2012-12-19Bury the conditionals from kernel_thread/kernel_execve seriesAl Viro
All architectures have CONFIG_GENERIC_KERNEL_THREAD CONFIG_GENERIC_KERNEL_EXECVE __ARCH_WANT_SYS_EXECVE None of them have __ARCH_WANT_KERNEL_EXECVE and there are only two callers of kernel_execve() (which is a trivial wrapper for do_execve() now) left. Kill the conditionals and make both callers use do_execve(). Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>

* allow kernel_execve() leave the actual return to userland to caller (selected by CONFIG_GENERIC_KERNEL_EXECVE). Callers updated accordingly. * architecture that does select GENERIC_KERNEL_EXECVE in its Kconfig should have its ret_from_kernel_thread() do this: call schedule_tail call the callback left for it by copy_thread(); if it ever returns, that's because it has just done successful kernel_execve() jump to return from syscall IOW, its only difference from ret_from_fork() is that it does call the callback. * such an architecture should also get rid of ret_from_kernel_execve() and __ARCH_WANT_KERNEL_EXECVE This is the last part of infrastructure patches in that area - from that point on work on different architectures can live independently.

2012-10-12vfs: allocate page instead of names_cache buffer in mount_block_rootJeff Layton
First, it's incorrect to call putname() after __getname_gfp() since the bare __getname_gfp() call skips the auditing code, while putname() doesn't. mount_block_root allocates a PATH_MAX buffer via __getname_gfp, and then calls get_fs_names to fill the buffer. That function can call get_filesystem_list which assumes that that buffer is a full page in size. On arches where PAGE_SIZE != 4k, then this could potentially overrun. In practice, it's hard to imagine the list of filesystem names even approaching 4k, but it's best to be safe. Just allocate a page for this purpose instead. With this, we can also remove the __getname_gfp() definition since there are no more callers. Signed-off-by: Jeff Layton <jlayton@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>

2012-10-10MODSIGN: Implement module signature checkingDavid Howells
Check the signature on the module against the keys compiled into the kernel or available in a hardware key store. Currently, only RSA keys are supported - though that's easy enough to change, and the signature is expected to contain raw components (so not a PGP or PKCS#7 formatted blob). The signature blob is expected to consist of the following pieces in order: (1) The binary identifier for the key. This is expected to match the SubjectKeyIdentifier from an X.509 certificate. Only X.509 type identifiers are currently supported. (2) The signature data, consisting of a series of MPIs in which each is in the format of a 2-byte BE word sizes followed by the content data. (3) A 12 byte information block of the form: struct module_signature { enum pkey_algo algo : 8; enum pkey_hash_algo hash : 8; enum pkey_id_type id_type : 8; u8 __pad; __be32 id_length; __be32 sig_length; }; The three enums are defined in crypto/public_key.h. 'algo' contains the public-key algorithm identifier (0->DSA, 1->RSA). 'hash' contains the digest algorithm identifier (0->MD4, 1->MD5, 2->SHA1, etc.). 'id_type' contains the public-key identifier type (0->PGP, 1->X.509). '__pad' should be 0. 'id_length' should contain in the binary identifier length in BE form. 'sig_length' should contain in the signature data length in BE form. The lengths are in BE order rather than CPU order to make dealing with cross-compilation easier.

There's both a config option and a boot parameter which control whether we accept or fail with unsigned modules and modules that are signed with an unknown key. If module signing is enabled, the kernel will be tainted if a module is loaded that is unsigned or has a signature for which we don't have the key.

2012-10-08X.509: Add simple ASN.1 grammar compilerDavid Howells
Add a simple ASN.1 grammar compiler. This produces a bytecode output that can be fed to a decoder to inform the decoder how to interpret the ASN.1 stream it is trying to parse. Action functions can be specified in the grammar by interpolating: ({ foo }) after a type, for example: SubjectPublicKeyInfo ::= SEQUENCE { algorithm AlgorithmIdentifier, subjectPublicKey BIT STRING ({ do_key_data }) } The decoder is expected to call these after matching this type and parsing the contents if it is a constructed type. The grammar compiler does not currently support the SET type (though it does support SET OF) as I can't see a good way of tracking which members have been encountered yet without using up extra stack space. Currently, the grammar compiler will fail if more than 256 bytes of bytecode would be produced or more than 256 actions have been specified as it uses 8-bit jump values and action indices to keep space usage down.

This allows the code to code to compile with user namespaces enabled and removes the assumption there is only the initial user namespace. Everything is converted except for the most complex of the filesystems: autofs4, 9p, afs, ceph, cifs, coda, fuse, gfs2, ncpfs, nfs, ocfs2 and xfs as those patches need a bit more review. The strategy is to push kuid_t and kgid_t values are far down into subsystems and filesystems as reasonable. Leaving the make_kuid and from_kuid operations to happen at the edge of userspace, as the values come off the disk, and as the values come in from the network. Letting compile type incompatible compile errors (present when user namespaces are enabled) guide me to find the issues. The most tricky areas have been the places where we had an implicit union of uid and gid values and were storing them in an unsigned int. Those places were converted into explicit unions. I made certain to handle those places with simple trivial patches. Out of that work I discovered we have generic interfaces for storing quota by projid. I had never heard of the project identifiers before. Adding full user namespace support for project identifiers accounts for most of the code size growth in my git tree. Ultimately there will be work to relax privlige checks from "capable(FOO)" to "ns_capable(user_ns, FOO)" where it is safe allowing root in a user names to do those things that today we only forbid to non-root users because it will confuse suid root applications. While I was pushing kuid_t and kgid_t changes deep into the audit code I made a few other cleanups. I capitalized on the fact we process netlink messages in the context of the message sender. I removed usage of NETLINK_CRED, and started directly using current->tty. Some of these patches have also made it into maintainer trees, with no problems from identical code from different trees showing up in linux-next.

2012-09-29efi: Fix the ACPI BGRT driver for images located in EFI boot services memoryJosh Triplett
The ACPI BGRT driver accesses the BIOS logo image when it initializes. However, ACPI 5.0 (which introduces the BGRT) recommends putting the logo image in EFI boot services memory, so that the OS can reclaim that memory. Production systems follow this recommendation, breaking the ACPI BGRT driver. Move the bulk of the BGRT code to run during a new EFI late initialization phase, which occurs after switching EFI to virtual mode, and after initializing ACPI, but before freeing boot services memory. Copy the BIOS logo image to kernel memory at that point, and make it accessible to the BGRT driver. Rework the existing ACPI BGRT driver to act as a simple wrapper exposing that image (and the properties from the BGRT) via sysfs.

2012-09-26rcu: Settle config for userspace extended quiescent stateFrederic Weisbecker
Create a new config option under the RCU menu that put CPUs under RCU extended quiescent state (as in dynticks idle mode) when they run in userspace. This require some contribution from architectures to hook into kernel and userspace boundaries.

2012-09-25cputime: Make finegrained irqtime accounting generally availableFrederic Weisbecker
There is no known reason for this option to be unavailable on other archs than x86. They just need to call enable_sched_clock_irqtime() if they have a sufficiently finegrained clock to make it working. Move it to the general option and let the user choose between it and pure tick based or virtual cputime accounting. Note that virtual cputime accounting already performs a finegrained irqtime accounting. CONFIG_IRQ_TIME_ACCOUNTING is a kind of middle ground between tick and virtual based accounting. So CONFIG_IRQ_TIME_ACCOUNTING and CONFIG_VIRT_CPU_ACCOUNTING are mutually exclusive choices.
