Subject[PATCH 0/2] shm: omit forced shm destroy if task IPC namespace was changed
Date
Hello,

Task IPC namespace shm's has shm_rmid_forced feature which is per IPC namespace
and controlled by kernel.shm_rmid_forced sysctl. When feature is turned on,
then during task exit (and unshare(CLONE_NEWIPC)) all sysvshm's will be destroyed
by exit_shm(struct task_struct *task) function. But there is a problem if task
was changed IPC namespace since shmget() call. In such situation exit_shm() function
will try to call
shm_destroy(<new_ipc_namespace_ptr>, <sysvshmem_from_old_ipc_namespace>)
which leads to the situation when sysvshm object still attached to old
IPC namespace but freed; later during old IPC namespace cleanup we will try to
free such sysvshm object for the second time and will get the problem :)

First patch solves this problem by postponing shm_destroy to the moment when
IPC namespace cleanup will be called.
Second patch is useful to prevent (or easy catch) such bugs in the future by
adding corresponding WARNings.

Regards,
Alex
