    IB/core: Enforce PKey security on QPs · d291f1a6

    Add new LSM hooks to allocate and free security contexts and check for
    permission to access a PKey.
    Allocate and free a security context when creating and destroying a QP.
    This context is used for controlling access to PKeys.
    When a request is made to modify a QP that changes the port, PKey index,
    or alternate path, check that the QP has permission for the PKey in the
    PKey table index on the subnet prefix of the port. If the QP is shared
    make sure all handles to the QP also have access.
    Store which port and PKey index a QP is using. After the reset to init
    transition the user can modify the port, PKey index and alternate path
    independently. So port and PKey settings changes can be a merge of the
    previous settings and the new ones.
    In order to maintain access control if there are PKey table or subnet
    prefix change keep a list of all QPs are using each PKey index on
    each port. If a change occurs all QPs using that device and port must
    have access enforced for the new cache settings.
    These changes add a transaction to the QP modify process. Association
    with the old port and PKey index must be maintained if the modify fails,
    and must be removed if it succeeds. Association with the new port and
    PKey index must be established prior to the modify and removed if the
    modify fails.
    1. When a QP is modified to a particular Port, PKey index or alternate
       path insert that QP into the appropriate lists.
    2. Check permission to access the new settings.
    3. If step 2 grants access attempt to modify the QP.
    4a. If steps 2 and 3 succeed remove any prior associations.
    4b. If ether fails remove the new setting associations.
    If a PKey table or subnet prefix changes walk the list of QPs and
    check that they have permission. If not send the QP to the error state
    and raise a fatal error event. If it's a shared QP make sure all the
    QPs that share the real_qp have permission as well. If the QP that
    owns a security structure is denied access the security structure is
    marked as such and the QP is added to an error_list. Once the moving
    the QP to error is complete the security structure mark is cleared.
    Maintaining the lists correctly turns QP destroy into a transaction.
    The hardware driver for the device frees the ib_qp structure, so while
    the destroy is in progress the ib_qp pointer in the ib_qp_security
    struct is undefined. When the destroy process begins the ib_qp_security
    structure is marked as destroying. This prevents any action from being
    taken on the QP pointer. After the QP is destroyed successfully it
    could still listed on an error_list wait for it to be processed by that
    flow before cleaning up the structure.
    If the destroy fails the QPs port and PKey settings are reinserted into
    the appropriate lists, the destroying flag is cleared, and access control
    is enforced, in case there were any cache changes during the destroy
    To keep the security changes isolated a new file is used to hold security
    related functionality.
