The attached patch makes the keyring functions calculate the new size of a
keyring's payload based on the size of pointer to the key struct, not the size
of the key struct itself.

Roman Zippel [Fri, 8 Jul 2005 00:56:55 +0000]
[PATCH] tty output lossage fix

The patch fixes a few corner cases around tty line editing with
very long input lines:

- n_tty_receive_char(): don't simply drop eol characters,
  otherwise canon_data isn't increased and the reader isn't woken
  up.

- n_tty_receive_room(): If there is no newline pending and the
  edit buffer is full, allow only a single character to be written
  (until eol is found and the line is flushed), so characters from
  the next line aren't dropped.

- write_chan(): if an incomplete line was written, continue
  writing until write() returns 0, otherwise it might not write
  the eol character to flush the line and the writer goes to sleep
  without ever being woken up.

BTW the core problem is that part of this should be handled in the
receive_buf path, but for this it has to return the number of
written characters, as the amount of written characters may not be
the same as the amount of characters going into the write buffer,
so the receive_room() usage in pty_write() is not really reliable.

Alan said:

The problem looks valid. The behaviour of 'traditional unix' appears to
be the following

If you exceed the line limit then beep and drop the character
Always allow EOL to complete a canonical line input
Always do signal/control processing if enabled

xtensa is now in -rc1, with the obsolete syscalls still in there, so I
guess this about the last chance to correct the ABI.  Applying the patch
obviously breaks all sorts of user space binaries and probably also

On the other hand, if a decision is made to keep the broken interface, it
should at least be a conscious one instead of an oversight.

14 years ago[PATCH] uml: Proper clone support for skas0
Bodo Stroesser [Fri, 8 Jul 2005 00:56:50 +0000]
[PATCH] uml: Proper clone support for skas0

This patch implements the clone-stub mechanism, which allows skas0 to run
with proc_mm==0, even if the clib in UML uses modify_ldt.

Note: There is a bug in skas3.v7 host patch, that avoids UML-skas from
running properly on a SMP-box.  In full skas3, I never really saw problems,
but in skas0 they showed up.

More commentary by jdike - What this patch does is makes sure that the host
parent of each new host process matches the UML parent of the corresponding
UML process.  This ensures that any changed LDTs are inherited.  This is
done by having clone actually called by the UML process from its stub,
rather than by the kernel.  We have special syscall stubs that are loaded
onto the stub code page because that code must be completely
self-contained.  These stubs are given C interfaces, and used like normal C
functions, but there are subtleties.  Principally, we have to be careful
about stack variables in stub_clone_handler after the clone.  The code is
written so that there aren't any - everything boils down to a fixed
address.  If there were any locals, references to them after the clone
would be wrong because the stack just changed.

14 years ago[PATCH] uml: skas0 - separate kernel address space on stock hosts
Jeff Dike [Fri, 8 Jul 2005 00:56:49 +0000]
[PATCH] uml: skas0 - separate kernel address space on stock hosts

UML has had two modes of operation - an insecure, slow mode (tt mode) in
which the kernel is mapped into every process address space which requires
no host kernel modifications, and a secure, faster mode (skas mode) in
which the UML kernel is in a separate host address space, which requires a
patch to the host kernel.

This patch implements something very close to skas mode for hosts which
don't support skas - I'm calling this skas0.  It provides the security of
the skas host patch, and some of the performance gains.

The two main things that are provided by the skas patch, /proc/mm and
PTRACE_FAULTINFO, are implemented in a way that require no host patch.

For the remote address space changing stuff (mmap, munmap, and mprotect),
we set aside two pages in the process above its stack, one of which
contains a little bit of code which can call mmap et al.

To update the address space, the system call information (system call
number and arguments) are written to the stub page above the code.  The
%esp is set to the beginning of the data, the %eip is set the the start of
the stub, and it repeatedly pops the information into its registers and
makes the system call until it sees a system call number of zero.  This is
to amortize the cost of the context switch across multiple address space
updates.

When the updates are done, it SIGSTOPs itself, and the kernel process
continues what it was doing.

For a PTRACE_FAULTINFO replacement, we set up a SIGSEGV handler in the
child, and let it handle segfaults rather than nullifying them.  The
handler is in the same page as the mmap stub.  The second page is used as
the stack.  The handler reads cr2 and err from the sigcontext, sticks them
at the base of the stack in a faultinfo struct, and SIGSTOPs itself.  The
kernel then reads the faultinfo and handles the fault.

A complication on x86_64 is that this involves resetting the registers to
the segfault values when the process is inside the kill system call.  This
breaks on x86_64 because %rcx will contain %rip because you tell SYSRET
where to return to by putting the value in %rcx.  So, this corrupts $rcx on
return from the segfault.  To work around this, I added an
arch_finish_segv, which on x86 does nothing, but which on x86_64 ptraces
the child back through the sigreturn.  This causes %rcx to be restored by
sigreturn and avoids the corruption.  Ultimately, I think I will replace
this with the trick of having it send itself a blocked signal which will be
unblocked by the sigreturn.  This will allow it to be stopped just after
the sigreturn, and PTRACE_SYSCALLed without all the back-and-forth of
PTRACE_SYSCALLing it through sigreturn.

This runs on a stock host, so theoretically (and hopefully), tt mode isn't
needed any more.  We need to make sure that this is better in every way
than tt mode, though.  I'm concerned about the speed of address space
updates and page fault handling, since they involve extra round-trips to
the child.  We can amortize the round-trip cost for large address space
updates by writing all of the operations to the data page and having the
child execute them all at the same time.  This will help fork and exec, but
not page faults, since they involve only one page.

I can't think of any way to help page faults, except to add something like
PTRACE_FAULTINFO to the host.  There is PTRACE_SIGINFO, but UML doesn't use
siginfo for SIGSEGV (or anything else) because there isn't enough
information in the siginfo struct to handle page faults (the faulting
operation type is missing).  Adding that would make PTRACE_SIGINFO a usable
equivalent to PTRACE_FAULTINFO.

As for the code itself:

- The system call stub is in arch/um/kernel/sys-$(SUBARCH)/stub.S.  It is
  put in its own section of the binary along with stub_segv_handler in
  arch/um/kernel/skas/process.c.  This is manipulated with run_syscall_stub
  in arch/um/kernel/skas/mem_user.c.  syscall_stub will execute any system
  call at all, but it's only used for mmap, munmap, and mprotect.

- The x86_64 stub calls sigreturn by hand rather than allowing the normal
  sigreturn to happen, because the normal sigreturn is a SA_RESTORER in
  UML's address space provided by libc.  Needless to say, this is not
  available in the child's address space.  Also, it does a couple of odd
  pops before that which restore the stack to the state it was in at the
  time the signal handler was called.

- There is a new field in the arch mmu_context, which is now a union.
  This is the pid to be manipulated rather than the /proc/mm file
  descriptor.  Code which deals with this now checks proc_mm to see whether
  it should use the usual skas code or the new code.

- userspace_tramp is now used to create a new host process for every UML
  process, rather than one per UML processor.  It checks proc_mm and
  ptrace_faultinfo to decide whether to map in the pages above its stack.

- start_userspace now makes CLONE_VM conditional on proc_mm since we need
  separate address spaces now.

- switch_mm_skas now just sets userspace_pid[0] to the new pid rather
  than PTRACE_SWITCH_MM.  There is an addition to userspace which updates
  its idea of the pid being manipulated each time around the loop.  This is
  important on exec, when the pid will change underneath userspace().

- The stub page has a pte, but it can't be mapped in using tlb_flush
  because it is part of tlb_flush.  This is why it's required for it to be
  mapped in by userspace_tramp.

Other random things:

- The stub section in uml.lds.S is page aligned.  This page is written
  out to the backing vm file in setup_physmem because it is mapped from
  there into user processes.

- There's some confusion with TASK_SIZE now that there are a couple of
  extra pages that the process can't use.  TASK_SIZE is considered by the
  elf code to be the usable process memory, which is reasonable, so it is
  decreased by two pages.  This confuses the definition of
  USER_PGDS_IN_LAST_PML4, making it too small because of the rounding down
  of the uneven division.  So we round it to the nearest PGDIR_SIZE rather
  than the lower one.

- I added a missing PT_SYSCALL_ARG6_OFFSET macro.

- um_mmu.h was made into a userspace-usable file.

- proc_mm and ptrace_faultinfo are globals which say whether the host
  supports these features.

- There is a bad interaction between the mm.nr_ptes check at the end of
  exit_mmap, stack randomization, and skas0.  exit_mmap will stop freeing
  pages at the PGDIR_SIZE boundary after the last vma.  If the stack isn't
  on the last page table page, the last pte page won't be freed, as it
  should be since the stub ptes are there, and exit_mmap will BUG because
  there is an unfreed page.  To get around this, TASK_SIZE is set to the
  next lowest PGDIR_SIZE boundary and mm->nr_ptes is decremented after the
  calls to init_stub_pte.  This ensures that we know the process stack (and
  all other process mappings) will be below the top page table page, and
  thus we know that mm->nr_ptes will be one too many, and can be
  decremented.

Things that need fixing:

- We may need better assurrences that the stub code is PIC.

- The stub pte is set up in init_new_context_skas.

- alloc_pgdir is probably the right place.

If CONFIG_NUMA isn't set, we use the define in <linux/mmzone.h> for
early_pfn_to_nid (which defines it to 0).

Because of this, the prototype needs to move inside the CONFIG_NUMA too, or
anal gcc's get really confused.

There has been some discuss about solving the SMP MTRR suspend/resume
breakage, but I didn't find a patch for it.  This is an intent for it.  The
basic idea is moving mtrr initializing into cpu_identify for all APs (so it
works for cpu hotplug).  For BP, restore_processor_state is responsible for
restoring MTRR.

[PATCH] hvc_console: Rearrange code

Milton Miller has done a lot of work to clean up our hvc_console code.

One of the important things the following patch series does is separate the
VIO layer from the hvc_console code.  With the VIO specific code removed any
ppc64 platform, or even any architecture, can use hvc_console as a generic
polling console.  You simply have to supply a get_chars and put_chars method
and hvc_console does the rest of the work.  You can even use it for an
interrupt driven console.

This patch:

Rearrange the code in drivers/char/hvc_console.c to make future patches
smaller.  No actual code changes, just ordering of the functions in the file.

Enable the runlatch at the start of each exception.  Unfortunately we are out
of space in the 0x300 handler, so I added it a bit later.

The SPR write is fairly expensive, perhaps we should cache the runlatch state
in the paca and avoid the write when possible.

We don't need to turn the runlatch off, we do that in the idle loop.  Better
to take the hit in the idle loop than for each exception exit.

For example, when a task is exiting the OOM killer will simply return
(waiting for that task to exit and clear up memory).  If the VM continually
calls back into the OOM killer we get thousands of copies of show_mem() on

Mark Fasheh [Fri, 8 Jul 2005 00:56:03 +0000]
[PATCH] export generic_drop_inode() to modules

OCFS2 wants to mark an inode which has been orphaned by another node so
that during final iput it takes the correct path through the VFS and can
pass through the OCFS2 delete_inode callback.  Since i_nlink can get out of
date with other nodes, the best way I see to accomplish this is by clearing
i_nlink on those inodes at drop_inode time.  Other than this small amount
of work, nothing different needs to happen, so I think it would be cleanest
to be able to just call generic_drop_inode at the end of the OCFS2
drop_inode callback.

Ivan Kokshaysky [Wed, 6 Jul 2005 23:07:56 +0000]
[PATCH] yet another fix for setup-bus.c/x86 merge

There is a slight disagreement between setup-bus.c code and traditional
x86 PCI setup wrt which recourses are invalid vs resources that are free
for further allocations.

In particular, in the setup-bus.c, if we failed to allocate some resource,
we nullify "start" and "flags" fields, but *not* the "end" one.

But x86 pcibios_enable_resources() does the following check:

if (!r->start && r->end) {
printk(KERN_ERR "PCI: Device %s not available because of resource collisions\n", pci_name(dev));
return -EINVAL;

which means that the device owning the offending resource cannot be
enabled.

In particular, this breaks cardbus behind the normal decode p2p bridge -
the cardbus code from setup-bus.c requests rather large IO and MEM
windows, and if it fails, the socket is completely unavailable.  Which
is wrong, as the yenta code is capable to allocate smaller windows.

[IA64] memory-less-nodes repost

I reworked how nodes with only CPUs are treated.  The patch below seems
simpler to me and has eliminated the complicated routine
reassign_cpu_only_nodes.  There isn't any longer the requirement
to modify ACPI NUMA information which was in large part the
complexity introduced in reassign_cpu_only_nodes.

This patch will produce a different number of nodes. For example,
reassign_cpu_only_nodes would reduce two CPUonly nodes and one memory node
configuration to one memory+CPUs node configuration.  This patch
doesn't change the number of nodes which means the user will see three.  Two
nodes without memory and one node with all the memory.

While doing this patch, I noticed that early_nr_phys_cpus_node isn't serving
any useful purpose.  It is called once in find_pernode_space but the value
isn't used to computer pernode space.

14 years ago[CRYPTO] Add x86_64 asm AES
Andreas Steinmetz [Wed, 6 Jul 2005 20:55:00 +0000]
[CRYPTO] Add x86_64 asm AES

Implementation:
===============
The encrypt/decrypt code is based on an x86 implementation I did a while
ago which I never published. This unpublished implementation does
include an assembler based key schedule and precomputed tables. For
simplicity and best acceptance, however, I took Gladman's in-kernel code
for table generation and key schedule for the kernel port of my
assembler code and modified this code to produce the key schedule as
required by my assembler implementation. File locations and Kconfig are
kept similar to the i586 AES assembler implementation.
It may seem a little bit strange to use 32 bit I/O and registers in the
assembler implementation but this gives the best code size. My
implementation takes one instruction more per round compared to
Gladman's x86 assembler but it doesn't require any stack for local
variables or saved registers and it is less serialized than Gladman's
code.
Note that all comparisons to Gladman's code were done after my code was
implemented. I did only use FIPS PUB 197 for the implementation so my
implementation is independent work.
If anybody has a better assembler solution for x86_64 I'll be pleased to
have my code replaced with the better solution.

Testing:
========
The implementation passes the in-kernel crypto testing module and I'm
running it without any problems on my laptop where it is mainly used for
dm-crypt.

Microbenchmark:
===============
The microbenchmark was done in userspace with similar compile flags as
used during kernel compile.
Encrypt/decrypt is about 35% faster than the generic C implementation.
As the generic C as well as my assembler implementation are both table
I don't really expect that there is much room for further
improvements though I'll be glad to be corrected here.
The key schedule is about 5% slower than the generic C implementation.
This is due to the fact that some more work has to be done in the key
schedule routine to fit the schedule to the assembler implementation.

Code Size:
==========
Encrypt and decrypt are together about 2.1 Kbytes smaller than the
generic C implementation which is important with regard to L1 cache
usage. The key schedule routine is about 100 bytes larger than the
generic C implementation.

Data Size:
==========
There's no difference in data size requirements between the assembler
implementation and the generic C implementation.

License:
========
Gladmans's code is dual BSD/GPL whereas my assembler code is GPLv2 only
(I'm  not going to change the license for my code). So I had to change
the module license for the x86_64 aes module from 'Dual BSD/GPL' to
'GPL' to reflect the most restrictive license within the module.

14 years ago[CRYPTO] Add null short circuit to crypto_free_tfm
Jesper Juhl [Wed, 6 Jul 2005 20:54:31 +0000]
[CRYPTO] Add null short circuit to crypto_free_tfm

As far as I'm aware there's a general concensus that functions that are
responsible for freeing resources should be able to cope with being passed
a NULL pointer. This makes sense as it removes the need for all callers to
check for NULL, thus elliminating the bugs that happen when some forget
(safer to just check centrally in the freeing function) and it also makes
for smaller code all over due to the lack of all those NULL checks.
This patch makes it safe to pass the crypto_free_tfm() function a NULL
pointer. Once this patch is applied we can start removing the NULL checks
from the callers.

[CRYPTO] Update IV correctly for Padlock CBC encryption

When the Padlock does CBC encryption, the memory pointed to by EAX is
not updated at all.  Instead, it updates the value of EAX by pointing
it to the last block in the output.  Therefore to maintain the correct
semantics we need to copy the IV.

Even though cit_iv is now always aligned, the user can still supply an
unaligned iv through crypto_cipher_encrypt_iv/crypto_cipher_decrypt_iv.
This patch will check the alignment of the user-supplied iv and copy
it if necessary.

[CRYPTO] Ensure cit_iv is aligned correctly

This patch ensures that cit_iv is aligned according to cra_alignmask
by allocating it as part of the tfm structure.  As a side effect the
crypto layer will also guarantee that the tfm ctx area has enough space
to be aligned by cra_alignmask.  This allows us to remove the extra
space reservation from the Padlock driver.
