Subject: [PATCH 3.4 49/99] proc connector: reject unprivileged listener bumps

3.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Kees Cook <keescook@...omium.org>

commit e70ab977991964a5a7ad1182799451d067e62669 upstream.

While PROC_CN_MCAST_LISTEN/IGNORE is entirely advisory, it was possible
for an unprivileged user to turn off notifications for all listeners by
sending PROC_CN_MCAST_IGNORE. Instead, require the same privileges as
required for a multicast bind.
