2012-11-14userns: Support autofs4 interacing with multiple user namespacesEric W. Biederman
Use kuid_t and kgid_t in struct autofs_info and struct autofs_wait_queue. When creating directories and symlinks default the uid and gid of the mount requester to the global root uid and gid. autofs4_wait will update these fields when a mount is requested. When generating autofsv5 packets report the uid and gid of the mount requestor in user namespace of the process that opened the pipe, reporting unmapped uids and gids as overflowuid and overflowgid. In autofs_dev_ioctl_requester return the uid and gid of the last mount requester converted into the calling processes user namespace. When the uid or gid don't map return overflowuid and overflowgid as appropriate, allowing failure to find a mount requester to be distinguished from failure to map a mount requester. The uid and gid mount options specifying the user and group of the root autofs inode are converted into kuid and kgid as they are parsed defaulting to the current uid and current gid of the process that mounts autofs. Mounting of autofs for the present remains confined to processes in the initial user namespace.

2012-04-28Revert "autofs: work around unhappy compat problem on x86-64"Linus Torvalds
This reverts commit a32744d4abae24572eff7269bc17895c41bd0085. While that commit was technically the right thing to do, and made the x86-64 compat mode work identically to native 32-bit mode (and thus fixing the problem with a 32-bit systemd install on a 64-bit kernel), it turns out that the automount binaries had workarounds for this compat problem. Now, the workarounds are disgusting: doing an "uname()" to find out the architecture of the kernel, and then comparing it for the 64-bit cases and fixing up the size of the read() in automount for those. And they were confused: it's not actually a generic 64-bit issue at all, it's very much tied to just x86-64, which has different alignment for an 'u64' in 64-bit mode than in 32-bit mode. But the end result is that fixing the compat layer actually breaks the case of a 32-bit automount on a x86-64 kernel. There are various approaches to fix this (including just doing a "strcmp()" on current->comm and comparing it to "automount"), but I think that I will do the one that teaches pipes about a special "packet mode", which will allow user space to not have to care too deeply about the padding at the end of the autofs packet. That change will make the compat workaround unnecessary, so let's revert it first, and get automount working again in compat mode. The packetized pipes will then fix autofs for systemd.

2012-02-25autofs: work around unhappy compat problem on x86-64Ian Kent
When the autofs protocol version 5 packet type was added in commit 5c0a32fc2cd0 ("autofs4: add new packet type for v5 communications"), it obvously tried quite hard to be word-size agnostic, and uses explicitly sized fields that are all correctly aligned. However, with the final "char name[NAME_MAX+1]" array at the end, the actual size of the structure ends up being not very well defined: because the struct isn't marked 'packed', doing a "sizeof()" on it will align the size of the struct up to the biggest alignment of the members it has. And despite all the members being the same, the alignment of them is different: a "__u64" has 4-byte alignment on x86-32, but native 8-byte alignment on x86-64. And while 'NAME_MAX+1' ends up being a nice round number (256), the name[] array starts out a 4-byte aligned. End result: the "packed" size of the structure is 300 bytes: 4-byte, but not 8-byte aligned. As a result, despite all the fields being in the same place on all architectures, sizeof() will round up that size to 304 bytes on architectures that have 8-byte alignment for u64. Note that this is *not* a problem for 32-bit compat mode on POWER, since there __u64 is 8-byte aligned even in 32-bit mode. But on x86, 32-bit and 64-bit alignment is different for 64-bit entities, and as a result the structure that has exactly the same layout has different sizes. So on x86-64, but no other architecture, we will just subtract 4 from the size of the structure when running in a compat task. That way we will write the properly sized packet that user mode expects. Not pretty. Sadly, this very subtle, and unnecessary, size difference has been encoded in user space that wants to read packets of *exactly* the right size, and will refuse to touch anything else.

2012-01-11autofs4: catatonic_mode vs. notify_daemon raceAl Viro
we need to hold ->wq_mutex while we are forming the packet to send, lest we have autofs4_catatonic_mode() setting wq->name.name to NULL just as autofs4_notify_daemon() decides to memcpy() from it... We do have check for catatonic mode immediately after that (under ->wq_mutex, as it ought to be) and packet won't be actually sent, but it'll be too late for us if we oops on that memcpy() from NULL...

2011-08-08autofs4: fix debug printk warning uncovered by cleanupLinus Torvalds
The previous comit made the autofs4 debug printouts check types against the printout format, and uncovered this bug: fs/autofs4/waitq.c:106:2: warning: format ‘%08lx’ expects type ‘long unsigned int’, but argument 4 has type ‘autofs_wqt_t’ which is due to the insane type for wait_queue_token. That thing should be some fixed well-defined size (preferably just 'unsigned int' or 'u32') but for unexplained reasons it is randomly either 'unsigned long' or 'unsigned int' depending on the architecture. For now, cast it to 'unsigned long' for printing, the way we do elsewhere. Somebody else can try to explain the typedef mess.

2011-01-07fs: Use rename lock and RCU for multi-step operationsNick Piggin
The remaining usages for dcache_lock is to allow atomic, multi-step read-side operations over the directory tree by excluding modifications to the tree. Also, to walk in the leaf->root direction in the tree where we don't have a natural d_lock ordering. This could be accomplished by taking every d_lock, but this would mean a huge number of locks and actually gets very tricky. Solve this instead by using the rename seqlock for multi-step read-side operations, retry in case of a rename so we don't walk up the wrong parent. Concurrent dentry insertions are not serialised against. Concurrent deletes are tricky when walking up the directory: our parent might have been deleted when dropping locks so also need to check and retry for that. We can also use the rename lock in cases where livelock is a worry (and it is introduced in subsequent patch). Signed-off-by: Nick Piggin <npiggin@kernel.dk>
2009-06-09autofs4: remove hashed check in validate_wait()Ian Kent
The recent ->lookup() deadlock correction required the directory inode mutex to be dropped while waiting for expire completion. We were concerned about side effects from this change and one has been identified. I saw several error messages. They cause autofs to become quite confused and don't really point to the actual problem. Things like: handle_packet_missing_direct:1376: can't find map entry for (43,1827932) which is usually totally fatal (although in this case it wouldn't be except that I treat is as such because it normally is). do_mount_direct: direct trigger not valid or already mounted /test/nested/g3c/s1/ss1 which is recoverable, however if this problem is at play it can cause autofs to become quite confused as to the dependencies in the mount tree because mount triggers end up mounted multiple times. It's hard to accurately check for this over mounting case and automount shouldn't need to if the kernel module is doing its job. There was one other message, similar in consequence of this last one but I can't locate a log example just now. When checking if a mount has already completed prior to adding a new mount request to the wait queue we check if the dentry is hashed and, if so, if it is a mount point. But, if a mount successfully completed while we slept on the wait queue mutex the dentry must exist for the mount to have completed so the test is not really needed. Mounts can also be done on top of a global root dentry, so for the above case, where a mount request completes and the wait queue entry has already been removed, the hashed test returning false can cause an incorrect callback to the daemon. Also, d_mountpoint() is not sufficient to check if a mount has completed for the multi-mount case when we don't have a real mount at the base of the tree.

2009-01-06autofs4: make autofs type usage explicitIan Kent
- the type assigned at mount when no type is given is changed from 0 to AUTOFS_TYPE_INDIRECT. This was done because 0 and AUTOFS_TYPE_INDIRECT were being treated implicitly as the same type. - previously, an offset mount had it's type set to AUTOFS_TYPE_DIRECT|AUTOFS_TYPE_OFFSET but the mount control re-implementation needs to be able distinguish all three types. So this was changed to make the type setting explicit. - a type AUTOFS_TYPE_ANY was added for use by the re-implementation when checking if a given path is a mountpoint. It's not really a type as we use this to ask if a given path is a mountpoint in the autofs_dev_ioctl_ismountpoint() function. - functions to set and test the autofs mount types have been added to improve readability and make the type usage explicit. - the mount type is used from user space for the mount control re-implementtion so, for consistency, all the definitions have been moved to the user space include file include/linux/auto_fs4.h.

2008-07-24autofs4: indirect dentry must almost always be positiveIan Kent
We have been seeing mount requests comming to the automount daemon for keys of the form "<map key>/<non key directory>" which are lookups for invalid map keys. But we can check for this in the kernel module and return a fail immediately, without having to send a request to the daemon. It is possible to recognise these requests are invalid based on whether the request dentry is negative and its relation to the autofs file system root. For example, given the indirect multi-mount map entry: idm1 \ /mm1 <server>:/<path1> /mm2 <server>:/<path2> For a request to mount idm1, IS_ROOT((idm1)->d_parent) will be always be true and the dentry may be negative. But directories idm1/mm1 and idm1/mm2 will always be created as part of the mount request for idm1. So any mount request within idm1 itself must have a positive dentry otherwise the map key is invalid. In version 4 these multi-mount entries are all mounted and umounted as a single request and in version 5 the directories idm1/mm1 and idm1/mm2 are created and an autofs fs mounted on them to act as a mount trigger so the above is also true. This also holds true for the autofs version 4 pseudo direct mount feature. When this feature is used without the "--ghost" option automount(8) will create internal submounts as we go down the map key paths which are essentially normal indirect mounts for which the above holds. If the "--ghost" option is given the directories for map keys are created at daemon startup so valid map entries correspond to postive dentries in the autofs fs. autofs version 5 direct mount maps are similar except that the IS_ROOT check is not needed. This has been addressed in a previous patch tittled "autofs4 - detect invalid direct mount requests". For example, given the direct multi-mount map entry: /test/dm1 \ /mm1 <server>:/<path1> /mm2 <server>:/<path2> An autofs fs is mounted on /test/dm1 as a trigger mount and when a mount is triggered for /test/dm1, the multi-mount offset directories /test/dm1/mm1 and /test/dm1/mm2 are created and an autofs fs is mounted on them to act as mount triggers. So valid direct mount requests must always have a positive dentry if they correspond to a valid map entry.

There are also races decrementing the wait counter in the wait release function.

2008-07-24autofs4: fix pending mount raceIan Kent
Close a race between a pending mount that is about to finish and a new lookup for the same directory. Process P1 triggers a mount of directory foo. It sets DCACHE_AUTOFS_PENDING in the ->lookup routine, creates a waitq entry for 'foo', and calls out to the daemon to perform the mount. The autofs daemon will then create the directory 'foo', using a new dentry that will be hashed in the dcache. Before the mount completes, another process, P2, tries to walk into the 'foo' directory. The vfs path walking code finds an entry for 'foo' and calls the revalidate method. Revalidate finds that the entry is not PENDING (because PENDING was never set on the dentry created by the mkdir), but it does find the directory is empty. Revalidate calls try_to_fill_dentry, which sets the PENDING flag and then calls into the autofs4 wait code to trigger or wait for a mount of 'foo'. The wait code finds the entry for 'foo' and goes to sleep waiting for the completion of the mount. Yet another process, P3, tries to walk into the 'foo' directory. This process again finds a dentry in the dcache for 'foo', and calls into the autofs revalidate code. The revalidate code finds that the PENDING flag is set, and so calls try_to_fill_dentry. a) try_to_fill_dentry sets the PENDING flag redundantly for this dentry, then calls into the autofs4 wait code. b) the autofs4 wait code takes the waitq mutex and searches for an entry for 'foo' Between a and b, P1 is woken up because the mount completed. P1 takes the wait queue mutex, clears the PENDING flag from the dentry, and removes the waitqueue entry for 'foo' from the list. When it releases the waitq mutex, P3 (eventually) acquires it. At this time, it looks for an existing waitq for 'foo', finds none, and so creates a new one and calls out to the daemon to mount the 'foo' directory. Now, the reason that three processes are required to trigger this race is that, because the PENDING flag is not set on the dentry created by mkdir, the window for the race would be way to slim for it to ever occur. Basically, between the testing of d_mountpoint(dentry) and the taking of the waitq mutex, the mount would have to complete and the daemon would have to be woken up, and that in turn would have to wake up P1. This is simply impossible. Add the third process, though, and it becomes slightly more likely.

2005-06-21[PATCH] autofs4: post expire race fixIan Kent
At the tail end of an expire it's possible for a process to enter autofs4_wait, with a waitq type of NFY_NONE but find that the expire is finished. In this cause autofs4_wait will try to create a new wait but not notify the daemon leading to a hang. As the wait type is meant to delay mount requests from revalidate or lookup during an expire and the expire is done all we need to do is check if the dentry is a mountpoint. If it's not then we're done. Signed-off-by: Ian Kent <raven@themaw.net> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>

It's possible for an event wait request to arive before the event requestor. If this happens the daemon never gets notified and autofs hangs. Signed-off-by: Ian Kent <raven@themaw.net> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>

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!
