Subject[PATCH 2/3] ipc/sem: introduce shmctl(SEM_STAT_ALL)
Date
There is a permission discrepancy when consulting shm ipc
object metadata between /proc/sysvipc/sem (0444) and the
SEM_STAT semctl command. The later does permission checks
for the object vs S_IRUGO. As such there can be cases where
EACCESS is returned via syscall but the info is displayed
anyways in the procfs files.

While this might have security implications via info leaking
(albeit no writing to the sma metadata), this behavior goes
way back and showing all the objects regardless of the
permissions was most likely an overlook - so we are stuck
with it. Furthermore, modifying either the syscall or the
procfs file can cause userspace programs to break (ie ipcs).
Some applications require getting the procfs info (without
root privileges) and can be rather slow in comparison with
a syscall -- up to 500x in some reported cases for shm.

This patch introduces a new SEM_STAT_ALL command such that
the sem ipc object permissions are ignored, and only audited
instead. In addition, I've left the lsm security hook checks
in place, as if some policy can block the call, then the user
has no other choice than just parsing the procfs file.
