11 years agox86: fix cmos read and write to not use inb_p and outb_p
David P. Reed [Sun, 17 Feb 2008 21:56:39 +0000]
x86: fix cmos read and write to not use inb_p and outb_p

fix code to access CMOS rtc registers so that it does not use inb_p and
outb_p routines, which are deprecated.  Extensive research on all known
CMOS RTC chipset timing shows that there is no need for a delay in
accessing the registers of these chips even on old machines. These chipa
are never on an expansion bus, but have always been "motherboard"
resources, either in the processor chipset or explicitly on the
motherboard, and they are not part of the ISA/LPC or PCI buses, so
delays should not be based on bus timing. The reason to fix it:

 1) port 80 writes often hang some laptops that use ENE EC chipsets,
    esp. those designed and manufactured by Quanta for HP;

 2) RTC accesses are timing sensitive, and extra microseconds may matter;

 3) the new "io_delay" function is calibrated by expansion bus timing needs,
    thus is not appropriate for access to CMOS rtc registers.

11 years agox86: use ELF section to list CPU vendor specific code
Thomas Petazzoni [Fri, 15 Feb 2008 11:00:23 +0000]
x86: use ELF section to list CPU vendor specific code

Replace the hardcoded list of initialization functions for each CPU
vendor by a list in an ELF section, which is read at initialization in
arch/x86/kernel/cpu/cpu.c to fill the cpu_devs[] array. The ELF
section, named .x86cpuvendor.init, is reclaimed after boot, and
contains entries of type "struct cpu_vendor_dev" which associates a
vendor number with a pointer to a "struct cpu_dev" structure.

This first modification allows to remove all the VENDOR_init_cpu()
functions.

This patch also removes the hardcoded calls to early_init_amd() and
early_init_intel(). Instead, we add a "c_early_init" member to the
cpu_dev structure, which is then called if not NULL by the generic CPU
initialization code. Unfortunately, in early_cpu_detect(), this_cpu is
not yet set, so we have to use the cpu_devs[] array directly.

This patch is part of the Linux Tiny project, and is needed for
further patch that will allow to disable compilation of unused CPU
support code.

11 years agox86: reducing debuginfo size by removing unneeded includes
Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo [Thu, 7 Feb 2008 23:03:04 +0000]
x86: reducing debuginfo size by removing unneeded includes

I found it strange that the struct sk_buff definition was found
inside the DWARF debugging sections in the generated object, so I verified
and found that there is no need for the files that bring struct sk_buff
definition into this file and verified also that sk_buff is not brought
in indirectly too, thru other headers.

I went on and removed many other unneeded includes and the end
result is:

[acme@doppio net-2.6]$ l /tmp/sys_ia32.o.before /tmp/sys_ia32.o.after
-rw-rw-r-- 1 acme acme 185240 2008-02-06 19:19 /tmp/sys_ia32.o.after
-rw-rw-r-- 1 acme acme 248328 2008-02-06 19:00 /tmp/sys_ia32.o.before

Almost 64KB only on this object file!

There were no other side effects from this change:

[acme@doppio net-2.6]$ objcopy -j "text" /tmp/sys_ia32.o.before /tmp/text.before
[acme@doppio net-2.6]$ objcopy -j "text" /tmp/sys_ia32.o.after /tmp/text.after

One of the complaints about using tools such as systemtap is
that one has to install the huge kernel-debuginfo package:

11 years agox86: add code to dump the (kernel) page tables for visual inspection by kernel developers

x86: add code to dump the (kernel) page tables for visual inspection by kernel developers

This patch adds code to the kernel to have an (optional)
/proc/kernel_page_tables debug file that basically dumps the kernel
pagetables; this allows us kernel developers to verify that nothing fishy is
going on and that the various mappings are set up correctly. This was quite
useful in finding various change_page_attr() bugs, and is very likely to be
useful in the future as well.

11 years agox86 vDSO: don't map 32-bit vdso when disabled
Roland McGrath [Wed, 9 Apr 2008 08:30:06 +0000]
x86 vDSO: don't map 32-bit vdso when disabled

We map a VMA for the 32-bit vDSO even when it's disabled, which is stupid.
For the 32-bit kernel it's the vdso_enabled boot parameter/sysctl
and for the 64-bit kernel it's the vdso32 boot parameter/syscall32 sysctl.

When it's disabled, we don't pass AT_SYSINFO_EHDR so processes don't use
the vDSO for anything, but we still map it.  For the non-compat vDSO,
this means we're always putting an extra VMA somewhere, maybe lousing
up the control of the address space the user was hoping for.

Honor the setting by doing nothing in arch_setup_additional_pages.

11 years agox86 vDSO: don't use disabled vDSO for signal trampoline
Roland McGrath [Wed, 9 Apr 2008 08:29:27 +0000]
x86 vDSO: don't use disabled vDSO for signal trampoline

If the vDSO was not mapped, don't use it as the "restorer" for a signal
handler.  Whether we have a pointer in mm->context.vdso depends on what
happened at exec time, so we shouldn't check any global flags now.

Background:

Currently, every 32-bit exec gets the vDSO mapped even if it's disabled
(the process just doesn't get told about it).  Because it's in fact
always there, the bug that this patch fixes cannot happen now.  With
the second patch, it won't be mapped at all when it's disabled, which is
one of the things that people might really want when they disable it (so
nothing they didn't ask for goes into their address space).

The 32-bit signal handler setup when SA_RESTORER is not used refers to
current->mm->context.vdso without regard to whether the vDSO has been
disabled when the process was exec'd.  This patch fixes this not to use
it when it's null, which becomes possible after the second patch. (This
never happens in normal use, because glibc's sigaction call uses
SA_RESTORER unless glibc detected the vDSO.)

11 years agovfs: fix possible deadlock in ext2, ext3, ext4 when using xattrs
Jan Kara [Tue, 15 Apr 2008 21:34:43 +0000]
vfs: fix possible deadlock in ext2, ext3, ext4 when using xattrs

mb_cache_entry_alloc() was allocating cache entries with GFP_KERNEL.  But
filesystems are calling this function while holding xattr_sem so possible
recursion into the fs violates locking ordering of xattr_sem and transaction
start / i_mutex for ext2-4.  Change mb_cache_entry_alloc() so that filesystems
can specify desired gfp mask and use GFP_NOFS from all of them.

11 years agoDocumentation: correct overcommit caveat in hugetlbpage.txt
Nishanth Aravamudan [Tue, 15 Apr 2008 21:34:43 +0000]
Documentation: correct overcommit caveat in hugetlbpage.txt

As shown by Gurudas Pai recently, we can put hugepages into the surplus
state (by echo 0 > /proc/sys/vm/nr_hugepages), even when
/proc/sys/vm/nr_overcommit_hugepages is 0. This is actually correct, to
allow the original goal (shrink the static pool to 0) to succeed (we are
converting hugepages to surplus because they are in use). However, the
documentation does not accurately reflect this case. Update it.

11 years agomm: sparsemem memory_present() fix
Ingo Molnar [Tue, 15 Apr 2008 23:40:00 +0000]
mm: sparsemem memory_present() fix

Fix memory corruption and crash on 32-bit x86 systems.

If a !PAE x86 kernel is booted on a 32-bit system with more than 4GB of
RAM, then we call memory_present() with a start/end that goes outside
the scope of MAX_PHYSMEM_BITS.

That causes this loop to happily walk over the limit of the sparse
memory section map:

    for (pfn = start; pfn < end; pfn += PAGES_PER_SECTION) {
                unsigned long section = pfn_to_section_nr(pfn);
                struct mem_section *ms;

                sparse_index_init(section, nid);
                set_section_nid(section, nid);

                ms = __nr_to_section(section);
                if (!ms->section_mem_map)
                        ms->section_mem_map = sparse_encode_early_nid(nid) |
                                SECTION_MARKED_PRESENT;

'ms' will be out of bounds and we'll corrupt a small amount of memory by
encoding the node ID and writing SECTION_MARKED_PRESENT (==0x1) over it.

The corruption might happen when encoding a non-zero node ID, or due to
the SECTION_MARKED_PRESENT which is 0x1:

mmzone.h:#define SECTION_MARKED_PRESENT (1UL<<0)

The fix is to sanity check anything the architecture passes to
sparsemem.

This bug seems to be rather old (as old as sparsemem support itself),
but the exact incarnation depended on random details like configs, which
made this bug more prominent in v2.6.25-to-be.

An additional enhancement might be to print a warning about ignored or
trimmed memory ranges.

Fix locking bug in "acquire_console_semaphore_for_printk()"

When I cleaned up printk() and split up the printk locking logic in
commit 266c2e0abeca649fa6667a1a427ad1da507c6375 ("Make printk() console

have_callable_console() outside of the console semaphore.

11 years agonetconsole: only set CON_PRINTBUFFER if the user specifies a netconsole
Michael Ellerman [Tue, 15 Apr 2008 07:49:04 +0000]
netconsole: only set CON_PRINTBUFFER if the user specifies a netconsole

Since 0bcc1816188e570bde1d56a208996660f2633ae0 (netconsole: Support
dynamic reconfiguration using configfs), the netconsole is always
registered, regardless of whether the user actually specified a
netconsole configuration on the command line.

However because netconsole has CON_PRINTBUFFER set, when it is
registered it causes the printk buffer to be replayed to all consoles.
When there is no netconsole configured this is a) pointless, and b)
somewhat annoying for the user of the existing console.

So instead we should only set CON_PRINTBUFFER if there is a netconsole
configuration found on the command line. This retains the existing
behaviour if a netconsole is setup by the user, and avoids spamming
other consoles when we're only registering for the dynamic
netconsole case.
