idr: create idr_layer_cache at boot time

Avoid a possible kmem_cache_create() failure by creating idr_layer_cache
unconditionary at boot time rather than creating it on-demand when idr_init()
is called the first time.

This change also enables us to eliminate the check every time idr_init() is
called.

Matt Mackall [Tue, 29 Apr 2008 08:03:05 +0000]
random: make mixing interface byte-oriented

Switch add_entropy_words to a byte-oriented interface, eliminating numerous
casts and byte/word size rounding issues.  This also reduces the overall
bit/byte/word confusion in this code.

We now mix a byte at a time into the word-based pool.  This takes four times
as many iterations, but should be negligible compared to hashing overhead.
This also increases our pool churn, which adds some depth against some
theoretical failure modes.

The function name is changed to emphasize pool mixing and deemphasize entropy
(the samples mixed in may not contain any).  extract is added to the core
function to make it clear that it extracts from the pool.

Matt Mackall [Tue, 29 Apr 2008 08:03:00 +0000]
random: make backtracking attacks harder

At each extraction, we change (poolbits / 16) + 32 bits in the pool,
or 96 bits in the case of the secondary pools. Thus, a brute-force
backtracking attack on the pool state is less difficult than breaking
the hash. In certain cases, this difficulty may be is reduced to 2^64
iterations.

Instead, hash the entire pool in one go, then feedback the whole hash
(160 bits) in one go. This will make backtracking at least as hard as
inverting the hash.

So we have to do a "touch /dev/nbdX" or something like that.
It can't be done from the nbd-client or nbd driver because at this

NBD: allow nbd to be used locally

This patch allows Network Block Device to be mounted locally (nbd-client to
nbd-server over 127.0.0.1).

It creates a kthread to avoid the deadlock described in NBD tools
documentation.  So, if nbd-client hangs waiting for pages, the kblockd thread
can continue its work and free pages.

I have tested the patch to verify that it avoids the hang that always occurs
when writing to a localhost nbd connection.  I have also tested to verify that
no performance degradation results from the additional thread and queue.

Patch originally from Laurent Vivier.

12 years agosysctl: clean from unneeded extern and forward declarations
Pavel Emelyanov [Tue, 29 Apr 2008 08:02:41 +0000]
sysctl: clean from unneeded extern and forward declarations

The do_sysctl_strategy isn't used outside kernel/sysctl.c, so this can be
static and without a prototype in header.

Besides, move this one and parse_table() above their callers and drop the
forward declarations of the latter call.

One more "besides" - fix two checkpatch warnings: space before a ( and an
extra space at the end of a line.

12 years agosysctl: merge equal proc_sys_read and proc_sys_write
Pavel Emelyanov [Tue, 29 Apr 2008 08:02:40 +0000]
sysctl: merge equal proc_sys_read and proc_sys_write

Many (most of) sysctls do not have a per-container sense.  E.g.
kernel.print_fatal_signals, vm.panic_on_oom, net.core.netdev_budget and so on
and so forth.  Besides, tuning then from inside a container is not even
secure.  On the other hand, hiding them completely from the container's tasks
sometimes causes user-space to stop working.

When developing net sysctl, the common practice was to duplicate a table and
drop the write bits in table->mode, but this approach was not very elegant,
lead to excessive memory consumption and was not suitable in general.

Here's the alternative solution.  To facilitate the per-container sysctls
ctl_table_root-s were introduced.  Each root contains a list of
ctl_table_header-s that are visible to different namespaces.  The idea of this
set is to add the permissions() callback on the ctl_table_root to allow ctl
root limit permissions to the same ctl_table-s.

The main user of this functionality is the net-namespaces code, but later this
will (should) be used by more and more namespaces, containers and control
groups.

Actually, this idea's core is in a single hunk in the third patch.  First two
patches are cleanups for sysctl code, while the third one mostly extends the
arguments set of some sysctl functions.

This patch:

These ->read and ->write callbacks act in a very similar way, so merge these
paths to reduce the number of places to patch later and shrink the .text size
(a bit).

12 years agoproc: introduce proc_create_data to setup de->data
Denis V. Lunev [Tue, 29 Apr 2008 08:02:00 +0000]
proc: introduce proc_create_data to setup de->data

This set of patches fixes an proc ->open'less usage due to ->proc_fops flip in
the most part of the kernel code.  The original OOPS is described in the
commit 2d3a4e3666325a9709cc8ea2e88151394e8f20fc:

    Typical PDE creation code looks like:

     pde = create_proc_entry("foo", 0, NULL);
     if (pde)
     pde->proc_fops = &foo_proc_fops;

    Notice that PDE is first created, only then ->proc_fops is set up to
    final value. This is a problem because right after creation
    a) PDE is fully visible in /proc , and
    b) ->proc_fops are proc_file_operations which do not have ->open callback. So, it's
       possible to ->read without ->open (see one class of oopses below).

    The fix is new API called proc_create() which makes sure ->proc_fops are
    set up before gluing PDE to main tree. Typical new code looks like:

     pde = proc_create("foo", 0, NULL, &foo_proc_fops);
     if (!pde)
     return -ENOMEM;

    Fix most networking users for a start.

    In the long run, create_proc_entry() for regular files will go.

In addition to this, proc_create_data is introduced to fix reading from
proc without PDE->data. The race is basically the same as above.

create_proc_entries is replaced in the entire kernel code as new method
is also simply better.

This patch:

The problem is the same as for de->proc_fops.  Right now PDE becomes visible
without data set.  So, the entry could be looked up without data.  This, in
most cases, will simply OOPS.

proc_create_data call is created to address this issue.  proc_create now
becomes a wrapper around it.

If valid "parent" is passed to proc_create/remove_proc_entry(), then name of

removal will fail.  However, if NULL is passed as parent then create/remove
accept full path as a argument.  This is arbitrary restriction -- all

So, patch allows the following to succeed:

create_proc_entry("foo/bar", 0, pde_baz);
remove_proc_entry("baz/foo/bar", &proc_root);

Also makes the following to behave identically:

create_proc_entry("foo/bar", 0, NULL);
create_proc_entry("foo/bar", 0, &proc_root);

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.

Make key_serial() an inline function rather than a macro if CONFIG_KEYS=y.
This prevents double evaluation of the key pointer and also provides better
type checking.

12 years agokeys: make the keyring quotas controllable through /proc/sys
David Howells [Tue, 29 Apr 2008 08:01:32 +0000]
keys: make the keyring quotas controllable through /proc/sys

Make the keyring quotas controllable through /proc/sys files:

 (*) /proc/sys/kernel/keys/root_maxkeys
     /proc/sys/kernel/keys/root_maxbytes

     Maximum number of keys that root may have and the maximum total number of
     bytes of data that root may have stored in those keys.

 (*) /proc/sys/kernel/keys/maxkeys
     /proc/sys/kernel/keys/maxbytes

     Maximum number of keys that each non-root user may have and the maximum
     total number of bytes of data that each of those users may have stored in
     their keys.

Also increase the quotas as a number of people have been complaining that it's
not big enough.  I'm not sure that it's big enough now either, but on the
other hand, it can now be set in /etc/sysctl.conf.

12 years agokeys: don't generate user and user session keyrings unless they're accessed
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).

12 years agokeys: allow clients to set key perms in key_create_or_update()
Arun Raghavan [Tue, 29 Apr 2008 08:01:28 +0000]
keys: allow clients to set key perms in key_create_or_update()

The key_create_or_update() function provided by the keyring code has a default
set of permissions that are always applied to the key when created.  This
might not be desirable to all clients.

Here's a patch that adds a "perm" parameter to the function to address this,
which can be set to KEY_PERM_UNDEF to revert to the current behaviour.

David Howells [Tue, 29 Apr 2008 08:01:26 +0000]
keys: add keyctl function to get a security label

Add a keyctl() function to get the security label of a key.

The following is added to Documentation/keys.txt:

 (*) 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.

12 years agokeys: check starting keyring as part of search
Kevin Coffman [Tue, 29 Apr 2008 08:01:22 +0000]
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
