      keys: fix race with concurrent install_user_keyrings() · 0da9dfdd
      David Howells authored
      This fixes CVE-2013-1792.
      There is a race in install_user_keyrings() that can cause a NULL pointer
      dereference when called concurrently for the same user if the uid and
      uid-session keyrings are not yet created.  It might be possible for an
      unprivileged user to trigger this by calling keyctl() from userspace in
      parallel immediately after logging in.
      Assume that we have two threads both executing lookup_user_key(), both
      	===============================	===============================
      					==>call install_user_keyrings();
      	if (!cred->user->session_keyring)
      	==>call install_user_keyrings()
      					user->uid_keyring = uid_keyring;
      	if (user->uid_keyring)
      		return 0;
      	key = cred->user->session_keyring [== NULL]
      					user->session_keyring = session_keyring;
      	atomic_inc(&key->usage); [oops]
      At the point thread A dereferences cred->user->session_keyring, thread B
      hasn't updated user->session_keyring yet, but thread A assumes it is
      populated because install_user_keyrings() returned ok.
      The race window is really small but can be exploited if, for example,
      thread B is interrupted or preempted after initializing uid_keyring, but
      before doing setting session_keyring.
      This couldn't be reproduced on a stock kernel.  However, after placing
      systemtap probe on 'user->session_keyring = session_keyring;' that
      introduced some delay, the kernel could be crashed reliably.
      Fix this by checking both pointers before deciding whether to return.
      Alternatively, the test could be done away with entirely as it is checked
      inside the mutex - but since the mutex is global, that may not be the best

      xen: arm: mandate EABI and use generic atomic operations. · 85323a99
      Ian Campbell authored
      Rob Herring has observed that c81611c4
       "xen: event channel arrays are
      xen_ulong_t and not unsigned long" introduced a compile failure when building
      without CONFIG_AEABI:
      /tmp/ccJaIZOW.s: Assembler messages:
      /tmp/ccJaIZOW.s:831: Error: even register required -- `ldrexd r5,r6,[r4]'
      Will Deacon pointed out that this is because OABI does not require even base
      registers for 64-bit values. We can avoid this by simply using the existing
      atomic64_xchg operation and the same containerof trick as used by the cmpxchg
      macros. However since this code is used on memory which is shared with the
      hypervisor we require proper atomic instructions and cannot use the generic
      atomic64 callbacks (which are based on spinlocks), therefore add a dependency
      on !GENERIC_ATOMIC64. Since we already depend on !CPU_V6 there isn't much
      downside to this.
      While thinking about this we also observed that OABI has different struct
      alignment requirements to EABI, which is a problem for hypercall argument
      structs which are shared with the hypervisor and which must be in EABI layout.
      Since I don't expect people to want to run OABI kernels on Xen depend on
      CONFIG_AEABI explicitly too (although it also happens to be enforced by the
      !GENERIC_ATOMIC64 requirement too).
