Subject: [PATCH bpf-next v8 01/11] bpf: disallow attaching modify_return
 tracing functions to other BPF programs

From: Toke Høiland-Jørgensen <toke@...hat.com>

>From the checks and commit messages for modify_return, it seems it was
never the intention that it should be possible to attach a tracing program
with expected_attach_type == BPF_MODIFY_RETURN to another BPF program.
However, check_attach_modify_return() will only look at the function name,
so if the target function starts with "security_", the attach will be
allowed even for bpf2bpf attachment.

Fix this oversight by also blocking the modification if a target program is
supplied.

Fixes: 18644cec714a ("bpf: Fix use-after-free in fmod_ret check")
Fixes: 6ba43b761c41 ("bpf: Attachment verification for BPF_MODIFY_RETURN")
