[Qemu-devel] [for-2.10 PATCH v6] 9pfs: local: fix fchmodat_nofollow() limitations
Posted by Greg Kurz, 1 week ago
This function has to ensure it doesn't follow a symlink that could be used
to escape the virtfs directory. This could be easily achieved if fchmodat()
on linux honored the AT_SYMLINK_NOFOLLOW flag as described in POSIX, but
it doesn't. There was a tentative to implement a new fchmodat2() syscall
with the correct semantics:

https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/9596301/

but it didn't gain much momentum. Also it was suggested to look at an O_PATH
based solution in the first place.

The current implementation covers most use-cases, but it notably fails if:
- the target path has access rights equal to 0000 (openat() returns EPERM),
  => once you've done chmod(0000) on a file, you can never chmod() again
- the target path is UNIX domain socket (openat() returns ENXIO)
  => bind() of UNIX domain sockets fails if the file is on 9pfs

The solution is to use O_PATH: openat() now succeeds in both cases, and we
can ensure the path isn't a symlink with fstat(). The associated entry in
"/proc/self/fd" can hence be safely passed to the regular chmod() syscall.

The previous behavior is kept for older systems that don't have O_PATH.

v6: - refactored some code as suggested by Philippe

v5: - added missing fd == -1 check

v4: - fixed #if condition
    - moved out: label above #endif
    - fixed typo in changelog
    - added Eric's r-b

v3: - O_PATH in a separate block of code
    - added a reference to the fchmodat2() tentative in the changelog

v2: - renamed OPENAT_DIR_O_PATH to O_PATH_9P_UTIL and use it as a replacement
      for O_PATH to avoid build breaks on O_PATH-less systems
    - keep current behavior for O_PATH-less systems
    - added comments
    - TODO in 2.11: add _nofollow suffix to openat_dir() and openat_file()
