namespace owner - Allow anyone with CAP_NET_ADMIN rights in the user namespace of the the netowrk namespace to change sysctls. - Allow anyone the uid of the user namespace root the same permissions over the network namespace sysctls as the global root. - Allow anyone with gid of the user namespace root group the same permissions over the network namespace sysctl as the global root group.

2012-11-18sysctl: Pass useful parameters to sysctl permissionsEric W. Biederman1-2/+1
- Current is implicitly avaiable so passing current->nsproxy isn't useful. - The ctl_table_header is needed to find how the sysctl table is connected to the rest of sysctl. - ctl_table_root is avaiable in the ctl_table_header so no need to it. With these changes it becomes possible to write a version of net_sysctl_permission that takes into account the network namespace of the sysctl table, an important feature in extending the user namespace.

2012-05-15net: delete all instances of special processing for token ringPaul Gortmaker1-4/+0
We are going to delete the Token ring support. This removes any special processing in the core networking for token ring, (aside from net/tr.c itself), leaving the drivers and remaining tokenring support present but inert. The mass removal of the drivers and net/tr.c will be in a separate commit, so that the history of these files that we still care about won't have the giant deletion tied into their history.

2012-04-20net: Kill register_sysctl_rotableEric W. Biederman1-23/+0
register_sysctl_rotable never caught on as an interesting way to register sysctls. My take on the situation is that what we want are sysctls that we can only see in the initial network namespace. What we have implemented with register_sysctl_rotable are sysctls that we can see in all of the network namespaces and can only change in the initial network namespace. That is a very silly way to go. Just register the network sysctls in the initial network namespace and we don't have any weird special cases to deal with. The sysctls affected are: /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ipfrag_secret_interval /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ipfrag_max_dist /proc/sys/net/ipv6/ip6frag_secret_interval /proc/sys/net/ipv6/mld_max_msf I really don't expect anyone will miss them if they can't read them in a child user namespace.

2012-04-20net sysctl: Initialize the network sysctls sooner to avoid problems.Eric W. Biederman1-2/+1
If the netfilter code is modified to use register_net_sysctl_table the kernel fails to boot because the per net sysctl infrasturce is not setup soon enough.

2012-04-20net sysctl: Register an empty /proc/sys/netEric W. Biederman1-1/+10
Implementation limitations of the sysctl core won't let /proc/sys/net reside in a network namespace. /proc/sys/net at least must be registered as a normal sysctl. So register /proc/sys/net early as an empty directory to guarantee we don't violate this constraint and hit bugs in the sysctl implementation. Signed-off-by: Eric W.

2012-04-20net: Implement register_net_sysctl.Eric W. Biederman1-0/+7
Right now all of the networking sysctl registrations are running in a compatibiity mode. The natvie sysctl registration api takes a cstring for a path and a simple ctl_table. Implement register_net_sysctl so that we can register network sysctls without needing to use compatiblity code in the sysctl core. Switching from a ctl_path to a cstring results in less boiler plate and denser code that is a little easier to read. I would simply have changed the arguments to register_net_sysctl_table instead of keeping two functions in parallel but gcc will allow a ctl_path pointer to be passed to a char * pointer with only issuing a warning resulting in completely incorrect code can be built. Since I have to change the function name I am taking advantage of the situation to let both register_net_sysctl and register_net_sysctl_table live for a short time in parallel which makes clean conversion patches a bit easier to read and write.

2012-01-24sysctl: Remove the unnecessary sysctl_set parent concept.Eric W. Biederman1-3/+2

2012-01-24sysctl: Register the base sysctl table like any other sysctl table.Eric W. Biederman1-2/+2
Simplify the code by treating the base sysctl table like any other sysctl table and register it with register_sysctl_table. To ensure this table is registered early enough to avoid problems call sysctl_init from proc_sys_init. Rename sysctl_net.c:sysctl_init() to net_sysctl_init() to avoid name conflicts now that kernel/sysctl.c:sysctl_init() is no longer static. Signed-off-by: Eric W. Biederman <ebiederm@xmission.com>

2008-07-27missing bits of net-namespace / sysctlAl Viro1-1/+3
Piss-poor sysctl registration API strikes again, film at 11... What we really need is _pathname_ required to be present in already registered table, so that kernel could warn about bad order. That's the next target for sysctl stuff (and generally saner and more explicit order of initialization of ipv[46] internals wouldn't hurt either). For the time being, here are full fixups required by ..._rotable() stuff; we make per-net sysctl sets descendents of "ro" one and make sure that sufficient skeleton is there before we start registering per-net sysctls.

2008-07-26[PATCH] beginning of sysctl cleanup - ctl_table_setAl Viro1-12/+10
New object: set of sysctls [currently - root and per-net-ns]. Contains: pointer to parent set, list of tables and "should I see this set?" method (->is_seen(set)). Current lists of tables are subsumed by that; net-ns contains such a beast. ->lookup() for ctl_table_root returns pointer to ctl_table_set instead of that to ->list of that ctl_table_set.

2008-07-25sysctl: allow override of /proc/sys/net with CAP_NET_ADMINStephen Hemminger1-0/+14
Extend the permission check for networking sysctl's to allow modification when current process has CAP_NET_ADMIN capability and is not root. This version uses the until now unused permissions hook to override the mode value for /proc/sys/net if accessed by a user with capabilities. Found while working with Quagga. It is impossible to turn forwarding on/off through the command interface because Quagga uses secure coding practice of dropping privledges during initialization and only raising via capabilities when necessary. Since the dameon has reset real/effective uid after initialization, all attempts to access /proc/sys/net variables will fail.

2008-01-28[TR]: Use ctl paths to register net/token-ring/ tablePavel Emelyanov1-8/+0
The same thing for token-ring - use ctl paths and get rid of external references on the tr_table. Unfortunately, I couldn't split this patch into cleanup and use-the-paths parts. As a lame excuse I can say, that the cleanup is just moving the tr_table from one file to another - closet to a single variable, that this ctl table tunes. Since the source file becomes empty after the move, I remove it. Signed-off-by: Pavel Emelyanov <xemul@openvz.org> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>

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!
