2013-03-20connector: Added coredumping event to the process connectorJesper Derehag1-0/+25
Process connector can now also detect coredumping events. Main aim of patch is get notified at start of coredumping, instead of having to wait for it to finish and then being notified through EXIT event. Could be used for instance by process-managers that want to get notified as soon as possible about process failures, and not necessarily beeing notified after coredump, which could be in the order of minutes depending on size of coredump, piping and so on.

CONFIG_HOTPLUG is going away as an option. As a result, the __dev* markings need to be removed. This change removes the use of __devinit, __devexit_p, __devinitdata, __devinitconst, and __devexit from these drivers.

Pull networking changes from David Miller: 1) GRE now works over ipv6, from Dmitry Kozlov. 2) Make SCTP more network namespace aware, from Eric Biederman. 3) TEAM driver now works with non-ethernet devices, from Jiri Pirko. 4) Make openvswitch network namespace aware, from Pravin B Shelar. 5) IPV6 NAT implementation, from Patrick McHardy. 6) Server side support for TCP Fast Open, from Jerry Chu and others. 7) Packet BPF filter supports MOD and XOR, from Eric Dumazet and Daniel Borkmann. 8) Increate the loopback default MTU to 64K, from Eric Dumazet. 9) Use a per-task rather than per-socket page fragment allocator for outgoing networking traffic. This benefits processes that have very many mostly idle sockets, which is quite common. From Eric Dumazet. 10) Use up to 32K for page fragment allocations, with fallbacks to smaller sizes when higher order page allocations fail. Benefits are a) less segments for driver to process b) less calls to page allocator c) less waste of space. From Eric Dumazet. 11) Allow GRO to be used on GRE tunnels, from Eric Dumazet. 12) VXLAN device driver, one way to handle VLAN issues such as the limitation of 4096 VLAN IDs yet still have some level of isolation. From Stephen Hemminger. 13) As usual there is a large boatload of driver changes, with the scale perhaps tilted towards the wireless side this time around.

This patch adds the following structure: struct netlink_kernel_cfg { unsigned int groups; void (*input)(struct sk_buff *skb); struct mutex *cb_mutex; }; That can be passed to netlink_kernel_create to set optional configurations for netlink kernel sockets. I've populated this structure by looking for NULL and zero parameters at the existing code. The remaining parameters that always need to be set are still left in the original interface. That includes optional parameters for the netlink socket creation. This allows easy extensibility of this interface in the future. This patch also adapts all callers to use this new interface.

2011-09-28connector: add comm change event report to proc connectorVladimir Zapolskiy1-0/+26
Add an event to monitor comm value changes of tasks. Such an event becomes vital, if someone desires to control threads of a process in different manner. A natural characteristic of threads is its comm value, and helpfully application developers have an opportunity to change it in runtime. Reporting about such events via proc connector allows to fine-grain monitoring and control potentials, for instance a process control daemon listening to proc connector and following comm value policies can place specific threads to assigned cgroup partitions. It might be possible to achieve a pale partial one-shot likeness without this update, if an application changes comm value of a thread generator task beforehand, then a new thread is cloned, and after that proc connector listener gets the fork event and reads new thread's comm value from procfs stat file, but this change visibly simplifies and extends the matter.

2011-07-18connector: add an event for monitoring process tracersVladimir Zapolskiy1-0/+35
This change adds a procfs connector event, which is emitted on every successful process tracer attach or detach. If some process connects to other one, kernelspace connector reports process id and thread group id of both these involved processes. On disconnection null process id is returned. Such an event allows to create a simple automated userspace mechanism to be aware about processes connecting to others, therefore predefined process policies can be applied to them if needed. Note, a detach signal is emitted only in case, if a tracer process explicitly executes PTRACE_DETACH request. In other cases like tracee or tracer exit detach event from proc connector is not reported.

Commits 01a16b21 (netlink: kill eff_cap from struct netlink_skb_parms) and c53fa1ed (netlink: kill loginuid/sessionid/sid members from struct netlink_skb_parms) removed some members from struct netlink_skb_parms that depend on the current context, all netlink users are now required to do synchronous message processing. connector however queues received messages and processes them in a work queue, which is not valid anymore. This patch converts connector to do synchronous message processing by invoking the registered callback handler directly from the netlink receive function. In order to avoid invoking the callback with connector locks held, a reference count is added to struct cn_callback_entry, the reference is taken when finding a matching callback entry on the device's queue_list and released after the callback handler has been invoked.

2010-03-30include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking ↵Tejun Heo2-0/+2
implicit slab.h inclusion from percpu.h percpu.h is included by sched.h and module.h and thus ends up being included when building most .c files. percpu.h includes slab.h which in turn includes gfp.h making everything defined by the two files universally available and complicating inclusion dependencies. percpu.h -> slab.h dependency is about to be removed. Prepare for this change by updating users of gfp and slab facilities include those headers directly instead of assuming availability. As this conversion needs to touch large number of source files, the following script is used as the basis of conversion. http://userweb.kernel.org/~tj/misc/slabh-sweep.py The script does the followings. * Scan files for gfp and slab usages and update includes such that only the necessary includes are there. ie. if only gfp is used, gfp.h, if slab is used, slab.h. * When the script inserts a new include, it looks at the include blocks and try to put the new include such that its order conforms to its surrounding. It's put in the include block which contains core kernel includes, in the same order that the rest are ordered - alphabetical, Christmas tree, rev-Xmas-tree or at the end if there doesn't seem to be any matching order. * If the script can't find a place to put a new include (mostly because the file doesn't have fitting include block), it prints out an error message indicating which .h file needs to be added to the file. The conversion was done in the following steps. 1. The initial automatic conversion of all .c files updated slightly over 4000 files, deleting around 700 includes and adding ~480 gfp.h and ~3000 slab.h inclusions. The script emitted errors for ~400 files. 2. Each error was manually checked. Some didn't need the inclusion, some needed manual addition while adding it to implementation .h or embedding .c file was more appropriate for others. This step added inclusions to around 150 files. 3. The script was run again and the output was compared to the edits from #2 to make sure no file was left behind. 4. Several build tests were done and a couple of problems were fixed. e.g. lib/decompress_*.c used malloc/free() wrappers around slab APIs requiring slab.h to be added manually. 5. The script was run on all .h files but without automatically editing them as sprinkling gfp.h and slab.h inclusions around .h files could easily lead to inclusion dependency hell. Most gfp.h inclusion directives were ignored as stuff from gfp.h was usually wildly available and often used in preprocessor macros. Each slab.h inclusion directive was examined and added manually as necessary. 6. percpu.h was updated not to include slab.h. 7. Build test were done on the following configurations and failures were fixed. CONFIG_GCOV_KERNEL was turned off for all tests (as my distributed build env didn't work with gcov compiles) and a few more options had to be turned off depending on archs to make things build (like ipr on powerpc/64 which failed due to missing writeq). * x86 and x86_64 UP and SMP allmodconfig and a custom test config. * powerpc and powerpc64 SMP allmodconfig * sparc and sparc64 SMP allmodconfig * ia64 SMP allmodconfig * s390 SMP allmodconfig * alpha SMP allmodconfig * um on x86_64 SMP allmodconfig 8. percpu.h modifications were reverted so that it could be applied as a separate patch and serve as bisection point. Given the fact that I had only a couple of failures from tests on step 6, I'm fairly confident about the coverage of this conversion patch. If there is a breakage, it's likely to be something in one of the arch headers which should be easily discoverable easily on most builds of the specific arch.

2009-09-23proc connector: add event for process becoming session leaderScott James Remnant1-0/+25
The act of a process becoming a session leader is a useful signal to a supervising init daemon such as Upstart. While a daemon will normally do this as part of the process of becoming a daemon, it is rare for its children to do so. When the children do, it is nearly always a sign that the child should be considered detached from the parent and not supervised along with it. The poster-child example is OpenSSH; the per-login children call setsid() so that they may control the pty connected to them. If the primary daemon dies or is restarted, we do not want to consider the per-login children and want to respawn the primary daemon without killing the children. This patch adds a new PROC_SID_EVENT and associated structure to the proc_event event_data union, it arranges for this to be emitted when the special PIDTYPE_SID pid is set.

2009-02-02connector: create connector workqueue only while needed onceFrederic Weisbecker2-20/+79
The netlink connector uses its own workqueue to relay the datas sent from userspace to the appropriate callback. If you launch the test from Documentation/connector and change it a bit to send a high flow of data, you will see thousands of events coming to the "cqueue" workqueue by looking at the workqueue tracer. This flow of events can be sent very quickly. So, to not encumber the kevent workqueue and delay other jobs, the "cqueue" workqueue should remain. But this workqueue is pointless most of the time, it will always be created (assuming you have built it of course) although only developpers with specific needs will use it. So avoid this "most of the time useless task", this patch proposes to create this workqueue only when needed once. The first jobs to be sent to connector callbacks will be sent to kevent while the "cqueue" thread creation will be scheduled to kevent too. The following jobs will continue to be scheduled to keventd until the cqueue workqueue is created, and then the rest of the jobs will continue to perform as usual, through this dedicated workqueue. Each time I tested this patch, only the first event was sent to keventd, the rest has been sent to cqueue which have been created quickly.

2008-11-14CRED: Use RCU to access another task's creds and to release a task's own credsDavid Howells1-5/+11
Use RCU to access another task's creds and to release a task's own creds. This means that it will be possible for the credentials of a task to be replaced without another task (a) requiring a full lock to read them, and (b) seeing deallocated memory.

2008-11-14CRED: Separate task security context from task_structDavid Howells1-4/+4
Separate the task security context from task_struct. At this point, the security data is temporarily embedded in the task_struct with two pointers pointing to it. Note that the Alpha arch is altered as it refers to (E)UID and (E)GID in entry.S via asm-offsets.

2008-06-27CONNECTOR: add a proc entry to list connectorsLi Zefan1-0/+40
I got a problem when I wanted to check if the kernel supports process event connector, and It seems there's no way to do this check. At best I can check if the kernel supports connector or not, by looking into /proc/net/netlink, or maybe checking the return value of bind() to see if it's ENOENT. So it would be useful to add /proc/net/connector to list all supported connectors: # cat /proc/net/connector Name ID connector 4294967295:4294967295 cn_proc 1:1 w1 3:1 Changelog: - fix memory leak: s/seq_release/single_release - use spin_lock_bh instead of spin_lock_irqsave Signed-off-by: Li Zefan <lizf@cn.fujitsu.com> Acked-by: Evgeniy Polyakov <johnpol@2ka.mipt.ru> Signed-off-by: David S.

2008-03-23connector: convert to single-threaded workqueueEvgeniy Polyakov1-1/+1
From: Evgeniy Polyakov <johnpol@2ka.mipt.ru> We don't need one cqueue thread for each CPU. cqueue is used for receiving userspace datagrams, which are very rare and thus will happily live with a single queue.

2008-01-28[CONNECTOR]: Cleanup struct cn_callback_entryLi Zefan1-1/+0
- 'cb' is a fake struct member. In a previous patch struct cn_callback was renamed to cn_callback_id, so 'cb' should have been deleted at that time. - 'nls' isn't used and is redundant, we can retrieve this data through cn_callback_entry.pdev->nls. - 'seq' and 'group' should be u32, as they are declared to be u32 in other places.

2008-01-28[CONNECTOR]: clean up {,__}cn_rx_skb()Li Zefan1-26/+4
- __cn_rx_skb() does nothing but calls cn_call_callback(), it doesn't check skb and msg sizes as the comment suggests, but cn_rx_skb() checks those sizes. - In cn_rx_skb() Local variable 'len' is not used. 'len' is probably intended to be passed to skb_pull(), but here skb_pull() is not needed, instead skb_free() is called. Signed-off-by: Li Zefan <lizf@cn.fujitsu.com> Signed-off-by: David S.
