      seccomp: Fix tracer exit notifications during fatal signals · 485a252a
      Kees Cook authored
      This fixes a ptrace vs fatal pending signals bug as manifested in
      seccomp now that seccomp was reordered to happen after ptrace. The
      short version is that seccomp should not attempt to call do_exit()
      while fatal signals are pending under a tracer. The existing code was
      trying to be as defensively paranoid as possible, but it now ends up
      confusing ptrace. Instead, the syscall can just be skipped (which solves
      the original concern that the do_exit() was addressing) and normal signal
      handling, tracer notification, and process death can happen.
      Paraphrasing from the original bug report:
      If a tracee task is in a PTRACE_EVENT_SECCOMP trap, or has been resumed
      after such a trap but not yet been scheduled, and another task in the
      thread-group calls exit_group(), then the tracee task exits without the
      ptracer receiving a PTRACE_EVENT_EXIT notification. Test case here:
      The bug happens because when __seccomp_filter() detects
      fatal_signal_pending(), it calls do_exit() without dequeuing the fatal
      signal. When do_exit() sends the PTRACE_EVENT_EXIT notification and
      that task is descheduled, __schedule() notices that there is a fatal
      signal pending and changes its state from TASK_TRACED to TASK_RUNNING.
      That prevents the ptracer's waitpid() from returning the ptrace event.
      A more detailed analysis is here:

      mm/usercopy: get rid of CONFIG_DEBUG_STRICT_USER_COPY_CHECKS · 0d025d27
      Josh Poimboeuf authored
      There are three usercopy warnings which are currently being silenced for
      gcc 4.6 and newer:
      1) "copy_from_user() buffer size is too small" compile warning/error
         This is a static warning which happens when object size and copy size
         are both const, and copy size > object size.  I didn't see any false
         positives for this one.  So the function warning attribute seems to
         be working fine here.
         Note this scenario is always a bug and so I think it should be
         changed to *always* be an error, regardless of
      2) "copy_from_user() buffer size is not provably correct" compile warning
         This is another static warning which happens when I enable
         __compiletime_object_size() for new compilers (and
         CONFIG_DEBUG_STRICT_USER_COPY_CHECKS).  It happens when object size
         is const, but copy size is *not*.  In this case there's no way to
         compare the two at build time, so it gives the warning.  (Note the
         warning is a byproduct of the fact that gcc has no way of knowing
         whether the overflow function will be called, so the call isn't dead
         code and the warning attribute is activated.)
         So this warning seems to only indicate "this is an unusual pattern,
         maybe you should check it out" rather than "this is a bug".
         I get 102(!) of these warnings with allyesconfig and the
         __compiletime_object_size() gcc check removed.  I don't know if there
         are any real bugs hiding in there, but from looking at a small
         sample, I didn't see any.  According to Kees, it does sometimes find
         real bugs.  But the false positive rate seems high.
      3) "Buffer overflow detected" runtime warning
         This is a runtime warning where object size is const, and copy size >
         object size.
      All three warnings (both static and runtime) were completely disabled
      for gcc 4.6 with the following commit:
        2fb0815c ("gcc4: disable __compiletime_object_size for GCC 4.6+")
      That commit mistakenly assumed that the false positives were caused by a
      gcc bug in __compiletime_object_size().  But in fact,
      __compiletime_object_size() seems to be working fine.  The false
      positives were instead triggered by #2 above.  (Though I don't have an
      explanation for why the warnings supposedly only started showing up in
      gcc 4.6.)
      So remove warning #2 to get rid of all the false positives, and re-enable
      warnings #1 and #3 by reverting the above commit.
      Furthermore, since #1 is a real bug which is detected at compile time,
      upgrade it to always be an error.
      Having done all that, CONFIG_DEBUG_STRICT_USER_COPY_CHECKS is no longer

       "Two fixes for cgroup.
         - There still was a hole in enforcing cpuset rules, fixed by Li.
         - The recent switch to global percpu_rwseom for threadgroup locking
           revealed a couple issues in how percpu_rwsem is implemented and
           used by cgroup.  Balbir found that the read locking section was too
           wide unnecessarily including operations which can often depend on
           IOs.  With percpu_rwsem updates (coming through a different tree)
           and reduction of read locking section, all the reported locking
           latency issues, including the android one, are resolved.
        It looks like we can keep global percpu_rwsem locking for now.  If
        there actually are cases which can't be resolved, we can go back to
        more complex per-signal_struct locking"
