Subject[PATCH net-next 08/10] net-sysfs: add netdev_change_owner()
Date
Add a function to change the owner of a network device when it is moved
between network namespaces.

Currently, when moving network devices between network namespaces the
ownership of the corresponding sysfs entries is not changed. This leads
to problems when tools try to operate on the corresponding sysfs files.
This leads to a bug whereby a network device that is created in a
network namespaces owned by a user namespace will have its corresponding
sysfs entry owned by the root user of the corresponding user namespace.
If such a network device has to be moved back to the host network
namespace the permissions will still be set to the user namespaces. This
means unprivileged users can e.g. trigger uevents for such incorrectly
owned devices. They can also modify the settings of the device itself.
Both of these things are unwanted.

For example, workloads will create network devices in the host network
namespace. Other tools will then proceed to move such devices between
network namespaces owner by other user namespaces. While the ownership
of the device itself is updated in
net/core/net-sysfs.c:dev_change_net_namespace() the corresponding sysfs
entry for the device is not:

However, if a device is created directly in the network namespace then
the device's sysfs permissions will be correctly updated:

Now, when creating a network device in a network namespace owned by a
user namespace and moving it to the host the permissions will be set to
the id that the user namespace root user has been mapped to on the host
leading to all sorts of permission issues:

458752
drwxr-xr-x 5 458752 458752 0 Jan 25 18:12 .
