Subject[PATCH v3 1/2] cgroup: apply common ancestor cgroup.procs restriction in cgroupv1
Date
The common ancestor restriction for moving tasks between cgroups (the
process moving the task must have the right to write to cgroup.procs in
both the destination and common ancestor cgroup) only applied for
cgroupv2 (cgroups in the default hierarchy). This meant that there was a
different policy for unprivileged users in the different cgroup
hierarchies.

Update cgroup_procs_write_permission() to apply the cgroup.procs
restriction regardless of the cgroup root of the destination cgroup.
However, if the task doesn't have any association with the destination
hierarchy, there's no permission check to be done. In addition, if the
destination cgroup is a descendant of the task's current cgroup then
there are no further permission checks. This is important for
unprivileged processes creating subtrees.

% sudo mount -t cgroup -o pids cgroup /sys/fs/cgroup/pids
% sudo mkdir /sys/fs/cgroup/pids/parent
% sudo chmod a+w /sys/fs/cgroup/pids/parent
% echo $$ | sudo tee /sys/fs/cgroup/pids/parent/cgroup.procs
1337
% mkdir /sys/fs/cgroup/pids/parent/{a,b}
% echo $$ | tee /sys/fs/cgroup/pids/parent/a/cgroup.procs
1337
% echo $$ | tee /sys/fs/cgroup/pids/parent/b/cgroup.procs
tee: /sys/fs/cgroup/pids/parent/b/cgroup.procs: Permission denied
