Dont touch fs_struct in drivers

The sound drivers and the pnpbios core test for current->root != NULL.  This
test seems to be unnecessary since we always have rootfs mounted before
initializing the drivers.

FLAT binaries: drop BINFMT_FLAT bad header magic warning

The warning issued by fs/binfmt_flat.c when the format handler is given a

with FDPIC ELF objects.  If you build a kernel that supports both FLAT and

12 years agocris: import memset.c from newlib: fixes compile error with newer (pre4.3) gcc
Jesper Nilsson [Fri, 15 Feb 2008 03:31:22 +0000]
cris: import memset.c from newlib: fixes compile error with newer (pre4.3) gcc

Adrian Bunk reported the following compile error with a SVN head GCC:

...
CC arch/cris/arch-v10/lib/memset.o
/home/bunk/linux/kernel-2.6/git/linux-2.6/arch/cris/arch-v10/lib/memset.c: In function 'memset':
/home/bunk/linux/kernel-2.6/git/linux-2.6/arch/cris/arch-v10/lib/memset.c:164: error: lvalue required as increment operand
/home/bunk/linux/kernel-2.6/git/linux-2.6/arch/cris/arch-v10/lib/memset.c:165: error: lvalue required as increment operand

/home/bunk/linux/kernel-2.6/git/linux-2.6/arch/cris/arch-v10/lib/memset.c:185: error: lvalue required as increment operand
/home/bunk/linux/kernel-2.6/git/linux-2.6/arch/cris/arch-v10/lib/memset.c:189: error: lvalue required as increment operand
/home/bunk/linux/kernel-2.6/git/linux-2.6/arch/cris/arch-v10/lib/memset.c:192: error: lvalue required as increment operand
... etc ...

This is due to the use of the construct:

*((long*)dst)++ = lc;

Which is no longer legal since casts don't return an lvalue.

The solution is to import the implementation from newlib,
which is continually autotested together with GCC mainline,
and uses the construct:

*(long *) dst = lc; dst += 4;

With this change, the generated code actually shrinks 76 bytes
since gcc notices that it can use autoincrement for the move
instruction in CRIS.

   text    data     bss     dec     hex filename
    304       0       0     304     130 memset.old.o
   text    data     bss     dec     hex filename
    228       0       0     228      e4 memset.o

Since this is an import of a file from newlib, I'm not touching
the formatting or correcting any checkpatch errors.

Note also that even if the two files for the CRIS v10 and CRIS v32
are identical at the moment, it might be possible to tweak the
CRIS v32 version. Thus, I'm not yet folding them into the same file,
at least not until we've done some research on it.

12 years agoLinux Kernel Markers: create modpost file
Mathieu Desnoyers [Wed, 13 Feb 2008 23:03:39 +0000]
Linux Kernel Markers: create modpost file

This adds some new magic in the MODPOST phase for CONFIG_MARKERS.  Analogous
to the Module.symvers file, the build will now write a Module.markers file
when CONFIG_MARKERS=y is set.  This file lists the name, defining module, and
format string of each marker, separated by \t characters.  This simple text
file can be used by offline build procedures for instrumentation code,
analogous to how System.map and Module.symvers can be useful to have for
kernels other than the one you are running right now.

The strings are made easy to extract by having the __trace_mark macro define
the name and format together in a single array called __mstrtab_* in the
__markers_strings section.  This is straightforward and reliable as long as
the marker structs are always defined by this macro.  It is an unreasonable
amount of hairy work to extract the string pointers from the __markers section
structs, which entails handling a relocation type for every machine under the
sun.

12 years agoLinux Kernel Markers: support multiple probes
Mathieu Desnoyers [Wed, 13 Feb 2008 23:03:37 +0000]
Linux Kernel Markers: support multiple probes

RCU style multiple probes support for the Linux Kernel Markers.  Common case
(one probe) is still fast and does not require dynamic allocation or a
supplementary pointer dereference on the fast path.

- Move preempt disable from the marker site to the callback.

Since we now have an internal callback, move the preempt disable/enable to the
callback instead of the marker site.

Since the callback change is done asynchronously (passing from a handler that
supports arguments to a handler that does not setup the arguments is no
arguments are passed), we can safely update it even if it is outside the
preempt disable section.

- Move probe arm to probe connection. Now, a connected probe is automatically
  armed.

Remove MARK_MAX_FORMAT_LEN, unused.

This patch modifies the Linux Kernel Markers API : it removes the probe
"arm/disarm" and changes the probe function prototype : it now expects a
va_list * instead of a "...".

If we want to have more than one probe connected to a marker at a given
time (LTTng, or blktrace, ssytemtap) then we need this patch. Without it,
connecting a second probe handler to a marker will fail.

It allow us, for instance, to do interesting combinations :

Do standard tracing with LTTng and, eventually, to compute statistics
with SystemTAP, or to have a special trigger on an event that would call
a systemtap script which would stop flight recorder tracing.

pcmcia: ipwireless depends on NETDEVICES

ipwireless (added by 099dc4fb62653f6019d78db55fba7a18ef02d65b) is clearly
a net device:

[ ... and many more ... ]

select strikes again. ipwireless selects PPP which in turn tries to select
SLHC, both of which are technically "protected" by an if NETDEVICES
in drivers/net/Kconfig. This leads to .config hilarity, with net suddenly
ending up in the SCSI menu:

#
# SCSI device support
#
# CONFIG_SCSI_DMA is not set
# CONFIG_SCSI_NETLINK is not set
CONFIG_PPP=y
# CONFIG_PHONE is not set

Curiously the SLHC select from PPP doesn't seem to happen, as there's no
CONFIG_SLHC=y (only CONFIG_PPP=y gets set) -- Kconfig bug? Caught with a
randconfig.

moduleparam: fix alpha, ia64 and ppc64 compile failures

On alpha, ia64 and ppc64 only relocations to local data can go into
read-only sections. The vast majority of module parameters use the global
generic param_set_*/param_get_* functions, so the 'const' attribute for
struct kernel_param is not only useless, but it also causes compile
failures due to 'section type conflict' in those rare cases where
param_set/get are local functions.

xtime_lock vs update_process_times

Commit d3d74453c34f8fd87674a8cf5b8a327c68f22e99 ("hrtimer: fixup the
HRTIMER_CB_IRQSAFE_NO_SOFTIRQ fallback") broke several archs, and since
only Russell bothered to merge the fix, and Greg to ACK his arch, I'm
sending this for merger.

I have confirmation that the Alpha bit results in a booting kernel.
That leaves: blackfin, frv, sh and sparc untested.

The deadlock in question was found by Russell:

  IRQ handle
    -> timer_tick() - xtime seqlock held for write
      -> update_process_times()
        -> run_local_timers()
          -> hrtimer_run_queues()
            -> hrtimer_get_softirq_time() - tries to get a read lock

Now, Thomas assures me the fix is trivial, only do_timer() needs to be
done under the xtime_lock, and update_process_times() can savely be
removed from under it.

acpi: fix acpi_os_read_pci_configuration() misuse of raw_pci_read()

The raw_pci_read() interface (as the raw_pci_ops->read() before it)
unconditionally fills in a 32-bit integer return value regardless of the
size of the operation requested.

So claiming to take a "void *" is wrong, as is passing in a pointer to
just a byte variable.

Noticed by pageexec when enabling -fstack-protector (which needs other

  eliminate runtime_code_page_mkexec() on machine without NX support.

- Use set_memory_x/nx in early_mapping_set_exec(). This eliminates the

When reboot_32.c and reboot_64.c were unified (commit 4d022e35fd...),
the machine_ops code was broken, leading to xen pvops kernels failing
to properly halt/poweroff/reboot etc. This fixes that up.

register names - which have been unified in commit:

getting out of sync.

[SCSI] sym53c416: fix module parameters

It looks like there's been a bug in the module parameter setup forever.
The upshot doesn't really matter, because even if no parameters are ever
set, we just call sym53c416_setup() three times, but the zero values in
the arrays eventually cause nothing to happen.  Unfortunately gcc has
started to notice this now too:

drivers/scsi/sym53c416.c:624: warning: the address of 'sym53c416' will always evaluate as 'true'

12 years agomempolicy: silently restrict nodemask to allowed nodes
KOSAKI Motohiro [Tue, 12 Feb 2008 04:30:22 +0000]
mempolicy: silently restrict nodemask to allowed nodes

Kosaki Motohito noted that "numactl --interleave=all ..." failed in the
presence of memoryless nodes.  This patch attempts to fix that problem.

Some background:

numactl --interleave=all calls set_mempolicy(2) with a fully populated
[out to MAXNUMNODES] nodemask.  set_mempolicy() [in do_set_mempolicy()]
calls contextualize_policy() which requires that the nodemask be a
subset of the current task's mems_allowed; else EINVAL will be returned.

A task's mems_allowed will always be a subset of node_states[N_HIGH_MEMORY]
i.e., nodes with memory.  So, a fully populated nodemask will be
declared invalid if it includes memoryless nodes.

  NOTE:  the same thing will occur when running in a cpuset
         with restricted mem_allowed--for the same reason:
         node mask contains dis-allowed nodes.

mbind(2), on the other hand, just masks off any nodes in the nodemask
that are not included in the caller's mems_allowed.

In each case [mbind() and set_mempolicy()], mpol_check_policy() will
complain [again, resulting in EINVAL] if the nodemask contains any
memoryless nodes.  This is somewhat redundant as mpol_new() will remove
memoryless nodes for interleave policy, as will bind_zonelist()--called
by mpol_new() for BIND policy.

Proposed fix:

1) modify contextualize_policy logic to:
   a) remember whether the incoming node mask is empty.
   b) if not, restrict the nodemask to allowed nodes, as is
      currently done in-line for mbind().  This guarantees
      that the resulting mask includes only nodes with memory.

      NOTE:  this is a [benign, IMO] change in behavior for
             set_mempolicy().  Dis-allowed nodes will be
             silently ignored, rather than returning an error.

   c) fold this code into mpol_check_policy(), replace 2 calls to
      contextualize_policy() to call mpol_check_policy() directly
      and remove contextualize_policy().

2) In existing mpol_check_policy() logic, after "contextualization":
   a) MPOL_DEFAULT:  require that in coming mask "was_empty"
   b) MPOL_{BIND|INTERLEAVE}:  require that contextualized nodemask
      contains at least one node.
   c) add a case for MPOL_PREFERRED:  if in coming was not empty
      and resulting mask IS empty, user specified invalid nodes.
      Return EINVAL.
   c) remove the now redundant check for memoryless nodes

3) remove the now redundant masking of policy nodes for interleave
   policy from mpol_new().

4) Now that mpol_check_policy() contextualizes the nodemask, remove
   the in-line nodes_and() from sys_mbind().  I believe that this
   restores mbind() to the behavior before the memoryless-nodes
   patch series.  E.g., we'll no longer treat an invalid nodemask
   with MPOL_PREFERRED as local allocation.

[ Patch history:

  v1 -> v2:
   - Communicate whether or not incoming node mask was empty to
     mpol_check_policy() for better error checking.
   - As suggested by David Rientjes, remove the now unused
     cpuset_nodes_subset_current_mems_allowed() from cpuset.h

  v2 -> v3:
   - As suggested by Kosaki Motohito, fold the "contextualization"
     of policy nodemask into mpol_check_policy().  Looks a little
     cleaner. ]

Jonathan Corbet [Mon, 11 Feb 2008 23:17:33 +0000]
Be more robust about bad arguments in get_user_pages()

So I spent a while pounding my head against my monitor trying to figure
out the vmsplice() vulnerability - how could a failure to check for
*read* access turn into a root exploit? It turns out that it's a buffer
overflow problem which is made easy by the way get_user_pages() is
coded.

In particular, "len" is a signed int, and it is only checked at the
*end* of a do {} while() loop.  So, if it is passed in as zero, the loop
will execute once and decrement len to -1.  At that point, the loop will
proceed until the next invalid address is found; in the process, it will
likely overflow the pages array passed in to get_user_pages().

I think that, if get_user_pages() has been asked to grab zero pages,
that's what it should do.  Thus this patch; it is, among other things,
enough to block the (already fixed) root exploit and any others which
might be lurking in similar code.  I also think that the number of pages
should be unsigned, but changing the prototype of this function probably
requires some more careful review.

[IA64] Fix build for sim_defconfig

Commit bdc807871d58285737d50dc6163d0feb72cb0dc2 broke the build
for this config because the sim_defconfig selects CONFIG_HZ=250
but include/asm-ia64/param.h has an ifdef for the simulator to
force HZ to 32.  So we ended up with a kernel/timeconst.h set
for HZ=250 ... which then failed the check for the right HZ
value and died with:

Drop the #ifdef magic from param.h and make force CONFIG_HZ=32
directly for the simulator.

12 years ago[SCSI] update SG_ALL to avoid causing chaining
James Bottomley [Sun, 10 Feb 2008 15:42:46 +0000]
[SCSI] update SG_ALL to avoid causing chaining

Since the sg chaining patches went in, our current value of 255 for
SG_ALL excites chaining on some drivers which cannot support it (and
would thus oops).  Redefine SG_ALL to mean no sg table size
preference, but use the single allocation (non chained) limit.  This
also helps for drivers that use it to size an internal table.

We'll do an opt in system later where truly chaining supporting
drivers can define their sg_tablesize to be anything up to
SCSI_MAX_SG_CHAIN_ELEMENTS.

Some controllers (VIA CX700) raise device error on SETXFER even after
mode configuration succeeded.  Update ata_dev_set_mode() such that
device error is ignored if transfer mode is configured correctly.  To
implement this, device is revalidated even after device error on
SETXFER.
