WIP finer-grained, more aggressive local PLT call check

9ea49e1... by Zack Weinberg on 2018-03-23

[Bug 15368] Move pthread_kill to libc and use it to implement raise.

The fix for bug #15368 was unnecessarily Linux-specific. To recap,
POSIX specifies raise to be async-signal-safe, but also specifies it
to be equivalent to pthread_kill(pthread_self(), sig), which is not
an async-signal-safe sequence of operations; a signal handler could
run in between pthread_self and pthread_kill, and do something (such
as calling fork, which is also async-signal-safe) that would invalidate
the thread descriptor. This is even true in the hypothetical case of
a port that doesn't implement multithreading: kill(getpid(), sig) will
fire the signal twice if a signal handler runs in between, calls fork,
and then returns on both sides of the fork. I don't see anything in
the standards to forbid that.

The Linux-specific fix was to override the definitions of raise in
both libpthread and libc to the same unitary function that blocks
signals, retrieves TID and PID directly from the kernel, calls tgkill,
and only then unblocks signals. This patch generalizes that to any
port: pthread_kill is moved from libpthread to libc, with a forwarding
stub left behind. The definition of raise in libpthread is also
replaced with a forwarding stub. The Linux-specific definition of
raise is deleted; those ports will now use sysdeps/pthread/raise.c,
which blocks signals first, then calls pthread_self and pthread_kill,
and then unblocks signals. Similarly, sysdeps/posix/raise.c (which
would be used on a port that didn't implement multithreading) blocks
signals, calls getpid and kill, and then unblocks signals. Thus,
ports need only implement the primitives correctly and do not need to
worry about making raise async-signal-safe.

The only wrinkle was that up till now, we did not bother initializing
the ->tid field of the initial thread's descriptor unless libpthread
was loaded; now that raise calls pthread_kill even in a single-
threaded environment, that won't fly. This is abstractly easy to fix;
the tricky part was figuring out _where_ to put the calls (two of
them, as it happens) to __pthread_initialize_pids, and I'd appreciate
careful eyes on those changes.

You might be wondering why it's safe to rely on the TID in the thread
descriptor, rather than calling gettid directly. Since all signals
are blocked from before calling pthread_self until after pthread_kill
uses the TID to call tgkill, the question is whether some _other_
thread could do something that would invalidate the calling thread's
descriptor, and I believe there is no such thing.

While I was at it I fixed another bug: raise was returning an error
code on failure (like pthread_kill does) instead of setting errno as
specified. This is user-visible but I don't think it's worth recording
as a fixed bug, nobody bothers checking whether raise failed anyway.

WIP no duplicate function definitions in pthread

65a7c4c... by Zack Weinberg on 2018-03-18

RFC: Introduce pt-compat-stubs and use it to replace pt-vfork.

I am looking into the possibility of eliminating all of the duplicate
function definitions from libpthread, replacing them with
properly-tagged weak compatibility symbols that just call the
definition in libc. Because one of the duplicated functions is vfork,
the calls to libc absolutely must reuse the stack frame (a "sibcall"
in GCC internals jargon), and on several important targets, GCC does
not implement sibcalls, or only implements them for intra-module
calls. But we only need to implement a single special case,
sibcalling a function with exactly the same signature, from
immediately after the caller's own entry point; so doing it by hand in
assembly language is not a crazy notion. I believe I have managed to
turn the trick for all currently-supported targets. This patch just
converts the existing vfork stub, so that review can focus on the new
sysdep.h SIBCALL macros.

 * sysdeps/generic/pt-compat-stubs.S: New file.
 * nptl/Makefile (libpthread-routines): Remove pt-vfork, add
 (libpthread-shared-only-routines): Add pt-compat-stubs.

 * sysdeps/generic/sysdep.h (SIBCALL): New macro to perform
 sibling calls; the generic definition errors out if used.

hurd: Fix accessing errno from rtld

Letting rtld access errno through TLS can not work at early stages since
TLS will not be initialized yet. When a private errno is not possible,
we thus have no other way than going through __errno_location.

 * include/errno.h [IS_IN(rtld) && !RTLD_PRIVATE_ERRNO]: Do not use the
 TLS declaration of errno.
