2010-11-15capabilities/syslog: open code cap_syslog logic to fix build failureEric Paris1-1/+14
The addition of CONFIG_SECURITY_DMESG_RESTRICT resulted in a build failure when CONFIG_PRINTK=n. This is because the capabilities code which used the new option was built even though the variable in question didn't exist. The patch here fixes this by moving the capabilities checks out of the LSM and into the caller. All (known) LSMs should have been calling the capabilities hook already so it actually makes the code organization better to eliminate the hook altogether.

2010-11-12Restrict unprivileged access to kernel syslogDan Rosenberg2-0/+15
The kernel syslog contains debugging information that is often useful during exploitation of other vulnerabilities, such as kernel heap addresses. Rather than futilely attempt to sanitize hundreds (or thousands) of printk statements and simultaneously cripple useful debugging functionality, it is far simpler to create an option that prevents unprivileged users from reading the syslog. This patch, loosely based on grsecurity's GRKERNSEC_DMESG, creates the dmesg_restrict sysctl. When set to "0", the default, no restrictions are enforced. When set to "1", only users with CAP_SYS_ADMIN can read the kernel syslog via dmesg(8) or other mechanisms.

2010-11-12kernel/range.c: fix clean_sort_range() for the case of full arrayAlexey Khoroshilov1-1/+1
clean_sort_range() should return a number of nonempty elements of range array, but if the array is full clean_sort_range() returns 0. The problem is that the number of nonempty elements is evaluated by finding the first empty element of the array. If there is no such element it returns an initial value of local variable nr_range that is zero. The fix is trivial: it changes initial value of nr_range to size of the array. The bug can lead to loss of information regarding all ranges, since typically returned value of clean_sort_range() is considered as an actual number of ranges in the array after a series of add/subtract operations.

2010-11-10perf_events: Fix time tracking in samplesStephane Eranian1-8/+34
This patch corrects time tracking in samples. Without this patch both time_enabled and time_running are bogus when user asks for PERF_SAMPLE_READ. One uses PERF_SAMPLE_READ to sample the values of other counters in each sample. Because of multiplexing, it is necessary to know both time_enabled, time_running to be able to scale counts correctly. In this second version of the patch, we maintain a shadow copy of ctx->time which allows us to compute ctx->time without calling update_context_time() from NMI context. We avoid the issue that update_context_time() must always be called with ctx->lock held. We do not keep shadow copies of the other event timings because if the lead event is overflowing then it is active and thus it's been scheduled in via event_sched_in() in which case neither tstamp_stopped, tstamp_running can be modified. This timing logic only applies to samples when PERF_SAMPLE_READ is used. Note that this patch does not address timing issues related to sampling inheritance between tasks. This will be addressed in a future patch. With this patch, the libpfm4 example task_smpl now reports correct counts (shown on 2.4GHz Core 2): $ task_smpl -p 2400000000 -e unhalted_core_cycles:u,instructions_retired:u,baclears noploop 5 noploop for 5 seconds IIP:0x000000004006d6 PID:5596 TID:5596 TIME:466,210,211,430 STREAM_ID:33 PERIOD:2,400,000,000 ENA=1,010,157,814 RUN=1,010,157,814 NR=3 2,400,000,254 unhalted_core_cycles:u (33) 2,399,273,744 instructions_retired:u (34) 53,340 baclears (35) Signed-off-by: Stephane Eranian <eranian@google.com> Signed-off-by: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl> LKML-Reference: <4cc6e14b.1e07e30a.256e.5190@mx.google.com> Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>

2010-11-05posix-cpu-timers: workaround to suppress the problems with mt execOleg Nesterov1-0/+8
posix-cpu-timers.c correctly assumes that the dying process does posix_cpu_timers_exit_group() and removes all !CPUCLOCK_PERTHREAD timers from signal->cpu_timers list. But, it also assumes that timer->it.cpu.task is always the group leader, and thus the dead ->task means the dead thread group. This is obviously not true after de_thread() changes the leader. After that almost every posix_cpu_timer_ method has problems. It is not simple to fix this bug correctly. First of all, I think that timer->it.cpu should use struct pid instead of task_struct. Also, the locking should be reworked completely. In particular, tasklist_lock should not be used at all. This all needs a lot of nontrivial and hard-to-test changes. Change __exit_signal() to do posix_cpu_timers_exit_group() when the old leader dies during exec. This is not the fix, just the temporary hack to hide the problem for 2.6.37 and stable. IOW, this is obviously wrong but this is what we currently have anyway: cpu timers do not work after mt exec. In theory this change adds another race. The exiting leader can detach the timers which were attached to the new leader. However, the window between de_thread() and release_task() is small, we can pretend that sys_timer_create() was called before de_thread().

2010-10-28jump label: Fix module __init section raceJason Baron1-1/+40
Jump label uses is_module_text_address() to ensure that the module __init sections are valid before updating them. However, between the check for a valid module __init section and the subsequent jump label update, the module's __init section could be freed out from under us. We fix this potential race by adding a notifier callback to the MODULE_STATE_LIVE state. This notifier is called *after* the __init section has been run but before it is going to be freed. In the callback, the jump label code zeros the key value for any __init jump code within the module, and we add a check for a non-zero key value when we update jump labels. In this way we require no additional data structures. Thanks to Mathieu Desnoyers for pointing out this race condition.

2010-10-27taskstats: use real microsecond granularity for CPU timesMichael Holzheu1-6/+4
The taskstats interface uses microsecond granularity for the user and system time values. The conversion from cputime to the taskstats values uses the cputime_to_msecs primitive which effectively limits the granularity to milliseconds. Add the cputime_to_usecs primitive for architectures that have better, more precise CPU time values. Remove cputime_to_msecs primitive because there are no more users left.

2010-10-27delayacct: align to 8 byte boundary on 64-bit systemsJeff Mahoney1-1/+7
prepare_reply() sets up an skb for the response. The payload contains: +--------------------------------+ | genlmsghdr - 4 bytes | +--------------------------------+ | NLA header - 4 bytes | /* Aggregate header */ +-+------------------------------+ | | NLA header - 4 bytes | /* PID header */ | +------------------------------+ | | pid/tgid - 4 bytes | | +------------------------------+ | | NLA header - 4 bytes | /* stats header */ | + -----------------------------+ <- oops. aligned on 4 byte boundary | | struct taskstats - 328 bytes | +-+------------------------------+ The start of the taskstats struct must be 8 byte aligned on IA64 (and other systems with 8 byte alignment rules for 64-bit types) or runtime alignment warnings will be issued. This patch pads the pid/tgid field out to sizeof(long), which forces the alignment of taskstats. The getdelays userspace code is ok with this since it assumes 32-bit pid/tgid and then honors that header's length field. An array is used to avoid exposing kernel memory contents to userspace in the response.

2010-10-27/proc/stat: fix scalability of irq sum of all cpuKAMEZAWA Hiroyuki1-0/+15
In /proc/stat, the number of per-IRQ event is shown by making a sum each irq's events on all cpus. But we can make use of kstat_irqs(). kstat_irqs() do the same calculation, If !CONFIG_GENERIC_HARDIRQ, it's not a big cost. (Both of the number of cpus and irqs are small.) If a system is very big and CONFIG_GENERIC_HARDIRQ, it does for_each_irq() for_each_cpu() - look up a radix tree - read desc->irq_stat[cpu] This seems not efficient. This patch adds kstat_irqs() for CONFIG_GENRIC_HARDIRQ and change the calculation as for_each_irq() look up radix tree for_each_cpu() - read desc->irq_stat[cpu] This reduces cost.

2010-10-27ptrace: change signature of sys_ptrace() and friendsNamhyung Kim1-6/+10
Since userspace API of ptrace syscall defines @addr and @data as void pointers, it would be more appropriate to define them as unsigned long in kernel. Therefore related functions are changed also. 'unsigned long' is typically used in other places in kernel as an opaque data type and that using this helps cleaning up a lot of warnings from sparse.
