At that point we can't do almost nothing with them.  They can be opened
with O_PATH, we can manipulate such descriptors with dup(), etc. and
we can see them in /proc/*/{fd,fdinfo}/*.

We can't (and won't be able to) follow /proc/*/fd/* symlinks for those;
there's simply not enough information for pathname resolution to go on

9 years agoNew kind of open files - "location only".
Al Viro [Sun, 13 Mar 2011 07:51:11 +0000]
New kind of open files - "location only".

New flag for open(2) - O_PATH.  Semantics:
* pathname is resolved, but the file itself is _NOT_ opened
as far as filesystem is concerned.
* almost all operations on the resulting descriptors shall
fail with -EBADF.  Exceptions are:
1) operations on descriptors themselves (i.e.
close(), dup(), dup2(), dup3(), fcntl(fd, F_DUPFD),
fcntl(fd, F_DUPFD_CLOEXEC, ...), fcntl(fd, F_GETFD),
fcntl(fd, F_SETFD, ...))
2) fcntl(fd, F_GETFL), for a common non-destructive way to
check if descriptor is open
3) "dfd" arguments of ...at(2) syscalls, i.e. the starting
points of pathname resolution
* closing such descriptor does *NOT* affect dnotify or
posix locks.
* permissions are checked as usual along the way to file;
no permission checks are applied to the file itself.  Of course,
giving such thing to syscall will result in permission checks (at
the moment it means checking that starting point of ....at() is
a directory and caller has exec permissions on it).

fget() and fget_light() return NULL on such descriptors; use of
fget_raw() and fget_raw_light() is needed to get them.  That protects
existing code from dealing with those things.

There are two things still missing (they come in the next commits):
one is handling of symlinks (right now we refuse to open them that
way; see the next commit for semantics related to those) and another
is descriptor passing via SCM_RIGHTS datagrams.

No point messing with passing shitloads of "operation mode" arguments
to do_open() one by one, especially since they are not going to change
during do_filp_open().  Collect them into a struct, fill it and pass

9 years agofs/dcache: allow d_obtain_alias() to return unhashed dentries
J. Bruce Fields [Tue, 18 Jan 2011 20:45:09 +0000]
fs/dcache: allow d_obtain_alias() to return unhashed dentries

Without this patch, inodes are not promptly freed on last close of an
unlinked file by an nfs client:

client$ mount -tnfs4 server:/export/ /mnt/
client$ tail -f /mnt/FOO
...
server$ df -i /export
server$ rm /export/FOO
(^C the tail -f)
server$ df -i /export
server$ echo 2 >/proc/sys/vm/drop_caches
server$ df -i /export

the df's will show that the inode is not freed on the filesystem until
the last step, when it could have been freed after killing the client's
tail -f. On-disk data won't be deallocated either, leading to possible
spurious ENOSPC.

This occurs because when the client does the close, it arrives in a
compound with a putfh and a close, processed like:

- putfh: look up the filehandle. ┬áThe only alias found for the
  inode will be DCACHE_UNHASHED alias referenced by the filp
  this, so it creates a new DCACHE_DISCONECTED dentry and
  returns that instead.
- close: closes the existing filp, which is destroyed
  immediately by dput() since it's DCACHE_UNHASHED.
- end of the compound: release the reference
  to the current filehandle, and dput() the new
  DCACHE_DISCONECTED dentry, which gets put on the
  unused list instead of being destroyed immediately.

Nick Piggin suggested fixing this by allowing d_obtain_alias to return
the unhashed dentry that is referenced by the filp, instead of making it
create a new dentry.

Leave __d_find_alias() alone to avoid changing behavior of other
callers.

Also nfsd doesn't need all the checks of __d_find_alias(); any dentry,
hashed or unhashed, disconnected or not, should work.

Vasiliy Kulikov [Tue, 1 Mar 2011 21:33:13 +0000]
net: don't allow CAP_NET_ADMIN to load non-netdev kernel modules

Since a8f80e8ff94ecba629542d9b4b5f5a8ee3eb565c any process with
CAP_NET_ADMIN may load any module from /lib/modules/.  This doesn't mean
that CAP_NET_ADMIN is a superset of CAP_SYS_MODULE as modules are
limited to /lib/modules/**.  However, CAP_NET_ADMIN capability shouldn't
allow anybody load any module not related to networking.

This patch restricts an ability of autoloading modules to netdev modules
with explicit aliases.  This fixes CVE-2011-1019.

Arnd Bergmann suggested to leave untouched the old pre-v2.6.32 behavior
of loading netdev modules by name (without any prefix) for processes
with CAP_SYS_MODULE to maintain the compatibility with network scripts
that use autoloading netdev modules by aliases like "eth0", "wlan0".

Currently there are only three users of the feature in the upstream
kernel: ipip, ip_gre and sit.

powerpc/pseries: Disable VPNH feature

This feature triggers nasty races in the scheduler between the
rebuilding of the topology and the load balancing code, causing
the machine to hang.

Disable it for now until the races are fixed.

Benjamin Herrenschmidt [Sun, 6 Mar 2011 18:02:31 +0000]
powerpc/iseries: Fix early init access to lppaca

The combination of commit

8154c5d22d91cd16bd9985b0638c8957e4688d0e and
93c22703efa72c7527dbd586d1951c1f4a85fd70

Broke boot on iSeries.

The problem is that iSeries very early boot code, which generates
the device-tree and runs before our normal early initializations
does need access the lppaca's very early, before the PACA array is
initialized, and in fact even before the boot PACA has been
initialized (it contains all 0's at this stage).

However, the first patch above makes that code use the new
llpaca_of(cpu) accessor, which itself is changed by the second patch to
use the PACA array.

We fix that by reverting iSeries to directly dereferencing the array. In
addition, we fix all iterators in the iSeries code to always skip CPU
whose number is above 63 which is the maximum size of that array and
the maximum number of supported CPUs on these machines.

Additionally, we make sure the boot_paca is properly initialized
in our early startup code.

the PCC interface command to "get frequency". Otherwise, the driver

perf symbols: Avoid resolving [kernel.kallsyms] to real path for buildid cache

kallsyms has a virtual file name [kernel.kallsyms].  Currently, it can't
be added to buildid cache successfully because the code
(build_id_cache__add_s) tries to resolve [kernel.kallsyms] to a real
absolute pathname and that fails.

Fixes it by not resolving it and just use the name [kernel.kallsyms].
So dir ~/.debug/[kernel.kallsyms] is created.

mmc: fix CONFIG_MMC_UNSAFE_RESUME regression

30201e7f3 ("mmc: skip detection of nonremovable cards on rescan")
allowed skipping detection of nonremovable cards on mmc_rescan().
The intention was to only skip detection of hardwired cards that
cannot be removed, so make sure this is indeed the case by directly
checking for (lack of) MMC_CAP_NONREMOVABLE, instead of using
mmc_card_is_removable(), which is overloaded with
CONFIG_MMC_UNSAFE_RESUME semantics.

The user-visible symptom of the bug this patch fixes is that no
"mmc: card XXXX removed" message appears in dmesg when a card is
removed and CONFIG_MMC_UNSAFE_RESUME=y.

Al Viro [Tue, 8 Mar 2011 06:25:28 +0000]
unfuck proc_sysctl ->d_compare()

a) struct inode is not going to be freed under ->d_compare();
however, the thing PROC_I(inode)->sysctl points to just might.
Fortunately, it's enough to make freeing that sucker delayed,
provided that we don't step on its ->unregistering, clear
the pointer to it in PROC_I(inode) before dropping the reference
and check if it's NULL in ->d_compare().

b) I'm not sure that we *can* walk into NULL inode here (we recheck
dentry->seq between verifying that it's still hashed / fetching
dentry->d_inode and passing it to ->d_compare() and there's no
negative hashed dentries in /proc/sys/*), but if we can walk into
that, we really should not have ->d_compare() return 0 on it!
Said that, I really suspect that this check can be simply killed.
