2006-12-07[PATCH] Fix the size limit of compat space msgsizesuzuki2-27/+40
Currently we allocate 64k space on the user stack and use it the msgbuf for sys_{msgrcv,msgsnd} for compat and the results are later copied in user [ by copy_in_user]. This patch introduces helper routines for sys_{msgrcv,msgsnd} as below: do_msgsnd() : Accepts the mtype and user space ptr to the buffer along with the msqid and msgflg. do_msgrcv() : Accepts a kernel space ptr to mtype and a userspace ptr to the buffer. The mtype has to be copied back the user space msgbuf by the caller. These changes avoid the need to allocate the msgsize on the userspace ( thus removing the size limt ) and the overhead of an extra copy_in_user().

2006-11-22WorkStruct: Pass the work_struct pointer instead of context dataDavid Howells1-1/+6
Pass the work_struct pointer to the work function rather than context data. The work function can use container_of() to work out the data. For the cases where the container of the work_struct may go away the moment the pending bit is cleared, it is made possible to defer the release of the structure by deferring the clearing of the pending bit. To make this work, an extra flag is introduced into the management side of the work_struct. This governs auto-release of the structure upon execution. Ordinarily, the work queue executor would release the work_struct for further scheduling or deallocation by clearing the pending bit prior to jumping to the work function. This means that, unless the driver makes some guarantee itself that the work_struct won't go away, the work function may not access anything else in the work_struct or its container lest they be deallocated.. This is a problem if the auxiliary data is taken away (as done by the last patch). However, if the pending bit is *not* cleared before jumping to the work function, then the work function *may* access the work_struct and its container with no problems. But then the work function must itself release the work_struct by calling work_release(). In most cases, automatic release is fine, so this is the default. Special initiators exist for the non-auto-release case (ending in _NAR). Signed-Off-By: David Howells <dhowells@redhat.com>
2006-11-04Revert unintentional "volatile" changes in ipc/msg.cLinus Torvalds1-1/+1
Commit 5a06a363ef48444186f18095ae1b932dddbbfa89 ("[PATCH] ipc/msg.c: clean up coding style") breaks fakeroot on Alpha (variously hangs or oopses), according to a report by Falk Hueffner. The fact that the code seems to rely on compiler access ordering through the use of "volatile" is a pretty certain sign that the code has locking problems, and we should fix those properly and then remove the whole "volatile" entirely. But in the meantime, the movement of "volatile" was unintentional, and should be reverted.

2006-11-03[PATCH] Fix ipc entries removalPavel Emelianov5-1/+16
Fix two issuses related to ipc_ids->entries freeing. 1. When freeing ipc namespace we need to free entries allocated with ipc_init_ids(). 2. When removing old entries in grow_ary() ipc_rcu_putref() may be called on entries set to &ids->nullentry earlier in ipc_init_ids(). This is almost impossible without namespaces, but with them this situation becomes possible. Found during OpenVZ testing after obvious leaks in beancounters.

Pass the POSIX lock owner ID to the flush operation. This is useful for filesystems which don't want to store any locking state in inode->i_flock but want to handle locking/unlocking POSIX locks internally. FUSE is one such filesystem but I think it possible that some network filesystems would need this also. Also add a flag to indicate that a POSIX locking request was generated by close(), so filesystems using the above feature won't send an extra locking request in this case.

2006-06-23[PATCH] VFS: Permit filesystem to override root dentry on mountDavid Howells1-4/+4
Extend the get_sb() filesystem operation to take an extra argument that permits the VFS to pass in the target vfsmount that defines the mountpoint. The filesystem is then required to manually set the superblock and root dentry pointers. For most filesystems, this should be done with simple_set_mnt() which will set the superblock pointer and then set the root dentry to the superblock's s_root (as per the old default behaviour). The get_sb() op now returns an integer as there's now no need to return the superblock pointer. This patch permits a superblock to be implicitly shared amongst several mount points, such as can be done with NFS to avoid potential inode aliasing. In such a case, simple_set_mnt() would not be called, and instead the mnt_root and mnt_sb would be set directly. The patch also makes the following changes: (*) the get_sb_*() convenience functions in the core kernel now take a vfsmount pointer argument and return an integer, so most filesystems have to change very little. (*) If one of the convenience function is not used, then get_sb() should normally call simple_set_mnt() to instantiate the vfsmount. This will always return 0, and so can be tail-called from get_sb(). (*) generic_shutdown_super() now calls shrink_dcache_sb() to clean up the dcache upon superblock destruction rather than shrink_dcache_anon(). This is required because the superblock may now have multiple trees that aren't actually bound to s_root, but that still need to be cleaned up. The currently called functions assume that the whole tree is rooted at s_root, and that anonymous dentries are not the roots of trees which results in dentries being left unculled. However, with the way NFS superblock sharing are currently set to be implemented, these assumptions are violated: the root of the filesystem is simply a dummy dentry and inode (the real inode for '/' may well be inaccessible), and all the vfsmounts are rooted on anonymous[*] dentries with child trees. [*] Anonymous until discovered from another tree. (*) The documentation has been adjusted, including the additional bit of changing ext2_* into foo_* in the documentation.

2006-06-20[PATCH] Audit of POSIX Message Queue Syscalls v.2George C. Wilson1-0/+22
This patch adds audit support to POSIX message queues. It applies cleanly to the lspp.b15 branch of Al Viro's git tree. There are new auxiliary data structures, and collection and emission routines in kernel/auditsc.c. New hooks in ipc/mqueue.c collect arguments from the syscalls. I tested the patch by building the examples from the POSIX MQ library tarball. Build them -lrt, not against the old MQ library in the tarball. Here's the URL: http://www.geocities.com/wronski12/posix_ipc/libmqueue-4.41.tar.gz Do auditctl -a exit,always -S for mq_open, mq_timedsend, mq_timedreceive, mq_notify, mq_getsetattr. mq_unlink has no new hooks.

2006-06-20[PATCH] update of IPC audit record cleanupLinda Knippers3-8/+11
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 Grubb4-6/+42
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.

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 Kirkland3-7/+7
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.

2006-02-09[NETLINK]: Fix a severe bugAlexey Kuznetsov1-1/+2
netlink overrun was broken while improvement of netlink. Destination socket is used in the place where it was meant to be source socket, so that now overrun is never sent to user netlink sockets, when it should be, and it even can be set on kernel socket, which results in complete deadlock of rtnetlink. Suggested fix is to restore status quo passing source socket as additional argument to netlink_attachskb(). A little explanation: overrun is set on a socket, when it failed to receive some message and sender of this messages does not or even have no way to handle this error. This happens in two cases: 1. when kernel sends something. Kernel never retransmits and cannot wait for buffer space. 2. when user sends a broadcast and the message was not delivered to some recipients.

2006-01-14[PATCH] Fix double decrement of mqueue_mnt->mnt_count in sys_mq_openAlexander Viro1-26/+33
Fixed the refcounting on failure exits in sys_mq_open() and cleaned the logics up. Rules are actually pretty simple - dentry_open() expects vfsmount and dentry to be pinned down and it either transfers them into created struct file or drops them. Old code had been very confused in that area - if dentry_open() had failed either in do_open() or do_create(), we ended up dentry and mqueue_mnt dropped twice, once by dentry_open() cleanup and then by sys_mq_open(). Fix consists of making the rules for do_create() and do_open() same as for dentry_open() and updating the sys_mq_open() accordingly; that actually leads to more straightforward code and less work on normal path.
