      net: Fix use after free by removing length arg from sk_data_ready callbacks. · 676d2369
      David S. Miller authored
      Several spots in the kernel perform a sequence like:
      
      	skb_queue_tail(&sk->s_receive_queue, skb);
      	sk->sk_data_ready(sk, skb->len);
      
      But at the moment we place the SKB onto the socket receive queue it
      can be consumed and freed up.  So this skb->len access is potentially
      to freed up memory.
      
      Furthermore, the skb->len can be modified by the consumer so it is
      possible that the value isn't accurate.
      
      And finally, no actual implementation of this callback actually uses
      the length argument.  And since nobody actually cared about it's
      value, lots of call sites pass arbitrary values in such as '0' and
      even '1'.
      
      So just remove the length argument from the callback, that way there
      is no confusion whatsoever and all of these use-after-free cases get
      fixed as a side effect.
      
      Based upon a patch by Eric Dumazet and his suggestion to audit this
      issue tree-wide.

      net: rework recvmsg handler msg_name and msg_namelen logic · f3d33426
      Hannes Frederic Sowa authored
      This patch now always passes msg->msg_namelen as 0. recvmsg handlers must
      set msg_namelen to the proper size <= sizeof(struct sockaddr_storage)
      to return msg_name to the user.
      
      This prevents numerous uninitialized memory leaks we had in the
      recvmsg handlers and makes it harder for new code to accidentally leak
      uninitialized memory.
      
      Optimize for the case recvfrom is called with NULL as address. We don't
      need to copy the address at all, so set it to NULL before invoking the
      recvmsg handler. We can do so, because all the recvmsg handlers must
      cope with the case a plain read() is called on them. read() also sets
      msg_name to NULL.
      
      Also document these changes in include/linux/net.h as suggested by David
      Miller.
      
      Changes since RFC:
      
      Set msg->msg_name = NULL if user specified a NULL in msg_name but had a
      non-null msg_namelen in verify_iovec/verify_compat_iovec. This doesn't
      affect sendto as it would bail out earlier while trying to copy-in the
      address. It also more naturally reflects the logic by the callers of
      verify_iovec.
      
      With this change in place I could remove "
      if (!uaddr || msg_sys->msg_namelen == 0)
      	msg->msg_name = NULL
      ".
      
      This change does not alter the user visible error logic as we ignore
      msg_namelen as long as msg_name is NULL.
      
      Also remove two unnecessary curly brackets in ___sys_recvmsg and change
      comments to netdev style.

      netrom: fix info leak via msg_name in nr_recvmsg() · 3ce5efad
      Mathias Krause authored
      In case msg_name is set the sockaddr info gets filled out, as
      requested, but the code fails to initialize the padding bytes of
      struct sockaddr_ax25 inserted by the compiler for alignment. Also
      the sax25_ndigis member does not get assigned, leaking four more
      bytes.
      
      Both issues lead to the fact that the code will leak uninitialized
      kernel stack bytes in net/socket.c.
      
      Fix both issues by initializing the memory with memset(0).

      hlist: drop the node parameter from iterators · b67bfe0d
      Sasha Levin authored
      I'm not sure why, but the hlist for each entry iterators were conceived
      
              list_for_each_entry(pos, head, member)
      
      The hlist ones were greedy and wanted an extra parameter:
      
              hlist_for_each_entry(tpos, pos, head, member)
      
      Why did they need an extra pos parameter? I'm not quite sure. Not only
      they don't really need it, it also prevents the iterator from looking
      exactly like the list iterator, which is unfortunate.
      
      Besides the semantic patch, there was some manual work required:
      
       - Fix up the actual hlist iterators in linux/list.h
       - Fix up the declaration of other iterators based on the hlist ones.
       - A very small amount of places were using the 'node' parameter, this
       was modified to use 'obj->member' instead.
       - Coccinelle didn't handle the hlist_for_each_entry_safe iterator
       properly, so those had to be fixed up manually.
      
      The semantic patch which is mostly the work of Peter Senna Tschudin is here:

      include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking... · 5a0e3ad6
      Tejun Heo authored
      include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking implicit slab.h inclusion from percpu.h
      
      percpu.h is included by sched.h and module.h and thus ends up being
      included when building most .c files.  percpu.h includes slab.h which
      in turn includes gfp.h making everything defined by the two files
      universally available and complicating inclusion dependencies.
      
      percpu.h -> slab.h dependency is about to be removed.  Prepare for
      this change by updating users of gfp and slab facilities include those
      headers directly instead of assuming availability.  As this conversion
      needs to touch large number of source files, the following script is
      used as the basis of conversion.
      
        http://userweb.kernel.org/~tj/misc/slabh-sweep.py
      
      The script does the followings.
      
      * Scan files for gfp and slab usages and update includes such that
        only the necessary includes are there.  ie. if only gfp is used,
        gfp.h, if slab is used, slab.h.
      
      * When the script inserts a new include, it looks at the include
        blocks and try to put the new include such that its order conforms
        to its surrounding.  It's put in the include block which contains
        core kernel includes, in the same order that the rest are ordered -
        alphabetical, Christmas tree, rev-Xmas-tree or at the end if there
        doesn't seem to be any matching order.
      
      * If the script can't find a place to put a new include (mostly
        because the file doesn't have fitting include block), it prints out
        an error message indicating which .h file needs to be added to the
        file.
      
      The conversion was done in the following steps.
      
      1. The initial automatic conversion of all .c files updated slightly
         over 4000 files, deleting around 700 includes and adding ~480 gfp.h
         and ~3000 slab.h inclusions.  The script emitted errors for ~400
         files.
      
      2. Each error was manually checked.  Some didn't need the inclusion,
         some needed manual addition while adding it to implementation .h or
         embedding .c file was more appropriate for others.  This step added
         inclusions to around 150 files.
      
      3. The script was run again and the output was compared to the edits
         from #2 to make sure no file was left behind.
      
      4. Several build tests were done and a couple of problems were fixed.
         e.g. lib/decompress_*.c used malloc/free() wrappers around slab
         APIs requiring slab.h to be added manually.
      
      5. The script was run on all .h files but without automatically
         editing them as sprinkling gfp.h and slab.h inclusions around .h
         files could easily lead to inclusion dependency hell.  Most gfp.h
         inclusion directives were ignored as stuff from gfp.h was usually
         wildly available and often used in preprocessor macros.  Each
         slab.h inclusion directive was examined and added manually as
         necessary.
      
      6. percpu.h was updated not to include slab.h.
      
      7. Build test were done on the following configurations and failures
         were fixed.  CONFIG_GCOV_KERNEL was turned off for all tests (as my
         distributed build env didn't work with gcov compiles) and a few
         more options had to be turned off depending on archs to make things
         build (like ipr on powerpc/64 which failed due to missing writeq).
      
         * x86 and x86_64 UP and SMP allmodconfig and a custom test config.
         * powerpc and powerpc64 SMP allmodconfig
         * sparc and sparc64 SMP allmodconfig
         * ia64 SMP allmodconfig
         * s390 SMP allmodconfig
         * alpha SMP allmodconfig
         * um on x86_64 SMP allmodconfig
      
      8. percpu.h modifications were reverted so that it could be applied as
         a separate patch and serve as bisection point.
      
      Given the fact that I had only a couple of failures from tests on step
      6, I'm fairly confident about the coverage of this conversion patch.
      If there is a breakage, it's likely to be something in one of the arch
      headers which should be easily discoverable easily on most builds of
      the specific arch.

      netdev: Allocate multiple queues for TX. · e8a0464c
      David S. Miller authored
      alloc_netdev_mq() now allocates an array of netdev_queue
      structures for TX, based upon the queue_count argument.
      
      Furthermore, all accesses to the TX queues are now vectored
      through the netdev_get_tx_queue() and netdev_for_each_tx_queue()
      interfaces.  This makes it easy to grep the tree for all
      things that want to get to a TX queue of a net device.
      
      Problem spots which are not really multiqueue aware yet, and
      only work with one queue, can easily be spotted by grepping
      for all netdev_get_tx_queue() calls that pass in a zero index.
