Subject: [PATCH v1 2/2] arm64: Enable BTI for main executable as well as the interpreter
Date: Fri, 21 May 2021 15:46:21 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210521144621.9306-3-broonie@kernel.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210521144621.9306-1-broonie@kernel.org>

Currently for dynamically linked ELF executables we only enable BTI for
the interpreter, expecting the interpreter to do this for the main
executable. This is a bit inconsistent since we do map main executable and
is causing issues with systemd's MemoryDenyWriteExecute feature which is
implemented using a seccomp filter which prevents setting PROT_EXEC on
already mapped memory and lacks the context to be able to detect that
memory is already mapped with PROT_EXEC.

Resolve this by checking the BTI property for the main executable and
enabling BTI if it is present when doing the initial mapping. This does
mean that we may get more code with BTI enabled if running on a system
without BTI support in the dynamic linker, this is expected to be a safe
configuration and testing seems to confirm that. It also reduces the
flexibility userspace has to disable BTI but it is expected that for cases
where there are problems which require BTI to be disabled it is more likely
that it will need to be disabled on a system level.
