[PATCH 1/3] sys_personality: validate personality before set_personality()
sys_personality(personality) is obviously wrong. It calls set_personality() which always sets current->personality = personality and then does if (current->personality != personality) return -EINVAL; If this "u_long" argument doesn't fit into "unsigned int" ->personality, we return -EINVAL but change the ca... 27 May 2010 12:36

On 05/26, Roland McGrath wrote: Yes, libc itself is fine. But from the application's pov, personality() returns int, not long. That doesn't really matter to error/success ambiguity. Since what I said is true, it won't ever return exactly -1 for a non-error. But even if it did, the application... 27 May 2010 12:36
[PATCH 3/3] __set_personality: no need to check the old ->exec_domain
Cleanup. __set_personality() always changes ->exec_domain/personality, the special case when ->exec_domain remains the same buys nothing but complicates the code. I don't understand why lookup_exec_domain() always succeeds even if the search in ->exec_domains list fails, we use default_exec_domain in this case. ... 27 May 2010 12:36
