2020-08-27remove redundant pthread struct members repeated for layout purposesRich Felker-1/+1
dtv_copy, canary2, and canary_at_end existed solely to match multiple ABI and asm-accessed layouts simultaneously. now that pthread_arch.h can be included before struct __pthread is defined, the struct layout can depend on macros defined by pthread_arch.h.
2018-09-05define and use internal macros for hidden visibility, weak refsRich Felker-2/+1
this cleans up what had become widespread direct inline use of "GNU C" style attributes directly in the source, and lowers the barrier to increased use of hidden visibility, which will be useful to recovering some of the efficiency lost when the protected visibility hack was dropped in commit dc2f368e565c37728b0d620380b849c3a1ddd78f, especially on archs where the PLT ABI is costly.
2015-11-11eliminate use of SHARED macro to suppress visibility attributesRich Felker-10/+1
this is the first and simplest stage of removal of the SHARED macro, which will eventually allow libc.a and to be produced from the same object files. the original motivation for these #ifdefs which are now being removed was to allow building a static-only libc using a compiler that does not support visibility. however, SHARED was the wrong condition to test for this anyway; various assembly-language sources refer to hidden symbols and declare them with the .hidden directive, making it wrong to define the referenced symbols as non-hidden. if there is a need in the future to build libc using compilers that lack visibility, support could be moved to the build system or perhaps the __PIC__ macro could be checked instead of SHARED.
2015-06-20provide __stack_chk_fail_local in libc.aRich Felker-0/+4
this symbol is needed only on archs where the PLT call ABI is klunky, and only for position-independent code compiled with stack protector. thus references usually only appear in shared libraries or PIE executables, but they can also appear when linking statically if some of the object files being linked were built as PIC/PIE. normally libssp_nonshared.a from the compiler toolchain should provide __stack_chk_fail_local, but reportedly it appears prior to -lc in the link order, thus failing to satisfy references from libc itself (which arise only if libc.a was built as PIC/PIE with stack protector enabled).
2015-05-06fix stack protector crashes on x32 & powerpc due to misplaced TLS canaryRich Felker-1/+1
i386, x86_64, x32, and powerpc all use TLS for stack protector canary values in the default stack protector ABI, but the location only matched the ABI on i386 and x86_64. on x32, the expected location for the canary contained the tid, thus producing spurious mismatches (resulting in process termination) upon fork. on powerpc, the expected location contained the stdio_locks list head, so returning from a function after calling flockfile produced spurious mismatches. in both cases, the random canary was not present, and a predictable value was used instead, making the stack protector hardening much less effective than it should be. in the current fix, the thread structure has been expanded to have canary fields at all three possible locations, and archs that use a non-default location must define a macro in pthread_arch.h to choose which location is used. for most archs (which lack TLS canary ABI) the choice does not matter.
2015-04-13allow libc itself to be built with stack protector enabledRich Felker-0/+10
this was already essentially possible as a result of the previous commits changing the dynamic linker/thread pointer bootstrap process. this commit mainly adds build system infrastructure: configure no longer attempts to disable stack protector. instead it simply determines how so the makefile can disable stack protector for a few translation units used during early startup. stack protector is also disabled for memcpy and memset since compilers (incorrectly) generate calls to them on some archs to implement struct initialization and assignment, and such calls may creep into early initialization. no explicit attempt to enable stack protector is made by configure at this time; any stack protector option supported by the compiler can be passed to configure in CFLAGS, and if the compiler uses stack protector by default, this default is respected.
2015-04-13remove remnants of support for running in no-thread-pointer modeRich Felker-2/+1
since 1.1.0, musl has nominally required a thread pointer to be setup. most of the remaining code that was checking for its availability was doing so for the sake of being usable by the dynamic linker. as of commit 71f099cb7db821c51d8f39dfac622c61e54d794c, this is no longer necessary; the thread pointer is now valid before any libc code (outside of dynamic linker bootstrap functions) runs. this commit essentially concludes "phase 3" of the "transition path for removing lazy init of thread pointer" project that began during the 1.1.0 release cycle.
2014-03-25remove lazy ssp initializationTimo Teräs-13/+5
now that thread pointer is initialized always, ssp canary initialization can be done unconditionally. this simplifies the ldso as it does not try to detect ssp usage, and the init function itself as it is always called exactly once. this also merges ssp init path for shared and static linking.
2014-03-24always initialize thread pointer at program startRich Felker-1/+7
this is the first step in an overhaul aimed at greatly simplifying and optimizing everything dealing with thread-local state. previously, the thread pointer was initialized lazily on first access, or at program startup if stack protector was in use, or at certain random places where inconsistent state could be reached if it were not initialized early. while believed to be fully correct, the logic was fragile and non-obvious. in the first phase of the thread pointer overhaul, support is retained (and in some cases improved) for systems/situation where loading the thread pointer fails, e.g. old kernels. some notes on specific changes: - the confusing use of libc.main_thread as an indicator that the thread pointer is initialized is eliminated in favor of an explicit has_thread_pointer predicate. - sigaction no longer needs to ensure that the thread pointer is initialized before installing a signal handler (this was needed to prevent a situation where the signal handler caused the thread pointer to be initialized and the subsequent sigreturn cleared it again) but it still needs to ensure that implementation-internal thread-related signals are not blocked. - pthread tsd initialization for the main thread is deferred in a new manner to minimize bloat in the static-linked __init_tp code. - pthread_setcancelstate no longer needs special handling for the situation before the thread pointer is initialized. it simply fails on systems that cannot support a thread pointer, which are non-conforming anyway. - pthread_cleanup_push/pop now check for missing thread pointer and nop themselves out in this case, so stdio no longer needs to avoid the cancellable path when the thread pointer is not available. a number of cases remain where certain interfaces may crash if the system does not support a thread pointer. at this point, these should be limited to pthread interfaces, and the number of such cases should be fewer than before.
2013-12-12include cleanups: remove unused headers and add feature test macrosSzabolcs Nagy-2/+1
2012-11-01fix unused variable warningsRich Felker-1/+0
2012-10-07clean up and refactor program initializationRich Felker-3/+2
the code in __libc_start_main is now responsible for parsing auxv, rather than duplicating the parsing all over the place. this should shave off a few cycles and some code size. __init_libc is left as an external-linkage function despite the fact that it could be static, to prevent it from being inlined and permanently wasting stack space when main is called. a few other minor changes are included, like eliminating per-thread ssp canaries (they were likely broken when combined with certain dlopen usages, and completely unnecessary) and some other unnecessary checks. since this code gets linked into every program, it should be as small and simple as possible.
2012-08-25ensure canary is setup if stack-prot libs are dlopen'd into non-ssp appRich Felker-1/+2
previously, this usage could lead to a crash if the thread pointer was still uninitialized, and otherwise would just cause the canary to be zero (less secure).
2012-05-03overhaul SSP support to use a real canaryRich Felker-4/+13
pthread structure has been adjusted to match the glibc/GCC abi for where the canary is stored on i386 and x86_64. it will need variants for other archs to provide the added security of the canary's entropy, but even without that it still works as well as the old "minimal" ssp support. eventually such changes will be made anyway, since they are also needed for GCC/C11 thread-local storage support (not yet implemented). care is taken not to attempt initializing the thread pointer unless the program actually uses SSP (by reference to __stack_chk_fail).
2012-04-24first attempt at enabling stack protector supportRich Felker-0/+14
the code is written to pre-init the thread pointer in static linked programs that pull in __stack_chk_fail or dynamic-linked programs that lookup the symbol. no explicit canary is set; the canary will be whatever happens to be in the thread structure at the offset gcc hard-coded. this can be improved later.
