13 years ago[PATCH] de_thread: Don't confuse users do_each_thread.
Eric W. Biederman [Mon, 10 Apr 2006 23:16:49 +0000]
[PATCH] de_thread: Don't confuse users do_each_thread.

Oleg Nesterov spotted two interesting bugs with the current de_thread
code.  The simplest is a long standing double decrement of
__get_cpu_var(process_counts) in __unhash_process.  Caused by
two processes exiting when only one was created.

The other is that since we no longer detach from the thread_group list
it is possible for do_each_thread when run under the tasklist_lock to
see the same task_struct twice.  Once on the task list as a
thread_group_leader, and once on the thread list of another
thread.

The double appearance in do_each_thread can cause a double increment
of mm_core_waiters in zap_threads resulting in problems later on in
coredump_wait.

To remedy those two problems this patch takes the simple approach
of changing the old thread group leader into a child thread.
The only routine in release_task that cares is __unhash_process,
and it can be trivially seen that we handle cleaning up a
thread group leader properly.

Since de_thread doesn't change the pid of the exiting leader process
and instead shares it with the new leader process.  I change
thread_group_leader to recognize group leadership based on the
group_leader field and not based on pids.  This should also be
slightly cheaper then the existing thread_group_leader macro.

I performed a quick audit and I couldn't see any user of
thread_group_leader that cared about the difference.

David Howells [Mon, 10 Apr 2006 14:15:21 +0000]
[Security] Keys: Fix oops when adding key to non-keyring

This fixes the problem of an oops occuring when a user attempts to add a
key to a non-keyring key [CVE-2006-1522].

The problem is that __keyring_search_one() doesn't check that the
keyring it's been given is actually a keyring.

I've fixed this problem by:

 (1) declaring that caller of __keyring_search_one() must guarantee that
     the keyring is a keyring; and

 (2) making key_create_or_update() check that the keyring is a keyring,
     and return -ENOTDIR if it isn't.

This can be tested by:

[TG3]: Speed up SRAM access (2nd version)

Speed up SRAM read and write functions if possible by using MMIO
instead of config. cycles. With this change, the post reset signature
done at the end of D3 power change must now be moved before the D3
power change.

IBM reported a problem on powerpc blades during ethtool self test that
was caused by the memory test taking excessively long. Config.  cycles
are very slow on powerpc and the memory test can take more than 10
seconds to complete using config. cycles.

David Miller informed me that an earlier version of the patch caused
problems on sparc64 systems with built-in tg3 chips. This version
fixes the problem by excluding all SUN built-in tg3 chips from doing
MMIO SRAM access.

TG3_FLAG_EEPROM_WRITE_PROT is also set unconditionally when
TG3_FLG2_SUN_570X is set. This should be sane as all SUN chips are
built-in and do not require Vaux switching.

Herbert Xu [Tue, 4 Apr 2006 20:50:45 +0000]
[INET]: Move no-tunnel ICMP error to tunnel4/tunnel6

This patch moves the sending of ICMP messages when there are no IPv4/IPv6
tunnels present to tunnel4/tunnel6 respectively.  Please note that for now
if xfrm4_tunnel/xfrm6_tunnel is loaded then no ICMP messages will ever be
sent.  This is similar to how we handle AH/ESP/IPCOMP.

This move fixes the bug where we always send an ICMP message when there is
no ip6_tunnel device present for a given packet even if it is later handled
by IPsec.  It also causes ICMP messages to be sent when no IPIP tunnel is
present.

I've decided to use the "port unreachable" ICMP message over the current
value of "address unreachable" (and "protocol unreachable" by GRE) because
it is not ambiguous unlike the other ones which can be triggered by other
conditions.  There seems to be no standard specifying what value must be
used so this change should be OK.  In fact we should change GRE to use
this value as well.

Incidentally, this patch also fixes a fairly serious bug in xfrm6_tunnel
where we don't check whether the embedded IPv6 header is present before
dereferencing it for the inside source address.

This patch is inspired by a previous patch by Hugo Santos <hsantos@av.it.pt>.

controller set up by the BIOS so that it conflicts with the e820 memory
map, and needs to be relocated. See

John Blackwood [Fri, 7 Apr 2006 17:50:25 +0000]
[PATCH] x86_64: Plug GS leak in arch_prctl()

In linux-2.6.16, we have noticed a problem where the gs base value
returned from an arch_prtcl(ARCH_GET_GS, ...) call will be incorrect if:

   - the current/calling task has NOT set its own gs base yet to a
     non-zero value,

   - some other task that ran on the same processor previously set their
     own gs base to a non-zero value.

In this situation, the ARCH_GET_GS code will read and return the
MSR_KERNEL_GS_BASE msr register.

However, since the __switch_to() code does NOT load/zero the
MSR_KERNEL_GS_BASE register when the task that is switched IN has a zero
next->gs value, the caller of arch_prctl(ARCH_GET_GS, ...) will get back
the value of some previous tasks's gs base value instead of 0.

    Change the arch_prctl() ARCH_GET_GS code to only read and return
    the MSR_KERNEL_GS_BASE msr register if the 'gs' register of the calling
    task is non-zero.

    Side note: Since in addition to using arch_prctl(ARCH_SET_GS, ...),
    a task can also setup a gs base value by using modify_ldt() and write
    an index value into 'gs' from user space, the patch below reads
    'gs' instead of using thread.gs, since in the modify_ldt() case,
    the thread.gs value will be 0, and incorrect value would be returned
    (the task->thread.gs value).

    When the user has not set its own gs base value and the 'gs'
    register is zero, then the MSR_KERNEL_GS_BASE register will not be
    read and a value of zero will be returned by reading and returning
    'task->thread.gs'.

    The first patch shown below is an attempt at implementing this
    approach.

[PATCH] x86_64: Fix drift with HPET timer enabled

If the HPET timer is enabled, the clock can drift by ~3 seconds a day.
This is due to the HPET timer not being initialized with the correct
setting (still using PIT count).

If HZ changes, this drift can become even more pronounced.

HPET patch initializes tick_nsec with correct tick_nsec settings for
HPET timer.

Vojtech comments:

  "It's not entirely correct (it assumes the HPET ticks totally
   exactly), but it's significantly better than assuming the PIT error
   there."

Andi Kleen [Fri, 7 Apr 2006 17:49:45 +0000]
[PATCH] i386: Consolidate modern APIC handling

AMD systems have a modern APIC that supports 8 bit IDs, but
don't have a XAPIC version number.  Add a new "modern_apic"
subfunction that handles this correctly and use it (nearly)
everywhere where XAPIC is tested for.

I removed one wart: the code specified that external APICs
would use an 8bit APIC ID. But I checked a real 82093 data sheet
and it says clearly that they only use 4bit. So I removed
this special case since it would a bit awkward to implement now.

I removed the valid APIC tests in mptable parsing completely. On any modern
system they only check against the full field width (8bit) anyways
and are no-ops. This also fixes them doing the wrong thing
on >8 core Opterons.

This makes i386 boot again on 16 core Opterons.

until these were explicitely disabled with noapic.

Usually this resulted in a non booting configuration unless
"nolapic noapic" was used.

I also disabled the local APIC parsing in this case, although

a "is this entire range in e820 with THIS attribute", but no such

[PATCH] x86_64: Handle empty PXMs that only contain hotplug memory

The node setup code would try to allocate the node metadata in the node
itself, but that fails if there is no memory in there.

This can happen with memory hotplug when the hotplug area defines an so
far empty node.

Now use bootmem to try to allocate the mem_map in other nodes.

And if it fails don't panic, but just ignore the node.

To make this work I added a new __alloc_bootmem_nopanic function that
does what its name implies.

TBD should try to use nearby nodes here.  Currently we just use any.
It's hard to do it better because bootmem doesn't have proper fallback
lists yet.

[PATCH] x86_64: Reserve SRAT hotadd memory on x86-64

From: Keith Mannthey, Andi Kleen

Implement memory hotadd without sparsemem. The memory in the SRAT
hotadd area is just preserved instead and can be activated later.

There are a few restrictions:
- Only one continuous hotadd area allowed per node

The main problem is dealing with the many buggy SRAT tables
that are out there. The strategy here is to reject anything
suspicious.

Originally from Keith Mannthey, with several hacks and changes by AK
and also contributions from Andrew Morton

[ TBD: Problems pointed out by KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki <kamezawa.hiroyu@jp.fujitsu.com>:

 1) Goto's rebuild_zonelist patch will not work if CONFIG_MEMORY_HOTPLUG=n.

    Rebuilding zonelist is necessary when the system has just memory <
    4G at boot, and hot add memory > 4G.  because x86_64 has DMA32,
    ZONE_NORAML is not included into zonelist at boot time if system
    doesn't have memory >4G at boot.

    [AK: should just force the higher zones at boot time when SRAT tells us]

 2) zone and node's spanned_pages and present_pages are not incremented.
    They should be.

    For example, our server (ia64/Fujitsu PrimeQuest) can equip memory
    from 4G to 1T(maybe 2T in future), and SRAT will *always* say we have
    possible 1T +memory.  (Microsoft requires "write all possible memory
    in SRAT") When we reserve memmap for possible 1T memory, Linux will
    not work well in +minimum 4G configuraion ;)

    [AK: needs limiting to 5-10% of max memory]
