[PATCH] klist: fix klist to have the same klist_add semantics as list_head

at the moment, the list_head semantics are

list_add(node, head)

whereas current klist semantics are

klist_add(head, node)

This is bound to cause confusion, and since klist is the newcomer, it
should follow the list_head semantics.

I also added missing include guards to klist.h

Currently only a device 'fdX' shows up in sysfs; the other possible
device for this drive (like fd0h1440 etc) must be guessed from there.

This patch corrects the floppy driver to create a platform device for
each floppy found; each platform device also has an attribute 'cmos'
which represents the cmos type for this drive. From this attribute the
other possible device types can be computed.

[PATCH] s390: pfault interrupt race

There is a race in pfault_interrupt.  That function gets called two times for
each pfault notification.  Once with a subcode of 0 to indicate that a real
page is not available and once with a subcode of 0x80 to indicate that the
page is present again.

Since the two external interrupts can be delivered on two different cpus the
order in which the two calls are made is unpredictable.  It is possible that
the subcode 0x80 interrupt is completed before the subcode 0x00 interrupt has
done the wake_up() call.

To avoid calling wake_up() on an already removed task structure proper task
structure reference counting is needed.  Increase the reference counter in the
subcode 0x00 interrupt before setting pfault_wait to zero and return the
reference after the wake_up call.

This adds AIO support to the ubd driver.

The driver breaks a struct request into IO requests to the host, based on the
hardware segments in the request and on any COW blocks covered by the request.

The ubd IO thread is gone, since there is now an equivalent thread in the AIO
module.

There is provision for multiple outstanding requests now.  Requests aren't
retired until all pieces of it have been completed.  The AIO requests have a
shared count, which is decremented as IO operations come in until it reaches
0.  This can be possibly moved to the request struct - haven't looked at this

[PATCH] uml: merge duplicated page table code

There is a lot of code which is duplicated between the 2 and 3 level
implementation, with the only difference that the 3-level implementation is a
bit more generalized (instead of accessing directly pte_t.pte, it uses the
appropriate access macros).

So this code is joined together.

As obvious, a "core code nice cleanup" is not a "stability-friendly patch" so
usual care applies.

Jeff Dike [Sat, 3 Sep 2005 22:57:36 +0000]
[PATCH] uml: TLB operation batching

This adds VM op batching to skas0.  Rather than having a context switch to and
from the userspace stub for each address space change, we write a number of
operations to the stub data page and invoke a different stub which loops over
them and executes them all in one go.

The operations are stored as [ system call number, arg1, arg2, ... ] tuples.

The set is terminated by a system call number of 0.  Single operations, i.e.
page faults, are handled in the old way, since that is slightly more
efficient.

For a kernel build, a minority (~1/4) of the operations are part of a set.
These sets averaged ~100 in length, so for this quarter, the context switching
overhead is greatly reduced.

Paolo 'Blaisorblade' Giarrusso [Sat, 3 Sep 2005 22:57:25 +0000]
[PATCH] uml: fixes performance regression in activate_mm and thus exec()

Normally, activate_mm() is called from exec(), and thus it used to be a
no-op because we use a completely new "MM context" on the host (for
instance, a new process), and so we didn't need to flush any "TLB entries"
(which for us are the set of memory mappings for the host process from the
virtual "RAM" file).

Kernel threads, instead, are usually handled in a different way.  So, when
for AIO we call use_mm(), things used to break and so Benjamin implemented
activate_mm().  However, that is only needed for AIO, and could slow down
exec() inside UML, so be smart: detect being called for AIO (via
PF_BORROWED_MM) and do the full flush only in that situation.

Comment also the caller so that people won't go breaking UML without
noticing.  I also rely on the caller's locks for testing current->flags.

[PATCH] SYSEMU: fix sysaudit / singlestep interaction

      Paolo 'Blaisorblade' Giarrusso <blaisorblade@yahoo.it>

This is simply an adjustment for "Ptrace - i386: fix Syscall Audit interaction
with singlestep" to work on top of SYSEMU patches, too.  On this patch, I have
some doubts: I wonder why we need to alter that way ptrace_disable().

I left the patch this way because it has been extensively tested, but I don't
understand the reason.

The current PTRACE_DETACH handling simply clears child->ptrace; actually this
is not enough because entry.S just looks at the thread_flags; actually,
do_syscall_trace checks current->ptrace but I don't think depending on that is
good, at least for performance, so I think the clearing is done elsewhere.
For instance, on PTRACE_CONT it's done, but doing PTRACE_DETACH without
PTRACE_CONT is possible (and happens when gdb crashes and one kills it
manually).

13 years ago[PATCH] UML Support - Ptrace: adds the host SYSEMU support, for UML and general usage
Laurent Vivier [Sat, 3 Sep 2005 22:57:18 +0000]
[PATCH] UML Support - Ptrace: adds the host SYSEMU support, for UML and general usage

      Jeff Dike <jdike@addtoit.com>,
      Paolo 'Blaisorblade' Giarrusso <blaisorblade_spam@yahoo.it>,
      Bodo Stroesser <bstroesser@fujitsu-siemens.com>

Adds a new ptrace(2) mode, called PTRACE_SYSEMU, resembling PTRACE_SYSCALL
except that the kernel does not execute the requested syscall; this is useful
to improve performance for virtual environments, like UML, which want to run
the syscall on their own.

In fact, using PTRACE_SYSCALL means stopping child execution twice, on entry
and on exit, and each time you also have two context switches; with SYSEMU you
avoid the 2nd stop and so save two context switches per syscall.

Also, some architectures don't have support in the host for changing the
syscall number via ptrace(), which is currently needed to skip syscall
execution (UML turns any syscall into getpid() to avoid it being executed on
the host).  Fixing that is hard, while SYSEMU is easier to implement.

* This version of the patch includes some suggestions of Jeff Dike to avoid
  adding any instructions to the syscall fast path, plus some other little
  changes, by myself, to make it work even when the syscall is executed with
  SYSENTER (but I'm unsure about them). It has been widely tested for quite a
  lot of time.

* Various fixed were included to handle the various switches between
  various states, i.e. when for instance a syscall entry is traced with one of
  PT_SYSCALL / _SYSEMU / _SINGLESTEP and another one is used on exit.
  Basically, this is done by remembering which one of them was used even after
  the call to ptrace_notify().

* We're combining TIF_SYSCALL_EMU with TIF_SYSCALL_TRACE or TIF_SINGLESTEP
  to make do_syscall_trace() notice that the current syscall was started with
  SYSEMU on entry, so that no notification ought to be done in the exit path;
  this is a bit of a hack, so this problem is solved in another way in next
  patches.

* Also, the effects of the patch:
"Ptrace - i386: fix Syscall Audit interaction with singlestep"
are cancelled; they are restored back in the last patch of this series.

Detailed descriptions of the patches doing this kind of processing follow (but
I've already summed everything up).

* Fix behaviour when changing interception kind #1.

  In do_syscall_trace(), we check the status of the TIF_SYSCALL_EMU flag
  only after doing the debugger notification; but the debugger might have
  changed the status of this flag because he continued execution with
  PTRACE_SYSCALL, so this is wrong.  This patch fixes it by saving the flag
  status before calling ptrace_notify().

* Fix behaviour when changing interception kind #2:
  avoid intercepting syscall on return when using SYSCALL again.

  A guest process switching from using PTRACE_SYSEMU to PTRACE_SYSCALL
  crashes.

  The problem is in arch/i386/kernel/entry.S.  The current SYSEMU patch
  inhibits the syscall-handler to be called, but does not prevent
  do_syscall_trace() to be called after this for syscall completion
  interception.

  The appended patch fixes this.  It reuses the flag TIF_SYSCALL_EMU to
  remember "we come from PTRACE_SYSEMU and now are in PTRACE_SYSCALL", since
  the flag is unused in the depicted situation.

* Fix behaviour when changing interception kind #3:
  avoid intercepting syscall on return when using SINGLESTEP.

  When testing 2.6.9 and the skas3.v6 patch, with my latest patch and had
  problems with singlestepping on UML in SKAS with SYSEMU.  It looped
  receiving SIGTRAPs without moving forward.  EIP of the traced process was
  the same for all SIGTRAPs.

What's missing is to handle switching from PTRACE_SYSCALL_EMU to
PTRACE_SINGLESTEP in a way very similar to what is done for the change from
PTRACE_SYSCALL_EMU to PTRACE_SYSCALL_TRACE.

I.e., after calling ptrace(PTRACE_SYSEMU), on the return path, the debugger is
notified and then wake ups the process; the syscall is executed (or skipped,
when do_syscall_trace() returns 0, i.e.  when using PTRACE_SYSEMU), and
do_syscall_trace() is called again.  Since we are on the return path of a
SYSEMU'd syscall, if the wake up is performed through ptrace(PTRACE_SYSCALL),
we must still avoid notifying the parent of the syscall exit.  Now, this
behaviour is extended even to resuming with PTRACE_SINGLESTEP.

Bodo Stroesser [Sat, 3 Sep 2005 22:57:13 +0000]
[PATCH] Ptrace/i386: fix "syscall audit" interaction with singlestep

      Paolo 'Blaisorblade' Giarrusso <blaisorblade@yahoo.it>

Avoid giving two traps for singlestep instead of one, when syscall auditing is
enabled.

In fact no singlestep trap is sent on syscall entry, only on syscall exit, as
can be seen in entry.S:

# Note that in this mask _TIF_SINGLESTEP is not tested !!! <<<<<<<<<<<<<<
        testb $(_TIF_SYSCALL_TRACE|_TIF_SYSCALL_AUDIT|_TIF_SECCOMP),TI_flags(%ebp)
        jnz syscall_trace_entry
...
syscall_trace_entry:
...
call do_syscall_trace

But auditing a SINGLESTEP'ed process causes do_syscall_trace to be called, so
the tracer will get one more trap on the syscall entry path, which it
shouldn't.

[PATCH] arch/cris/Kconfig.debug: use lib/Kconfig.debug

This patch converts arch/cris/Kconfig.debug to using lib/Kconfig.debug.

This should fix a compile error in 2.6.13-rc4 caused by a missing
CONFIG_LOG_BUF_SHIFT definition.

While I was editing this file, I also converted some spaces to tabs.

13 years ago[PATCH] encrypt suspend data for easy wiping
Andreas Steinmetz [Sat, 3 Sep 2005 22:56:59 +0000]
[PATCH] encrypt suspend data for easy wiping

The patch protects from leaking sensitive data after resume from suspend.
During suspend a temporary key is created and this key is used to encrypt the
data written to disk.  When, during resume, the data was read back into memory
the temporary key is destroyed which simply means that all data written to
disk during suspend are then inaccessible so they can't be stolen lateron.

Think of the following: you suspend while an application is running that keeps
sensitive data in memory.  The application itself prevents the data from being
swapped out.  Suspend, however, must write these data to swap to be able to
resume lateron.  Without suspend encryption your sensitive data are then
stored in plaintext on disk.  This means that after resume your sensitive data
are accessible to all applications having direct access to the swap device
which was used for suspend.  If you don't need swap after resume these data
can remain on disk virtually forever.  Thus it can happen that your system
gets broken in weeks later and sensitive data which you thought were encrypted
and protected are retrieved and stolen from the swap device.

Zwane Mwaikambo [Sat, 3 Sep 2005 22:56:51 +0000]
[PATCH] i386 boottime for_each_cpu broken

for_each_cpu walks through all processors in cpu_possible_map, which is
defined as cpu_callout_map on i386 and isn't initialised until all
processors have been booted. This breaks things which do for_each_cpu
iterations early during boot. So, define cpu_possible_map as a bitmap with
NR_CPUS bits populated. This was triggered by a patch i'm working on which
does alloc_percpu before bringing up secondary processors.

From: Alexander Nyberg <alexn@telia.com>

i386-boottime-for_each_cpu-broken.patch
i386-boottime-for_each_cpu-broken-fix.patch

The SMP version of __alloc_percpu checks the cpu_possible_map before
allocating memory for a certain cpu.  With the above patches the BSP cpuid
is never set in cpu_possible_map which breaks CONFIG_SMP on uniprocessor
machines (as soon as someone tries to dereference something allocated via
__alloc_percpu, which in fact is never allocated since the cpu is not set
in cpu_possible_map).

Zachary Amsden [Sat, 3 Sep 2005 22:56:50 +0000]
[PATCH] i386: encapsulate copying of pgd entries

Add a clone operation for pgd updates.

This helps complete the encapsulation of updates to page tables (or pages
about to become page tables) into accessor functions rather than using
memcpy() to duplicate them.  This is both generally good for consistency
and also necessary for running in a hypervisor which requires explicit
updates to page table entries.

The new function is:

clone_pgd_range(pgd_t *dst, pgd_t *src, int count);

   dst - pointer to pgd range anwhere on a pgd page
   src - ""
   count - the number of pgds to copy.

   dst and src can be on the same page, but the range must not overlap
   and must not cross a page boundary.

Note that I ommitted using this call to copy pgd entries into the
software suspend page root, since this is not technically a live paging
structure, rather it is used on resume from suspend.  CC'ing Pavel in case
he has any feedback on this.

Thanks to Chris Wright for noticing that this could be more optimal in
PAE compiles by eliminating the memset.

This patch adds a notify to the die_nmi notify that the system is about to

We also change the nmi watchdog to carry on if die_nmi returns.

This give debug code a chance to a) catch watchdog timeouts and b) possibly
allow the system to continue, realizing that the time out may be due to
debugger activities such as single stepping which is usually done with
"other" cpus held.

13 years ago[PATCH] x86: make IOPL explicit
Zachary Amsden [Sat, 3 Sep 2005 22:56:44 +0000]
[PATCH] x86: make IOPL explicit

The pushf/popf in switch_to are ONLY used to switch IOPL.  Making this
explicit in C code is more clear.  This pushf/popf pair was added as a
bugfix for leaking IOPL to unprivileged processes when using
sysenter/sysexit based system calls (sysexit does not restore flags).

When requesting an IOPL change in sys_iopl(), it is just as easy to change
the current flags and the flags in the stack image (in case an IRET is
required), but there is no reason to force an IRET if we came in from the
SYSENTER path.

This change is the minimal solution for supporting a paravirtualized Linux
kernel that allows user processes to run with I/O privilege.  Other
solutions require radical rewrites of part of the low level fault / system
call handling code, or do not fully support sysenter based system calls.

Unfortunately, this added one field to the thread_struct.  But as a bonus,
on P4, the fastest time measured for switch_to() went from 312 to 260
cycles, a win of about 17% in the fast case through this performance
critical path.

Zachary Amsden [Sat, 3 Sep 2005 22:56:43 +0000]
[PATCH] x86: privilege cleanup

Privilege checking cleanup.  Originally, these diffs were much greater, but
recent cleanups in Linux have already done much of the cleanup.  I added
some explanatory comments in places where the reasoning behind certain
tests is rather subtle.

Also, in traps.c, we can skip the user_mode check in handle_BUG().  The
reason is, there are only two call chains - one via die_if_kernel() and one
via do_page_fault(), both entering from die().  Both of these paths already
ensure that a kernel mode failure has happened.  Also, the original check
here, if (user_mode(regs)) was insufficient anyways, since it would not
rule out BUG faults from V8086 mode execution.

Saving the %ss segment in show_regs() rather than assuming a fixed value
also gives better information about the current kernel state in the
register dump.

[PATCH] i386: use set_pte macros in a couple places where they were missing

Also, setting PDPEs in PAE mode does not require atomic operations, since the
PDPEs are cached by the processor, and only reloaded on an explicit or
implicit reload of CR3.

Since the four PDPEs must always be present in an active root, and the kernel
PDPE is never updated, we are safe even from SMIs and interrupts / NMIs using
task gates (which reload CR3).  Actually, much of this is moot, since the user
PDPEs are never updated either, and the only usage of task gates is by the
doublefault handler.  It appears the only place PGDs get updated in PAE mode
is in init_low_mappings() / zap_low_mapping() for initial page table creation
and recovery from ACPI sleep state, and these sites are safe by inspection.
Getting rid of the cmpxchg8b saves code space and 720 cycles in pgd_alloc on
P4.

[PATCH] i386: load_tls() fix

Subtle fix: load_TLS has been moved after saving %fs and %gs segments to avoid
creating non-reversible segments.  This could conceivably cause a bug if the
kernel ever needed to save and restore fs/gs from the NMI handler.  It
currently does not, but this is the safest approach to avoiding fs/gs
corruption.  SMIs are safe, since SMI saves the descriptor hidden state.

it is possible to improve assembler generation in two cases; savesegment

i386 Inline asm cleanup.  Use cr/dr accessor functions.

Reads from CR0 (numeric state may change in an exception handler), writes to
CR4 (flipping CR4.TSD) and reads from CR2 (page fault) prevent instruction
re-ordering.  I did not add memory clobber to CR3 / CR4 / CR0 updates, as it
was not there to begin with, and in no case should kernel memory be clobbered,
except when doing a TLB flush, which already has memory clobber.

I noticed that page invalidation does not have a memory clobber.  I can't find
a bug as a result, but there is definitely a potential for a bug here:
