10 years agosh: Remove superfluous setup_frame_reg call
Matt Fleming [Sat, 30 Jan 2010 17:37:25 +0000]
sh: Remove superfluous setup_frame_reg call

There's no need to setup the frame pointer again in
call_handle_tlbmiss. The frame pointer will already have been setup in
handle_interrupt.

10 years agosh: Don't continue unwinding across interrupts
Matt Fleming [Sat, 30 Jan 2010 17:36:20 +0000]
sh: Don't continue unwinding across interrupts

Unfortunately, due to poor DWARF info in current toolchains, unwinding
through interrutps cannot be done reliably. The problem is that the
DWARF info for function epilogues is wrong.

Take this standard epilogue sequence,

80003cc4:       e3 6f           mov     r14,r15
80003cc6:       26 4f           lds.l   @r15+,pr
80003cc8:       f6 6e           mov.l   @r15+,r14
<---- interrupt here
80003cca:       f6 6b           mov.l   @r15+,r11
80003ccc:       f6 6a           mov.l   @r15+,r10
80003cce:       f6 69           mov.l   @r15+,r9
80003cd0:       0b 00           rts

If we take an interrupt at the highlighted point, the DWARF info will
bogusly claim that the return address can be found at some offset from
the frame pointer, even though the frame pointer was just restored. The
worst part is if the unwinder finds a text address at the bogus stack
address - unwinding will continue, for a bit, until it finally comes
across an unexpected address on the stack and blows up.

The only solution is to stop unwinding once we've calculated the
function that was executing when the interrupt occurred. This PC can be
easily calculated from pt_regs->pc.

Matt Fleming [Wed, 27 Jan 2010 20:44:59 +0000]
sh: Setup frame pointer in handle_exception path

10 years agosh: Correct the offset of the return address in ret_from_exception
Matt Fleming [Wed, 27 Jan 2010 20:05:20 +0000]
sh: Correct the offset of the return address in ret_from_exception

The address that ret_from_exception and ret_from_irq will return to is
found in the stack slot for SPC, not PR. This error was causing the
DWARF unwinder to pick up the wrong return address on the stack and then
unwind using the unwind tables for the wrong function.

While I'm here I might as well add CFI annotations for the other
registers since they could be useful when unwinding.

usb: r8a66597-hcd: Fix up spinlock recursion in root hub polling.

The current root hub polling code exhibits a spinlock recursion on the
private controller lock. r8a66597_root_hub_control() is called from
r8a66597_timer() which grabs the lock and disables IRQs. The following
chain emerges:

  r8a66597_timer() <-- lock taken
    r8a66597_root_hub_control()
      r8a66597_check_syssts()
        usb_hcd_poll_rh_status() <-- acquires the same lock
/* insert death here */

The entire chain requires IRQs to be disabled, so we just unlock and
relock around the call to usb_hcd_poll_rh_status() while leaving the
IRQ state unchanged.

usb: r8a66597-hcd: Flush the D-cache for the pipe-in transfer buffers.

This implements the same D-cache flushing logic for r8a66597-hcd as
Catalin's isp1760 (http://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/76391/) change,
with the same note applying here as well:

    When the HDC driver writes the data to the transfer buffers it
    pollutes the D-cache (unlike DMA drivers where the device writes
    the data). If the corresponding pages get mapped into user space,
    there are no additional cache flushing operations performed and
    this causes random user space faults on architectures with
    separate I and D caches (Harvard) or those with aliasing D-cache.

This fixes up crashes during USB boot on SH7724 and others:

omap: Disable serial port autoidle by default

Currently the omap serial clocks are autoidled after 5 seconds.
However, this causes lost characters on the serial ports. As this
is considered non-standard behaviour for Linux, disable the timeout.

Note that this will also cause blocking of any deeper omap sleep
states.

To enable the autoidling of the serial ports, do something like
this for each serial port:

# echo 5 > /sys/devices/platform/serial8250.0/sleep_timeout
# echo 5 > /sys/devices/platform/serial8250.1/sleep_timeout

3630 has more mux signals than 34xx. The additional pins
exist in omap36xx_cbp_subset, but are not initialized
as the superset is missing these offsets. This causes

futex: Handle futex value corruption gracefully

The WARN_ON in lookup_pi_state which complains about a mismatch
between pi_state->owner->pid and the pid which we retrieved from the
user space futex is completely bogus.

The code just emits the warning and then continues despite the fact
that it detected an inconsistent state of the futex. A conveniant way
for user space to spam the syslog.

Replace the WARN_ON by a consistency check. If the values do not match
return -EINVAL and let user space deal with the mess it created.

This also fixes the missing task_pid_vnr() when we compare the
pi_state->owner pid with the futex value.

futex: Handle user space corruption gracefully

If the owner of a PI futex dies we fix up the pi_state and set
pi_state->owner to NULL. When a malicious or just sloppy programmed
user space application sets the futex value to 0 e.g. by calling
pthread_mutex_init(), then the futex can be acquired again. A new
waiter manages to enqueue itself on the pi_state w/o damage, but on
unlock the kernel dereferences pi_state->owner and oopses.

Prevent this by checking pi_state->owner in the unlock path. If
pi_state->owner is not current we know that user space manipulated the
futex value. Ignore the mess and return -EINVAL.

This catches the above case and also the case where a task hijacks the
futex by setting the tid value and then tries to unlock it.

10 years agofutex_lock_pi() key refcnt fix

futex_lock_pi() key refcnt fix

This fixes a futex key reference count bug in futex_lock_pi(),
where a key's reference count is incremented twice but decremented
only once, causing the backing object to not be released.

If the futex is created in a temporary file in an ext3 file system,
this bug causes the file's inode to become an "undead" orphan,
which causes an oops from a BUG_ON() in ext3_put_super() when the
file system is unmounted. glibc's test suite is known to trigger this,
see <http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=14256>.

The bug is a regression from 2.6.28-git3, namely Peter Zijlstra's
38d47c1b7075bd7ec3881141bb3629da58f88dab "[PATCH] futex: rely on
get_user_pages() for shared futexes". That commit made get_futex_key()
also increment the reference count of the futex key, and updated its
callers to decrement the key's reference count before returning.
Unfortunately the normal exit path in futex_lock_pi() wasn't corrected:
the reference count is incremented by get_futex_key() and queue_lock(),
but the normal exit path only decrements once, via unqueue_me_pi().
The fix is to put_futex_key() after unqueue_me_pi(), since 2.6.31
this is easily done by 'goto out_put_key' rather than 'goto out'.

Trond Myklebust [Wed, 3 Feb 2010 13:27:22 +0000]
NFS: Fix an Oops when truncating a file

The VM/VFS does not allow mapping->a_ops->invalidatepage() to fail.
Unfortunately, nfs_wb_page_cancel() may fail if a fatal signal occurs.
Since the NFS code assumes that the page stays mapped for as long as the
writeback is active, we can end up Oopsing (among other things).

The only safe fix here is to convert nfs_wait_on_request(), so as to make
it uninterruptible (as is already the case with wait_on_page_writeback()).

GFS2: Extend umount wait coverage to full glock lifetime

Although all glocks are, by the time of the umount glock wait,
scheduled for demotion, some of them haven't made it far
enough through the process for the original set of waiting
code to wait for them.

This extends the ref count to the whole glock lifetime in order
to ensure that the waiting does catch all glocks. It does make

When I use markup_oops.pl parse a x8664 oops, I got:

objdump: --start-address: bad number: NaN
No matching code found
This is because:

  DB<3> p $decodestart
NaN

This NaN is from:
main::(./m.pl:176): my $decodestart = Math::BigInt->from_hex("0x$target") - Math::BigInt->from_hex("0x$func_offset");
  DB<2> p $func_offset
0x175

There is already a "0x" in $func_offset, another 0x makes it a NaN.

The $func_offset is from line:

if ($line =~ /RIP: 0010:\[\<[0-9a-f]+\>\]  \[\<[0-9a-f]+\>\] ([a-zA-Z0-9\_]+)\+(0x[0-9a-f]+)\/0x[a-f0-9]/) {
$function = $1;
$func_offset = $2;
}

I make a patch to change "(0x[0-9a-f]+)\/0x[a-f0-9]/)" to "0x([0-9a-f]+)\/0x[a-f0-9]/)".

devmem: check vmalloc address on kmem read/write

Otherwise vmalloc_to_page() will BUG().

This also makes the kmem read/write implementation aligned with mem(4):
"References to nonexistent locations cause errors to be returned." Here we
return -ENXIO (inspired by Hugh) if no bytes have been transfered to/from
user space, otherwise return partial read/write results.

10 years agomm: flush dcache before writing into page to avoid alias
anfei zhou [Tue, 2 Feb 2010 21:44:02 +0000]
mm: flush dcache before writing into page to avoid alias

The cache alias problem will happen if the changes of user shared mapping
is not flushed before copying, then user and kernel mapping may be mapped
into two different cache line, it is impossible to guarantee the coherence
after iov_iter_copy_from_user_atomic.  So the right steps should be:

flush_dcache_page(page);
kmap_atomic(page);
write to page;
kunmap_atomic(page);
flush_dcache_page(page);

More precisely, we might create two new APIs flush_dcache_user_page and
flush_dcache_kern_page to replace the two flush_dcache_page accordingly.

Here is a snippet tested on omap2430 with VIPT cache, and I think it is
not ARM-specific:

int val = 0x11111111;
fd = open("abc", O_RDWR);
addr = mmap(NULL, 4096, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE, MAP_SHARED, fd, 0);
*(addr+0) = 0x44444444;
tmp = *(addr+0);
*(addr+1) = 0x77777777;
write(fd, &val, sizeof(int));
close(fd);

The results are not always 0x11111111 0x77777777 at the beginning as expected.  Sometimes we see 0x44444444 0x77777777.

10 years agoidr: fix a critical misallocation bug
Tejun Heo [Tue, 2 Feb 2010 21:43:58 +0000]
idr: fix a critical misallocation bug

Eric Paris located a bug in idr.  With IDR_BITS of 6, it grows to three
layers when id 4096 is first allocated.  When that happens, idr wraps
incorrectly and searches the idr array ignoring the high bits.  The
following test code from Eric demonstrates the bug nicely.

#include <linux/idr.h>
#include <linux/kernel.h>
#include <linux/module.h>

static DEFINE_IDR(test_idr);

int init_module(void)
{
int ret, forty95, forty96;
void *addr;

/* add 2 entries both with 4095 as the start address */
again1:
if (!idr_pre_get(&test_idr, GFP_KERNEL))
return -ENOMEM;
ret = idr_get_new_above(&test_idr, (void *)4095, 4095, &forty95);
if (ret) {
if (ret == -EAGAIN)
goto again1;
return ret;
}
if (forty95 != 4095)
printk(KERN_ERR "hmmm, forty95=%d\n", forty95);

again2:
if (!idr_pre_get(&test_idr, GFP_KERNEL))
return -ENOMEM;
ret = idr_get_new_above(&test_idr, (void *)4096, 4095, &forty96);
if (ret) {
if (ret == -EAGAIN)
goto again2;
return ret;
}
if (forty96 != 4096)
printk(KERN_ERR "hmmm, forty96=%d\n", forty96);

/* try to find the 2 entries, noticing that 4096 broke */
addr = idr_find(&test_idr, forty95);
if ((int)addr != forty95)
printk(KERN_ERR "hmmm, after find forty95=%d addr=%d\n", forty95, (int)addr);
addr = idr_find(&test_idr, forty96);
if ((int)addr != forty96)
printk(KERN_ERR "hmmm, after find forty96=%d addr=%d\n", forty96, (int)addr);
/* really weird, the entry which should be at 4096 is actually at 0!! */
addr = idr_find(&test_idr, 0);
if ((int)addr)
printk(KERN_ERR "found an entry at id=0 for addr=%d\n", (int)addr);

idr_remove(&test_idr, forty95);
idr_remove(&test_idr, forty96);

return 0;
}

This happens because when sub_alloc() back tracks it doesn't always do it
step-by-step while the over-the-limit detection assumes step-by-step
backtracking.  The logic in sub_alloc() looks like the following.

  restart:
    clear pa[top level + 1] for end cond detection
    l = top level
    while (true) {
search for empty slot at this level
if (not found) {
    push id to the next possible value
    l++
A:     if (pa[l] is clear)
        failed, return asking caller to grow the tree
    if (going up 1 level gives more slots to search)
        continue the while loop above with the incremented l
    else
C:         goto restart
}
adjust id accordingly to the found slot
if (l == 0)
    return found id;
create lower level if not there yet
record pa[l] and l--
    }

Test A is the fail exit condition but this assumes that failure is
propagated upwared one level at a time but the B optimization path breaks
the assumption and restarts the whole thing with a start value which is
above the possible limit with the current layers.  sub_alloc() assumes the
start id value is inside the limit when called and test A is the only exit
condition check, so it ends up searching for empty slot while ignoring
high set bit.

So, for 4095->4096 test, level0 search fails but pa[1] contains a valid
pointer.  However, going up 1 level wouldn't give any more empty slot so
it takes C and when the whole thing restarts nobody notices the high bit
set beyond the top level.

This patch fixes the bug by changing the fail exit condition check to full
id limit check.

Getting it is not used, let's drop support for notifications about
(un)registered events from connector.
Another option was to check credentials on receiving, but we can always
restore it without bugs if needed, but genetlink has a wider code base
and none complained, that userspace can not get notification when some
other clients were (un)registered.

Kudos for Sebastian Krahmer <krahmer@suse.de>, who found a bug in the
code.

Nick Piggin [Mon, 1 Feb 2010 11:25:57 +0000]
mm: purge fragmented percpu vmap blocks

Improve handling of fragmented per-CPU vmaps.  We previously don't free
up per-CPU maps until all its addresses have been used and freed.  So
fragmented blocks could fill up vmalloc space even if they actually had
no active vmap regions within them.

Add some logic to allow all CPUs to have these blocks purged in the case
of failure to allocate a new vm area, and also put some logic to trim
such blocks of a current CPU if we hit them in the allocation path (so
as to avoid a large build up of them).

Christoph reported some vmap allocation failures when using the per CPU
vmap APIs in XFS, which cannot be reproduced after this patch and the
previous bug fix.

mm: percpu-vmap fix RCU list walking

RCU list walking of the per-cpu vmap cache was broken.  It did not use
RCU primitives, and also the union of free_list and rcu_head is
obviously wrong (because free_list is indeed the list we are RCU
walking).

While we are there, remove a couple of unused fields from an earlier
iteration.

These APIs aren't actually used anywhere, because of problems with the
XFS conversion.  Christoph has now verified that the problems are solved
with these patches.  Also it is an exported interface, so I think it
will be good to be merged now (and Christoph wants to get the XFS

Fix 'flush_old_exec()/setup_new_exec()' split

Commit 221af7f87b9 ("Split 'flush_old_exec' into two functions") split
the function at the point of no return - ie right where there were no
more error cases to check.  That made sense from a technical standpoint,
but when we then also combined it with the actual personality setting
going in between flush_old_exec() and setup_new_exec(), it needs to be a
bit more careful.

In particular, we need to make sure that we really flush the old
personality bits in the 'flush' stage, rather than later in the 'setup'
stage, since otherwise we might be flushing the _new_ personality state
that we're just setting up.

So this moves the flags and personality flushing (and 'flush_thread()',
which is the arch-specific function that generally resets lazy FP state
etc) of the old process into flush_old_exec(), so that it doesn't affect
any state that execve() is setting up for the new process environment.

This was reported by Michal Simek as breaking his Microblaze qemu
environment.

Vivek Goyal [Tue, 2 Feb 2010 19:45:46 +0000]
cfq-iosched: Do not idle on async queues

Few weeks back, Shaohua Li had posted similar patch. I am reposting it
with more test results.

This patch does two things.

- Do not idle on async queues.

- It also changes the write queue depth CFQ drives (cfq_may_dispatch()).
  Currently, we seem to driving queue depth of 1 always for WRITES. This is
  true even if there is only one write queue in the system and all the logic
  of infinite queue depth in case of single busy queue as well as slowly
  increasing queue depth based on last delayed sync request does not seem to
  be kicking in at all.

This patch will allow deeper WRITE queue depths (subjected to the other
WRITE queue depth contstraints like cfq_quantum and last delayed sync
request).

Shaohua Li had reported getting more out of his SSD. For me, I have got
one Lun exported from an HP EVA and when pure buffered writes are on, I
can get more out of the system. Following are test results of pure
buffered writes (with end_fsync=1) with vanilla and patched kernel. These
results are average of 3 sets of run with increasing number of threads.

bufwfs    3   16  0              0              299260         1.70731e+06

I also ran buffered writes along with some sequential reads and some
buffered reads going on in the system on a SATA disk because the potential
risk could be that we should not be driving queue depth higher in presence
of sync IO going to keep the max clat low.

Markus Pietrek [Tue, 2 Feb 2010 02:29:15 +0000]
spi: spi_sh_msiof: Fixed data sampling on the correct edge

The spi_sh_msiof.c driver presently misconfigures REDG and TEDG. TEDG==0
outputs data at the **rising edge** of the clock and REDG==0 samples data
at the **falling edge** of the clock. Therefore for SPI, TEDG must be
equal to REDG, otherwise the last byte received is not sampled in SPI
mode 3.

This brings the driver in line with the SH7723 HW Reference Manual
settings documented in Figures 20.20 and 20.21 ("SPI Clock and data
timing").

10 years agoMIPS: Alchemy: Fix dbdma ring destruction memory debugcheck.
Manuel Lauss [Tue, 26 Jan 2010 19:39:33 +0000]
MIPS: Alchemy: Fix dbdma ring destruction memory debugcheck.

DBDMA descriptors need to be located at 32-byte aligned addresses;
however kmalloc in conjunction with the SLAB allocator and
CONFIG_DEBUG_SLUB enabled doesn't deliver any.  The dbdma code works
around that by allocating a larger area and realigning the start
address within it.

When freeing a channel however this adjustment is not taken into
account which results in an oops:

Kernel bug detected[#1]:
[...]
Call Trace:
[<80186010>] cache_free_debugcheck+0x284/0x318
[<801869d8>] kfree+0xe8/0x2a0

[<80189018>] sys_close+0x9c/0xe4
[<801022a0>] stack_done+0x20/0x3c

Fix this by recording the address delivered by kmalloc() and using
it as parameter to kfree().

This fix is only necessary with the SLAB allocator and CONFIG_DEBUG_SLAB
enabled;  non-debug SLAB, SLUB do return nicely aligned addresses,
debug-enabled SLUB currently panics early in the boot process.

GFS2: Don't withdraw on partial rindex entries

ince gfs2 writes the rindex file a block at a time, and releases the
exclusive lock after each block, it is possible that another process
will grab the lock in the middle of the write.  Since rindex entries are
not an even divisor of blocks, that other process may see partial
entries.  On grows, this is fine.  The process can simply ignore the the
partial entires. Previously, the code withdrew when it saw partial
entries. Now it simply ignores them.

10 years agosoftlockup: Add sched_clock_tick() to avoid kernel warning on kgdb resume
Jason Wessel [Wed, 27 Jan 2010 22:25:22 +0000]
softlockup: Add sched_clock_tick() to avoid kernel warning on kgdb resume

When CONFIG_HAVE_UNSTABLE_SCHED_CLOCK is set, sched_clock() gets
the time from hardware such as the TSC on x86. In this
configuration kgdb will report a softlock warning message on
resuming or detaching from a debug session.

Sequence of events in the problem case:

 1) "cpu sched clock" and "hardware time" are at 100 sec prior
    to a call to kgdb_handle_exception()

 2) Debugger waits in kgdb_handle_exception() for 80 sec and on
    exit the following is called ...  touch_softlockup_watchdog() -->
    __raw_get_cpu_var(touch_timestamp) = 0;

 3) "cpu sched clock" = 100s (it was not updated, because the
    interrupt was disabled in kgdb) but the "hardware time" = 180 sec

 4) The first timer interrupt after resuming from
    kgdb_handle_exception updates the watchdog from the "cpu sched clock"

update_process_times() { ...  run_local_timers() -->
softlockup_tick() --> check (touch_timestamp == 0) (it is "YES"
here, we have set "touch_timestamp = 0" at kgdb) -->
__touch_softlockup_watchdog() ***(A)--> reset "touch_timestamp"
to "get_timestamp()" (Here, the "touch_timestamp" will still be
set to 100s.)  ...

    scheduler_tick() ***(B)--> sched_clock_tick() (update "cpu sched
    clock" to "hardware time" = 180s) ...  }

 5) The Second timer interrupt handler appears to have a large
    jump and trips the softlockup warning.

update_process_times() { ...  run_local_timers() -->
softlockup_tick() --> "cpu sched clock" - "touch_timestamp" =
180s-100s > 60s --> printk "soft lockup error messages" ...  }

note: ***(A) reset "touch_timestamp" to
"get_timestamp(this_cpu)"

Why is "touch_timestamp" 100 sec, instead of 180 sec?

When CONFIG_HAVE_UNSTABLE_SCHED_CLOCK is set, the call trace of
get_timestamp() is:

get_timestamp(this_cpu)
 -->cpu_clock(this_cpu)
 -->sched_clock_cpu(this_cpu)
 -->__update_sched_clock(sched_clock_data, now)

The __update_sched_clock() function uses the GTOD tick value to
create a window to normalize the "now" values.  So if "now"
value is too big for sched_clock_data, it will be ignored.

The fix is to invoke sched_clock_tick() to update "cpu sched
clock" in order to recover from this state.  This is done by
introducing the function touch_softlockup_watchdog_sync(). This
allows kgdb to request that the sched clock is updated when the
watchdog thread runs the first time after a resume from kgdb.
