3_ERRORS_CONTINUE is not read from the superblock, and thus
ERRORS_CONT is not saved on the sbi->s_mount_opt.  It leads to the incorrect
handle of errors on ext3.

Then we've checked corresponding code in ext2 and discovered that it is buggy
as well:

- EXT2_ERRORS_CONTINUE is not read from the superblock (the same);

- parse_option() does not clean the alternative values and thus something
  like (ERRORS_CONT|ERRORS_RO) can be set;

- if options are omitted, parse_option() does not set any of these options.

Therefore it is possible to set any combination of these options on the ext2:

- none of them may be set: EXT2_ERRORS_CONTINUE on superblock / empty mount
  options;

- any of them may be set using mount options;

- 2 any options may be set: by using EXT2_ERRORS_RO/EXT2_ERRORS_PANIC on the
  superblock and other value in mount options;

- and finally all three options may be set by adding third option in remount.

Currently ext2 uses these values only in ext2_error() and it is not leading to
any noticeable troubles.  However somebody may be discouraged when he will try
to workaround EXT2_ERRORS_PANIC on the superblock by using errors=continue in
mount options.

This patch:

EXT2_ERRORS_CONTINUE should be read from the superblock as default value for
error behaviour.  parse_option() should clean the alternative options and
should not change default value taken from the superblock.

outside the maximum-addressable pagecache range (PAGE_SIZE * 4G bytes) then it
will accidentally truncate `index' and will then instnatiate a page at the

Davide Libenzi [Wed, 11 Oct 2006 08:21:44 +0000]
[PATCH] epoll_pwait()

Implement the epoll_pwait system call, that extend the event wait mechanism
with the same logic ppoll and pselect do.  The definition of epoll_pwait
is:

int epoll_pwait(int epfd, struct epoll_event *events, int maxevents,
                 int timeout, const sigset_t *sigmask, size_t sigsetsize);

The difference between the vanilla epoll_wait and epoll_pwait is that the
latter allows the caller to specify a signal mask to be set while waiting
for events.  Hence epoll_pwait will wait until either one monitored event,
or an unmasked signal happen.  If sigmask is NULL, the epoll_pwait system
call will act exactly like epoll_wait.  For the POSIX definition of
pselect, information is available here:

12 years ago[PATCH] uml: correct removal of pte_mkexec
Paolo 'Blaisorblade' Giarrusso [Wed, 11 Oct 2006 08:21:32 +0000]
[PATCH] uml: correct removal of pte_mkexec

Correct commit 5906e4171ad61ce68de95e51b773146707671f80 - this makes more
sense: we turn pte_mkexec + pte_wrprotect to pte_mkread.  However, due to a
bug in pte_mkread, it does the exact same thing as pte_mkwrite, so this patch
improves the code but does not change anything in practice.  The pte_mkread
bug is fixed separately, as it may have big impact.

[PATCH] uml: revert wrong patch

Andi Kleen pointed out that -mcmodel=kernel does not make sense for userspace
code and would stop everything from working, and pointed out the correct fix
for the original bug (not easy to do for me).

Reverts part of commit 06837504de7b4883e92af207dbbab4310d0db0ed.

[PATCH] mm: locks_freed fix

Move the lock debug checks below the page reserved checks.  Also, having
debug_check_no_locks_freed in kernel_map_pages is wrong.

[PATCH] mm: arch_free_page fix

After the PG_reserved check was added, arch_free_page was being called in the
wrong place (it could be called for a page we don't actually want to free).
Fix that.

We have a persistent dribble of reports of this BUG triggering.  Its extended
diagnostics were recently made conditional on CONFIG_DEBUG_VM, which was a bad
idea - we want to know about it.

[PATCH] mm: kevent threads: use MPOL_DEFAULT

Switch the memory policy of the kevent threads to MPOL_DEFAULT while
leaving the kzalloc of the workqueue structure on interleave.  This means
that all code executed in the context of the kevent thread is allocating
node local.
