Subject: [PATCH v2 09/30] jfs: Define usercopy region in jfs_ip slab cache

From: David Windsor <dave@...lcore.net>

The jfs symlink pathnames, stored in struct jfs_inode_info.i_inline and
therefore contained in the jfs_ip slab cache, need to be copied to/from
userspace.

cache object allocation:
    fs/jfs/super.c:
        jfs_alloc_inode(...):
            ...
            jfs_inode = kmem_cache_alloc(jfs_inode_cachep, GFP_NOFS);
            ...
            return &jfs_inode->vfs_inode;

    fs/jfs/jfs_incore.h:
        JFS_IP(struct inode *inode):
            return container_of(inode, struct jfs_inode_info, vfs_inode);

    fs/jfs/inode.c:
        jfs_iget(...):
            ...
            inode->i_link = JFS_IP(inode)->i_inline;

example usage trace:
    readlink_copy+0x43/0x70
    vfs_readlink+0x62/0x110
    SyS_readlinkat+0x100/0x130

    fs/namei.c:
        readlink_copy(..., link):
            ...
            copy_to_user(..., link, len);

        (inlined in vfs_readlink)
        generic_readlink(dentry, ...):
            struct inode *inode = d_inode(dentry);
            const char *link = inode->i_link;
            ...
            readlink_copy(..., link);

In support of usercopy hardening, this patch defines a region in the
jfs_ip slab cache in which userspace copy operations are allowed.

This region is known as the slab cache's usercopy region. Slab caches can
now check that each copy operation involving cache-managed memory falls
entirely within the slab's usercopy region.

This patch is modified from Brad Spengler/PaX Team's PAX_USERCOPY
whitelisting code in the last public patch of grsecurity/PaX based on my
understanding of the code. Changes or omissions from the original code are
mine and don't reflect the original grsecurity/PaX code.
