    net: Define usercopy region in struct proto slab cache · 30c2c9f1
    David Windsor authored
    In support of usercopy hardening, this patch defines a region in the
    struct proto slab cache in which userspace copy operations are allowed.
    Some protocols need to copy objects to/from userspace, and they can
    declare the region via their proto structure with the new usersize and
    useroffset fields. Initially, if no region is specified (usersize ==
    0), the entire field is marked as whitelisted. This allows protocols
    to be whitelisted in subsequent patches. Once all protocols have been
    annotated, the full-whitelist default can be removed.
    This region is known as the slab cache's usercopy region. Slab caches
    can now check that each dynamically sized copy operation involving
    cache-managed memory falls entirely within the slab's usercopy region.
    This patch is modified from Brad Spengler/PaX Team's PAX_USERCOPY
    whitelisting code in the last public patch of grsecurity/PaX based on my
    understanding of the code. Changes or omissions from the original code are
    mine and don't reflect the original grsecurity/PaX code.
