2014-06-16fs,userns: Change inode_capable to capable_wrt_inode_uidgidAndy Lutomirski
commit 23adbe12ef7d3d4195e80800ab36b37bee28cd03 upstream. The kernel has no concept of capabilities with respect to inodes; inodes exist independently of namespaces. For example, inode_capable(inode, CAP_LINUX_IMMUTABLE) would be nonsense. This patch changes inode_capable to check for uid and gid mappings and renames it to capable_wrt_inode_uidgid, which should make it more obvious what it does. Fixes CVE-2014-4014.

2014-03-06fs: fix iversion handlingChristoph Hellwig
commit dff6efc326a4d5f305797d4a6bba14f374fdd633 upstream. Currently notify_change directly updates i_version for size updates, which not only is counter to how all other fields are updated through struct iattr, but also breaks XFS, which need inode updates to happen under its own lock, and synchronized to the structure that gets written to the log. Remove the update in the common code, and it to btrfs and ext4, XFS already does a proper updaste internally and currently gets a double update with the existing code. IMHO this is 3.13 and -stable material and should go in through the XFS tree.

When a file is truncated with truncate()/ftruncate() and then closed, iversion is not updated. This patch uses ATTR_SIZE flag as an indication to increment iversion. Mimi said: On fput(), i_version is used to detect and flag files that have changed and need to be re-measured in the IMA measurement policy. When a file is truncated with truncate()/ftruncate() and then closed, i_version is not updated. As a result, although the file has changed, it will not be re-measured and added to the IMA measurement list on subsequent access.

2011-07-20fs: kill i_alloc_semChristoph Hellwig
i_alloc_sem is a rather special rw_semaphore. It's the last one that may be released by a non-owner, and it's write side is always mirrored by real exclusion. It's intended use it to wait for all pending direct I/O requests to finish before starting a truncate. Replace it with a hand-grown construct: - exclusion for truncates is already guaranteed by i_mutex, so it can simply fall way - the reader side is replaced by an i_dio_count member in struct inode that counts the number of pending direct I/O requests. Truncate can't proceed as long as it's non-zero - when i_dio_count reaches non-zero we wake up a pending truncate using wake_up_bit on a new bit in i_flags - new references to i_dio_count can't appear while we are waiting for it to read zero because the direct I/O count always needs i_mutex (or an equivalent like XFS's i_iolock) for starting a new operation. This scheme is much simpler, and saves the space of a spinlock_t and a struct list_head in struct inode (typically 160 bits on a non-debug 64-bit system).

2011-05-28Cache xattr security drop check for write v2Andi Kleen
Some recent benchmarking on btrfs showed that a major scaling bottleneck on large systems on btrfs is currently the xattr lookup on every write. Why xattr lookup on every write I hear you ask? write wants to drop suid and security related xattrs that could set o capabilities for executables. To do that it currently looks up security.capability on EVERY write (even for non executables) to decide whether to drop it or not. In btrfs this causes an additional tree walk, hitting some per file system locks and quite bad scalability. In a simple read workload on a 8S system I saw over 90% CPU time in spinlocks related to that. Chris Mason tells me this is also a problem in ext4, where it hits the global mbcache lock. This patch adds a simple per inode to avoid this problem. We only do the lookup once per file and then if there is no xattr cache the decision. All xattr changes clear the flag. I also used the same flag to avoid the suid check, although that one is pretty cheap. A file system can also set this flag when it creates the inode, if it has a cheap way to do so. This is done for some common file systems in followon patches. With this patch a major part of the lock contention disappears for btrfs. Some testing on smaller systems didn't show significant performance changes, but at least it helps the larger systems and is generally more efficient. v2: Rename is_sgid. add file system helper.

2010-08-09check ATTR_SIZE contraints in inode_change_okChristoph Hellwig
Make sure we check the truncate constraints early on in ->setattr by adding those checks to inode_change_ok. Also clean up and document inode_change_ok to make this obvious. As a fallout we don't have to call inode_newsize_ok from simple_setsize and simplify it down to a truncate_setsize which doesn't return an error. This simplifies a lot of setattr implementations and means we use truncate_setsize almost everywhere. Get rid of fat_setsize now that it's trivial and mark ext2_setsize static to make the calling convention obvious. Keep the inode_newsize_ok in vmtruncate for now as all callers need an audit for its removal anyway. Note: setattr code in ecryptfs doesn't call inode_change_ok at all and needs a deeper audit, but that is left for later.

2010-08-09remove inode_setattrChristoph Hellwig
Replace inode_setattr with opencoded variants of it in all callers. This moves the remaining call to vmtruncate into the filesystem methods where it can be replaced with the proper truncate sequence. In a few cases it was obvious that we would never end up calling vmtruncate so it was left out in the opencoded variant: spufs: explicitly checks for ATTR_SIZE earlier btrfs,hugetlbfs,logfs,dlmfs: explicitly clears ATTR_SIZE earlier ufs: contains an opencoded simple_seattr + truncate that sets the filesize just above In addition to that ncpfs called inode_setattr with handcrafted iattrs, which allowed to trim down the opencoded variant.

2010-08-09default to simple_setattrChristoph Hellwig
With the new truncate sequence every filesystem that wants to support file size changes on disk needs to implement its own ->setattr. So instead of calling inode_setattr which supports size changes call into a simple method that doesn't support this. simple_setattr is almost what we want except that it does not mark the inode dirty after changes. Given that marking the inode dirty is a no-op for the simple in-memory filesystems that use simple_setattr currently just add the mark_inode_dirty call. Also add a WARN_ON for the presence of a truncate method to simple_setattr to catch new instances of it during the transition period.

2010-05-27fs: introduce new truncate sequencenpiggin@suse.de
Introduce a new truncate calling sequence into fs/mm subsystems. Rather than setattr > vmtruncate > truncate, have filesystems call their truncate sequence from ->setattr if filesystem specific operations are required. vmtruncate is deprecated, and truncate_pagecache and inode_newsize_ok helpers introduced previously should be used. simple_setattr is introduced for simple in-ram filesystems to implement the new truncate sequence. Eventually all filesystems should be converted to implement a setattr, and the default code in notify_change should go away. simple_setsize is also introduced to perform just the ATTR_SIZE portion of simple_setattr (ie. changing i_size and trimming pagecache). To implement the new truncate sequence: - filesystem specific manipulations (eg freeing blocks) must be done in the setattr method rather than ->truncate. - vmtruncate can not be used by core code to trim blocks past i_size in the event of write failure after allocation, so this must be performed in the fs code. - convert usage of helpers block_write_begin, nobh_write_begin, cont_write_begin, and *blockdev_direct_IO* to use _newtrunc postfixed variants. These avoid calling vmtruncate to trim blocks (see previous). - inode_setattr should not be used. generic_setattr is a new function to be used to copy simple attributes into the generic inode. - make use of the better opportunity to handle errors with the new sequence. Big problem with the previous calling sequence: the filesystem is not called until i_size has already changed. This means it is not allowed to fail the call, and also it does not know what the previous i_size was. Also, generic code calling vmtruncate to truncate allocated blocks in case of error had no good way to return a meaningful error (or, for example, atomically handle block deallocation).

2007-10-18VFS: make notify_change pass ATTR_KILL_S*ID to setattr operationsJeff Layton
When an unprivileged process attempts to modify a file that has the setuid or setgid bits set, the VFS will attempt to clear these bits. The VFS will set the ATTR_KILL_SUID or ATTR_KILL_SGID bits in the ia_valid mask, and then call notify_change to clear these bits and set the mode accordingly. With a networked filesystem (NFS and CIFS in particular but likely others), the client machine or process may not have credentials that allow for setting the mode. In some situations, this can lead to file corruption, an operation failing outright because the setattr fails, or to races that lead to a mode change being reverted. In this situation, we'd like to just leave the handling of this to the server and ignore these bits. The problem is that by the time the setattr op is called, the VFS has already reinterpreted the ATTR_KILL_* bits into a mode change. The setattr operation has no way to know its intent. The following patch fixes this by making notify_change no longer clear the ATTR_KILL_SUID and ATTR_KILL_SGID bits in the ia_valid before handing it off to the setattr inode op. setattr can then check for the presence of these bits, and if they're set it can assume that the mode change was only for the purposes of clearing these bits. This means that we now have an implicit assumption that notify_change is never called with ATTR_MODE and either ATTR_KILL_S*ID bit set. Nothing currently enforces that, so this patch also adds a BUG() if that occurs.

2007-10-17Implement file posix capabilitiesSerge E. Hallyn
Implement file posix capabilities. This allows programs to be given a subset of root's powers regardless of who runs them, without having to use setuid and giving the binary all of root's powers. This version works with Kaigai Kohei's userspace tools, found at http://www.kaigai.gr.jp/index.php. For more information on how to use this patch, Chris Friedhoff has posted a nice page at http://www.friedhoff.org/fscaps.html. Changelog: Nov 27: Incorporate fixes from Andrew Morton (security-introduce-file-caps-tweaks and security-introduce-file-caps-warning-fix) Fix Kconfig dependency. Fix change signaling behavior when file caps are not compiled in. Nov 13: Integrate comments from Alexey: Remove CONFIG_ ifdef from capability.h, and use %zd for printing a size_t. Nov 13: Fix endianness warnings by sparse as suggested by Alexey Dobriyan. Nov 09: Address warnings of unused variables at cap_bprm_set_security when file capabilities are disabled, and simultaneously clean up the code a little, by pulling the new code into a helper function. Nov 08: For pointers to required userspace tools and how to use them, see http://www.friedhoff.org/fscaps.html. Nov 07: Fix the calculation of the highest bit checked in check_cap_sanity(). Nov 07: Allow file caps to be enabled without CONFIG_SECURITY, since capabilities are the default. Hook cap_task_setscheduler when !CONFIG_SECURITY. Move capable(TASK_KILL) to end of cap_task_kill to reduce audit messages. Nov 05: Add secondary calls in selinux/hooks.c to task_setioprio and task_setscheduler so that selinux and capabilities with file cap support can be stacked. Sep 05: As Seth Arnold points out, uid checks are out of place for capability code. Sep 01: Define task_setscheduler, task_setioprio, cap_task_kill, and task_setnice to make sure a user cannot affect a process in which they called a program with some fscaps. One remaining question is the note under task_setscheduler: are we ok with CAP_SYS_NICE being sufficient to confine a process to a cpuset? It is a semantic change, as without fsccaps, attach_task doesn't allow CAP_SYS_NICE to override the uid equivalence check. But since it uses security_task_setscheduler, which elsewhere is used where CAP_SYS_NICE can be used to override the uid equivalence check, fixing it might be tough. task_setscheduler note: this also controls cpuset:attach_task. Are we ok with CAP_SYS_NICE being used to confine to a cpuset? task_setioprio task_setnice sys_setpriority uses this (through set_one_prio) for another process. Need same checks as setrlimit Aug 21: Updated secureexec implementation to reflect the fact that euid and uid might be the same and nonzero, but the process might still have elevated caps. Aug 15: Handle endianness of xattrs. Enforce capability version match between kernel and disk. Enforce that no bits beyond the known max capability are set, else return -EPERM. With this extra processing, it may be worth reconsidering doing all the work at bprm_set_security rather than d_instantiate. Aug 10: Always call getxattr at bprm_set_security, rather than caching it at d_instantiate.

Introduce is_owner_or_cap() macro in fs.h, and convert over relevant users to it.

[ XFS uses special macros and structures, and in general looked ... untouchable, so we leave it alone -- but it has been looked over. ] The (current->fsuid != inode->i_uid) check in generic_permission() and exec_permission_lite() is left alone, because those operations are covered by CAP_DAC_OVERRIDE and CAP_DAC_READ_SEARCH.

2006-01-08[PATCH] Fix some problems with truncate and mtime semantics.NeilBrown
SUS requires that when truncating a file to the size that it currently is: truncate and ftruncate should NOT modify ctime or mtime O_TRUNC SHOULD modify ctime and mtime. Currently mtime and ctime are always modified on most local filesystems (side effect of ->truncate) or never modified (on NFS). With this patch: ATTR_CTIME|ATTR_MTIME are sent with ATTR_SIZE precisely when an update of these times is required whether size changes or not (via a new argument to do_truncate). This allows NFS to do the right thing for O_TRUNC. inode_setattr nolonger forces ATTR_MTIME|ATTR_CTIME when the ATTR_SIZE sets the size to it's current value. This allows local filesystems to do the right thing for f?truncate. Also, the logic in inode_setattr is changed a bit so there are two return points. One returns the error from vmtruncate if it failed, the other returns 0 (there can be no other failure). Finally, if vmtruncate succeeds, and ATTR_SIZE is the only change requested, we now fall-through and mark_inode_dirty. If a filesystem did not have a ->truncate function, then vmtruncate will have changed i_size, without marking the inode as 'dirty', and I think this is wrong.

2005-07-12[PATCH] inotifyRobert Love
inotify is intended to correct the deficiencies of dnotify, particularly its inability to scale and its terrible user interface: * dnotify requires the opening of one fd per each directory that you intend to watch. This quickly results in too many open files and pins removable media, preventing unmount. * dnotify is directory-based. You only learn about changes to directories. Sure, a change to a file in a directory affects the directory, but you are then forced to keep a cache of stat structures. * dnotify's interface to user-space is awful. Signals? inotify provides a more usable, simple, powerful solution to file change notification: * inotify's interface is a system call that returns a fd, not SIGIO. You get a single fd, which is select()-able. * inotify has an event that says "the filesystem that the item you were watching is on was unmounted." * inotify can watch directories or files. Inotify is currently used by Beagle (a desktop search infrastructure), Gamin (a FAM replacement), and other projects. See Documentation/filesystems/inotify.txt.

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!
