SubjectRe: [PATCH] proc: Allow restricting permissions in /proc/sys

Thanks for taking the time for looking into this!

We don't get many eyeballs over this code, so while you're at it, if its
not too much trouble and since it seems you care: can you list proc sys
files which are glaring red flags to have their current defaults
permissions?

This alone checks to see if the inode's uid and gid are mapped to the
current namespace, amonst other things. A worthy change in and of
itself, worthy of it being a separate patch.

Can it regress current uses? Well depends if namespaces exists today
where root is not mapped to other namespaces, and if that was *expected*
to work.

max_mode &= root->permissions(head, table) ?

But why are we setting this? More in context below.

Shouldn't this error path call sysctl_head_finish(head) ?

Here we only care about setting this current_mode if the
table is set is present, but above we did some processing
when it was not set. Why?

Please add kdoc, I know we don't have one, but we have to start, and
explain at least that mode is the original intended settings, and that
current_mode can only be stricter settings.

Also, I see your patch does a good sanity test on the input mask
and returns it back, howevever, I don't see how proc_sys_permission()
is using it?
