14 years ago[PATCH] Generic VFS fallback for security xattrs
Stephen Smalley [Sat, 3 Sep 2005 22:55:18 +0000]
[PATCH] Generic VFS fallback for security xattrs

This patch modifies the VFS setxattr, getxattr, and listxattr code to fall
back to the security module for security xattrs if the filesystem does not
support xattrs natively.  This allows security modules to export the incore
inode security label information to userspace even if the filesystem does
not provide xattr storage, and eliminates the need to individually patch
various pseudo filesystem types to provide such access.  The patch removes
the existing xattr code from devpts and tmpfs as it is then no longer
needed.

The patch restructures the code flow slightly to reduce duplication between
the normal path and the fallback path, but this should only have one
user-visible side effect - a program may get -EACCES rather than
-EOPNOTSUPP if policy denied access but the filesystem didn't support the
operation anyway.  Note that the post_setxattr hook call is not needed in
the fallback case, as the inode_setsecurity hook call handles the incore
inode security state update directly.  In contrast, we do call fsnotify in
both cases.

14 years ago[PATCH] selinux: Reduce memory use by avtab
Stephen Smalley [Sat, 3 Sep 2005 22:55:16 +0000]
[PATCH] selinux: Reduce memory use by avtab

This patch improves memory use by SELinux by both reducing the avtab node
size and reducing the number of avtab nodes.  The memory savings are
substantial, e.g.  on a 64-bit system after boot, James Morris reported the
following data for the targeted and strict policies:

            #objs  objsize   kernmem
Targeted:
  Before:  237888       40     9.1MB
  After:    19968       24     468KB

Strict:
  Before:  571680       40   21.81MB
  After:   221052       24    5.06MB

The improvement in memory use comes at a cost in the speed of security
server computations of access vectors, but these computations are only
required on AVC cache misses, and performance measurements by James Morris
using a number of benchmarks have shown that the change does not cause any
significant degradation.

Note that a rebuilt policy via an updated policy toolchain
(libsepol/checkpolicy) is required in order to gain the full benefits of
this patch, although some memory savings benefits are immediately applied
even to older policies (in particular, the reduction in avtab node size).
Sources for the updated toolchain are presently available from the
sourceforge CVS tree (http://sourceforge.net/cvs/?group_id=21266), and
tarballs are available from http://www.flux.utah.edu/~sds.

show_smap calls first show_map and then prints its additional information to
the seq_file.  show_map checks if all it has to print fits into the buffer and

it is not for show_smap.  Here the vma should be marked as written only after

m->version = (vma != get_gate_vma(task))? vma->vm_start: 0;

[PATCH] x86_64: avoid some atomic operations during address space destruction

Any architecture that has hardware updated A/D bits that require
synchronization against other processors during PTE operations can benefit
from doing non-atomic PTE updates during address space destruction.
Originally done on i386, now ported to x86_64.

Doing a read/write pair instead of an xchg() operation saves the implicit
lock, which turns out to be a big win on 32-bit (esp w PAE).

Zachary Amsden [Sat, 3 Sep 2005 22:55:04 +0000]
[PATCH] x86: ptep_clear optimization

Add a new accessor for PTEs, which passes the full hint from the mmu_gather
struct; this allows architectures with hardware pagetables to optimize away
atomic PTE operations when destroying an address space.  Removing the
locked operation should allow better pipelining of memory access in this
loop.  I measured an average savings of 30-35 cycles per zap_pte_range on
the first 500 destructions on Pentium-M, but I believe the optimization
would win more on older processors which still assert the bus lock on xchg
for an exclusive cacheline.

Update: I made some new measurements, and this saves exactly 26 cycles over
ptep_get_and_clear on Pentium M.  On P4, with a PAE kernel, this saves 180
cycles per ptep_get_and_clear, for a whopping 92160 cycles savings for a
full address space destruction.

pte_clear_full is not yet used, but is provided for future optimizations
(in particular, when running inside of a hypervisor that queues page table
updates, the full hint allows us to avoid queueing unnecessary page table
update for an address space in the process of being destroyed.

This is not a huge win, but it does help a bit, and sets the stage for
further hypervisor optimization of the mm layer on all architectures.

Chen, Kenneth W [Sat, 3 Sep 2005 22:55:02 +0000]
[PATCH] remove hugetlb_clean_stale_pgtable() and fix huge_pte_alloc()

I don't think we need to call hugetlb_clean_stale_pgtable() anymore
in 2.6.13 because of the rework with free_pgtables().  It now collect
all the pte page at the time of munmap.  It used to only collect page
table pages when entire one pgd can be freed and left with staled pte
pages.  Not anymore with 2.6.13.  This function will never be called
and We should turn it into a BUG_ON.

I also spotted two problems here, not Adam's fault :-)
(1) in huge_pte_alloc(), it looks like a bug to me that pud is not
    checked before calling pmd_alloc()
(2) in hugetlb_clean_stale_pgtable(), it also missed a call to
    pmd_free_tlb.  I think a tlb flush is required to flush the mapping
    for the page table itself when we clear out the pmd pointing to a
    pte page.  However, since hugetlb_clean_stale_pgtable() is never
    called, so it won't trigger the bug.

described by Kenneth Chen at http://lkml.org/lkml/2004/6/16/246

> It turns out there is a bug in hugetlb_prefault(): with 3 level page table,

Unless I am missing something, it seems more correct to place the check inside
huge_pte_alloc() to prevent a the same bug wherever a huge pte is allocated.
It also allows checking for this condition when lazily faulting huge pages
later in the series.

[PATCH] arm: allow for arch-specific IOREMAP_MAX_ORDER

Version 6 of the ARM architecture introduces the concept of 16MB pages
(supersections) and 36-bit (40-bit actually, but nobody uses this) physical
addresses.  36-bit addressed memory and I/O and ARMv6 can only be mapped
using supersections and the requirement on these is that both virtual and
physical addresses be 16MB aligned.  In trying to add support for ioremap()
of 36-bit I/O, we run into the issue that get_vm_area() allows for a
maximum of 512K alignment via the IOREMAP_MAX_ORDER constant.  To work
around this, we can:

- Allocate a larger VM area than needed (size + (1ul << IOREMAP_MAX_ORDER))
  and then align the pointer ourselves, but this ends up with 512K of
  wasted VM per ioremap().

- Provide a new __get_vm_area_aligned() API and make __get_vm_area() sit
  on top of this. I did this and it works but I don't like the idea
  adding another VM API just for this one case.

- My preferred solution which is to allow the architecture to override
  the IOREMAP_MAX_ORDER constant with it's own version.

Hugh Dickins [Sat, 3 Sep 2005 22:54:53 +0000]
[PATCH] mm: fix madvise vma merging

Better late than never, I've at last reviewed the madvise vma merging
going into 2.6.13.  Remove a pointless check and fix two little bugs -
a simple test (with /proc/<pid>/maps hacked to show ReadHints) showed
both mismerges in practice: though being madvise, neither was disastrous.

1. Correct placement of the success label in madvise_behavior: as in
   mprotect_fixup and mlock_fixup, it is necessary to update vm_flags
   when vma_merge succeeds (to handle the exceptional Case 8 noted in
   the comments above vma_merge itself).

2. Correct initial value of prev when starting part way into a vma: as
   in sys_mprotect and do_mlock, it needs to be set to vma in this case
   (vma_merge handles only that minimum of cases shown in its comments).

3. If find_vma_prev sets prev, then the vma it returns is prev->vm_next,
   so it's pointless to make that same assignment again in sys_madvise.

Nick Piggin [Sat, 3 Sep 2005 22:54:49 +0000]
[PATCH] mm: remap ZERO_PAGE mappings

filemap_xip's nopage routine maps the ZERO_PAGE into readonly mappings, if it
has no data page to map there: then if the hole in the file is later filled,
__xip_unmap uses an rmap technique to replace the ZERO_PAGEs mapped for that
offset by the newly allocated file page, so that established mappings will see
the newly written data.

However, on MIPS (alone) there's not one but as many as eight ZERO_PAGEs,
chosen for coloring by user virtual address; and if mremap has meanwhile been
used to move a mapping containing a ZERO_PAGE, it will generally not match the
ZERO_PAGE(address) __xip_unmap is looking for.

To maintain XIP's established mappings correctly on MIPS, we need Nick's fix
to mremap's move_one_page (originally presented as an optimization), to
replace the ZERO_PAGE appropriate to the old address by the ZERO_PAGE
appropriate to the new address.

(But when I first saw this, I was thinking the ZERO_PAGEs themselves would get
corrupted, very bad.  Now I think it's the other way round, that the
established mappings will fail to see the newly written data: incorrect, but
not corrupting everything else.  Whether filemap_xip's technique is generally
safe, I'd hesitate to say in a hurry: it's interesting, but we've never tried
to do that in tmpfs.)

Christoph Lameter [Sat, 3 Sep 2005 22:54:45 +0000]
[PATCH] /proc/<pid>/numa_maps to show on which nodes pages reside

This patch was recently discussed on linux-mm:
http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?t=112085728500002&r=1&w=2

I inherited a large code base from Ray for page migration.  There was a
small patch in there that I find to be very useful since it allows the
display of the locality of the pages in use by a process.  I reworked that
patch and came up with a /proc/<pid>/numa_maps that gives more information
about the vma's of a process.  numa_maps is indexes by the start address
found in /proc/<pid>/maps.  F.e.  with this patch you can see the page use
of the "getty" process:

Hugh Dickins [Sat, 3 Sep 2005 22:54:41 +0000]
[PATCH] swap: swap_lock replace list+device

The idea of a swap_device_lock per device, and a swap_list_lock over them all,
is appealing; but in practice almost every holder of swap_device_lock must
already hold swap_list_lock, which defeats the purpose of the split.

The only exceptions have been swap_duplicate, valid_swaphandles and an
untrodden path in try_to_unuse (plus a few places added in this series).
valid_swaphandles doesn't show up high in profiles, but swap_duplicate does
demand attention.  However, with the hold time in get_swap_pages so much
reduced, I've not yet found a load and set of swap device priorities to show
even swap_duplicate benefitting from the split.  Certainly the split is mere
overhead in the common case of a single swap device.

So, replace swap_list_lock and swap_device_lock by spinlock_t swap_lock
(generally we seem to prefer an _ in the name, and not hide in a macro).

If someone can show a regression in swap_duplicate, then probably we should
add a hashlock for the swap_map entries alone (shorts being anatomic), so as
to help the case of the single swap device too.

[PATCH] swap: scan_swap_map drop swap_device_lock

get_swap_page has often shown up on latency traces, doing lengthy scans while
holding two spinlocks.  swap_list_lock is already dropped, now scan_swap_map
drop swap_device_lock before scanning the swap_map.

While scanning for an empty cluster, don't worry that racing tasks may
allocate what was free and free what was allocated; but when allocating an
entry, check it's still free after retaking the lock.  Avoid dropping the lock
in the expected common path.  No barriers beyond the locks, just let the
cookie crumble; highest_bit limit is volatile, but benign.

Guard against swapoff: must check SWP_WRITEOK before allocating, must raise
SWP_SCANNING reference count while in scan_swap_map, swapoff wait for that to
fall - just use schedule_timeout, we don't want to burden scan_swap_map
itself, and it's very unlikely that anyone can really still be in
scan_swap_map once swapoff gets this far.

The "Adding %dk swap" message shows the number of swap extents, as a guide to
how fragmented the swapfile may be.  But a useful further guide is what total
extent they span across (sometimes scarily large).

And there's no need to keep nr_extents in swap_info: it's unused after the
initial message, so save a little space by keeping it on stack.

Hugh Dickins [Sat, 3 Sep 2005 22:54:34 +0000]
[PATCH] swap: swap extent list is ordered

There are several comments that swap's extent_list.prev points to the lowest
extent: that's not so, it's extent_list.next which points to it, as you'd
expect.  And a couple of loops in add_swap_extent which go all the way through
the list, when they should just add to the other end.

Fix those up, and let map_swap_page search the list forwards: profiles shows
it to be twice as quick that way - because prefetch works better on how the
structs are typically kmalloc'ed?  or because usually more is written to than
read from swap, and swap is allocated ascendingly?

[PATCH] swap: move destroy_swap_extents calls

sys_swapon's call to destroy_swap_extents on failure is made after the final
swap_list_unlock, which is faintly unsafe: another sys_swapon might already be
setting up that swap_info_struct.  Calling it earlier, before taking
swap_list_lock, is safe.  sys_swapoff's call to destroy_swap_extents was safe,
but likewise move it earlier, before taking the locks (once try_to_unuse has
completed, nothing can be needing the swap extents).

[PATCH] swap: correct swapfile nr_good_pages

If a regular swapfile lies on a filesystem whose blocksize is less than
PAGE_SIZE, then setup_swap_extents may have to cut the number of usable swap
pages; but sys_swapon's nr_good_pages was not expecting that.  Also,
setup_swap_extents takes no account of badpages listed in the swap header: not
worth doing so, but ensure nr_badpages is 0 for a regular swapfile.

[PATCH] sparsemem extreme implementation

With cleanups from Dave Hansen <haveblue@us.ibm.com>

SPARSEMEM_EXTREME makes mem_section a one dimensional array of pointers to
mem_sections.  This two level layout scheme is able to achieve smaller
memory requirements for SPARSEMEM with the tradeoff of an additional shift
and load when fetching the memory section.  The current SPARSEMEM
implementation is a one dimensional array of mem_sections which is the
default SPARSEMEM configuration.  The patch attempts isolates the
implementation details of the physical layout of the sparsemem section
array.

SPARSEMEM_EXTREME requires bootmem to be functioning at the time of
memory_present() calls.  This is not always feasible, so architectures
which do not need it may allocate everything statically by using
SPARSEMEM_STATIC.

[PATCH] SPARSEMEM EXTREME

A new option for SPARSEMEM is ARCH_SPARSEMEM_EXTREME.  Architecture
platforms with a very sparse physical address space would likely want to
select this option.  For those architecture platforms that don't select the
option, the code generated is equivalent to SPARSEMEM currently in -mm.
I'll be posting a patch on ia64 ml which uses this new SPARSEMEM feature.

ARCH_SPARSEMEM_EXTREME makes mem_section a one dimensional array of
pointers to mem_sections.  This two level layout scheme is able to achieve
smaller memory requirements for SPARSEMEM with the tradeoff of an
additional shift and load when fetching the memory section.  The current
SPARSEMEM -mm implementation is a one dimensional array of mem_sections
which is the default SPARSEMEM configuration.  The patch attempts isolates
the implementation details of the physical layout of the sparsemem section
array.

ARCH_SPARSEMEM_EXTREME depends on 64BIT and is by default boolean false.

I've boot tested under aim load ia64 configured for ARCH_SPARSEMEM_EXTREME.
 I've also boot tested a 4 way Opteron machine with !ARCH_SPARSEMEM_EXTREME
and tested with aim.

[PATCH] Fix bug in ppc64 dynamic hugepage support

In adjusting the logic for SLB miss for the dynamic hugepage stuff, I
messed up the !CONFIG_HUGETLB_PAGE case, failing to set the SLB flags
properly.

This fixes it.  It also streamlines the logic for the HUGETLB_PAGE case
(removing a couple of branches) while we're at it.

Booted, and roughly tested on POWER5 (with and without HUGETLB_PAGE),
iSeries/RS64 (no hugepage available), and G5 (with and without
HUGETLB_PAGE).

Nicolas Pitre [Thu, 1 Sep 2005 11:37:13 +0000]
[ARM] 2865/2: fix fadvise64_64 syscall argument passing

Patch from Nicolas Pitre

The prototype for sys_fadvise64_64() is:
    long sys_fadvise64_64(int fd, loff_t offset, loff_t len, int advice)
The argument list is therefore as follows on legacy ABI:
fd: type int (r0)
offset: type long long (r1-r2)
len: type long long (r3-sp[0])
advice: type int (sp[4])
With EABI this becomes:
fd: type int (r0)
offset: type long long (r2-r3)
len: type long long (sp[0]-sp[4])
advice: type int (sp[8])
Not only do we have ABI differences here, but the EABI version requires
one additional word on the syscall stack.
To avoid the ABI mismatch and the extra stack space required with EABI
this syscall is now defined with a different argument ordering
on ARM as follows:
    long sys_arm_fadvise64_64(int fd, int advice, loff_t offset, loff_t len)
This gives us the following ABI independent argument distribution:
fd: type int (r0)
advice: type int (r1)
offset: type long long (r2-r3)
len: type long long (sp[0]-sp[4])
Now, since the syscall entry code takes care of 5 registers only by
default including the store of r4 to the stack, we need a wrapper to
store r5 to the stack as well.  Because that wrapper was missing and was
always required this means that sys_fadvise64_64 never worked on ARM and
therefore we can safely reuse its syscall number for our new
sys_arm_fadvise64_64 interface.

[PATCH] hostap: Fix null pointer dereference in prism2_pccard_card_present()

local->hw_priv was initialized only after the interrupt handler was
registered. This could trigger a NULL pointer dereference in
prism2_pccard_card_present() that assumed that local->hw_priv is always
set (and it should have been). Fix this by setting local->hw_priv before
registering the interrupt handler.

[PATCH] iseries_veth: Be consistent about driver name, increment version

The iseries_veth driver tells sysfs that it's called 'iseries_veth', but if
you ask it via ethtool it thinks it's called 'veth'. I think this comes from
2.4 when the driver was called 'veth', but it's definitely called
'iseries_veth' now, so fix it.

To make sure we don't do it again define DRV_NAME and use it everywhere.

While we're at it, change the version number to 2.0, to reflect the changes
made in this patch series.
