git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/pmladek/printk Pull printk updates from Petr Mladek: - Add a console_msg_format command line option: The value "default" keeps the old "[time stamp] text\n" format. The value "syslog" allows to see the syslog-like "<log level>[timestamp] text" format. This feature was requested by people doing regression tests, for example, 0day robot. They want to have both filtered and full logs at hands. - Reduce the risk of softlockup: Pass the console owner in a busy loop. This is a new approach to the old problem. It was first proposed by Steven Rostedt on Kernel Summit 2017. It marks a context in which the console_lock owner calls console drivers and could not sleep. On the other side, printk() callers could detect this state and use a busy wait instead of a simple console_trylock(). Finally, the console_lock owner checks if there is a busy waiter at the end of the special context and eventually passes the console_lock to the waiter. The hand-off works surprisingly well and helps in many situations. Well, there is still a possibility of the softlockup, for example, when the flood of messages stops and the last owner still has too much to flush. There is increasing number of people having problems with printk-related softlockups. We might eventually need to get better solution. Anyway, this looks like a good start and promising direction. - Do not allow to schedule in console_unlock() called from printk(): This reverts an older controversial commit. The reschedule helped to avoid softlockups. But it also slowed down the console output. This patch is obsoleted by the new console waiter logic described above. In fact, the reschedule made the hand-off less effective. - Deprecate "%pf" and "%pF" format specifier: It was needed on ia64, ppc64 and parisc64 to dereference function descriptors and show the real function address. It is done transparently by "%ps" and "pS" format specifier now. Sergey Senozhatsky found that all the function descriptors were in a special elf section and could be easily detected. - Remove printk_symbol() API: It has been obsoleted by "%pS" format specifier, and this change helped to remove few continuous lines and a less intuitive old API. - Remove redundant memsets: Sergey removed unnecessary memset when processing printk.devkmsg command line option. * 'for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/pmladek/printk: (27 commits) printk: drop redundant devkmsg_log_str memsets printk: Never set console_may_schedule in console_trylock() printk: Hide console waiter logic into helpers printk: Add console owner and waiter logic to load balance console writes kallsyms: remove print_symbol() function checkpatch: add pF/pf deprecation warning symbol lookup: introduce dereference_symbol_descriptor() parisc64: Add .opd based function descriptor dereference powerpc64: Add .opd based function descriptor dereference ia64: Add .opd based function descriptor dereference sections: split dereference_function_descriptor() openrisc: Fix conflicting types for _exext and _stext lib: do not use print_symbol() irq debug: do not use print_symbol() sysfs: do not use print_symbol() drivers: do not use print_symbol() x86: do not use print_symbol() unicore32: do not use print_symbol() sh: do not use print_symbol() mn10300: do not use print_symbol() ...

2018-01-26module/retpoline: Warn about missing retpoline in moduleAndi Kleen1-0/+11
There's a risk that a kernel which has full retpoline mitigations becomes vulnerable when a module gets loaded that hasn't been compiled with the right compiler or the right option. To enable detection of that mismatch at module load time, add a module info string "retpoline" at build time when the module was compiled with retpoline support. This only covers compiled C source, but assembler source or prebuilt object files are not checked. If a retpoline enabled kernel detects a non retpoline protected module at load time, print a warning and report it in the sysfs vulnerability file.

2018-01-15ftrace/module: Move ftrace_release_mod() to ddebug_cleanup labelNamit Gupta1-6/+1
ftrace_module_init happen after dynamic_debug_setup, it is desired that cleanup should be called after this label however in current implementation it is called in free module label,ie:even though ftrace in not initialized, from so many fail case ftrace_release_mod() will be called and unnecessary traverse the whole list. In below patch we moved ftrace_release_mod() from free_module label to ddebug_cleanup label. that is the best possible location, other solution is to make new label to ftrace_release_mod() but since ftrace_module_init() is not return with minimum changes it should be in ddebug_cleanup label.

2018-01-12error-injection: Separate error-injection from kprobeMasami Hiramatsu1-4/+4
Since error-injection framework is not limited to be used by kprobes, nor bpf. Other kernel subsystems can use it freely for checking safeness of error-injection, e.g. livepatch, ftrace etc. So this separate error-injection framework from kprobes. Some differences has been made: - "kprobe" word is removed from any APIs/structures. - BPF_ALLOW_ERROR_INJECTION() is renamed to ALLOW_ERROR_INJECTION() since it is not limited for BPF too. - CONFIG_FUNCTION_ERROR_INJECTION is the config item of this feature. It is automatically enabled if the arch supports error injection feature for kprobe or ftrace etc. Signed-off-by: Masami Hiramatsu <mhiramat@kernel.org> Reviewed-by: Josef Bacik <jbacik@fb.com> Signed-off-by: Alexei Starovoitov <ast@kernel.org>
2018-01-09sections: split dereference_function_descriptor()Sergey Senozhatsky1-0/+6
There are two format specifiers to print out a pointer in symbolic format: '%pS/%ps' and '%pF/%pf'. On most architectures, the two mean exactly the same thing, but some architectures (ia64, ppc64, parisc64) use an indirect pointer for C function pointers, where the function pointer points to a function descriptor (which in turn contains the actual pointer to the code). The '%pF/%pf, when used appropriately, automatically does the appropriate function descriptor dereference on such architectures. The "when used appropriately" part is tricky. Basically this is a subtle ABI detail, specific to some platforms, that made it to the API level and people can be unaware of it and miss the whole "we need to dereference the function" business out. [1] proves that point (note that it fixes only '%pF' and '%pS', there might be '%pf' and '%ps' cases as well). It appears that we can handle everything within the affected arches and make '%pS/%ps' smart enough to retire '%pF/%pf'. Function descriptors live in .opd elf section and all affected arches (ia64, ppc64, parisc64) handle it properly for kernel and modules. So we, technically, can decide if the dereference is needed by simply looking at the pointer: if it belongs to .opd section then we need to dereference it. The kernel and modules have their own .opd sections, obviously, that's why we need to split dereference_function_descriptor() and use separate kernel and module dereference arch callbacks. This patch does the first step, it a) adds dereference_kernel_function_descriptor() function. b) adds a weak alias to dereference_module_function_descriptor() function. So, for the time being, we will have: 1) dereference_function_descriptor() A generic function, that simply dereferences the pointer. There is bunch of places that call it: kgdbts, init/main.c, extable, etc. 2) dereference_kernel_function_descriptor() A function to call on kernel symbols that does kernel .opd section address range test. 3) dereference_module_function_descriptor() A function to call on modules' symbols that does modules' .opd section address range test.

See https://lwn.net/Articles/88052/ from June 2004. To expose the required load address information, Jonathan added the sections subdirectory for every module in /sys/modules, and made them S_IRUGO - readable by everybody. It was a more innocent time, plus those S_IRxxx macro names are a lot more confusing than the octal numbers are, so maybe it wasn't even intentional. But here we are, thirteen years later, and I'll just change it to S_IRUSR instead. Let's see if anybody even notices.

2017-11-08module: export module signature enforcement statusBruno E. O. Meneguele1-0/+10
A static variable sig_enforce is used as status var to indicate the real value of CONFIG_MODULE_SIG_FORCE, once this one is set the var will hold true, but if the CONFIG is not set the status var will hold whatever value is present in the module.sig_enforce kernel cmdline param: true when =1 and false when =0 or not present. Considering this cmdline param take place over the CONFIG value when it's not set, other places in the kernel could misbehave since they would have only the CONFIG_MODULE_SIG_FORCE value to rely on.

ddebug_remove_module() use mod->name to find the ddebug_table of the module and remove it. But dynamic_debug_setup() use the first _ddebug->modname to create ddebug_table for the module. It's ok when the _ddebug->modname is the same with the mod->name. But livepatch module is special, it may contain _ddebugs of other modules, the modname of which is different from the name of livepatch module. So ddebug_remove_module() can't use mod->name to find the right ddebug_table and remove it. It can cause kernel crash when we cat the file <debugfs>/dynamic_debug/control.

2017-05-25kobject: support passing in variables for synthetic ueventsPeter Rajnoha1-4/+1
This patch makes it possible to pass additional arguments in addition to uevent action name when writing /sys/.../uevent attribute. These additional arguments are then inserted into generated synthetic uevent as additional environment variables. Before, we were not able to pass any additional uevent environment variables for synthetic uevents. This made it hard to identify such uevents properly in userspace to make proper distinction between genuine uevents originating from kernel and synthetic uevents triggered from userspace. Also, it was not possible to pass any additional information which would make it possible to optimize and change the way the synthetic uevents are processed back in userspace based on the originating environment of the triggering action in userspace. With the extra additional variables, we are able to pass through this extra information needed and also it makes it possible to synchronize with such synthetic uevents as they can be clearly identified back in userspace. The format for writing the uevent attribute is following: ACTION [UUID [KEY=VALUE ...] There's no change in how "ACTION" is recognized - it stays the same ("add", "change", "remove"). The "ACTION" is the only argument required to generate synthetic uevent, the rest of arguments, that this patch adds support for, are optional. The "UUID" is considered as transaction identifier so it's possible to use the same UUID value for one or more synthetic uevents in which case we logically group these uevents together for any userspace listeners. The "UUID" is expected to be in "xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx" format where "x" is a hex digit. The value appears in uevent as "SYNTH_UUID=xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx" environment variable. The "KEY=VALUE" pairs can contain alphanumeric characters only. It's possible to define zero or more more pairs - each pair is then delimited by a space character " ". Each pair appears in synthetic uevents as "SYNTH_ARG_KEY=VALUE" environment variable. That means the KEY name gains "SYNTH_ARG_" prefix to avoid possible collisions with existing variables. To pass the "KEY=VALUE" pairs, it's also required to pass in the "UUID" part for the synthetic uevent first. If "UUID" is not passed in, the generated synthetic uevent gains "SYNTH_UUID=0" environment variable automatically so it's possible to identify this situation in userspace when reading generated uevent and so we can still make a difference between genuine and synthetic uevents.

2017-05-23module: Add module name to modinfoKees Cook1-7/+22
Accessing the mod structure (e.g. for mod->name) prior to having completed check_modstruct_version() can result in writing garbage to the error logs if the layout of the mod structure loaded from disk doesn't match the running kernel's mod structure layout. This kind of mismatch will become much more likely if a kernel is built with different randomization seed for the struct layout randomization plugin.

2017-05-08mm, vmalloc: use __GFP_HIGHMEM implicitlyMichal Hocko1-1/+1
__vmalloc* allows users to provide gfp flags for the underlying allocation. This API is quite popular $ git grep "=[[:space:]]__vmalloc\|return[[:space:]]*__vmalloc" | wc -l 77 The only problem is that many people are not aware that they really want to give __GFP_HIGHMEM along with other flags because there is really no reason to consume precious lowmemory on CONFIG_HIGHMEM systems for pages which are mapped to the kernel vmalloc space. About half of users don't use this flag, though. This signals that we make the API unnecessarily too complex. This patch simply uses __GFP_HIGHMEM implicitly when allocating pages to be mapped to the vmalloc space. Current users which add __GFP_HIGHMEM are simplified and drop the flag.

From a fixes perspective, the most important is likely the auditd connection tracking RCU fix; it was a rather brain dead bug that I'll take the blame for, but thankfully it didn't seem to affect many people (only one report).

2017-03-26lockdep: Fix per-cpu static objectsPeter Zijlstra1-1/+5
Since commit 383776fa7527 ("locking/lockdep: Handle statically initialized PER_CPU locks properly") we try to collapse per-cpu locks into a single class by giving them all the same key. For this key we choose the canonical address of the per-cpu object, which would be the offset into the per-cpu area. This has two problems: - there is a case where we run !0 lock->key through static_obj() and expect this to pass; it doesn't for canonical pointers. - 0 is a valid canonical address. Cure both issues by redefining the canonical address as the address of the per-cpu variable on the boot CPU. Since I didn't want to rely on CPU0 being the boot-cpu, or even existing at all, track the boot CPU in a variable.

2017-03-16locking/lockdep: Handle statically initialized PER_CPU locks properlyThomas Gleixner1-12/+24
If a PER_CPU struct which contains a spin_lock is statically initialized via: DEFINE_PER_CPU(struct foo, bla) = { .lock = __SPIN_LOCK_UNLOCKED(bla.lock) }; then lockdep assigns a seperate key to each lock because the logic for assigning a key to statically initialized locks is to use the address as the key. With per CPU locks the address is obvioulsy different on each CPU. That's wrong, because all locks should have the same key. To solve this the following modifications are required: 1) Extend the is_kernel/module_percpu_addr() functions to hand back the canonical address of the per CPU address, i.e. the per CPU address minus the per CPU offset. 2) Check the lock address with these functions and if the per CPU check matches use the returned canonical address as the lock key, so all per CPU locks have the same key. 3) Move the static_obj(key) check into look_up_lock_class() so this check can be avoided for statically initialized per CPU locks. That's required because the canonical address fails the static_obj(key) check for obvious reasons.

We've now separated that content out into its own file "extable.h" so now move over to that and where possible, avoid all the extra header content in module.h that we don't really need to compile these non-modular files. Note: init/main.c still needs module.h for __init_or_module kernel/extable.c still needs module.h for is_module_text_address ...and so we don't get the benefit of removing module.h from the cpp feed for these two files, unlike the almost universal 1:1 exchange of module.h for extable.h we were able to do in the arch dirs.

2017-02-07arch: Rename CONFIG_DEBUG_RODATA and CONFIG_DEBUG_MODULE_RONXLaura Abbott1-3/+3
Both of these options are poorly named. The features they provide are necessary for system security and should not be considered debug only. Change the names to CONFIG_STRICT_KERNEL_RWX and CONFIG_STRICT_MODULE_RWX to better describe what these options do.
