11 years agobsdacct: switch from global bsd_acct_struct instance to per-pidns one

bsdacct: switch from global bsd_acct_struct instance to per-pidns one

Allocate the structure on the first call to sys_acct().  After this each
namespace, that ordered the accounting, will live with this structure till
its own death.

Two notes
- routines, that close the accounting on fs umount time use
  the init_pid_ns's acct by now;
- accounting routine accounts to dying task's namespace
  (also by now).

bsdacct: turn the acct_lock from on-the-struct to global

Don't use per-bsd-acct-struct lock, but work with a global one.

This lock is taken for short periods, so it doesn't seem it'll become a

11 years agobsdacct: rename acct_gbls to bsd_acct_struct
Pavel Emelyanov [Fri, 25 Jul 2008 08:48:42 +0000]
bsdacct: rename acct_gbls to bsd_acct_struct

After I fixed access to task->tgid in kernel/acct.c, Oleg pointed out some
bad side effects with this accounting vs pid namespaces interaction.  I.e.
 when some task in pid namespace sets this accounting up, this blocks all
the others from doing the same.  Restricting this to init namespace only
could help, but didn't look a graceful solution.

So here is the approach to make this accounting work with pid namespaces
properly.

The idea is simple - when a task dies it accounts itself in each namespace
it is visible from and which set the accounting up.

For example here are the commands run and the output of lastcomm from init
and sub namespaces:

init_ns# accton pacct
 sub_ns# accton pacct (this is a different file - sub ns is run in
                       a chroot-ed environment)
init_ns# cat /dev/null
 sub_ns# ls /dev/null
init_ns# accton
 sub_ns# accton

 sub_ns#  lastcomm -f pacct
ls                      0        [136,0]    0.00 secs Thu May 15 10:30
accton                  0        [136,0]    0.00 secs Thu May 15 10:30

init_ns# lastcomm -f pacct
accton                  root     pts/0      0.00 secs Thu May 15 14:30 << got from sub
cat                     root     pts/1      0.00 secs Thu May 15 14:30
ls                      root     pts/0      0.00 secs Thu May 15 14:30 << got from sub
accton                  root     pts/1      0.00 secs Thu May 15 14:30

That was the summary, the details are in patches.

This patch:

It will be visible in pid_namespace.h file, so fix its name to look better
outside the acct.c file.

Extend the permission check for networking sysctl's to allow modification
when current process has CAP_NET_ADMIN capability and is not root.  This
version uses the until now unused permissions hook to override the mode
value for /proc/sys/net if accessed by a user with capabilities.

Found while working with Quagga.  It is impossible to turn forwarding
on/off through the command interface because Quagga uses secure coding
practice of dropping privledges during initialization and only raising via
capabilities when necessary.  Since the dameon has reset real/effective
uid after initialization, all attempts to access /proc/sys/net variables

11 years agoipc: do not use a negative value to re-enable msgmni automatic recomputing
Nadia Derbey [Fri, 25 Jul 2008 08:48:08 +0000]
ipc: do not use a negative value to re-enable msgmni automatic recomputing

This patch proposes an alternative to the "magical
positive-versus-negative number trick" Andrew complained about last week
in http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/6/24/418.

This had been introduced with the patches that scale msgmni to the amount
of lowmem.  With these patches, msgmni has a registered notification
routine that recomputes msgmni value upon memory add/remove or ipc
namespace creation/ removal.

When msgmni is changed from user space (i.e.  value written to the proc
file), that notification routine is unregistered, and the way to make it
registered back is to write a negative value into the proc file.  This is
the "magical positive-versus-negative number trick".

To fix this, a new proc file is introduced: /proc/sys/kernel/auto_msgmni.
This file acts as ON/OFF for msgmni automatic recomputing.

With this patch, the process is the following:
1) kernel boots in "automatic recomputing mode"
   /proc/sys/kernel/msgmni contains the value that has been computed (depends
                           on lowmem)
   /proc/sys/kernel/automatic_msgmni contains "1"

2) echo <val> > /proc/sys/kernel/msgmni
   . sets msg_ctlmni to <val>
   . de-activates automatic recomputing (i.e. if, say, some memory is added
     msgmni won't be recomputed anymore)
   . /proc/sys/kernel/automatic_msgmni now contains "0"

3) echo "0" > /proc/sys/kernel/automatic_msgmni
   . de-activates msgmni automatic recomputing
     this has the same effect as 2) except that msg_ctlmni's value stays
     blocked at its current value)

3) echo "1" > /proc/sys/kernel/automatic_msgmni
   . recomputes msgmni's value based on the current available memory size
     and number of ipc namespaces
   . re-activates automatic recomputing for msgmni.

Manfred Spraul [Fri, 25 Jul 2008 08:48:06 +0000]
ipc/sem.c: rewrite undo list locking

The attached patch:
- reverses the locking order of ulp->lock and sem_lock:
  Previously, it was first ulp->lock, then inside sem_lock.
  Now it's the other way around.
- converts the undo structure to rcu.

Benefits:
- With the old locking order, IPC_RMID could not kfree the undo structures.
  The stale entries remained in the linked lists and were released later.
- The patch fixes a a race in semtimedop(): if both IPC_RMID and a semget() that
  recreates exactly the same id happen between find_alloc_undo() and sem_lock,
  then semtimedop() would access already kfree'd memory.

idr: rename some of the idr APIs internal routines

This is a trivial patch that renames:

   . alloc_layer to get_from_free_list since it idr_pre_get that actually
     allocates memory.
   . free_layer to move_to_free_list since memory is not actually freed there.

This makes things more clear for the next patches.

11 years agoidr: change the idr structure
Nadia Derbey [Fri, 25 Jul 2008 08:47:57 +0000]
idr: change the idr structure

After scalability problems have been detected when using the sysV ipcs, I have
proposed to use an RCU based implementation of the IDR api instead (see
threads http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/4/11/212 and
http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/4/29/295).

This resulted in many people asking to convert the idr API and make it rcu
safe (because most of the code was duplicated and thus unmaintanable and
unreviewable).

So here is a first attempt.

The important change wrt to the idr API itself is during idr removes: idr
layers are freed after a grace period, instead of being moved to the free
list.

The important change wrt to ipcs, is that idr_find() can now be called
locklessly inside a rcu read critical section.

Here are the results I've got for the pmsg test sent by Manfred:

11 years agocalgary iommu: use the first kernels TCE tables in kdump
Chandru [Fri, 25 Jul 2008 08:47:55 +0000]
calgary iommu: use the first kernels TCE tables in kdump

kdump kernel fails to boot with calgary iommu and aacraid driver on a x366
box.  The ongoing dma's of aacraid from the first kernel continue to exist
until the driver is loaded in the kdump kernel.  Calgary is initialized
prior to aacraid and creation of new tce tables causes wrong dma's to
occur.  Here we try to get the tce tables of the first kernel in kdump
kernel and use them.  While in the kdump kernel we do not allocate new tce
tables but instead read the base address register contents of calgary
iommu and use the tables that the registers point to.  With these changes
the kdump kernel and hence aacraid now boots normally.

11 years agoworkqueues: do CPU_UP_CANCELED if CPU_UP_PREPARE fails
Oleg Nesterov [Fri, 25 Jul 2008 08:47:54 +0000]
workqueues: do CPU_UP_CANCELED if CPU_UP_PREPARE fails

The bug was pointed out by Akinobu Mita <akinobu.mita@gmail.com>, and this
patch is based on his original patch.

workqueue_cpu_callback(CPU_UP_PREPARE) expects that if it returns
NOTIFY_BAD, _cpu_up() will send CPU_UP_CANCELED then.

However, this is not true since

"cpu hotplug: cpu: deliver CPU_UP_CANCELED only to NOTIFY_OKed callbacks with CPU_UP_PREPARE"
commit: a0d8cdb652d35af9319a9e0fb7134de2a276c636

The callback which has returned NOTIFY_BAD will not receive
CPU_UP_CANCELED.  Change the code to fulfil the CPU_UP_CANCELED logic if
CPU_UP_PREPARE fails.

Oleg Nesterov [Fri, 25 Jul 2008 08:47:50 +0000]
workqueues: make get_online_cpus() useable for work->func()

workqueue_cpu_callback(CPU_DEAD) flushes cwq->thread under
cpu_maps_update_begin().  This means that the multithreaded workqueues
can't use get_online_cpus() due to the possible deadlock, very bad and
very old problem.

Introduce the new state, CPU_POST_DEAD, which is called after
cpu_hotplug_done() but before cpu_maps_update_done().

Change workqueue_cpu_callback() to use CPU_POST_DEAD instead of CPU_DEAD.
This means that create/destroy functions can't rely on get_online_cpus()
any longer and should take cpu_add_remove_lock instead.

11 years agoworkqueues: implement flush_work()
Oleg Nesterov [Fri, 25 Jul 2008 08:47:49 +0000]
workqueues: implement flush_work()

Most of users of flush_workqueue() can be changed to use cancel_work_sync(),
but sometimes we really need to wait for the completion and cancelling is not
an option. schedule_on_each_cpu() is good example.

Add the new helper, flush_work(work), which waits for the completion of the
specific work_struct. More precisely, it "flushes" the result of of the last
queue_work() which is visible to the caller.

For example, this code

queue_work(wq, work);
/* WINDOW */
queue_work(wq, work);

flush_work(work);

doesn't necessary work "as expected". What can happen in the WINDOW above is

- wq starts the execution of work->func()

- the caller migrates to another CPU

now, after the 2nd queue_work() this work is active on the previous CPU, and
at the same time it is queued on another. In this case flush_work(work) may
return before the first work->func() completes.

It is trivial to add another helper

int flush_work_sync(struct work_struct *work)
{
return flush_work(work) || wait_on_work(work);
}

which works "more correctly", but it has to iterate over all CPUs and thus
it much slower than flush_work().

linux_binfmt->core_dump() runs before the process does exit_aio(), this
means that we can hit the kernel thread which shares the same ->mm.
Afaics, nothing really bad can happen, but perhaps it makes sense to fix
this minor bug.

It is sad we have to iterate over all threads in system and use
GFP_ATOMIC.  Hopefully we can kill theses ugly do_each_thread()s, but this
needs some nontrivial changes in mm_struct and do_coredump.

coredump: zap_threads() must skip kernel threads

The main loop in zap_threads() must skip kthreads which may use the same
mm.  Otherwise we "kill" this thread erroneously (for example, it can not
fork or exec after that), and the coredumping task stucks in the
TASK_UNINTERRUPTIBLE state forever because of the wrong ->core_waiters
count.

11 years agokill PF_BORROWED_MM in favour of PF_KTHREAD
Oleg Nesterov [Fri, 25 Jul 2008 08:47:38 +0000]
kill PF_BORROWED_MM in favour of PF_KTHREAD

Kill PF_BORROWED_MM.  Change use_mm/unuse_mm to not play with ->flags, and
do s/PF_BORROWED_MM/PF_KTHREAD/ for a couple of other users.

No functional changes yet.  But this allows us to do further
fixes/cleanups.

oom_kill/ptrace/etc often check "p->mm != NULL" to filter out the
kthreads, this is wrong because of use_mm().  The problem with
PF_BORROWED_MM is that we need task_lock() to avoid races.  With this
patch we can check PF_KTHREAD directly, or use a simple lockless helper:

/* The result must not be dereferenced !!! */
struct mm_struct *__get_task_mm(struct task_struct *tsk)
{
if (tsk->flags & PF_KTHREAD)
return NULL;
return tsk->mm;
}

Note also ecard_task().  It runs with ->mm != NULL, but it's the kernel
thread without PF_BORROWED_MM.

11 years agointroduce PF_KTHREAD flag
Oleg Nesterov [Fri, 25 Jul 2008 08:47:37 +0000]
introduce PF_KTHREAD flag

Introduce the new PF_KTHREAD flag to mark the kernel threads.  It is set
by INIT_TASK() and copied to the forked childs (we could set it in
kthreadd() along with PF_NOFREEZE instead).

daemonize() was changed as well.  In that case testing of PF_KTHREAD is
racy, but daemonize() is hopeless anyway.

This flag is cleared in do_execve(), before search_binary_handler().
Probably not the best place, we can do this in exec_mmap() or in
start_thread(), or clear it along with PF_FORKNOEXEC.  But I think this
doesn't matter in practice, and if do_execve() fails kthread should die
soon.

11 years agoptrace: simplify ptrace_stop()->sigkill_pending() path
Oleg Nesterov [Fri, 25 Jul 2008 08:47:37 +0000]
ptrace: simplify ptrace_stop()->sigkill_pending() path

1. SIGKILL can't be blocked, remove this check from sigkill_pending().

2. When ptrace_stop() sees sigkill_pending() == T, it can just return.
   Kill "int killed" and simplify the code. This also is more correct,
   the tracer shouldn't see us in TASK_TRACED if we are not going to
   stop.

I strongly believe this code needs further changes.  We should do the "was
this task killed" check unconditionally, currently it depends on
arch_ptrace_stop_needed().  On the other hand, sigkill_pending() isn't
very clever.  If the task was killed tkill(SIGKILL), the signal can be
already dequeued if the caller is do_exit().

11 years agoptrace: give more respect to SIGKILL
Oleg Nesterov [Fri, 25 Jul 2008 08:47:36 +0000]
ptrace: give more respect to SIGKILL

ptrace_stop() has some complicated checks to prevent the scheduling in the
TASK_TRACED state with the pending SIGKILL, but these checks are racy, and
they depend on arch_ptrace_stop_needed().

This patch assumes that the traced task should die asap if it was killed by
SIGKILL, in that case schedule()->signal_pending_state() has no reason to
ignore the TASK_WAKEKILL part of TASK_TRACED, and we can kill this nasty
special case.

Note: do_exit()->ptrace_notify() is special, the killed task can already
dequeue SIGKILL at this point. Another indication that fatal_signal_pending()
is not exactly right.

include/asm/ptrace.h userspace headers cleanup

This patch contains the following cleanups for the asm/ptrace.h
userspace headers:

- include/asm-generic/Kbuild.asm already lists ptrace.h, remove
  the superfluous listings in the Kbuild files of the following
  architectures:
  - cris
  - frv
  - powerpc
  - x86
- don't expose function prototypes and macros to userspace:
  - arm
  - blackfin
  - cris
  - mn10300
  - parisc
- remove #ifdef CONFIG_'s around #define's:
  - blackfin
  - m68knommu
- sh: AFAIK __SH5__ should work in both kernel and userspace,
      no need to leak CONFIG_SUPERH64 to userspace
- xtensa: cosmetical change to remove empty
            #ifndef __ASSEMBLY__ #else #endif
          from the userspace headers

Not changed by this patch is the fact that the following architectures
have a different struct pt_regs depending on CONFIG_ variables:
- h8300
- m68knommu
- mips

This does not work in userspace.

si_stime fields that are exposed to userland via the siginfo structure
looks to have been botched.  As things stand, these fields report times in
units of HZ, so that userland gets information that varies depending on

reported values to use USER_HZ units.

signals: dequeue_signal: don't check SIGNAL_GROUP_EXIT when setting SIGNAL_STOP_DEQUEUED

dequeue_signal() checks SIGNAL_GROUP_EXIT before setting
SIGNAL_STOP_DEQUEUED.  This was added by
788e05a67c343fa22f2ae1d3ca264e7f15c25eaf a long ago to avoid the
coredump/SIGSTOP race.

Since then the related code was changed, and now this subtle check is both
incomplete and unneeded at the same time.  It is incomplete because
nowadays exec() doesn't set SIGNAL_GROUP_EXIT, so in fact we should check
signal_group_exit() to avoid a similar race.  Fortunately, we doesn't need
the check at all.  The only function which relies on SIGNAL_STOP_DEQUEUED
is do_signal_stop(), and it ignores this flag if signal_group_exit() == T,
this covers the SIGNAL_GROUP_EXIT case.
