      ipc,msg: drop dst nil validation in copy_msg · 5f2a2d5d
      Davidlohr Bueso authored
      d0edd852 ("ipc: convert invalid scenarios to use WARN_ON") relaxed the
      nil dst parameter check, originally being a full BUG_ON.  However, this
      check seems quite unnecessary when the only purpose is for
      ceckpoint/restore (MSG_COPY flag):
      o The copy variable is set initially to nil, apparently as a way of
        ensuring that prepare_copy is previously called.  Which is in fact done,
        unconditionally at the beginning of do_msgrcv.
      o There is no concurrency with 'copy' (stack allocated in do_msgrcv).
      Furthermore, any errors in 'copy' (and thus prepare_copy/copy_msg) should
      always handled by IS_ERR() family.  Therefore remove this check altogether
      as it can never occur with the current users.

      ipc: convert invalid scenarios to use WARN_ON · d0edd852
      Davidlohr Bueso authored
      Considering Linus' past rants about the (ab)use of BUG in the kernel, I
      took a look at how we deal with such calls in ipc.  Given that any errors
      or corruption in ipc code are most likely contained within the set of
      processes participating in the broken mechanisms, there aren't really many
      strong fatal system failure scenarios that would require a BUG call.
      Also, if something is seriously wrong, ipc might not be the place for such
      a BUG either.
      1. For example, recently, a customer hit one of these BUG_ONs in shm
         after failing shm_lock().  A busted ID imho does not merit a BUG_ON,
         and WARN would have been better.
      2. MSG_COPY functionality of posix msgrcv(2) for checkpoint/restore.
         I don't see how we can hit this anyway -- at least it should be IS_ERR.
          The 'copy' arg from do_msgrcv is always set by calling prepare_copy()
         first and foremost.  We could also probably drop this check altogether.
          Either way, it does not merit a BUG_ON.
      3. No ->fault() callback for the fs getting the corresponding page --
         seems selfish to make the system unusable.

      ipc, msg: fix message length check for negative values · 4e9b45a1
      Mathias Krause authored
      On 64 bit systems the test for negative message sizes is bogus as the
      size, which may be positive when evaluated as a long, will get truncated
      to an int when passed to load_msg().  So a long might very well contain a
      positive value but when truncated to an int it would become negative.
      That in combination with a small negative value of msg_ctlmax (which will
      be promoted to an unsigned type for the comparison against msgsz, making
      it a big positive value and therefore make it pass the check) will lead to
      two problems: 1/ The kmalloc() call in alloc_msg() will allocate a too
      small buffer as the addition of alen is effectively a subtraction.  2/ The
      copy_from_user() call in load_msg() will first overflow the buffer with
      userland data and then, when the userland access generates an access
      violation, the fixup handler copy_user_handle_tail() will try to fill the
      remainder with zeros -- roughly 4GB.  That almost instantly results in a
      system crash or reset.
        ,-[ Reproducer (needs to be run as root) ]--
        | #include <sys/stat.h>
        | #include <sys/msg.h>
        | #include <unistd.h>
        | #include <fcntl.h>
        | int main(void) {
        |     long msg = 1;
        |     int fd;
        |     fd = open("/proc/sys/kernel/msgmax", O_WRONLY);
        |     write(fd, "-1", 2);
        |     close(fd);
        |     msgsnd(0, &msg, 0xfffffff0, IPC_NOWAIT);
        |     return 0;
        | }
      Fix the issue by preventing msgsz from getting truncated by consistently
      using size_t for the message length.  This way the size checks in
      do_msgsnd() could still be passed with a negative value for msg_ctlmax but
      we would fail on the buffer allocation in that case and error out.
      Also change the type of m_ts from int to size_t to avoid similar nastiness
      in other code paths -- it is used in similar constructs, i.e.  signed vs.
      unsigned checks.  It should never become negative under normal
      circumstances, though.
      Setting msg_ctlmax to a negative value is an odd configuration and should
      be prevented.  As that might break existing userland, it will be handled
      in a separate commit so it could easily be reverted and reworked without
      reintroducing the above described bug.
      Hardening mechanisms for user copy operations would have catched that bug
      early -- e.g.  checking slab object sizes on user copy operations as the
      usercopy feature of the PaX patch does.  Or, for that matter, detect the
      long vs.  int sign change due to truncation, as the size overflow plugin
      of the very same patch does.

      ipc: introduce message queue copy feature · 4a674f34
      Stanislav Kinsbursky authored
      This patch is required for checkpoint/restore in userspace.
      c/r requires some way to get all pending IPC messages without deleting
      them from the queue (checkpoint can fail and in this case tasks will be
      resumed, so queue have to be valid).
      To achive this, new operation flag MSG_COPY for sys_msgrcv() system call
      was introduced.  If this flag was specified, then mtype is interpreted as
      number of the message to copy.
      If MSG_COPY is set, then kernel will allocate dummy message with passed
      size, and then use new copy_msg() helper function to copy desired message
      (instead of unlinking it from the queue).
      1) Return -ENOSYS if MSG_COPY is specified, but
         CONFIG_CHECKPOINT_RESTORE is not set.

      proc: Usable inode numbers for the namespace file descriptors. · 98f842e6
      Eric W. Biederman authored
      Assign a unique proc inode to each namespace, and use that
      inode number to ensure we only allocate at most one proc
      inode for every namespace in proc.
      A single proc inode per namespace allows userspace to test
      to see if two processes are in the same namespace.
      This has been a long requested feature and only blocked because
      a naive implementation would put the id in a global space and
      would ultimately require having a namespace for the names of
      namespaces, making migration and certain virtualization tricks
      We still don't have per superblock inode numbers for proc, which
      appears necessary for application unaware checkpoint/restart and
      migrations (if the application is using namespace file descriptors)
      but that is now allowd by the design if it becomes important.
      I have preallocated the ipc and uts initial proc inode numbers so
      their structures can be statically initialized.

      namespaces: ipc namespaces: implement support for posix msqueues · 7eafd7c7
      Serge E. Hallyn authored
      Implement multiple mounts of the mqueue file system, and link it to usage
      of CLONE_NEWIPC.
      Each ipc ns has a corresponding mqueuefs superblock.  When a user does
      clone(CLONE_NEWIPC) or unshare(CLONE_NEWIPC), the unshare will cause an
      internal mount of a new mqueuefs sb linked to the new ipc ns.
      When a user does 'mount -t mqueue mqueue /dev/mqueue', he mounts the
      mqueuefs superblock.
      Posix message queues can be worked with both through the mq_* system calls
      (see mq_overview(7)), and through the VFS through the mqueue mount.  Any
      usage of mq_open() and friends will work with the acting task's ipc
      namespace.  Any actions through the VFS will work with the mqueuefs in
      which the file was created.  So if a user doesn't remount mqueuefs after
      unshare(CLONE_NEWIPC), mq_open("/ab") will not be reflected in "ls
      If task a mounts mqueue for ipc_ns:1, then clones task b with a new ipcns,
      ipcns:2, and then task a is the last task in ipc_ns:1 to exit, then (1)
      ipc_ns:1 will be freed, (2) it's superblock will live on until task b
      umounts the corresponding mqueuefs, and vfs actions will continue to
      succeed, but (3) sb->s_fs_info will be NULL for the sb corresponding to
      the deceased ipc_ns:1.
      To make this happen, we must protect the ipc reference count when
      a) a task exits and drops its ipcns->count, since it might be dropping
         it to 0 and freeing the ipcns
      b) a task accesses the ipcns through its mqueuefs interface, since it
         bumps the ipcns refcount and might race with the last task in the ipcns
      So the kref is changed to an atomic_t so we can use
      atomic_dec_and_lock(&ns->count,mq_lock), and every access to the ipcns
      through ns = mqueuefs_sb->s_fs_info is protected by the same lock.

      The sysctl code will be fixed separately in patch 3.  After just this
