Subject: clean up and streamline probe_kernel_* and friends v4
Date: Thu, 21 May 2020 17:22:38 +0200
Message-ID: <20200521152301.2587579-1-hch@lst.de> (raw)

Hi all,

this series start cleaning up the safe kernel and user memory probing
helpers in mm/maccess.c, and then allows architectures to implement
the kernel probing without overriding the address space limit and
temporarily allowing access to user memory.  It then switches x86
over to this new mechanism by reusing the unsafe_* uaccess logic.

This version also switches to the saner copy_{from,to}_kernel_nofault
naming suggested by Linus.

I kept the x86 helpers as-is without calling unsage_{get,put}_user as
that avoids a number of hard to trace casts, and it will still work
with the asm-goto based version easily.

Changes since v3:
 - cleanup how bpf and trace_kprobe perform the TASK_SIZE checks
 - remove the unused dst argument to probe_kernel_read_allowed
 - document the -ERANGE return value

Changes since v2:
 - rebased on 5.7-rc6 with the bpf trace format string changes
 - rename arch_kernel_read to __get_kernel_nofault and arch_kernel_write
   to __put_kernel_nofault
 - clean up the tracers to only allowd "mixed" reads when the kernel
   has non-overlapping address spaces
