Subject[PATCH v3 1/2] perf: Fix required permissions if sigtrap is requested
From
If perf_event_open() is called with another task as target and
perf_event_attr::sigtrap is set, and the target task's user does not
match the calling user, also require the CAP_KILL capability or
PTRACE_MODE_ATTACH permissions.

Otherwise, with the CAP_PERFMON capability alone it would be possible
for a user to send SIGTRAP signals via perf events to another user's
tasks. This could potentially result in those tasks being terminated if
they cannot handle SIGTRAP signals.

Note: The check complements the existing capability check, but is not
supposed to supersede the ptrace_may_access() check. At a high level we
now have:

capable of CAP_PERFMON and (CAP_KILL if sigtrap)
OR
ptrace_may_access(...) // also checks for same thread-group and uid

Fixes: 97ba62b27867 ("perf: Add support for SIGTRAP on perf events")

v3:
* Upgrade ptrace mode check to ATTACH if attr.sigtrap, otherwise it's
possible to change the target task (send signal) even if only read
ptrace permissions were granted (reported by Eric W. Biederman).

v2: https://lkml.kernel.org/r/20210701083842.580466-1-elver@google.com
* Drop kill_capable() and just check CAP_KILL (reported by Ondrej Mosnacek).
* Use ns_capable(__task_cred(task)->user_ns, CAP_KILL) to check for
capability in target task's ns (reported by Ondrej Mosnacek).
