Subject[ 71/75] futex: Do not leak robust list to unprivileged process
3.3-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------
From: Kees Cook <keescook@chromium.org>

commit bdbb776f882f5ad431aa1e694c69c1c3d6a4a5b8 upstream.

It was possible to extract the robust list head address from a setuid
process if it had used set_robust_list(), allowing an ASLR info leak. This
changes the permission checks to be the same as those used for similar
info that comes out of /proc.

Running a setuid program that uses robust futexes would have had:
cred->euid != pcred->euid
cred->euid == pcred->uid
so the old permissions check would allow it. I'm not aware of any setuid
programs that use robust futexes, so this is just a preventative measure.

(This patch is based on changes from grsecurity.)
