* ipc: only output msgmni value at boot timeNadia Derbey2008-06-061-7/+6
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | When posting: [PATCH 1/8] Scaling msgmni to the amount of lowmem (see http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/2/11/171), I have added a KERN_INFO message that is output each time msgmni is recomputed. In http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/4/29/575 Tony Luck complained that this message references an ipc namespace address that is useless. I first thought of using an audit_log instead of a printk, as suggested by Serge Hallyn. But unfortunately, we do not have any other information than the namespace address to provide here too. So I chose to move the message and output it only at boot time, removing the reference to the namespace.

* IPC: consolidate all xxxctl_down() functionsPierre Peiffer2008-04-291-43/+5
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | semctl_down(), msgctl_down() and shmctl_down() are used to handle the same set of commands for each kind of IPC. They all start to do the same job (they retrieve the ipc and do some permission checks) before handling the commands on their own. This patch proposes to consolidate this by moving these same pieces of code into one common function called ipcctl_pre_down(). It simplifies a little these xxxctl_down() functions and increases a little the maintainability.

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | All IPCs make use of an intermetiate *_setbuf structure to handle the IPC_SET command. This is not really needed and, moreover, it complicates a little bit the code. This patch gets rid of the use of it and uses directly the semid64_ds/ msgid64_ds/shmid64_ds structure.

* IPC/message queues: introduce msgctl_downPierre Peiffer2008-04-291-73/+89
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Currently, sys_msgctl is not easy to read. This patch tries to improve that by introducing the msgctl_down function to handle all commands requiring the rwmutex to be taken in write mode (ie IPC_SET and IPC_RMID for now). It is the equivalent function of semctl_down for message queues. This greatly changes the readability of sys_msgctl and also harmonizes the way these commands are handled among all IPCs.

* ipc: recompute msgmni on memory add / removeNadia Derbey2008-04-291-1/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Introduce the registration of a callback routine that recomputes msg_ctlmni upon memory add / remove. A single notifier block is registered in the hotplug memory chain for all the ipc namespaces. Since the ipc namespaces are not linked together, they have their own notification chain: one notifier_block is defined per ipc namespace. Each time an ipc namespace is created (removed) it registers (unregisters) its notifier block in (from) the ipcns chain. The callback routine registered in the memory chain invokes the ipcns notifier chain with the IPCNS_LOWMEM event. Each callback routine registered in the ipcns namespace, in turn, recomputes msgmni for the owning namespace.

* ipc: scale msgmni to the amount of lowmemNadia Derbey2008-04-291-1/+36
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | On large systems we'd like to allow a larger number of message queues. In some cases up to 32K. However simply setting MSGMNI to a larger value may cause problems for smaller systems. The first patch of this series introduces a default maximum number of message queue ids that scales with the amount of lowmem. Since msgmni is per namespace and there is no amount of memory dedicated to each namespace so far, the second patch of this series scales msgmni to the number of ipc namespaces too. Since msgmni depends on the amount of memory, it becomes necessary to recompute it upon memory add/remove. In the 4th patch, memory hotplug management is added: a notifier block is registered into the memory hotplug notifier chain for the ipc subsystem. Since the ipc namespaces are not linked together, they have their own notification chain: one notifier_block is defined per ipc namespace. Each time an ipc namespace is created (removed) it registers (unregisters) its notifier block in (from) the ipcns chain. The callback routine registered in the memory chain invokes the ipcns notifier chain with the IPCNS_MEMCHANGE event. Each callback routine registered in the ipcns namespace, in turn, recomputes msgmni for the owning namespace. The 5th patch makes it possible to keep the memory hotplug notifier chain's lock for a lesser amount of time: instead of directly notifying the ipcns notifier chain upon memory add/remove, a work item is added to the global workqueue. When activated, this work item is the one who notifies the ipcns notifier chain. Since msgmni depends on the number of ipc namespaces, it becomes necessary to recompute it upon ipc namespace creation / removal. The 6th patch uses the ipc namespace notifier chain for that purpose: that chain is notified each time an ipc namespace is created or removed. This makes it possible to recompute msgmni for all the namespaces each time one of them is created or removed. When msgmni is explicitely set from userspace, we should avoid recomputing it upon memory add/remove or ipcns creation/removal. This is what the 7th patch does: it simply unregisters the ipcns callback routine as soon as msgmni has been changed from procfs or sysctl(). Even if msgmni is set by hand, it should be possible to make it back automatically recomputed upon memory add/remove or ipcns creation/removal. This what is achieved in patch 8: if set to a negative value, msgmni is added back to the ipcns notifier chain, making it automatically recomputed again. This patch: Compute msg_ctlmni to make it scale with the amount of lowmem. msg_ctlmni is now set to make the message queues occupy 1/32 of the available lowmem. Some cleaning has also been done for the MSGPOOL constant: the msgctl man page says it's not used, but it also defines it as a size in bytes (the code expresses it in Kbytes).

* IPC: consolidate sem_exit_ns(), msg_exit_ns() and shm_exit_ns()Pierre Peiffer2008-02-081-23/+5
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | sem_exit_ns(), msg_exit_ns() and shm_exit_ns() are all called when an ipc_namespace is released to free all ipcs of each type. But in fact, they do the same thing: they loop around all ipcs to free them individually by calling a specific routine. This patch proposes to consolidate this by introducing a common function, free_ipcs(), that do the job. The specific routine to call on each individual ipcs is passed as parameter. For this, these ipc-specific 'free' routines are reworked to take a generic 'struct ipc_perm' as parameter.

* IPC: make struct ipc_ids static in ipc_namespacePierre Peiffer2008-02-081-22/+4
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Each ipc_namespace contains a table of 3 pointers to struct ipc_ids (3 for msg, sem and shm, structure used to store all ipcs) These 'struct ipc_ids' are dynamically allocated for each icp_namespace as the ipc_namespace itself (for the init namespace, they are initialized with pointers to static variables instead) It is so for historical reason: in fact, before the use of idr to store the ipcs, the ipcs were stored in tables of variable length, depending of the maximum number of ipc allowed. Now, these 'struct ipc_ids' have a fixed size. As they are allocated in any cases for each new ipc_namespace, there is no gain of memory in having them allocated separately of the struct ipc_namespace. This patch proposes to make this table static in the struct ipc_namespace. Thus, we can allocate all in once and get rid of all the code needed to allocate and free these ipc_ids separately.

* namespaces: move the IPC namespace under IPC_NS optionPavel Emelyanov2008-02-081-0/+3
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Currently the IPC namespace management code is spread over the ipc/*.c files. I moved this code into ipc/namespace.c file which is compiled out when needed. The linux/ipc_namespace.h file is used to store the prototypes of the functions in namespace.c and the stubs for NAMESPACES=n case. This is done so, because the stub for copy_ipc_namespace requires the knowledge of the CLONE_NEWIPC flag, which is in sched.h. But the linux/ipc.h file itself in included into many many .c files via the sys.h->sem.h sequence so adding the sched.h into it will make all these .c depend on sched.h which is not that good. On the other hand the knowledge about the namespaces stuff is required in 4 .c files only. Besides, this patch compiles out some auxiliary functions from ipc/sem.c, msg.c and shm.c files. It turned out that moving these functions into namespaces.c is not that easy because they use many other calls and macros from the original file. Moving them would make this patch complicated. On the other hand all these functions can be consolidated, so I will send a separate patch doing this a bit later.

* 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...

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | 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().

* [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>

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | 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).

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!
