2011-05-03CRED: Fix load_flat_shared_library() to initialise bprm correctlyDavid Howells1-0/+8
Fix binfmt_flag's load_flat_shared_library() to initialise bprm correctly. Currently, prepare_binprm() is called with only .filename .file and .cred fields set in bprm, but the .cred_prepared and .per_clear fields at least need initialising.

2010-06-29flat: tweak default stack alignmentMike Frysinger1-5/+1
The recent commit 1f0ce8b3dd667dca7 ("mm: Move ARCH_SLAB_MINALIGN and ARCH_KMALLOC_MINALIGN to <linux/slab_def.h>") which moved the ARCH_SLAB_MINALIGN default into the global header inadvertently broke FLAT for a bunch of systems. Blackfin systems now fail on any FLAT exec with: Unable to read code+data+bss, errno 14 When your /init is a FLAT binary, obviously this can be annoying ;). This stems from the alignment usage in the FLAT loader. The behavior before was that FLAT would default to ARCH_SLAB_MINALIGN only if it was defined, and this was only defined by arches when they wanted a larger alignment value. Otherwise it'd default to pointer alignment. Arguably, this is kind of hokey that the FLAT is semi-abusing defines it shouldn't. So let's merge the two alignment requirements so the floor is never 0.

2010-06-04fs/binfmt_flat.c: split the stack & data alignmentsMike Frysinger1-8/+15
The stack and data have different alignment requirements, so don't force them to wear the same shoe. Increase the data alignment to match that which the elf2flt linker script has always been using: 0x20 bytes. Not only does this bring the kernel loader in line with the toolchain, but it also fixes a swath of gcc tests which try to force larger alignment values but randomly fail when the FLAT loader fails to deliver.

2010-01-29Split 'flush_old_exec' into two functionsLinus Torvalds1-0/+1
'flush_old_exec()' is the point of no return when doing an execve(), and it is pretty badly misnamed. It doesn't just flush the old executable environment, it also starts up the new one. Which is very inconvenient for things like setting up the new personality, because we want the new personality to affect the starting of the new environment, but at the same time we do _not_ want the new personality to take effect if flushing the old one fails. As a result, the x86-64 '32-bit' personality is actually done using this insane "I'm going to change the ABI, but I haven't done it yet" bit (TIF_ABI_PENDING), with SET_PERSONALITY() not actually setting the personality, but just the "pending" bit, so that "flush_thread()" can do the actual personality magic. This patch in no way changes any of that insanity, but it does split the 'flush_old_exec()' function up into a preparatory part that can fail (still called flush_old_exec()), and a new part that will actually set up the new exec environment (setup_new_exec()). All callers are changed to trivially comply with the new world order. Signed-off-by: H. Peter Anvin <hpa@zytor.com> Cc: stable@kernel.org Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>

2009-05-29flat: fix data sections alignmentOskar Schirmer1-15/+31
The flat loader uses an architecture's flat_stack_align() to align the stack but assumes word-alignment is enough for the data sections. However, on the Xtensa S6000 we have registers up to 128bit width which can be used from userspace and therefor need userspace stack and data-section alignment of at least this size. This patch drops flat_stack_align() and uses the same alignment that is required for slab caches, ARCH_SLAB_MINALIGN, or wordsize if it's not defined by the architecture. It also fixes m32r which was obviously kaput, aligning an uninitialized stack entry instead of the stack pointer.

2008-11-14CRED: Make execve() take advantage of copy-on-write credentialsDavid Howells1-1/+1
Make execve() take advantage of copy-on-write credentials, allowing it to set up the credentials in advance, and then commit the whole lot after the point of no return. This patch and the preceding patches have been tested with the LTP SELinux testsuite. This patch makes several logical sets of alteration: (1) execve(). The credential bits from struct linux_binprm are, for the most part, replaced with a single credentials pointer (bprm->cred). This means that all the creds can be calculated in advance and then applied at the point of no return with no possibility of failure. I would like to replace bprm->cap_effective with: cap_isclear(bprm->cap_effective) but this seems impossible due to special behaviour for processes of pid 1 (they always retain their parent's capability masks where normally they'd be changed - see cap_bprm_set_creds()). The following sequence of events now happens: (a) At the start of do_execve, the current task's cred_exec_mutex is locked to prevent PTRACE_ATTACH from obsoleting the calculation of creds that we make. (a) prepare_exec_creds() is then called to make a copy of the current task's credentials and prepare it. This copy is then assigned to bprm->cred. This renders security_bprm_alloc() and security_bprm_free() unnecessary, and so they've been removed. (b) The determination of unsafe execution is now performed immediately after (a) rather than later on in the code. The result is stored in bprm->unsafe for future reference. (c) prepare_binprm() is called, possibly multiple times. (i) This applies the result of set[ug]id binaries to the new creds attached to bprm->cred. Personality bit clearance is recorded, but now deferred on the basis that the exec procedure may yet fail. (ii) This then calls the new security_bprm_set_creds(). This should calculate the new LSM and capability credentials into *bprm->cred. This folds together security_bprm_set() and parts of security_bprm_apply_creds() (these two have been removed). Anything that might fail must be done at this point. (iii) bprm->cred_prepared is set to 1. bprm->cred_prepared is 0 on the first pass of the security calculations, and 1 on all subsequent passes. This allows SELinux in (ii) to base its calculations only on the initial script and not on the interpreter. (d) flush_old_exec() is called to commit the task to execution. This performs the following steps with regard to credentials: (i) Clear pdeath_signal and set dumpable on certain circumstances that may not be covered by commit_creds(). (ii) Clear any bits in current->personality that were deferred from (c.i). (e) install_exec_creds() [compute_creds() as was] is called to install the new credentials. This performs the following steps with regard to credentials: (i) Calls security_bprm_committing_creds() to apply any security requirements, such as flushing unauthorised files in SELinux, that must be done before the credentials are changed. This is made up of bits of security_bprm_apply_creds() and security_bprm_post_apply_creds(), both of which have been removed. This function is not allowed to fail; anything that might fail must have been done in (c.ii). (ii) Calls commit_creds() to apply the new credentials in a single assignment (more or less). Possibly pdeath_signal and dumpable should be part of struct creds. (iii) Unlocks the task's cred_replace_mutex, thus allowing PTRACE_ATTACH to take place. (iv) Clears The bprm->cred pointer as the credentials it was holding are now immutable. (v) Calls security_bprm_committed_creds() to apply any security alterations that must be done after the creds have been changed. SELinux uses this to flush signals and signal handlers. (f) If an error occurs before (d.i), bprm_free() will call abort_creds() to destroy the proposed new credentials and will then unlock cred_replace_mutex. No changes to the credentials will have been made. (2) LSM interface. A number of functions have been changed, added or removed: (*) security_bprm_alloc(), ->bprm_alloc_security() (*) security_bprm_free(), ->bprm_free_security() Removed in favour of preparing new credentials and modifying those. (*) security_bprm_apply_creds(), ->bprm_apply_creds() (*) security_bprm_post_apply_creds(), ->bprm_post_apply_creds() Removed; split between security_bprm_set_creds(), security_bprm_committing_creds() and security_bprm_committed_creds(). (*) security_bprm_set(), ->bprm_set_security() Removed; folded into security_bprm_set_creds(). (*) security_bprm_set_creds(), ->bprm_set_creds() New. The new credentials in bprm->creds should be checked and set up as appropriate. bprm->cred_prepared is 0 on the first call, 1 on the second and subsequent calls. (*) security_bprm_committing_creds(), ->bprm_committing_creds() (*) security_bprm_committed_creds(), ->bprm_committed_creds() New. Apply the security effects of the new credentials. This includes closing unauthorised files in SELinux. This function may not fail. When the former is called, the creds haven't yet been applied to the process; when the latter is called, they have. The former may access bprm->cred, the latter may not. (3) SELinux. SELinux has a number of changes, in addition to those to support the LSM interface changes mentioned above: (a) The bprm_security_struct struct has been removed in favour of using the credentials-under-construction approach. (c) flush_unauthorized_files() now takes a cred pointer and passes it on to inode_has_perm(), file_has_perm() and dentry_open().

2008-10-16uclinux: fix gzip header parsing in binfmt_flat.cVolodymyr G. Lukiianyk1-3/+3
There are off-by-one errors in decompress_exec() when calculating the length of optional "original file name" and "comment" fields: the "ret" index is not incremented when terminating '\0' character is reached. The check of the buffer overflow (after an "extra-field" length was taken into account) is also fixed. I've encountered this off-by-one error when tried to reuse gzip-header-parsing part of the decompress_exec() function. There was an "original file name" field in the payload (with miscalculated length) and zlib_inflate() returned Z_DATA_ERROR. But after the fix similar to this one all worked fine.

This change has no effect, since all the binfmt modules' load_binary functions did the call at the end on success, and now search_binary_handler() does it immediately after return if successful. We consolidate the repeated code, and binfmt modules no longer need to import ptrace_notify().

2008-04-29procfs task exe symlinkMatt Helsley1-1/+2
The kernel implements readlink of /proc/pid/exe by getting the file from the first executable VMA. Then the path to the file is reconstructed and reported as the result. Because of the VMA walk the code is slightly different on nommu systems. This patch avoids separate /proc/pid/exe code on nommu systems. Instead of walking the VMAs to find the first executable file-backed VMA we store a reference to the exec'd file in the mm_struct. That reference would prevent the filesystem holding the executable file from being unmounted even after unmapping the VMAs. So we track the number of VM_EXECUTABLE VMAs and drop the new reference when the last one is unmapped. This avoids pinning the mounted filesystem.

2007-10-17core_pattern: ignore RLIMIT_CORE if core_pattern is a pipeNeil Horman1-2/+2
For some time /proc/sys/kernel/core_pattern has been able to set its output destination as a pipe, allowing a user space helper to receive and intellegently process a core. This infrastructure however has some shortcommings which can be enhanced. Specifically: 1) The coredump code in the kernel should ignore RLIMIT_CORE limitation when core_pattern is a pipe, since file system resources are not being consumed in this case, unless the user application wishes to save the core, at which point the app is restricted by usual file system limits and restrictions. 2) The core_pattern code should be able to parse and pass options to the user space helper as an argv array. The real core limit of the uid of the crashing proces should also be passable to the user space helper (since it is overridden to zero when called). 3) Some miscellaneous bugs need to be cleaned up (specifically the recognition of a recursive core dump, should the user mode helper itself crash. Also, the core dump code in the kernel should not wait for the user mode helper to exit, since the same context is responsible for writing to the pipe, and a read of the pipe by the user mode helper will result in a deadlock. This patch: Remove the check of RLIMIT_CORE if core_pattern is a pipe. In the event that core_pattern is a pipe, the entire core will be fed to the user mode helper.

2006-06-25[PATCH] uclinux: use PER_LINUX_32BIT in binfmt_flatMalcolm Parsons1-1/+1
binfmt_flat.c calls set_personality with PER_LINUX as the personality. On the arm architecture this results in the program running in 26bit usermode. PER_LINUX_32BIT should be used instead. This doesn't affect other architectures that use binfmt_flat. Signed-off-by: Greg Ungerer <gerg@uclinux.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
2006-05-21[PATCH] binfmt_flat: don't check for EMFILEAndrew Morton1-21/+9
Bernd Schmidt points out that binfmt_flat is now leaving the exec file open while the application runs. This offsets all the application's fd numbers. We should have closed the file within exec(), not at exit()-time. But there doesn't seem to be a lot of point in doing all this just to avoid going over RLIMIT_NOFILE by one fd for a few microseconds. So take the EMFILE checking out again. This will cause binfmt_flat to again fail LTP's exec-should-return-EMFILE-when-fdtable-is-full test. That test appears to be wrong anyway - Open Group specs say nothing about exec() returning EMFILE.

2006-03-25[PATCH] flat binary loader doesn't check fd table fullLuke Yang1-19/+54
In binfmt_flat.c, the flat binary loader should check file descriptor table and install the fd on the file. Convert the function to single-exit and fix this bug.

2006-01-10[PATCH] uclinux: delay binfmt_flat traceGreg Ungerer1-7/+10
Modify the initial trace output (which is based on flags in the binary header) so that it is not done until after the magic number check. This may well not be a flat format binary, so the flags could be invalid. (Prime example, running a script). Changes prompted by patches from Stuart Hughs.

2005-10-29[PATCH] mm: mm_init set_mm_countersHugh Dickins1-1/+0
How is anon_rss initialized? In dup_mmap, and by mm_alloc's memset; but that's not so good if an mm_counter_t is a special type. And how is rss initialized? By set_mm_counter, all over the place. Come on, we just need to initialize them both at once by set_mm_counter in mm_init (which follows the memcpy when forking).

Use MAP_PRIVATE when calling mmap to get memory for the code region. The flat loader was using MAP_SHARED, but underlying changes to the MMUless mmap means this is now wrong. Signed-off-by: Greg Ungerer <gerg@uclinux.com> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>

Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!
