15 years ago[ARM] Do not call flush_tlb_kernel_range() with IRQs disabled.
Russell King [Fri, 25 Nov 2005 15:52:51 +0000]
[ARM] Do not call flush_tlb_kernel_range() with IRQs disabled.

We must not call TLB maintainence operations with interrupts disabled,
otherwise we risk a lockup in the SMP IPI code.

This means that consistent_free() can not be called from a context with
IRQs disabled.  In addition, we must not hold the lock in consistent_free
when we call flush_tlb_kernel_range().  However, we must continue to
prevent consistent_alloc() from re-using the memory region until we've
finished tearing down the mapping and dealing with the TLB.

Therefore, leave the vm_region entry in the list, but mark it inactive
before dropping the lock and starting the tear-down process.  After the
mapping has been torn down, re-acquire the lock and remove the entry
from the list.

[PATCH] USB: EHCI updates split init/reinit logic for resume

Moving the PCI-specific parts of the EHCI driver into their own file
created a few issues ... notably on resume paths which (like swsusp)
require re-initializing the controller.  This patch:

 - Splits the EHCI startup code into run-once HCD setup code and
   separate "init the hardware" reinit code.  (That reinit code is
   a superset of the "early usb handoff" code.)

 - Then it makes the PCI init code run both, and the resume code only
   run the reinit code.

 - It also removes needless pci wrappers around EHCI start/stop methods.

 - Removes a byteswap issue that would be seen on big-endian hardware.

The HCD glue still doesn't actually provide a good way to do all this
run-one init stuff in one place though.

This fixes some bugs in EHCI suspend/resume that joined us over the past
few releases (as usbcore, PCI, pmcore, and other components evolved):

  - Removes suspend and resume recursion from the EHCI driver, getting
    rid of the USB_SUSPEND special casing.

  - Updates the wakeup mechanism to work again; there's a newish usbcore
    call it needs to use.

  - Provide simpler tests for "do we need to restart from scratch", to
    address another case where PCI Vaux was lost.  (In this case it was
    restoring a swsusp snapshot, but there could be others.)

Un-exports a symbol that was temporarily exported.

A notable change from previous version is that this doesn't move
the spinlock init, so there's still a resume/reinit path bug.

[PATCH] powerpc: fix for hugepage areas straddling 4GB boundary

Commit 7d24f0b8a53261709938ffabe3e00f88f6498df9 fixed bugs in the ppc64 SLB
miss handler with respect to hugepage handling, and in the process tweaked
the semantics of the hugepage address masks in mm_context_t.

Unfortunately, it left out a couple of necessary changes to go with that
change.  First, the in_hugepage_area() macro was not updated to match,
second prepare_hugepage_range() was not updated to correctly handle
hugepages regions which straddled the 4GB point.

The latter appears only to cause process-hangs when attempting to map such
a region, but the former can cause oopses if a get_user_pages() is
triggered at the wrong point.  This patch addresses both bugs.

[PATCH] fix do_wait() vs exec() race

When non-leader thread does exec, de_thread adds old leader to the init's
->children list in EXIT_ZOMBIE state and drops tasklist_lock.

This means that release_task(leader) in de_thread() is racy vs do_wait()
from init task.

I think de_thread() should set old leader's state to EXIT_DEAD instead.

Jim Keniston [Wed, 23 Nov 2005 21:37:42 +0000]
[PATCH] kprobes: Fix return probes on sys_execve

Fix a bug in kprobes that can cause an Oops or even a crash when a return
probe is installed on one of the following functions: sys_execve,
do_execve, load_*_binary, flush_old_exec, or flush_thread.  The fix is to
remove the call to kprobe_flush_task() in flush_thread().  This fix has
been tested on all architectures for which the return-probes feature has
been implemented (i386, x86_64, ppc64, ia64).  Please apply.

BACKGROUND

Up to now, we have called kprobe_flush_task() under two situations: when a
task exits, and when it execs.  Flushing kretprobe_instances on exit is
correct because (a) do_exit() doesn't return, and (b) one or more
return-probed functions may be active when a task calls do_exit().  Neither
is the case for sys_execve() and its callees.

Initially, the mistaken call to kprobe_flush_task() on exec was harmless
because we put the "real" return address of each active probed function
back in the stack, just to be safe, when we recycled its
kretprobe_instance.  When support for ppc64 and ia64 was added, this safety
measure couldn't be employed, and was eventually dropped even for i386 and
x86_64.  sys_execve() and its callees were informally blacklisted for
return probes until this fix was developed.

Hugh Dickins [Wed, 23 Nov 2005 21:37:37 +0000]
[PATCH] mm: update split ptlock Kconfig

Closer attention to the arithmetic shows that neither ppc64 nor sparc really
uses one page for multiple page tables: how on earth could they, while
pte_alloc_one returns just a struct page pointer, with no offset?

Well, arm26 manages it by returning a pte_t pointer cast to a struct page
pointer, harumph, then compensating in its pmd_populate.  But arm26 is never
SMP, so it's not a problem for split ptlock either.

And the PA-RISC situation has been recently improved: CONFIG_PA20 works
without the 16-byte alignment which inflated its spinlock_t.  But the current
union of spinlock_t with private does make the 7xxx struct page significantly
larger, even without debug, so disable its split ptlock.

Alasdair G Kergon [Tue, 22 Nov 2005 05:32:34 +0000]
[PATCH] device-mapper: mirror log bitset fix

The linux bitset operators (test_bit, set_bit etc) work on arrays of "unsigned
long".  dm-log uses such bitsets but treats them as arrays of uint32_t, only
allocating and zeroing a multiple of 4 bytes (as 'clean_bits' is a uint32_t).

The patch below fixes this problem.

The problem is specific to 64-bit big endian machines such as s390x or ppc-64
and can prevent pvmove terminating.

In the simplest case, if "region_count" were (say) 30, then
bitset_size (below) would be 4 and bitset_uint32_count would be 1.
Thus the memory for this butset, after allocation and zeroing would
be
   0 0 0 0 X X X X
On a bigendian 64bit machine, bit 0 for this bitset is in the 8th
byte! (and every bit that dm-log would use would be in the X area).

   0 0 0 0 X X X X
                 ^
                 here

which hasn't been cleared properly.

As the dm-raid1 code only syncs and counts regions which have a 0 in the
'sync_bits' bitset, and only finishes when it has counted high enough, a large
number of 1's among those 'X's will cause the sync to not complete.

It is worth noting that the code uses the same bitsets for in-memory and
on-disk logs.  As these bitsets are host-endian and host-sized, this means
that they cannot safely be moved between computers with

Alasdair G Kergon [Tue, 22 Nov 2005 05:32:33 +0000]
[PATCH] device-mapper: list_versions fix

In some circumstances the LIST_VERSIONS output is truncated because the size
calculation forgets about a 'uint32_t' in each structure - but the inclusion
of the whole of ALIGN_MASK frequently compensates for the omission.

This is a quick workaround to use an upper bound.  (The code ought to be fixed
to supply the actual size.)

Running 'dmsetup targets' may demonstrate the problem: when I run it, the last
line comes out as 'erro' instead of 'error'.  Consequently, 'lvcreate --type
error' doesn't work.

If there are multiple updaters to /proc/sys/vm/nr_hugepages simultaneously
it is possible for the nr_huge_pages variable to become incorrect.  There
is no locking in the set_max_huge_pages function around
alloc_fresh_huge_page which is able to update nr_huge_pages.  Two callers
to alloc_fresh_huge_page could race against each other as could a call to
alloc_fresh_huge_page and a call to update_and_free_page.  This patch just
expands the area covered by the hugetlb_lock to cover the call into
alloc_fresh_huge_page.  I'm not sure how we could say that a sysctl section
is performance critical where more specific locking would be needed.

My reproducer was to run a couple copies of the following script
simultaneously

Antonino A. Daplas [Tue, 22 Nov 2005 05:32:26 +0000]
[PATCH] vgacon: Fix usage of stale height value on vc initialization

Reported by: Wayne E. Harlan

"[1.] One line summary of the problem:
When the kernel option "vga=1" is used, additional tty's (alt+control+Fx
with x=2,3,4,5, etc) do not provide the full 50 lines of output.  The first
one does have 50 lines, however.

[2.] Full description of the problem/report:
These addtitional tty's show only 39 lines plus the top pixel of the 40-th
line.  The remaining lines are black and not shown.  Kernel version
2.6.13.4 does not show this problem."

This bug is caused by using a stale font height value on vgacon_init.

Booting with vga=1 gives an 80x50 screen with an 8x8 font.  Somewhere
during the initialization, the font was changed to 8x9 and the first
vc was correctly resized to 80x44.  However, the rest of the vc's were
not allocated yet, and when they were subsequently initialized, they
still used a font height of 8 (instead of 9) causing the mentioned bug.

Fix by saving the new font height to vga_video_font_height.

David Gibson [Tue, 22 Nov 2005 05:32:23 +0000]
[PATCH] Fix error handling with put_compat_statfs()

In fs/compat.c, whenever put_compat_statfs() returns an error, the
containing syscall returns -EFAULT.  This is presumably by analogy with the
non-compat case, where any non-zero code from copy_to_user() should be
translated into an EFAULT.  However, put_compat_statfs() is also return
-EOVERFLOW.  The same applies for put_compat_statfs64().

This bug can be observed with a statfs() on a hugetlbfs directory.
hugetlbfs, when mounted without limits reports available, free and total
blocks as -1 (itself a bug, another patch coming).  statfs() will
mysteriously return EFAULT although it's parameters are perfectly valid
addresses.

This patch causes the compat versions of statfs() and statfs64() to
correctly propogate the return values from put_compat_statfs() and
put_compat_statfs64().

[PATCH] unpaged: fix sound Bad page states

Earlier I unifdefed PageCompound, so that snd_pcm_mmap_control_nopage and
others can give out a 0-order component of a higher-order page, which won't
be mistakenly freed when zap_pte_range unmaps it.  But many Bad page states
reported a PG_reserved was freed after all: I had missed that we need to
say __GFP_COMP to get compound page behaviour.

Some of these higher-order pages are allocated by snd_malloc_pages, some by
snd_malloc_dev_pages; or if SBUS, by sbus_alloc_consistent - but that has
no gfp arg, so add __GFP_COMP into its sparc32/64 implementations.

I'm still rather puzzled that DRM seems not to need a similar change.

[PATCH] unpaged: anon in VM_UNPAGED

copy_one_pte needs to copy the anonymous COWed pages in a VM_UNPAGED area,
zap_pte_range needs to free them, do_wp_page needs to COW them: just like
ordinary pages, not like the unpaged.

But recognizing them is a little subtle: because PageReserved is no longer a
condition for remap_pfn_range, we can now mmap all of /dev/mem (whether the
distro permits, and whether it's advisable on this or that architecture, is
another matter).  So if we can see a PageAnon, it may not be ours to mess with
(or may be ours from elsewhere in the address space).  I suspect there's an
entertaining insoluble self-referential problem here, but the page_is_anon
function does a good practical job, and MAP_PRIVATE PROT_WRITE VM_UNPAGED will
always be an odd choice.

dereference, in a path we don't actually take, but fixed it.

 But that's an empty set - they don't have the populate function required.  So
just throw away those VM_RESERVED tests.

But one more interesting in rmap.c has to go too: try_to_unmap_one will want

[PATCH] unpaged: VM_UNPAGED

Although we tend to associate VM_RESERVED with remap_pfn_range, quite a few
drivers set VM_RESERVED on areas which are then populated by nopage.  The
PageReserved removal in 2.6.15-rc1 changed VM_RESERVED not to free pages in
zap_pte_range, without changing those drivers not to set it: so their pages
just leak away.

Let's not change miscellaneous drivers now: introduce VM_UNPAGED at the core,
to flag the special areas where the ptes may have no struct page, or if they
have then it's not to be touched.  Replace most instances of VM_RESERVED in
core mm by VM_UNPAGED.  Force it on in remap_pfn_range, and the sparc and
sparc64 io_remap_pfn_range.

Revert addition of VM_RESERVED to powerpc vdso, it's not needed there.  Is it
needed anywhere?  It still governs the mm->reserved_vm statistic, and special
vmas not to be merged, and areas not to be core dumped; but could probably be
eliminated later (the drivers are probably specifying it because in 2.4 it
kept swapout off the vma, but in 2.6 we work from the LRU, which these pages
don't get on).

Use the VM_SHM slot for VM_UNPAGED, and define VM_SHM to 0: it serves no
purpose whatsoever, and should be removed from drivers when we clean up.

That's just what PageCompound is designed for, but it's been kept under
CONFIG_HUGETLB_PAGE.  Remove the #ifdefs: which saves some space (out- of-line
put_page), doesn't slow down what most needs to be fast (already using

Something noticed when studying use of VM_RESERVED in different drivers:
snd_usX2Y_hwdep_pcm_vm_nopage omitted to get_page: fixed.

And how did this work before?  Aargh!  That nopage is returning a page from
within a buffer allocated by snd_malloc_pages, which allocates a high-order
page, then does SetPageReserved on each 0-order page within.

That would have worked in 2.6.14, because when the area was unmapped,
PageReserved inhibited put_page.  2.6.15-rc1 removed that inhibition (while
leaving ineffective PageReserveds around for now), but it hasn't caused
trouble because..  we've not been freeing from VM_RESERVED at all.

[PATCH] unpaged: private write VM_RESERVED

The PageReserved removal in 2.6.15-rc1 issued a "deprecated" message when you
tried to mmap or mprotect MAP_PRIVATE PROT_WRITE a VM_RESERVED, and failed
with -EACCES: because do_wp_page lacks the refinement to COW pages in those
areas, nor do we expect to find anonymous pages in them; and it seemed just
bloat to add code for handling such a peculiar case.  But immediately it
caused vbetool and ddcprobe (using lrmi) to fail.

So revert the "deprecated" messages, letting mmap and mprotect succeed.  But
leave do_wp_page's BUG_ON(vma->vm_flags & VM_RESERVED) in place until we've
added the code to do it right: so this particular patch is only good if the
app doesn't really need to write to that private area.

[PATCH] unpaged: get_user_pages VM_RESERVED

The PageReserved removal in 2.6.15-rc1 prohibited get_user_pages on the areas
flagged VM_RESERVED in place of PageReserved.  That is correct in theory - we
ought not to interfere with struct pages in such a reserved area; but in
practice it broke BTTV for one.

So revert to prohibiting only on VM_IO: if someone gets into trouble with
get_user_pages on VM_RESERVED, it'll just be a "don't do that".

You can argue that videobuf_mmap_mapper shouldn't set VM_RESERVED in the first
place, but now's not the time for breaking drivers without notice.

On some systems, libc PAGE_SIZE calls getpagesize, which can't happen from a

[PATCH] uml: properly invoke x86_64 system calls

This patch makes stub_segv use the stub_syscall macros.  This was needed
anyway, but the bug that prompted this was the discovery that gcc was storing
stuff in RCX, which is trashed across a system call.  This is exactly the sort
of problem that the new macros fix.

There is a stub_syscall0 for getpid.  stub_segv was changed to be a libc file,
and that caused some include changes.

This gives a name to the anonymous union introduced in skas-hold-own-ldt,
allowing to build on a wider range of gccs.

It also removes ldt.h, which somehow became real, and replaces it with a
symlink, and creates ldt-x86_64.h as a copy of ldt-i386.h for now.

Jeff Dike [Tue, 22 Nov 2005 05:32:04 +0000]
[PATCH] uml: eliminate use of local in clone stub

We have a bug in the i386 stub_syscall6 which pushes ebp before the system
call and pops it afterwards.  Because we use syscall6 to remap the stack, the
old contents of the stack (and the former value of ebp) are no longer
available.  Some versions of gcc make from a real local, accessed through ebp,
despite my efforts to make it obvious that references to from are really
constants.  This patch attempts to make it even more obvious by eliminating
from and using a macro to access the stub's data explicitly with constants.

My original thinking on this was to replace syscall6 with a remap_stack
interface which saved ebp someplace and restored it afterwards.  The problem
is that there are no registers to put it in, except for esp.  That could work,
since we can store a constant in esp after the mmap because we just replaced
the stack.  However, this approach seems a tad cleaner.
