A Landlock ruleset is mainly a red-black tree with Landlock rules as
nodes.  This enables quick update and lookup to match a requested access
e.g., to a file.  A ruleset is usable through a dedicated file
descriptor (cf. following commit implementing the syscall) which enables
a process to create and populate a ruleset with new rules.

A domain is a ruleset tied to a set of processes.  This group of rules
define the security policy enforced on these processes and their future
children.  A domain can transition to a new domain which is the
intersection of all its constraints and those of a ruleset provided by
the current process.  This modification only impact the current process.
This means that a process can only gain more constraints (i.e. lose
accesses) over time.

Changes since v15:
* Replace layer_levels and layer_depth with a bitfield of layers, cf.
  filesystem commit.
* Rename the LANDLOCK_ACCESS_FS_{UNLINK,RMDIR} with
  LANDLOCK_ACCESS_FS_REMOVE_{FILE,DIR} because it makes sense to use
  them for the action of renaming a file or a directory, which may lead
  to the removal of the source file or directory.  Removes the
  LANDLOCK_ACCESS_FS_{LINK_TO,RENAME_FROM,RENAME_TO} which are now
  replaced with LANDLOCK_ACCESS_FS_REMOVE_{FILE,DIR} and
  LANDLOCK_ACCESS_FS_MAKE_* .
* Update the documentation accordingly and highlight how the access
  rights are taken into account.
* Change nb_rules from atomic_t to u32 because it is not use anymore by
  show_fdinfo().
* Add safeguard for level variables types.
* Check max number of rules.
* Replace struct landlock_access (self and beneath bitfields) with one
  bitfield.
* Remove useless variable.
* Add comments.

Changes since v14:
* Simplify the object, rule and ruleset management at the expense of a
  less aggressive memory freeing (contributed by Jann Horn, with
  additional modifications):
  - Make a domain immutable (remove the opportunistic cleaning).
  - Remove RCU pointers.
  - Merge struct landlock_ref and struct landlock_ruleset_elem into
    landlock_rule: get ride of rule's RCU.
  - Adjust union.
  - Remove the landlock_insert_rule() check about a new object with the
    same address as a previously disabled one, because it is not
    possible to disable a rule anymore.
  Cf. https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/CAG48ez21bEn0wL1bbmTiiu8j9jP5iEWtHOwz4tURUJ+ki0ydYw@mail.gmail.com/
* Fix nested domains by implementing a notion of layer level and depth:
  - Update landlock_insert_rule() to manage such layers.
  - Add an inherit_ruleset() helper to properly create a new domain.
  - Rename landlock_find_access() to landlock_find_rule() and return a
    full rule reference.
  - Add a layer_level and a layer_depth fields to struct landlock_rule.
  - Add a top_layer_level field to struct landlock_ruleset.
* Remove access rights that may be required for FD-only requests:
  truncate, getattr, lock, chmod, chown, chgrp, ioctl.  This will be
  handle in a future evolution of Landlock, but right now the goal is to
  lighten the code to ease review.
* Remove LANDLOCK_ACCESS_FS_OPEN and rename
  LANDLOCK_ACCESS_FS_{READ,WRITE} with a FILE suffix.
* Rename LANDLOCK_ACCESS_FS_READDIR to match the *_FILE pattern.
* Remove LANDLOCK_ACCESS_FS_MAP which was useless.
* Fix memory leak in put_hierarchy() (reported by Jann Horn).
* Fix user-after-free and rename free_ruleset() (reported by Jann Horn).
* Replace the for loops with rbtree_postorder_for_each_entry_safe().
* Constify variables.
* Only use refcount_inc() through getter helpers.
* Change Landlock_insert_ruleset_access() to
  Landlock_insert_ruleset_rule().
* Rename landlock_put_ruleset_enqueue() to landlock_put_ruleset_deferred().
* Improve kernel documentation and add a warning about the unhandled
  access/syscall families.
* Move ABI check to syscall.c .

Changes since v13:
* New implementation, inspired by the previous inode eBPF map, but
  agnostic to the underlying kernel object.

+/**
+ * DOC: fs_access
+ *
+ * A set of actions on kernel objects may be defined by an attribute (e.g.
+ * &struct landlock_attr_path_beneath) and a bitmask of access.
+ *
+ * Filesystem flags
+ * ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+ *
+ * These flags enable to restrict a sandbox process to a set of actions on
+ * files and directories.  Files or directories opened before the sandboxing
+ * are not subject to these restrictions.
+ *
+ * A file can only receive these access rights:
+ *
+ * - %LANDLOCK_ACCESS_FS_EXECUTE: Execute a file.
+ * - %LANDLOCK_ACCESS_FS_WRITE_FILE: Write to a file.
+ * - %LANDLOCK_ACCESS_FS_READ_FILE: Open a file with read access.
+ *
+ * A directory can receive access rights related to files or directories.  This
+ * set of access rights is applied to the directory itself, and the directories
+ * beneath it:
+ *
+ * - %LANDLOCK_ACCESS_FS_READ_DIR: Open a directory or list its content.
+ * - %LANDLOCK_ACCESS_FS_CHROOT: Change the root directory of the current
+ *   process.
+ *
+ * However, the following access rights only apply to the content of a
+ * directory, not the directory itself:
+ *
+ * - %LANDLOCK_ACCESS_FS_REMOVE_DIR: Remove an empty directory or rename one.
+ * - %LANDLOCK_ACCESS_FS_REMOVE_FILE: Unlink (or rename) a file.
+ * - %LANDLOCK_ACCESS_FS_MAKE_CHAR: Create (or rename or link) a character
+ *   device.
+ * - %LANDLOCK_ACCESS_FS_MAKE_DIR: Create (or rename or link) a directory.
+ * - %LANDLOCK_ACCESS_FS_MAKE_REG: Create (or rename or link) a regular file.
+ * - %LANDLOCK_ACCESS_FS_MAKE_SOCK: Create (or rename or link) a UNIX domain
+ *   socket.
+ * - %LANDLOCK_ACCESS_FS_MAKE_FIFO: Create (or rename or link) a named pipe.
+ * - %LANDLOCK_ACCESS_FS_MAKE_BLOCK: Create (or rename or link) a block device.
+ * - %LANDLOCK_ACCESS_FS_MAKE_SYM: Create (or rename or link) a symbolic link.
+ *
+ * .. warning::
+ *
+ *   It is currently not possible to restrict some file-related actions
+ *   accessible through these syscall families: :manpage:`chdir(2)`,
+ *   :manpage:`truncate(2)`, :manpage:`stat(2)`, :manpage:`flock(2)`,
+ *   :manpage:`chmod(2)`, :manpage:`chown(2)`, :manpage:`setxattr(2)`,
+ *   :manpage:`ioctl(2)`, :manpage:`fcntl(2)`.
+ *   Future Landlock evolutions will enable to restrict them.
