* Revert "kernel: make /proc/kallsyms mode 400 to reduce ease of attacking"Linus Torvalds2010-11-191-1/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This reverts commit 59365d136d205cc20fe666ca7f89b1c5001b0d5a. It turns out that this can break certain existing user land setups. Quoth Sarah Sharp: "On Wednesday, I updated my branch to commit 460781b from linus' tree, and my box would not boot. klogd segfaulted, which stalled the whole system. At first I thought it actually hung the box, but it continued booting after 5 minutes, and I was able to log in. It dropped back to the text console instead of the graphical bootup display for that period of time. dmesg surprisingly still works. I've bisected the problem down to this commit (commit 59365d136d205cc20fe666ca7f89b1c5001b0d5a) The box is running klogd 1.5.5ubuntu3 (from Jaunty). Yes, I know that's old. I read the bit in the commit about changing the permissions of kallsyms after boot, but if I can't boot that doesn't help." So let's just keep the old default, and encourage distributions to do the "chmod -r /proc/kallsyms" in their bootup scripts. This is not worth a kernel option to change default behavior, since it's so easily done in user space.

This is the second submit, discussion happened on this on first submit and mostly concerned that this is just one hole of the sieve ... but one of the bigger ones. Changing the permissions of at least System.map and vmlinux is also required to fix the same set, but a packaging issue. Target of this starter patch and follow ups is removing any kind of kernel space address information leak from the kernel. [ Side note: the default of root-only reading is the "safe" value, and it's easy enough to then override at any time after boot. The /proc filesystem allows root to change the permissions with a regular chmod, so you can "revert" this at run-time by simply doing chmod og+r /proc/kallsyms as root if you really want regular users to see the kernel symbols. It does help some tools like "perf" figure them out without any setup, so it may well make sense in some situations. - Linus ] Signed-off-by: Marcus Meissner <meissner@suse.de> Acked-by: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org> Acked-by: Eugene Teo <eugeneteo@kernel.org> Reviewed-by: Jesper Juhl <jj@chaosbits.net> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>

As the number of cores and threads are increasing, current values of imbalance_pct (for example 25% for a NUMA domain) are not enough to detect imbalances like: a) On a WSM-EP system (two sockets, each having 6 cores and 12 logical threads), 24 cpu-hogging tasks get scheduled as 13 on one socket and 11 on another socket. Leading to an idle HT cpu. b) On a hypothetial 2 socket NHM-EX system (each socket having 8 cores and 16 logical threads), 16 cpu-hogging tasks can get scheduled as 9 on one socket and 7 on another socket. Leaving one core in a socket idle whereas in another socket we have a core having both its HT siblings busy. While this issue can be fixed by decreasing the domain's imbalance_pct (by making it a function of number of logical cpus in the domain), it can potentially cause more task migrations across sched groups in an overloaded case. Fix this by using imbalance_pct only during newly_idle and busy load balancing. And during idle load balancing, check if there is an imbalance in number of idle cpu's across the busiest and this sched_group or if the busiest group has more tasks than its weight that the idle cpu in this_group can pull.

Without this patch both time_enabled and time_running are bogus when user asks for PERF_SAMPLE_READ. One uses PERF_SAMPLE_READ to sample the values of other counters in each sample. Because of multiplexing, it is necessary to know both time_enabled, time_running to be able to scale counts correctly. In this second version of the patch, we maintain a shadow copy of ctx->time which allows us to compute ctx->time without calling update_context_time() from NMI context. We avoid the issue that update_context_time() must always be called with ctx->lock held. We do not keep shadow copies of the other event timings because if the lead event is overflowing then it is active and thus it's been scheduled in via event_sched_in() in which case neither tstamp_stopped, tstamp_running can be modified. This timing logic only applies to samples when PERF_SAMPLE_READ is used. Note that this patch does not address timing issues related to sampling inheritance between tasks. This will be addressed in a future patch.

* | Restrict unprivileged access to kernel syslogDan Rosenberg2010-11-122-0/+15
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | The kernel syslog contains debugging information that is often useful during exploitation of other vulnerabilities, such as kernel heap addresses. Rather than futilely attempt to sanitize hundreds (or thousands) of printk statements and simultaneously cripple useful debugging functionality, it is far simpler to create an option that prevents unprivileged users from reading the syslog. This patch, loosely based on grsecurity's GRKERNSEC_DMESG, creates the dmesg_restrict sysctl. When set to "0", the default, no restrictions are enforced. When set to "1", only users with CAP_SYS_ADMIN can read the kernel syslog via dmesg(8) or other mechanisms.

|/ | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | clean_sort_range() should return a number of nonempty elements of range array, but if the array is full clean_sort_range() returns 0. The problem is that the number of nonempty elements is evaluated by finding the first empty element of the array. If there is no such element it returns an initial value of local variable nr_range that is zero. The fix is trivial: it changes initial value of nr_range to size of the array. The bug can lead to loss of information regarding all ranges, since typically returned value of clean_sort_range() is considered as an actual number of ranges in the array after a series of add/subtract operations.

* posix-cpu-timers: workaround to suppress the problems with mt execOleg Nesterov2010-11-051-0/+8
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | posix-cpu-timers.c correctly assumes that the dying process does posix_cpu_timers_exit_group() and removes all !CPUCLOCK_PERTHREAD timers from signal->cpu_timers list. But, it also assumes that timer->it.cpu.task is always the group leader, and thus the dead ->task means the dead thread group. This is obviously not true after de_thread() changes the leader. After that almost every posix_cpu_timer_ method has problems. It is not simple to fix this bug correctly. First of all, I think that timer->it.cpu should use struct pid instead of task_struct. Also, the locking should be reworked completely. In particular, tasklist_lock should not be used at all. This all needs a lot of nontrivial and hard-to-test changes. Change __exit_signal() to do posix_cpu_timers_exit_group() when the old leader dies during exec. This is not the fix, just the temporary hack to hide the problem for 2.6.37 and stable. IOW, this is obviously wrong but this is what we currently have anyway: cpu timers do not work after mt exec. In theory this change adds another race. The exiting leader can detach the timers which were attached to the new leader. However, the window between de_thread() and release_task() is small, we can pretend that sys_timer_create() was called before de_thread().

* Clean up relay_alloc_page_array() slightly by using vzalloc rather than ↵Jesper Juhl2010-11-051-11/+4
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | vmalloc and memset We can optimize kernel/relay.c::relay_alloc_page_array() slightly by using vzalloc.

But this reordering moved the jump label mutex into a preempt disable location. This patch does a little fiddling to move the grabbing of the jump label mutex from inside the preempt disable section and still keep the order correct between the mutex and the kprobes lock.

However, the jump label code takes those mutexes in the reverse order. Fix by requiring the caller of jump_label_text_reserved() to do the jump label locking via the newly added: jump_label_lock(), jump_label_unlock(). Currently, kprobes is the only user of jump_label_text_reserved().

However, between the check for a valid module __init section and the subsequent jump label update, the module's __init section could be freed out from under us. We fix this potential race by adding a notifier callback to the MODULE_STATE_LIVE state. This notifier is called *after* the __init section has been run but before it is going to be freed. In the callback, the jump label code zeros the key value for any __init jump code within the module, and we add a check for a non-zero key value when we update jump labels. In this way we require no additional data structures. Thanks to Mathieu Desnoyers for pointing out this race condition.

Solve this by acquiring a reference to the task struct under rcu_read_lock and call tty_audit_push_task outside of the preempt disabled region. Move all code which needs to be protected by sighand lock into tty_audit_push_task() and use lock/unlock_sighand as we do not hold tasklist_lock.
