Subject[PATCH v5 0/3] Checkpoint Support for Syscall User Dispatch
v5: automated test for !defined(GENERIC_ENTRY) failed, fix fs/proc
note: syscall user dispatch is not presently supported for
non-generic entry, but could be implemented. question is
whether the TIF_ define should be carved out now or then

v4: Whitespace
check test_syscall_work(SYSCALL_USER_DISPATCH) to determine if it's
turned on or not in fs/proc/array and getter interface

v3: Kernel test robot static function fix
Whitespace nitpicks

v2: Implements the getter/setter interface in ptrace rather than prctl

Syscall user dispatch makes it possible to cleanly intercept system
calls from user-land. However, most transparent checkpoint software
presently leverages some combination of ptrace and system call
injection to place software in a ready-to-checkpoint state.

If Syscall User Dispatch is enabled at the time of being quiesced,
injected system calls will subsequently be interposed upon and
dispatched to the task's signal handler.

This patch set implements 3 features to enable software such as CRIU
to cleanly interpose upon software leveraging syscall user dispatch.

- Implement PTRACE_O_SUSPEND_SYSCALL_USER_DISPATCH, akin to a similar
feature for SECCOMP. This allows a ptracer to temporarily disable
syscall user dispatch, making syscall injection possible.

- Implement an fs/proc extension that reports whether Syscall User
Dispatch is being used in proc/status. A similar value is present
for SECCOMP, and is used to determine whether special logic is
needed during checkpoint/resume.

- Implement a getter interface for Syscall User Dispatch config info.
To resume successfully, the checkpoint/resume software has to
save and restore this information. Presently this configuration
is write-only, with no way for C/R software to save it.

This was done in ptrace because syscall user dispatch is not part of
uapi. The syscall_user_dispatch_config structure was added to the
ptrace exports.
