[PATCH] VT binding: Add sysfs control to the VT layer

Add sysfs control to the VT layer.  A new sysfs class, 'vtconsole', and class
devices 'vtcon[n]' are added.  Each class device file has the following
attributes:

/sys/class/vtconsole/vtcon[n]/name - read-only attribute showing the
                                     name of the current backend

/sys/class/vtconsole/vtcon[n]/bind - read/write attribute
             where: 0 - backend is unbound/unbind backend from the VT layer
                    1 - backend is bound/bind backend to the VT layer

In addition, if any of the consoles are in KD_GRAPHICS mode, binding and
unbinding will not succeed.  KD_GRAPHICS mode usually indicates that the
underlying console hardware is used for other purposes other than displaying
text (ie X).  This feature should prevent binding/unbinding from interfering
with a graphics application using the VT.

[PATCH] VT binding: Update fbcon to support binding

The control for binding/unbinding is moved from fbcon to the console layer.
Thus the fbcon sysfs attributes, attach and detach, are also gone.

    1. Add a notifier event that tells fbcon if a framebuffer driver has been
       unregistered.  If no registered driver remains, fbcon will unregister
       itself from the console layer.

    2. Replaced calls to give_up_console() with unregister_con_driver().

    3. Still use take_over_console() instead of register_con_driver() to
       maintain compatibility

    4. Respect the parameter first_fb_vc and last_fb_vc instead of using 0 and
       MAX_NR_CONSOLES - 1. These parameters are settable by the user.

    5. When fbcon is completely unbound from the console layer, fbcon will
       also release (iow, decrement module reference counts to zero) all fbdev
       drivers. In other words, a bind or unbind request from the console layer
       will propagate down to the framebuffer drivers.

    6. If fbcon is not bound to the console, it will ignore all notifier
       events (except driver registration and unregistration) and all sysfs
       requests.

13 years ago[PATCH] VT binding: Add binding/unbinding support for the VT console
Antonino A. Daplas [Mon, 26 Jun 2006 07:27:08 +0000]
[PATCH] VT binding: Add binding/unbinding support for the VT console

The framebuffer console is now able to dynamically bind and unbind from the VT
console layer.  Due to the way the VT console layer works, the drivers
themselves decide when to bind or unbind.  However, it was decided that
binding must be controlled, not by the drivers themselves, but by the VT
console layer.  With this, dynamic binding is possible for all VT console
drivers, not just fbcon.

Thus, the VT console layer will impose the following to all VT console
drivers:

- all registered VT console drivers will be entered in a private list
- drivers can register themselves to the VT console layer, but they cannot
  decide when to bind or unbind. (Exception: To maintain backwards
  compatibility, take_over_console() will automatically bind the driver after
  registration.)
- drivers can remove themselves from the list by unregistering from the VT
  console layer. A prerequisite for unregistration is that the driver must not
  be bound.

The following functions are new in the vt.c:

register_con_driver() - public function, this function adds the VT console
driver to an internal list maintained by the VT console

bind_con_driver() - private function, it binds the driver to the console

take_over_console() is changed to call register_con_driver() followed by a
bind_con_driver().  This is the only time drivers can decide when to bind to
the VT layer.  This is to maintain backwards compatibility.

unbind_con_driver() - private function, it unbinds the driver from its
console.  The vacated consoles will be taken over by the default boot console
driver.

unregister_con_driver() - public function, removes the driver from the
internal list maintained by the VT console.  It will only succeed if the
driver is currently unbound.

con_is_bound() checks if the driver is currently bound or not

give_up_console() is just a wrapper to unregister_con_driver().

There are also 3 additional functions meant to be called only by the tty layer
for sysfs control:

vt_bind() - calls bind_con_driver()
vt_unbind() - calls unbind_con_driver()
vt_show_drivers() - shows the list of registered drivers

Most VT console drivers will continue to work as is, but might have problems
when unbinding or binding which should be fixable with minimal changes.

[PATCH] Detaching fbcon: add capability to attach/detach fbcon

Add the ability to detach and attach the framebuffer console to and from the
vt layer.  This is done by echo'ing any value to sysfs attributes located in
class/graphics/fbcon.  The two attributes are:

      attach - bind fbcon to the vt layer
      detach - unbind fbcon from the vt layer

Once fbcon is detached from the vt layer, fbcon can be unloaded if compiled as
a module.  This feature is quite useful for developers who work on the
framebuffer or console subsystem.  This is also useful for users who want to
go to text mode or graphics mode without having to reboot.

Directly unloading the fbcon module is not possible because the vt layer
increments the module reference count for all bound consoles.  Detaching fbcon
decrements the module reference count to zero so unloading becomes possible.

Detaching fbcon may interfere with X and/or DRM.

[PATCH] Detaching fbcon: fix give_up_console()

To allow for detaching fbcon, it must be able to give up the console.
However, the function give_up_console() is plain broken.  It just sets the
entries in the console driver map to NULL, it leaves the vt layer without a
console driver, and does not decrement the module reference count.  Calling
give_up_console() is guaranteed to hang the machine..

To fix this problem, ensure that the virtual consoles are not left dangling
without a driver.  All systems have a default boot driver (either vgacon or
dummycon) which is never unloaded.  For those vt's that lost their driver, the
default boot driver is reassigned back to them.

13 years ago[PATCH] Detaching fbcon: fix vgacon to allow retaking of the console
Antonino A. Daplas [Mon, 26 Jun 2006 07:27:02 +0000]
[PATCH] Detaching fbcon: fix vgacon to allow retaking of the console

One of the limitations of the framebuffer console system is its inablity to
unload or detach itself from the console layer.  And once it loads, it also
locks in framebuffer drivers preventing their unload. Although the con2fbmap
utility does provide a means to unload individual drivers, it requires that at
least one framebuffer driver is loaded for use by fbcon.

With this change, it is possible to detach fbcon from the console layer. If it
is detached, it will reattach the boot console driver (which is permanently
loaded) back to the console layer so the system can continue to work.  As a
consequence, fbcon will also decrement its reference count of individual
framebuffer drivers, allowing all of these drivers to be unloaded even if
fbcon is still loaded.

Unless you use drivers that restores the display to text mode (rivafb and
i810fb, for example), detaching fbcon does require assistance from userspace
tools (ie, vbetools) for text mode to be restored completely.  Without the
help of these tools, fbcon will leave the VGA console corrupted. The methods
that can be used will be described in Documentation/fb/fbcon.txt.

Because the vt layer also increments the module reference count for each
console driver, fbcon cannot be directly unloaded.  It must be detached first
prior to unload.

Similarly, fbcon can be reattached to the console layer without having to
reload the module.  A nice feature if fbcon is compiled statically.

Attaching and detaching fbcon is done via sysfs attributes. A class device
entry for fbcon is created in /sys/class/graphics. The two attributes that
controls this feature are detach and attach. Two other attributes that are
piggybacked under /sys/class/graphics/fb[n] that are fbcon-specific,
'con_rotate' and 'con_rotate_all' are moved to fbcon.  They are renamed as
'rotate' and 'rotate_all' respectively.

Overall, this feature is a great help for developers working in the
framebuffer or console layer.  There is not need to continually reboot the
kernel for every small change. It is also useful for regular users who wants
to choose between a graphical console or a text console without having to
reboot.

Example usage for x86:

/* start in text mode */
modprobe xxxfb
modprobe fbcon
/* graphical mode with fbcon using xxxfb */
echo 1 > /sys/class/graphics/fbcon/detach
/* back to text mode, will produce corrupt display unless vbetool is used */
rmmod xxxfb
modprobe yyyfb
/* back to graphical mode with fbcon using yyyfb */

Before trying out this feature, please read Documentation/fb/fbcon.txt.

This patch:

In order for fbcon to detach itself from the console layer, vgacon, which is a
boot console driver, must be fixed so it can retake the console multiple
times, not just during init.  The following needs to be done:

- remove __init from the vgacon_startup, this is called again by
  take_over_console().

- vc->rows and vc->cols are set manually by vgacon during init. After init,
  vc_resize() can be used

- make sure the scrollback_buffer is not reallocated

[PATCH] neofb: fix unblank logic interfering with lid toggled backlight

This is a fix for the most annoying problem that remained with neofb:

After "setterm -powersave powerdown" the console blanker will disable the
backlight after the given timeout expires.  If this happens after the lid
has been shut, we read "LCD off" from the register and store that in the
driver.  Once the lid is opened, the backlight turns on, but any key press
that would awaken the blanked console will switch the backlight off again.

The workaround so far was to use the "display config toggle" Fn key combo -
once if no external display is attached, otherwise as often as required to
restore the desired display setup.

The following patch fixes the issue at least for the LCD-only case, with no
external monitor attached.  Other display setup permutations are pending
further testing, but so far I can guarantee at least no negative change in
behaviour, if any at all.

the display class.  Unsupported chipsets will then be filtered out by

[PATCH] fbdev: More accurate sync range extrapolation

The EDID block should specify the display's operating limits (vertical and
horizontal sync ranges, and maximum dot clock).  If not given by the EDID
block, the ranges are extrapolated from the modelist.  However, the
computation used is only a rough approximation, and the resulting values may
not reflect the actual capability of the display.  This problem is frequently
encountered when the EDID block has a single entry, the single mode entry will
fail validation.

To prevent this, calculate the values based on the same method used in
fb_validate_mode().

[PATCH] savagefb: Add state save and_restore hooks

Reported by: Rich (Bugzilla Bug 6417)

"if savage driver is used in x.org together with savagefb, it results in
seriously garbled and distorted screen - coupled with severe slowdowns."

This bug is the result of Xorg unable to handle savagefb altering the
hardware which results in X failing to start properly and/or failed console
switching.

Add savagefb_state_save and savagefb_state_restore. These hooks will only
save and restore the extended VGA registers.  Standard VGA registers will be
left alone.  This is enough to make savagefb play nicely with the latest
Xorg savage driver, and perhaps with savage DRI. (Transient screen artifacts
may appear before X loads and during console switches).

(Unfortunately, blanking the screen also leaves Xorg in a blanked state, so I
have to unblank the screen before Xorg loads.  So I doubt if the transient
screen artifacts will be completely invisible but hopefully it will only be
for a shorter duration (not much).)

ide_dump_ata[pi]_status() doesnt do that - it enables interrupts specifically.
 That is a no-no - what guarantees that another IDE port couldnt generate an
IDE interrupt while we are dumping this error?  The fix is to turn the
irq-enabling in these functions into irq-disabling.

[PATCH] ide: pdc202xx_old: remove the obsolete busproc

Remove the busproc from pdc202xx_old.c because:

- it handles the obsolete HDIO_TRISTATE_HWIF ioctl instead of the modern
  HDIO_SET_BUSSTATE, so treats its argument wrong;

- I don't think that tristating both channels is good idea (probably can't

The function ide_timing_compute() fails to *actually* take drive's

calls ide_timing_merge() on the 'struct ide_timing' argument which contains

Oleg Nesterov [Mon, 26 Jun 2006 07:26:08 +0000]
[PATCH] coredump: don't take tasklist_lock

This patch removes tasklist_lock from zap_threads().
This is safe wrt:

do_exit:
The caller holds mm->mmap_sem. This means that task which
shares the same ->mm can't pass exit_mm(), so it can't be
unhashed from init_task.tasks or ->thread_group lists.

fork:
None of sub-threads can fork after zap_process(leader). All
processes which were created before this point should be
visible to zap_threads() because copy_process() adds the new
process to the tail of init_task.tasks list, and ->siglock
lock/unlock provides a memory barrier.

de_thread:
It does list_replace_rcu(&leader->tasks, &current->tasks).
So zap_threads() will see either old or new leader, it does
not matter. However, it can change p->sighand, so we should
use lock_task_sighand() in zap_process().

[PATCH] SELinux: Add sockcreate node to procattr API

Below is a patch to add a new /proc/self/attr/sockcreate A process may write a
context into this interface and all subsequent sockets created will be labeled
with that context.  This is the same idea as the fscreate interface where a
process can specify the label of a file about to be created.  At this time one
envisioned user of this will be xinetd.  It will be able to better label
sockets for the actual services.  At this time all sockets take the label of
the creating process, so all xinitd sockets would just be labeled the same.

I tested this by creating a tcp sender and listener.  The sender was able to
write to this new proc file and then create sockets with the specified label.
I am able to be sure the new label was used since the avc denial messages
kicked out by the kernel included both the new security permission
setsockcreate and all the socket denials were for the new label, not the label
of the running process.

[PATCH] proc: Cleanup proc_fd_access_allowed

In process of getting proc_fd_access_allowed to work it has developed a few
warts.  In particular the special case that always allows introspection and
the special case to allow inspection of kernel threads.

The special case for introspection is needed for /proc/self/mem.

The special case for kernel threads really should be overridable
by security modules.

So consolidate these checks into ptrace.c:may_attach().

The check to always allow introspection is trivial.

The check to allow access to kernel threads, and zombies is a little
trickier.  mem_read and mem_write already verify an mm exists so it isn't
needed twice.  proc_fd_access_allowed only doesn't want a check to verify
task->mm exits, s it prevents all access to kernel threads.  So just move
the task->mm check into ptrace_attach where it is needed for practical
reasons.

I did a quick audit and none of the security modules in the kernel seem to
care if they are passed a task without an mm into security_ptrace.  So the
above move should be safe and it allows security modules to come up with
more restrictive policy.

13 years ago[PATCH] proc: Use sane permission checks on the /proc/<pid>/fd/ symlinks
Eric W. Biederman [Mon, 26 Jun 2006 07:25:58 +0000]
[PATCH] proc: Use sane permission checks on the /proc/<pid>/fd/ symlinks

Since 2.2 we have been doing a chroot check to see if it is appropriate to
return a read or follow one of these magic symlinks.  The chroot check was
asking a question about the visibility of files to the calling process and
it was actually checking the destination process, and not the files
themselves.  That test was clearly bogus.

In my first pass through I simply fixed the test to check the visibility of
the files themselves.  That naive approach to fixing the permissions was
too strict and resulted in cases where a task could not even see all of
it's file descriptors.

What has disturbed me about relaxing this check is that file descriptors
are per-process private things, and they are occasionaly used a user space
capability tokens.  Looking a little farther into the symlink path on /proc
I did find userid checks and a check for capability (CAP_DAC_OVERRIDE) so
there were permissions checking this.

But I was still concerned about privacy.  Besides /proc there is only one
other way to find out this kind of information, and that is ptrace.  ptrace
has been around for a long time and it has a well established security
model.

So after thinking about it I finally realized that the permission checks
that make sense are the permission checks applied to ptrace_attach.  The
checks are simple per process, and won't cause nasty surprises for people
coming from less capable unices.

Unfortunately there is one case that the current ptrace_attach test does
not cover: Zombies and kernel threads.  Single stepping those kinds of
processes is impossible.  Being able to see which file descriptors are open
on these tasks is important to lsof, fuser and friends.  So for these
special processes I made the rule you can't find out unless you have
CAP_SYS_PTRACE.

These proc permission checks should now conform to the principle of least
surprise.  As well as using much less code to implement :)

The code doesn't need to sleep to when making this check so I can just do the

TODO: While looking at this I realized that my original cleanup did not push
the permission check far enough down into the stack.  The call of
proc_check_dentry_visible needs to move out of the generic proc
readlink/follow link code and into the individual get_link instances.
Otherwise the shared resources checks are not quite correct (shared

unshare.

[PATCH] proc: don't lock task_structs indefinitely

Every inode in /proc holds a reference to a struct task_struct.  If a
directory or file is opened and remains open after the the task exits this
pinning continues.  With 8K stacks on a 32bit machine the amount pinned per
file descriptor is about 10K.

Normally I would figure a reasonable per user process limit is about 100
processes.  With 80 processes, with a 1000 file descriptors each I can trigger
the 00M killer on a 32bit kernel, because I have pinned about 800MB of useless
data.

This patch replaces the struct task_struct pointer with a pointer to a struct
task_ref which has a struct task_struct pointer.  The so the pinning of dead
tasks does not happen.

The code now has to contend with the fact that the task may now exit at any
time.  Which is a little but not muh more complicated.

With this change it takes about 1000 processes each opening up 1000 file

[PATCH] proc: make PROC_NUMBUF the buffer size for holding integers as strings

Currently in /proc at several different places we define buffers to hold a
process id, or a file descriptor .  In most of them we use either a hard coded
number or a different define.  Modify them all to use PROC_NUMBUF, so the code
has a chance of being maintained.

13 years ago[PATCH] proc: refactor reading directories of tasks
Eric W. Biederman [Mon, 26 Jun 2006 07:25:50 +0000]
[PATCH] proc: refactor reading directories of tasks

There are a couple of problems this patch addresses.
- /proc/<tgid>/task currently does not work correctly if you stop reading
  in the middle of a directory.

- /proc/ currently requires a full pass through the task list with
  the tasklist lock held, to determine there are no more processes to read.

- The hand rolled integer to string conversion does not properly running
  out of buffer space.

- We seem to be batching reading of pids from the tasklist without reason,
  and complicating the logic of the code.

This patch addresses that by changing how tasks are processed.  A
first_<task_type> function is built that handles restarts, and a
next_<task_type> function is built that just advances to the next task.

first_<task_type> when it detects a restart usually uses find_task_by_pid.  If
that doesn't work because there has been a seek on the directory, or we have
already given a complete directory listing, it first checks the number tasks
of that type, and only if we are under that count does it walk through all of
the tasks to find the one we are interested in.

The code that fills in the directory is simpler because there is only a single
for loop.

The hand rolled integer to string conversion is replaced by snprintf which
should handle the the out of buffer case correctly.

Eric W. Biederman [Mon, 26 Jun 2006 07:25:49 +0000]
[PATCH] proc: Close the race of a process dying durning lookup

proc_lookup and task exiting are not synchronized, although some of the
previous code may have suggested that.  Every time before we reuse a dentry
namei.c calls d_op->derevalidate which prevents us from reusing a stale dcache
entry.  Unfortunately it does not prevent us from returning a stale dcache
entry.  This race has been explicitly plugged in proc_pid_lookup but there is
nothing to confine it to just that proc lookup function.

So to prevent the race I call revalidate explictily in all of the proc lookup
functions after I call d_add, and report an error if the revalidate does not
succeed.

Years ago Al Viro did something similar but those changes got lost in the
churn.

[PATCH] proc: Rewrite the proc dentry flush on exit optimization

To keep the dcache from filling up with dead /proc entries we flush them on

I have rewritten this code to look and see if we have a corresponding entry in
the dcache and if so flush it on process exit.  This removes the extra fields
in the task_struct and allows me to trivially handle the case of a
/proc/<tgid>/task/<pid> entry as well as the current /proc/<pid> entries.

Eric W. Biederman [Mon, 26 Jun 2006 07:25:46 +0000]
[PATCH] proc: Properly filter out files that are not visible to a process

Long ago and far away in 2.2 we started checking to ensure the files we
displayed in /proc were visible to the current process.  It was an
unsophisticated time and no one was worried about functions full of FIXMES in
a stable kernel.  As time passed the function became sacred and was enshrined
in the shrine of how things have always been.  The fixes came in but only to
keep the function working no one really remembering or documenting why we did
things that way.

The intent and the functionality make a lot of sense.  Don't let /proc be an
access point for files a process can see no other way.  The implementation
however is completely wrong.

We are currently checking the root directories of the two processes, we are
not checking the actual file descriptors themselves.

We are strangely checking with a permission method instead of just when we use
the data.

This patch fixes the logic to actually check the file descriptors and make a
note that implementing a permission method for this part of /proc almost
certainly indicates a bug in the reasoning.

Eric W. Biederman [Mon, 26 Jun 2006 07:25:43 +0000]
[PATCH] proc: Simplify the ownership rules for /proc

Currently in /proc if the task is dumpable all of files are owned by the tasks
effective users.  Otherwise the files are owned by root.  Unless it is the
/proc/<tgid>/ or /proc/<tgid>/task/<pid> directory in that case we always make
the directory owned by the effective user.

However the special case for directories is pointless except as a way to read
the effective user, because the permissions on both of those directories are
world readable, and executable.

/proc/<tgid>/status provides a much better way to read a processes effecitve
userid, so it is silly to try to provide that on the directory.

So this patch simplifies the code by removing a pointless special case and
gets us one step closer to being able to remove the hard coded /proc inode
numbers.

I noticed recently that my CONFIG_CRYPTO_MD5 turned into a y again instead

In general when we have a bool sitting under a tristate it is better to
select things you need from the tristate rather than the bool since that
allows the things you select to be modules.

 <0>Kernel panic - not syncing: Fatal exception in interrupt

That oops took me to the "ackqueue" implementation in capi.c.  The crash
occured in capincci_add_ack() (auto-inlined by the compiler).

I read the code a bit and finally decided to replace the custom linked list
implementation (struct capiminor->ackqueue) by a struct list_head.  That
did not solve the crash, but produced the following interresting oops:

The interresting part of it is the "virtual address 00200200", which is
LIST_POISON2.  I thought about some race condition, but as this is an UP
system, it leads to questions on how it can happen.  If we look at EFLAGS:
00010202, we see that interrupts are enabled at the time of the crash
(eflags & 0x200).

Finally, I don't understand all the capi code, but I think that
handle_minor_send() is racing somehow against capi_recv_message(), which
call both capiminor_del_ack().  So if an IRQ occurs in the middle of
capiminor_del_ack() and another instance of it is invoked, it leads to
linked list corruption.

I came up with the following patch.  With this, I could not reproduce the
crash anymore.  Clearly, this is not the correct fix for the issue.  As this
seems to be some locking issue, there might be more locking issues in that
code.  For example, doesn't the whole struct capiminor have to be locked
somehow?

13 years ago[PATCH] Notify page fault call chain
Anil S Keshavamurthy [Mon, 26 Jun 2006 07:25:29 +0000]
[PATCH] Notify page fault call chain

With this patch Kprobes now registers for page fault notifications only when
their is an active probe registered.  Once all the active probes are
unregistered their is no need to be notified of page faults and kprobes
unregisters itself from the page fault notifications.  Hence we will have ZERO
side effects when no probes are active.
