Subject[PATCH net 1/1 v4] rtnetlink: require unique netns identifier
Date
Since we've added support for IFLA_IF_NETNSID for RTM_{DEL,GET,SET,NEW}LINK
it is possible for userspace to send us requests with three different
properties to identify a target network namespace. This affects at least
RTM_{NEW,SET}LINK. Each of them could potentially refer to a different
network namespace which is confusing. For legacy reasons the kernel will
pick the IFLA_NET_NS_PID property first and then look for the
IFLA_NET_NS_FD property but there is no reason to extend this type of
behavior to network namespace ids. The regression potential is quite
minimal since the rtnetlink requests in question either won't allow
IFLA_IF_NETNSID requests before 4.16 is out (RTM_{NEW,SET}LINK) or don't
support IFLA_NET_NS_{PID,FD} (RTM_{DEL,GET}LINK) in the first place.

ChangeLog v3->v4:
* Based on discussions with Eric and Jiri: disallow passing multiple network
namespace identifying properties for all requests, i.e. always enforce
uniqueness.
* disable passing IFLA_NET_NS_{FD,PID} for RTM_{DEL,GET}LINK completely since
they never supported it
ChangeLog v2->v3:
* Specifying target network namespaces with pids or fds seems racy since the
process might die and the pid get recycled or the process does a setns() in
which case the tests would be invalid. So only check whether multiple
properties are specified and report a helpful error in this case.
ChangeLog v1->v2:
* return errno when the specified network namespace id is invalid
* fill in struct netlink_ext_ack if the network namespace id is invalid
* rename rtnl_ensure_unique_netns_attr() to rtnl_ensure_unique_netns() to
indicate that a request without any network namespace identifying attributes
is also considered valid.
ChangeLog v0->v1:
* report a descriptive error to userspace via struct netlink_ext_ack
* do not fail when multiple properties specifiy the same network namespace
