Commit 3efee0567b4a ("fs: remove mandatory file locking support") removes some operations in functions rw_verify_area(). As these functions are now simplified, do some syntactic clean-up as follow-up to the removal as well, which was pointed out by compiler warnings and static analysis. No functional change.

2021-08-23fs: remove mandatory file locking supportJeff Layton1-7/+0
We added CONFIG_MANDATORY_FILE_LOCKING in 2015, and soon after turned it off in Fedora and RHEL8. Several other distros have followed suit. I've heard of one problem in all that time: Someone migrated from an older distro that supported "-o mand" to one that didn't, and the host had a fstab entry with "mand" in it which broke on reboot. They didn't actually _use_ mandatory locking so they just removed the mount option and moved on. This patch rips out mandatory locking support wholesale from the kernel, along with the Kconfig option and the Documentation file. It also changes the mount code to ignore the "mand" mount option instead of erroring out, and to throw a big, ugly warning. Signed-off-by: Jeff Layton <jlayton@kernel.org>

2020-09-29autofs: use __kernel_write() for the autofs pipe writingLinus Torvalds1-0/+8
autofs got broken in some configurations by commit 13c164b1a186 ("autofs: switch to kernel_write") because there is now an extra LSM permission check done by security_file_permission() in rw_verify_area(). autofs is one if the few places that really does want the much more limited __kernel_write(), because the write is an internal kernel one that shouldn't do any user permission checks (it also doesn't need the file_start_write/file_end_write logic, since it's just a pipe). There are a couple of other cases like that - accounting, core dumping, and splice - but autofs stands out because it can be built as a module. As a result, we need to export this internal __kernel_write() function again. We really don't want any other module to use this, but we don't have a "EXPORT_SYMBOL_FOR_AUTOFS_ONLY()". But we can mark it GPL-only to at least approximate that "internal use only" for licensing. While in this area, make autofs pass in NULL for the file position pointer, since it's always a pipe, and we now use a NULL file pointer for streaming file descriptors (see file_ppos() and commit 438ab720c675: "vfs: pass ppos=NULL to .read()/.write() of FMODE_STREAM files") This effectively reverts commits 9db977522449 ("fs: unexport __kernel_write") and 13c164b1a186 ("autofs: switch to kernel_write").

2020-09-08fs: don't allow splice read/write without explicit opsChristoph Hellwig1-1/+1
default_file_splice_write is the last piece of generic code that uses set_fs to make the uaccess routines operate on kernel pointers. It implements a "fallback loop" for splicing from files that do not actually provide a proper splice_read method. The usual file systems and other high bandwidth instances all provide a ->splice_read, so this just removes support for various device drivers and procfs/debugfs files. If splice support for any of those turns out to be important it can be added back by switching them to the iter ops and using generic_file_splice_read.

2020-01-23fs: allow deduplication of eof block into the end of the destination fileFilipe Manana1-6/+4
We always round down, to a multiple of the filesystem's block size, the length to deduplicate at generic_remap_check_len(). However this is only needed if an attempt to deduplicate the last block into the middle of the destination file is requested, since that leads into a corruption if the length of the source file is not block size aligned. When an attempt to deduplicate the last block into the end of the destination file is requested, we should allow it because it is safe to do it - there's no stale data exposure and we are prepared to compare the data ranges for a length not aligned to the block (or page) size - in fact we even do the data compare before adjusting the deduplication length. After btrfs was updated to use the generic helpers from VFS (by commit 34a28e3d77535e ("Btrfs: use generic_remap_file_range_prep() for cloning and deduplication")) we started to have user reports of deduplication not reflinking the last block anymore, and whence users getting lower deduplication scores. The main use case is deduplication of entire files that have a size not aligned to the block size of the filesystem. We already allow cloning the last block to the end (and beyond) of the destination file, so allow for deduplication as well.

2019-08-16vfs: fix page locking deadlocks when deduping filesDarrick J. Wong1-8/+41
When dedupe wants to use the page cache to compare parts of two files for dedupe, we must be very careful to handle locking correctly. The current code doesn't do this. It must lock and unlock the page only once if the two pages are the same, since the overlapping range check doesn't catch this when blocksize < pagesize. If the pages are distinct but from the same file, we must observe page locking order and lock them in order of increasing offset to avoid clashing with writeback locking.

2019-06-09vfs: allow copy_file_range to copy across devicesAmir Goldstein1-6/+12
We want to enable cross-filesystem copy_file_range functionality where possible, so push the "same superblock only" checks down to the individual filesystem callouts so they can make their own decisions about cross-superblock copy offload and fallack to generic_copy_file_range() for cross-superblock copy. [Amir] We do not call ->remap_file_range() in case the files are not on the same sb and do not call ->copy_file_range() in case the files do not belong to the same filesystem driver. This changes behavior of the copy_file_range(2) syscall, which will now allow cross filesystem in-kernel copy. CIFS already supports cross-superblock copy, between two shares to the same server.

2019-05-06vfs: pass ppos=NULL to .read()/.write() of FMODE_STREAM filesKirill Smelkov1-46/+67
This amends commit 10dce8af3422 ("fs: stream_open - opener for stream-like files so that read and write can run simultaneously without deadlock") in how position is passed into .read()/.write() handler for stream-like files: Rasmus noticed that we currently pass 0 as position and ignore any position change if that is done by a file implementation. This papers over bugs if ppos is used in files that declare themselves as being stream-like as such bugs will go unnoticed. Even if a file implementation is correctly converted into using stream_open, its read/write later could be changed to use ppos and even though that won't be working correctly, that bug might go unnoticed without someone doing wrong behaviour analysis. It is thus better to pass ppos=NULL into read/write for stream-like files as that don't give any chance for ppos usage bugs because it will oops if ppos is ever used inside .read() or .write(). Note 1: rw_verify_area, new_sync_{read,write} needs to be updated because they are called by vfs_read/vfs_write & friends before file_operations .read/.write . Note 2: if file backend uses new-style .read_iter/.write_iter, position is still passed into there as non-pointer kiocb.ki_pos . Currently stream_open.cocci (semantic patch added by 10dce8af3422) ignores files whose file_operations has *_iter methods.

2019-04-06fs: stream_open - opener for stream-like files so that read and write can run simultaneously without deadlockKirill Smelkov1-2/+3
Commit 9c225f2655e3 ("vfs: atomic f_pos accesses as per POSIX") added locking for file.f_pos access and in particular made concurrent read and write not possible - now both those functions take f_pos lock for the whole run, and so if e.g. a read is blocked waiting for data, write will deadlock waiting for that read to complete. This caused regression for stream-like files where previously read and write could run simultaneously, but after that patch could not do so anymore. See e.g. commit 581d21a2d02a ("xenbus: fix deadlock on writes to /proc/xen/xenbus") which fixes such regression for particular case of /proc/xen/xenbus. The patch that added f_pos lock in 2014 did so to guarantee POSIX thread safety for read/write/lseek and added the locking to file descriptors of all regular files. In 2014 that thread-safety problem was not new as it was already discussed earlier in 2006. However even though 2006'th version of Linus's patch was adding f_pos locking "only for files that are marked seekable with FMODE_LSEEK (thus avoiding the stream-like objects like pipes and sockets)", the 2014 version - the one that actually made it into the tree as 9c225f2655e3 - is doing so irregardless of whether a file is seekable or not. See https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/53022DB1.4070805@gmail.com/ https://lwn.net/Articles/180387 https://lwn.net/Articles/180396 for historic context. The reason that it did so is, probably, that there are many files that are marked non-seekable, but e.g. their read implementation actually depends on knowing current position to correctly handle the read. Some examples: kernel/power/user.c snapshot_read fs/debugfs/file.c u32_array_read fs/fuse/control.c fuse_conn_waiting_read + ... drivers/hwmon/asus_atk0110.c atk_debugfs_ggrp_read arch/s390/hypfs/inode.c hypfs_read_iter ... Despite that, many nonseekable_open users implement read and write with pure stream semantics - they don't depend on passed ppos at all. And for those cases where read could wait for something inside, it creates a situation similar to xenbus - the write could be never made to go until read is done, and read is waiting for some, potentially external, event, for potentially unbounded time -> deadlock. Besides xenbus, there are 14 such places in the kernel that I've found with semantic patch (see below): drivers/xen/evtchn.c:667:8-24: ERROR: evtchn_fops: .read() can deadlock .write() drivers/isdn/capi/capi.c:963:8-24: ERROR: capi_fops: .read() can deadlock .write() drivers/input/evdev.c:527:1-17: ERROR: evdev_fops: .read() can deadlock .write() drivers/char/pcmcia/cm4000_cs.c:1685:7-23: ERROR: cm4000_fops: .read() can deadlock .write() net/rfkill/core.c:1146:8-24: ERROR: rfkill_fops: .read() can deadlock .write() drivers/s390/char/fs3270.c:488:1-17: ERROR: fs3270_fops: .read() can deadlock .write() drivers/usb/misc/ldusb.c:310:1-17: ERROR: ld_usb_fops: .read() can deadlock .write() drivers/hid/uhid.c:635:1-17: ERROR: uhid_fops: .read() can deadlock .write() net/batman-adv/icmp_socket.c:80:1-17: ERROR: batadv_fops: .read() can deadlock .write() drivers/media/rc/lirc_dev.c:198:1-17: ERROR: lirc_fops: .read() can deadlock .write() drivers/leds/uleds.c:77:1-17: ERROR: uleds_fops: .read() can deadlock .write() drivers/input/misc/uinput.c:400:1-17: ERROR: uinput_fops: .read() can deadlock .write() drivers/infiniband/core/user_mad.c:985:7-23: ERROR: umad_fops: .read() can deadlock .write() drivers/gnss/core.c:45:1-17: ERROR: gnss_fops: .read() can deadlock .write() In addition to the cases above another regression caused by f_pos locking is that now FUSE filesystems that implement open with FOPEN_NONSEEKABLE flag, can no longer implement bidirectional stream-like files - for the same reason as above e.g. read can deadlock write locking on file.f_pos in the kernel. FUSE's FOPEN_NONSEEKABLE was added in 2008 in a7c1b990f715 ("fuse: implement nonseekable open") to support OSSPD. OSSPD implements /dev/dsp in userspace with FOPEN_NONSEEKABLE flag, with corresponding read and write routines not depending on current position at all, and with both read and write being potentially blocking operations: See https://github.com/libfuse/osspd https://lwn.net/Articles/308445 https://github.com/libfuse/osspd/blob/14a9cff0/osspd.c#L1406 https://github.com/libfuse/osspd/blob/14a9cff0/osspd.c#L1438-L1477 https://github.com/libfuse/osspd/blob/14a9cff0/osspd.c#L1479-L1510 Corresponding libfuse example/test also describes FOPEN_NONSEEKABLE as "somewhat pipe-like files ..." with read handler not using offset. However that test implements only read without write and cannot exercise the deadlock scenario: https://github.com/libfuse/libfuse/blob/fuse-3.4.2-3-ga1bff7d/example/poll.c#L124-L131 https://github.com/libfuse/libfuse/blob/fuse-3.4.2-3-ga1bff7d/example/poll.c#L146-L163 https://github.com/libfuse/libfuse/blob/fuse-3.4.2-3-ga1bff7d/example/poll.c#L209-L216 I've actually hit the read vs write deadlock for real while implementing my FUSE filesystem where there is /head/watch file, for which open creates separate bidirectional socket-like stream in between filesystem and its user with both read and write being later performed simultaneously. And there it is semantically not easy to split the stream into two separate read-only and write-only channels: https://lab.nexedi.com/kirr/wendelin.core/blob/f13aa600/wcfs/wcfs.go#L88-169 Let's fix this regression. The plan is: 1. We can't change nonseekable_open to include &~FMODE_ATOMIC_POS - doing so would break many in-kernel nonseekable_open users which actually use ppos in read/write handlers. 2. Add stream_open() to kernel to open stream-like non-seekable file descriptors. Read and write on such file descriptors would never use nor change ppos. And with that property on stream-like files read and write will be running without taking f_pos lock - i.e. read and write could be running simultaneously. 3. With semantic patch search and convert to stream_open all in-kernel nonseekable_open users for which read and write actually do not depend on ppos and where there is no other methods in file_operations which assume @offset access. 4. Add FOPEN_STREAM to fs/fuse/ and open in-kernel file-descriptors via steam_open if that bit is present in filesystem open reply. It was tempting to change fs/fuse/ open handler to use stream_open instead of nonseekable_open on just FOPEN_NONSEEKABLE flags, but grepping through Debian codesearch shows users of FOPEN_NONSEEKABLE, and in particular GVFS which actually uses offset in its read and write handlers https://codesearch.debian.net/search?q=-%3Enonseekable+%3D https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gvfs/blob/1.40.0-6-gcbc54396/client/gvfsfusedaemon.c#L1080 https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gvfs/blob/1.40.0-6-gcbc54396/client/gvfsfusedaemon.c#L1247-1346 https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gvfs/blob/1.40.0-6-gcbc54396/client/gvfsfusedaemon.c#L1399-1481 so if we would do such a change it will break a real user. 5. Add stream_open and FOPEN_STREAM handling to stable kernels starting from v3.14+ (the kernel where 9c225f2655 first appeared). This will allow to patch OSSPD and other FUSE filesystems that provide stream-like files to return FOPEN_STREAM | FOPEN_NONSEEKABLE in their open handler and this way avoid the deadlock on all kernel versions. This should work because fs/fuse/ ignores unknown open flags returned from a filesystem and so passing FOPEN_STREAM to a kernel that is not aware of this flag cannot hurt. In turn the kernel that is not aware of FOPEN_STREAM will be < v3.14 where just FOPEN_NONSEEKABLE is sufficient to implement streams without read vs write deadlock. This patch adds stream_open, converts /proc/xen/xenbus to it and adds semantic patch to automatically locate in-kernel places that are either required to be converted due to read vs write deadlock, or that are just safe to be converted because read and write do not use ppos and there are no other funky methods in file_operations. Regarding semantic patch I've verified each generated change manually - that it is correct to convert - and each other nonseekable_open instance left - that it is either not correct to convert there, or that it is not converted due to current stream_open.cocci limitations. The script also does not convert files that should be valid to convert, but that currently have .llseek = noop_llseek or generic_file_llseek for unknown reason despite file being opened with nonseekable_open (e.g. drivers/input/mousedev.c) Cc: Michael Kerrisk <mtk.manpages@gmail.com> Cc: Yongzhi Pan <panyongzhi@gmail.com> Cc: Jonathan Corbet <corbet@lwn.net> Cc: David Vrabel <david.vrabel@citrix.com> Cc: Juergen Gross <jgross@suse.com> Cc: Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu> Cc: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org> Cc: Kirill Tkhai <ktkhai@virtuozzo.com> Cc: Arnd Bergmann <arnd@arndb.de> Cc: Christoph Hellwig <hch@lst.de> Cc: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@linuxfoundation.org> Cc: Julia Lawall <Julia.Lawall@lip6.fr> Cc: Nikolaus Rath <Nikolaus@rath.org> Cc: Han-Wen Nienhuys <hanwen@google.com> Signed-off-by: Kirill Smelkov <kirr@nexedi.com> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>

2019-03-04get rid of legacy 'get_ds()' functionLinus Torvalds1-3/+3
Every in-kernel use of this function defined it to KERNEL_DS (either as an actual define, or as an inline function). It's an entirely historical artifact, and long long long ago used to actually read the segment selector valueof '%ds' on x86. Which in the kernel is always KERNEL_DS. Inspired by a patch from Jann Horn that just did this for a very small subset of users (the ones in fs/), along with Al who suggested a script. I then just took it to the logical extreme and removed all the remaining gunk. Roughly scripted with git grep -l '(get_ds())' -- :^tools/ | xargs sed -i 's/(get_ds())/(KERNEL_DS)/' git grep -lw 'get_ds' -- :^tools/ | xargs sed -i '/^#define get_ds()/d' plus manual fixups to remove a few unusual usage patterns, the couple of inline function cases and to fix up a comment that had become stale. The 'get_ds()' function remains in an x86 kvm selftest, since in user space it actually does something relevant.

2019-02-16vfs: fix preadv64v2 and pwritev64v2 compat syscalls with offset == -1Aurelien Jarno1-0/+6
The preadv2 and pwritev2 syscalls are supposed to emulate the readv and writev syscalls when offset == -1. Therefore the compat code should check for offset before calling do_compat_preadv64 and do_compat_pwritev64. This is the case for the preadv2 and pwritev2 syscalls, but handling of offset == -1 is missing in their 64-bit equivalent. This patch fixes that, calling do_compat_readv and do_compat_writev when offset == -1. This fixes the following glibc tests on x32: - misc/tst-preadvwritev2 - misc/tst-preadvwritev64v2 Cc: Alexander Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk> Cc: H.J.

2019-01-03Remove 'type' argument from access_ok() functionLinus Torvalds1-8/+5
Nobody has actually used the type (VERIFY_READ vs VERIFY_WRITE) argument of the user address range verification function since we got rid of the old racy i386-only code to walk page tables by hand. It existed because the original 80386 would not honor the write protect bit when in kernel mode, so you had to do COW by hand before doing any user access. But we haven't supported that in a long time, and these days the 'type' argument is a purely historical artifact. A discussion about extending 'user_access_begin()' to do the range checking resulted this patch, because there is no way we're going to move the old VERIFY_xyz interface to that model. And it's best done at the end of the merge window when I've done most of my merges, so let's just get this done once and for all. This patch was mostly done with a sed-script, with manual fix-ups for the cases that weren't of the trivial 'access_ok(VERIFY_xyz' form. There were a couple of notable cases: - csky still had the old "verify_area()" name as an alias. - the iter_iov code had magical hardcoded knowledge of the actual values of VERIFY_{READ,WRITE} (not that they mattered, since nothing really used it) - microblaze used the type argument for a debug printout but other than those oddities this should be a total no-op patch. I tried to fix up all architectures, did fairly extensive grepping for access_ok() uses, and the changes are trivial, but I may have missed something. Any missed conversion should be trivially fixable, though. Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
2018-12-04vfs: allow some remap flags to be passed to vfs_clone_file_rangeDarrick J. Wong1-1/+1
In overlayfs, ovl_remap_file_range calls vfs_clone_file_range on the lower filesystem's inode, passing through whatever remap flags it got from its caller. Since vfs_copy_file_range first tries a filesystem's remap function with REMAP_FILE_CAN_SHORTEN, this can get passed through to the second vfs_copy_file_range call, and this isn't an issue.

Pull vfs dedup fixes from Dave Chinner: "This reworks the vfs data cloning infrastructure. We discovered many issues with these interfaces late in the 4.19 cycle - the worst of them (data corruption, setuid stripping) were fixed for XFS in 4.19-rc8, but a larger rework of the infrastructure fixing all the problems was needed. That rework is the contents of this pull request. Rework the vfs_clone_file_range and vfs_dedupe_file_range infrastructure to use a common .remap_file_range method and supply generic bounds and sanity checking functions that are shared with the data write path. The current VFS infrastructure has problems with rlimit, LFS file sizes, file time stamps, maximum filesystem file sizes, stripping setuid bits, etc and so they are addressed in these commits. We also introduce the ability for the ->remap_file_range methods to return short clones so that clones for vfs_copy_file_range() don't get rejected if the entire range can't be cloned. It also allows filesystems to sliently skip deduplication of partial EOF blocks if they are not capable of doing so without requiring errors to be thrown to userspace.
