Eric W. Biederman [Sun, 18 Mar 2007 18:45:44 +0000]
[PATCH] tty: Fix two reported pid leaks

These leaks were reported by: Catalin Marinas <catalin.marians@gmail.com>
and I have been able to very by inspection they are possible.

When converting tty_io.c to store pids as struct pid pointers instead
of pid_t values it appears I overlooked two places where we stop using
the pid value.  The very obvious one is in do_tty_hangup, and the one
the less obvious one in __proc_set_tty.

When looking into the code __proc_set_tty only has pids that need to
be put because of failures of other parts of the code to properly
perform hangup processing.   Fixing the leak here in __proc_set_tty
is easy and obviously correct so I am doing that first.

Fixing the places that should be performing hangup processing is much
less obviously correct.  So those I'm aiming those patches at -mm.
for now, so the can age a while before they are merged.

Thomas Gleixner [Sun, 18 Mar 2007 09:26:13 +0000]
[PATCH] i386: trust the PM-Timer calibration of the local APIC timer

When PM-Timer is available for local APIC timer calibration we can skip the
verification of the calibrated time value.  The resulting error is quite
small on a bunch of evaluated platforms and is less harming than the
observed false positives.

We need to keep the verification on systems, which have no PM-Timer to
avoid bogus local APIC timer calibrations in the range of factor 2-10,
which can be observed when swicthing off the PM-timer support in the kernel
configuration.

The wrong calibration values are probably caused by SMM code trying to
emulate a PS/2 keyboard from a (maybe connected or not) USB keyboard.  This
prohibits the accurate delivery of PIT interrupts, which are used to
calibrate the local APIC timer.  Unfortunately we have no way to disable
this BIOS misfeature in the early boot process.

Add also the dropped cpu_relax() back to the wait loops.

KVM: MMU: Fix host memory corruption on i386 with >= 4GB ram

PAGE_MASK is an unsigned long, so using it to mask physical addresses on
i386 (which are 64-bit wide) leads to truncation.  This can result in
page->private of unrelated memory pages being modified, with disasterous
results.

Fix by not using PAGE_MASK for physical addresses; instead calculate

KVM: MMU: Fix guest writes to nonpae pde

KVM shadow page tables are always in pae mode, regardless of the guest
setting.  This means that a guest pde (mapping 4MB of memory) is mapped
to two shadow pdes (mapping 2MB each).

When the guest writes to a pte or pde, we intercept the write and emulate it.
We also remove any shadowed mappings corresponding to the write.  Since the
mmu did not account for the doubling in the number of pdes, it removed the
wrong entry, resulting in a mismatch between shadow page tables and guest
page tables, followed shortly by guest memory corruption.

This patch fixes the problem by detecting the special case of writing to
a non-pae pde and adjusting the address and number of shadow pdes zapped
accordingly.

All modern distributions have been setting these options to "y" for ages.
(additionally "n" cases have been obsoleted for few years).  Therefore use
DMA by default and remove CONFIG_IDEDMA_{ICS,PCI}_AUTO (also remove no longer
needed CONFIG_IDEDMA_AUTO).  This fixes DMA support for rare configurations
where CONFIG_IDEDMA_{ICS,PCI}_AUTO was set to "n" but "hdparm -d 1" was used
to enable DMA support and which were forced to PIO mode by "ide: don't allow

ide: don't allow DMA to be enabled if CONFIG_IDEDMA_{ICS,PCI}_AUTO=n

For CONFIG_IDEDMA_{ICS,PCI}_AUTO=n and/or "ide=nodma" option the host/device
are not programmed for DMA and it is also explicitly disabled by ide_set_dma()
(->ide_dma_check returns "-1").  However the code responsible for manually
enabling DMA ("hdparm -d 1") has a bug which results in DMA being erroneously
enabled - ide_set_dma() incorrectly passes "0" return value to set_using_dma().
This may work if BIOS/firmware configured the host/device for DMA and chipset
allows independent configuration of DMA/PIO modes but won't work after suspend
and is generally unsafe on many chipsets (possibly including data corruption
if the same registers are used for DMA/PIO timings).

This patch fixes kernel bugzilla bug #8169 (piix host driver fixes for
setting PIO mode exposed the problem described above).  The side-effect of
the fix is that some rare configuration may be forced to PIO mode when DMA
mode was previously used - this is addressed by the next patch which removes
CONFIG_IDEDMA_{PCI,ICS}_AUTO config option completely.

Thanks goes out to Patrick Horn for reporting the issue, narrowing it down
to the specific commit and testing the fix.  Also thanks to Sergei Shtylyov
for help in debugging the problem.

14 years agocmd64x: fix recovery time calculation (take 3)
Sergei Shtylyov [Sat, 17 Mar 2007 20:57:24 +0000]
cmd64x: fix recovery time calculation (take 3)

The driver wrongly takes the address setup time into account when calculating
the PIO recovery time -- this leads to slight overclocking of the PIO modes 0
and 1 (so, the prayers failed to help, as usual :-).  Rework the code to be
calculating recovery clock count as a difference between the total cycle count
and the active count (we don't need to calculate the recovery time itself since
it's not specified for the PIO modes 0 to 2, and for modes 3 and 4 this formula
gives enough recovery time anyway in the chip's supported PCI frequency range).

This patch has been inspired by reading the datasheets and looking at what the
libata driver does; it has been compile-tested only (as usual :-) but anyway,
the new code gives the same or longer recovery times than the old one...

14 years ago[PATCH] clockevents: Fix suspend/resume to disk hangs
Thomas Gleixner [Fri, 16 Mar 2007 23:25:52 +0000]
[PATCH] clockevents: Fix suspend/resume to disk hangs

I finally found a dual core box, which survives suspend/resume without
crashing in the middle of nowhere. Sigh, I never figured out from the
code and the bug reports what's going on.

The observed hangs are caused by a stale state transition of the clock
event devices, which keeps the RCU synchronization away from completion,
when the non boot CPU is brought back up.

The suspend/resume in oneshot mode needs the similar care as the
periodic mode during suspend to RAM. My assumption that the state
transitions during the different shutdown/bringups of s2disk would go
through the periodic boot phase and then switch over to highres resp.
nohz mode were simply wrong.

Add the appropriate suspend / resume handling for the non periodic
modes.

14 years ago[PATCH] fix process crash caused by randomisation and 64k pages
James Bottomley [Fri, 16 Mar 2007 21:38:35 +0000]
[PATCH] fix process crash caused by randomisation and 64k pages

This bug was seen on ppc64, but it could have occurred on any
architecture with a page size of 64k or above.  The problem is that in
fs/binfmt_elf.c:randomize_stack_top() randomizes the stack to within
0x7ff pages.  On 4k page machines, this is 8MB; on 64k page boxes, this
is 128MB.

The problem is that the new binary layout (selected in
arch_pick_mmap_layout) places the mapping segment 128MB or the stack
rlimit away from the top of the process memory, whichever is larger.  If
you chose an rlimit of less than 128MB (most defaults are in the 8Mb
range) then you can end up having your entire stack randomized away.

The fix is to make randomize_stack_top() only steal at most 8MB, which this
patch does.  However, I have to point out that even with this, your stack
rlimit might not be exactly what you get if it's > 128MB, because you're
still losing the random offset of up to 8MB.

The true fix should be to leave an explicit gap for the randomization plus
a buffer when determining mmap_base, but that would involve fixing all the
architectures.

Michael Halcrow [Fri, 16 Mar 2007 21:38:22 +0000]
[PATCH] eCryptfs: fix possible NULL ptr deref in ecryptfs_d_release()

ecryptfs_d_release() first dereferences a pointer (via
ecryptfs_dentry_to_lower()) and then afterwards checks to see if the
pointer it just dereferenced is NULL (via ecryptfs_dentry_to_private()).

This patch moves all of the work done on the dereferenced pointer inside a
block governed by the condition that the pointer is non-NULL.

[PATCH] hrtimer: prevent overrun DoS in hrtimer_forward()

hrtimer_forward() does not check for the possible overflow of
timer->expires.  This can happen on 64 bit machines with large interval
values and results currently in an endless loop in the softirq because the
expiry value becomes negative and therefor the timer is expired all the

Check for this condition and set the expiry value to the max.  expiry time
in the future.  The fix should be applied to stable kernel series as well.

[PATCH] gpio_direction_output() needs an initial value

It's been pointed out that output GPIOs should have an initial value, to
avoid signal glitching ...  among other things, it can be some time before
a driver is ready.  This patch corrects that oversight, fixing

 - documentation
 - platforms supporting the GPIO interface
 - users of that call (just one for now, others are pending)

There's only one user of this call for now since most platforms are still
using non-generic GPIO setup code, which in most cases already couples the
initial value with its "set output mode" request.

Note that most platforms are clear about the hardware letting the output
value be set before the pin direction is changed, but the s3c241x docs are
vague on that topic ...  so those chips might not avoid the glitches.

[PATCH] spi: destroy workqueue after spi_unregister_master

Fix a bug in the cleanup of an spi_bitbang bus.

The workqueue associated with the bus was destroyed before the call to
spi_unregister_master.  That meant that spi devices on that bus would be
unable to do IO in their remove method.  The shutdown flag should have been
able to prevent a segfault, but was never getting set.  By waiting to
destroy the workqueue until after the master is unregistered, devices are
able to do IO in their remove methods.  An added benefit is that neither
the shutdown flag nor a wait for the queue of messages to empty is needed.

14 years ago[PATCH] dio: invalidate clean pages before dio write
Zach Brown [Fri, 16 Mar 2007 21:38:11 +0000]
[PATCH] dio: invalidate clean pages before dio write

This patch fixes a user-triggerable oops that was reported by Leonid
Ananiev as archived at http://lkml.org/lkml/2007/2/8/337.

dio writes invalidate clean pages that intersect the written region so that
subsequent buffered reads go to disk to read the new data.  If this fails
the interface tries to tell the caller that the cache is inconsistent by
returning EIO.

Before this patch we had the problem where this invalidation failure would
clobber -EIOCBQUEUED as it made its way from fs/direct-io.c to fs/aio.c.
Both fs/aio.c and bio completion call aio_complete() and we reference freed
memory, usually oopsing.

This patch addresses this problem by invalidating before the write so that
we can cleanly return -EIO before ->direct_IO() has had a chance to return
-EIOCBQUEUED.

There is a compromise here.  During the dio write we can fault in mmap()ed
pages which intersect the written range with get_user_pages() if the user
provided them for the source buffer.  This is a crazy thing to do, but we
can make it mostly work in most cases by trying the invalidation again.
The compromise is that we won't return an error if this second invalidation
fails if it's an AIO write and we have -EIOCBQUEUED.

This was tested by having two processes race performing large O_DIRECT and
buffered ordered writes.  Within minutes ext3 would see a race between
ext3_releasepage() and jbd holding a reference on ordered data buffers and
would cause invalidation to fail, panicing the box.  The test can be found
in the 'aio_dio_bugs' test group in test.kernel.org/autotest.  After this
patch the test passes.

[PATCH] ufs: zeroize the rest of block in truncate

This patch fix behaviour in such test scenario:

  write(fd, buf, sizeof(buf))
  truncate(BIG_OFFSET)
  truncate(BIG_OFFSET + sizeof(buf))
  read(fd, buf...)

Because of if file big enough(BIG_OFFSET) we start allocate space by block,
ordinary block size > page size, so we should zeroize the rest of block in
truncate(except last framgnet, about which VFS should care), to not get
garbage, when we extend file.

Also patch corrects conversion from pointer to block to physical block number,
this helps in case of not common used UFS types.

[SPARC64]: Get DEBUG_PAGEALLOC working again.

We have to make sure to use base-pagesize TLB entries even during the
early transition period where we need TLB miss handling but don't have
the kernel page tables setup yet for the linear region.

Also, it is necessary therefore to not use the 4MB TSB for these
translations, and instead use the normal kernel TSB.  This allows us
to also get rid of the 4MB tsb for debug builds which shrinks the

[IPV6]: ipv6_fl_socklist is inadvertently shared.

The ipv6_fl_socklist from listening socket is inadvertently shared
with new socket created for connection.  This leads to a variety of
interesting, but fatal, bugs. For example, removing one of the
sockets may lead to the other socket's encountering a page fault
when the now freed list is referenced.

The fix is to not share the flow label list with the new socket.

This patch (as869) reinstates the mutual exclusion between sysfs
attribute method calls and attribute unregistration.  The
previously-reported deadlocks have been fixed, and this exclusion is
by far the simplest way to avoid races during driver unbinding.

The check for orphaned read-buffers has been moved down slightly, so
that the remainder of a partially-read buffer will still be available
to userspace even after the attribute has been unregistered.
