2013-03-09proc: Use nd_jump_link in proc_ns_follow_linkEric W. Biederman
Update proc_ns_follow_link to use nd_jump_link instead of just manually updating nd.path.dentry. This fixes the BUG_ON(nd->inode != parent->d_inode) reported by Dave Jones and reproduced trivially with mkdir /proc/self/ns/uts/a. Sigh it looks like the VFS change to require use of nd_jump_link happend while proc_ns_follow_link was baking and since the common case of proc_ns_follow_link continued to work without problems the need for making this change was overlooked.

2012-11-20proc: Usable inode numbers for the namespace file descriptors.Eric W. Biederman
Assign a unique proc inode to each namespace, and use that inode number to ensure we only allocate at most one proc inode for every namespace in proc. A single proc inode per namespace allows userspace to test to see if two processes are in the same namespace. This has been a long requested feature and only blocked because a naive implementation would put the id in a global space and would ultimately require having a namespace for the names of namespaces, making migration and certain virtualization tricks impossible. We still don't have per superblock inode numbers for proc, which appears necessary for application unaware checkpoint/restart and migrations (if the application is using namespace file descriptors) but that is now allowd by the design if it becomes important. I have preallocated the ipc and uts initial proc inode numbers so their structures can be statically initialized. Signed-off-by: Eric W. Biederman <ebiederm@xmission.com>
2012-11-20proc: Fix the namespace inode permission checks.Eric W. Biederman
Change the proc namespace files into symlinks so that we won't cache the dentries for the namespace files which can bypass the ptrace_may_access checks. To support the symlinks create an additional namespace inode with it's own set of operations distinct from the proc pid inode and dentry methods as those no longer make sense. Signed-off-by: Eric W.

2012-11-19vfs: Add setns support for the mount namespaceEric W. Biederman
setns support for the mount namespace is a little tricky as an arbitrary decision must be made about what to set fs->root and fs->pwd to, as there is no expectation of a relationship between the two mount namespaces. Therefore I arbitrarily find the root mount point, and follow every mount on top of it to find the top of the mount stack. Then I set fs->root and fs->pwd to that location. The topmost root of the mount stack seems like a reasonable place to be. Bind mount support for the mount namespace inodes has the possibility of creating circular dependencies between mount namespaces. Circular dependencies can result in loops that prevent mount namespaces from every being freed. I avoid creating those circular dependencies by adding a sequence number to the mount namespace and require all bind mounts be of a younger mount namespace into an older mount namespace. Add a helper function proc_ns_inode so it is possible to detect when we are attempting to bind mound a namespace inode. Acked-by: Serge Hallyn <serge.hallyn@canonical.com> Signed-off-by: Eric W.

2012-11-19pidns: Add setns supportEric W. Biederman
- Pid namespaces are designed to be inescapable so verify that the passed in pid namespace is a child of the currently active pid namespace or the currently active pid namespace itself. Allowing the currently active pid namespace is important so the effects of an earlier setns can be cancelled. Signed-off-by: Eric W. Biederman <ebiederm@xmission.com>

Just the flags; only NFS cares even about that, but there are legitimate uses for such argument. And getting rid of that completely would require splitting ->lookup() into a couple of methods (at least), so let's leave that alone for now... Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>

2012-03-23proc-ns: use d_set_d_op() API to set dentry ops in proc_ns_instantiate().Pravin B Shelar
The namespace cleanup path leaks a dentry which holds a reference count on a network namespace. Keeping that network namespace from being freed when the last user goes away. Leaving things like vlan devices in the leaked network namespace. If you use ip netns add for much real work this problem becomes apparent pretty quickly. It light testing the problem hides because frequently you simply don't notice the leak. Use d_set_d_op() so that DCACHE_OP_* flags are set correctly. This issue exists back to 3.0. Acked-by: "Eric W.

Don't call iput with the inode half setup to be a namespace filedescriptor. Instead rearrange the code so that we don't initialize ei->ns_ops until after I ns_ops->get succeeds, preventing us from invoking ns_ops->put when ns_ops->get failed.

2011-05-10ns: proc files for namespace naming policy.Eric W. Biederman
Create files under /proc/<pid>/ns/ to allow controlling the namespaces of a process. This addresses three specific problems that can make namespaces hard to work with. - Namespaces require a dedicated process to pin them in memory. - It is not possible to use a namespace unless you are the child of the original creator. - Namespaces don't have names that userspace can use to talk about them. The namespace files under /proc/<pid>/ns/ can be opened and the file descriptor can be used to talk about a specific namespace, and to keep the specified namespace alive. A namespace can be kept alive by either holding the file descriptor open or bind mounting the file someplace else. aka: mount --bind /proc/self/ns/net /some/filesystem/path mount --bind /proc/self/fd/<N> /some/filesystem/path This allows namespaces to be named with userspace policy. It requires additional support to make use of these filedescriptors and that will be comming in the following patches. Acked-by: Daniel Lezcano <daniel.lezcano@free.fr> Signed-off-by: Eric W.
