Subject[PATCH 3.16.y-ckt 057/144] pagemap: do not leak physical addresses to non-privileged userspace
Date
3.16.7-ckt10 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: "Kirill A. Shutemov" <kirill.shutemov@linux.intel.com>

commit ab676b7d6fbf4b294bf198fb27ade5b0e865c7ce upstream.

As pointed by recent post[1] on exploiting DRAM physical imperfection,
/proc/PID/pagemap exposes sensitive information which can be used to do
attacks.

This disallows anybody without CAP_SYS_ADMIN to read the pagemap.

[1] http://googleprojectzero.blogspot.com/2015/03/exploiting-dram-rowhammer-bug-to-gain.html

[ Eventually we might want to do anything more finegrained, but for now
this is the simple model. - Linus ]
