Yes, I do understand the concern, this is valid for some cases! but we
can't apply it on the ioctl API ?! please see below:

All (perhaps not all) the current ioctl do not check for fd passing
attacks! if a privileged do arbitrary ioctl on untrusted fds we are
already owned... the dumb privileged process is the one to blame, right?


Example:
1) fs/ext4/ioctl.c:ext4_ioctl()
they have:
inode_owner_or_capable() + capable() checks

for all the restricted ioctl()

2) fs/xfs/xfs_ioctl.c:xfs_file_ioctl()
they have:
capable() checks

3) fs/btrfs/ioctl.c:btrfs_ioctl()
they have capable() + inode_owner_or_capable()

... long list

These are sensible API and they do not care at all about fd passing,
so I don't think we should care either ?! or perhaps I'm missing
something ?


The capable() is done as it is, and for the inode_owner_or_capable() you
will notice that we followed the same logic and did use it in our
kdbus_bus_uid_is_privileged() to stay safe and follow what other API are
doing.

Thank you for the comments!
