16 years ago[PATCH] ISA DMA Kconfig fixes - part 1
Al Viro [Wed, 4 May 2005 04:39:22 +0000]
[PATCH] ISA DMA Kconfig fixes - part 1

A bunch of drivers use ISA DMA helpers or their equivalents for
platforms that have ISA with different DMA controller (a lot of ARM
boxen).  Currently there is no way to put such dependency in Kconfig -
CONFIG_ISA is not it (e.g.  it is not set on platforms that have no ISA
slots, but have on-board devices that pretend to be ISA ones).

New symbol added - ISA_DMA_API.  Set when we have functional
enable_dma()/set_dma_mode()/etc.  set of helpers.  Next patches in the
series will add missing dependencies for drivers that need them.

I'm very carefully staying the hell out of the recurring flamefest on
what exactly CONFIG_ISA would mean in ideal world - added symbol has a
well-defined meaning and for now I really want to treat it as completely
independent from the mess around CONFIG_ISA.

   do that is reported more correctly.

 - Courtesy Colin Leroy, a patch to always power up ports after resumes
   which didn't keep a USB device suspended.  The reset-everything logic
   powers down those ports (on some hardware) so something needs to turn

[IPSEC]: Store idev entries

I found a bug that stopped IPsec/IPv6 from working.  About
a month ago IPv6 started using rt6i_idev->dev on the cached socket dst
entries.  If the cached socket dst entry is IPsec, then rt6i_idev will
be NULL.

Since we want to look at the rt6i_idev of the original route in this
case, the easiest fix is to store rt6i_idev in the IPsec dst entry just
as we do for a number of other IPv6 route attributes.  Unfortunately
this means that we need some new code to handle the references to
rt6i_idev.  That's why this patch is bigger than it would otherwise be.

I've also done the same thing for IPv4 since it is conceivable that
once these idev attributes start getting used for accounting, we
probably need to dereference them for IPv4 IPsec entries too.

Due to bugs in netem (fixed by later patches), it is possible to get qdisc
qlen to go negative. If this happens the CPU ends up spinning forever
in qdisc_run(). So add a BUG_ON() to trap it.

16 years ago[NETLINK]: Synchronous message processing.
Herbert Xu [Tue, 3 May 2005 21:55:09 +0000]
[NETLINK]: Synchronous message processing.

Let's recap the problem.  The current asynchronous netlink kernel
message processing is vulnerable to these attacks:

1) Hit and run: Attacker sends one or more messages and then exits
before they're processed.  This may confuse/disable the next netlink
user that gets the netlink address of the attacker since it may
receive the responses to the attacker's messages.

Proposed solutions:

a) Synchronous processing.
b) Stream mode socket.
c) Restrict/prohibit binding.

2) Starvation: Because various netlink rcv functions were written
to not return until all messages have been processed on a socket,
it is possible for these functions to execute for an arbitrarily
long period of time.  If this is successfully exploited it could
also be used to hold rtnl forever.

Proposed solutions:

a) Synchronous processing.
b) Stream mode socket.

Firstly let's cross off solution c).  It only solves the first
problem and it has user-visible impacts.  In particular, it'll
break user space applications that expect to bind or communicate
with specific netlink addresses (pid's).

So we're left with a choice of synchronous processing versus
SOCK_STREAM for netlink.

For the moment I'm sticking with the synchronous approach as
suggested by Alexey since it's simpler and I'd rather spend
my time working on other things.

However, it does have a number of deficiencies compared to the
stream mode solution:

1) User-space to user-space netlink communication is still vulnerable.

2) Inefficient use of resources.  This is especially true for rtnetlink
since the lock is shared with other users such as networking drivers.
The latter could hold the rtnl while communicating with hardware which
causes the rtnetlink user to wait when it could be doing other things.

3) It is still possible to DoS all netlink users by flooding the kernel
netlink receive queue.  The attacker simply fills the receive socket
with a single netlink message that fills up the entire queue.  The
attacker then continues to call sendmsg with the same message in a loop.

Point 3) can be countered by retransmissions in user-space code, however
it is pretty messy.

In light of these problems (in particular, point 3), we should implement
stream mode netlink at some point.  In the mean time, here is a patch
that implements synchronous processing.

Herbert Xu [Tue, 3 May 2005 21:43:27 +0000]
[NETLINK]: cb_lock does not needs ref count on sk

Here is a little optimisation for the cb_lock used by netlink_dump.
While fixing that race earlier, I noticed that the reference count
held by cb_lock is completely useless.  The reason is that in order
to obtain the protection of the reference count, you have to take
the cb_lock.  But the only way to take the cb_lock is through
dereferencing the socket.

That is, you must already possess a reference count on the socket
before you can take advantage of the reference count held by cb_lock.
As a corollary, we can remve the reference count held by the cb_lock.

gcc-4.0 generates altivec code implicitly when -mcpu indicates an
altivec capable CPU which is not suitable for the kernel.  However, we
used to set -mcpu=970 when CONFIG_ALTIVEC was set because a gcc-3.x bug
prevented from using -maltivec along with -mcpu=power4, thus prevented
building the RAID6 altivec code.

This patch fixes all of this by testing for the gcc version.  If 4.0 or
later, just normally use -mcpu=power4 and let the RAID6 code add
-maltivec to the few files it needs to be compiled with altivec support.
For 3.x, we still use -mcpu=970 to work around the above problem, which
is fine as 3.x will never implicitly generate altivec code.

The Makefile hackery may not be the most lovely, I welcome anybody more

[PATCH] cpufreq annoying warning fix

The cpufreq core patch I sent earlier got only half-applied.  I added a
flag to let the low level driver disable an annoying warning on
suspend/resume that is normal on ppc, but the "resume" part of it wasn't
applied.

This just adds back that missing bit.  The original patch also reworked
the resume() function to avoid nesting too many if () statements along
the way I did the suspend() one, but I didn't include that in the patch
below.

[PATCH] ppc32: Fix might_sleep() warning with clock spreading

The clock spreading disable/enable code was called to late/early during
the suspend/resume code on some laptops and would trigger a
might_sleep() warning due to the down() call in the low level i2c code.

This fixes it by calling those functions earlier/later when interrupts
are still enabled.

[PATCH] ppc32: More fixlet for pmac sound

As Al Viro noticed, my previous fix missed one instance of "device" in
the driver local debug code. Harmless unless you tweak the #define's in
there but still work fixing.

[PATCH] ppc32: Fix sleep on old 101 PowerBook

A typo in the machine table incorrectly mark the 101 PowerBook as
needing explicit callback from the video driver to enable sleep mode. I
did not implement that mecanism for chipsest older than r128, so we need
to mark this machine as always beeing able to sleep for now.

My newer iMac mini driver doesn't build with verbose debug enabled.

This fixes it, and removes an erroneous error printk (since it's normal
on some machine to not find some gpios on the "first try").

[PATCH] ppc32: Workaround a cache flush issue on sleep

We are experiencing a problem when flushing the CPU caches before sleep
on some laptop models using the 750FX CPU rev 1.X. While I haven't been
able to figure out a proper explanation for what's going on, I do have a
workaround that seem to work reliably and allows those machine to sleep
and wakeup properly again.

I'll re-update that code if/when I ever find exactly what is happening
with those CPU revisions.
