Subject[PATCH 3.18 06/46] kernel/signal.c: remove the no longer needed SIGNAL_UNKILLABLE check in complete_signal()
Date
3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Oleg Nesterov <oleg@redhat.com>

commit 426915796ccaf9c2bd9bb06dc5702225957bc2e5 upstream.

complete_signal() checks SIGNAL_UNKILLABLE before it starts to destroy
the thread group, today this is wrong in many ways.

If nothing else, fatal_signal_pending() should always imply that the
whole thread group (except ->group_exit_task if it is not NULL) is
killed, this check breaks the rule.

After the previous changes we can rely on sig_task_ignored();
sig_fatal(sig) && SIGNAL_UNKILLABLE can only be true if we actually want
to kill this task and sig == SIGKILL OR it is traced and debugger can
intercept the signal.

This should hopefully fix the problem reported by Dmitry. This
test-case

static int init(void *arg)
{
for (;;)
pause();
}

int main(void)
{
char stack[16 * 1024];

for (;;) {
int pid = clone(init, stack + sizeof(stack)/2,
CLONE_NEWPID | SIGCHLD, NULL);
assert(pid > 0);

assert(ptrace(PTRACE_ATTACH, pid, 0, 0) == 0);
assert(waitpid(-1, NULL, WSTOPPED) == pid);

assert(ptrace(PTRACE_DETACH, pid, 0, SIGSTOP) == 0);
assert(syscall(__NR_tkill, pid, SIGKILL) == 0);
assert(pid == wait(NULL));
}
}

triggers the WARN_ON_ONCE(!(task->jobctl & JOBCTL_STOP_PENDING)) in
task_participate_group_stop(). do_signal_stop()->signal_group_exit()
checks SIGNAL_GROUP_EXIT and return false, but task_set_jobctl_pending()
checks fatal_signal_pending() and does not set JOBCTL_STOP_PENDING.

And his should fix the minor security problem reported by Kyle,
SECCOMP_RET_TRACE can miss fatal_signal_pending() the same way if the
task is the root of a pid namespace.
