Subject[REVIEW][PATCH 0/3] Fixing ptrace vs exec vs userns interactions

With everyone heading to Kernel Summit and Plumbers I put this set of
patches down temporarily. Now is the time to take it back up and to
make certain I am not missing something stupid in this set of patches.

There are other issues in this area as well, but these are the pieces
that I can see clearly, and have tested fixes for.

Andy as to your criticism about using strace sudo I can't possibly see
how that is effective or useful. Under strace sudo won't run as root
today, and will immediately exit because it is not root. Furthermore
the only place I can find non-readable executables is people hardening
suid root executables so they are more difficult to trace. So I
definitely think we should honor the unix permissions and people's
expressed wishes.

Eric W. Biederman (3):
ptrace: Capture the ptracer's creds not PT_PTRACE_CAP
exec: Don't allow ptracing an exec of an unreadable file
exec: Ensure mm->user_ns contains the execed files
