12 years ago[PATCH] Check for populated zone in __drain_pages
Christoph Lameter [Sat, 6 Jan 2007 00:37:02 +0000]
[PATCH] Check for populated zone in __drain_pages

Both process_zones() and drain_node_pages() check for populated zones
before touching pagesets.  However, __drain_pages does not do so,

This may result in a NULL pointer dereference for pagesets in unpopulated
zones if a NUMA setup is combined with cpu hotplug.

Initially the unpopulated zone has the pcp pointers pointing to the boot
pagesets.  Since the zone is not populated the boot pageset pointers will
not be changed during page allocator and slab bootstrap.

If a cpu is later brought down (first call to __drain_pages()) then the pcp
pointers for cpus in unpopulated zones are set to NULL since __drain_pages
does not first check for an unpopulated zone.

If the cpu is then brought up again then we call process_zones() which will
ignore the unpopulated zone.  So the pageset pointers will still be NULL.

If the cpu is then again brought down then __drain_pages will attempt to
drain pages by following the NULL pageset pointer for unpopulated zones.

[PATCH] hpt37x: Two important bug fixes

The HPT37x driver very carefully handles DMA completions and the needed
fixups are done on pci registers 0x50 and 0x52.  This is unfortunate
because the actual registers are 0x50 and 0x54.  Fixing this offset cures
the second channel problems reported.

Secondly there are some problems with the HPT370 and certain ATA drives.
The filter code however only filters ATAPI devices due to a reversed type
check.

useful to avoid excessive exits due to changing, for example, the ts flag.

It also means the kvm's copy of cr0 and cr4 may be stale with respect to these
bits.  most of the time this doesn't matter as these bits are not very
interesting.  Other times, however (for example when returning cr0 to
userspace), they are, so get the fresh contents of these bits from the guest
by means of a new arch operation.

[PATCH] Update the rtc-rs5c372 driver

 Bugfixes:
  - Handle RTCs which are configured to use 12-hour mode.
  - Never report bogus/un-initialized times.
  - Displaying "raw trim" requires not masking it first!
  - Fix the sysfs and procfs display of crystal and trim data.

 Features:
  - Handle other RTCs in this family, notably rv5c386/rv5c387.
  - Declare the other registers.
  - Provide alarm get/set functionality.
  - Handle AIE and UIE; but no IRQ handling yet.

 Cleanup:
  - Shrink object by not including needless sysfs or procfs support
  - We don't need no steenkin' forward declarations.  (Except one.)

Until the I2C framework merges "new style" driver support, matching
the driver model better, using rv5c chips or alarm IRQs requires a
separate board-specific patch.  (And an IRQ handler, handing off labor
through a work_struct...)

This uses the "method 3" register reads, but notes that it's done
to work around an evident i2c adapter driver bug.

12 years ago[PATCH] fix memory corruption from misinterpreted bad_inode_ops return values
Eric Sandeen [Sat, 6 Jan 2007 00:36:36 +0000]
[PATCH] fix memory corruption from misinterpreted bad_inode_ops return values

CVE-2006-5753 is for a case where an inode can be marked bad, switching
the ops to bad_inode_ops, which are all connected as:

static int return_EIO(void)
{
        return -EIO;
}

#define EIO_ERROR ((void *) (return_EIO))

static struct inode_operations bad_inode_ops =
{
        .create         = bad_inode_create
...etc...

The problem here is that the void cast causes return types to not be
promoted, and for ops such as listxattr which expect more than 32 bits of
return value, the 32-bit -EIO is interpreted as a large positive 64-bit
number, i.e. 0x00000000fffffffa instead of 0xfffffffa.

This goes particularly badly when the return value is taken as a number of
bytes to copy into, say, a user's buffer for example...

I originally had coded up the fix by creating a return_EIO_<TYPE> macro
for each return type, like this:

static int return_EIO_int(void)
{
return -EIO;
}
#define EIO_ERROR_INT ((void *) (return_EIO_int))

static struct inode_operations bad_inode_ops =
{
.create = EIO_ERROR_INT,
...etc...

but Al felt that it was probably better to create an EIO-returner for each
actual op signature.  Since so few ops share a signature, I just went ahead
& created an EIO function for each individual file & inode op that returns
a value.

[PATCH] Sanely size hash tables when using large base pages

At the moment the inode/dentry cache hash tables (common by way of
alloc_large_system_hash()) are incorrectly sized by their respective
detection logic when we attempt to use large base pages on systems with
little memory.

This results in odd behaviour when using a 64kB PAGE_SIZE, such as:

Dentry cache hash table entries: 8192 (order: -1, 32768 bytes)
Inode-cache hash table entries: 4096 (order: -2, 16384 bytes)

The mount cache hash table is seemingly the only one that gets this right
by directly taking PAGE_SIZE in to account.

The following patch attempts to catch the bogus values and round it up to
at least 0-order.

 - if injection fails due to a physical interrupt causing a vmexit so that
   it can be handled by the host.

In all cases the guest proceeds without processing the interrupt, reducing
the interactive feel and interrupt throughput of the guest.

This patch fixes the situation by allowing userspace to request an exit
when the 'interrupt window' opens, so that it can re-inject the interrupt
at the right time.  Guest interactivity is very visibly improved.

KVM does kmalloc() in an atomic section while having preemption disabled via

Ard van Breemen [Sat, 6 Jan 2007 00:36:21 +0000]
[PATCH] PCI: prevent down_read when pci_devices is empty

The pci_find_subsys gets called very early by obsolete ide setup parameters.
This is a bogus call since pci is not initialized yet, so the list is empty.
But in the mean time, interrupts get enabled by down_read.  This can result in
a kernel panic when the irq controller gets initialized.

This patch checks if the device list is empty before taking the semaphore, and
hence will not enable irq's.  Furthermore it will inform that it is called
while pci_devices is empty as a reminder that the ide code needs to be fixed.

The pci_get_subsys can get called in the same manner, and as such is patched
in the same manner.

[PATCH] kernelparams: detect if and which parameter parsing enabled irq's

The parsing of some kernel parameters seem to enable irq's at a stage that
irq's are not supposed to be enabled (Particularly the ide kernel parameters).

Having irq's enabled before the irq controller is initialized might lead to a
kernel panic.  This patch only detects this behaviour and warns about wich
parameter caused it.

The calls made by parse_parms to other initialization code might enable

Having interrupts on this early can make systems PANIC when they initialize
the IRQ controllers (which happens later in the code).  This patch detects
that irq's are enabled again, barfs about it and disables them again as a

12 years ago[PATCH] cdrom: set default timeout to 7 seconds
Jens Axboe [Wed, 3 Jan 2007 07:10:35 +0000]
[PATCH] cdrom: set default timeout to 7 seconds

It's a known fact that Windows times out commands after 7 seconds, so
drives generally try and respond if they can before that happens.  We
default to 5 seconds, which sometimes is a bit too short.

Jeremy Higdon reported here:

http://lkml.org/lkml/2007/1/1/145

that his drive takes longer than 5 seconds for a "read track
information" command, later confirming that it is about 6.7 seconds.

So just do the sane thing and change the default command timeout to 7
seconds to avoid other surprises.

[PATCH] x86_64: Fix dump_trace()

If caller passed the tsk, we should use it to validate a stack ptr.
Otherwise, sysrq-t and other debugging stuff doesn't work.
