Subject: [PATCH v2] exec: don't force_sigsegv processes with a pending fatal signal
Date: Mon, 4 Feb 2019 18:53:08 -0800
Message-ID: <20190205025308.GA24455@visor> (raw)

We were seeing unexplained segfaults in coreutils processes and other
basic utilities on systems with print-fatal-signals enabled:

	[  311.001986] potentially unexpected fatal signal 11.
	[  311.001993] CPU: 3 PID: 4565 Comm: tail Tainted: P           O    4.9.100.Ar-8497547.eostrunkkernel49 #1

We tracked these crashes down to binfmt_elf failing to load segments
for ld.so inside the kernel. Digging further, the actual problem
seems to occur when a process gets sigkilled while it is still being
loaded by the kernel. In our case when _do_page_fault goes for a retry
it will return early as it first checks for fatal_signal_pending(), so
load_elf_interp also returns with error and as a result
search_binary_handler will force_sigsegv() which is pretty confusing as
nothing actually failed here.


v2: add a message when load_binary fails, add a check for fatal signals
in signal_delivered (avoiding a single check in force_sigsegv as other
architectures use it directly and may have different expectations).

Thanks to Dmitry Safonov and Oleg Nesterov for their comments and
suggestions.

Fixes: 19d860a140be ("handle suicide on late failure exits in execve() in search_binary_handler()")
