* IPC: fix error check in all new xxx_lock() and xxx_exit_ns() functionsPierre Peiffer2008-02-061-3/+14
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | In the new implementation of the [sem|shm|msg]_lock[_check]() routines, we use the return value of ipc_lock() in container_of() without any check. But ipc_lock may return a errcode. The use of this errcode in container_of() may alter this errcode, and we don't want this. And in xxx_exit_ns, the pointer return by idr_find is of type 'struct kern_ipc_per'... Today, the code will work as is because the member used in these container_of() is the first member of its container (offset == 0), the errcode isn't changed then. But in the general case, we can't count on this assumption and this may lead later to a real bug if we don't correct this. Again, the proposed solution is simple and correct. But, as pointed by Nadia, with this solution, the same check will be done several times (in all sub-callers...), what is not very funny/optimal...

* IPC: fix error case when idr-cache is empty in ipcget()Pierre Peiffer2007-10-191-2/+2
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | 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.

* fix idr_find() lockingNadia Derbey2007-10-191-12/+29
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | 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.

* pid namespaces: changes to show virtual ids to userPavel Emelyanov2007-10-191-3/+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.

* [PATCH] Fix the size limit of compat space msgsizesuzuki2006-12-071-11/+33
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | 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().

* Revert unintentional "volatile" changes in ipc/msg.cLinus Torvalds2006-11-041-1/+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.

* [PATCH] Fix ipc entries removalPavel Emelianov2006-11-031-0/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | 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.

* [PATCH] update of IPC audit record cleanupLinda Knippers2006-06-201-4/+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>
* [PATCH] Rework of IPC auditingSteve Grubb2006-05-011-1/+10
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | 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>

Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!
