2014-07-31coredump: fix the setting of PF_DUMPCORESilesh C V
commit aed8adb7688d5744cb484226820163af31d2499a upstream. Commit 079148b919d0 ("coredump: factor out the setting of PF_DUMPCORE") cleaned up the setting of PF_DUMPCORE by removing it from all the linux_binfmt->core_dump() and moving it to zap_threads().But this ended up clearing all the previously set flags. This causes issues during core generation when tsk->flags is checked again (eg. for PF_USED_MATH to dump floating point registers). Fix this.

2013-04-30coredump: change wait_for_dump_helpers() to use wait_event_interruptible()Oleg Nesterov
wait_for_dump_helpers() calls wake_up/kill_fasync from inside the wait_event-like loop. This is not needed and in fact this is not strictly correct, we can/should do this only once after we change pipe->writers. We could even check if it becomes zero. Change this code to use use wait_event_interruptible(), this can also help to make this wait freezable. With this patch we check pipe->readers without pipe_lock(), this is fine. Once we see pipe->readers == 1 we know that the handler decremented the counter, this is all we need.

2013-04-30coredump: introduce dump_interrupted()Oleg Nesterov
By discussion with Mandeep. Change dump_write(), dump_seek() and do_coredump() to check signal_pending() and abort if it is true. dump_seek() does this only before f_op->llseek(), otherwise it relies on dump_write(). We need this change to ensure that the coredump won't delay suspend, and to ensure it reacts to SIGKILL "quickly enough", a core dump can take a lot of time. In particular this can help oom-killer. We add the new trivial helper, dump_interrupted() to add the comments and to simplify the potential freezer changes. Perhaps it will have more callers. Ideally it should do try_to_freeze() but then we need the unpleasant changes in dump_write() and wait_for_dump_helpers(). It is not trivial to change dump_write() to restart if f_op->write() fails because of freezing(). We need to handle the short writes, we need to clear TIF_SIGPENDING (and we can't rely on recalc_sigpending() unless we change it to check PF_DUMPCORE). And if the buggy f_op->write() sets TIF_SIGPENDING we can not distinguish this case from the race with freeze_task() + __thaw_task(). So we simply accept the fact that the freezer can truncate a core-dump but at least you can reliably suspend. Hopefully we can tolerate this unlikely case and the necessary complications doesn't worth a trouble. But if we decide to make the coredumping freezable later we can do this on top of this change.

2013-04-30coredump: sanitize the setting of signal->group_exit_codeOleg Nesterov
Now that the coredumping process can be SIGKILL'ed, the setting of ->group_exit_code in do_coredump() can race with complete_signal() and SIGKILL or 0x80 can be "lost", or wait(status) can report status == SIGKILL | 0x80. But the main problem is that it is not clear to me what should we do if binfmt->core_dump() succeeds but SIGKILL was sent, that is why this patch comes as a separate change. This patch adds 0x80 if ->core_dump() succeeds and the process was not killed. But perhaps we can (should?) re-set ->group_exit_code changed by SIGKILL back to "siginfo->si_signo |= 0x80" in case when core_dumped == T.

2013-04-30coredump: ensure that SIGKILL always kills the dumping threadOleg Nesterov
prepare_signal() blesses SIGKILL sent to the dumping process but this signal can be "lost" anyway. The problems is, complete_signal() sees SIGNAL_GROUP_EXIT and skips the "kill them all" logic. And even if the dumping process is single-threaded (so the target is always "correct"), the group-wide SIGKILL is not recorded in task->pending and thus __fatal_signal_pending() won't be true. A multi-threaded case has even more problems. And even ignoring all technical details, SIGNAL_GROUP_EXIT doesn't look right to me. This coredumping process is not exiting yet, it can do a lot of work dumping the core. With this patch the dumping process doesn't have SIGNAL_GROUP_EXIT, we set signal->group_exit_task instead. This makes signal_group_exit() true and thus this should equally close the races with exit/exec/stop but allows to kill the dumping thread reliably. Notes: - It is not clear what should we do with ->group_exit_code if the dumper was killed, see the next change. - we need more (hopefully straightforward) changes to ensure that SIGKILL actually interrupts the coredump. Basically we need to check __fatal_signal_pending() in dump_write() and dump_seek().

2013-04-30coredump: only SIGKILL should interrupt the coredumping taskOleg Nesterov
There are 2 well known and ancient problems with coredump/signals, and a lot of related bug reports: - do_coredump() clears TIF_SIGPENDING but of course this can't help if, say, SIGCHLD comes after that. In this case the coredump can fail unexpectedly. See for example wait_for_dump_helper()->signal_pending() check but there are other reasons. - At the same time, dumping a huge core on the slow media can take a lot of time/resources and there is no way to kill the coredumping task reliably. In particular this is not oom_kill-friendly. This patch tries to fix the 1st problem, and makes the preparation for the next changes. We add the new SIGNAL_GROUP_COREDUMP flag set by zap_threads() to indicate that this process dumps the core. prepare_signal() checks this flag and nacks any signal except SIGKILL. Note that this check tries to be conservative, in the long term we should probably treat the SIGNAL_GROUP_EXIT case equally but this needs more discussion. See marc.info/?l=linux-kernel&m=120508897917439 Notes: - recalc_sigpending() doesn't check SIGNAL_GROUP_COREDUMP. The patch assumes that dump_write/etc paths should never call it, but we can change it as well. - There is another source of TIF_SIGPENDING, freezer. This will be addressed separately.

2012-10-06coredump: add support for %d=__get_dumpable() in core nameOleg Nesterov
Some coredump handlers want to create a core file in a way compatible with standard behavior. Standard behavior with fs.suid_dumpable = 2 is to create core file with uid=gid=0. However, there was no way for coredump handler to know that the process being dumped was suid'ed. This patch adds the new %d specifier for format_corename() which simply reports __get_dumpable(mm->flags), this is compatible with /proc/sys/fs/suid_dumpable we already have.
