Commit Message

Thomas Weißschuh Feb. 23, 2024, 3:52 p.m. UTC
The permissions callback is not supposed to modify the ctl_table.
Enforce this expectation via the typesystem.

The patch was created with the following coccinelle script:

  @@
  identifier func, head, ctl;
  @@

  int func(
    struct ctl_table_header *head,
  - struct ctl_table *ctl)
  + const struct ctl_table *ctl)
  { ... }

(insert_entry() from fs/proc/proc_sysctl.c is a false-positive)

The three changed locations were validated through manually inspection
and compilation.

In addition a search for '.permissions =' was done over the full tree to
look for places that were missed by coccinelle.
None were found.

This change also is a step to put "struct ctl_table" into .rodata
throughout the kernel.

Changes in v2:
- flesh out commit messages
- Integrate changes to set_ownership and ctl_table_args into a single
  series
- Link to v1: https://lore.kernel.org/r/20231226-sysctl-const-permissions-v1-1-5cd3c91f6299@weissschuh.net

The patch is meant to be merged via the sysctl tree.

There is an upcoming series that will introduce a new implementation of
.permission which would need to be adapted [0].
The adaption would be trivial as the 'table' parameter also not modified
there.

This change was originally part of the sysctl-const series [1].
To slim down that series and reduce the message load on other
maintainers to a minimumble, submit this patch on its own.

Hey Thomas

Just to be sure I'm following. This is V2 of "[PATCH] sysctl: treewide:
constify ctl_table_root::set_ownership". Right? I ask, because the
subject changes slightly.

No, the v1 of this patch is linked in the patch log below.

The patches for ::set_ownership and ::permissions are changing two
different callbacks and both of them are needed.

The v2 for set_ownership is here:
https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20240223-sysctl-const-ownership-v2-1-f9ba1795aaf2@weissschuh.net/

Awesome. thx for clarifying. So the ::permissions one I have reviewed
and have added to the constification branch in sysctl repo for testing.
I'm missing the review for the set_ownership one.
