KVM: VMX: Restore tss even on x86_64

The vmx hardware state restore restores the tss selector and base address, but
not its length.  Usually, this does not matter since most of the tss contents
is within the default length of 0x67.  However, if a process is using ioperm()
to grant itself I/O port permissions, an additional bitmap within the tss,
but outside the default length is consulted.  The effect is that the process
will receive a SIGSEGV instead of transparently accessing the port.

Fix by restoring the tss length.  Note that i386 had this working already.

Closes bugzilla 10246.

PCI: iova: lockdep false alarm fix

lockdep goes off on the iova copy_reserved_iova() because it and a function
it calls grabs locks in the from, and the to of the copy operation.

The function grab locks of the same lock classes triggering the warning.  The
first lock grabbed is for the constant reserved areas that is never accessed
after early boot.  Technically you could do without grabbing the locks for the
"from" structure its copying reserved areas from.

But dropping the from locks to me looks wrong, even though it would be ok.

The affected code only runs in early boot as its setting up the DMAR
engines.

USB: ehci: stop vt6212 bus hogging

The VIA VT6212 defaults to only waiting 1us between passes over EHCI's
async ring, which hammers PCI badly ... and by preventing other devices
from accessing the bus, causes problems like drops in IDE throughput,
a problem that's been bugging users of those chips for several years.

A (partial) datasheet for this chip eventually turned up, letting us
see how to make it use a VIA-specific register to switch over to the
the normal 10us value instead, as suggested by the EHCI specification
Solution noted by Lev A. Melnikovsky.

It's not clear whether this register exists on other VIA chips; we
know that it's ineffective on the vt8235.  So this patch only applies
to chips that seem to be incarnations of the (discrete) vt6212.

Mikael Pettersson [Sun, 23 Mar 2008 17:41:01 +0000]
sata_promise: fix hardreset hotplug events, take 2

A Promise SATA controller will signal hotplug events when a hard
reset (COMRESET) is done on a port. These events aren't masked by
the driver, and the unexpected interrupts will cause a sequence
of failed reset attempts util libata's EH finally gives up.

This has not been a common problem so far, but the pending libata
hardreset-by-default changes makes it a critical issue.

The solution is to disable hotplug events before a reset, and to
reenable them afterwards. (Promise's driver does this too.)

This patch adds SATA-specific versions of ->freeze() and ->thaw()
that also disable and enable hotplug events. PATA ports continue
to use the old versions of ->freeze() and ->thaw().

Accesses to the hotplug register must be serialised via host->lock.
We rely on ap->lock == &ap->host->lock and that libata takes this
lock before ->freeze() and ->thaw(). Document this requirement.
The interrupt handler is adjusted so its hotplug register accesses
are inside the region protected by host->lock.

Tested on various chips (SATA300TX4, SATA300TX2plus, SATAII150TX4,
FastTrack TX4000) with various combinations of SATA and PATA disks,
with and without the pending hardreset-by-default changes.

    notable especially when the system scans through many unfreeable pages,
    causing unnecessary stalls in the VM.

    Additionally, tasks without __GFP_FS or __GFP_IO in the direct reclaim path
    will sleep if a significant number of pages are encountered that should be
    written out.  This gives kswapd a chance to write out those pages, while
    the direct reclaim task sleeps.

hw_random doc updates

Update documentation for the hw_random support to be current:

 - Documentation/hw_random.txt has been updated to reflect the
   current code:  it's a framework now, a "core" with a small
   sysfs interface, that hardware-specific drivers plug in to.
   Text specific to Intel hardware is now at the end.

 - Kconfig now references the Documentation/hw_random.txt file
   and better explains what this really does.

Both chunks of documentation now higlight the fact that the kernel entropy
pool is maintained by "rngd", and this driver has nothing directly to do with
that important task.

Older smackfs was parsing MAC rules by characters, thus a need of locking
write sessions on open() was needed.  This lock is no longer useful now since

13 years agomm: fix boundary checking in free_bootmem_core
Yinghai Lu [Mon, 24 Mar 2008 19:29:45 +0000]
mm: fix boundary checking in free_bootmem_core

With numa enabled, some callers could have a range of memory on one node
but try to free that on other node.  This can cause some pages to be
freed wrongly.

For example: when we try to allocate 128g boot ram early for
gart/swiotlb, and free that range later so gart/swiotlb can get some
range afterwards.

With this patch, we don't need to care which node holds the range, just
loop to call free_bootmem_node for all online nodes.

This patch makes free_bootmem_core() more robust by trimming the sidx
and eidx according the ram range that the node has.

And make the free_bootmem_core handle this out of range case.  We could
use bdata_list to make sure the range can be freed for sure.  So next
time, we don't need to loop online nodes and could use free_bootmem
directly.

Interestingly, instead of not setting DRQ after IDENTIFY which

Roland Dreier [Mon, 24 Mar 2008 16:03:03 +0000]
SVCRDMA: Use only 1 RDMA read scatter entry for iWARP adapters

The iWARP protocol limits RDMA read requests to a single scatter
entry.  NFS/RDMA has code in rdma_read_max_sge() that is supposed to
limit the sge_count for RDMA read requests to 1, but the code to do
that is inside an #ifdef RDMA_TRANSPORT_IWARP block.  In the mainline
kernel at least, RDMA_TRANSPORT_IWARP is an enum and not a
preprocessor #define, so the #ifdef'ed code is never compiled.

In my test of a kernel build with -j8 on an NFS/RDMA mount, this
problem eventually leads to trouble starting with:

    svcrdma: Error posting send = -22
    svcrdma : RDMA_READ error = -22

and things go downhill from there.

The trivial fix is to delete the #ifdef guard.  The check seems to be
a remnant of when the NFS/RDMA code was not merged and needed to
compile against multiple kernel versions, although I don't think it
ever worked as intended.  In any case now that the code is upstream
there's no need to test whether the RDMA_TRANSPORT_IWARP constant is
defined or not.

Without this patch, my kernel build on an NFS/RDMA mount using NetEffect
adapters quickly and 100% reproducibly failed with an error like:

    ld: final link failed: Software caused connection abort

With the patch applied I was able to complete a kernel build on the
same setup.

(Tom Tucker says this is "actually an _ancient_ remnant when it had to
compile against iWARP vs. non-iWARP enabled OFA trees.")

[POWERPC] Fix Oops with TQM5200 on TQM5200

The "bestcomm-core" driver defines its of_match table as follows

static struct of_device_id mpc52xx_bcom_of_match[] = {
{ .type = "dma-controller", .compatible = "fsl,mpc5200-bestcomm", },
{ .type = "dma-controller", .compatible = "mpc5200-bestcomm", },
{},
};

so while registering the driver, the driver's probe function won't be
called, because the device tree node doesn't have a device_type
property.  Thus the driver's bcom_engine structure won't be allocated.
Referencing this structure later causes observed Oops.

Checking bcom_eng pointer for NULL before referencing data pointed
by it prevents oopsing, but fec driver still doesn't work (because
of the lost bestcomm match and resulted task allocation failure).
Actually the compatible property exists and should match and so
the fec driver should work.

This removes .type = "dma-controller" from the bestcomm driver's
mpc52xx_bcom_of_match table to solve the problem.

scheduled events at proper times. It tried to defend itself from
livelock by processing only limited number of events per dequeue.
Because of faster computers some users already hit this hardcoded
limit.

This patch limits processing up to 2 jiffies (why not 1 jiffie ?
because it might stop prematurely when only fraction of jiffie
remains).

kbuild: soften modpost checks when doing cross builds

The module alias support in the kernel have a consistency
check where it is checked that the size of a structure
in the kernel and on the build host are the same.
For cross builds this check does not make sense so detect

situations.
This fixes a build bug for a wireless driver when cross building

If we loop more than once in gem_poll(), we'll
use more than the real budget in our gem_rx()

ISAPNP: fix limits of logical device register set

PNP_MAX_MEM and PNP_MAX_PORT are mainly used to size tables of PNP
device resources.  In 2.6.24, we increased their values to accomodate
ACPI devices that have many resources:

                 2.6.23    2.6.24
                 ------    ------
  PNP_MAX_MEM       4         12
  PNP_MAX_PORT      8         40

However, ISAPNP also used these constants as the size of parts of the
logical device register set.  This register set is fixed by hardware,
so increasing the constants meant that we were reading and writing
unintended parts of the register set.

This patch changes ISAPNP to use the correct register set sizes (the
same values we used prior to 2.6.24).

13 years ago[TCP]: Let skbs grow over a page on fast peers
Herbert Xu [Sat, 22 Mar 2008 22:47:05 +0000]
[TCP]: Let skbs grow over a page on fast peers

While testing the virtio-net driver on KVM with TSO I noticed
that TSO performance with a 1500 MTU is significantly worse
compared to the performance of non-TSO with a 16436 MTU.  The
packet dump shows that most of the packets sent are smaller
than a page.

Looking at the code this actually is quite obvious as it always
stop extending the packet if it's the first packet yet to be
sent and if it's larger than the MSS.  Since each extension is
bound by the page size, this means that (given a 1500 MTU) we're
very unlikely to construct packets greater than a page, provided
that the receiver and the path is fast enough so that packets can
always be sent immediately.

The fix is also quite obvious.  The push calls inside the loop
is just an optimisation so that we don't end up doing all the
sending at the end of the loop.  Therefore there is no specific
reason why it has to do so at MSS boundaries.  For TSO, the
most natural extension of this optimisation is to do the pushing
once the skb exceeds the TSO size goal.

This is what the patch does and testing with KVM shows that the
TSO performance with a 1500 MTU easily surpasses that of a 16436
MTU and indeed the packet sizes sent are generally larger than
16436.

I don't see any obvious downsides for slower peers or connections,
but it would be prudent to test this extensively to ensure that
those cases don't regress.

13 years ago[SPARC64]: Remove most limitations to kernel image size.
David S. Miller [Sat, 22 Mar 2008 00:01:38 +0000]
[SPARC64]: Remove most limitations to kernel image size.

Currently kernel images are limited to 8MB in size, and this causes
problems especially when enabling features that take up a lot of
kernel image space such as lockdep.

The code now will align the kernel image size up to 4MB and map that
many locked TLB entries.  So, the only practical limitation is the
number of available locked TLB entries which is 16 on Cheetah and 64
on pre-Cheetah sparc64 cpus.  Niagara cpus don't actually have hw
locked TLB entry support.  Rather, the hypervisor transparently
provides support for "locked" TLB entries since it runs with physical
addressing and does the initial TLB miss processing.

Fully utilizing this change requires some help from SILO, a patch for
which will be submitted to the maintainer.  Essentially, SILO will
only currently map up to 8MB for the kernel image and that needs to be
increased.

Note that neither this patch nor the SILO bits will help with network
booting.  The openfirmware code will only map up to a certain amount
of kernel image during a network boot and there isn't much we can to
about that other than to implemented a layered network booting
facility.  Solaris has this, and calls it "wanboot" and we may
implement something similar at some point.

fix the bug reported here:

http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10232

use update_memory_range() instead of add_memory_range() directly
to avoid closing the gap.

( the new code only affects and runs on systems where the MTRR

almost near 4G..., and vmemmap_alloc_block will use up the ram under 4G.

solution will be:
1. make memmap allocation get memory above 4G...
2. reserve some dma32 range early before we try to set up memmap for all.
and release that before pci_iommu_alloc, so gart or swiotlb could get some
range under 4g limit for sure.

the patch is using method 2.
because method1 may need more code to handle SPARSEMEM and SPASEMEM_VMEMMAP

will get

We recently got some of the "Desktop Form Factor" Optiplex 745's in.  I
noticed that there's an entry for the SFF one's, but the BIOS model number
of the DFF differs from that of the SFF.  We have been reliably
experiencing the same (as far as I can tell) reboot bug as the SFF boxes.

13 years agox86: cast cmpxchg and cmpxchg_local result for 386 and 486
Mathieu Desnoyers [Thu, 6 Mar 2008 12:45:46 +0000]
x86: cast cmpxchg and cmpxchg_local result for 386 and 486

mm/slub.c: In function 'slab_alloc':
mm/slub.c:1637: warning: assignment makes pointer from integer without a cast
mm/slub.c:1637: warning: assignment makes pointer from integer without a cast
mm/slub.c: In function 'slab_free':
mm/slub.c:1796: warning: assignment makes pointer from integer without a cast
mm/slub.c:1796: warning: assignment makes pointer from integer without a cast

A cast is needed in the 386 and 486 code because the type is a pointer.  In
every other integer case the original cmpxchg code (and the cmpxchg_local
which has been copied from it) worked fine, but since we touch a pointer,
the type needs to be casted in the cmpxchg_local and cmpxchg macros.

The more recent code (586+) does not have this problem (the cast is already
there).
