2013-01-04ipc: simplify message copyingStanislav Kinsbursky2-16/+14
Remove the redundant and confusing fill_copy(). Also add copy_msg() check for error. In this case exit from the function have to be done instead of break, because further code interprets any error as EAGAIN. Also define copy_msg() for the case when CONFIG_CHECKPOINT_RESTORE is disabled. Signed-off-by: Stanislav Kinsbursky <skinsbursky@parallels.com> Cc: "Eric W.

2013-01-04ipc: simplify free_copy() callStanislav Kinsbursky1-6/+8
Passing and checking of msgflg to free_copy() is redundant. This patch sets copy to NULL on declaration instead and checks for non-NULL in free_copy(). Note: in case of copy allocation failure, error is returned immediately. So no need to check for IS_ERR() in free_copy(). Signed-off-by: Stanislav Kinsbursky <skinsbursky@parallels.com> Cc: "Eric W.

2013-01-04ipc: introduce message queue copy featureStanislav Kinsbursky3-2/+101
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). Notes: 1) Return -ENOSYS if MSG_COPY is specified, but CONFIG_CHECKPOINT_RESTORE is not set.

2013-01-04ipc: add sysctl to specify desired next object idStanislav Kinsbursky3-4/+45
Add 3 new variables and sysctls to tune them (by one "next_id" variable for messages, semaphores and shared memory respectively). This variable can be used to set desired id for next allocated IPC object. By default it's equal to -1 and old behaviour is preserved. If this variable is non-negative, then desired idr will be extracted from it and used as a start value to search for free IDR slot. Notes: 1) this patch doesn't guarantee that the new object will have desired id. So it's up to user space how to handle new object with wrong id. 2) After a sucessful id allocation attempt, "next_id" will be set back to -1 (if it was non-negative).

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/ebiederm/user-namespace Pull user namespace changes from Eric Biederman: "While small this set of changes is very significant with respect to containers in general and user namespaces in particular. The user space interface is now complete. This set of changes adds support for unprivileged users to create user namespaces and as a user namespace root to create other namespaces. The tyranny of supporting suid root preventing unprivileged users from using cool new kernel features is broken. This set of changes completes the work on setns, adding support for the pid, user, mount namespaces. This set of changes includes a bunch of basic pid namespace cleanups/simplifications. Of particular significance is the rework of the pid namespace cleanup so it no longer requires sending out tendrils into all kinds of unexpected cleanup paths for operation. At least one case of broken error handling is fixed by this cleanup. The files under /proc/<pid>/ns/ have been converted from regular files to magic symlinks which prevents incorrect caching by the VFS, ensuring the files always refer to the namespace the process is currently using and ensuring that the ptrace_mayaccess permission checks are always applied. The files under /proc/<pid>/ns/ have been given stable inode numbers so it is now possible to see if different processes share the same namespaces. Through the David Miller's net tree are changes to relax many of the permission checks in the networking stack to allowing the user namespace root to usefully use the networking stack. Similar changes for the mount namespace and the pid namespace are coming through my tree. Two small changes to add user namespace support were commited here adn in David Miller's -net tree so that I could complete the work on the /proc/<pid>/ns/ files in this tree. Work remains to make it safe to build user namespaces and 9p, afs, ceph, cifs, coda, gfs2, ncpfs, nfs, nfsd, ocfs2, and xfs so the Kconfig guard remains in place preventing that user namespaces from being built when any of those filesystems are enabled.

2012-12-14userns: Require CAP_SYS_ADMIN for most uses of setns.Eric W. Biederman1-1/+2
Andy Lutomirski <luto@amacapital.net> found a nasty little bug in the permissions of setns. With unprivileged user namespaces it became possible to create new namespaces without privilege. However the setns calls were relaxed to only require CAP_SYS_ADMIN in the user nameapce of the targed namespace. Which made the following nasty sequence possible. pid = clone(CLONE_NEWUSER | CLONE_NEWNS); if (pid == 0) { /* child */ system("mount --bind /home/me/passwd /etc/passwd"); } else if (pid != 0) { /* parent */ char path[PATH_MAX]; snprintf(path, sizeof(path), "/proc/%u/ns/mnt"); fd = open(path, O_RDONLY); setns(fd, 0); system("su -"); } Prevent this possibility by requiring CAP_SYS_ADMIN in the current user namespace when joing all but the user namespace.

2012-12-11mm: support more pagesizes for MAP_HUGETLB/SHM_HUGETLBAndi Kleen1-1/+2
There was some desire in large applications using MAP_HUGETLB or SHM_HUGETLB to use 1GB huge pages on some mappings, and stay with 2MB on others. This is useful together with NUMA policy: use 2MB interleaving on some mappings, but 1GB on local mappings. This patch extends the IPC/SHM syscall interfaces slightly to allow specifying the page size. It borrows some upper bits in the existing flag arguments and allows encoding the log of the desired page size in addition to the *_HUGETLB flag. When 0 is specified the default size is used, this makes the change fully compatible. Extending the internal hugetlb code to handle this is straight forward. Instead of a single mount it just keeps an array of them and selects the right mount based on the specified page size. When no page size is specified it uses the mount of the default page size. The change is not visible in /proc/mounts because internal mounts don't appear there. It also has very little overhead: the additional mounts just consume a super block, but not more memory when not used. I also exported the new flags to the user headers (they were previously under __KERNEL__). Right now only symbols for x86 and some other architecture for 1GB and 2MB are defined. The interface should already work for all other architectures though. Only architectures that define multiple hugetlb sizes actually need it (that is currently x86, tile, powerpc). However tile and powerpc have user configurable hugetlb sizes, so it's not easy to add defines. A program on those architectures would need to query sysfs and use the appropiate log2.

2012-11-20proc: Usable inode numbers for the namespace file descriptors.Eric W. Biederman2-0/+18
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 impossible. 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. Signed-off-by: Eric W. Biederman <ebiederm@xmission.com>

2012-10-12vfs: define struct filename and have getname() return itJeff Layton1-6/+7
getname() is intended to copy pathname strings from userspace into a kernel buffer. The result is just a string in kernel space. It would however be quite helpful to be able to attach some ancillary info to the string. For instance, we could attach some audit-related info to reduce the amount of audit-related processing needed. When auditing is enabled, we could also call getname() on the string more than once and not need to recopy it from userspace. This patchset converts the getname()/putname() interfaces to return a struct instead of a string. For now, the struct just tracks the string in kernel space and the original userland pointer for it. Later, we'll add other information to the struct as it becomes convenient. Signed-off-by: Jeff Layton <jlayton@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>
2012-10-12audit: set the name_len in audit_inode for parent lookupsJeff Layton1-4/+4
Currently, this gets set mostly by happenstance when we call into audit_inode_child. While that might be a little more efficient, it seems wrong. If the syscall ends up failing before audit_inode_child ever gets called, then you'll have an audit_names record that shows the full path but has the parent inode info attached. Fix this by passing in a parent flag when we call audit_inode that gets set to the value of LOOKUP_PARENT. We can then fix up the pathname for the audit entry correctly from the get-go. While we're at it, clean up the no-op macro for audit_inode in the !CONFIG_AUDITSYSCALL case. Signed-off-by: Jeff Layton <jlayton@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>

Commit d6629859b36d ("ipc/mqueue: improve performance of send/recv") and ce2d52cc ("ipc/mqueue: add rbtree node caching support") introduced an rbtree of message priorities, and usage of rb_init_node() to initialize the corresponding nodes. As it turns out, rb_init_node() is unnecessary here, as the nodes are fully initialized on insertion by rb_link_node() and the code doesn't access nodes that aren't inserted on the rbtree.

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/ebiederm/user-namespace Pull user namespace changes from Eric Biederman: "This is a mostly modest set of changes to enable basic user namespace support. This allows the code to code to compile with user namespaces enabled and removes the assumption there is only the initial user namespace. Everything is converted except for the most complex of the filesystems: autofs4, 9p, afs, ceph, cifs, coda, fuse, gfs2, ncpfs, nfs, ocfs2 and xfs as those patches need a bit more review. The strategy is to push kuid_t and kgid_t values are far down into subsystems and filesystems as reasonable. Leaving the make_kuid and from_kuid operations to happen at the edge of userspace, as the values come off the disk, and as the values come in from the network. Letting compile type incompatible compile errors (present when user namespaces are enabled) guide me to find the issues. The most tricky areas have been the places where we had an implicit union of uid and gid values and were storing them in an unsigned int. Those places were converted into explicit unions. I made certain to handle those places with simple trivial patches. Out of that work I discovered we have generic interfaces for storing quota by projid. I had never heard of the project identifiers before. Adding full user namespace support for project identifiers accounts for most of the code size growth in my git tree. Ultimately there will be work to relax privlige checks from "capable(FOO)" to "ns_capable(user_ns, FOO)" where it is safe allowing root in a user names to do those things that today we only forbid to non-root users because it will confuse suid root applications. While I was pushing kuid_t and kgid_t changes deep into the audit code I made a few other cleanups. I capitalized on the fact we process netlink messages in the context of the message sender. I removed usage of NETLINK_CRED, and started directly using current->tty.

The msgsnd and msgrcv system calls use size_t to represent the size of the message being transferred. POSIX states that values of msgsz greater than SSIZE_MAX cause the result to be implementation-defined. On Linux, this equates to returning -EINVAL if (long) msgsz < 0. For compat tasks where !CONFIG_ARCH_WANT_OLD_COMPAT_IPC and compat_size_t is smaller than size_t, negative size values passed from userspace will be interpreted as positive values by do_msg{rcv,snd} and will fail to exit early with -EINVAL. This patch changes the compat prototypes for msg{rcv,snd} so that the message size is represented as a compat_ssize_t, which we cast to the native ssize_t type for the core IPC code.

For architectures (such as AArch64) that do not require the internal calling conventions provided by this option, but have a compat target where the C library passes the IPC_64 flag explicitly, compat_ipc_parse_version no longer strips out the flag before calling the native system call implementation, resulting in unknown SHM/IPC commands and -EINVAL being returned to userspace. This patch separates the selection of the internal calling conventions for the IPC syscalls from the version parsing, allowing architectures to select __ARCH_WANT_COMPAT_IPC_PARSE_VERSION if they want to use version parsing whilst retaining the newer syscall calling conventions.

2012-07-30ipc: add COMPAT_SHMLBA supportWill Deacon3-7/+12
If the SHMLBA definition for a native task differs from the definition for a compat task, the do_shmat() function would need to handle both. This patch introduces COMPAT_SHMLBA, which is used by the compat shmat syscall when calling the ipc code and allows architectures such as AArch64 (where the native SHMLBA is 64k but the compat (AArch32) definition is 16k) to provide the correct semantics for compat IPC system calls.

2012-06-07ipc: shm: restore MADV_REMOVE functionality on shared memory segmentsWill Deacon1-0/+12
Commit 17cf28afea2a ("mm/fs: remove truncate_range") removed the truncate_range inode operation in favour of the fallocate file operation. When using SYSV IPC shared memory segments, calling madvise with the MADV_REMOVE advice on an area of shared memory will attempt to invoke the .fallocate function for the shm_file_operations, which is NULL and therefore returns -EOPNOTSUPP to userspace. The previous behaviour would inherit the inode_operations from the underlying tmpfs file and invoke truncate_range there. This patch restores the previous behaviour by wrapping the underlying fallocate function in shm_fallocate, as we do for fsync.

2012-05-31ipc/mqueue: add rbtree node caching supportDoug Ledford1-23/+81
When I wrote the first patch that added the rbtree support for message queue insertion, it sped up the case where the queue was very full drastically from the original code. It, however, slowed down the case where the queue was empty (not drastically though). This patch caches the last freed rbtree node struct so we can quickly reuse it when we get a new message. This is the common path for any queue that very frequently goes from 0 to 1 then back to 0 messages in queue. Andrew Morton didn't like that we were doing a GFP_ATOMIC allocation in msg_insert, so this patch attempts to speculatively allocate a new node struct outside of the spin lock when we know we need it, but will still fall back to a GFP_ATOMIC allocation if it has to. Once I added the caching, the necessary various ret = ; spin_unlock gyrations in mq_timedsend were getting pretty ugly, so this also slightly refactors that function to streamline the flow of the code and the function exit. Finally, while working on getting performance back I made sure that all of the node structs were always fully initialized when they were first used, rendering the use of kzalloc unnecessary and a waste of CPU cycles. The net result of all of this is: 1) We will avoid a GFP_ATOMIC allocation when possible, but fall back on it when necessary. 2) We will speculatively allocate a node struct using GFP_KERNEL if our cache is empty (and save the struct to our cache if it's still empty after we have obtained the spin lock). 3) The performance of the common queue empty case has significantly improved and is now much more in line with the older performance for this case. The performance changes are: Old mqueue new mqueue new mqueue + caching queue empty send/recv 305/288ns 349/318ns 310/322ns I don't think we'll ever be able to get the recv performance back, but that's because the old recv performance was a direct result and consequence of the old methods abysmal send performance. The recv path simply must do more so that the send path does not incur such a penalty under higher queue depths. As it turns out, the new caching code also sped up the various queue full cases relative to my last patch. That could be because of the difference between the syscall path in 3.3.4-rc5 and 3.3.4-rc6, or because of the change in code flow in the mq_timedsend routine. Regardless, I'll take it. It wasn't huge, and I *would* say it was within the margin for error, but after many repeated runs what I'm seeing is that the old numbers trend slightly higher (about 10 to 20ns depending on which test is the one running).

2012-05-31ipc/mqueue: strengthen checks on mqueue creationDoug Ledford1-9/+18
We already check the mq attr struct if it's passed in, but now that the admin can set system wide defaults separate from maximums, it's actually possible to set the defaults to something that would overflow. So, if there is no attr struct passed in to the open call, check the default values. While we are at it, simplify mq_attr_ok() by making it return 0 or an error condition, so that way if we add more tests to it later, we have the option of what error should be returned instead of the calling location having to pick a possibly inaccurate error code.

2012-05-31ipc/mqueue: correct mq_attr_ok testDoug Ledford1-3/+8
While working on the other parts of the mqueue stuff, I noticed that the calculation for overflow in mq_attr_ok didn't actually match reality (this is especially true since my last patch which changed how we account memory slightly). In particular, we used to test for overflow using: msgs * msgsize + msgs * sizeof(struct msg_msg *) That was never really correct because each message we allocate via load_msg() is actually a struct msg_msg followed by the data for the message (and if struct msg_msg + data exceeds PAGE_SIZE we end up allocating struct msg_msgseg structs too, but accounting for them would get really tedious, so let's ignore those...they're only a pointer in size anyway). This patch updates the calculation to be more accurate in regards to maximum possible memory consumption by the mqueue.

2012-05-31ipc/mqueue: improve performance of send/recvDoug Ledford1-43/+130
The existing implementation of the POSIX message queue send and recv functions is, well, abysmal. Even worse than abysmal. I submitted a patch to increase the maximum POSIX message queue limit to 65536 due to customer needs, however, upon looking over the send/recv implementation, I realized that my customer needs help with that too even if they don't know it. The basic problem is that, given the fairly typical use case scenario for a large queue of queueing lots of messages all at the same priority (I verified with my customer that this is indeed what their app does), the msg_insert routine is basically a frikkin' bubble sort. I mean, whoa, that's *so* middle school. OK, OK, to not slam the original author too much, I'm sure they didn't envision a queue depth of 50,000+ messages. No one would think that moving elements in an array, one at a time, and dereferencing each pointer in that array to check priority of the message being pointed too, again one at a time, for 50,000+ times would be good. So let's assume that, as is typical, the users have found a way to break our code simply by using it in a way we didn't envision. Fair enough. "So, just how broken is it?", you ask. I wondered the same thing, so I wrote an app to let me know. It's my next patch. It gave me some interesting results. Here's what it tested: Interference with other apps - In continuous mode, the app just sits there and hits a message queue forever, while you go do something productive on another terminal using other CPUs. You then measure how long it takes you to do that something productive. Then you restart the app in fake continuous mode, and it sits in a tight loop on a CPU while you repeat your tests. The whole point of this is to keep one CPU tied up (so it can't be used in your other work) but in one case tied up hitting the mqueue code so we can see the effect of walking that 65,528 element array one pointer at a time on the global CPU cache. If it's bad, then it will slow down your app on the other CPUs just by polluting cache mercilessly. In the fake case, it will be in a tight loop, but not polluting cache. Testing the mqueue subsystem directly - Here we just run a number of tests to see how the mqueue subsystem performs under different conditions. A couple conditions are known to be worst case for the old system, and some routines, so this tests all of them. So, on to the results already: Subsystem/Test Old New Time to compile linux kernel (make -j12 on a 6 core CPU) Running mqueue test user 49m10.744s user 45m26.294s sys 5m51.924s sys 4m59.894s total 55m02.668s total 50m26.188s Running fake test user 45m32.686s user 45m18.552s sys 5m12.465s sys 4m56.468s total 50m45.151s total 50m15.020s % slowdown from mqueue cache thrashing ~8% ~.5% Avg time to send/recv (in nanoseconds per message) when queue empty 305/288 349/318 when queue full (65528 messages) constant priority 526589/823 362/314 increasing priority 403105/916 495/445 decreasing priority 73420/594 482/409 random priority 280147/920 546/436 Time to fill/drain queue (65528 messages, in seconds) constant priority 17.37/.12 .13/.12 increasing priority 4.14/.14 .21/.18 decreasing priority 12.93/.13 .21/.18 random priority 8.88/.16 .22/.17 So, I think the results speak for themselves. It's possible this implementation could be improved by cacheing at least one priority level in the node tree (that would bring the queue empty performance more in line with the old implementation), but this works and is *so* much better than what we had, especially for the common case of a single priority in use, that further refinements can be in follow on patches.

Commit b231cca4381e ("message queues: increase range limits") changed mqueue default value when attr parameter is specified NULL from hard coded value to fs.mqueue.{msg,msgsize}_max sysctl value. This made large side effect. When user need to use two mqueue applications 1) using !NULL attr parameter and it require big message size and 2) using NULL attr parameter and only need small size message, app (1) require to raise fs.mqueue.msgsize_max and app (2) consume large memory size even though it doesn't need. Doug Ledford propsed to switch back it to static hard coded value. However it also has a compatibility problem. Some applications might started depend on the default value is tunable.

2012-05-31ipc/mqueue: update maximums for the mqueue subsystemDoug Ledford1-2/+9
Commit b231cca4381e ("message queues: increase range limits") changed the maximum size of a message in a message queue from INT_MAX to 8192*128. Unfortunately, we had customers that relied on a size much larger than 8192*128 on their production systems. After reviewing POSIX, we found that it is silent on the maximum message size. We did find a couple other areas in which it was not silent. Fix up the mqueue maximums so that the customer's system can continue to work, and document both the POSIX and real world requirements in ipc_namespace.h so that we don't have this issue crop back up. Also, commit 9cf18e1dd74cd0 ("ipc: HARD_MSGMAX should be higher not lower on 64bit") fiddled with HARD_MSGMAX without realizing that the number was intentionally in place to limit the msg queue depth to one that was small enough to kmalloc an array of pointers (hence why we divided 128k by sizeof(long)). If we wish to meet POSIX requirements, we have no choice but to change our allocation to a vmalloc instead (at least for the large queue size case). With that, it's possible to increase our allowed maximum to the POSIX requirements (or more if we choose).

2012-05-31ipc/mqueue: switch back to using non-max values on createDoug Ledford1-2/+3
Commit b231cca4381e ("message queues: increase range limits") changed how we create a queue that does not include an attr struct passed to open so that it creates the queue with whatever the maximum values are. However, if the admin has set the maximums to allow flexibility in creating a queue (aka, both a large size and large queue are allowed, but combined they create a queue too large for the RLIMIT_MSGQUEUE of the user), then attempts to create a queue without an attr struct will fail. Switch back to using acceptable defaults regardless of what the maximums are. Note: so far, we only know of a few applications that rely on this behavior (specifically, set the maximums in /proc, then run the application which calls mq_open() without passing in an attr struct, and the application expects the newly created message queue to have the maximum sizes that were set in /proc used on the mq_open() call, and all of those applications that we know of are actually part of regression test suites that were coded to do something like this: for size in 4096 65536 $((1024 * 1024)) $((16 * 1024 * 1024)); do echo $size > /proc/sys/fs/mqueue/msgsize_max mq_open || echo "Error opening mq with size $size" done These test suites that depend on any behavior like this are broken. The concept that programs should rely upon the system wide maximum in order to get their desired results instead of simply using a attr struct to specify what they want is fundamentally unfriendly programming practice for any multi-tasking OS. Fixing this will break those few apps that we know of (and those app authors recognize the brokenness of their code and the need to fix it). However, the following patch "mqueue: separate mqueue default value" allows a workaround in the form of new knobs for the default msg queue creation parameters for any software out there that we don't already know about that might rely on this behavior at the moment.

2012-05-31ipc/mqueue: cleanup definition names and locationsDoug Ledford1-23/+8
Since commit b231cca4381e ("message queues: increase range limits") on Oct 18, 2008, calls to mq_open() that did not pass in an attribute struct and expected to get default values for the size of the queue and the max message size now get the system wide maximums instead of hardwired defaults like they used to get. This was uncovered when one of the earlier patches in this patch set increased the default system wide maximums at the same time it increased the hard ceiling on the system wide maximums (a customer specifically needed the hard ceiling brought back up, the new ceiling that commit b231cca4381e introduced was too low for their production systems). By increasing the default maximums and not realising they were tied to any attempt to create a message queue without an attribute struct, I had inadvertently made it such that all message queue creation attempts without an attribute struct were failing because the new default maximums would create a queue that exceeded the default rlimit for message queue bytes. As a result, the system wide defaults were brought back down to their previous levels, and the system wide ceilings on the maximums were raised to meet the customer's needs. However, the fact that the no attribute struct behavior of mq_open() could be broken by changing the system wide maximums for message queues was seen as fundamentally broken itself. So we hardwired the no attribute case back like it used to be. But, then we realized that on the very off chance that some piece of software in the wild depended on that behavior, we could work around that issue by adding two new knobs to /proc that allowed setting the defaults for message queues created without an attr struct separately from the system wide maximums. What is not an option IMO is to leave the current behavior in place. No piece of software should ever rely on setting the system wide maximums in order to get a desired message queue. Such a reliance would be so fundamentally multitasking OS unfriendly as to not really be tolerable. Fortunately, we don't know of any software in the wild that uses this except for a regression test program that caught the issue in the first place. If there is though, we have made accommodations with the two new /proc knobs (and that's all the accommodations such fundamentally broken software can be allowed).. This patch: The various defines for minimums and maximums of the sysctl controllable mqueue values are scattered amongst different files and named inconsistently. Move them all into ipc_namespace.h and make them have consistent names. Additionally, make the number of queues per namespace also have a minimum and maximum and use the same sysctl function as the other two settable variables.
