ipc: sysvsem: implement sys_unshare(CLONE_SYSVSEM)
sys_unshare(CLONE_NEWIPC) doesn't handle the undo lists properly, this can cause a kernel memory corruption. CLONE_NEWIPC must detach from the existing undo lists. Fix, part 1: add support for sys_unshare(CLONE_SYSVSEM) The original reason to not support it was the potential (inevitable?) confusion due to the fact that sys_unshare(CLONE_SYSVSEM) has the inverse meaning of clone(CLONE_SYSVSEM). Our two most reasonable options then appear to be (1) fully support CLONE_SYSVSEM, or (2) continue to refuse explicit CLONE_SYSVSEM, but always do it anyway on unshare(CLONE_SYSVSEM). This patch does (1). Changelog: Apr 16: SEH: switch to Manfred's alternative patch which removes the unshare_semundo() function which always refused CLONE_SYSVSEM.
