      netlabel: check for IPV4MASK in addrinfo_get · f88b4c01
      Sean Tranchetti authored
      netlbl_unlabel_addrinfo_get() assumes that if it finds the
      NLBL_UNLABEL_A_IPV4ADDR attribute, it must also have the
      NLBL_UNLABEL_A_IPV4MASK attribute as well. However, this is
      not necessarily the case as the current checks in
      netlbl_unlabel_staticadd() and friends are not sufficent to
      enforce this.
      
      If passed a netlink message with NLBL_UNLABEL_A_IPV4ADDR,
      NLBL_UNLABEL_A_IPV6ADDR, and NLBL_UNLABEL_A_IPV6MASK attributes,
      these functions will all call netlbl_unlabel_addrinfo_get() which
      will then attempt dereference NULL when fetching the non-existent
      NLBL_UNLABEL_A_IPV4MASK attribute:
      
      Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 0

      License cleanup: add SPDX GPL-2.0 license identifier to files with no license · b2441318
      Greg Kroah-Hartman authored
      Many source files in the tree are missing licensing information, which
      makes it harder for compliance tools to determine the correct license.
      
      By default all files without license information are under the default
      license of the kernel, which is GPL version 2.
      
      Update the files which contain no license information with the 'GPL-2.0'
      SPDX license identifier.  The SPDX identifier is a legally binding
      shorthand, which can be used instead of the full boiler plate text.
      
      This patch is based on work done by Thomas Gleixner and Kate Stewart and
      Philippe Ombredanne.
      
      How this work was done:
      
      Patches were generated and checked against linux-4.14-rc6 for a subset of
      the use cases:
       - file had no licensing information it it.
       - file was a */uapi/* one with no licensing information in it,
       - file was a */uapi/* one with existing licensing information,
      
      Further patches will be generated in subsequent months to fix up cases
      where non-standard license headers were used, and references to license
      had to be inferred by heuristics based on keywords.
      
      The analysis to determine which SPDX License Identifier to be applied to
      a file was done in a spreadsheet of side by side results from of the
      output of two independent scanners (ScanCode & Windriver) producing SPDX
      tag:value files created by Philippe Ombredanne.  Philippe prepared the
      base worksheet, and did an initial spot review of a few 1000 files.
      
      The 4.13 kernel was the starting point of the analysis with 60,537 files
      assessed.  Kate Stewart did a file by file comparison of the scanner
      results in the spreadsheet to determine which SPDX license identifier(s)
      to be applied to the file. She confirmed any determination that was not
      immediately clear with lawyers working with the Linux Foundation.
      
      Criteria used to select files for SPDX license identifier tagging was:
       - Files considered eligible had to be source code files.
       - Make and config files were included as candidates if they contained >5
         lines of source
       - File already had some variant of a license header in it (even if <5
         lines).
      
      All documentation files were explicitly excluded.
      
      The following heuristics were used to determine which SPDX license
      identifiers to apply.
      
       - when both scanners couldn't find any license traces, file was
         considered to have no license information in it, and the top level
         COPYING file license applied.
      
         For non */uapi/* files that summary was:
      
         SPDX license identifier                            # files
         ---------------------------------------------------|-------
         GPL-2.0                                              11139
      
         and resulted in the first patch in this series.
      
         If that file was a */uapi/* path one, it was "GPL-2.0 WITH
         Linux-syscall-note" otherwise it was "GPL-2.0".  Results of that was:
      
         SPDX license identifier                            # files
         ---------------------------------------------------|-------
         GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note                        930
      
         and resulted in the second patch in this series.
      
       - if a file had some form of licensing information in it, and was one
         of the */uapi/* ones, it was denoted with the Linux-syscall-note if
         any GPL family license was found in the file or had no licensing in
         it (per prior point).  Results summary:
      
         SPDX license identifier                            # files
         ---------------------------------------------------|------
         GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note                       270
         GPL-2.0+ WITH Linux-syscall-note                      169
         ((GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note) OR BSD-2-Clause)    21
         ((GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note) OR BSD-3-Clause)    17
         LGPL-2.1+ WITH Linux-syscall-note                      15
         GPL-1.0+ WITH Linux-syscall-note                       14
         ((GPL-2.0+ WITH Linux-syscall-note) OR BSD-3-Clause)    5
         LGPL-2.0+ WITH Linux-syscall-note                       4
         LGPL-2.1 WITH Linux-syscall-note                        3
         ((GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note) OR MIT)              3
         ((GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note) AND MIT)             1
      
         and that resulted in the third patch in this series.
      
       - when the two scanners agreed on the detected license(s), that became
         the concluded license(s).
      
       - when there was disagreement between the two scanners (one detected a
         license but the other didn't, or they both detected different
         licenses) a manual inspection of the file occurred.
      
       - In most cases a manual inspection of the information in the file
         resulted in a clear resolution of the license that should apply (and
         which scanner probably needed to revisit its heuristics).
      
       - When it was not immediately clear, the license identifier was
         confirmed with lawyers working with the Linux Foundation.
      
       - If there was any question as to the appropriate license identifier,
         the file was flagged for further research and to be revisited later
         in time.
      
      In total, over 70 hours of logged manual review was done on the
      spreadsheet to determine the SPDX license identifiers to apply to the
      source files by Kate, Philippe, Thomas and, in some cases, confirmation
      by lawyers working with the Linux Foundation.
      
      Kate also obtained a third independent scan of the 4.13 code base from
      FOSSology, and compared selected files where the other two scanners
      disagreed against that SPDX file, to see if there was new insights.  The
      Windriver scanner is based on an older version of FOSSology in part, so
      they are related.
      
      Thomas did random spot checks in about 500 files from the spreadsheets
      for the uapi headers and agreed with SPDX license identifier in the
      files he inspected. For the non-uapi files Thomas did random spot checks
      in about 15000 files.
      
      In initial set of patches against 4.14-rc6, 3 files were found to have
      copy/paste license identifier errors, and have been fixed to reflect the
      correct identifier.
      
      Additionally Philippe spent 10 hours this week doing a detailed manual
      inspection and review of the 12,461 patched files from the initial patch
      version early this week with:
       - a full scancode scan run, collecting the matched texts, detected
         license ids and scores
       - reviewing anything where there was a license detected (about 500+
         files) to ensure that the applied SPDX license was correct
       - reviewing anything where there was no detection but the patch license
         was not GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note to ensure that the applied
         SPDX license was correct
      
      This produced a worksheet with 20 files needing minor correction.  This
      worksheet was then exported into 3 different .csv files for the
      different types of files to be modified.
      
      These .csv files were then reviewed by Greg.  Thomas wrote a script to
      parse the csv files and add the proper SPDX tag to the file, in the
      format that the file expected.  This script was further refined by Greg
      based on the output to detect more types of files automatically and to
      distinguish between header and source .c files (which need different
      comment types.)  Finally Greg ran the script using the .csv files to
      generate the patches.

      locking/atomics: COCCINELLE/treewide: Convert trivial ACCESS_ONCE() patterns to READ_ONCE()/WRITE_ONCE()
      
      Please do not apply this to mainline directly, instead please re-run the
      coccinelle script shown below and apply its output.
      
      For several reasons, it is desirable to use {READ,WRITE}_ONCE() in
      preference to ACCESS_ONCE(), and new code is expected to use one of the
      former. So far, there's been no reason to change most existing uses of
      ACCESS_ONCE(), as these aren't harmful, and changing them results in
      churn.
      
      However, for some features, the read/write distinction is critical to
      correct operation. To distinguish these cases, separate read/write
      accessors must be used. This patch migrates (most) remaining
      ACCESS_ONCE() instances to {READ,WRITE}_ONCE(), using the following
      coccinelle script:
      
      ----
      // Convert trivial ACCESS_ONCE() uses to equivalent READ_ONCE() and
      // WRITE_ONCE()
      
      // $ make coccicheck COCCI=/home/mark/once.cocci SPFLAGS="--include-headers" MODE=patch

      genetlink: mark families as __ro_after_init · 56989f6d
      Johannes Berg authored
      Now genl_register_family() is the only thing (other than the
      users themselves, perhaps, but I didn't find any doing that)
      writing to the family struct.
      
      In all families that I found, genl_register_family() is only
      called from __init functions (some indirectly, in which case
      I've add __init annotations to clarifly things), so all can
      actually be marked __ro_after_init.
      
      This protects the data structure from accidental corruption.

      genetlink: no longer support using static family IDs · a07ea4d9
      Johannes Berg authored
      Static family IDs have never really been used, the only
      use case was the workaround I introduced for those users
      that assumed their family ID was also their multicast
      group ID.
      
      Additionally, because static family IDs would never be
      reserved by the generic netlink code, using a relatively
      low ID would only work for built-in families that can be
      registered immediately after generic netlink is started,
      which is basically only the control family (apart from
      the workaround code, which I also had to add code for so
      it would reserve those IDs)
      
      Thus, anything other than GENL_ID_GENERATE is flawed and
      luckily not used except in the cases I mentioned. Move
      those workarounds into a few lines of code, and then get
      rid of GENL_ID_GENERATE entirely, making it more robust.

      netlabel: handle sparse category maps in netlbl_catmap_getlong() · 50b8629a
      Paul Moore authored
      In cases where the category bitmap is sparse enough that gaps exist
      between netlbl_lsm_catmap structs, callers to netlbl_catmap_getlong()
      could find themselves prematurely ending their search through the
      category bitmap.  Further, the methods used to calculate the 'idx'
      and 'off' values were incorrect for bitmaps this large.  This patch
      changes the netlbl_catmap_getlong() behavior so that it always skips
      over gaps and calculates the index and offset values correctly.

      cipso: don't use IPCB() to locate the CIPSO IP option · 04f81f01
      Paul Moore authored
      Using the IPCB() macro to get the IPv4 options is convenient, but
      unfortunately NetLabel often needs to examine the CIPSO option outside
      of the scope of the IP layer in the stack.  While historically IPCB()
      worked above the IP layer, due to the inclusion of the inet_skb_param
      struct at the head of the {tcp,udp}_skb_cb structs, recent commit
      971f10ec ("tcp: better TCP_SKB_CB layout to reduce cache line misses")
      reordered the tcp_skb_cb struct and invalidated this IPCB() trick.
      
      This patch fixes the problem by creating a new function,
      cipso_v4_optptr(), which locates the CIPSO option inside the IP header
      without calling IPCB().  Unfortunately, this isn't as fast as a simple
      lookup so some additional tweaks were made to limit the use of this
      new function.

      netlink: make nlmsg_end() and genlmsg_end() void · 053c095a
      Johannes Berg authored
      Contrary to common expectations for an "int" return, these functions
      return only a positive value -- if used correctly they cannot even
      return 0 because the message header will necessarily be in the skb.
      
      This makes the very common pattern of
      
        if (genlmsg_end(...) < 0) { ... }
      
      be a whole bunch of dead code. Many places also simply do
      
        return nlmsg_end(...);
      
      and the caller is expected to deal with it.
      
      This also commonly (at least for me) causes errors, because it is very
      common to write
      
        if (my_function(...))
          /* error condition */
      
      and if my_function() does "return nlmsg_end()" this is of course wrong.
      
      Additionally, there's not a single place in the kernel that actually
      needs the message length returned, and if anyone needs it later then
      it'll be very easy to just use skb->len there.
      
      Remove this, and make the functions void. This removes a bunch of dead
      code as described above. The patch adds lines because I did
      
      -	return nlmsg_end(...);
      +	nlmsg_end(...);
      +	return 0;
      
      I could have preserved all the function's return values by returning
      skb->len, but instead I've audited all the places calling the affected
      functions and found that none cared. A few places actually compared
      the return value with <= 0 in dump functionality, but that could just
      be changed to < 0 with no change in behaviour, so I opted for the more
      efficient version.
      
      One instance of the error I've made numerous times now is also present
      in net/phonet/pn_netlink.c in the route_dumpit() function - it didn't
      check for <0 or <=0 and thus broke out of the loop every single time.
      I've preserved this since it will (I think) have caused the messages to
      userspace to be formatted differently with just a single message for
      every SKB returned to userspace. It's possible that this isn't needed
      for the tools that actually use this, but I don't even know what they
      are so couldn't test that changing this behaviour would be acceptable.
