      CRED: Fix __task_cred()'s lockdep check and banner comment · 8f92054e
      David Howells authored
      Fix __task_cred()'s lockdep check by removing the following validation
      as commit_creds() does not take the tasklist_lock, and nor do most of the
      functions that call it, so this check is pointless and it can prevent
      detection of the RCU lock not being held if the tasklist_lock is held.
      Instead, add the following validation condition:
      	task->exit_state >= 0
      to permit the access if the target task is dead and therefore unable to change
      its own credentials.
      Fix __task_cred()'s comment to:
       (1) discard the bit that says that the caller must prevent the target task
           from being deleted.  That shouldn't need saying.
       (2) Add a comment indicating the result of __task_cred() should not be passed
           directly to get_cred(), but rather than get_task_cred() should be used
      Also put a note into the documentation to enforce this point there too.

      CRED: Fix get_task_cred() and task_state() to not resurrect dead credentials · de09a977
      David Howells authored
      It's possible for get_task_cred() as it currently stands to 'corrupt' a set of
      credentials by incrementing their usage count after their replacement by the
      task being accessed.
      What happens is that get_task_cred() can race with commit_creds():
      	TASK_1			TASK_2			RCU_CLEANER
      	__cred = __task_cred(TASK_2)
      				old_cred = TASK_2->real_cred
      				TASK_2->real_cred = ...
      		[__cred->usage == 0]
      		[__cred->usage == 1]
      							[__cred->usage == 1]
      However, since a tasks credentials are generally not changed very often, we can
      reasonably make use of a loop involving reading the creds pointer and using
      atomic_inc_not_zero() to attempt to increment it if it hasn't already hit zero.
      If successful, we can safely return the credentials in the knowledge that, even
      if the task we're accessing has released them, they haven't gone to the RCU
      cleanup code.
      We then change task_state() in procfs to use get_task_cred() rather than
      calling get_cred() on the result of __task_cred(), as that suffers from the
      same problem.
      Without this change, a BUG_ON in __put_cred() or in put_cred_rcu() can be
      tripped when it is noticed that the usage count is not zero as it ought to be,
      for example:
