Subject[PATCH 3.11 023/128] tracing: Fix syscall_*regfunc() vs copy_process() race
Date
3.11.10.14 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Oleg Nesterov <oleg@redhat.com>

commit 4af4206be2bd1933cae20c2b6fb2058dbc887f7c upstream.

syscall_regfunc() and syscall_unregfunc() should set/clear
TIF_SYSCALL_TRACEPOINT system-wide, but do_each_thread() can race
with copy_process() and miss the new child which was not added to
the process/thread lists yet.

Change copy_process() to update the child's TIF_SYSCALL_TRACEPOINT
under tasklist.

Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/p/20140413185854.GB20668@redhat.com

Fixes: a871bd33a6c0 "tracing: Add syscall tracepoints"
