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()")

Should we be using print_fatal_signal() here?

I don't think so, the force_sigsegv() already ensures it will be called
from get_signal() when the signal is handled, and so the process
information will be printed then.

I just noticed this.  From  my patch queue that I intend to send to
Linus tomorrow. I think this change fixes your issue of getting
the SIGSEGV instead of the already pending fatal signal.

So I think this fixes your issue without any other code changes.
Ivan can you verify that the patch below is enough?

Hi Eric,

I was having issues with just this patch applied on top of v5.0-rc5 or
the latest master: defunct processes accumulating, exiting processes
that would hang forever, and some kernel functions eating all the CPU
(setup_sigcontext, common_interrupt, __clear_user, do_signal…).

But using your user-namespace.git/for-linus worked great and I've been
running my reproducer for a few hours now without issue. I'll probably
keep it running over the week-end as it has been unreliable at times,
but it looks promising so far.


A difference I've noticed with your tree (unrelated to my issue here but
that you may want to look at) is when I run my reproducer under
strace -f, I'm now getting quite a lot of "Exit of unknown pid 12345
ignored" warnings from strace, which I've never seen with mainline.
My reproducer simply fork-exec tail processes in a loop, and tries to
sigkill them in the parent with a variable delay.

Thank you,

Sounds.  Thank you for finding my tree, and thank you for testing.

What was your base tree?

My best guess is that your SIGKILL is getting there before strace
realizes the process has been forked.  If we can understand the race
it is probably worth fixing.

Any chance you can post your reproducer.

It is possible it is my most recent fixes, or it is possible something
changed from the tree you were testing and the tree you are working
on.

Hmm... may be because of PTRACE_EVENT_EXIT problem I mentioned in reply
to this change...

sorry, I couldn't look at this patch before.

I won't argue, but do we really want this spam?

The changelog doesn't explain this change.

OK, I guess it comes from the previous discussion, setup_rt_frame() can equally fail
if fatal_signal_pending(). But this should be documented at least in the changelog,
and I still think we could simply change force_sigsegv() instead.

In any case, Eric has already mentioned that we going to give SIGKILL more priority,
so I think we can drop this patch?

Oleg.

Yes, I've been running our tests on top of Eric's tree over the week-end
and haven't seen any new hit. I also see that Andrew has dropped the
patch from -mm, so no futher action should be required here.

Thank you for taking a look at the patch anyway.

It was just off v5.0-rc5, and I didn't see these warnings on the last
few RCs either. Now I'm seeing them on vanilla v5.0-rc6 as well.

Sure, see the attachment. I think this is the simplest version where
these warnings show up. This one just forks/exec `tail -a` to make it
fail and exit 1 as soon as possible, and progressively increase the
delay between the fork and sigkill to try to hit our original issue,
stopping and restarting only after 10 completions of the child as the
timing varies a fair bit.

Running this program under `strace -f -o /dev/null` prints the warnings
almost instantly on my system.
