[PATCH] Add TAINT_USER and ability to set taint flags from userspace

Allow taint flags to be set from userspace by writing to
/proc/sys/kernel/tainted, and add a new taint flag, TAINT_USER, to be used
when userspace has potentially done something dangerous that might
compromise the kernel.  This will allow support personnel to ask further
questions about what may have caused the user taint flag to have been set.

For example, they might examine the logs of the realtime JVM to see if the

completely-non-portable direct access to physical memory feature which MUST

The PNP framework doesn't export "pnp_bus_type", which is an unfortunate
exception to the policy followed by pretty much every other bus.  I noticed
this when I had to find a device in order to provide its platform_data.

Note that per advice from Arjan, the "export" scope has been been minimized to
avoid the hundred-plus bytes needed to support access from modules.  In this
case, the symbol is only needed by statically linked kernel code that lives
outside the drivers/pnp directory.

[PATCH] ext2: skip pages past number of blocks in ext2_find_entry

This one was pointed out on the MOKB site:
http://kernelfun.blogspot.com/2006/11/mokb-09-11-2006-linux-26x-ext2checkpage.html

If a directory's i_size is corrupted, ext2_find_entry() will keep
processing pages until the i_size is reached, even if there are no more
blocks associated with the directory inode.  This patch puts in some
minimal sanity-checking so that we don't keep checking pages (and issuing
errors) if we know there can be no more data to read, based on the block
count of the directory inode.

This is somewhat similar in approach to the ext3 patch I sent earlier this
year.

unplug isn't supported by this patch.  The thought was that at minumum a new
buffer needs to be added when a cpu comes up, but it wasn't worth the effort
to remove buffers on cpu down since they'd be freed soon anyway when the

12 years ago[PATCH] scrub non-__GLIBC__ checks in linux/socket.h and linux/stat.h
Mike Frysinger [Sat, 10 Feb 2007 09:45:01 +0000]
[PATCH] scrub non-__GLIBC__ checks in linux/socket.h and linux/stat.h

Userspace should be worrying about userspace, so having the socket.h
and stat.h pollute the namespace in the non-glibc case is wrong and
pretty much prevents any other libc from utilizing these headers
sanely unless they set up the __GLIBC__ define themselves (which
sucks)

Tilman Schmidt [Sat, 10 Feb 2007 09:45:00 +0000]
[PATCH] consolidate line discipline number definitions

The line discipline numbers N_* are currently defined for each architecture
individually, but (except for a seeming mistake) identically, in
asm/termios.h.  There is no obvious reason why these numbers should be
architecture specific, nor any apparent relationship with the termios
structure.  The total number of these, NR_LDISCS, is defined in linux/tty.h
anyway.  So I propose the following patch which moves the definitions of
the individual line disciplines to linux/tty.h too.

Three of these numbers (N_MASC, N_PROFIBUS_FDL, and N_SMSBLOCK) are unused
in the current kernel, but the patch still keeps the complete set in case
there are plans to use them yet.

When igrab() is calling __iget() on an inode it should check if
clear_inode() has been called on the inode already.  Otherwise there is a
race window between clear_inode() and destroy_inode() where igrab() calls
__iget() which leads to already free inodes on the inode lists.

My __acquire_lock() cleanup introduced a locking bug: on SMP systems we'd
release a non-owned graph lock.  Fix this by moving the graph unlock back,
and by leaving the max_lockdep_depth variable update possibly racy.  (we

[PATCH] struct vfsmount: keep mnt_count & mnt_expiry_mark away from mnt_flags

I noticed cache misses in touch_atime() that can be avoided if we keep
mnt_count & mnt_expiry_mark in a different cache line than mnt_flags
(mostly read)

mnt_count & mnt_expiry_mark are modified each time a file is opened/closed
in a file system.

touch_atime() is called each time a file is read, and generally needs to
read mnt_flags.

Other fields of struct vfsmount are mostly read so I chose to move
mnt_count & mnt_expiry_mark at the end of struct vfsmount.  And adding a
comment so that nobody tries to re-arrange fields to fill the holes :)

On 64bits platforms, the new offsetof(mnt_count) is 0xC0
On 32bits platforms, it is 0x60, so I didnot add a
____cacheline_aligned_in_smp because it would have a too big impact on the
size of this object (in particular if CONFIG_X86_L1_CACHE_SHIFT=7)

[PATCH] disable init/initramfs.c

The file init/initramfs.c is always compiled and linked in the kernel
vmlinux even when BLK_DEV_RAM and BLK_DEV_INITRD are disabled and the
system isn't using any form of an initramfs or initrd.  In this situation
the code is only used to unpack a (static) default initial rootfilesystem.
The current init/initramfs.c code.  usr/initramfs_data.o compiles to a size
of ~15 kbytes.  Disabling BLK_DEV_RAM and BLK_DEV_INTRD shrinks the kernel
code size with ~60 Kbytes.

This patch avoids compiling in the code and data for initramfs support if
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_INITRD is not defined.  Instead of the initramfs code and
data it uses a small routine in init/noinitramfs.c to setup an initial
static default environment for mounting a rootfilesystem later on in the
kernel initialisation process.  The new code is: 164 bytes of size.

The patch is separated in two parts:
1) doesn't compile initramfs code when CONFIG_BLK_DEV_INITRD is not set
2) changing all plaforms vmlinux.lds.S files to not reserve an area of
PAGE_SIZE when CONFIG_BLK_DEV_INITRD is not set.

3) if 0 < *oldlenp < table->maxlen,
*cough*
string sysctls don't writeback more than *oldlenp bytes.
OK, that's because sizeof(char) == 1

int sysctls writeback anything in (0, table->maxlen] range
Though accept integers divisible by sizeof(int) for writing.

sysctl_jiffies and sysctl_ms_jiffies don't writeback anything but
sizeof(int), which violates 1) and 2).

So, make sysctl_jiffies and sysctl_ms_jiffies accept
a) *oldlenp == 0, not doing writeback
b) *oldlenp >= sizeof(int), writing one integer.

- It moves looking up of the current foreground console into process
  context where we can safely take the semaphore that protects this
  operation.
- It uses the new flavor of work queue processing.
- This generates a factor of do_SAK, __do_SAK that runs immediately.
- This calls __do_SAK with the console semaphore held ensuring nothing
  else happens to the console while we process the SAK operation.
- With the console SAK processing moved into process context this
  patch removes the xchg operations that I used to attempt to attomically
  update struct pid, because of the strange locking used in the SAK processing.
  With SAK using the normal console semaphore nothing special is needed.

Jeff Dike [Sat, 10 Feb 2007 09:44:30 +0000]
[PATCH] uml: x86_64 ptrace fixes

This patch fixes some missing ptrace bits on x86_64.  PTRACE_ARCH_PRCTL is
hooked up and implemented.  This required generalizing arch_prctl_skas
slightly to take a task_struct to modify.  Previously, it always operated on
current.

Reading and writing the debug registers is also enabled by un-ifdefing the
code that implements that.  It turns out that x86_64 is identical to i386, so
the same code can be used.

Jeff Dike [Sat, 10 Feb 2007 09:44:29 +0000]
[PATCH] uml: x86_64 thread fixes

x86_64 needs some TLS fixes.  What was missing was remembering the child
thread id during clone and stuffing it into the child during each context
switch.

The %fs value is stored separately in the thread structure since the host
controls what effect it has on the actual register file.  The host also needs
to store it in its own thread struct, so we need the value kept outside the
register file.

arch_prctl_skas was fixed to call PTRACE_ARCH_PRCTL appropriately.  There is
some saving and restoring of registers in the ARCH_SET_* cases so that the
correct set of registers are changed on the host and restored to the process
when it runs again.

Jeff Dike [Sat, 10 Feb 2007 09:44:28 +0000]
[PATCH] uml: fix error output during early boot

The startup code panics a lot if anything goes wrong early on.  This is wrong
for several reasons, like the kernel isn't running, so you can't really be
calling into it yet, but the harm comes from useful error messages being
trapped in the printk ring where no one will ever see them.

This patch changes these panics to perror and printf in wrappers which also
exit.  Normal, informational, prints are also wrapped so that fflush(stdout)
is called after each one.  This is so the output appears in the correct
sequence in the event of an error.

Complications -
There was no way to get a request struct (and queue) from the
structure sent to the io_thread, so a pointer to the request was
added.  This is needed in ubd_handler in order to kick do_ubd_request
to process another request.
