Also, these patches made a bit of a mess of
mm-pass-mm-flags-as-a-coredump-parameter-for-consistency.patch.

I consider
mm-pass-mm-flags-as-a-coredump-parameter-for-consistency.patch to be
less important (although older) than this patch series so I've fixed up
mm-pass-mm-flags-as-a-coredump-parameter-for-consistency.patch and have
staged it after your patch series. If this causes problems then I'll
drop mm-pass-mm-flags-as-a-coredump-parameter-for-consistency.patch,
sorry.


From: Masami Hiramatsu <mhiramat@redhat.com>

Pass mm->flags as a coredump parameter for consistency.

---
1787 if (mm->core_state || !get_dumpable(mm)) { <- (1)
1788 up_write(&mm->mmap_sem);
1789 put_cred(cred);
1790 goto fail;
1791 }
1792
[...]
1798 if (get_dumpable(mm) == 2) { /* Setuid core dump mode */ <-(2)
1799 flag = O_EXCL; /* Stop rewrite attacks */
1800 cred->fsuid = 0; /* Dump root private */
1801 }
---
Since dumpable bits are not protected by lock, there is a chance to change
these bits between (1) and (2).

To solve this issue, this patch copies mm->flags to
coredump_params.mm_flags at the beginning of do_coredump() and uses it
instead of get_dumpable() while dumping core.

This copy is also passed to binfmt->core_dump, since elf*_core_dump() uses
dump_filter bits in mm->flags.
