Subject: [RFC PATCH v6] mm: Optional full ASLR for mmap(), mremap(), vdso, stack and heap

Writing a new value of 3 to /proc/sys/kernel/randomize_va_space
enables full randomization of memory mappings. With 2, the base of the
VMA used for such mappings is random, but the mappings are created in
predictable places within the VMA and in sequential order. With 3, new
VMAs are created to fully randomize the mappings.

Mappings created with mmap(NULL, ...) are randomized and mremap(...,
MREMAP_MAYMOVE) will move the mappings even if not necessary. The
locations of heap (memory allocated with brk()), stack and vdso are
also randomized.

On 32 bit systems this may cause problems due to increased VM
fragmentation if the address space gets crowded.

On all systems, it will reduce performance and increase memory and
cache usage due to less efficient use of page tables and inability to
merge adjacent VMAs with compatible attributes. On x86_64 with 5 level
page tables, in the worst case, additional page table entries of up to
4 pages are created for each mapping, so with small mappings there's
considerable penalty.

By lowering the lowest address for mapping the main executable from
2/3 of the address space to sysctl.vm.mmap_min_addr, it's possible to
use the full 35 bits available on x86_64 for ASLR.

The method is to randomize the new address without considering
VMAs. If the address fails checks because of overlap with the stack
area (or in case of mremap(), overlap with the old mapping), the
operation is retried a few times before falling back to old method.

In this example with sysctl.kernel.randomize_va_space = 2, main
executable, heap allocated with brk(), locale-archive, libc, dynamic
loader, some anonymous memory reserved with mmap(), stack and vdso
are located in three groups and inside each group the mappings are
close to each other:

$ cat /proc/self/maps (only first line for each object shown for brevity)

With sysctl.kernel.randomize_va_space = 3, they are located at
unrelated addresses and the order is random:

v2: also randomize mremap(..., MREMAP_MAYMOVE)
v3: avoid stack area and retry in case of bad random address (Jann
Horn), improve description in kernel.rst (Matthew Wilcox)
v4:
- use /proc/$pid/maps in the example (Mike Rapaport)
- CCs (Andrew Morton)
- only check randomize_va_space == 3
v5: randomize also vdso and stack
v6:
- randomize also heap
- use 35 bits for ASLR on x86_64
- RFC due to temporarily disabling mremap() randomization
