2012-12-17ptrace: introduce PTRACE_O_EXITKILLOleg Nesterov
Ptrace jailers want to be sure that the tracee can never escape from the control. However if the tracer dies unexpectedly the tracee continues to run in potentially unsafe mode. Add the new ptrace option PTRACE_O_EXITKILL. If the tracer exits it sends SIGKILL to every tracee which has this bit set. Note that the new option is not equal to the last-option << 1. Because currently all options have an event, and the new one starts the eventless group. It uses the random 20 bit, so we have the room for 12 more events, but we can also add the new eventless options below this one. Suggested by Amnon Shiloh.

This function is used by sparc, powerpc tile and arm64 for compat support. The patch adds a generic implementation with a wrapper for PowerPC to do the u32->int sign extension.

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/ebiederm/user-namespace Pull user namespace changes from Eric Biederman: "While small this set of changes is very significant with respect to containers in general and user namespaces in particular. The user space interface is now complete. This set of changes adds support for unprivileged users to create user namespaces and as a user namespace root to create other namespaces. The tyranny of supporting suid root preventing unprivileged users from using cool new kernel features is broken. This set of changes completes the work on setns, adding support for the pid, user, mount namespaces. This set of changes includes a bunch of basic pid namespace cleanups/simplifications. Of particular significance is the rework of the pid namespace cleanup so it no longer requires sending out tendrils into all kinds of unexpected cleanup paths for operation. At least one case of broken error handling is fixed by this cleanup. The files under /proc/<pid>/ns/ have been converted from regular files to magic symlinks which prevents incorrect caching by the VFS, ensuring the files always refer to the namespace the process is currently using and ensuring that the ptrace_mayaccess permission checks are always applied. The files under /proc/<pid>/ns/ have been given stable inode numbers so it is now possible to see if different processes share the same namespaces. Through the David Miller's net tree are changes to relax many of the permission checks in the networking stack to allowing the user namespace root to usefully use the networking stack. Similar changes for the mount namespace and the pid namespace are coming through my tree. Two small changes to add user namespace support were commited here adn in David Miller's -net tree so that I could complete the work on the /proc/<pid>/ns/ files in this tree. Work remains to make it safe to build user namespaces and 9p, afs, ceph, cifs, coda, gfs2, ncpfs, nfs, nfsd, ocfs2, and xfs so the Kconfig guard remains in place preventing that user namespaces from being built when any of those filesystems are enabled.

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/mel/linux-balancenuma Pull Automatic NUMA Balancing bare-bones from Mel Gorman: "There are three implementations for NUMA balancing, this tree (balancenuma), numacore which has been developed in tip/master and autonuma which is in aa.git. In almost all respects balancenuma is the dumbest of the three because its main impact is on the VM side with no attempt to be smart about scheduling. In the interest of getting the ball rolling, it would be desirable to see this much merged for 3.8 with the view to building scheduler smarts on top and adapting the VM where required for 3.9. The most recent set of comparisons available from different people are mel: https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/12/9/108 mingo: https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/12/7/331 tglx: https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/12/10/437 srikar: https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/12/10/397 The results are a mixed bag. In my own tests, balancenuma does reasonably well. It's dumb as rocks and does not regress against mainline. On the other hand, Ingo's tests shows that balancenuma is incapable of converging for this workloads driven by perf which is bad but is potentially explained by the lack of scheduler smarts. Thomas' results show balancenuma improves on mainline but falls far short of numacore or autonuma. Srikar's results indicate we all suffer on a large machine with imbalanced node sizes. My own testing showed that recent numacore results have improved dramatically, particularly in the last week but not universally. We've butted heads heavily on system CPU usage and high levels of migration even when it shows that overall performance is better. There are also cases where it regresses. Of interest is that for specjbb in some configurations it will regress for lower numbers of warehouses and show gains for higher numbers which is not reported by the tool by default and sometimes missed in treports. Recently I reported for numacore that the JVM was crashing with NullPointerExceptions but currently it's unclear what the source of this problem is. Initially I thought it was in how numacore batch handles PTEs but I'm no longer think this is the case. It's possible numacore is just able to trigger it due to higher rates of migration. These reports were quite late in the cycle so I/we would like to start with this tree as it contains much of the code we can agree on and has not changed significantly over the last 2-3 weeks." * tag 'balancenuma-v11' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/mel/linux-balancenuma: (50 commits) mm/rmap, migration: Make rmap_walk_anon() and try_to_unmap_anon() more scalable mm/rmap: Convert the struct anon_vma::mutex to an rwsem mm: migrate: Account a transhuge page properly when rate limiting mm: numa: Account for failed allocations and isolations as migration failures mm: numa: Add THP migration for the NUMA working set scanning fault case build fix mm: numa: Add THP migration for the NUMA working set scanning fault case. mm: sched: numa: Delay PTE scanning until a task is scheduled on a new node mm: sched: numa: Control enabling and disabling of NUMA balancing if !SCHED_DEBUG mm: sched: numa: Control enabling and disabling of NUMA balancing mm: sched: Adapt the scanning rate if a NUMA hinting fault does not migrate mm: numa: Use a two-stage filter to restrict pages being migrated for unlikely task<->node relationships mm: numa: migrate: Set last_nid on newly allocated page mm: numa: split_huge_page: Transfer last_nid on tail page mm: numa: Introduce last_nid to the page frame sched: numa: Slowly increase the scanning period as NUMA faults are handled mm: numa: Rate limit setting of pte_numa if node is saturated mm: numa: Rate limit the amount of memory that is migrated between nodes mm: numa: Structures for Migrate On Fault per NUMA migration rate limiting mm: numa: Migrate pages handled during a pmd_numa hinting fault mm: numa: Migrate on reference policy ...

When unsharing a user namespace we reduce our credentials to just what can be done in that user namespace. This is a subset of the credentials we previously had. Teach commit_creds to recognize this is a subset of the credentials we have had before and don't clear the dumpability flag. This allows an unprivileged program to do: unshare(CLONE_NEWUSER); fd = open("/proc/self/uid_map", O_RDWR); Where previously opening the uid_map writable would fail because the the task had been made non-dumpable.

Andy Lutomirski <luto@amacapital.net> found a nasty little bug in the permissions of setns. With unprivileged user namespaces it became possible to create new namespaces without privilege. However the setns calls were relaxed to only require CAP_SYS_ADMIN in the user nameapce of the targed namespace. Which made the following nasty sequence possible. pid = clone(CLONE_NEWUSER | CLONE_NEWNS); if (pid == 0) { /* child */ system("mount --bind /home/me/passwd /etc/passwd"); } else if (pid != 0) { /* parent */ char path[PATH_MAX]; snprintf(path, sizeof(path), "/proc/%u/ns/mnt"); fd = open(path, O_RDONLY); setns(fd, 0); system("su -"); } Prevent this possibility by requiring CAP_SYS_ADMIN in the current user namespace when joing all but the user namespace.

2012-12-14Revert "sched: Update_cfs_shares at period edge"Linus Torvalds
This reverts commit f269ae0469fc882332bdfb5db15d3c1315fe2a10. It turns out it causes a very noticeable interactivity regression with CONFIG_SCHED_AUTOGROUP (test-case: "make -j32" of the kernel in a terminal window, while scrolling in a browser - the autogrouping means that the two end up in separate cgroups, and the browser should be smooth as silk despite the high load). Says Paul Turner: "It seems that the update-throttling on the wake-side is reducing the interactive tasks' ability to preempt. While I suspect the right longer term answer here is force these updates only in the cross-cgroup case; this is less trivial. For this release I believe the right answer is either going to be a revert or restore the updates on the enqueue-side."

In commit d0a21265dfb5fa8a David Rientjes unified various archs' module_alloc implementation (including x86) and removed the graduitous shortcut for size == 0. Then, in commit de7d2b567d040e3b, Joe Perches added a warning for zero-length vmallocs, which can happen without kallsyms on modules with no init sections (eg. zlib_deflate). Fix this once and for all; the module code has to handle zero length anyway, so get it right at the caller and remove the now-gratuitous checks within the arch-specific module_alloc implementations.

2012-12-14module: add syscall to load module from fdKees Cook
As part of the effort to create a stronger boundary between root and kernel, Chrome OS wants to be able to enforce that kernel modules are being loaded only from our read-only crypto-hash verified (dm_verity) root filesystem. Since the init_module syscall hands the kernel a module as a memory blob, no reasoning about the origin of the blob can be made. Earlier proposals for appending signatures to kernel modules would not be useful in Chrome OS, since it would involve adding an additional set of keys to our kernel and builds for no good reason: we already trust the contents of our root filesystem. We don't need to verify those kernel modules a second time. Having to do signature checking on module loading would slow us down and be redundant. All we need to know is where a module is coming from so we can say yes/no to loading it. If a file descriptor is used as the source of a kernel module, many more things can be reasoned about. In Chrome OS's case, we could enforce that the module lives on the filesystem we expect it to live on. In the case of IMA (or other LSMs), it would be possible, for example, to examine extended attributes that may contain signatures over the contents of the module. This introduces a new syscall (on x86), similar to init_module, that has only two arguments. The first argument is used as a file descriptor to the module and the second argument is a pointer to the NULL terminated string of module arguments.

The big changes are focused on making cgroup hierarchy handling saner. - cgroup_rmdir() had peculiar semantics - it allowed cgroup destruction to be vetoed by individual controllers and tried to drain refcnt synchronously. The vetoing never worked properly and caused good deal of contortions in cgroup. memcg was the last reamining user. Michal Hocko removed the usage and cgroup_rmdir() path has been simplified significantly. This was done in a separate branch so that the memcg people can base further memcg changes on top. - The above allowed cleaning up cgroup lifecycle management and implementation of generic cgroup iterators which are used to improve hierarchy support. - cgroup_freezer updated to allow migration in and out of a frozen cgroup and handle hierarchy. If a cgroup is frozen, all descendant cgroups are frozen. - netcls_cgroup and netprio_cgroup updated to handle hierarchy properly. - Various fixes and cleanups. - Two merge commits.

Enabled on Intel CPUs for now. Allowing this required the identification and fixing of latent CPU#0 assumptions (such as CPU#0 initializations, etc.) in the x86 architecture code, plus the identification of barriers to BSP-offlining, such as active PIC interrupts which can only be serviced on the BSP. It's behind a default-off option, and there's a debug option that allows the automatic testing of this feature. The motivation of this feature is to allow and prepare for true CPU-hotplug hardware support: recent changes to MCE support enable us to detect a deteriorating but not yet hard-failing L1/L2 cache on a CPU that could be soft-unplugged - or a failing L3 cache on a multi-socket system. Note that true hardware hot-plug is not yet fully enabled by this, because that requires a special platform wakeup sequence to be sent to the freshly powered up CPU#0.

For that reason the new load average is only limited to group scheduling (shares distribution) at the moment (which was also hurting the most from the prior, crude weight calculation and whose scheduling quality wins most from this change) - but we plan to extend this to regular SMP balancing as well in the future, which will simplify and speed up things a bit.

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/gregkh/tty Pull TTY/Serial merge from Greg Kroah-Hartman: "Here's the big tty/serial tree set of changes for 3.8-rc1. Contained in here is a bunch more reworks of the tty port layer from Jiri and bugfixes from Alan, along with a number of other tty and serial driver updates by the various driver authors. Also, Jiri has been coerced^Wconvinced to be the co-maintainer of the TTY layer, which is much appreciated by me. All of these have been in the linux-next tree for a while. Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@linuxfoundation.org>" Fixed up some trivial conflicts in the staging tree, due to the fwserial driver having come in both ways (but fixed up a bit in the serial tree), and the ioctl handling in the dgrp driver having been done slightly differently (staging tree got that one right, and removed both TIOCGSOFTCAR and TIOCSSOFTCAR). * tag 'tty-3.8-rc1' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/gregkh/tty: (146 commits) staging: sb105x: fix potential NULL pointer dereference in mp_chars_in_buffer() staging/fwserial: Remove superfluous free staging/fwserial: Use WARN_ONCE when port table is corrupted staging/fwserial: Destruct embedded tty_port on teardown staging/fwserial: Fix build breakage when !CONFIG_BUG staging: fwserial: Add TTY-over-Firewire serial driver drivers/tty/serial/serial_core.c: clean up HIGH_BITS_OFFSET usage staging: dgrp: dgrp_tty.c: Audit the return values of get/put_user() staging: dgrp: dgrp_tty.c: Remove the TIOCSSOFTCAR ioctl handler from dgrp driver serial: ifx6x60: Add modem power off function in the platform reboot process serial: mxs-auart: unmap the scatter list before we copy the data serial: mxs-auart: disable the Receive Timeout Interrupt when DMA is enabled serial: max310x: Setup missing "can_sleep" field for GPIO tty/serial: fix ifx6x60.c declaration warning serial: samsung: add devicetree properties for non-Exynos SoCs serial: samsung: fix potential soft lockup during uart write tty: vt: Remove redundant null check before kfree. tty/8250 Add check for pci_ioremap_bar failure tty/8250 Add support for Commtech's Fastcom Async-335 and Fastcom Async-PCIe cards tty/8250 Add XR17D15x devices to the exar_handle_irq override ...

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/gregkh/driver-core Pull driver core updates from Greg Kroah-Hartman: "Here's the large driver core updates for 3.8-rc1. The biggest thing here is the various __dev* marking removals. This is going to be a pain for the merge with different subsystem trees, I know, but all of the patches included here have been ACKed by their various subsystem maintainers, as they wanted them to go through here. If this is too much of a pain, I can pull all of them out of this tree and just send you one with the other fixes/updates and then, after 3.8-rc1 is out, do the rest of the removals to ensure we catch them all, it's up to you. The merges should all be trivial, and Stephen has been doing them all in linux-next for a few weeks now quite easily. Other than the __dev* marking removals, there's nothing major here, some firmware loading updates and other minor things in the driver core. All of these have (much to Stephen's annoyance), been in linux-next for a while.
