Subject[PATCH v2 2/9] procfs: add proc_allow_access() to check if file's opener may access task
Date
Since /proc entries varies at runtime, permission checks need to happen
during each system call.

However even with that /proc file descriptors can be passed to a more
privileged process (e.g. a suid-exec) which will pass the classic
ptrace_may_access() permission check. The open() call will be issued in
general by an unprivileged process while the disclosure of sensitive
/proc information will happen using a more privileged process at
read(),write()...

Therfore we need a more sophisticated check to detect if the cred of the
process have changed, and if the cred of the original opener that are
stored in the file->f_cred have enough permission to access the task's
/proc entries during read(), write()...

Add the proc_allow_access() function that will receive the file->f_cred
as an argument, and tries to check if the opener had enough permission
to access the task's /proc entries.

This function should be used with the ptrace_may_access() check.
