selinux: fix variable scope issue in live sidtab conversion
Commit 02a52c5c8c3b ("selinux: move policy commit after updating selinuxfs") moved the selinux_policy_commit() call out of security_load_policy() into sel_write_load(), which caused a subtle yet rather serious bug. The problem is that security_load_policy() passes a reference to the convert_params local variable to sidtab_convert(), which stores it in the sidtab, where it may be accessed until the policy is swapped over and RCU synchronized. Before 02a52c5c8c3b, selinux_policy_commit() was called directly from security_load_policy(), so the convert_params pointer remained valid all the way until the old sidtab was destroyed, but now that's no longer the case and calls to sidtab_context_to_sid() on the old sidtab after security_load_policy() returns may cause invalid memory accesses. This can be easily triggered using the stress test from commit ee1a84fdfeed ("selinux: overhaul sidtab to fix bug and improve performance"): ``` function rand_cat() { echo $(( $RANDOM % 1024 )) } function do_work() { while true; do echo -n "system_u:system_r:kernel_t:s0:c$(rand_cat),c$(rand_cat)" \ >/sys/fs/selinux/context 2>/dev/null || true done } do_work >/dev/null & do_work >/dev/null & do_work >/dev/null & while load_policy; do echo -n .; sleep 0.1; done kill %1 kill %2 kill %3 ``` Fix this by allocating the temporary sidtab convert structures dynamically and passing them among the selinux_policy_{load,cancel,commit} functions.
