12 years agofix serial buffer memory leak
Alan Cox [Fri, 10 Aug 2007 20:01:05 +0000]
fix serial buffer memory leak

Patch c5c34d4862e18ef07c1276d233507f540fb5a532 (tty: flush flip buffer on
ldisc input queue flush) introduces a race condition which can lead to memory
leaks.

The problem can be triggered when tcflush() is called when data are being
pushed to the line discipline driver by flush_to_ldisc().

flush_to_ldisc() releases tty->buf.lock when calling the line discipline
receive_buf function. At that poing tty_buffer_flush() kicks in and sets both
tty->buf.head and tty->buf.tail to NULL. When flush_to_ldisc() finishes, it
restores tty->buf.head but doesn't touch tty->buf.tail. This corrups the
buffer queue, and the next call to tty_buffer_request_room() will allocate a
new buffer and overwrite tty->buf.head. The previous buffer is then lost
forever without being released.

(Thanks to Laurent for the above text, for finding, disgnosing and reporting
the bug)

- Use tty->flags bits for the flush status.

- Wait for the flag to clear again before returning

- Fix the doc error noted

- Fix flush of empty queue leaving stale flushpending

Anton Vorontsov [Fri, 10 Aug 2007 20:01:02 +0000]
spi_mpc83xx: fix prescale modulus calculation

Long ago I've noticed (but didn't pay much attention) that
spi_mpc83xx using PM calculations that differs from what
specs describe. I.e.

u8 pm = mpc83xx_spi->spibrg / (spi->max_speed_hz * 4);

While specs says: "The SPI baud rate generator clock source (either
system clock or system clock divided by 16, depending on DIV16 bit) is
divided by 4 * ([PM] + 1), a range from 4 to 64.".

Thus " - 1" is missing in the spi_mpc83xx's formula.

Why nobody noticed that bug? Probably because sysclk usually less then
user expects, e.g. you expect 200 MHz, but real clock is 198 MHz,
and integer rounding helps when this formula is used.

Suppose it's SPI in QE, SYSCLK at 198 MHz, thus SPIBRG at 99MHz, 25 MHz
requested.

PM = (99MHz / ( 25 MHz * 4 )), PM == 0, output SPICLK will be 24.75 MHz

At lower frequencies this bug is more noticeable, though.

And this bug shows itself in all its beauty if SYSCLK is equal or a bit
more than you expect (200 MHz SYSCLK, 100 MHz SPIBRG):
PM = (100MHz / ( 25 MHz * 4 )), PM == 1, output SPICLK will be 12.625 MHz!

stifb: detect cards in double buffer mode more reliably

Visualize-EG, Graffiti and A4450A graphics cards on PARISC can
be configured in double-buffer and standard mode, but the stifb
driver supports standard mode only.
This patch detects double-buffered cards more reliable.

It is a real bugfix for a very nasty problem for all parisc users which have
wrongly configured their graphic card.  The problem: The stifb graphics driver
will not detect that the card is wrongly configured and then nevertheless just
enables the graphics mode, which it shouldn't.  In the end, the user will see
no further updates / boot messages on the screen.

We had documented this problem already on our FAQ
(http://parisc-linux.org/faq/index.html#viseg "Why do I get corrupted graphics
with my Vis-EG/Graffiti/A4450A card?") but people still run into this problem.
 So having this fix in as early as possible can help us.

12 years agox86_64: fix HPET init race
Robin Holt [Fri, 10 Aug 2007 20:00:43 +0000]
x86_64: fix HPET init race

I have had four seperate system lockups attributable to this exact problem
in two days of testing.  Instead of trying to handle all the weird end
cases and wrap, how about changing it to look for exactly what we appear
to want.

The following patch removes a couple races in setup_APIC_timer.  One occurs
when the HPET advances the COUNTER past the T0_CMP value between the time
the T0_CMP was originally read and when COUNTER is read.  This results in
a delay waiting for the counter to wrap.  The other results from the counter
wrapping.

This change takes a snapshot of T0_CMP at the beginning of the loop and
simply loops until T0_CMP has changed (a tick has happened).

<later>

I have one small concern about the patch.  I am not sure it meets the intent
as well as it should.  I think we are trying to match APIC timer interrupts up
with the hpet counter increment.  The event which appears to be disturbing
this loop in our test environment is the NMI watchdog.  What we believe has
been happening with the existing code is the setup_APIC_timer loop has read
the CMP value, and the NMI watchdog code fires for the first time.  This
results in a series of icache miss slowdowns and by the time we get back to
things it has wrapped.

I think this code is trying to get the CMP as close to the counter value as
possible.  If that is the intent, maybe we should really be testing against a
"window" around the CMP.  Something like COUNTER = CMP+/2.  It appears COUNTER
should get advanced every 89nSec (IIRC).  The above seems like an unreasonably
small window, but may be necessary.  Without documentation, I am not sure of
the original intent with this code.

In summary, this code fixes my boot hangs, but since I am not certain of the
intent of the existing code, I am not certain this has not introduced new bugs
or unexpected behaviors.

Christoph Lameter [Tue, 7 Aug 2007 22:11:48 +0000]
SLUB: Fix dynamic dma kmalloc cache creation

The dynamic dma kmalloc creation can run into trouble if a
GFP_ATOMIC allocation is the first one performed for a certain size
of dma kmalloc slab.

- Move the adding of the slab to sysfs into a workqueue
  (sysfs does GFP_KERNEL allocations)
- Do not call kmem_cache_destroy() (uses slub_lock)
- Only acquire the slub_lock once and--if we cannot wait--do a trylock.

  This introduces a slight risk of the first kmalloc(x, GFP_DMA|GFP_ATOMIC)
  for a range of sizes failing due to another process holding the slub_lock.
  However, we only need to acquire the spinlock once in order to establish
  each power of two DMA kmalloc cache. The possible conflict is with the
  slub_lock taken during slab management actions (create / remove slab cache).

  It is rather typical that a driver will first fill its buffers using
  GFP_KERNEL allocations which will wait until the slub_lock can be acquired.
  Drivers will also create its slab caches first outside of an atomic
  context before starting to use atomic kmalloc from an interrupt context.

  If there are any failures then they will occur early after boot or when
  loading of multiple drivers concurrently. Drivers can already accomodate
  failures of GFP_ATOMIC for other reasons. Retries will then create the slab.

Christoph Lameter [Mon, 30 Jul 2007 20:06:46 +0000]
SLUB: Remove checks for MAX_PARTIAL from kmem_cache_shrink

The MAX_PARTIAL checks were supposed to be an optimization. However, slab
shrinking is a manually triggered process either through running slabinfo
or by the kernel calling kmem_cache_shrink.

If one really wants to shrink a slab then all operations should be done
regardless of the size of the partial list. This also fixes an issue that
could surface if the number of partial slabs was initially above MAX_PARTIAL
in kmem_cache_shrink and later drops below MAX_PARTIAL through the
elimination of empty slabs on the partial list (rare). In that case a few
slabs may be left off the partial list (and only be put back when they
are empty).

lguest: Fix Malicious Guest GDT Host Crash

If a Guest makes hypercall which sets a GDT entry to not present, we
currently set any segment registers using that GDT entry to 0.
Unfortunately, this is not sufficient: there are other ways of
altering GDT entries which will cause a fault.

The correct solution to do what Linux does: let them set any GDT value
they want and handle the #GP when popping causes a fault.  This has
the added benefit of making our Switcher slightly more robust in the
case of any other bugs which cause it to fault.

We kill the Guest if it causes a fault in the Switcher: it's the
Guest's responsibility to make sure it's not using segments when it
changes them.

Rusty Russell [Thu, 9 Aug 2007 10:52:35 +0000]
Fix non-TSC guest clocksource lockup

lguest uses a host-supplied wallclock-based clocksource when the TSC
is not reliable.  As this is already in nanoseconds, I naively used a
multiplier of 1 and a shift of 0.

But update_wall_time() in its infinite wisdom decides to adjust the
clock a little (where does it think it's getting a more accurate time
from?)

It will happily tweak the multiplier... to 0, then -1.

So the "fix" is to use a shift of 22 like everyone else, and a
multiplier of 1 << 22.

12 years agosched: fix bug in balance_tasks()
Peter Williams [Thu, 9 Aug 2007 09:16:46 +0000]
sched: fix bug in balance_tasks()

There are two problems with balance_tasks() and how it used:

1. The variables best_prio and best_prio_seen (inherited from the old
move_tasks()) were only required to handle problems caused by the
active/expired arrays, the order in which they were processed and the
possibility that the task with the highest priority could be on either.
  These issues are no longer present and the extra overhead associated
with their use is unnecessary (and possibly wrong).

2. In the absence of CONFIG_FAIR_GROUP_SCHED being set, the same
this_best_prio variable needs to be used by all scheduling classes or
there is a risk of moving too much load.  E.g. if the highest priority
task on this at the beginning is a fairly low priority task and the rt
class migrates a task (during its turn) then that moved task becomes the
new highest priority task on this_rq but when the sched_fair class
initializes its copy of this_best_prio it will get the priority of the
original highest priority task as, due to the run queue locks being
held, the reschedule triggered by pull_task() will not have taken place.
  This could result in inappropriate overriding of skip_for_load and
excessive load being moved.

The attached patch addresses these problems by deleting all reference to
best_prio and best_prio_seen and making this_best_prio a reference
parameter to the various functions involved.

load_balance_fair() has also been modified so that this_best_prio is
only reset (in the loop) if CONFIG_FAIR_GROUP_SCHED is set.  This should
preserve the effect of helping spread groups' higher priority tasks
around the available CPUs while improving system performance when
CONFIG_FAIR_GROUP_SCHED isn't set.

12 years agosched: remove binary sysctls from kernel.sched_domain
Alexey Dobriyan [Thu, 9 Aug 2007 09:16:46 +0000]
sched: remove binary sysctls from kernel.sched_domain

kernel.sched_domain hierarchy is under CTL_UNNUMBERED and thus
unreachable to sysctl(2). Generating .ctl_number's in such situation is
not useful.
