      commit 23da9588 ("fs/proc/proc_sysctl.c: fix NULL pointer
      dereference in put_links") forgot to handle start_unregistering() case,
      while header->parent is NULL, it calls erase_header() and as seen in the
      above syzkaller call trace, accessing &header->parent->root will trigger
      a NULL pointer dereference.
      As that commit explained, there is also no need to call
      start_unregistering() if header->parent is NULL.

      coredump: fix race condition between mmget_not_zero()/get_task_mm() and core dumping · 1eb719f0
      Andrea Arcangeli authored
      commit 04f5866e upstream.
      The core dumping code has always run without holding the mmap_sem for
      writing, despite that is the only way to ensure that the entire vma
      layout will not change from under it.  Only using some signal
      serialization on the processes belonging to the mm is not nearly enough.
      This was pointed out earlier.  For example in Hugh's post from Jul 2017:
        "Not strictly relevant here, but a related note: I was very surprised
         to discover, only quite recently, how handle_mm_fault() may be called
         without down_read(mmap_sem) - when core dumping. That seems a
         misguided optimization to me, which would also be nice to correct"
      In particular because the growsdown and growsup can move the
      vm_start/vm_end the various loops the core dump does around the vma will
      not be consistent if page faults can happen concurrently.
      Pretty much all users calling mmget_not_zero()/get_task_mm() and then
      taking the mmap_sem had the potential to introduce unexpected side
      effects in the core dumping code.
      Adding mmap_sem for writing around the ->core_dump invocation is a
      viable long term fix, but it requires removing all copy user and page
      faults and to replace them with get_dump_page() for all binary formats
      which is not suitable as a short term fix.
      For the time being this solution manually covers the places that can
      confuse the core dump either by altering the vma layout or the vma flags
      while it runs.  Once ->core_dump runs under mmap_sem for writing the
      function mmget_still_valid() can be dropped.
      Allowing mmap_sem protected sections to run in parallel with the
      coredump provides some minor parallelism advantage to the swapoff code
      (which seems to be safe enough by never mangling any vma field and can
      keep doing swapins in parallel to the core dumping) and to some other
      corner case.
      In order to facilitate the backporting I added "Fixes: 86039bd3"
      however the side effect of this same race condition in /proc/pid/mem
      should be reproducible since before 2.6.12-rc2 so I couldn't add any
      other "Fixes:" because there's no hash beyond the git genesis commit.
      Because find_extend_vma() is the only location outside of the process
      context that could modify the "mm" structures under mmap_sem for
      reading, by adding the mmget_still_valid() check to it, all other cases
      that take the mmap_sem for reading don't need the new check after
      mmget_not_zero()/get_task_mm().  The expand_stack() in page fault
      context also doesn't need the new check, because all tasks under core
      dumping are frozen.

      x86/gart: Exclude GART aperture from kcore · 64253073
      Kairui Song authored
      [ Upstream commit ffc8599a ]
      On machines where the GART aperture is mapped over physical RAM,
      /proc/kcore contains the GART aperture range. Accessing the GART range via
      /proc/kcore results in a kernel crash.
      vmcore used to have the same issue, until it was fixed with commit
      2a3e83c6 ("x86/gart: Exclude GART aperture from vmcore")', leveraging
      existing hook infrastructure in vmcore to let /proc/vmcore return zeroes
      when attempting to read the aperture region, and so it won't read from the
      actual memory.
      Apply the same workaround for kcore. First implement the same hook
      infrastructure for kcore, then reuse the hook functions introduced in the
      previous vmcore fix. Just with some minor adjustment, rename some functions
      for more general usage, and simplify the hook infrastructure a bit as there
      is no module usage yet.

      drop_sysctl_table().This patch fix it.

      In the scenario IDLE and NORMAL(BATCH,ISO,RT) policy tasks run together,
      IDLE tasks can be supressed to run on SMT sibling cpus and let the other
      policy tasks run without SMT. In this way, tasks with other policy will
      take high priority and completed sooner than run with IDLE tasks on SMT
      sibling cpus. This is called the SMT_NICE scheduling.

      proc/sysctl: don't return ENOMEM on lookup when a table is unregistering · ea5751cc
      Ivan Delalande authored
      proc_sys_lookup can fail with ENOMEM instead of ENOENT when the
      corresponding sysctl table is being unregistered. In our case we see
      this upon opening /proc/sys/net/*/conf files while network interfaces
      are being deleted, which confuses our configuration daemon.
      The problem was successfully reproduced and this fix tested on v4.9.122
      and v4.20-rc6.
      v2: return ERR_PTRs in all cases when proc_sys_make_inode fails instead
      of mixing them with NULL. Thanks Al Viro for the feedback.

      mm: zero-seek shrinkers · 4b85afbd
      Johannes Weiner authored
      The page cache and most shrinkable slab caches hold data that has been
      read from disk, but there are some caches that only cache CPU work, such
      as the dentry and inode caches of procfs and sysfs, as well as the subset
      of radix tree nodes that track non-resident page cache.
      Currently, all these are shrunk at the same rate: using DEFAULT_SEEKS for
      the shrinker's seeks setting tells the reclaim algorithm that for every
      two page cache pages scanned it should scan one slab object.
      This is a bogus setting.  A virtual inode that required no IO to create is
      not twice as valuable as a page cache page; shadow cache entries with
      eviction distances beyond the size of memory aren't either.
      In most cases, the behavior in practice is still fine.  Such virtual
      caches don't tend to grow and assert themselves aggressively, and usually
      get picked up before they cause problems.  But there are scenarios where
      that's not true.
      Our database workloads suffer from two of those.  For one, their file
      workingset is several times bigger than available memory, which has the
      kernel aggressively create shadow page cache entries for the non-resident
      parts of it.  The workingset code does tell the VM that most of these are
      expendable, but the VM ends up balancing them 2:1 to cache pages as per
      the seeks setting.  This is a huge waste of memory.
      These workloads also deal with tens of thousands of open files and use
      /proc for introspection, which ends up growing the proc_inode_cache to
      absurdly large sizes - again at the cost of valuable cache space, which
      isn't a reasonable trade-off, given that proc inodes can be re-created
      without involving the disk.
      This patch implements a "zero-seek" setting for shrinkers that results in
      a target ratio of 0:1 between their objects and IO-backed caches.  This
      allows such virtual caches to grow when memory is available (they do
      cache/avoid CPU work after all), but effectively disables them as soon as
      IO-backed objects are under pressure.
      It then switches the shrinkers for procfs and sysfs metadata, as well as
      excess page cache shadow nodes, to the new zero-seek setting.

      mm, proc: add KReclaimable to /proc/meminfo · 61f94e18
      Vlastimil Babka authored
      The vmstat NR_KERNEL_MISC_RECLAIMABLE counter is for kernel non-slab
      allocations that can be reclaimed via shrinker.  In /proc/meminfo, we can
      show the sum of all reclaimable kernel allocations (including slab) as
      "KReclaimable".  Add the same counter also to per-node meminfo under /sys
      With this counter, users will have more complete information about kernel
      memory usage.  Non-slab reclaimable pages (currently just the ION
      allocator) will not be missing from /proc/meminfo, making users wonder
      where part of their memory went.  More precisely, they already appear in
      MemAvailable, but without the new counter, it's not obvious why the value
      in MemAvailable doesn't fully correspond with the sum of other counters
      participating in it.

      proc: restrict kernel stack dumps to root · f8a00cef
      Jann Horn authored
      Currently, you can use /proc/self/task/*/stack to cause a stack walk on
      a task you control while it is running on another CPU.  That means that
      the stack can change under the stack walker.  The stack walker does
      have guards against going completely off the rails and into random
      kernel memory, but it can interpret random data from your kernel stack
      as instruction pointers and stack pointers.  This can cause exposure of
      kernel stack contents to userspace.
      Restrict the ability to inspect kernel stacks of arbitrary tasks to root
      in order to prevent a local attacker from exploiting racy stack unwinding
      to leak kernel task stack contents.  See the added comment for a longer
      There don't seem to be any users of this userspace API that can't
      gracefully bail out if reading from the file fails.  Therefore, I believe
      that this change is unlikely to break things.  In the case that this patch
      does end up needing a revert, the next-best solution might be to fake a
      single-entry stack based on wchan.

      value entry).  It is also a change in emphasis; exceptional entries are
      intimidating and different.  As the comment explains, you can choose
      to store values or pointers in the xarray and they are both first-class
