Subject[PATCH v2 1/1] prctl: add PR_{GET,SET}_KILL_DESCENDANTS_ON_EXIT
Date
This introduces a new thread group flag that can be set by calling

prctl(PR_SET_KILL_DESCENDANTS_ON_EXIT, 1, 0, 0, 0)

When a thread group exits with this flag set, it will send SIGKILL to
all descendant processes. This can be used to prevent stray child
processes.

This flag is cleared on privilege gaining execve(2) to ensure an
unprivileged process cannot get a privileged process to send SIGKILL.

Descendants that are orphaned and reparented to an ancestor of the
current process before the current process exits, will not be killed.
PR_SET_CHILD_SUBREAPER can be used to contain orphaned processes.

If a descendant gained privileges, the current process may not be
allowed to kill it, and the descendant process will survive.
PR_SET_NO_NEW_PRIVS can be used to prevent descendant processes from
gaining privileges.
