11 years agoV3 file capabilities: alter behavior of cap_setpcap
Andrew Morgan [Thu, 18 Oct 2007 10:05:59 +0000]
V3 file capabilities: alter behavior of cap_setpcap

The non-filesystem capability meaning of CAP_SETPCAP is that a process, p1,
can change the capabilities of another process, p2.  This is not the
meaning that was intended for this capability at all, and this
implementation came about purely because, without filesystem capabilities,
there was no way to use capabilities without one process bestowing them on
another.

Since we now have a filesystem support for capabilities we can fix the
implementation of CAP_SETPCAP.

The most significant thing about this change is that, with it in effect, no
process can set the capabilities of another process.

The capabilities of a program are set via the capability convolution
rules:

   pI(post-exec) = pI(pre-exec)
   pP(post-exec) = (X(aka cap_bset) & fP) | (pI(post-exec) & fI)
   pE(post-exec) = fE ? pP(post-exec) : 0

at exec() time.  As such, the only influence the pre-exec() program can
have on the post-exec() program's capabilities are through the pI
capability set.

The correct implementation for CAP_SETPCAP (and that enabled by this patch)
is that it can be used to add extra pI capabilities to the current process
- to be picked up by subsequent exec()s when the above convolution rules
are applied.

Here is how it works:

Let's say we have a process, p. It has capability sets, pE, pP and pI.
Generally, p, can change the value of its own pI to pI' where

   (pI' & ~pI) & ~pP = 0.

That is, the only new things in pI' that were not present in pI need to
be present in pP.

The role of CAP_SETPCAP is basically to permit changes to pI beyond
the above:

   if (pE & CAP_SETPCAP) {
      pI' = anything; /* ie., even (pI' & ~pI) & ~pP != 0  */
   }

This capability is useful for things like login, which (say, via
pam_cap) might want to raise certain inheritable capabilities for use
by the children of the logged-in user's shell, but those capabilities
are not useful to or needed by the login program itself.

One such use might be to limit who can run ping. You set the
capabilities of the 'ping' program to be "= cap_net_raw+i", and then
only shells that have (pI & CAP_NET_RAW) will be able to run
it. Without CAP_SETPCAP implemented as described above, login(pam_cap)
would have to also have (pP & CAP_NET_RAW) in order to raise this
capability and pass it on through the inheritable set.

11 years agosysctl: deprecate sys_sysctl in a user space visible fashion.
Eric W. Biederman [Thu, 18 Oct 2007 10:05:58 +0000]
sysctl: deprecate sys_sysctl in a user space visible fashion.

After adding checking to register_sysctl_table and finding a whole new set
of bugs.  Missed by countless code reviews and testers I have finally lost
patience with the binary sysctl interface.

The binary sysctl interface has been sort of deprecated for years and
finding a user space program that uses the syscall is more difficult then
finding a needle in a haystack.  Problems continue to crop up, with the in
kernel implementation.  So since supporting something that no one uses is
silly, deprecate sys_sysctl with a sufficient grace period and notice that
the handful of user space applications that care can be fixed or replaced.

The /proc/sys sysctl interface that people use will continue to be
supported indefinitely.

This patch moves the tested warning about sysctls from the path where
sys_sysctl to a separate path called from both implementations of
sys_sysctl, and it adds a proper entry into
Documentation/feature-removal-schedule.

Allowing us to revisit this in a couple years time and actually kill
sys_sysctl.

a few false positives so this patch updates my logic to remove them.

- Don't complain about 0 ctl_names in sysctl_check_binary_path
  It is valid for someone to remove the sysctl binary interface
  and still keep the same sysctl proc interface.

- Count ctl_names and procnames as matching if they both don't
  exist.

- Only warn about missing min&max when the generic functions care.

11 years agosysctl: Error on bad sysctl tables
Eric W. Biederman [Thu, 18 Oct 2007 10:05:54 +0000]
sysctl: Error on bad sysctl tables

After going through the kernels sysctl tables several times it has become
clear that code review and testing is just not effective in prevent
problematic sysctl tables from being used in the stable kernel.  I certainly
can't seem to fix the problems as fast as they are introduced.

Therefore this patch adds sysctl_check_table which is called when a sysctl
table is registered and checks to see if we have a problematic sysctl table.

The biggest part of the code is the table of valid binary sysctl entries, but
since we have frozen our set of binary sysctls this table should not need to
change, and it makes it much easier to detect when someone unintentionally
adds a new binary sysctl value.

As best as I can determine all of the several hundred errors spewed on boot up
now are legitimate.

- In ipv6 ndisc_ifinfo_syctl_change so it doesn't depend on binary
  sysctl names for a function that works with proc.

- In neighbour.c reorder the table to put the possibly unused entries
  at the end so we can remove them by terminating the table early.

- In neighbour.c kill the entries with questionable binary sysctl
  handling behavior.

- In neighbour.c if we don't have a strategy routine remove the
  binary path.  So we don't the default sysctl strategy routine
  on data that is not ready for it.

11 years agosysctl: Factor out sysctl_data.
Eric W. Biederman [Thu, 18 Oct 2007 10:05:23 +0000]
sysctl: Factor out sysctl_data.

There as been no easy way to wrap the default sysctl strategy routine except
for returning 0.  Which is not always what we want.  The few instances I have
seen that want different behaviour have written their own version of
sysctl_data.  While not too hard it is unnecessary code and has the potential
for extra bugs.

So to make these situations easier and make that part of sysctl more symetric
I have factord sysctl_data out of do_sysctl_strategy and exported as a
function everyone can use.

Further having sysctl_data be an explicit function makes checking for badly
formed sysctl tables much easier.

11 years agoVFS: make notify_change pass ATTR_KILL_S*ID to setattr operations
Jeff Layton [Thu, 18 Oct 2007 10:05:20 +0000]
VFS: make notify_change pass ATTR_KILL_S*ID to setattr operations

When an unprivileged process attempts to modify a file that has the setuid or
setgid bits set, the VFS will attempt to clear these bits.  The VFS will set
the ATTR_KILL_SUID or ATTR_KILL_SGID bits in the ia_valid mask, and then call
notify_change to clear these bits and set the mode accordingly.

With a networked filesystem (NFS and CIFS in particular but likely others),
the client machine or process may not have credentials that allow for setting
the mode.  In some situations, this can lead to file corruption, an operation
failing outright because the setattr fails, or to races that lead to a mode
change being reverted.

In this situation, we'd like to just leave the handling of this to the server
and ignore these bits.  The problem is that by the time the setattr op is
called, the VFS has already reinterpreted the ATTR_KILL_* bits into a mode
change.  The setattr operation has no way to know its intent.

The following patch fixes this by making notify_change no longer clear the
ATTR_KILL_SUID and ATTR_KILL_SGID bits in the ia_valid before handing it off
to the setattr inode op.  setattr can then check for the presence of these
bits, and if they're set it can assume that the mode change was only for the
purposes of clearing these bits.

This means that we now have an implicit assumption that notify_change is never
called with ATTR_MODE and either ATTR_KILL_S*ID bit set.  Nothing currently
enforces that, so this patch also adds a BUG() if that occurs.

  (We cannot change cache_add_dev() from CPU_ONLINE event handler

11 years agocpu hotplug: cpu: deliver CPU_UP_CANCELED only to NOTIFY_OKed callbacks with CPU_UP_P...
Akinobu Mita [Thu, 18 Oct 2007 10:05:12 +0000]
cpu hotplug: cpu: deliver CPU_UP_CANCELED only to NOTIFY_OKed callbacks with CPU_UP_PREPARE

The functions in a CPU notifier chain is called with CPU_UP_PREPARE event
before making the CPU online.  If one of the callback returns NOTIFY_BAD, it
stops to deliver CPU_UP_PREPARE event, and CPU online operation is canceled.
Then CPU_UP_CANCELED event is delivered to the functions in a CPU notifier
chain again.

This CPU_UP_CANCELED event is delivered to the functions which have been
called with CPU_UP_PREPARE, not delivered to the functions which haven't been
called with CPU_UP_PREPARE.

The problem that makes existing cpu hotplug error handlings complex is that
the CPU_UP_CANCELED event is delivered to the function that has returned
NOTIFY_BAD, too.

Usually we don't expect to call destructor function against the object that
has failed to initialize.  It is like:

err = register_something();
if (err) {
unregister_something();
return err;
}

So it is natural to deliver CPU_UP_CANCELED event only to the functions that
have returned NOTIFY_OK with CPU_UP_PREPARE event and not to call the function
that have returned NOTIFY_BAD.  This is what this patch is doing.

Otherwise, every cpu hotplug notifiler has to track whether notifiler event is
failed or not for each cpu.  (drivers/base/topology.c is doing this with
topology_dev_map)

Similary this patch makes same thing with CPU_DOWN_PREPARE and CPU_DOWN_FAILED
evnets.

On platforms that copy sys_tz into the vdso (currently only x86_64, soon to
include powerpc), it is possible for the vdso to get out of sync if a user

updatee their copy in the vdso.

11 years agoHibernation: Enter platform hibernation state in a consistent way
Rafael J. Wysocki [Thu, 18 Oct 2007 10:04:56 +0000]
Hibernation: Enter platform hibernation state in a consistent way

Make hibernation_platform_enter() execute the enter-a-sleep-state sequence
instead of the mixed shutdown-with-entering-S4 thing.

Replace the shutting down of devices done by kernel_shutdown_prepare(), before
entering the ACPI S4 sleep state, with suspending them and the shutting down
of sysdevs with calling device_power_down(PMSG_SUSPEND) (just like before
entering S1 or S3, but the target state is now S4).   Also, disable the
nonboot CPUs before entering the sleep state (S4), which generally always is a
good idea.

This is known to fix the "double disk spin down during hibernation" on some
machines, eg.  HPC nx6325 (ref.  http://lkml.org/lkml/2007/8/7/316 and the
following thread).   Moreover, it has been reported to make
/sys/class/rtc/rtc0/wakealarm work correctly with hibernation for some users.
It also generally causes the hibernation state (ACPI S4) to be entered faster.

11 years agoHibernation: Check if ACPI is enabled during restore in the right place
Rafael J. Wysocki [Thu, 18 Oct 2007 10:04:55 +0000]
Hibernation: Check if ACPI is enabled during restore in the right place

The following scenario leads to total confusion of the platform firmware on
some boxes (eg. HPC nx6325):
* Hibernate with ACPI enabled
* Resume passing "acpi=off" to the boot kernel

To prevent this from happening it's necessary to check if ACPI is enabled (and
enable it if that's not the case) _right_ _after_ control has been transfered
from the boot kernel to the image kernel, before device_power_up() is called
(ie.  with interrupts disabled).   Enabling ACPI after calling
device_power_up() turns out to be insufficient.

For this reason, introduce new hibernation callback ->leave() that will be
executed before device_power_up() by the restored image kernel.   To make it
work, it also is necessary to move swsusp_suspend() from swsusp.c to disk.c
(it's name is changed to "create_image", which is more up to the point).

11 years agoHibernation: Arbitrary boot kernel support on x86_64
Rafael J. Wysocki [Thu, 18 Oct 2007 10:04:53 +0000]
Hibernation: Arbitrary boot kernel support on x86_64

Make it possible to restore a hibernation image on x86_64 with the help of a
kernel different from the one in the image.

The idea is to split the core restoration code into two separate parts and to
place each of them in a different page.   The first part belongs to the boot
kernel and is executed as the last step of the image kernel's memory
restoration procedure.   Before being executed, it is relocated to a safe page
that won't be overwritten while copying the image kernel pages.

The final operation performed by it is a jump to the second part of the core
restoration code that belongs to the image kernel and has just been restored.
This code makes the CPU switch to the image kernel's page tables and restores
the state of general purpose registers (including the stack pointer) from
before the hibernation.

The main issue with this idea is that in order to jump to the second part of
the core restoration code the boot kernel needs to know its address.
 However, this address may be passed to it in the image header.   Namely, the
part of the image header previously used for checking if the version of the
image kernel is correct can be replaced with some architecture specific data
that will allow the boot kernel to jump to the right address within the image
kernel.   These data should also be used for checking if the image kernel is
compatible with the boot kernel (as far as the memory restroration procedure
is concerned).  It can be done, for example, with the help of a "magic" value
that has to be equal in both kernels, so that they can be regarded as
compatible.

11 years agoserial: turn serial console suspend a boot rather than compile time option
Andres Salomon [Thu, 18 Oct 2007 10:04:50 +0000]
serial: turn serial console suspend a boot rather than compile time option

Currently, there's a CONFIG_DISABLE_CONSOLE_SUSPEND that allows one to stop
the serial console from being suspended when the rest of the machine goes
to sleep.  This is incredibly useful for debugging power management-related
things; however, having it as a compile-time option has proved to be
incredibly inconvenient for us (OLPC).  There are plenty of times that we
want serial console to not suspend, but for the most part we'd like serial
console to be suspended.

This drops CONFIG_DISABLE_CONSOLE_SUSPEND, and replaces it with a kernel
boot parameter (no_console_suspend).  By default, the serial console will
be suspended along with the rest of the system; by passing
'no_console_suspend' to the kernel during boot, serial console will remain
alive during suspend.

For now, this is pretty serial console specific; further fixes could be
applied to make this work for things like netconsole.

11 years agofreezer: do not sync filesystems from freeze_processes
Rafael J. Wysocki [Thu, 18 Oct 2007 10:04:44 +0000]
freezer: do not sync filesystems from freeze_processes

The syncing of filesystems from within the freezer is generally not needed.
Also, if there's an ext3 filesystem loopback-mounted from a FUSE one, the
syncing results in writes to it and deadlocks.  Similarly, it will deadlock if
FUSE implements sync.

Change freeze_processes() so that it doesn't execute sys_sync() and make the
suspend and hibernation code path sync filesystems independently of the
freezer.

freezer: document relationship with memory shrinking

One important reason to freeze tasks, which is that we don't want them to

documented.  Fix it.

Rafael J. Wysocki [Thu, 18 Oct 2007 10:04:42 +0000]
PM: Rework struct hibernation_ops

During hibernation we also need to tell the ACPI core that we're going to put
the system into the S4 sleep state.  For this reason, an additional method in
'struct hibernation_ops' is needed, playing the role of set_target() in
'struct platform_suspend_operations'.  Moreover, the role of the .prepare()
method is now different, so it's better to introduce another method, that in
general may be different from .prepare(), that will be used to prepare the
platform for creating the hibernation image (.prepare() is used anyway to
notify the platform that we're going to enter the low power state after the
image has been saved).

The name of 'struct pm_ops' suggests that it is related to the power

its name should indicate what this structure is used for, so it seems

Move the definition of 'struct pm_ops' and related functions from <linux/pm.h>
to <linux/suspend.h> .

There are, at least, the following reasons to do that:
* 'struct pm_ops' is specifically related to suspend and not to the power
  management in general.
* As long as 'struct pm_ops' is defined in <linux/pm.h>, any modification of it
  causes the entire kernel to be recompiled, which is unnecessary and annoying.
* Some suspend-related features are already defined in <linux/suspend.h>, so it
  is logical to move the definition of 'struct pm_ops' into there.
* 'struct hibernation_ops', being the hibernation-related counterpart of
  'struct pm_ops', is defined in <linux/suspend.h> .

The patch
- Includes the call to capilib_data_b3_req in the spinlock. This routine
  in turn calls the offending mq_enqueue routine that triggered the
  freeze if not locked.  This should also fix other indicators of
  incosistent capilib_msgidqueue list, that trigger messages like:

  that we saw several times a day (usually several in a row).
- Fixes all occurrences of c4_dispatch_tx to be called with active
  spinlock, there were some instances where no lock was active. Mostly
  these are in very infrequently called routines, so the additional
  performance penalty is minimal.

ext4: lighten up resize transaction requirements

When resizing online, setup_new_group_blocks attempts to reserve a
potentially very large transaction, depending on the current filesystem
geometry.  For some journal sizes, there may not be enough room for this
transaction, and the online resize will fail.

The patch below resizes & restarts the transaction as necessary while
setting up the new group, and should work with even the smallest journal.

Tested with something like:

[root@newbox ~]# dd if=/dev/zero of=fsfile bs=1024 count=32768
[root@newbox ~]# mkfs.ext3 -b 1024 fsfile 16384
[root@newbox ~]# mount -o loop fsfile mnt/
[root@newbox ~]# resize2fs /dev/loop0
resize2fs 1.40.2 (12-Jul-2007)
Filesystem at /dev/loop0 is mounted on /root/mnt; on-line resizing required
old desc_blocks = 1, new_desc_blocks = 1
Performing an on-line resize of /dev/loop0 to 32768 (1k) blocks.
resize2fs: No space left on device While trying to add group #2
[root@newbox ~]# dmesg | tail -n 1
JBD: resize2fs wants too many credits (258 > 256)

With the below change, it works.
