[PATCH] grsecurity: TPE feature

This patch is a part of big grsecure-2.1.10 patch.

This patch doesn't contain virtualization support, and source code looks like original grsecure source as much as possible.

V2 - added TPE check in mmap()/mprotect() V3 - removed exec_file; added grsec_lock feature

Bug #92177.

[PATCH] grsecurity: TPE feature virtualization

Bug #92177.


Patch from Denis Lunev <den@openvz.org>
Exit from OOMed process ASAP rather then dig in try_to_free_pages().

It can spend really lots of time in try_to_free_pages() (up to minutes), while process selected for OOM should die ASAP.

Bug #79344.


Patch from Vitaliy Gusev <vgusev@openvz.org>

When via_phys_dev flag is set then bridge doesn't have any ip address. Therefore ip-traffic HW->VE passes only if bridge has the same MAC-address as real ethernet interface. This patch corrects checking for input packets.

Bug #92737.


Patch from Vitaliy Gusev <vgusev@openvz.org>
[PATCH] fix bust_spinlocks() race when doing Alt-SysRq-P via NMI IPI

smp_show_regs() function calls bust_spinlocks() which is not protected by any lock.

Just call bust_spinlocks() under smp_show_regs lock.

Bug #92669.


Patch from Evgeny Kravtsunov <emkravts@openvz.org>
[PATCH] hide global /proc/asound entry from VE

create_proc_entry() in sound/core/info.c is called with gobal parent == &proc_root, thus /proc/asound is global. Make it VE0 local.

Bug #92723.
