Subject: [PATCH 7/7] proc: Ensure we see the exit of each process tid exactly once
Date: Thu, 20 Feb 2020 14:52:47 -0600
Message-ID: <87r1yp7zhc.fsf_-_@x220.int.ebiederm.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <871rqpaswu.fsf_-_@x220.int.ebiederm.org> (Eric W. Biederman's message of "Thu, 20 Feb 2020 14:46:25 -0600")


When the thread group leader changes during exec and the old leaders
thread is reaped proc_flush_pid will flush the dentries for the entire
process because the leader still has it's original pid.

Fix this by exchanging the pids in an rcu safe manner,
and wrapping the code to do that up in a helper exchange_tids.

When I removed switch_exec_pids and introduced this behavior
in d73d65293e3e ("[PATCH] pidhash: kill switch_exec_pids") there
really was nothing that cared as flushing happened with
the cached dentry and de_thread flushed both of them on exec.

This lack of fully exchanging pids became a problem a few months later
when I introduced 48e6484d4902 ("[PATCH] proc: Rewrite the proc dentry
flush on exit optimization").  Which overlooked the de_thread case
was no longer swapping pids, and I was looking up proc dentries
by task->pid.

The current behavior isn't properly a bug as everything in proc will
continue to work correctly just a little bit less efficiently.  Fix
this just so there are no little surprise corner cases waiting to bite
people.

Fixes: 48e6484d4902 ("[PATCH] proc: Rewrite the proc dentry flush on exit optimization").
