7 years agovirtio: expose added descriptors immediately.
Rusty Russell [Thu, 12 Jan 2012 05:14:43 +0000]
virtio: expose added descriptors immediately.

A virtio driver does virtqueue_add_buf() multiple times before finally
calling virtqueue_kick(); previously we only exposed the added buffers
in the virtqueue_kick() call.  This means we don't need a memory
barrier in virtqueue_add_buf(), but it reduces concurrency as the
device (ie. host) can't see the buffers until the kick.

In the unusual (but now possible) case where a driver does add_buf()
and get_buf() without doing a kick, we do need to insert one before
our counter wraps.  Otherwise we could wrap num_added, and later on
not realize that we have passed the marker where we should have
kicked.

virtio: avoid modulus operation.

Since we know vq->vring.num is a power of 2, modulus is lazy (it's asserted

virtio: support unlocked queue kick

Based on patch by Christoph for virtio_blk speedup:

Split virtqueue_kick to be able to do the actual notification
outside the lock protecting the virtqueue.  This patch was
originally done by Stefan Hajnoczi, but I can't find the

7 years agovirtio: harsher barriers for rpmsg.
Rusty Russell [Thu, 12 Jan 2012 05:14:42 +0000]
virtio: harsher barriers for rpmsg.

We were cheating with our barriers; using the smp ones rather than the
real device ones.  That was fine, until rpmsg came along, which is
used to talk to a real device (a non-SMP CPU).

Unfortunately, just putting back the real barriers (reverting
d57ed95d) causes a performance regression on virtio-pci.  In
particular, Amos reports netbench's TCP_RR over virtio_net CPU
utilization increased up to 35% while throughput went down by up to
14%.

By comparison, this branch is in the noise.

lib: use generic pci_iomap on all architectures

Many architectures don't want to pull in iomap.c,

user namespace. (new, thanks Oleg)

__send_signal: convert current's uid to the recipient's user namespace

again :)

do_notify_parent and do_notify_parent_cldstop: map task's uid to parent's
user namespace

ptrace_signal maps parent's uid into current's user namespace before
including in signal to current.  IIUC Oleg has argued that this shouldn't
matter as the debugger will play with it, but it seems like not converting
the value currently being set is misleading.

Changelog:
Sep 20: Inspired by Oleg's suggestion, define map_cred_ns() helper to
simplify callers and help make clear what we are translating
        (which uid into which namespace).  Passing the target task would
make callers even easier to read, but we pass in user_ns because
current_user_ns() != task_cred_xxx(current, user_ns).
Sep 20: As recommended by Oleg, also put task_pid_vnr() under rcu_read_lock
in ptrace_signal().
Sep 23: In send_signal(), detect when (user) signal is coming from an
ancestor or unrelated user namespace.  Pass that on to __send_signal,
which sets si_uid to 0 or overflowuid if needed.
Oct 12: Base on Oleg's fixup_uid() patch.  On top of that, handle all
SI_FROMKERNEL cases at callers, because we can't assume sender is
current in those cases.
Nov 10: (mhelsley) rename fixup_uid to more meaningful usern_fixup_signal_uid
Nov 10: (akpm) make the !CONFIG_USER_NS case clearer

7 years agoworkqueue: make alloc_workqueue() take printf fmt and args for name
Tejun Heo [Tue, 10 Jan 2012 23:11:35 +0000]
workqueue: make alloc_workqueue() take printf fmt and args for name

alloc_workqueue() currently expects the passed in @name pointer to remain
accessible.  This is inconvenient and a bit silly given that the whole wq
is being dynamically allocated.  This patch updates alloc_workqueue() and
friends to take printf format string instead of opaque string and matching
varargs at the end.  The name is allocated together with the wq and
formatted.

alloc_ordered_workqueue() is converted to a macro to unify varargs
handling with alloc_workqueue(), and, while at it, add comment to
alloc_workqueue().

None of the current in-kernel users pass in string with '%' as constant
name and this change shouldn't cause any problem.

7 years agoprocfs: add hidepid= and gid= mount options
Vasiliy Kulikov [Tue, 10 Jan 2012 23:11:31 +0000]
procfs: add hidepid= and gid= mount options

Add support for mount options to restrict access to /proc/PID/
directories.  The default backward-compatible "relaxed" behaviour is left
untouched.

The first mount option is called "hidepid" and its value defines how much
info about processes we want to be available for non-owners:

hidepid=0 (default) means the old behavior - anybody may read all
world-readable /proc/PID/* files.

hidepid=1 means users may not access any /proc/<pid>/ directories, but
their own.  Sensitive files like cmdline, sched*, status are now protected
against other users.  As permission checking done in proc_pid_permission()
and files' permissions are left untouched, programs expecting specific
files' modes are not confused.

hidepid=2 means hidepid=1 plus all /proc/PID/ will be invisible to other
users.  It doesn't mean that it hides whether a process exists (it can be
learned by other means, e.g.  by kill -0 $PID), but it hides process' euid
and egid.  It compicates intruder's task of gathering info about running
processes, whether some daemon runs with elevated privileges, whether
another user runs some sensitive program, whether other users run any
program at all, etc.

gid=XXX defines a group that will be able to gather all processes' info
(as in hidepid=0 mode).  This group should be used instead of putting
nonroot user in sudoers file or something.  However, untrusted users (like
daemons, etc.) which are not supposed to monitor the tasks in the whole
system should not be added to the group.

hidepid=1 or higher is designed to restrict access to procfs files, which
might reveal some sensitive private information like precise keystrokes
timings:

http://www.openwall.com/lists/oss-security/2011/11/05/3

hidepid=1/2 doesn't break monitoring userspace tools.  ps, top, pgrep, and
conky gracefully handle EPERM/ENOENT and behave as if the current user is
the only user running processes.  pstree shows the process subtree which
contains "pstree" process.

Note: the patch doesn't deal with setuid/setgid issues of keeping
preopened descriptors of procfs files (like
https://lkml.org/lkml/2011/2/7/368).  We rely on that the leaked
information like the scheduling counters of setuid apps doesn't threaten
anybody's privacy - only the user started the setuid program may read the
counters.

7 years agoprocfs: introduce the /proc/<pid>/map_files/ directory
Pavel Emelyanov [Tue, 10 Jan 2012 23:11:23 +0000]
procfs: introduce the /proc/<pid>/map_files/ directory

This one behaves similarly to the /proc/<pid>/fd/ one - it contains
symlinks one for each mapping with file, the name of a symlink is
"vma->vm_start-vma->vm_end", the target is the file.  Opening a symlink
results in a file that point exactly to the same inode as them vma's one.

For example the ls -l of some arbitrary /proc/<pid>/map_files/

 | lr-x------ 1 root root 64 Aug 26 06:40 7f8f80403000-7f8f80404000 -> /lib64/libc-2.5.so
 | lr-x------ 1 root root 64 Aug 26 06:40 7f8f8061e000-7f8f80620000 -> /lib64/libselinux.so.1
 | lr-x------ 1 root root 64 Aug 26 06:40 7f8f80826000-7f8f80827000 -> /lib64/libacl.so.1.1.0
 | lr-x------ 1 root root 64 Aug 26 06:40 7f8f80a2f000-7f8f80a30000 -> /lib64/librt-2.5.so
 | lr-x------ 1 root root 64 Aug 26 06:40 7f8f80a30000-7f8f80a4c000 -> /lib64/ld-2.5.so

This *helps* checkpointing process in three ways:

1. When dumping a task mappings we do know exact file that is mapped
   by particular region.  We do this by opening
   /proc/$pid/map_files/$address symlink the way we do with file
   descriptors.

2. This also helps in determining which anonymous shared mappings are
   shared with each other by comparing the inodes of them.

3. When restoring a set of processes in case two of them has a mapping
   shared, we map the memory by the 1st one and then open its
   /proc/$pid/map_files/$address file and map it by the 2nd task.

Using /proc/$pid/maps for this is quite inconvenient since it brings
repeatable re-reading and reparsing for this text file which slows down
restore procedure significantly.  Also as being pointed in (3) it is a way
easier to use top level shared mapping in children as
/proc/$pid/map_files/$address when needed.

7 years agoreiserfs: don't lock root inode searching
Frederic Weisbecker [Tue, 10 Jan 2012 23:11:11 +0000]
reiserfs: don't lock root inode searching

Nothing requires that we lock the filesystem until the root inode is
provided.

Also iget5_locked() triggers a warning because we are holding the
filesystem lock while allocating the inode, which result in a lockdep
suspicion that we have a lock inversion against the reclaim path:

The deadlock shouldn't happen since we are doing that allocation in the
mount path, the filesystem is not available for any reclaim.  Still the
warning is annoying.

To solve this, acquire the lock later only where we need it, right before
calling reiserfs_read_locked_inode() that wants to lock to walk the tree.

an invalid day (> 31), or a wildcard year and an invalid month (>= 12),
the loop searching for the next matching date will never terminate.  Treat
the invalid values as wildcards.

fs: binfmt_elf: create Kconfig variable for PIE randomization

Randomization of PIE load address is hard coded in binfmt_elf.c for X86
and ARM.  Create a new Kconfig variable
(CONFIG_ARCH_BINFMT_ELF_RANDOMIZE_PIE) for this and use it instead.  Thus
architecture specific policy is pushed out of the generic binfmt_elf.c and
into the architecture Kconfig files.

X86 and ARM Kconfigs are modified to select the new variable so there is
no change in behavior.  A follow on patch will select it for MIPS too.

7 years agoleds: add driver for TCA6507 LED controller
NeilBrown [Tue, 10 Jan 2012 23:09:40 +0000]
leds: add driver for TCA6507 LED controller

TI's TCA6507 is the LED driver in the GTA04 Openmoko motherboard.  The
driver provides full support for brightness levels and hardware blinking.

This driver can drive each of 7 outputs as an LED or a GPIO output,
and provides hardware-assist blinking.

get_maintainers.pl: follow renames when looking up commit signers

I happen to have had a commit to various network drivers since the big
renaming/reorg which happened to drivers/net recently.  This means that I
now appear to be in the top few commit signers (by %age) for many of them
so am getting sent all sorts of stuff and people who are involved with the
driver are not.  e.g.  (to pick one at random):

        $ ./scripts/get_maintainer.pl -f drivers/net/ethernet/nvidia/forcedeth.c
        "David S. Miller" <davem@davemloft.net> (commit_signer:5/7=71%)
        Ian Campbell <ian.campbell@citrix.com> (commit_signer:2/7=29%)
        Eric Dumazet <eric.dumazet@gmail.com> (commit_signer:1/7=14%)
        Jeff Kirsher <jeffrey.t.kirsher@intel.com> (commit_signer:1/7=14%)

        netdev@vger.kernel.org (open list:NETWORKING DRIVERS)
        linux-kernel@vger.kernel.org (open list)

With the following patch the renames are followed and the result appears
much more sensible:

        $ ./scripts/get_maintainer.pl -f drivers/net/ethernet/nvidia/forcedeth.c

mm/hugetlb.c: avoid bogus counter of surplus huge page

If we have to hand back the newly allocated huge page to page allocator,
for any reason, the changed counter should be recovered.

This affects only s390 at present.

7 years agomempool: fix first round failure behavior
Tejun Heo [Tue, 10 Jan 2012 23:08:28 +0000]
mempool: fix first round failure behavior

mempool modifies gfp_mask so that the backing allocator doesn't try too
hard or trigger warning message when there's pool to fall back on.  In
addition, for the first try, it removes __GFP_WAIT and IO, so that it
doesn't trigger reclaim or wait when allocation can be fulfilled from
pool; however, when that allocation fails and pool is empty too, it waits
for the pool to be replenished before retrying.

Allocation which could have succeeded after a bit of reclaim has to wait
on the reserved items and it's not like mempool doesn't retry with
__GFP_WAIT and IO.  It just does that *after* someone returns an element,
pointlessly delaying things.

Fix it by retrying immediately if the first round of allocation attempts
w/o __GFP_WAIT and IO fails.

7 years agomempool: drop unnecessary and incorrect BUG_ON() from mempool_destroy()
Tejun Heo [Tue, 10 Jan 2012 23:08:26 +0000]
mempool: drop unnecessary and incorrect BUG_ON() from mempool_destroy()

mempool_destroy() is a thin wrapper around free_pool().  The only thing it
adds is BUG_ON(pool->curr_nr != pool->min_nr).  The intention seems to be
to enforce that all allocated elements are freed; however, the BUG_ON()
can't achieve that (it doesn't know anything about objects above min_nr)
and incorrect as mempool_resize() is allowed to leave the pool extended
but not filled.  Furthermore, panicking is way worse than any memory leak
and there are better debug tools to track memory leaks.

Drop the BUG_ON() from mempool_destory() and as that leaves the function
identical to free_pool(), replace it.

7 years agomempool: fix and document synchronization and memory barrier usage
Tejun Heo [Tue, 10 Jan 2012 23:08:23 +0000]
mempool: fix and document synchronization and memory barrier usage

mempool_alloc/free() use undocumented smp_mb()'s.  The code is slightly
broken and misleading.

The lockless part is in mempool_free().  It wants to determine whether the
item being freed needs to be returned to the pool or backing allocator
without grabbing pool->lock.  Two things need to be guaranteed for correct
operation.

1. pool->curr_nr + #allocated should never dip below pool->min_nr.
2. Waiters shouldn't be left dangling.

For #1, The only necessary condition is that curr_nr visible at free is
from after the allocation of the element being freed (details in the
comment).  For most cases, this is true without any barrier but there can
be fringe cases where the allocated pointer is passed to the freeing task
without going through memory barriers.  To cover this case, wmb is
necessary before returning from allocation and rmb is necessary before
reading curr_nr.  IOW,

ALLOCATING TASK FREEING TASK

update pool state after alloc;
wmb();
pass pointer to freeing task;
read pointer;
rmb();
read pool state to free;

The current code doesn't have wmb after pool update during allocation and
may theoretically, on machines where unlock doesn't behave as full wmb,
lead to pool depletion and deadlock.  smp_wmb() needs to be added after
successful allocation from reserved elements and smp_mb() in
mempool_free() can be replaced with smp_rmb().

For #2, the waiter needs to add itself to waitqueue and then check the
wait condition and the waker needs to update the wait condition and then
wake up.  Because waitqueue operations always go through full spinlock
synchronization, there is no need for extra memory barriers.

Furthermore, mempool_alloc() is already holding pool->lock when it decides
that it needs to wait.  There is no reason to do unlock - add waitqueue -
test condition again.  It can simply add itself to waitqueue while holding
pool->lock and then unlock and sleep.

This patch adds smp_wmb() after successful allocation from reserved pool,
replaces smp_mb() in mempool_free() with smp_rmb() and extend pool->lock
over waitqueue addition.  More importantly, it explains what memory
barriers do and how the lockless testing is correct.

-v2: Oleg pointed out that unlock doesn't imply wmb.  Added explicit
     smp_wmb() after successful allocation from reserved pool and
     updated comments accordingly.
