2006-06-22[PATCH] avoid tasklist_lock at getrusage for multithreaded case tooRavikiran G Thirumalai1-34/+22
Avoid taking tasklist_lock for at getrusage for the multithreaded case too. We don't need to take the tasklist lock for thread traversal of a process since Oleg's do-__unhash_process-under-siglock.patch and related work.

2006-06-22[PATCH] selinux: add hooks for key subsystemMichael LeMay1-1/+1
Introduce SELinux hooks to support the access key retention subsystem within the kernel. Incorporate new flask headers from a modified version of the SELinux reference policy, with support for the new security class representing retained keys. Extend the "key_alloc" security hook with a task parameter representing the intended ownership context for the key being allocated. Attach security information to root's default keyrings within the SELinux initialization routine. Has passed David's testsuite.

2006-06-20[PATCH] audit: path-based rulesAmy Griffis4-88/+900
In this implementation, audit registers inotify watches on the parent directories of paths specified in audit rules. When audit's inotify event handler is called, it updates any affected rules based on the filesystem event. If the parent directory is renamed, removed, or its filesystem is unmounted, audit removes all rules referencing that inotify watch. To keep things simple, this implementation limits location-based auditing to the directory entries in an existing directory. Given a path-based rule for /foo/bar/passwd, the following table applies: passwd modified -- audit event logged passwd replaced -- audit event logged, rules list updated bar renamed -- rule removed foo renamed -- untracked, meaning that the rule now applies to the new location Audit users typically want to have many rules referencing filesystem objects, which can significantly impact filtering performance. This patch also adds an inode-number-based rule hash to mitigate this situation. The patch is relative to the audit git tree: http://kernel.org/git/?p=linux/kernel/git/viro/audit-current.git;a=summary and uses the inotify kernel API: http://lkml.org/lkml/2006/6/1/145 Signed-off-by: Amy Griffis <amy.griffis@hp.com> Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>
2006-06-20[PATCH] Audit of POSIX Message Queue Syscalls v.2George C. Wilson1-1/+273
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 Knippers1-17/+5
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>
2006-06-20[PATCH] minor audit updatesSerge E. Hallyn1-9/+10
Just a few minor proposed updates. Only the last one will actually affect behavior. The rest are just misleading code. Several AUDIT_SET functions return 'old' value, but only return value <0 is checked for. So just return 0. propagate audit_set_rate_limit and audit_set_backlog_limit error values In audit_buffer_free, the audit_freelist_count was being incremented even when we discard the return buffer, so audit_freelist_count can end up wrong.

2006-06-20[PATCH] fix deadlocks in AUDIT_LIST/AUDIT_LIST_RULESAl Viro3-52/+81
We should not send a pile of replies while holding audit_netlink_mutex since we hold the same mutex when we receive commands. As the result, we can get blocked while sending and sit there holding the mutex while auditctl is unable to send the next command and get around to receiving what we'd sent. Solution: create skb and put them into a queue instead of sending; once we are done, send what we've got on the list. The former can be done synchronously while we are handling AUDIT_LIST or AUDIT_LIST_RULES; we are holding audit_netlink_mutex at that point. The latter is done asynchronously and without messing with audit_netlink_mutex. Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>

The following series of patches introduces a kernel API for inotify, making it possible for kernel modules to benefit from inotify's mechanism for watching inodes. With these patches, inotify will maintain for each caller a list of watches (via an embedded struct inotify_watch), where each inotify_watch is associated with a corresponding struct inode. The caller registers an event handler and specifies for which filesystem events their event handler should be called per inotify_watch.

2006-06-17[PATCH] arm_timer: remove a racy and obsolete PF_EXITING checkOleg Nesterov1-3/+0
arm_timer() checks PF_EXITING to prevent BUG_ON(->exit_state) in run_posix_cpu_timers(). However, for some reason it does so only for CPUCLOCK_PERTHREAD case (which is imho wrong). Also, this check is not reliable, PF_EXITING could be set on another cpu without any locks/barriers just after the check, so it can't prevent from attaching the timer to the exiting task.

do_exit() clears ->it_##clock##_expires, but nothing prevents another cpu to attach the timer to exiting process after that. arm_timer() tries to protect against this race, but the check is racy. After exit_notify() does 'write_unlock_irq(&tasklist_lock)' and before do_exit() calls 'schedule() local timer interrupt can find tsk->exit_state != 0. If that state was EXIT_DEAD (or another cpu does sys_wait4) interrupted task has ->signal == NULL. At this moment exiting task has no pending cpu timers, they were cleanuped in __exit_signal()->posix_cpu_timers_exit{,_group}(), so we can just return from irq.

2006-06-09[PATCH] Add a prctl to change the endianness of a process.Anton Blanchard1-0/+13
This new prctl is intended for changing the execution mode of the processor, on processors that support both a little-endian mode and a big-endian mode. It is intended for use by programs such as instruction set emulators (for example an x86 emulator on PowerPC), which may find it convenient to use the processor in an alternate endianness mode when executing translated instructions. Note that this does not imply the existence of a fully-fledged ABI for both endiannesses, or of compatibility code for converting system calls done in the non-native endianness mode. The program is expected to arrange for all of its system call arguments to be presented in the native endianness. Switching between big and little-endian mode will require some care in constructing the instruction sequence for the switch. Generally the instructions up to the instruction that invokes the prctl system call will have to be in the old endianness, and subsequent instructions will have to be in the new endianness.

2006-05-21[PATCH] Fix a NO_IDLE_HZ timer bugZachary Amsden1-0/+16
Under certain timing conditions, a race during boot occurs where timer ticks are being processed on remote CPUs. The remote timer ticks can increment jiffies, and if this happens during a window when a timeout is very close to expiring but a local tick has not yet been delivered, you can end up with 1) No softirq pending 2) A local timer wheel which is not synced to jiffies 3) No high resolution timer active 4) A local timer which is supposed to fire before the current jiffies value. In this circumstance, the comparison in next_timer_interrupt overflows, because the base of the comparison for high resolution timers is jiffies, but for the softirq timer wheel, it is relative the the current base of the wheel (jiffies_base).

This deadlocks the kernel of course. This patch changes symbol_put_addr() to not acquire the modlist_lock, it doesn't need it since it never looks at the module list directly. Also, it now uses core_kernel_text() instead of kernel_text_address().

2006-05-01[PATCH] Rework of IPC auditingSteve Grubb1-3/+51
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>

2006-05-01[PATCH] audit inode patchSteve Grubb1-37/+16
Previously, we were gathering the context instead of the sid. Now in this patch, we gather just the sid and convert to context only if an audit event is being output. This patch brings the performance hit from 146% down to 23% Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>
2006-05-01[PATCH] support for context based audit filtering, part 2Darrel Goeddel4-27/+256
This patch provides the ability to filter audit messages based on the elements of the process' SELinux context (user, role, type, mls sensitivity, and mls clearance). It uses the new interfaces from selinux to opaquely store information related to the selinux context and to filter based on that information. It also uses the callback mechanism provided by selinux to refresh the information when a new policy is loaded. Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>

2006-05-01[PATCH] drop task argument of audit_syscall_{entry,exit}Al Viro1-4/+4
... it's always current, and that's a good thing - allows simpler locking. Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>
2006-05-01[PATCH] drop gfp_mask in audit_log_exit()Al Viro1-30/+32
now we can do that - all callers are process-synchronous and do not hold any locks. Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>
2006-05-01[PATCH] move call of audit_free() into do_exit()Al Viro3-10/+4

2006-05-01[PATCH] deal with deadlocks in audit_free()Al Viro1-10/+10
Don't assume that audit_log_exit() et.al. are called for the context of current; pass task explictly. Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>
2006-04-28[PATCH] request_irq(): remove warnings from irq probingAndrew Morton1-2/+4
- Add new SA_PROBEIRQ which suppresses the new sharing-mismatch warning. Some drivers like to use request_irq() to find an unused interrupt slot. - Use it in i82365.c - Kill unused SA_PROBE. Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
2006-04-28[PATCH] off-by-1 in kernel/power/main.cdean gaudet1-1/+1
There's an off-by-1 in kernel/power/main.c:state_store() ... if your kernel just happens to have some non-zero data at pm_states[PM_SUSPEND_MAX] (i.e. one past the end of the array) then it'll let you write anything you want to /sys/power/state and in response the box will enter S5.

2006-04-26[PATCH] Remove __devinit and __cpuinit from notifier_call definitionsChandra Seetharaman7-7/+7
Few of the notifier_chain_register() callers use __init in the definition of notifier_call. It is incorrect as the function definition should be available after the initializations (they do not unregister them during initializations). This patch fixes all such usages to _not_ have the notifier_call __init section. Signed-off-by: Chandra Seetharaman <sekharan@us.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
