* random32: rename random32 to prandomAkinobu Mita2012-12-175-37/+45
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This renames all random32 functions to have 'prandom_' prefix as follows: void prandom_seed(u32 seed); /* rename from srandom32() */ u32 prandom_u32(void); /* rename from random32() */ void prandom_seed_state(struct rnd_state *state, u64 seed); /* rename from prandom32_seed() */ u32 prandom_u32_state(struct rnd_state *state); /* rename from prandom32() */ The purpose of this renaming is to prevent some kernel developers from assuming that prandom32() and random32() might imply that only prandom32() was the one using a pseudo-random number generator by prandom32's "p", and the result may be a very embarassing security exposure. This concern was expressed by Theodore Ts'o. And furthermore, I'm going to introduce new functions for getting the requested number of pseudo-random bytes. If I continue to use both prandom32 and random32 prefixes for these functions, the confusion is getting worse. As a result of this renaming, "prandom_" is the common prefix for pseudo-random number library. Currently, srandom32() and random32() are preserved because it is difficult to rename too many users at once.

* aoe: allow comma separator in aoe_iflist valueEd Cashin2012-12-172-2/+2
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | By default, the aoe driver uses any ethernet interface for AoE, but the aoe_iflist module parameter provides a convenient way to limit AoE traffic to a specific list of local network interfaces. This change allows a list to be specified using the comma character as a separator. For example, modprobe aoe aoe_iflist=eth2,eth3 Before, it was inconvenient to get the quoting right in shell scripts when setting aoe_iflist to have more than one network interface.

* aoe: allow user to disable target failure timeoutEd Cashin2012-12-172-2/+6
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | With this change, the aoe driver treats the value zero as special for the aoe_deadsecs module parameter. Normally, this value specifies the number of seconds during which the driver will continue to attempt retransmits to an unresponsive AoE target. After aoe_deadsecs has elapsed, the aoe driver marks the aoe device as "down" and fails all I/O. The new meaning of an aoe_deadsecs of zero is for the driver to retransmit commands indefinitely.

* aoe: avoid races between device destruction and discoveryEd Cashin2012-12-173-63/+146
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This change avoids a race that could result in a NULL pointer derference following a WARNing from kobject_add_internal, "don't try to register things with the same name in the same directory." The problem was found with a test that forgets and discovers an aoe device in a loop: while test ! -r /tmp/stop; do aoe-flush -a aoe-discover done The race was between aoedev_flush taking aoedevs out of the devlist, allowing a new discovery of the same AoE target to take place before the driver gets around to calling sysfs_remove_group. Fixing that one revealed another race between do_open and add_disk, and this patch avoids that, too. The fix required some care, because for flushing (forgetting) an aoedev, some of the steps must be performed under lock and some must be able to sleep. Also, for discovering a new aoedev, some steps might sleep. The check for a bad aoedev pointer remains from a time when about half of this patch was done, and it was possible for the bdev->bd_disk->private_data to become corrupted. The check should be removed eventually, but it is not expected to add significant overhead, occurring in the aoeblk_open routine.

* aoe: improve handling of misbehaving network pathsEd Cashin2012-12-173-121/+268
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | An AoE target can have multiple network ports used for AoE, and in the aoe driver, those are tracked by the aoetgt struct. These changes allow the aoe driver to handle network paths, or aoetgts, that are not working well, compared to the others. Paths that do not get responses despite the retransmission of AoE commands are marked as "tainted", and non-tainted paths are preferred. Meanwhile, the aoe driver attempts to "probe" the tainted path in the background by issuing reads of LBA 0 that are padded out to full (possibly jumbo-frame) size. If the probes get responses, then the path is "redeemed", and its taint is removed. This mechanism has been shown to be helpful in transparently handling and recovering from real-world network "brown outs" in ways that the earlier "shoot the help-needing target in the head" mechanism could not.

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Before the aoe driver was an I/O request handler, it was a make_request-style block driver. Even so, there was a problem where sysfs expected a request queue to exist, so one was provided in commit 7135a71b19be ("aoe: allocate unused request_queue for sysfs"). During the transition to the request-handler style, a patch was merged that was based on a driver without the noop queue, and the noop queue remained in place after the patch was merged, even though a new functional queue was introduced by the patch, allocated through blk_init_queue. The user impact is a memory leak proportional to the number of AoE targets discovered. This patch removes the memory leak and cleans up vestiges of the old do-nothing queue from the aoeblk_gdalloc function.

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Commit f3b8e07af774 ("aoe: commands in retransmit queue use new destination on failure") omits the copying of the coarse-grained time when an AoE command was sent during the failover from one destination MAC address on the AoE target to another. The coarse-grained timing is only used when the system time changes or an unlikely length of time has passed since the sending of the AoE command. Users will not be impacted unless their system clock is very inaccurate or something unusual (e.g., 10 GbE link reset) happens during the period when the aoe driver is handling the failure of a port on the AoE target. Being effected will mean that an AoE target could be considered "down" too eagerly.

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | When one remote MAC address isn't working as a destination for AoE commands, the frames used to track information associated with the AoE commands are moved to a new aoetgt (defined by the tuple of {AoE major, AoE minor, target MAC address}). This patch makes sure that the frames on the queue for retransmits that need to be done are updated to use the new destination, so that retransmits will be sent through a working network path. Without this change, packets on the retransmit queue will be needlessly retransmitted to the unresponsive destination MAC, possibly causing premature target failure before there's time for the retransmit timer to run again, decide to retransmit again, and finally update the destination to a working MAC address on the AoE target.

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | These changes improve the accuracy of the decision about whether it's time to retransmit an AoE command by using the microsecond-resolution gettimeofday instead of jiffies. Because the system time can jump suddenly, the decision reverts to using jiffies if the high-resolution time difference is relatively large. Otherwise the AoE targets could be considered failed inappropriately.

* aoe: improve network congestion handlingEd Cashin2012-12-173-74/+121
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | The aoe driver already had some congestion handling, but it was limited in its ability to cope with the kind of congestion that can arise on more complex networks such as those involving paths through multiple ethernet switches. Some of the lessons from TCP's history of development can be applied to improving the congestion control and avoidance on AoE storage networks. These changes use familar concepts from Van Jacobson's "Congestion Avoidance and Control" paper from '88, without adding significant overhead. This patch depends on an upcoming patch that covers the failover case when AoE commands being retransmitted are transferred from one retransmit queue to another. Another upcoming patch increases the timing accuracy.

* exec: use -ELOOP for max recursion depthKees Cook2012-12-175-17/+6
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | To avoid an explosion of request_module calls on a chain of abusive scripts, fail maximum recursion with -ELOOP instead of -ENOEXEC. As soon as maximum recursion depth is hit, the error will fail all the way back up the chain, aborting immediately. This also has the side-effect of stopping the user's shell from attempting to reexecute the top-level file as a shell script. As seen in the dash source: if (cmd != path_bshell && errno == ENOEXEC) { *argv-- = cmd; *argv = cmd = path_bshell; goto repeat; } The above logic was designed for running scripts automatically that lacked the "#!" header, not to re-try failed recursion. On a legitimate -ENOEXEC, things continue to behave as the shell expects. Additionally, when tracking recursion, the binfmt handlers should not be involved. The recursion being tracked is the depth of calls through search_binary_handler(), so that function should be exclusively responsible for tracking the depth.

* proc: pid/status: show all supplementary groupsArtem Bityutskiy2012-12-171-1/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | We display a list of supplementary group for each process in /proc/<pid>/status. However, we show only the first 32 groups, not all of them. Although this is rare, but sometimes processes do have more than 32 supplementary groups, and this kernel limitation breaks user-space apps that rely on the group list in /proc/<pid>/status. Number 32 comes from the internal NGROUPS_SMALL macro which defines the length for the internal kernel "small" groups buffer. There is no apparent reason to limit to this value. This patch removes the 32 groups printing limit. The Linux kernel limits the amount of supplementary groups by NGROUPS_MAX, which is currently set to 65536. And this is the maximum count of groups we may possibly print. Signed-off-by: Artem Bityutskiy <artem.bityutskiy@linux.intel.com> Acked-by: Serge E.

* /proc/pid/status: add "Seccomp" fieldKees Cook2012-12-172-0/+10
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | It is currently impossible to examine the state of seccomp for a given process. While attaching with gdb and attempting "call prctl(PR_GET_SECCOMP,...)" will work with some situations, it is not reliable. If the process is in seccomp mode 1, this query will kill the process (prctl not allowed), if the process is in mode 2 with prctl not allowed, it will similarly be killed, and in weird cases, if prctl is filtered to return errno 0, it can look like seccomp is disabled. When reviewing the state of running processes, there should be a way to externally examine the seccomp mode. ("Did this build of Chrome end up using seccomp?" "Did my distro ship ssh with seccomp enabled?") This adds the "Seccomp" line to /proc/$pid/status.
