Date: Wed, 30 Oct 2019 18:31:10 +1100 From: Russell Currey <ruscur@...sell.cc> To: linuxppc-dev@...ts.ozlabs.org Cc: Russell Currey <ruscur@...sell.cc>, christophe.leroy@....fr, joel@....id.au, mpe@...erman.id.au, ajd@...ux.ibm.com, dja@...ens.net, npiggin@...il.com, kernel-hardening@...ts.openwall.com Subject: [PATCH v5 4/5] powerpc: Set ARCH_HAS_STRICT_MODULE_RWX To enable strict module RWX on powerpc, set: CONFIG_STRICT_MODULE_RWX=y You should also have CONFIG_STRICT_KERNEL_RWX=y set to have any real security benefit. ARCH_HAS_STRICT_MODULE_RWX is set to require ARCH_HAS_STRICT_KERNEL_RWX. This is due to a quirk in arch/Kconfig and arch/powerpc/Kconfig that makes STRICT_MODULE_RWX *on by default* in configurations where STRICT_KERNEL_RWX is *unavailable*. Since this doesn't make much sense, and module RWX without kernel RWX doesn't make much sense, having the same dependencies as kernel RWX works around this problem. Signed-off-by: Russell Currey <ruscur@...sell.cc> --- This means that Daniel's test on book3e64 is pretty useless since we've gone from being unable to turn it *off* to being unable to turn it *on*. I think this is the right course of action for now. arch/powerpc/Kconfig | 1 + 1 file changed, 1 insertion(+) diff --git a/arch/powerpc/Kconfig b/arch/powerpc/Kconfig index 8f7005f0d097..52028e27f2d3 100644 --- a/arch/powerpc/Kconfig +++ b/arch/powerpc/Kconfig @@ -135,6 +135,7 @@ config PPC select ARCH_HAS_SCALED_CPUTIME if VIRT_CPU_ACCOUNTING_NATIVE && PPC_BOOK3S_64 select ARCH_HAS_SET_MEMORY select ARCH_HAS_STRICT_KERNEL_RWX if ((PPC_BOOK3S_64 || PPC32) && !RELOCATABLE && !HIBERNATION) + select ARCH_HAS_STRICT_MODULE_RWX if ARCH_HAS_STRICT_KERNEL_RWX select ARCH_HAS_TICK_BROADCAST if GENERIC_CLOCKEVENTS_BROADCAST select ARCH_HAS_UACCESS_FLUSHCACHE select ARCH_HAS_UACCESS_MCSAFE if PPC64 -- 2.23.0
