fanotify: enable close-on-exec on events' fd when requested in fanotify_init()
According to commit 80af258867648 ("fanotify: groups can specify their f_flags for new fd"), file descriptors created as part of file access notification events inherit flags from the event_f_flags argument passed to syscall fanotify_init(2)[1]. Unfortunately O_CLOEXEC is currently silently ignored. Indeed, event_f_flags are only given to dentry_open(), which only seems to care about O_ACCMODE and O_PATH in do_dentry_open(), O_DIRECT in open_check_o_direct() and O_LARGEFILE in generic_file_open(). It's a pity, since, according to some lookup on various search engines and http://codesearch.debian.net/, there's already some userspace code which use O_CLOEXEC: - in systemd's readahead[2]: fanotify_fd = fanotify_init(FAN_CLOEXEC|FAN_NONBLOCK, O_RDONLY|O_LARGEFILE|O_CLOEXEC|O_NOATIME); - in clsync[3]: #define FANOTIFY_EVFLAGS (O_LARGEFILE|O_RDONLY|O_CLOEXEC) int fanotify_d = fanotify_init(FANOTIFY_FLAGS, FANOTIFY_EVFLAGS); - in examples [4] from "Filesystem monitoring in the Linux kernel" article[5] by Aleksander Morgado: if ((fanotify_fd = fanotify_init (FAN_CLOEXEC, O_RDONLY | O_CLOEXEC | O_LARGEFILE)) < 0) Additionally, since commit 48149e9d3a7e ("fanotify: check file flags passed in fanotify_init"). having O_CLOEXEC as part of fanotify_init() second argument is expressly allowed. So it seems expected to set close-on-exec flag on the file descriptors if userspace is allowed to request it with O_CLOEXEC. But Andrew Morton raised[6] the concern that enabling now close-on-exec might break existing applications which ask for O_CLOEXEC but expect the file descriptor to be inherited across exec(). In the other hand, as reported by Mihai Dontu[7] close-on-exec on the file descriptor returned as part of file access notify can break applications due to deadlock. So close-on-exec is needed for most applications. More, applications asking for close-on-exec are likely expecting it to be enabled, relying on O_CLOEXEC being effective. If not, it might weaken their security, as noted by Jan Kara[8]. So this patch replaces call to macro get_unused_fd() by a call to function get_unused_fd_flags() with event_f_flags value as argument. This way O_CLOEXEC flag in the second argument of fanotify_init(2) syscall is interpreted and close-on-exec get enabled when requested.
