AUDIT: Send netlink messages from a separate kernel thread

netlink_unicast() will attempt to reallocate and will free messages if
the socket's rcvbuf limit is reached unless we give it an infinite
timeout. So do that, from a kernel thread which is dedicated to spewing

AUDIT: Clean up logging of untrusted strings

* If vsnprintf returns -1, it will mess up the sk buffer space accounting.
This is fixed by not calling skb_put with bogus len values.

* audit_log_hex was a loop that called audit_log_vformat with %02X for each
character. This is very inefficient since conversion from unsigned character
to Ascii representation is essentially masking, shifting, and byte lookups.
Also, the length of the converted string is well known - it's twice the
original. Fixed by rewriting the function.

* audit_log_untrustedstring had no comments. This makes it hard for
someone to understand what the string format will be.

* audit_log_d_path was never fixed to use untrustedstring. This could mess
up user space parsers. This was fixed to make a temp buffer, call d_path,
and log temp buffer using untrustedstring.

[PATCH] Fix root hole in raw device

[Patch] Fix raw device ioctl pass-through

Raw character devices are supposed to pass ioctls through to the block
devices they are bound to.  Unfortunately, they are using the wrong
function for this: ioctl_by_bdev(), instead of blkdev_ioctl().

ioctl_by_bdev() performs a set_fs(KERNEL_DS) before calling the ioctl,
redirecting the user-space buffer access to the kernel address space.
This is, needless to say, a bad thing.

This was noticed first on s390, where raw IO was non-functioning.  The
s390 driver config does not actually allow raw IO to be enabled, which
was the first part of the problem.  Secondly, the s390 kernel address
space is distinct from user, causing legal raw ioctls to fail.  I've
reproduced this on a kernel built with 4G:4G split on x86, which fails
in the same way (-EFAULT if the address does not exist kernel-side;
returns success without actually populating the user buffer if it does.)

The patch below fixes both the config and address-space problems.  It's
based closely on a patch by Jan Glauber <jang@de.ibm.com>, which has
been tested on s390 at IBM.  I've tested it on x86 4G:4G (split address
space) and x86_64 (common address space).

Kernel-address-space access has been assigned CAN-2005-1264.

17 years ago[PATCH] uml: Fix process exit race
Bodo Stroesser [Sat, 7 May 2005 04:30:54 +0000 (21:30 -0700)]
[PATCH] uml: Fix process exit race

tt-mode closes switch_pipes in exit_thread_tt and kills processes in
switch_to_tt, if the exit_state is EXIT_DEAD or EXIT_ZOMBIE.

In very rare cases the exiting process can be scheduled out after having set
exit_state and closed switch_pipes (from release_task it calls proc_pid_flush,
which might sleep).  If this process is to be restarted, UML failes in
switch_to_tt with:

   write of switch_pipe failed, err = 9

We fix this by closing switch_pipes not in exit_thread_tt, but later in
release_thread_tt.  Additionally, we set switch_pipe[0] = 0 after closing.
switch_to_tt must not kill "from" process depending on its exit_state, but
must kill it after release_thread was processed only, so it examines
switch_pipe[0] for its decision.

The attached patch addresses the problem with getting the audit daemon
shutdown credential information. It creates a new message type
AUDIT_TERM_INFO, which is used by the audit daemon to query who issued the

It requires the placement of a hook function that gathers the information. The
hook is after the DAC & MAC checks and before the function returns. Racing
threads could overwrite the uid & pid - but they would have to be root and

manageable risk.

The userspace component will be released later in audit 0.7.2. When it
receives the TERM signal, it queries the kernel for shutdown information.
When it receives it, it writes the message and exits. The message looks

[PATCH] ppc64: fix prom.c compile warning

The code in unflatten_device_tree knows that get_property is written to
only return with lenp equal to 1 when also returning a valid pointer.
The gcc 3.3.3 compiler is not able to prove this to itself, so it warns
about a possible uninitialized pointer dereference:

 .../arch/ppc64/kernel/prom.c: In function `unflatten_device_tree':
 .../arch/ppc64/kernel/prom.c:828:
 warning: `p' might be used uninitialized in this function

Unless it is desired to rework the interaction between the two
functions, this will keep the existing behavior but quiet the compiler.
