Re: [PATCHv5 RFC 1/3] BPF: New helper to obtain namespace data from current task.

Yonghong Song


Any update on this? It would be good to submit the patch earlier for a
release cycle
so we got a chance it may be accepted in the current release cycle.

Thanks Yonghong!.
Yes, I was looking at filename_lookup today on how to do it, I'll work on that.
Thank you very much.

Hey Yonghong,
I have changed getname_kernel interface to specify the allocation type,
all previous callers preserve GFP_KERNEL as the allocation type, after this change
getname_kernel could be used with GFP_ATOMIC in ebpf helpers.
If this change goes in, I could complete bpf_get_current_pidns_info helper.
Let me know your thoughts.
please figure out how to get pidns_info w/o calling into getname_kernel().
Looks like we can call filename_lookup() directly. We do not need to
call getname_kernel().
We know the exact path name. We can do a atomic allocation inside the helper.
Carlos, could you take a look along this line? In this way, we do not
need to change
any files under linux/fs.
