puts all the logic in a new function, check_mem_permission().

place, with clear comments.

The old code called security_ptrace() twice on successful checks, once in
MAY_PTRACE() and once in __ptrace_may_attach().  Now it's only called once,

12 years agoprocfs task exe symlink
Matt Helsley [Tue, 29 Apr 2008 08:01:36 +0000]
procfs task exe symlink

The kernel implements readlink of /proc/pid/exe by getting the file from
the first executable VMA.  Then the path to the file is reconstructed and
reported as the result.

Because of the VMA walk the code is slightly different on nommu systems.
This patch avoids separate /proc/pid/exe code on nommu systems.  Instead of
walking the VMAs to find the first executable file-backed VMA we store a
reference to the exec'd file in the mm_struct.

That reference would prevent the filesystem holding the executable file
from being unmounted even after unmapping the VMAs.  So we track the number
of VM_EXECUTABLE VMAs and drop the new reference when the last one is
unmapped.  This avoids pinning the mounted filesystem.

David Howells [Tue, 29 Apr 2008 08:01:31 +0000]
keys: don't generate user and user session keyrings unless they're accessed

Don't generate the per-UID user and user session keyrings unless they're
explicitly accessed.  This solves a problem during a login process whereby
set*uid() is called before the SELinux PAM module, resulting in the per-UID
keyrings having the wrong security labels.

This also cures the problem of multiple per-UID keyrings sometimes appearing
due to PAM modules (including pam_keyinit) setuiding and causing user_structs
to come into and go out of existence whilst the session keyring pins the user
keyring.  This is achieved by first searching for extant per-UID keyrings
before inventing new ones.

The serial bound argument is also dropped from find_keyring_by_name() as it's
not currently made use of (setting it to 0 disables the feature).

 (*) Get the LSM security context attached to a key.

long keyctl(KEYCTL_GET_SECURITY, key_serial_t key, char *buffer,
    size_t buflen)

     This function returns a string that represents the LSM security context
     attached to a key in the buffer provided.

     Unless there's an error, it always returns the amount of data it could
     produce, even if that's too big for the buffer, but it won't copy more
     than requested to userspace. If the buffer pointer is NULL then no copy
     will take place.

     A NUL character is included at the end of the string if the buffer is
     sufficiently big.  This is included in the returned count.  If no LSM is
     in force then an empty string will be returned.

     A process must have view permission on the key for this function to be
     successful.

keys: check starting keyring as part of search

Check the starting keyring as part of the search to (a) see if that is what
we're searching for, and (b) to check it is still valid for searching.

The scenario: User in process A does things that cause things to be created in
its process session keyring.  The user then does an su to another user and
starts a new process, B.  The two processes now share the same process session
keyring.

Process B does an NFS access which results in an upcall to gssd.  When gssd
attempts to instantiate the context key (to be linked into the process session
keyring), it is denied access even though it has an authorization key.

The order of calls is:

   keyctl_instantiate_key()
      lookup_user_key()     (the default: case)
         search_process_keyrings(current)
    search_process_keyrings(rka->context)   (recursive call)
       keyring_search_aux()

keyring_search_aux() verifies the keys and keyrings underneath the top-level
keyring it is given, but that top-level keyring is neither fully validated nor
checked to see if it is the thing being searched for.

This patch changes keyring_search_aux() to:
1) do more validation on the top keyring it is given and
2) check whether that top-level keyring is the thing being searched for

Serge E. Hallyn [Tue, 29 Apr 2008 08:01:00 +0000]
ipc: sysvsem: refuse clone(CLONE_SYSVSEM|CLONE_NEWIPC)

CLONE_NEWIPC|CLONE_SYSVSEM interaction isn't handled properly.  This can cause
a kernel memory corruption.  CLONE_NEWIPC must detach from the existing undo
lists.

Fix, part 3: refuse clone(CLONE_SYSVSEM|CLONE_NEWIPC).

With unshare, specifying CLONE_SYSVSEM means unshare the sysvsem.  So it seems
reasonable that CLONE_NEWIPC without CLONE_SYSVSEM would just imply
CLONE_SYSVSEM.

However with clone, specifying CLONE_SYSVSEM means *share* the sysvsem.  So
calling clone(CLONE_SYSVSEM|CLONE_NEWIPC) is explicitly asking for something
we can't allow.  So return -EINVAL in that case.

ipc: sysvsem: force unshare(CLONE_SYSVSEM) when CLONE_NEWIPC

sys_unshare(CLONE_NEWIPC) doesn't handle the undo lists properly, this can
cause a kernel memory corruption.  CLONE_NEWIPC must detach from the existing
undo lists.

Fix, part 2: perform an implicit CLONE_SYSVSEM in CLONE_NEWIPC.  CLONE_NEWIPC
creates a new IPC namespace, the task cannot access the existing semaphore
arrays after the unshare syscall.  Thus the task can/must detach from the
existing undo list entries, too.

This fixes the kernel corruption, because it makes it impossible that
undo records from two different namespaces are in sysvsem.undo_list.

Manfred Spraul [Tue, 29 Apr 2008 08:00:57 +0000]
ipc: sysvsem: implement sys_unshare(CLONE_SYSVSEM)

sys_unshare(CLONE_NEWIPC) doesn't handle the undo lists properly, this can
cause a kernel memory corruption.  CLONE_NEWIPC must detach from the existing
undo lists.

Fix, part 1: add support for sys_unshare(CLONE_SYSVSEM)

The original reason to not support it was the potential (inevitable?)
confusion due to the fact that sys_unshare(CLONE_SYSVSEM) has the
inverse meaning of clone(CLONE_SYSVSEM).

Our two most reasonable options then appear to be (1) fully support
CLONE_SYSVSEM, or (2) continue to refuse explicit CLONE_SYSVSEM,
but always do it anyway on unshare(CLONE_SYSVSEM).  This patch does
(1).

Changelog:
Apr 16: SEH: switch to Manfred's alternative patch which
removes the unshare_semundo() function which
always refused CLONE_SYSVSEM.

IPC: consolidate all xxxctl_down() functions

semctl_down(), msgctl_down() and shmctl_down() are used to handle the same set

ipc: re-enable msgmni automatic recomputing msgmni if set to negative

The enhancement as asked for by Yasunori: if msgmni is set to a negative
value, register it back into the ipcns notifier chain.

A new interface has been added to the notification mechanism:
notifier_chain_cond_register() registers a notifier block only if not already
registered.  With that new interface we avoid taking care of the states
changes in procfs.

12 years agoipc: scale msgmni to the amount of lowmem
Nadia Derbey [Tue, 29 Apr 2008 08:00:39 +0000]
ipc: scale msgmni to the amount of lowmem

On large systems we'd like to allow a larger number of message queues.  In
some cases up to 32K.  However simply setting MSGMNI to a larger value may
cause problems for smaller systems.

The first patch of this series introduces a default maximum number of message
queue ids that scales with the amount of lowmem.

Since msgmni is per namespace and there is no amount of memory dedicated to
each namespace so far, the second patch of this series scales msgmni to the
number of ipc namespaces too.

Since msgmni depends on the amount of memory, it becomes necessary to
recompute it upon memory add/remove.  In the 4th patch, memory hotplug
management is added: a notifier block is registered into the memory hotplug
notifier chain for the ipc subsystem.  Since the ipc namespaces are not linked
together, they have their own notification chain: one notifier_block is
defined per ipc namespace.  Each time an ipc namespace is created (removed) it
registers (unregisters) its notifier block in (from) the ipcns chain.  The
callback routine registered in the memory chain invokes the ipcns notifier
chain with the IPCNS_MEMCHANGE event.  Each callback routine registered in the
ipcns namespace, in turn, recomputes msgmni for the owning namespace.

The 5th patch makes it possible to keep the memory hotplug notifier chain's
lock for a lesser amount of time: instead of directly notifying the ipcns
notifier chain upon memory add/remove, a work item is added to the global
workqueue.  When activated, this work item is the one who notifies the ipcns
notifier chain.

Since msgmni depends on the number of ipc namespaces, it becomes necessary to
recompute it upon ipc namespace creation / removal.  The 6th patch uses the
ipc namespace notifier chain for that purpose: that chain is notified each
time an ipc namespace is created or removed.  This makes it possible to
recompute msgmni for all the namespaces each time one of them is created or
removed.

When msgmni is explicitely set from userspace, we should avoid recomputing it
upon memory add/remove or ipcns creation/removal.  This is what the 7th patch
does: it simply unregisters the ipcns callback routine as soon as msgmni has
been changed from procfs or sysctl().

Even if msgmni is set by hand, it should be possible to make it back
automatically recomputed upon memory add/remove or ipcns creation/removal.
This what is achieved in patch 8: if set to a negative value, msgmni is added
back to the ipcns notifier chain, making it automatically recomputed again.

This patch:

Compute msg_ctlmni to make it scale with the amount of lowmem.  msg_ctlmni is
now set to make the message queues occupy 1/32 of the available lowmem.

Some cleaning has also been done for the MSGPOOL constant: the msgctl man page
says it's not used, but it also defines it as a size in bytes (the code
expresses it in Kbytes).

workqueues: shrink cpu_populated_map when CPU dies

When cpu_populated_map was introduced, it was supposed that cwq->thread can
survive after CPU_DEAD, that is why we never shrink cpu_populated_map.

This is not very nice, we can safely remove the already dead CPU from the map.
 The only required change is that destroy_workqueue() must hold the hotplug
lock until it destroys all cwq->thread's, to protect the cpu_populated_map.
We could make the local copy of cpu mask and drop the lock, but
sizeof(cpumask_t) may be very large.

Also, fix the comment near queue_work().  Unless _cpu_down() happens we do
guarantee the cpu-affinity of the work_struct, and we have users which rely on
this.

12 years agomemcgroup: use vmalloc for mem_cgroup allocation
KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki [Tue, 29 Apr 2008 08:00:24 +0000]
memcgroup: use vmalloc for mem_cgroup allocation

On ia64, this kmalloc() requires order-4 pages.  But this is not necessary to
be physically contiguous.  For big mem_cgroup, vmalloc is better.  For small
ones, kmalloc is used.

12 years agomemcg: remove redundant function calls

memcg: remove redundant function calls

remove_list/add_list uses page_cgroup_zoneinfo() in it.

So, it's called twice before and after lock.

mz = page_cgroup_zoneinfo();
lock();
mz = page_cgroup_zoneinfo();
....
unlock();

And address of mz never changes.

This is not good. This patch fixes this behavior.

12 years agomemcgroup: implement failcounter reset
Pavel Emelyanov [Tue, 29 Apr 2008 08:00:21 +0000]
memcgroup: implement failcounter reset

This is a very common requirement from people using the resource accounting
facilities (not only memcgroup but also OpenVZ beancounters).  They want to
put the cgroup in an initial state without re-creating it.

For example after re-configuring a group people want to observe how this new
configuration fits the group needs without saving the previous failcnt value.

Merge two resets into one mem_cgroup_reset() function to demonstrate how
multiplexing work.

Besides, I have plans to move the files, that correspond to res_counter to the
res_counter.c file and somehow "import" them into controller.  I don't know
how to make it gracefully yet, but merging resets of max_usage and failcnt in
one function will be there for sure.

12 years agomemcgroup: move memory controller allocations to their own slabs
Balbir Singh [Tue, 29 Apr 2008 08:00:19 +0000]
memcgroup: move memory controller allocations to their own slabs

Move the memory controller data structure page_cgroup to its own slab cache.
It saves space on the system, allocations are not necessarily pushed to order
of 2 and should provide performance benefits.  Users who disable the memory
controller can also double check that the memory controller is not allocating
page_cgroup's.

NOTE: Hugh Dickins brought up the issue of whether we want to mark page_cgroup
as __GFP_MOVABLE or __GFP_RECLAIMABLE.  I don't think there is an easy answer
at the moment.  page_cgroup's are associated with user pages, they can be
reclaimed once the user page has been reclaimed, so it might make sense to
mark them as __GFP_RECLAIMABLE.  For now, I am leaving the marking to default
values that the slab allocator uses.

arbitrary resource (and it already does this for memory controller).

However, it is about to be used in other resources controllers (swap, kernel
memory, networking, etc), so provide a doc describing how to work with it.
This will eliminate all the possible future duplications in the appropriate

12 years agocgroups: add an owner to the mm_struct
Balbir Singh [Tue, 29 Apr 2008 08:00:16 +0000]
cgroups: add an owner to the mm_struct

Remove the mem_cgroup member from mm_struct and instead adds an owner.

This approach was suggested by Paul Menage.  The advantage of this approach
is that, once the mm->owner is known, using the subsystem id, the cgroup
can be determined.  It also allows several control groups that are
virtually grouped by mm_struct, to exist independent of the memory
controller i.e., without adding mem_cgroup's for each controller, to
mm_struct.

A new config option CONFIG_MM_OWNER is added and the memory resource
controller selects this config option.

This patch also adds cgroup callbacks to notify subsystems when mm->owner
changes.  The mm_cgroup_changed callback is called with the task_lock() of
the new task held and is called just prior to changing the mm->owner.

I am indebted to Paul Menage for the several reviews of this patchset and
helping me make it lighter and simpler.

This patch was tested on a powerpc box, it was compiled with both the
MM_OWNER config turned on and off.

After the thread group leader exits, it's moved to init_css_state by
cgroup_exit(), thus all future charges from runnings threads would be
redirected to the init_css_set's subsystem.

12 years agocgroups: implement device whitelist
Serge E. Hallyn [Tue, 29 Apr 2008 08:00:10 +0000]
cgroups: implement device whitelist

Implement a cgroup to track and enforce open and mknod restrictions on device
files.  A device cgroup associates a device access whitelist with each cgroup.
 A whitelist entry has 4 fields.  'type' is a (all), c (char), or b (block).
'all' means it applies to all types and all major and minor numbers.  Major
and minor are either an integer or * for all.  Access is a composition of r
(read), w (write), and m (mknod).

The root device cgroup starts with rwm to 'all'.  A child devcg gets a copy of
the parent.  Admins can then remove devices from the whitelist or add new
entries.  A child cgroup can never receive a device access which is denied its
parent.  However when a device access is removed from a parent it will not
also be removed from the child(ren).

An entry is added using devices.allow, and removed using
devices.deny.  For instance

echo 'c 1:3 mr' > /cgroups/1/devices.allow

allows cgroup 1 to read and mknod the device usually known as
/dev/null.  Doing

echo a > /cgroups/1/devices.deny

will remove the default 'a *:* mrw' entry.

CAP_SYS_ADMIN is needed to change permissions or move another task to a new
cgroup.  A cgroup may not be granted more permissions than the cgroup's parent
has.  Any task can move itself between cgroups.  This won't be sufficient, but
we can decide the best way to adequately restrict movement later.
