Subject: [GIT PULL] Audit patches for v6.6
Date: Tue, 29 Aug 2023 16:40:19 -0400	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Hi Linus,

Six audit patches for the Linux v6.6 merge window, the highlights are
listed below:

- Add an explicit cond_resched() call when generating PATH records

Certain tracefs/debugfs operations can generate a *lot* of audit PATH
entries and if one has an aggressive system configuration (not the
default) this can cause a soft lockup in the audit code as it works to
process all of these new entries.  This is in sharp contrast to the
common case where only one or two PATH entries are logged.  In order
to fix this corner case without excessively impacting the common case
we're adding a single cond_rescued() call between two of the most
intensive loops in the __audit_inode_child() function.

- Various minor cleanups

We removed a conditional header file as the included header already
had the necessary logic in place, fixed a dummy function's return
value, and the usual collection of noise (whitespace,
brace, and trailing statement tweaks).

Please merge,
