AppArmor: Fix sleep in invalid context from task_setrlimit
Affected kernels 2.6.36 - 3.0 AppArmor may do a GFP_KERNEL memory allocation with task_lock(tsk->group_leader); held when called from security_task_setrlimit. This will only occur when the task's current policy has been replaced, and the task's creds have not been updated before entering the LSM security_task_setrlimit() hook. BUG: sleeping function called from invalid context at mm/slub.c:847 in_atomic(): 1, irqs_disabled(): 0, pid: 1583, name: cupsd 2 locks held by cupsd/1583: #0: (tasklist_lock){.+.+.+}, at: [<ffffffff8104dafa>] do_prlimit+0x61/0x189 #1: (&(&p->alloc_lock)->rlock){+.+.+.}, at: [<ffffffff8104db2d>] do_prlimit+0x94/0x189 Pid: 1583, comm: cupsd Not tainted 3.0.0-rc2-git1 #7 Call Trace: [<ffffffff8102ebf2>] __might_sleep+0x10d/0x112 [<ffffffff810e6f46>] slab_pre_alloc_hook.isra.49+0x2d/0x33 [<ffffffff810e7bc4>] kmem_cache_alloc+0x22/0x132 [<ffffffff8105b6e6>] prepare_creds+0x35/0xe4 [<ffffffff811c0675>] aa_replace_current_profile+0x35/0xb2 [<ffffffff811c4d2d>] aa_current_profile+0x45/0x4c [<ffffffff811c4d4d>] apparmor_task_setrlimit+0x19/0x3a [<ffffffff811beaa5>] security_task_setrlimit+0x11/0x13 [<ffffffff8104db6b>] do_prlimit+0xd2/0x189 [<ffffffff8104dea9>] sys_setrlimit+0x3b/0x48 [<ffffffff814062bb>] system_call_fastpath+0x16/0x1b Signed-off-by: John Johansen <john.johansen@canonical.com> Reported-by: Miles Lane <miles.lane@gmail.com> Cc: stable@kernel.org Signed-off-by: James Morris <jmorris@namei.org>
