2013-04-30kernel/sys.c: make prctl(PR_SET_MM) generally availableAmnon Shiloh
The purpose of this patch is to allow privileged processes to set their own per-memory memory-region fields: start_code, end_code, start_data, end_data, start_brk, brk, start_stack, arg_start, arg_end, env_start, env_end. This functionality is needed by any application or package that needs to reconstruct Linux processes, that is, to start them in any way other than by means of an "execve()" from an executable file. This includes: 1. Restoring processes from a checkpoint-file (by all potential user-level checkpointing packages, not only CRIU's). 2. Restarting processes on another node after process migration. 3. Starting duplicated copies of a running process (for reliability and high-availablity). 4. Starting a process from an executable format that is not supported by Linux, thus requiring a "manual execve" by a user-level utility. 5. Similarly, starting a process from a networked and/or crypted executable that, for confidentiality, licensing or other reasons, may not be written to the local file-systems. The code that does that was already included in the Linux kernel by the CRIU group, in the form of "prctl(PR_SET_MM)", but prior to this was enclosed within their private "#ifdef CONFIG_CHECKPOINT_RESTORE", which is normally disabled. The patch removes those ifdefs.

This can be inconvenient, especially when it's set to n and we want to find out why. the following is an example: before: Symbol: GENERIC_SMP_IDLE_THREAD [=y] Type : boolean Selected by: X86 [=y] after: Symbol: GENERIC_SMP_IDLE_THREAD [=y] Type : boolean Defined at arch/Kconfig:213 Selected by: X86 [=y] Signed-off-by: Weng Meiling <wengmeiling.weng@huawei.com> Signed-off-by: Libo Chen <libo.chen@huawei.com> Cc: Michal Marek <mmarek@suse.cz> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
2013-04-30init/Kconfig: re-order CONFIG_EXPERT options to fix menuconfig displayMike Frysinger
The kconfig language requires that dependent options all follow the menuconfig symbol in order to be collapsed below it. Recently some hidden options were added below the EXPERT menuconfig, but did not depend on EXPERT (because hidden options can't). This broke the display. So re-order all these options, and while we're here stick the PCI quirks under the EXPERT menu (since it isn't sitting with any related options). Before this commit, we get: [*] Configure standard kernel features (expert users) ---> [ ] Sysctl syscall support [*] Load all symbols for debugging/ksymoops ... [ ] Embedded system Now we get the older (and correct) behavior: [*] Configure standard kernel features (expert users) ---> [ ] Embedded system And if you go into the expert menu you get the expert options: [ ] Sysctl syscall support [*] Load all symbols for debugging/ksymoops ...

2013-04-30Kconfig: consolidate CONFIG_DEBUG_STRICT_USER_COPY_CHECKSStephen Boyd
The help text for this config is duplicated across the x86, parisc, and s390 Kconfig.debug files. Arnd Bergman noted that the help text was slightly misleading and should be fixed to state that enabling this option isn't a problem when using pre 4.4 gcc. To simplify the rewording, consolidate the text into lib/Kconfig.debug and modify it there to be more explicit about when you should say N to this config. Also, make the text a bit more generic by stating that this option enables compile time checks so we can cover architectures which emit warnings vs. ones which emit errors. The details of how an architecture decided to implement the checks isn't as important as the concept of compile time checking of copy_from_user() calls. While we're doing this, remove all the copy_from_user_overflow() code that's duplicated many times and place it into lib/ so that any architecture supporting this option can get the function for free.

2013-04-30kernel/pid.c: improve flow of a loop inside alloc_pidmap.Raphael S. Carvalho
find_next_offset() searches for an available "cleaned bit" in the respective pid bitmap (page), so returns the offset if found, otherwise it returns a value equals to BITS_PER_PAGE. For example, suppose find_next_offset didn't find any available bit, so there's no purpose to call mk_pid (Wasteful Cpu Cycles). Therefore, I found it could be better to call mk_pid after the checking (offset < BITS_PER_PAGE) returned sucessfully! Another point: If (offset < BITS_PER_PAGE) results in a "failure", then mk_pid would be called again afterwards. [akpm@linux-foundation.org: simplify code] Signed-off-by: Raphael S.

threadgroup_lock() takes signal->cred_guard_mutex to ensure that thread_group_leader() is stable. This doesn't look nice, the scope of this lock in do_execve() is huge. And as Dave pointed out this can lead to deadlock, we have the following dependencies: do_execve: cred_guard_mutex -> i_mutex cgroup_mount: i_mutex -> cgroup_mutex attach_task_by_pid: cgroup_mutex -> cred_guard_mutex Change de_thread() to take threadgroup_change_begin() around the switch-the-leader code and change threadgroup_lock() to avoid ->cred_guard_mutex. Note that de_thread() can't sleep with ->group_rwsem held, this can obviously deadlock with the exiting leader if the writer is active, so it does threadgroup_change_end() before schedule().

2013-04-30set_task_comm: kill the pointless memset() + wmb()Oleg Nesterov
set_task_comm() does memset() + wmb() before strlcpy(). This buys nothing and to add to the confusion, the comment is wrong. - We do not need memset() to be "safe from non-terminating string reads", the final char is always zero and we never change it. - wmb() is paired with nothing, it cannot prevent from printing the mixture of the old/new data unless the reader takes the lock.

2013-04-30fs, proc: truncate /proc/pid/comm writes to first TASK_COMM_LEN bytesDavid Rientjes
Currently, a write to a procfs file will return the number of bytes successfully written. If the actual string is longer than this, the remainder of the string will not be be written and userspace will complete the operation by issuing additional write()s. Hence $ echo -n "abcdefghijklmnopqrs" > /proc/self/comm results in $ cat /proc/$$/comm pqrs since the final four bytes were written with a second write() since TASK_COMM_LEN == 16. This is obviously an undesired result and not equivalent to prctl(PR_SET_NAME). The implementation should not need to know the definition of TASK_COMM_LEN. This patch truncates the string to the first TASK_COMM_LEN bytes and returns the bytes written as the length of the string written so the second write() is suppressed. $ cat /proc/$$/comm abcdefghijklmno Signed-off-by: David Rientjes <rientjes@google.com> Acked-by: John Stultz <john.stultz@linaro.org> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
2013-04-30coredump: change wait_for_dump_helpers() to use wait_event_interruptible()Oleg Nesterov
wait_for_dump_helpers() calls wake_up/kill_fasync from inside the wait_event-like loop. This is not needed and in fact this is not strictly correct, we can/should do this only once after we change pipe->writers. We could even check if it becomes zero. Change this code to use use wait_event_interruptible(), this can also help to make this wait freezable. With this patch we check pipe->readers without pipe_lock(), this is fine. Once we see pipe->readers == 1 we know that the handler decremented the counter, this is all we need.

2013-04-30coredump: introduce dump_interrupted()Oleg Nesterov
By discussion with Mandeep. Change dump_write(), dump_seek() and do_coredump() to check signal_pending() and abort if it is true. dump_seek() does this only before f_op->llseek(), otherwise it relies on dump_write(). We need this change to ensure that the coredump won't delay suspend, and to ensure it reacts to SIGKILL "quickly enough", a core dump can take a lot of time. In particular this can help oom-killer. We add the new trivial helper, dump_interrupted() to add the comments and to simplify the potential freezer changes. Perhaps it will have more callers. Ideally it should do try_to_freeze() but then we need the unpleasant changes in dump_write() and wait_for_dump_helpers(). It is not trivial to change dump_write() to restart if f_op->write() fails because of freezing(). We need to handle the short writes, we need to clear TIF_SIGPENDING (and we can't rely on recalc_sigpending() unless we change it to check PF_DUMPCORE). And if the buggy f_op->write() sets TIF_SIGPENDING we can not distinguish this case from the race with freeze_task() + __thaw_task(). So we simply accept the fact that the freezer can truncate a core-dump but at least you can reliably suspend. Hopefully we can tolerate this unlikely case and the necessary complications doesn't worth a trouble. But if we decide to make the coredumping freezable later we can do this on top of this change.

2013-04-30coredump: sanitize the setting of signal->group_exit_codeOleg Nesterov
Now that the coredumping process can be SIGKILL'ed, the setting of ->group_exit_code in do_coredump() can race with complete_signal() and SIGKILL or 0x80 can be "lost", or wait(status) can report status == SIGKILL | 0x80. But the main problem is that it is not clear to me what should we do if binfmt->core_dump() succeeds but SIGKILL was sent, that is why this patch comes as a separate change. This patch adds 0x80 if ->core_dump() succeeds and the process was not killed. But perhaps we can (should?) re-set ->group_exit_code changed by SIGKILL back to "siginfo->si_signo |= 0x80" in case when core_dumped == T.

2013-04-30coredump: ensure that SIGKILL always kills the dumping threadOleg Nesterov
prepare_signal() blesses SIGKILL sent to the dumping process but this signal can be "lost" anyway. The problems is, complete_signal() sees SIGNAL_GROUP_EXIT and skips the "kill them all" logic. And even if the dumping process is single-threaded (so the target is always "correct"), the group-wide SIGKILL is not recorded in task->pending and thus __fatal_signal_pending() won't be true. A multi-threaded case has even more problems. And even ignoring all technical details, SIGNAL_GROUP_EXIT doesn't look right to me. This coredumping process is not exiting yet, it can do a lot of work dumping the core. With this patch the dumping process doesn't have SIGNAL_GROUP_EXIT, we set signal->group_exit_task instead. This makes signal_group_exit() true and thus this should equally close the races with exit/exec/stop but allows to kill the dumping thread reliably. Notes: - It is not clear what should we do with ->group_exit_code if the dumper was killed, see the next change. - we need more (hopefully straightforward) changes to ensure that SIGKILL actually interrupts the coredump. Basically we need to check __fatal_signal_pending() in dump_write() and dump_seek().

2013-04-30coredump: only SIGKILL should interrupt the coredumping taskOleg Nesterov
There are 2 well known and ancient problems with coredump/signals, and a lot of related bug reports: - do_coredump() clears TIF_SIGPENDING but of course this can't help if, say, SIGCHLD comes after that. In this case the coredump can fail unexpectedly. See for example wait_for_dump_helper()->signal_pending() check but there are other reasons. - At the same time, dumping a huge core on the slow media can take a lot of time/resources and there is no way to kill the coredumping task reliably. In particular this is not oom_kill-friendly. This patch tries to fix the 1st problem, and makes the preparation for the next changes. We add the new SIGNAL_GROUP_COREDUMP flag set by zap_threads() to indicate that this process dumps the core. prepare_signal() checks this flag and nacks any signal except SIGKILL. Note that this check tries to be conservative, in the long term we should probably treat the SIGNAL_GROUP_EXIT case equally but this needs more discussion. See marc.info/?l=linux-kernel&m=120508897917439 Notes: - recalc_sigpending() doesn't check SIGNAL_GROUP_COREDUMP. The patch assumes that dump_write/etc paths should never call it, but we can change it as well. - There is another source of TIF_SIGPENDING, freezer. This will be addressed separately.
