ext3: remove extra IS_RDONLY() check

ext3_change_inode_journal_flag() is only called from one location:
ext3_ioctl(EXT3_IOC_SETFLAGS).  That ioctl case already has a IS_RDONLY()
call in it so this one is superfluous.

12 years agodiskquota: 32bit quota tools on 64bit architectures
Vasily Tarasov [Mon, 16 Jul 2007 06:41:12 +0000]
diskquota: 32bit quota tools on 64bit architectures

OpenVZ Linux kernel team has discovered the problem with 32bit quota tools
working on 64bit architectures.  In 2.6.10 kernel sys32_quotactl() function
was replaced by sys_quotactl() with the comment "sys_quotactl seems to be
32/64bit clean, enable it for 32bit" However this isn't right.  Look at
if_dqblk structure:

struct if_dqblk {
        __u64 dqb_bhardlimit;
        __u64 dqb_bsoftlimit;
        __u64 dqb_curspace;
        __u64 dqb_ihardlimit;
        __u64 dqb_isoftlimit;
        __u64 dqb_curinodes;
        __u64 dqb_btime;
        __u64 dqb_itime;
        __u32 dqb_valid;
};

For 32 bit quota tools sizeof(if_dqblk) == 0x44.
But for 64 bit kernel its size is 0x48, 'cause of alignment!
Thus we got a problem. Attached patch reintroduce sys32_quotactl() function,
that handles this and related situations.

Arnd Bergmann [Mon, 16 Jul 2007 06:41:11 +0000]
Introduce compat_u64 and compat_s64 types

One common problem with 32 bit system call and ioctl emulation is the
different alignment rules between i386 and 64 bit machines.  A number of
drivers work around this by marking the compat structures as
'attribute((packed))', which is not the right solution because it breaks
all the non-x86 architectures that want to use the same compat code.

Hopefully, this patch improves the situation, it introduces two new types,
compat_u64 and compat_s64.  These are defined on all architectures to have
the same size and alignment as the 32 bit version of u64 and s64.

user namespace: add unshare

This patch enables the unshare of user namespaces.

It adds a new clone flag CLONE_NEWUSER and implements copy_user_ns() which
resets the current user_struct and adds a new root user (uid == 0)

For now, unsharing the user namespace allows a process to reset its
user_struct accounting and uid 0 in the new user namespace should be contained
using appropriate means, for instance selinux

The plan, when the full support is complete (all uid checks covered), is to
keep the original user's rights in the original namespace, and let a process
become uid 0 in the new namespace, with full capabilities to the new
namespace.

A new root user (uid == 0) is added to the user namespace upon creation.
Such root users have full privileges and it seems that theses privileges
should be controlled through some means (process capabilities ?)

The unshare is not included in this patch.

12 years agoAudit: add TTY input auditing
Miloslav Trmac [Mon, 16 Jul 2007 06:40:56 +0000]
Audit: add TTY input auditing

Add TTY input auditing, used to audit system administrator's actions.  This is
required by various security standards such as DCID 6/3 and PCI to provide
non-repudiation of administrator's actions and to allow a review of past
actions if the administrator seems to overstep their duties or if the system
becomes misconfigured for unknown reasons.  These requirements do not make it
necessary to audit TTY output as well.

Compared to an user-space keylogger, this approach records TTY input using the
audit subsystem, correlated with other audit events, and it is completely
transparent to the user-space application (e.g.  the console ioctls still
work).

TTY input auditing works on a higher level than auditing all system calls
within the session, which would produce an overwhelming amount of mostly
useless audit events.

Add an "audit_tty" attribute, inherited across fork ().  Data read from TTYs
by process with the attribute is sent to the audit subsystem by the kernel.
The audit netlink interface is extended to allow modifying the audit_tty
attribute, and to allow sending explanatory audit events from user-space (for
example, a shell might send an event containing the final command, after the
interactive command-line editing and history expansion is performed, which
might be difficult to decipher from the TTY input alone).

Because the "audit_tty" attribute is inherited across fork (), it would be set
e.g.  for sshd restarted within an audited session.  To prevent this, the
audit_tty attribute is cleared when a process with no open TTY file
descriptors (e.g.  after daemon startup) opens a TTY.

See https://www.redhat.com/archives/linux-audit/2007-June/msg00000.html for a
more detailed rationale document for an older version of this patch.

12 years agoImprove behaviour of spurious IRQ detect
Alan Cox [Mon, 16 Jul 2007 06:40:55 +0000]
Improve behaviour of spurious IRQ detect

Currently we handle spurious IRQ activity based upon seeing a lot of
invalid interrupts, and we clear things back on the base of lots of valid
interrupts.

Unfortunately in some cases you get legitimate invalid interrupts caused by
timing asynchronicity between the PCI bus and the APIC bus when disabling
interrupts and pulling other tricks.  In this case although the spurious
IRQs are not a problem our unhandled counters didn't clear and they act as
a slow running timebomb.  (This is effectively what the serial port/tty
problem that was fixed by clearing counters when registering a handler
showed up)

It's easy enough to add a second parameter - time.  This means that if we
see a regular stream of harmless spurious interrupts which are not harming
processing we don't go off and do something stupid like disable the IRQ
after a month of running.  OTOH lockups and performance killers show up a
lot more than 10/second

I was seeing a null pointer deref in fs/super.c:vfs_kern_mount().
Some file system get_sb() handler was returning NULL mnt_sb with
a non-negative return value.  I also noticed a "hugetlbfs: Bad
mount option:" message in the log.

Turns out that hugetlbfs_parse_options() was not checking for an
empty option string after call to strsep().  On failure,
hugetlbfs_parse_options() returns 1.  hugetlbfs_fill_super() just
passed this return code back up the call stack where
vfs_kern_mount() missed the error and proceeded with a NULL mnt_sb.

Apparently introduced by patch:
hugetlbfs-use-lib-parser-fix-docs.patch

The problem was exposed by this line in my fstab:

none        /huge       hugetlbfs   defaults    0 0

It can also be demonstrated by invoking mount of hugetlbfs
directly with no options or a bogus option.

This patch:

1) adds the check for empty option to hugetlbfs_parse_options(),
2) enhances the error message to bracket any unrecognized
   option with quotes ,
3) modifies hugetlbfs_parse_options() to return -EINVAL on any
   unrecognized option,
4) adds a BUG_ON() to vfs_kern_mount() to catch any get_sb()
   handler that returns a NULL mnt->mnt_sb with a return value
   >= 0.

12 years agoext3/ext4: orphan list corruption due bad inode
Vasily Averin [Mon, 16 Jul 2007 06:40:46 +0000]
ext3/ext4: orphan list corruption due bad inode

After ext3 orphan list check has been added into ext3_destroy_inode()
(please see my previous patch) the following situation has been detected:

 EXT3-fs warning (device sda6): ext3_unlink: Deleting nonexistent file (37901290), 0
 Inode 00000101a15b7840: orphan list check failed!
 00000773 6f665f00 74616d72 00000573 65725f00 06737270 66000000 616d726f
...
 Call Trace: [<ffffffff80211ea9>] ext3_destroy_inode+0x79/0x90
  [<ffffffff801a2b16>] sys_unlink+0x126/0x1a0
  [<ffffffff80111479>] error_exit+0x0/0x81
  [<ffffffff80110aba>] system_call+0x7e/0x83

First messages said that unlinked inode has i_nlink=0, then ext3_unlink()
adds this inode into orphan list.

Second message means that this inode has not been removed from orphan list.
 Inode dump has showed that i_fop = &bad_file_ops and it can be set in
make_bad_inode() only.  Then I've found that ext3_read_inode() can call
make_bad_inode() without any error/warning messages, for example in the
following case:

...
        if (inode->i_nlink == 0) {
                if (inode->i_mode == 0 ||
                    !(EXT3_SB(inode->i_sb)->s_mount_state & EXT3_ORPHAN_FS)) {
                        /* this inode is deleted */
                        brelse (bh);
                        goto bad_inode;
...

Bad inode can live some time, ext3_unlink can add it to orphan list, but
ext3_delete_inode() do not deleted this inode from orphan list.  As result
we can have orphan list corruption detected in ext3_destroy_inode().

However it is not clear for me how to fix this issue correctly.

As far as i see is_bad_inode() is called after iget() in all places
excluding ext3_lookup() and ext3_get_parent().  I believe it makes sense to
add bad inode check to these functions too and call iput if bad inode
detected.

12 years agoseq_file: more atomicity in traverse()
Alexey Dobriyan [Mon, 16 Jul 2007 06:40:39 +0000]
seq_file: more atomicity in traverse()

Original problem: in some circumstances seq_file interface can present
infinite proc file to the following script when normally said proc file is
finite:

while read line; do
[do something with $line]
done </proc/$FILE

bash, to implement such loop does essentially

read(0, buf, 128);
[find \n]
lseek(0, -difference, SEEK_CUR);

Consider, proc file prints list of objects each of them consists of many
lines, each line is shorter than 128 bytes.

Two objects in list, with ->index'es being 0 and 1.  Current one is 1, as
bash prints second object line by line.

Imagine first object being removed right before lseek().
traverse() will be called, because there is negative offset.
traverse() will reset ->index to 0 (!).
traverse() will call ->next() and get NULL in any usual iterate-over-list
code using list_for_each_entry_continue() and such. There is one object in
list now after all...
traverse() will return 0, lseek() will update file position and pretend
everything is OK.

So, what we have now: ->f_pos points to place where second object will be
printed, but ->index is 0.  seq_read() instead of returning EOF, will start
printing first line of first object every time it's called, until enough
objects are added to ->f_pos return in bounds.

Fix is to update ->index only after we're sure we saw enough objects down
the road.

Haavard Skinnemoen [Mon, 16 Jul 2007 06:40:36 +0000]
atmel_serial: fix break handling

The RXBRK field in the AT91/AT32 USART status register has the
following definition according to e.g. the AT32AP7000 data sheet:

    RXBRK: Break Received/End of Break
    0: No Break received or End of Break detected since the last RSTSTA.
    1: Break Received or End of Break detected since the last RSTSTA.

Thus, for each break, the USART sets the RXBRK bit twice. This patch
modifies the driver to report the break event to the serial core only
once by keeping track of whether a break condition is currently
active. The break_active flag is reset as soon as a character is
received, so even if we miss the start-of-break interrupt this should
do the right thing.

init: wait for asynchronously scanned block devices

Some buses (e.g.  USB and MMC) do their scanning of devices in the
background, causing a race between them and prepare_namespace().  In order
to be able to use these buses without an initrd, we now wait for the device
specified in root= to actually show up.

If the device never shows up than we will hang in an infinite loop.  In
order to not mess with setups that reboot on panic, the feature must be
turned on via the command line option "rootwait".

O_CLOEXEC for SCM_RIGHTS

Part two in the O_CLOEXEC saga: adding support for file descriptors received
through Unix domain sockets.

The patch is once again pretty minimal, it introduces a new flag for recvmsg
and passes it just like the existing MSG_CMSG_COMPAT flag.  I think this bit
is not used otherwise but the networking people will know better.

This new flag is not recognized by recvfrom and recv.  These functions cannot
be used for that purpose and the asymmetry this introduces is not worse than
the already existing MSG_CMSG_COMPAT situations.

The patch must be applied on the patch which introduced O_CLOEXEC.  It has to
remove static from the new get_unused_fd_flags function but since scm.c cannot
live in a module the function still hasn't to be exported.

Here's a test program to make sure the code works.  It's so much longer than
the actual patch...

12 years agoIntroduce O_CLOEXEC
Ulrich Drepper [Mon, 16 Jul 2007 06:40:32 +0000]
Introduce O_CLOEXEC

The problem is as follows: in multi-threaded code (or more correctly: all
code using clone() with CLONE_FILES) we have a race when exec'ing.

   thread #1                       thread #2

   fd=open()

                                   fork + exec

  fcntl(fd,F_SETFD,FD_CLOEXEC)

In some applications this can happen frequently.  Take a web browser.  One
thread opens a file and another thread starts, say, an external PDF viewer.
 The result can even be a security issue if that open file descriptor
refers to a sensitive file and the external program can somehow be tricked
into using that descriptor.

Just adding O_CLOEXEC support to open() doesn't solve the whole set of
problems.  There are other ways to create file descriptors (socket,
epoll_create, Unix domain socket transfer, etc).  These can and should be
addressed separately though.  open() is such an easy case that it makes not
much sense putting the fix off.

The test program:

#include <errno.h>
#include <fcntl.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <unistd.h>

#ifndef O_CLOEXEC
# define O_CLOEXEC 02000000
#endif

int
main (int argc, char *argv[])
{
  int fd;
  if (argc > 1)
    {
      fd = atol (argv[1]);
      printf ("child: fd = %d\n", fd);
      if (fcntl (fd, F_GETFD) == 0 || errno != EBADF)
        {
          puts ("file descriptor valid in child");
          return 1;
        }
      return 0;
    }

  fd = open ("/proc/self/exe", O_RDONLY | O_CLOEXEC);
  printf ("in parent: new fd = %d\n", fd);
  char buf[20];
  snprintf (buf, sizeof (buf), "%d", fd);
  execl ("/proc/self/exe", argv[0], buf, NULL);
  puts ("execl failed");
  return 1;
}

This enables code with a dma path, that compiles away, to build without
requiring additional code factoring.  It also prevents code that calls
dma_alloc_coherent and dma_free_coherent from linking whereas previously
the code would hit a BUG() at run time.  Finally, it allows archs that set

12 years agoadd printk.time option, deprecate 'time'
Randy Dunlap [Mon, 16 Jul 2007 06:40:25 +0000]
add printk.time option, deprecate 'time'

Allow printk_time to be enabled or disabled at boot time.  Previously it
could be enabled only, but not disabled.

Change printk_time from an int to a bool since that's what it is.  Make its
logical (exposed) name just be "time" (was "printk_time").

Note: Changes kernel boot option syntax from "time" to "printk.time=value".

Since printk_time is declared as a module_param, it can also be
changed at run-time by modifying
  /sys/module/printk/parameters/time
to a value of 1/Y/y to enabled it or 0/N/n to disable it.

Since printk_time is declared as a module_param, its value can also
be set at boot-time by using
  linux printk.time=<bool>

If the "time" boot option is used, print a message that it is deprecated
and will be removed.

Note its planned removal in feature-removal-schedule.txt.

core when they try to copy a file that's too large for the destination
filesystem (typically, > 4gb).  Apparently, some defunct standards required
SIGXFSZ to be sent in such circumstances, but SUS only requires/allows it
for when a written file exceeds the process's resource limits.  I'd like to
limit SIGXFSZs to the bare minimum required by SUS.

PIE randomization

This patch is using mmap()'s randomization functionality in such a way that
it maps the main executable of (specially compiled/linked -pie/-fpie)
ET_DYN binaries onto a random address (in cases in which mmap() is allowed
to perform a randomization).

Origin of this patch is in exec-shield

* "while ( foo )" instead of "while (foo)"
* if (foo) blah; on one line instead of two
* Missing printk KERN_ levels
* lots of trailing whitespace
* lines >80 columns changed to wrap.
* Unnecessary prototype removed by shuffling code order in C file.

Should be no functional changes other than slight size increase due to

12 years agopercpu_counters(): use cpu notifiers
Andrew Morton [Mon, 16 Jul 2007 06:39:51 +0000]
percpu_counters(): use cpu notifiers

per-cpu counters presently must iterate over all possible CPUs in the
exhaustive percpu_counter_sum().

But it can be much better to only iterate over the presently-online CPUs.  To
do this, we must arrange for an offlined CPU's count to be spilled into the
counter's central count.

We can do this for all percpu_counters in the machine by linking them into a
single global list and walking that list at CPU_DEAD time.

(I hope.  Might have race windows in which the percpu_counter_sum() count is
inaccurate?)

cpu hotplug: fix ksoftirqd termination on cpu hotplug with naughty realtime process

Fix ksoftirqd termination on cpu hotplug with naughty real time process.

Assuming the following case:

 - Try to hot remove CPU2 from CPU1.
 - There is a real time process on CPU2, and that process doesn't sleep at all.
 - That rt process and ksoftirqd/2 is migrated to the CPU0

Then ksoftirqd/2 can't stop becasue that rt process runs everlastingly on
CPU0, and CPU1 waiting the ksoftirqd/2's termination hangs up.  To fix this
problem, set the priority of ksoftirqd/2 to max one before kthread_stop().

Therefore, in the following case ...
