asm-generic/dma-mapping-broken.h: Provide dma_alloc_attrs()/dma_free_attrs()

Since commit 0049fb2603b7afb1080776ee691dfa5a3d282357 ("OMAPFB: use
dma_alloc_attrs to allocate memory") we have one non-arch user of
dma_{alloc,free}_attrs().

Hence provide these functions, as wrappers around
dma_{alloc,free}_coherent().

Note that most architectures do it the other way around. But as these are
dummy functions, we don't care.

Targets can set this field in the constructor. If a target sets this
field to a non-zero value, "per_bio_data_size" bytes of auxiliary data
are allocated for each bio submitted to the target. These data can be

Per-bio data is accessed with dm_per_bio_data. The
argument data_size must be the same as the value per_bio_data_size in
dm_target.

If the target has a pointer to per_bio_data, it can get a pointer to

6 years agodm thin: fix race between simultaneous io and discards to same block
Joe Thornber [Fri, 21 Dec 2012 20:23:31 +0000]
dm thin: fix race between simultaneous io and discards to same block

There is a race when discard bios and non-discard bios are issued
simultaneously to the same block.

Discard support is expensive for all thin devices precisely because you
have to be careful to quiesce the area you're discarding.  DM thin must
handle this conflicting IO pattern (simultaneous non-discard vs discard)
even though a sane application shouldn't be issuing such IO.

The race manifests as follows:

1. A non-discard bio is mapped in thin_bio_map.
   This doesn't lock out parallel activity to the same block.

2. A discard bio is issued to the same block as the non-discard bio.

3. The discard bio is locked in a dm_bio_prison_cell in process_discard
   to lock out parallel activity against the same block.

4. The non-discard bio's mapping continues and its all_io_entry is
   incremented so the bio is accounted for in the thin pool's all_io_ds
   which is a dm_deferred_set used to track time locality of non-discard IO.

5. The non-discard bio is finally locked in a dm_bio_prison_cell in
   process_bio.

The race can result in deadlock, leaving the block layer hanging waiting
for completion of a discard bio that never completes, e.g.:

INFO: task ruby:15354 blocked for more than 120 seconds.

The thinp-test-suite's test_discard_random_sectors reliably hits this
deadlock on fast SSD storage.

The fix for this race is that the all_io_entry for a bio must be
incremented whilst the dm_bio_prison_cell is held for the bio's
associated virtual and physical blocks.  That cell locking wasn't
occurring early enough in thin_bio_map.  This patch fixes this.

Care is taken to always call the new function inc_all_io_entry() with
the relevant cells locked, but they are generally unlocked before
calling issue() to try to avoid holding the cells locked across
generic_submit_request.

Also, now that thin_bio_map may lock bios in a cell, process_bio() is no
longer the only thread that will do so.  Because of this we must be sure
to use cell_defer_except() to release all non-holder entries, that
were added by the other thread, because they must be deferred.

This patch depends on "dm thin: replace dm_cell_release_singleton with
cell_defer_except".

6 years agodm thin: replace dm_cell_release_singleton with cell_defer_except
Joe Thornber [Fri, 21 Dec 2012 20:23:31 +0000]
dm thin: replace dm_cell_release_singleton with cell_defer_except

Change existing users of the function dm_cell_release_singleton to share
cell_defer_except instead, and then remove the now-unused function.

Everywhere that calls dm_cell_release_singleton, the bio in question
is the holder of the cell.

If there are no non-holder entries in the cell then cell_defer_except
behaves exactly like dm_cell_release_singleton.  Conversely, if there
*are* non-holder entries then dm_cell_release_singleton must not be used
because those entries would need to be deferred.

Consequently, it is safe to replace use of dm_cell_release_singleton
with cell_defer_except.

This patch is a pre-requisite for "dm thin: fix race between
simultaneous io and discards to same block".

6 years agodm ioctl: prevent unsafe change to dm_ioctl data_size
Alasdair G Kergon [Fri, 21 Dec 2012 20:23:30 +0000]
dm ioctl: prevent unsafe change to dm_ioctl data_size

Abort dm ioctl processing if userspace changes the data_size parameter
after we validated it but before we finished copying the data buffer
from userspace.

The dm ioctl parameters are processed in the following sequence:
 1. ctl_ioctl() calls copy_params();
 2. copy_params() makes a first copy of the fixed-sized portion of the
    userspace parameters into the local variable "tmp";
 3. copy_params() then validates tmp.data_size and allocates a new
    structure big enough to hold the complete data and copies the whole
    userspace buffer there;
 4. ctl_ioctl() reads userspace data the second time and copies the whole
    buffer into the pointer "param";
 5. ctl_ioctl() reads param->data_size without any validation and stores it
    in the variable "input_param_size";
 6. "input_param_size" is further used as the authoritative size of the
    kernel buffer.

The problem is that userspace code could change the contents of user
memory between steps 2 and 4.  In particular, the data_size parameter
can be changed to an invalid value after the kernel has validated it.
This lets userspace force the kernel to access invalid kernel memory.

The fix is to ensure that the size has not changed at step 4.

This patch shouldn't have a security impact because CAP_SYS_ADMIN is
required to run this code, but it should be fixed anyway.

SGI-XP: handle non-fatal traps

We found a user code which was raising a divide-by-zero trap.  That trap
would lead to XPC connections between system-partitions being torn down
due to the die_chain notifier callouts it received.

This also revealed a different issue where multiple callers into
xpc_die_deactivate() would all attempt to do the disconnect in parallel
which would sometimes lock up but often overwhelm the console on very
large machines as each would print at least one line of output at the
end of the deactivate.

I reviewed all the users of the die_chain notifier and changed the code
to ignore the notifier callouts for reasons which will not actually lead
to a system to continue on to call die().

6 years agolinux/kernel.h: fix DIV_ROUND_CLOSEST with unsigned divisors
Guenter Roeck [Thu, 20 Dec 2012 23:05:42 +0000]
linux/kernel.h: fix DIV_ROUND_CLOSEST with unsigned divisors

Commit 263a523d18bc ("linux/kernel.h: Fix warning seen with W=1 due to
change in DIV_ROUND_CLOSEST") fixes a warning seen with W=1 due to
change in DIV_ROUND_CLOSEST.

Unfortunately, the C compiler converts divide operations with unsigned
divisors to unsigned, even if the dividend is signed and negative (for
example, -10 / 5U = 858993457).  The C standard says "If one operand has
unsigned int type, the other operand is converted to unsigned int", so
the compiler is not to blame.  As a result, DIV_ROUND_CLOSEST(0, 2U) and
similar operations now return bad values, since the automatic conversion
of expressions such as "0 - 2U/2" to unsigned was not taken into
account.

Fix by checking for the divisor variable type when deciding which
operation to perform.  This fixes DIV_ROUND_CLOSEST(0, 2U), but still
returns bad values for negative dividends divided by unsigned divisors.
Mark the latter case as unsupported.

One observed effect of this problem is that the s2c_hwmon driver reports
a value of 4198403 instead of 0 if the ADC reads 0.

Other impact is unpredictable.  Problem is seen if the divisor is an
unsigned variable or constant and the dividend is less than (divisor/2).

6 years agomemcg: don't register hotcpu notifier from ->css_alloc()
Tejun Heo [Thu, 20 Dec 2012 23:05:40 +0000]
memcg: don't register hotcpu notifier from ->css_alloc()

Commit 648bb56d076b ("cgroup: lock cgroup_mutex in cgroup_init_subsys()")
made cgroup_init_subsys() grab cgroup_mutex before invoking
->css_alloc() for the root css.  Because memcg registers hotcpu notifier
from ->css_alloc() for the root css, this introduced circular locking
dependency between cgroup_mutex and cpu hotplug.

Fix it by moving hotcpu notifier registration to a subsys initcall.

6 years agorevert "rtc: recycle id when unloading a rtc driver"
Andrew Morton [Thu, 20 Dec 2012 23:05:34 +0000]
revert "rtc: recycle id when unloading a rtc driver"

Revert commit 2830a6d20139df2198d63235df7957712adb28e5.

We already perform the ida_simple_remove() in rtc_device_release(),
which is an appropriate place.  Commit 2830a6d20 ("rtc: recycle id when
unloading a rtc driver") caused the kernel to emit

ida_remove called for id=0 which is not allocated.

warnings when rtc_device_release() tries to release an alread-released
ID.

Let's restore things to their previous state and then work out why
Vincent's kernel wasn't calling rtc_device_release() - presumably a bug
in a specific sub-driver.

6 years agoexec: do not leave bprm->interp on stack
Kees Cook [Thu, 20 Dec 2012 23:05:16 +0000]
exec: do not leave bprm->interp on stack

If a series of scripts are executed, each triggering module loading via
unprintable bytes in the script header, kernel stack contents can leak
into the command line.

Normally execution of binfmt_script and binfmt_misc happens recursively.
However, when modules are enabled, and unprintable bytes exist in the
bprm->buf, execution will restart after attempting to load matching
binfmt modules.  Unfortunately, the logic in binfmt_script and
binfmt_misc does not expect to get restarted.  They leave bprm->interp
pointing to their local stack.  This means on restart bprm->interp is
left pointing into unused stack memory which can then be copied into the
userspace argv areas.

After additional study, it seems that both recursion and restart remains
the desirable way to handle exec with scripts, misc, and modules.  As
such, we need to protect the changes to interp.

This changes the logic to require allocation for any changes to the
bprm->interp.  To avoid adding a new kmalloc to every exec, the default
value is left as-is.  Only when passing through binfmt_script or
binfmt_misc does an allocation take place.

For a proof of concept, see DoTest.sh from:

6 years agodrivers/firmware/dmi_scan.c: fetch dmi version from SMBIOS if it exists
Zhenzhong Duan [Thu, 20 Dec 2012 23:05:14 +0000]
drivers/firmware/dmi_scan.c: fetch dmi version from SMBIOS if it exists

The right dmi version is in SMBIOS if it's zero in DMI region

This issue was originally found from an oracle bug.
One customer noticed system UUID doesn't match between dmidecode & uek2.

 - HP ProLiant BL460c G6 :
   # cat /sys/devices/virtual/dmi/id/product_uuid
   00000000-0000-4C48-3031-4D5030333531
   # dmidecode | grep -i uuid
   UUID: 00000000-0000-484C-3031-4D5030333531

From SMBIOS 2.6 on, spec use little-endian encoding for UUID other than
network byte order.

So we need to get dmi version to distinguish.  If version is 0.0, the
real version is taken from the SMBIOS version.  This is part of original
kernel comment in code.

6 years agomm: fix calculation of dirtyable memory
Sonny Rao [Thu, 20 Dec 2012 23:05:07 +0000]
mm: fix calculation of dirtyable memory

The system uses global_dirtyable_memory() to calculate number of
dirtyable pages/pages that can be allocated to the page cache.  A bug
causes an underflow thus making the page count look like a big unsigned
number.  This in turn confuses the dirty writeback throttling to
aggressively write back pages as they become dirty (usually 1 page at a
time).  This generally only affects systems with highmem because the
underflowed count gets subtracted from the global count of dirtyable
memory.

The problem was introduced with v3.2-4896-gab8fabd

Fix is to ensure we don't get an underflowed total of either highmem or
global dirtyable memory.
