Subject[PATCH net 1/1 v3] rtnetlink: require unique netns identifier
Date
Since we've added support for IFLA_IF_NETNSID for RTM_{DEL,GET,SET,NEW}LINK
it is possible for userspace to send us requests with three different
properties to identify a target network namespace. This affects at least
RTM_{NEW,SET}LINK. Each of them could potentially refer to a different
network namespace which is confusing and a potential security liability
given that pids might be recycled while the netlink request is served or
the process might do a setns. It also lets us indicate that network
namespace ids are the preferred way of interacting with network namespaces
in rtnetlink requests. The regression potential is quite minimal since the
rtnetlink requests in question either won't allow IFLA_IF_NETNSID requests
before 4.16 is out (RTM_{NEW,SET}LINK) or don't support
IFLA_NET_NS_{PID,FD} (RTM_{DEL,GET}LINK) in the first place.

ChangeLog v2->v3:
* Specifying target network namespaces with pids or fds seems racy since the
process might die and the pid get recycled or the process does a setns() in
which case the tests would be invalid. So only check whether multiple
properties are specified and report a helpful error in this case.
ChangeLog v1->v2:
* return errno when the specified network namespace id is invalid
* fill in struct netlink_ext_ack if the network namespace id is invalid
* rename rtnl_ensure_unique_netns_attr() to rtnl_ensure_unique_netns() to
indicate that a request without any network namespace identifying attributes
is also considered valid.
ChangeLog v0->v1:
* report a descriptive error to userspace via struct netlink_ext_ack
* do not fail when multiple properties specifiy the same network namespace
