Subject[PATCH 4.4 016/190] pidns: disable pid allocation if pid_ns_prepare_proc() is failed in alloc_pid()
Date
4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Kirill Tkhai <ktkhai@virtuozzo.com>


[ Upstream commit 8896c23d2ef803f1883fea73117a435925c2b4c4 ]

alloc_pidmap() advances pid_namespace::last_pid. When first pid
allocation fails, then next created process will have pid 2 and
pid_ns_prepare_proc() won't be called. So, pid_namespace::proc_mnt will
never be initialized (not to mention that there won't be a child
reaper).

I saw crash stack of such case on kernel 3.10:

BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at (null)
IP: proc_flush_task+0x8f/0x1b0
Call Trace:
release_task+0x3f/0x490
wait_consider_task.part.10+0x7ff/0xb00
do_wait+0x11f/0x280
SyS_wait4+0x7d/0x110

We may fix this by restore of last_pid in 0 or by prohibiting of futher
allocations. Since there was a similar issue in Oleg Nesterov's commit
314a8ad0f18a ("pidns: fix free_pid() to handle the first fork failure").
and it was fixed via prohibiting allocation, let's follow this way, and
do the same.
