2007-10-19IPC: fix error case when idr-cache is empty in ipcget()Pierre Peiffer1-2/+3
With the use of idr to store the ipc, the case where the idr cache is empty, when idr_get_new is called (this may happen even if we call idr_pre_get() before), is not well handled: it lets semget()/shmget()/msgget() return ENOSPC when this cache is empty, what 1. does not reflect the facts and 2. does not conform to the man(s). This patch fixes this by retrying the whole process of allocation in this case.

2007-10-19fix idr_find() lockingNadia Derbey1-26/+51
This is a patch that fixes the way idr_find() used to be called in ipc_lock(): in all the paths that don't imply an update of the ipcs idr, it was called without the idr tree being locked. The changes are: . in ipc_ids, the mutex has been changed into a reader/writer semaphore. . ipc_lock() now takes the mutex as a reader during the idr_find(). . a new routine ipc_lock_down() has been defined: it doesn't take the mutex, assuming that it is being held by the caller. This is the routine that is now called in all the update paths.

2007-10-19pid namespaces: changes to show virtual ids to userPavel Emelyanov1-3/+3
This is the largest patch in the set. Make all (I hope) the places where the pid is shown to or get from user operate on the virtual pids. The idea is: - all in-kernel data structures must store either struct pid itself or the pid's global nr, obtained with pid_nr() call; - when seeking the task from kernel code with the stored id one should use find_task_by_pid() call that works with global pids; - when showing pid's numerical value to the user the virtual one should be used, but however when one shows task's pid outside this task's namespace the global one is to be used; - when getting the pid from userspace one need to consider this as the virtual one and use appropriate task/pid-searching functions.

2007-10-17r/o bind mounts: filesystem helpers for custom 'struct file'sDave Hansen1-8/+5
Why do we need r/o bind mounts? This feature allows a read-only view into a read-write filesystem. In the process of doing that, it also provides infrastructure for keeping track of the number of writers to any given mount. This has a number of uses. It allows chroots to have parts of filesystems writable. It will be useful for containers in the future because users may have root inside a container, but should not be allowed to write to somefilesystems. This also replaces patches that vserver has had out of the tree for several years. It allows security enhancement by making sure that parts of your filesystem read-only (such as when you don't trust your FTP server), when you don't want to have entire new filesystems mounted, or when you want atime selectively updated. I've been using the following script to test that the feature is working as desired. It takes a directory and makes a regular bind and a r/o bind mount of it. It then performs some normal filesystem operations on the three directories, including ones that are expected to fail, like creating a file on the r/o mount. This patch: Some filesystems forego the vfs and may_open() and create their own 'struct file's. This patch creates a couple of helper functions which can be used by these filesystems, and will provide a unified place which the r/o bind mount code may patch. Also, rename an existing, static-scope init_file() to a less generic name.

2007-07-31Fix user struct leakage with locked IPC shem segmentPavel Emelianov1-1/+1
When user locks an ipc shmem segmant with SHM_LOCK ctl and the segment is already locked the shmem_lock() function returns 0. After this the subsequent code leaks the existing user struct: == ipc/shm.c: sys_shmctl() == ... err = shmem_lock(shp->shm_file, 1, user); if (!err) { shp->shm_perm.mode |= SHM_LOCKED; shp->mlock_user = user; } ... == Other results of this are: 1. the new shp->mlock_user is not get-ed and will point to freed memory when the task dies. 2. the RLIMIT_MEMLOCK is screwed on both user structs. The exploit looks like this: == id = shmget(...); setresuid(uid, 0, 0); shmctl(id, SHM_LOCK, NULL); setresuid(uid + 1, 0, 0); shmctl(id, SHM_LOCK, NULL); == My solution is to return 0 to the userspace and do not change the segment's user.

2007-07-19mm: fault feedback #1Nick Piggin1-3/+2
Change ->fault prototype. We now return an int, which contains VM_FAULT_xxx code in the low byte, and FAULT_RET_xxx code in the next byte. FAULT_RET_ code tells the VM whether a page was found, whether it has been locked, and potentially other things. This is not quite the way he wanted it yet, but that's changed in the next patch (which requires changes to arch code). This means we no longer set VM_CAN_INVALIDATE in the vma in order to say that a page is locked which requires filemap_nopage to go away (because we can no longer remain backward compatible without that flag), but we were going to do that anyway. struct fault_data is renamed to struct vm_fault as Linus asked. address is now a void __user * that we should firmly encourage drivers not to use without really good reason. The page is now returned via a page pointer in the vm_fault struct.

2007-07-19mm: merge populate and nopage into fault (fixes nonlinear)Nick Piggin1-4/+5
Nonlinear mappings are (AFAIKS) simply a virtual memory concept that encodes the virtual address -> file offset differently from linear mappings. ->populate is a layering violation because the filesystem/pagecache code should need to know anything about the virtual memory mapping. The hitch here is that the ->nopage handler didn't pass down enough information (ie. pgoff). But it is more logical to pass pgoff rather than have the ->nopage function calculate it itself anyway (because that's a similar layering violation). Having the populate handler install the pte itself is likewise a nasty thing to be doing. This patch introduces a new fault handler that replaces ->nopage and ->populate and (later) ->nopfn. Most of the old mechanism is still in place so there is a lot of duplication and nice cleanups that can be removed if everyone switches over. The rationale for doing this in the first place is that nonlinear mappings are subject to the pagefault vs invalidate/truncate race too, and it seemed stupid to duplicate the synchronisation logic rather than just consolidate the two. After this patch, MAP_NONBLOCK no longer sets up ptes for pages present in pagecache. Seems like a fringe functionality anyway. NOPAGE_REFAULT is removed. This should be implemented with ->fault, and no users have hit mainline yet.

2007-06-16shm: fix the filename of hugetlb sysv shared memoryEric W. Biederman1-3/+3
Some user space tools need to identify SYSV shared memory when examining /proc/<pid>/maps. To do so they look for a block device with major zero, a dentry named SYSV<sysv key>, and having the minor of the internal sysv shared memory kernel mount. To help these tools and to make it easier for people just browsing /proc/<pid>/maps this patch modifies hugetlb sysv shared memory to use the SYSV<key> dentry naming convention. User space tools will still have to be aware that hugetlb sysv shared memory lives on a different internal kernel mount and so has a different block device minor number from the rest of sysv shared memory.

2007-06-16hugetlb: fix get_policy for stacked shared memory filesAdam Litke1-1/+3
Here's another breakage as a result of shared memory stacked files :( The NUMA policy for a VMA is determined by checking the following (in the order given): 1) vma->vm_ops->get_policy() (if defined) 2) vma->vm_policy (if defined) 3) task->mempolicy (if defined) 4) Fall back to default_policy By switching to stacked files for shared memory, get_policy() is now always set to shm_get_policy which is a wrapper function. This causes us to stop at step 1, which yields NULL for hugetlb instead of task->mempolicy which was the previous (and correct) result. This patch modifies the shm_get_policy() wrapper to maintain steps 1-3 for the wrapped vm_ops.

2007-03-01[PATCH] Fix get_unmapped_area and fsync for hugetlb shm segmentsAdam Litke1-6/+26
This patch provides the following hugetlb-related fixes to the recent stacked shm files changes: - Update is_file_hugepages() so it will reconize hugetlb shm segments. - get_unmapped_area must be called with the nested file struct to handle the sfd->file->f_ops->get_unmapped_area == NULL case. - The fsync f_op must be wrapped since it is specified in the hugetlbfs f_ops. This is based on proposed fixes from Eric Biederman that were debugged and tested by me. Without it, attempting to use hugetlb shared memory segments on powerpc (and likely ia64) will kill your box.

2007-02-20[PATCH] shm: make sysv ipc shared memory use stacked filesEric W. Biederman1-85/+155
The current ipc shared memory code runs into several problems because it does not quite use files like the rest of the kernel. With the option of backing ipc shared memory with either hugetlbfs or ordinary shared memory the problems got worse. With the added support for ipc namespaces things behaved so unexpected that we now have several bad namespace reference counting bugs when using what appears at first glance to be a reasonable idiom. So to attack these problems and hopefully make the code more maintainable this patch simply uses the files provided by other parts of the kernel and builds it's own files out of them. The shm files are allocated in do_shmat and freed when their reference count drops to zero with their last unmap. The file and vm operations that we don't want to implement or we don't implement completely we just delegate to the operations of our backing file. This means that we now get an accurate shm_nattch count for we have a hugetlbfs inode for backing store, and the shm accounting of last attach and last detach time work as well. This means that getting a reference to the ipc namespace when we create the file and dropping the referenece in the release method is now safe and correct. This means we no longer need a special case for clearing VM_MAYWRITE as our file descriptor now only has write permissions when we have requested write access when calling shmat. Although VM_SHARED is now cleared as well which I believe is harmless and is mostly likely a minor bug fix. By using the same set of operations for both the hugetlb case and regular shared memory case shmdt is not simplified and made slightly more correct as now the test "vma->vm_ops == &shm_vm_ops" is 100% accurate in spotting all shared memory regions generated from sysvipc shared memory.

2006-06-20[PATCH] update of IPC audit record cleanupLinda Knippers1-1/+1
The following patch addresses most of the issues with the IPC_SET_PERM records as described in: https://www.redhat.com/archives/linux-audit/2006-May/msg00010.html and addresses the comments I received on the record field names. To summarize, I made the following changes: 1. Changed sys_msgctl() and semctl_down() so that an IPC_SET_PERM record is emitted in the failure case as well as the success case. This matches the behavior in sys_shmctl(). I could simplify the code in sys_msgctl() and semctl_down() slightly but it would mean that in some error cases we could get an IPC_SET_PERM record without an IPC record and that seemed odd. 2. No change to the IPC record type, given no feedback on the backward compatibility question. 3. Removed the qbytes field from the IPC record. It wasn't being set and when audit_ipc_obj() is called from ipcperms(), the information isn't available. If we want the information in the IPC record, more extensive changes will be necessary. Since it only applies to message queues and it isn't really permission related, it doesn't seem worth it. 4. Removed the obj field from the IPC_SET_PERM record. This means that the kern_ipc_perm argument is no longer needed. 5. Removed the spaces and renamed the IPC_SET_PERM field names. Replaced iuid and igid fields with ouid and ogid in the IPC record. I tested this with the lspp.22 kernel on an x86_64 box. I believe it applies cleanly on the latest kernel. -- ljk Signed-off-by: Linda Knippers <linda.knippers@hp.com> Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>
2006-05-01[PATCH] Rework of IPC auditingSteve Grubb1-3/+16
1) The audit_ipc_perms() function has been split into two different functions: - audit_ipc_obj() - audit_ipc_set_perm() There's a key shift here... The audit_ipc_obj() collects the uid, gid, mode, and SElinux context label of the current ipc object. This audit_ipc_obj() hook is now found in several places. Most notably, it is hooked in ipcperms(), which is called in various places around the ipc code permforming a MAC check. Additionally there are several places where *checkid() is used to validate that an operation is being performed on a valid object while not necessarily having a nearby ipcperms() call. In these locations, audit_ipc_obj() is called to ensure that the information is captured by the audit system. The audit_set_new_perm() function is called any time the permissions on the ipc object changes. In this case, the NEW permissions are recorded (and note that an audit_ipc_obj() call exists just a few lines before each instance). 2) Support for an AUDIT_IPC_SET_PERM audit message type. This allows for separate auxiliary audit records for normal operations on an IPC object and permissions changes. Note that the same struct audit_aux_data_ipcctl is used and populated, however there are separate audit_log_format statements based on the type of the message. Finally, the AUDIT_IPC block of code in audit_free_aux() was extended to handle aux messages of this new type. No more mem leaks I hope ;-) Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>
2006-04-17[PATCH] shmat: stop mprotect from giving write permission to a readonly attachment (CVE-2006-1524)Hugh Dickins1-0/+2
I found that all of 2.4 and 2.6 have been letting mprotect give write permission to a readonly attachment of shared memory, whether or not IPC would give the caller that permission. SUS says "The behaviour of this function [mprotect] is unspecified if the mapping was not established by a call to mmap", but I don't think we can interpret that as allowing it to subvert IPC permissions. I haven't tried 2.2, but the 2.2.26 source looks like it gets it right; and the patch below reproduces that behaviour - mprotect cannot be used to add write permission to a shared memory segment attached readonly. This patch is simple, and I'm sure it's what we should have done in 2.4.0: if you want to go on to switch write permission on and off with mprotect, just don't attach the segment readonly in the first place. However, we could have accumulated apps which attach readonly (even though they would be permitted to attach read/write), and which subsequently use mprotect to switch write permission on and off: it's not unreasonable. I was going to add a second ipcperms check in do_shmat, to check for writable when readonly, and if not writable find_vma and clear VM_MAYWRITE. But security_ipc_permission might do auditing, and it seems wrong to report an attempt for write permission when there has been none. Or we could flag the vma as SHM, note the shmid or shp in vm_private_data, and then get mprotect to check. But the patch below is a lot simpler: I'd rather stick with it, if we can convince ourselves somehow that it'll be safe.

2006-03-24[PATCH] shmdt: check address alignmentHugh Dickins1-0/+3
SUSv3 says the shmdt() function shall fail with EINVAL if the value of shmaddr is not the data segment start address of a shared memory segment: our sys_shmdt needs to reject a shmaddr which is not page-aligned. Does it have the potential to break existing apps? Hugh says "sys_shmdt() just does the wrong (unexpected) thing with a misaligned address: it'll fail on what you might expect it to succeed on, and only succeed on what it should definitely fail on. "That is, I think it behaves as if shmaddr gets rounded up, when the only understandable behaviour would be if it rounded it down. "Which does mean you'd have to be devious to see anything but EINVAL from a misaligned shmaddr there, so it's not terribly important."

2006-03-20[PATCH] Capture selinux subject/object context information.Dustin Kirkland1-2/+2
This patch extends existing audit records with subject/object context information. Audit records associated with filesystem inodes, ipc, and tasks now contain SELinux label information in the field "subj" if the item is performing the action, or in "obj" if the item is the receiver of an action. These labels are collected via hooks in SELinux and appended to the appropriate record in the audit code. This additional information is required for Common Criteria Labeled Security Protection Profile (LSPP).

2006-02-10[PATCH] shmdt cannot detach not-alined shm segment cleanly.KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki1-0/+1
sys_shmdt() can manage shm segments which are covered by multiple vmas. (This can happen when a user uses mprotect() after shmat().) This works well if shm is aligned to PAGE_SIZE, but if not, the last segment cannot be detached. It is because a comparison in sys_shmdt() (vma->vm_end - addr) < size addr == return address of shmat() size == shmsize, argments to shmget() size should be aligned to PAGE_SIZE before being compared with vma->vm_end, which is aligned.

2006-01-06[PATCH] NOMMU: Make SYSV IPC SHM use ramfs facilities on NOMMUDavid Howells1-5/+13
The attached patch makes the SYSV IPC shared memory facilities use the new ramfs facilities on a no-MMU kernel. The following changes are made: (1) There are now shmem_mmap() and shmem_get_unmapped_area() functions to allow the IPC SHM facilities to commune with the tiny-shmem and shmem code. (2) ramfs files now need resizing using do_truncate() rather than by modifying the inode size directly (see shmem_file_setup()). This causes ramfs to attempt to bind a block of pages of sufficient size to the inode. (3) CONFIG_SYSVIPC is no longer contingent on CONFIG_MMU.
