[PATCH] selinux: enhance selinux to always ignore private inodes

Hmmm...turns out to not be quite enough, as the /proc/sys inodes aren't truly
private to the fs, so we can run into them in a variety of security hooks
beyond just the inode hooks, such as security_file_permission (when reading
and writing them via the vfs helpers), security_sb_mount (when mounting other
filesystems on directories in proc like binfmt_misc), and deeper within the
security module itself (as in flush_unauthorized_files upon inheritance across
execve).  So I think we have to add an IS_PRIVATE() guard within SELinux, as
below.  Note however that the use of the private flag here could be confusing,
as these inodes are _not_ private to the fs, are exposed to userspace, and
security modules must implement the sysctl hook to get any access control over
them.

12 years ago[PATCH] sysctl: reimplement the sysctl proc support
Eric W. Biederman [Wed, 14 Feb 2007 08:34:12 +0000]
[PATCH] sysctl: reimplement the sysctl proc support

With this change the sysctl inodes can be cached and nothing needs to be done
when removing a sysctl table.

For a cost of 2K code we will save about 4K of static tables (when we remove
de from ctl_table) and 70K in proc_dir_entries that we will not allocate, or
about half that on a 32bit arch.

The speed feels about the same, even though we can now cache the sysctl
dentries :(

We get the core advantage that we don't need to have a 1 to 1 mapping between
ctl table entries and proc files.  Making it possible to have /proc/sys vary
depending on the namespace you are in.  The currently merged namespaces don't
have an issue here but the network namespace under /proc/sys/net needs to have
different directories depending on which network adapters are visible.  By
simply being a cache different directories being visible depending on who you
are is trivial to implement.

[PATCH] sysctl: factor out sysctl_head_next from do_sysctl

The current logic to walk through the list of sysctl table headers is slightly
painful and implement in a way it cannot be used by code outside sysctl.c

I am in the process of implementing a version of the sysctl proc support that
instead of using the proc generic non-caching monster, just uses the existing
sysctl data structure as backing store for building the dcache entries and for
doing directory reads.  To use the existing data structures however I need a
way to get at them.

Eric W. Biederman [Wed, 14 Feb 2007 08:34:09 +0000]
[PATCH] sysctl: remove insert_at_head from register_sysctl

The semantic effect of insert_at_head is that it would allow new registered
sysctl entries to override existing sysctl entries of the same name.  Which is
pain for caching and the proc interface never implemented.

I have done an audit and discovered that none of the current users of
register_sysctl care as (excpet for directories) they do not register
duplicate sysctl entries.

So this patch simply removes the support for overriding existing entries in
the sys_sysctl interface since no one uses it or cares and it makes future
enhancments harder.

Eric W. Biederman [Wed, 14 Feb 2007 08:33:44 +0000]
[PATCH] sysctl: C99 convert arch/mips/lasat/sysctl.c and remove ABI breakage

While C99 converting the ctl_table initializers I realized that the binary
sysctl numbers were in conflict with the binary values under CTL_KERN.
Including CTL_KERN KERN_VERSION as used by glibc.  So I just removed the
sysctl binary interface for these values, as it was unsupportable.

Luckily these sysctl were inserted at the end of the sysctl list so this bug
was not visible to userspace.

The assignment of binary numbers for sys_sysctl use was in shambles and

Eric W. Biederman [Wed, 14 Feb 2007 08:33:40 +0000]
[PATCH] sysctl: sn: remove sysctl ABI BREAKAGE

By not using the enumeration in sysctl.h (or even understanding it) the SN
platform placed their arch specific xpc directory on top of CTL_KERN and only
because they didn't have 4 entries in their xpc directory got lucky and didn't
break glibc.

This is totally irresponsible.  So this patch entirely removes sys_sysctl
support from their sysctl code.  Hopefully they don't have ascii name
conflicts as well.

And now that they have no ABI numbers add them to the end instead of the
sysctl list instead of the head so nothing else will be overridden.

[PATCH] sysctl: cdrom: don't set de->owner

There is no need for open files in /proc/sys/XXX to hold a reference count on
the module that provides the file to prevent module unload races.  While there
is code active in the module p->used in the sysctl_table_header is
incremented, preventing the sysctl from being unregisted.  Once the sysctl is
unregistered it cannot be found.  Open files are also not a problem as they
revalidate the sysctl information and bump p->used before accessing module
code.

So setting de->owner is unnecessary, makes for a bad example and gets in my
way of removing ctl_table->de.

Eric W. Biederman [Wed, 14 Feb 2007 08:33:21 +0000]
[PATCH] sysctl: x25: remove unnecessary insert_at_head from register_sysctl_table

There has not been much maintenance on sysctl in years, and as a result is
there is a lot to do to allow future interesting work to happen, and being
ambitious I'm trying to do it all at once :)

The patches in this series fall into several general categories.

- Removal of useless attempts to override the standard sysctls

- Registers of sysctl numbers in sysctl.h so someone else does not use
  the magic number and conflict.

- C99 conversions so it becomes possible to change the layout of
  struct ctl_table without breaking everything.

- Removal of useless claims of module ownership, in the proc dir entries

- Removal of sys_sysctl support where people had used conflicting sysctl
  numbers. Trying to break glibc or other applications by changing the
  ABI is not cool.  9 instances of this in the kernel seems a little
  extreme.

- General enhancements when I got the junk I could see out.

This patch:

Since x25 uses unique binary numbers inserting yourself at the head of the
search list for sysctls so you can override already registered sysctls is
pointless.

12 years ago[PATCH] remove many unneeded #includes of sched.h
Tim Schmielau [Wed, 14 Feb 2007 08:33:14 +0000]
[PATCH] remove many unneeded #includes of sched.h

After Al Viro (finally) succeeded in removing the sched.h #include in module.h
recently, it makes sense again to remove other superfluous sched.h includes.
There are quite a lot of files which include it but don't actually need
anything defined in there.  Presumably these includes were once needed for
macros that used to live in sched.h, but moved to other header files in the
course of cleaning it up.

To ease the pain, this time I did not fiddle with any header files and only
removed #includes from .c-files, which tend to cause less trouble.

Compile tested against 2.6.20-rc2 and 2.6.20-rc2-mm2 (with offsets) on alpha,
arm, i386, ia64, mips, powerpc, and x86_64 with allnoconfig, defconfig,
allmodconfig, and allyesconfig as well as a few randconfigs on x86_64 and all
configs in arch/arm/configs on arm.  I also checked that no new warnings were
introduced by the patch (actually, some warnings are removed that were emitted
by unnecessarily included header files).

[PATCH] knfsd: allow the server to provide a gid list when using AUTH_UNIX authentication

AUTH_UNIX authentication (the standard with NFS) has a limit of 16 groups ids.
 This causes problems for people in more than 16 groups.

So allow the server to map a uid into a list of group ids based on local
knowledge rather depending on the (possibly truncated) list from the client.

If there is no process on the server responding to upcalls, the gidlist in the
request will still be used.

[PATCH] knfsd: add some new fsid types

Add support for using a filesystem UUID to identify and export point in the
filehandle.

For NFSv2, this UUID is xor-ed down to 4 or 8 bytes so that it doesn't take up
too much room.  For NFSv3+, we use the full 16 bytes, and possibly also a
64bit inode number for exports beneath the root of a filesystem.

When generating an fsid to return in 'stat' information, use the UUID (hashed
down to size) if it is available and a small 'fsid' was not specifically
provided.

[PATCH] knfsd: tidy up choice of filesystem-identifier when creating a filehandle

If we are using the same version/fsid as a current filehandle, then there is
no need to verify the the numbers are valid for this export, and they must be
(we used them to find this export).

This allows us to simplify the fsid selection code.

Also change "ref_fh_version" and "ref_fh_fsid_type" to "version" and
"fsid_type", as the important thing isn't that they are the version/type of
the reference filehandle, but they are the chosen type for the new filehandle.

And tidy up some indenting.

[PATCH] knfsd: fix return value for writes to some files in 'nfsd' filesystem

Most files in the 'nfsd' filesystem are transactional.  When you write, a
reply is generated that can be read back only on the same 'file'.

If the reply has zero length, the 'write' will incorrectly return a value of

12 years ago[PATCH] 8250 UART backup timer
Alex Williamson [Wed, 14 Feb 2007 08:33:04 +0000]
[PATCH] 8250 UART backup timer

The patch below works around a minor bug found in the UART of the remote
management card used in many HP ia64 and parisc servers (aka the Diva
UARTs).  The problem is that the UART does not reassert the THRE interrupt
if it has been previously cleared and the IIR THRI bit is re-enabled.  This
can produce a very annoying failure mode when used as a serial console,
allowing a boot/reboot to hang indefinitely until an RX interrupt kicks it
into working again (ie.  an unattended reboot could stall).

To solve this problem, a backup timer is introduced that runs alongside the
standard interrupt driven mechanism.  This timer wakes up periodically,
checks for a hang condition and gets characters moving again.  This backup
mechanism is only enabled if the UART is detected as having this problem,
so systems without these UARTs will have no additional overhead.

This version of the patch incorporates previous comments from Pavel and
removes races in the bug detection code.  The test is now done before the
irq linking to prevent races with interrupt handler clearing the THRE
interrupt.  Short delays and syncs are also added to ensure the device is
able to update register state before the result is tested.

Aristeu says:

  this was tested on the following HP machines and solved the problem:
  rx2600, rx2620, rx1600 and rx1620s.

hpa says:

  I have seen this same bug in soft UART IP from "a major vendor."

[PATCH] ia64: fix noncoherent DMA API so devres builds

On ia64, drivers/base/dma-mapping.c doesn't build because it calls
dma_alloc_noncoherent() and dma_free_noncoherent(), which appear to be
terminally broken; the calls end up generating errors like

    drivers/base/dma-mapping.c: In function 'dmam_noncoherent_release':
    drivers/base/dma-mapping.c:32: error: 'struct ia64_machine_vector' has no member named 'platform_dma_free_coherent'

because the multiple levels of macro expansion in <asm/dma-mapping.h> and
<asm/machvec.h> end up turning a call to dma_free_noncoherent() into
ia64_mv.platform_dma_free_coherent (instead of the intended
ia64_mv.dma_free_coherent).

This patch fixes this by converting dma_{alloc,free}_noncoherent() into
inline functions that call the corresponding coherent functions, instead of
trying to do this with macros.

12 years ago[POWERPC] Use udbg_early_init() on ppc32
David Gibson [Tue, 13 Feb 2007 04:54:22 +0000]
[POWERPC] Use udbg_early_init() on ppc32

udbg_early_init() is a function used on 64 bit systems, which
initializes whichever early udbg backend is configured.  This function
is not called on 32-bit, however if btext early debug is enabled it
does have an explicit, inline, #ifdef-ed assignment performing
analagous initialization.

This patch makes things more uniform by folding the btext
initialization as an option into udbg_early_init() and calling that
from the 32-bit setup path.

[POWERPC] Open Firmware serial port driver

This can be used for serial ports that are connected to an
OF platform bus but are not autodetected by the lecacy
serial support.
It will automatically take over devices that come from the
legacy serial detection, which usually is only one device.

In some cases, rtas may be set up to use the serial port
in the firmware, which allows easier debugging before probing
the serial ports. In this case, the "used-by-rtas" property
must be set by the firmware. This patch also adds code to the
legacy serial driver to check for this.

Provide helpers for setting up ppc_md.kexec_cpu_down, so that we don't

Move the initialisation of the ppc_md kexec callbacks into an init routine.
This is well and truly early enough to cause no change in behaviour, we
can't kexec until userspace has given us a kernel to kexec into.
