Subject[PATCH-next] ipc: Fix race condition in ipc_idr_alloc()
Date
In ipc_idr_alloc(), the sequence number of the kern_ipc_perm object was
also set before calling idr_alloc(). That gets changed recently in order
to conserve the sequence number space. That can lead to a possible race
condition where another thread of the same kern_ipc_perm may have called
ipc_obtain_object_check() concurrently with a recently deleted IPC id.
If idr_alloc() function happens to allocate the deleted index value,
that thread will incorrectly get a handle to the new IPC id.

However, we don't know if we should increment seq before the index value
is allocated and compared with the previously allocated index value. To
solve this dilemma, we will always put a new sequence number into the
kern_ipc_perm object before calling idr_alloc(). If it happens that the
sequence number don't need to be changed, we write back the right value
afterward. This will ensure that a concurrent ipc_obtain_object_check()
will not incorrectly match a deleted IPC id to to a new one.
