      Thomas Graf authored
      No need to export rht_obj(), all inner to outer object translations
      occur internally. It was intended to be used with rht_for_each() which
      now primarily serves as the iterator for rhashtable_remove_pprev() to
      effectively flush and free the full table.

      tcp: don't allow syn packets without timestamps to pass tcp_tw_recycle logic · a26552af
      Hannes Frederic Sowa authored
      tcp_tw_recycle heavily relies on tcp timestamps to build a per-host
      ordering of incoming connections and teardowns without the need to
      hold state on a specific quadruple for TCP_TIMEWAIT_LEN, but only for
      the last measured RTO. To do so, we keep the last seen timestamp in a
      per-host indexed data structure and verify if the incoming timestamp
      in a connection request is strictly greater than the saved one during
      last connection teardown. Thus we can verify later on that no old data
      packets will be accepted by the new connection.
      
      During moving a socket to time-wait state we already verify if timestamps
      where seen on a connection. Only if that was the case we let the
      time-wait socket expire after the RTO, otherwise normal TCP_TIMEWAIT_LEN
      will be used. But we don't verify this on incoming SYN packets. If a
      connection teardown was less than TCP_PAWS_MSL seconds in the past we
      cannot guarantee to not accept data packets from an old connection if
      no timestamps are present. We should drop this SYN packet. This patch
      closes this loophole.
      
      Please note, this patch does not make tcp_tw_recycle in any way more
      usable but only adds another safety check:
      Sporadic drops of SYN packets because of reordering in the network or
      in the socket backlog queues can happen. Users behing NAT trying to
      connect to a tcp_tw_recycle enabled server can get caught in blackholes
      and their connection requests may regullary get dropped because hosts
      behind an address translator don't have synchronized tcp timestamp clocks.
      tcp_tw_recycle cannot work if peers don't have tcp timestamps enabled.
      
      In general, use of tcp_tw_recycle is disadvised.

      We don't know right timestamp for repaired skb-s. Wrong RTT estimations
      isn't good, because some congestion modules heavily depends on it.

      net: Always untag vlan-tagged traffic on input. · 0d5501c1
      Vlad Yasevich authored
      Currently the functionality to untag traffic on input resides
      as part of the vlan module and is build only when VLAN support
      is enabled in the kernel.  When VLAN is disabled, the function
      vlan_untag() turns into a stub and doesn't really untag the
      packets.  This seems to create an interesting interaction
      between VMs supporting checksum offloading and some network drivers.
      
      There are some drivers that do not allow the user to change
      tx-vlan-offload feature of the driver.  These drivers also seem
      to assume that any VLAN-tagged traffic they transmit will
      have the vlan information in the vlan_tci and not in the vlan
      header already in the skb.  When transmitting skbs that already
      have tagged data with partial checksum set, the checksum doesn't
      appear to be updated correctly by the card thus resulting in a
      failure to establish TCP connections.
      
      The following is a packet trace taken on the receiver where a
      sender is a VM with a VLAN configued.  The host VM is running on
      doest not have VLAN support and the outging interface on the
      host is tg3:
      10:12:43.503055 52:54:00:ae:42:3f > 28:d2:44:7d:c2:de, ethertype 802.1Q
      (0x8100), length 78: vlan 100, p 0, ethertype IPv4, (tos 0x0, ttl 64, id 27243,
      offset 0, flags [DF], proto TCP (6), length 60)
          10.0.100.1.58545 > 10.0.100.10.ircu-2: Flags [S], cksum 0xdc39 (incorrect
      -> 0x48d9), seq 1069378582, win 29200, options [mss 1460,sackOK,TS val
      4294837885 ecr 0,nop,wscale 7], length 0

      (0x8100), length 78: vlan 100, p 0, ethertype IPv4, (tos 0x0, ttl 64, id 27244,
      offset 0, flags [DF], proto TCP (6), length 60)
          10.0.100.1.58545 > 10.0.100.10.ircu-2: Flags [S], cksum 0xdc39 (incorrect
      -> 0x44ee), seq 1069378582, win 29200, options [mss 1460,sackOK,TS val
      4294838888 ecr 0,nop,wscale 7], length 0
      
      This connection finally times out.
      
      I've only access to the TG3 hardware in this configuration thus have
      only tested this with TG3 driver.  There are a lot of other drivers
      that do not permit user changes to vlan acceleration features, and
      I don't know if they all suffere from a similar issue.
      
      The patch attempt to fix this another way.  It moves the vlan header
      stipping code out of the vlan module and always builds it into the
      kernel network core.  This way, even if vlan is not supported on
      a virtualizatoin host, the virtual machines running on top of such
      host will still work with VLANs enabled.

      kexec: verify the signature of signed PE bzImage · 8e7d8381
      Vivek Goyal authored
      This is the final piece of the puzzle of verifying kernel image signature
      during kexec_file_load() syscall.
      
      This patch calls into PE file routines to verify signature of bzImage.  If
      signature are valid, kexec_file_load() succeeds otherwise it fails.
      
      Two new config options have been introduced.  First one is
      CONFIG_KEXEC_VERIFY_SIG.  This option enforces that kernel has to be
      validly signed otherwise kernel load will fail.  If this option is not
      set, no signature verification will be done.  Only exception will be when
      secureboot is enabled.  In that case signature verification should be
      automatically enforced when secureboot is enabled.  But that will happen
      when secureboot patches are merged.
      
      Second config option is CONFIG_KEXEC_BZIMAGE_VERIFY_SIG.  This option
      enables signature verification support on bzImage.  If this option is not
      set and previous one is set, kernel image loading will fail because kernel
      does not have support to verify signature of bzImage.
      
      I tested these patches with both "pesign" and "sbsign" signed bzImages.
      
      I used signing_key.priv key and signing_key.x509 cert for signing as
      generated during kernel build process (if module signing is enabled).
      
      Used following method to sign bzImage.
      
      pesign
      ======
      - Convert DER format cert to PEM format cert
      openssl x509 -in signing_key.x509 -inform DER -out signing_key.x509.PEM -outform
      PEM
      
      - Generate a .p12 file from existing cert and private key file
      openssl pkcs12 -export -out kernel-key.p12 -inkey signing_key.priv -in
      signing_key.x509.PEM
      
      - Import .p12 file into pesign db
      pk12util -i /tmp/kernel-key.p12 -d /etc/pki/pesign
      
      - Sign bzImage
      pesign -i /boot/vmlinuz-3.16.0-rc3+ -o /boot/vmlinuz-3.16.0-rc3+.signed.pesign
      -c "Glacier signing key - Magrathea" -s
      
      sbsign
      ======
      sbsign --key signing_key.priv --cert signing_key.x509.PEM --output
      /boot/vmlinuz-3.16.0-rc3+.signed.sbsign /boot/vmlinuz-3.16.0-rc3+
      
      Patch details:
      
      Well all the hard work is done in previous patches.  Now bzImage loader
      has just call into that code and verify whether bzImage signature are
      valid or not.
      
      Also create two config options.  First one is CONFIG_KEXEC_VERIFY_SIG.
      This option enforces that kernel has to be validly signed otherwise kernel
      load will fail.  If this option is not set, no signature verification will
      be done.  Only exception will be when secureboot is enabled.  In that case
      signature verification should be automatically enforced when secureboot is
      enabled.  But that will happen when secureboot patches are merged.
      
      Second config option is CONFIG_KEXEC_BZIMAGE_VERIFY_SIG.  This option
      enables signature verification support on bzImage.  If this option is not
      set and previous one is set, kernel image loading will fail because kernel
      does not have support to verify signature of bzImage.

      kexec: support kexec/kdump on EFI systems · 6a2c20e7
      Vivek Goyal authored
      This patch does two things.  It passes EFI run time mappings to second
      kernel in bootparams efi_info.  Second kernel parse this info and create
      new mappings in second kernel.  That means mappings in first and second
      kernel will be same.  This paves the way to enable EFI in kexec kernel.
      
      This patch also prepares and passes EFI setup data through bootparams.
      This contains bunch of information about various tables and their
      addresses.
      
      These information gathering and passing has been written along the lines
      of what current kexec-tools is doing to make kexec work with UEFI.

      kexec: load and relocate purgatory at kernel load time · 12db5562
      Vivek Goyal authored
      Load purgatory code in RAM and relocate it based on the location.
      Relocation code has been inspired by module relocation code and purgatory
      relocation code in kexec-tools.
      
      Also compute the checksums of loaded kexec segments and store them in
      purgatory.
      
      Arch independent code provides this functionality so that arch dependent
      bootloaders can make use of it.
      
      Helper functions are provided to get/set symbol values in purgatory which
      are used by bootloaders later to set things like stack and entry point of

      kexec: implementation of new syscall kexec_file_load · cb105258
      Vivek Goyal authored
      Previous patch provided the interface definition and this patch prvides
      implementation of new syscall.
      
      Previously segment list was prepared in user space.  Now user space just
      passes kernel fd, initrd fd and command line and kernel will create a
      segment list internally.
      
      This patch contains generic part of the code.  Actual segment preparation
      and loading is done by arch and image specific loader.  Which comes in
      next patch.

      kexec: make kexec_segment user buffer pointer a union · 815d5704
      Vivek Goyal authored
      So far kexec_segment->buf was always a user space pointer as user space
      passed the array of kexec_segment structures and kernel copied it.
      
      But with new system call, list of kexec segments will be prepared by
      kernel and kexec_segment->buf will point to a kernel memory.
      
      So while I was adding code where I made assumption that ->buf is pointing
      to kernel memory, sparse started giving warning.
      
      Make ->buf a union.  And where a user space pointer is expected, access it
      using ->buf and where a kernel space pointer is expected, access it using
      ->kbuf.  That takes care of sparse warnings.

      resource: provide new functions to walk through resources · 8c86e70a
      Vivek Goyal authored
      I have added two more functions to walk through resources.
      
      Currently walk_system_ram_range() deals with pfn and /proc/iomem can
      contain partial pages.  By dealing in pfn, callback function loses the
      info that last page of a memory range is a partial page and not the full
      page.  So I implemented walk_system_ram_res() which returns u64 values to
      callback functions and now it properly return start and end address.
      
      walk_system_ram_range() uses find_next_system_ram() to find the next ram
      resource.  This in turn only travels through siblings of top level child
      and does not travers through all the nodes of the resoruce tree.  I also
      need another function where I can walk through all the resources, for
      example figure out where "GART" aperture is.  Figure out where ACPI memory
      is.
      
      So I wrote another function walk_iomem_res() which walks through all
      /proc/iomem resources and returns matches as asked by caller.  Caller can
      specify "name" of resource, start and end and flags.
      
      Got rid of find_next_system_ram_res() and instead implemented more generic
      find_next_iomem_res() which can be used to traverse top level children
      only based on an argument.

      shm: add memfd_create() syscall · 9183df25
      David Herrmann authored
      memfd_create() is similar to mmap(MAP_ANON), but returns a file-descriptor
      that you can pass to mmap().  It can support sealing and avoids any
      connection to user-visible mount-points.  Thus, it's not subject to quotas
      on mounted file-systems, but can be used like malloc()'ed memory, but with
      a file-descriptor to it.
      
      memfd_create() returns the raw shmem file, so calls like ftruncate() can
      be used to modify the underlying inode.  Also calls like fstat() will
      return proper information and mark the file as regular file.  If you want
      sealing, you can specify MFD_ALLOW_SEALING.  Otherwise, sealing is not
      supported (like on all other regular files).
      
      Compared to O_TMPFILE, it does not require a tmpfs mount-point and is not
      subject to a filesystem size limit.  It is still properly accounted to
      memcg limits, though, and to the same overcommit or no-overcommit
      accounting as all user memory.

      shm: add sealing API · 40e041a2
      David Herrmann authored
      If two processes share a common memory region, they usually want some
      guarantees to allow safe access. This often includes:
        - one side cannot overwrite data while the other reads it
        - one side cannot shrink the buffer while the other accesses it
        - one side cannot grow the buffer beyond previously set boundaries
      
      If there is a trust-relationship between both parties, there is no need
      for policy enforcement.  However, if there's no trust relationship (eg.,
      for general-purpose IPC) sharing memory-regions is highly fragile and
      often not possible without local copies.  Look at the following two
      use-cases:
      
        1) A graphics client wants to share its rendering-buffer with a
           graphics-server. The memory-region is allocated by the client for
           read/write access and a second FD is passed to the server. While
           scanning out from the memory region, the server has no guarantee that
           the client doesn't shrink the buffer at any time, requiring rather
           cumbersome SIGBUS handling.
        2) A process wants to perform an RPC on another process. To avoid huge
           bandwidth consumption, zero-copy is preferred. After a message is
           assembled in-memory and a FD is passed to the remote side, both sides
           want to be sure that neither modifies this shared copy, anymore. The
           source may have put sensible data into the message without a separate
           copy and the target may want to parse the message inline, to avoid a
           local copy.
      
      While SIGBUS handling, POSIX mandatory locking and MAP_DENYWRITE provide
      ways to achieve most of this, the first one is unproportionally ugly to
      use in libraries and the latter two are broken/racy or even disabled due
      to denial of service attacks.
      
      This patch introduces the concept of SEALING.  If you seal a file, a
      specific set of operations is blocked on that file forever.  Unlike locks,
      seals can only be set, never removed.  Hence, once you verified a specific
      set of seals is set, you're guaranteed that no-one can perform the blocked
      operations on this file, anymore.
      
      An initial set of SEALS is introduced by this patch:
        - SHRINK: If SEAL_SHRINK is set, the file in question cannot be reduced
                  in size. This affects ftruncate() and open(O_TRUNC).
        - GROW: If SEAL_GROW is set, the file in question cannot be increased
                in size. This affects ftruncate(), fallocate() and write().
        - WRITE: If SEAL_WRITE is set, no write operations (besides resizing)
                 are possible. This affects fallocate(PUNCH_HOLE), mmap() and
                 write().
        - SEAL: If SEAL_SEAL is set, no further seals can be added to a file.
                This basically prevents the F_ADD_SEAL operation on a file and
                can be set to prevent others from adding further seals that you
                don't want.
      
      The described use-cases can easily use these seals to provide safe use
      without any trust-relationship:
      
        1) The graphics server can verify that a passed file-descriptor has
           SEAL_SHRINK set. This allows safe scanout, while the client is
           allowed to increase buffer size for window-resizing on-the-fly.
           Concurrent writes are explicitly allowed.
        2) For general-purpose IPC, both processes can verify that SEAL_SHRINK,
           SEAL_GROW and SEAL_WRITE are set. This guarantees that neither
           process can modify the data while the other side parses it.
           Furthermore, it guarantees that even with writable FDs passed to the
           peer, it cannot increase the size to hit memory-limits of the source
           process (in case the file-storage is accounted to the source).
      
      The new API is an extension to fcntl(), adding two new commands:
        F_GET_SEALS: Return a bitset describing the seals on the file. This
                     can be called on any FD if the underlying file supports
                     sealing.
        F_ADD_SEALS: Change the seals of a given file. This requires WRITE
                     access to the file and F_SEAL_SEAL may not already be set.
                     Furthermore, the underlying file must support sealing and
                     there may not be any existing shared mapping of that file.
                     Otherwise, EBADF/EPERM is returned.
                     The given seals are _added_ to the existing set of seals
                     on the file. You cannot remove seals again.
      
      The fcntl() handler is currently specific to shmem and disabled on all
      files. A file needs to explicitly support sealing for this interface to
      work. A separate syscall is added in a follow-up, which creates files that
      support sealing. There is no intention to support this on other
      file-systems. Semantics are unclear for non-volatile files and we lack any
      use-case right now. Therefore, the implementation is specific to shmem.

      mm: allow drivers to prevent new writable mappings · 4bb5f5d9
      David Herrmann authored
      This patch (of 6):
      
      The i_mmap_writable field counts existing writable mappings of an
      address_space.  To allow drivers to prevent new writable mappings, make
      this counter signed and prevent new writable mappings if it is negative.
      This is modelled after i_writecount and DENYWRITE.
      
      This will be required by the shmem-sealing infrastructure to prevent any
      new writable mappings after the WRITE seal has been set.  In case there
      exists a writable mapping, this operation will fail with EBUSY.
      
      Note that we rely on the fact that iff you already own a writable mapping,
      you can increase the counter without using the helpers.  This is the same
      that we do for i_writecount.

      The core mm code will provide a default gate area based on
      FIXADDR_USER_START and FIXADDR_USER_END if
      !defined(__HAVE_ARCH_GATE_AREA) && defined(AT_SYSINFO_EHDR).
      
      This default is only useful for ia64.  arm64, ppc, s390, sh, tile, 64-bit
      UML, and x86_32 have their own code just to disable it.  arm, 32-bit UML,
      and x86_64 have gate areas, but they have their own implementations.
      
      This gets rid of the default and moves the code into ia64.
      
      This should save some code on architectures without a gate area: it's now
      possible to inline the gate_area functions in the default case.

      Rather than have architectures #define ARCH_HAS_SG_CHAIN in an
      architecture specific scatterlist.h, make it a proper Kconfig option and
      use that instead.  At same time, remove the header files are are now

      shm: make exit_shm work proportional to task activity · ab602f79
      Jack Miller authored
      This is small set of patches our team has had kicking around for a few
      versions internally that fixes tasks getting hung on shm_exit when there
      are many threads hammering it at once.
      
      Anton wrote a simple test to cause the issue:
      
        http://ozlabs.org/~anton/junkcode/bust_shm_exit.c
      
      Before applying this patchset, this test code will cause either hanging
      tracebacks or pthread out of memory errors.
      
      After this patchset, it will still produce output like:
      
        root@somehost:~# ./bust_shm_exit 1024 160
        ...
        INFO: rcu_sched detected stalls on CPUs/tasks: {} (detected by 116, t=2111 jiffies, g=241, c=240, q=7113)
        INFO: Stall ended before state dump start
        ...
      
      But the task will continue to run along happily, so we consider this an
      improvement over hanging, even if it's a bit noisy.
      
      This patch (of 3):
      
      exit_shm obtains the ipc_ns shm rwsem for write and holds it while it
      walks every shared memory segment in the namespace.  Thus the amount of
      work is related to the number of shm segments in the namespace not the
      number of segments that might need to be cleaned.
      
      In addition, this occurs after the task has been notified the thread has
      exited, so the number of tasks waiting for the ns shm rwsem can grow
      without bound until memory is exausted.
      
      Add a list to the task struct of all shmids allocated by this task.  Init
      the list head in copy_process.  Use the ns->rwsem for locking.  Add
      segments after id is added, remove before removing from id.
      
      On unshare of NEW_IPCNS orphan any ids as if the task had exited, similar
      to handling of semaphore undo.
      
      I chose a define for the init sequence since its a simple list init,
      otherwise it would require a function call to avoid include loops between
      the semaphore code and the task struct.  Converting the list_del to
      list_del_init for the unshare cases would remove the exit followed by
      init, but I left it blow up if not inited.

      initramfs: support initramfs that is bigger than 2GiB · d97b07c5
      Yinghai Lu authored
      Now with 64bit bzImage and kexec tools, we support ramdisk that size is
      bigger than 2g, as we could put it above 4G.
      
      Found compressed initramfs image could not be decompressed properly.  It
      turns out that image length is int during decompress detection, and it
      will become < 0 when length is more than 2G.  Furthermore, during
      decompressing len as int is used for inbuf count, that has problem too.
      
      Change len to long, that should be ok as on 32 bit platform long is
      32bits.
      
      Tested with following compressed initramfs image as root with kexec.
      	gzip, bzip2, xz, lzma, lzop, lz4.
      run time for populate_rootfs():

      fork/exec: cleanup mm initialization · 41f727fd
      Vladimir Davydov authored
      mm initialization on fork/exec is spread all over the place, which makes
      the code look inconsistent.
      
      We have mm_init(), which is supposed to init/nullify mm's internals, but
      it doesn't init all the fields it should:
      
       - on fork ->mmap,mm_rb,vmacache_seqnum,map_count,mm_cpumask,locked_vm
         are zeroed in dup_mmap();
      
       - on fork ->pmd_huge_pte is zeroed in dup_mm(), immediately before
         calling mm_init();
      
       - ->cpu_vm_mask_var ptr is initialized by mm_init_cpumask(), which is
         called before mm_init() on both fork and exec;
      
       - ->context is initialized by init_new_context(), which is called after
         mm_init() on both fork and exec;
      
      Let's consolidate all the initializations in mm_init() to make the code
      look cleaner.
