Subject: [PATCH bpf-next v9 0/7] Generalizing bpf_local_storage

From: KP Singh <>

# v8 -> v9

- Fixed reference count logic for files for inode maps.
- Other fixes suggested by Martin
- Rebase

# v7 -> v8

- Fixed an issue with BTF IDs for helpers and added
  bpf_<>_storage_delete to selftests to catch this issue.
- Update comments about refcounts and grabbed a refcount to the open
  file for userspace inode helpers.
- Rebase.

# v6 -> v7

- Updated the series to use Martin's POC patch:

  I added a Co-developed-by: tag, but would need Martin's Signoff
  (was not sure of the procedure here).

- Rebase.

# v5 -> v6

- Fixed a build warning.
- Rebase.

# v4 -> v5

- Split non-functional changes into separate commits.
- Updated the cache macros to be simpler.
- Fixed some bugs noticed by Martin.
- Updated the userspace map functions to use an fd for lookups, updates
  and deletes.
- Rebase.

# v3 -> v4

- Fixed a missing include to bpf_sk_storage.h in bpf_sk_storage.c
- Fixed some functions that were not marked as static which led to
  W=1 compilation warnings.

# v2 -> v3

* Restructured the code as per Martin's suggestions:
  - Common functionality in bpf_local_storage.c
  - bpf_sk_storage functionality remains in net/bpf_sk_storage.
  - bpf_inode_storage is kept separate as it is enabled only with
* A separate cache for inode and sk storage with macros to define it.
* Use the ops style approach as suggested by Martin instead of the
  enum + switch style.
* Added the inode map to bpftool bash completion and docs.
* Rebase and indentation fixes.

# v1 -> v2

* Use the security blob pointer instead of dedicated member in
  struct inode.
* Better code re-use as suggested by Alexei.
* Dropped the inode count arithmetic as pointed out by Alexei.
* Minor bug fixes and rebase.

bpf_sk_storage can already be used by some BPF program types to annotate
socket objects. These annotations are managed with the life-cycle of the
object (i.e. freed when the object is freed) which makes BPF programs
much simpler and less prone to errors and leaks.

This patch series:

* Generalizes the bpf_sk_storage infrastructure to allow easy
  implementation of local storage for other objects
* Implements local storage for inodes
* Makes both bpf_{sk, inode}_storage available to LSM programs.

Local storage is safe to use in LSM programs as the attachment sites are
limited and the owning object won't be freed, however, this is not the
case for tracing. Usage in tracing is expected to follow a white-list
based approach similar to the d_path helper

Access to local storage would allow LSM programs to implement stateful
detections like detecting the unlink of a running executable from the
examples shared as a part of the KRSI series
