2010-08-09sys_personality: remove the bogus checks in ↵Oleg Nesterov1-17/+5
sys_personality()->__set_personality() path Cleanup, no functional changes. - __set_personality() always changes ->exec_domain/personality, the special case when ->exec_domain remains the same buys nothing but complicates the code. Unify both cases to simplify the code. - The -EINVAL check in sys_personality() was never right. If we assume that set_personality() can fail we should check the value it returns instead of verifying that task->personality was actually changed. Remove it. Before the previous patch it was possible to hit this case due to overflow problems, but this -EINVAL just indicated the kernel bug. OTOH, probably it makes sense to change lookup_exec_domain() to return ERR_PTR() instead of default_exec_domain if the search in exec_domains list fails, and report this error to the user-space. But this means another user-space change, and we have in-kernel users which need fixes. For example, PER_OSF4 falls into PER_MASK for unkown reason and nobody cares to register this domain.

2010-06-04sys_personality: change sys_personality() to accept "unsigned int" instead ↵Oleg Nesterov1-9/+9
of u_long task_struct->pesonality is "unsigned int", but sys_personality() paths use "unsigned long pesonality". This means that every assignment or comparison is not right. In particular, if this argument does not fit into "unsigned int" __set_personality() changes the caller's personality and then sys_personality() returns -EINVAL. Turn this argument into "unsigned int" and avoid overflows. Obviously, this is the user-visible change, we just ignore the upper bits. But this can't break the sane application. There is another thing which can confuse the poorly written applications. User-space thinks that this syscall returns int, not long. This means that the returned value can be negative and look like the error code. But note that libc won't be confused and thus errno won't be set, and with this patch the user-space can never get -1 unless sys_personality() really fails. And, most importantly, the negative RET != -1 is only possible if that app previously called personality(RET).

2009-03-31Get rid of indirect include of fs_struct.hAl Viro1-0/+1
Don't pull it in sched.h; very few files actually need it and those can include directly. sched.h itself only needs forward declaration of struct fs_struct; Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>

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!
