This patch converts casts of struct kern_ipc_perm to . struct msg_queue . struct sem_array . struct shmid_kernel into the equivalent container_of() macro. It improves code maintenance because the code need not change if kern_ipc_perm is no longer at the beginning of the containing struct.

2007-10-19ipc: store ipcs into IDRsNadia Derbey
This patch introduces ipcs storage into IDRs. The main changes are: . This ipc_ids structure is changed: the entries array is changed into a root idr structure. . The grow_ary() routine is removed: it is not needed anymore when adding an ipc structure, since we are now using the IDR facility. . The ipc_rmid() routine interface is changed: . there is no need for this routine to return the pointer passed in as argument: it is now declared as a void . since the id is now part of the kern_ipc_perm structure, no need to have it as an argument to the routine Signed-off-by: Nadia Derbey <Nadia.Derbey@bull.net> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
2007-10-19pid namespaces: changes to show virtual ids to userPavel Emelyanov
This is the largest patch in the set. Make all (I hope) the places where the pid is shown to or get from user operate on the virtual pids. The idea is: - all in-kernel data structures must store either struct pid itself or the pid's global nr, obtained with pid_nr() call; - when seeking the task from kernel code with the stored id one should use find_task_by_pid() call that works with global pids; - when showing pid's numerical value to the user the virtual one should be used, but however when one shows task's pid outside this task's namespace the global one is to be used; - when getting the pid from userspace one need to consider this as the virtual one and use appropriate task/pid-searching functions.

2007-10-17r/o bind mounts: filesystem helpers for custom 'struct file'sDave Hansen
Why do we need r/o bind mounts? This feature allows a read-only view into a read-write filesystem. In the process of doing that, it also provides infrastructure for keeping track of the number of writers to any given mount. This has a number of uses. It allows chroots to have parts of filesystems writable. It will be useful for containers in the future because users may have root inside a container, but should not be allowed to write to somefilesystems. This also replaces patches that vserver has had out of the tree for several years. It allows security enhancement by making sure that parts of your filesystem read-only (such as when you don't trust your FTP server), when you don't want to have entire new filesystems mounted, or when you want atime selectively updated. I've been using the following script to test that the feature is working as desired. It takes a directory and makes a regular bind and a r/o bind mount of it. It then performs some normal filesystem operations on the three directories, including ones that are expected to fail, like creating a file on the r/o mount. This patch: Some filesystems forego the vfs and may_open() and create their own 'struct file's. This patch creates a couple of helper functions which can be used by these filesystems, and will provide a unified place which the r/o bind mount code may patch. Also, rename an existing, static-scope init_file() to a less generic name.

2007-07-31Fix user struct leakage with locked IPC shem segmentPavel Emelianov
When user locks an ipc shmem segmant with SHM_LOCK ctl and the segment is already locked the shmem_lock() function returns 0. After this the subsequent code leaks the existing user struct: == ipc/shm.c: sys_shmctl() == ... err = shmem_lock(shp->shm_file, 1, user); if (!err) { shp->shm_perm.mode |= SHM_LOCKED; shp->mlock_user = user; } ... == Other results of this are: 1. the new shp->mlock_user is not get-ed and will point to freed memory when the task dies. 2. the RLIMIT_MEMLOCK is screwed on both user structs. The exploit looks like this: == id = shmget(...); setresuid(uid, 0, 0); shmctl(id, SHM_LOCK, NULL); setresuid(uid + 1, 0, 0); shmctl(id, SHM_LOCK, NULL); == My solution is to return 0 to the userspace and do not change the segment's user.

Slab destructors were no longer supported after Christoph's c59def9f222d44bb7e2f0a559f2906191a0862d7 change. They've been BUGs for both slab and slub, and slob never supported them either.

2007-07-19mm: fault feedback #1Nick Piggin
Change ->fault prototype. We now return an int, which contains VM_FAULT_xxx code in the low byte, and FAULT_RET_xxx code in the next byte. FAULT_RET_ code tells the VM whether a page was found, whether it has been locked, and potentially other things. This is not quite the way he wanted it yet, but that's changed in the next patch (which requires changes to arch code). This means we no longer set VM_CAN_INVALIDATE in the vma in order to say that a page is locked which requires filemap_nopage to go away (because we can no longer remain backward compatible without that flag), but we were going to do that anyway. struct fault_data is renamed to struct vm_fault as Linus asked. address is now a void __user * that we should firmly encourage drivers not to use without really good reason. The page is now returned via a page pointer in the vm_fault struct.

2007-07-19mm: merge populate and nopage into fault (fixes nonlinear)Nick Piggin
Nonlinear mappings are (AFAIKS) simply a virtual memory concept that encodes the virtual address -> file offset differently from linear mappings. ->populate is a layering violation because the filesystem/pagecache code should need to know anything about the virtual memory mapping. The hitch here is that the ->nopage handler didn't pass down enough information (ie. pgoff). But it is more logical to pass pgoff rather than have the ->nopage function calculate it itself anyway (because that's a similar layering violation). Having the populate handler install the pte itself is likewise a nasty thing to be doing. This patch introduces a new fault handler that replaces ->nopage and ->populate and (later) ->nopfn. Most of the old mechanism is still in place so there is a lot of duplication and nice cleanups that can be removed if everyone switches over. The rationale for doing this in the first place is that nonlinear mappings are subject to the pagefault vs invalidate/truncate race too, and it seemed stupid to duplicate the synchronisation logic rather than just consolidate the two. After this patch, MAP_NONBLOCK no longer sets up ptes for pages present in pagecache. Seems like a fringe functionality anyway. NOPAGE_REFAULT is removed. This should be implemented with ->fault, and no users have hit mainline yet.

2007-06-16shm: fix the filename of hugetlb sysv shared memoryEric W. Biederman
Some user space tools need to identify SYSV shared memory when examining /proc/<pid>/maps. To do so they look for a block device with major zero, a dentry named SYSV<sysv key>, and having the minor of the internal sysv shared memory kernel mount. To help these tools and to make it easier for people just browsing /proc/<pid>/maps this patch modifies hugetlb sysv shared memory to use the SYSV<key> dentry naming convention. User space tools will still have to be aware that hugetlb sysv shared memory lives on a different internal kernel mount and so has a different block device minor number from the rest of sysv shared memory.

2007-06-16hugetlb: fix get_policy for stacked shared memory filesAdam Litke
Here's another breakage as a result of shared memory stacked files :( The NUMA policy for a VMA is determined by checking the following (in the order given): 1) vma->vm_ops->get_policy() (if defined) 2) vma->vm_policy (if defined) 3) task->mempolicy (if defined) 4) Fall back to default_policy By switching to stacked files for shared memory, get_policy() is now always set to shm_get_policy which is a wrapper function. This causes us to stop at step 1, which yields NULL for hugetlb instead of task->mempolicy which was the previous (and correct) result. This patch modifies the shm_get_policy() wrapper to maintain steps 1-3 for the wrapped vm_ops.

2007-05-07slab allocators: Remove SLAB_DEBUG_INITIAL flagChristoph Lameter
I have never seen a use of SLAB_DEBUG_INITIAL. It is only supported by SLAB. I think its purpose was to have a callback after an object has been freed to verify that the state is the constructor state again? The callback is performed before each freeing of an object. I would think that it is much easier to check the object state manually before the free. That also places the check near the code object manipulation of the object. Also the SLAB_DEBUG_INITIAL callback is only performed if the kernel was compiled with SLAB debugging on. If there would be code in a constructor handling SLAB_DEBUG_INITIAL then it would have to be conditional on SLAB_DEBUG otherwise it would just be dead code. But there is no such code in the kernel. I think SLUB_DEBUG_INITIAL is too problematic to make real use of, difficult to understand and there are easier ways to accomplish the same effect (i.e. add debug code before kfree). There is a related flag SLAB_CTOR_VERIFY that is frequently checked to be clear in fs inode caches. Remove the pointless checks (they would even be pointless without removeal of SLAB_DEBUG_INITIAL) from the fs constructors. This is the last slab flag that SLUB did not support. Remove the check for unimplemented flags from SLUB.

2007-03-01[PATCH] Fix get_unmapped_area and fsync for hugetlb shm segmentsAdam Litke
This patch provides the following hugetlb-related fixes to the recent stacked shm files changes: - Update is_file_hugepages() so it will reconize hugetlb shm segments. - get_unmapped_area must be called with the nested file struct to handle the sfd->file->f_ops->get_unmapped_area == NULL case. - The fsync f_op must be wrapped since it is specified in the hugetlbfs f_ops. This is based on proposed fixes from Eric Biederman that were debugged and tested by me. Without it, attempting to use hugetlb shared memory segments on powerpc (and likely ia64) will kill your box.

2007-02-20[PATCH] shm: make sysv ipc shared memory use stacked filesEric W. Biederman
The current ipc shared memory code runs into several problems because it does not quite use files like the rest of the kernel. With the option of backing ipc shared memory with either hugetlbfs or ordinary shared memory the problems got worse. With the added support for ipc namespaces things behaved so unexpected that we now have several bad namespace reference counting bugs when using what appears at first glance to be a reasonable idiom. So to attack these problems and hopefully make the code more maintainable this patch simply uses the files provided by other parts of the kernel and builds it's own files out of them. The shm files are allocated in do_shmat and freed when their reference count drops to zero with their last unmap. The file and vm operations that we don't want to implement or we don't implement completely we just delegate to the operations of our backing file. This means that we now get an accurate shm_nattch count for we have a hugetlbfs inode for backing store, and the shm accounting of last attach and last detach time work as well. This means that getting a reference to the ipc namespace when we create the file and dropping the referenece in the release method is now safe and correct. This means we no longer need a special case for clearing VM_MAYWRITE as our file descriptor now only has write permissions when we have requested write access when calling shmat. Although VM_SHARED is now cleared as well which I believe is harmless and is mostly likely a minor bug fix. By using the same set of operations for both the hugetlb case and regular shared memory case shmdt is not simplified and made slightly more correct as now the test "vma->vm_ops == &shm_vm_ops" is 100% accurate in spotting all shared memory regions generated from sysvipc shared memory.

2007-02-14[PATCH] sysctl: remove insert_at_head from register_sysctlEric W. Biederman
The semantic effect of insert_at_head is that it would allow new registered sysctl entries to override existing sysctl entries of the same name. Which is pain for caching and the proc interface never implemented. I have done an audit and discovered that none of the current users of register_sysctl care as (excpet for directories) they do not register duplicate sysctl entries. So this patch simply removes the support for overriding existing entries in the sys_sysctl interface since no one uses it or cares and it makes future enhancments harder. Signed-off-by: Eric W.

2007-02-14[PATCH] sysctl: move SYSV IPC sysctls to their own fileEric W. Biederman
This is just a simple cleanup to keep kernel/sysctl.c from getting to crowded with special cases, and by keeping all of the ipc logic to together it makes the code a little more readable.

2007-02-12[PATCH] mark struct inode_operations const 2Arjan van de Ven
Many struct inode_operations in the kernel can be "const". Marking them const moves these to the .rodata section, which avoids false sharing with potential dirty data. In addition it'll catch accidental writes at compile time to these shared resources.

2007-02-12[PATCH] ipc: save the ipc namespace while reading proc filesEric W. Biederman
The problem we were assuming that current->nsproxy->ipc_ns would never change while someone has our file in /proc/sysvipc/ file open. Given that this can change with both unshare and by passing the file descriptor to another process that assumption is occasionally wrong. Therefore this patch causes /proc/sysvipc/* to cache the namespace and increment it's count when we open the file and to decrement the count when we close the file, ensuring consistent operation with no surprises.

2006-12-07[PATCH] Fix the size limit of compat space msgsizesuzuki
Currently we allocate 64k space on the user stack and use it the msgbuf for sys_{msgrcv,msgsnd} for compat and the results are later copied in user [ by copy_in_user]. This patch introduces helper routines for sys_{msgrcv,msgsnd} as below: do_msgsnd() : Accepts the mtype and user space ptr to the buffer along with the msqid and msgflg. do_msgrcv() : Accepts a kernel space ptr to mtype and a userspace ptr to the buffer. The mtype has to be copied back the user space msgbuf by the caller. These changes avoid the need to allocate the msgsize on the userspace ( thus removing the size limt ) and the overhead of an extra copy_in_user().
