[PATCH 3/6] p9auth: use setresuid

serue at us.ibm.com serue at us.ibm.com
Tue Feb 2 15:57:07 UTC 2010


From: Serge E. Hallyn <serue at us.ibm.com>

Use setresuid to set userids through p9auth capability device, to
make sure MAC checks and setuid fixup are done.  In particular,
becoming root or dropping root should tweak capability sets.

Have the cred_setresuid() helper take a 'int force' argument,
which means the setuid has been authorized, so no need to
check CAP_SETUID.  (Analogous for cred_setresgid, which will
also eventually be used).
