Subject: [RFC PATCH 0/2] Avoid blocking in selinux inode callbacks on RCU walk
Date: Tue, 19 Nov 2019 18:40:55 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20191119184057.14961-1-will@kernel.org> (raw)

Hi all,

While debugging a KASAN report in the selinux access vector cache hash
table, I noticed that it looks like we may block in the inode_follow_link()
and inode_permission() callbacks, even when called from the VFS layer as
part of an RCU-protected path walk.

These two patches attempt to fix that, but since I found this by
inspection and I'm not familiar with this code, I'm sending as an RFC in
case I missed something that means this cannot happen.

Comments very welcome,

Will
