8 years agoftrace: Do not process kernel/trace/ftrace.o with C recordmcount program
Steven Rostedt [Fri, 15 Oct 2010 15:49:47 +0000]
ftrace: Do not process kernel/trace/ftrace.o with C recordmcount program

The file kernel/trace/ftrace.c references the mcount() call to
convert the mcount() callers to nops. But because it references
mcount(), the mcount() address is placed in the relocation table.

The C version of recordmcount reads the relocation table of all
object files, and it will add all references to mcount to the
__mcount_loc table that is used to find the places that call mcount()
and change the call to a nop. When recordmcount finds the mcount reference
in kernel/trace/ftrace.o, it saves that location even though the code
is not a call, but references mcount as data.

On boot up, when all calls are converted to nops, the code has a safety
check to determine what op code it is actually replacing before it
replaces it. If that op code at the address does not match, then
a warning is printed and the function tracer is disabled.

The reference to mcount in ftrace.c, causes this warning to trigger,
since the reference is not a call to mcount(). The ftrace.c file is
not compiled with the -pg flag, so no calls to mcount() should be
expected.

This patch simply makes recordmcount.c skip the kernel/trace/ftrace.c
file. This was the same solution used by the perl version of
recordmcount.

ftrace: Remove duplicate code for 64 and 32 bit in recordmcount.c

The elf reader for recordmcount.c had duplicate functions for both
32 bit and 64 bit elf handling. This was due to the need of using
the 32 and 64 bit elf structures.

This patch consolidates the two by using macros to define the 32
and 64 bit names in a recordmcount.h file, and then by just defining
a RECORD_MCOUNT_64 macro and including recordmcount.h twice we
create the funtions for both the 32 bit version as well as the
64 bit version using one code source.

8 years agox86: Barf when vmalloc and kmemcheck faults happen in NMI
Frederic Weisbecker [Mon, 27 Sep 2010 16:50:51 +0000]
x86: Barf when vmalloc and kmemcheck faults happen in NMI

In x86, faults exit by executing the iret instruction, which then
reenables NMIs if we faulted in NMI context. Then if a fault
happens in NMI, another NMI can nest after the fault exits.

But we don't yet support nested NMIs because we have only one NMI
stack. To prevent from that, check that vmalloc and kmemcheck
faults don't happen in this context. Most of the other kernel faults
in NMIs can be more easily spotted by finding explicit
copy_from,to_user() calls on review.

Oprofile counters are setup when profiling is disabled. Thus, writing
to oprofilefs has no immediate effect. Changes are updated only after
oprofile is reenabled.

To keep userland and kernel states synchronized, we now allow
configuration of oprofile only if profiling is disabled.  In this case
it checks if the profiler is running and then disables write access to

8 years agosh: oprofile: Use perf-events oprofile backend
Matt Fleming [Fri, 10 Sep 2010 19:36:23 +0000]
sh: oprofile: Use perf-events oprofile backend

Now that we've got a generic perf-events based oprofile backend we might
as well make use of it seeing as SH doesn't do anything special with its
oprofile backend. Also introduce a new CONFIG_HW_PERF_EVENTS symbol so
that we can fallback to using the timer interrupt for oprofile if the
CPU doesn't support perf events.

Also, to avoid a section mismatch warning we need to annotate
oprofile_arch_exit() with an __exit marker.

oprofile: Abstract the perf-events backend

Move the perf-events backend from arch/arm/oprofile into
drivers/oprofile so that the code can be shared between architectures.

This allows each architecture to maintain only a single copy of the PMU
accessor functions instead of one for both perf and OProfile. It also
becomes possible for other architectures to delete much of their
OProfile code in favour of the common code now available in
drivers/oprofile/oprofile_perf.c.

8 years agomodules: Fix module_bug_list list corruption race
Linus Torvalds [Tue, 5 Oct 2010 18:29:27 +0000]
modules: Fix module_bug_list list corruption race

With all the recent module loading cleanups, we've minimized the code
that sits under module_mutex, fixing various deadlocks and making it
possible to do most of the module loading in parallel.

However, that whole conversion totally missed the rather obscure code
that adds a new module to the list for BUG() handling.  That code was
doubly obscure because (a) the code itself lives in lib/bugs.c (for
dubious reasons) and (b) it gets called from the architecture-specific
"module_finalize()" rather than from generic code.

Calling it from arch-specific code makes no sense what-so-ever to begin
with, and is now actively wrong since that code isn't protected by the
module loading lock any more.

So this commit moves the "module_bug_{finalize,cleanup}()" calls away
from the arch-specific code, and into the generic code - and in the
process protects it with the module_mutex so that the list operations
are now safe.

Future fixups:
 - move the module list handling code into kernel/module.c where it
   belongs.
 - get rid of 'module_bug_list' and just use the regular list of modules
   (called 'modules' - imagine that) that we already create and maintain
   for other reasons.

xen: do not set xenstored_ready before xenbus_probe on hvm

Register_xenstore_notifier should guarantee that the caller gets

Therefore we revert "do not notify callers from

PV on HVM guests too.
In fact in case of PV on HVM guests xenstored is ready only after the

xenstored_ready before the call to xenbus_probe().

Hugh Dickins [Sun, 3 Oct 2010 00:49:08 +0000]
ksm: fix bad user data when swapping

Building under memory pressure, with KSM on 2.6.36-rc5, collapsed with
an internal compiler error: typically indicating an error in swapping.

Perhaps there's a timing issue which makes it now more likely, perhaps
it's just a long time since I tried for so long: this bug goes back to
KSM swapping in 2.6.33.

Notice how reuse_swap_page() allows an exclusive page to be reused, but
only does SetPageDirty if it can delete it from swap cache right then -
if it's currently under Writeback, it has to be left in cache and we
don't SetPageDirty, but the page can be reused.  Fine, the dirty bit
will get set in the pte; but notice how zap_pte_range() does not bother
to transfer pte_dirty to page_dirty when unmapping a PageAnon.

If KSM chooses to share such a page, it will look like a clean copy of
swapcache, and not be written out to swap when its memory is needed;
then stale data read back from swap when it's needed again.

We could fix this in reuse_swap_page() (or even refuse to reuse a
page under writeback), but it's more honest to fix my oversight in
KSM's write_protect_page().  Several days of testing on three machines
confirms that this fixes the issue they showed.

8 years agoksm: fix page_address_in_vma anon_vma oops
Hugh Dickins [Sun, 3 Oct 2010 00:46:06 +0000]
ksm: fix page_address_in_vma anon_vma oops

2.6.36-rc1 commit 21d0d443cdc1658a8c1484fdcece4803f0f96d0e "rmap:
resurrect page_address_in_vma anon_vma check" was right to resurrect
that check; but now that it's comparing anon_vma->roots instead of
just anon_vmas, there's a danger of oopsing on a NULL anon_vma.

In most cases no NULL anon_vma ever gets here; but it turns out that
occasionally KSM, when enabled on a forked or forking process, will
itself call page_address_in_vma() on a "half-KSM" page left over from
an earlier failed attempt to merge - whose page_anon_vma() is NULL.

It's my bug that those should be getting here at all: I thought they
were already dealt with, this oops proves me wrong, I'll fix it in
the next release - such pages are effectively pinned until their
process exits, since rmap cannot find their ptes (though swapoff can).

For now just work around it by making page_address_in_vma() safe (and
add a comment on why that check is wanted anyway).  A similar check
in __page_check_anon_rmap() is safe because do_page_add_anon_rmap()
already excluded KSM pages.

8 years agowriteback: always use sb->s_bdi for writeback purposes
Christoph Hellwig [Mon, 4 Oct 2010 12:25:33 +0000]
writeback: always use sb->s_bdi for writeback purposes

We currently use struct backing_dev_info for various different purposes.
Originally it was introduced to describe a backing device which includes
an unplug and congestion function and various bits of readahead information
and VM-relevant flags.  We're also using for tracking dirty inodes for
writeback.

To make writeback properly find all inodes we need to only access the
per-filesystem backing_device pointed to by the superblock in ->s_bdi
inside the writeback code, and not the instances pointeded to by
inode->i_mapping->backing_dev which can be overriden by special devices
or might not be set at all by some filesystems.

Long term we should split out the writeback-relevant bits of struct
backing_device_info (which includes more than the current bdi_writeback)
and only point to it from the superblock while leaving the traditional
backing device as a separate structure that can be overriden by devices.

The one exception for now is the block device filesystem which really
wants different writeback contexts for it's different (internal) inodes
to handle the writeout more efficiently.  For now we do this with
a hack in fs-writeback.c because we're so late in the cycle, but in
the future I plan to replace this with a superblock method that allows
for multiple writeback contexts per filesystem.

8 years agodrm/i915: Sanity check pread/pwrite
Chris Wilson [Sun, 26 Sep 2010 19:50:05 +0000]
drm/i915: Sanity check pread/pwrite

Move the access control up from the fast paths, which are no longer
universally taken first, up into the caller. This then duplicates some
sanity checking along the slow paths, but is much simpler.
Tracked as CVE-2010-2962.

hwmon: f71882fg: use a muxed resource lock for the Super I/O port

Sleep while acquiring a resource lock on the Super I/O port. This should
prevent collisions from causing the hardware probe to fail with -EBUSY.

8 years agodrm/i915: Use pipe state to tell when pipe is off
Keith Packard [Sun, 3 Oct 2010 07:33:06 +0000]
drm/i915: Use pipe state to tell when pipe is off

Instead of waiting for the display line value to settle, we can simply
wait for the pipe configuration register 'state' bit to turn off.

Contrarywise, disabling the plane will not cause the display line
value to stop changing, so instead we wait for the vblank interrupt
bit to get set. And, we only do this when we're not about to wait for
the pipe to turn off.

8 years agodrm/i915: vblank status not valid while training display port
Keith Packard [Sun, 3 Oct 2010 07:33:05 +0000]
drm/i915: vblank status not valid while training display port

While the display port is in training mode, vblank interrupts don't
occur. Because we have to wait for the display port output to turn on
before starting the training sequence, enable the output in 'normal'
mode so that we can tell when a vblank has occurred, then start the
training sequence.
