2006-11-04Revert unintentional "volatile" changes in ipc/msg.cLinus Torvalds1-1/+1
Commit 5a06a363ef48444186f18095ae1b932dddbbfa89 ("[PATCH] ipc/msg.c: clean up coding style") breaks fakeroot on Alpha (variously hangs or oopses), according to a report by Falk Hueffner. The fact that the code seems to rely on compiler access ordering through the use of "volatile" is a pretty certain sign that the code has locking problems, and we should fix those properly and then remove the whole "volatile" entirely. But in the meantime, the movement of "volatile" was unintentional, and should be reverted.

2006-11-03[PATCH] Fix ipc entries removalPavel Emelianov1-0/+1
Fix two issuses related to ipc_ids->entries freeing. 1. When freeing ipc namespace we need to free entries allocated with ipc_init_ids(). 2. When removing old entries in grow_ary() ipc_rcu_putref() may be called on entries set to &ids->nullentry earlier in ipc_init_ids(). This is almost impossible without namespaces, but with them this situation becomes possible. Found during OpenVZ testing after obvious leaks in beancounters.

2006-06-20[PATCH] update of IPC audit record cleanupLinda Knippers1-4/+5
The following patch addresses most of the issues with the IPC_SET_PERM records as described in: https://www.redhat.com/archives/linux-audit/2006-May/msg00010.html and addresses the comments I received on the record field names. To summarize, I made the following changes: 1. Changed sys_msgctl() and semctl_down() so that an IPC_SET_PERM record is emitted in the failure case as well as the success case. This matches the behavior in sys_shmctl(). I could simplify the code in sys_msgctl() and semctl_down() slightly but it would mean that in some error cases we could get an IPC_SET_PERM record without an IPC record and that seemed odd. 2. No change to the IPC record type, given no feedback on the backward compatibility question. 3. Removed the qbytes field from the IPC record. It wasn't being set and when audit_ipc_obj() is called from ipcperms(), the information isn't available. If we want the information in the IPC record, more extensive changes will be necessary. Since it only applies to message queues and it isn't really permission related, it doesn't seem worth it. 4. Removed the obj field from the IPC_SET_PERM record. This means that the kern_ipc_perm argument is no longer needed. 5. Removed the spaces and renamed the IPC_SET_PERM field names. Replaced iuid and igid fields with ouid and ogid in the IPC record. I tested this with the lspp.22 kernel on an x86_64 box. I believe it applies cleanly on the latest kernel. -- ljk Signed-off-by: Linda Knippers <linda.knippers@hp.com> Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>
2006-05-01[PATCH] Rework of IPC auditingSteve Grubb1-1/+10
1) The audit_ipc_perms() function has been split into two different functions: - audit_ipc_obj() - audit_ipc_set_perm() There's a key shift here... The audit_ipc_obj() collects the uid, gid, mode, and SElinux context label of the current ipc object. This audit_ipc_obj() hook is now found in several places. Most notably, it is hooked in ipcperms(), which is called in various places around the ipc code permforming a MAC check. Additionally there are several places where *checkid() is used to validate that an operation is being performed on a valid object while not necessarily having a nearby ipcperms() call. In these locations, audit_ipc_obj() is called to ensure that the information is captured by the audit system. The audit_set_new_perm() function is called any time the permissions on the ipc object changes. In this case, the NEW permissions are recorded (and note that an audit_ipc_obj() call exists just a few lines before each instance). 2) Support for an AUDIT_IPC_SET_PERM audit message type. This allows for separate auxiliary audit records for normal operations on an IPC object and permissions changes. Note that the same struct audit_aux_data_ipcctl is used and populated, however there are separate audit_log_format statements based on the type of the message. Finally, the AUDIT_IPC block of code in audit_free_aux() was extended to handle aux messages of this new type. No more mem leaks I hope ;-) Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>

2006-03-20[PATCH] Capture selinux subject/object context information.Dustin Kirkland1-2/+3
This patch extends existing audit records with subject/object context information. Audit records associated with filesystem inodes, ipc, and tasks now contain SELinux label information in the field "subj" if the item is performing the action, or in "obj" if the item is the receiver of an action. These labels are collected via hooks in SELinux and appended to the appropriate record in the audit code. This additional information is required for Common Criteria Labeled Security Protection Profile (LSPP).

2005-04-16Linux-2.6.12-rc2Linus Torvalds1-0/+862
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!
