Jay Vosburgh [Tue, 6 Nov 2007 21:33:29 +0000]
bonding: don't validate address at device open

The standard validate_addr handler refuses to accept the all zeroes address
as valid.  However, it's common historical practice for the bonding
master to be configured up prior to having any slaves, at which time the
master will have a MAC address of all zeroes.

Resolved by setting the dev->validate_addr to NULL.  The master still can't
end up with an invalid address, as the set_mac_address function tests
for validity.

13 years agox86 - 32-bit ptrace emulation mishandles 6th arg
Chuck Ebbert [Wed, 7 Nov 2007 15:48:39 +0000]
x86 - 32-bit ptrace emulation mishandles 6th arg

[ jdike - Pushing Chuck's patch - see
http://lkml.org/lkml/2005/9/16/261 for some history and a test
program.  UML is also broken without this patch - its processes get
SIGBUS from the corrupt 6th argument to mmap being interpretted as a
file offset ]

When the 32-bit vDSO is used to make a system call, the %ebp register for
the 6th syscall arg has to be loaded from the user stack (where it's pushed
by the vDSO user code).  The native i386 kernel always does this before
stopping for syscall tracing, so %ebp can be seen and modified via ptrace
to access the 6th syscall argument.  The x86-64 kernel fails to do this,
presenting the stack address to ptrace instead.  This makes the %rbp value
seen by 64-bit ptrace of a 32-bit process, and the %ebp value seen by a
32-bit caller of ptrace, both differ from the native i386 behavior.

This patch fixes the problem by putting the word loaded from the user stack
into %rbp before calling syscall_trace_enter, and reloading the 6th syscall
argument from there afterwards (so ptrace can change it).  This makes the
behavior match that of i386 kernels.

Roland McGrath [Tue, 6 Nov 2007 23:30:38 +0000]
x86_64: ia32 ptrace THREAD_AREA fix

The addr argument to PTRACE_GET_THREAD_AREA and PTRACE_SET_THREAD_AREA is
not a magic constant.  It's derived from the segment register values being
used, which are computed originally from the index used with set_thread_area.
The value does not need to match what a native i386 kernel would accept.
It needs to match the segment selectors that can actually be in use in this
32-bit process.  The 64-bit ptrace support for PTRACE_GET_THREAD_AREA
(normally used only on 32-bit processes) is correct, but the 32-bit emulation
of ptrace is broken.

13 years ago[FUTEX] Fix address computation in compat code.
David Miller [Wed, 7 Nov 2007 05:13:56 +0000]
[FUTEX] Fix address computation in compat code.

compat_exit_robust_list() computes a pointer to the
futex entry in userspace as follows:

(void __user *)entry + futex_offset

'entry' is a 'struct robust_list __user *', and
'futex_offset' is a 'compat_long_t' (typically a 's32').

Things explode if the 32-bit sign bit is set in futex_offset.

Type promotion sign extends futex_offset to a 64-bit value before
adding it to 'entry'.

This triggered a problem on sparc64 running 32-bit applications which
would lock up a cpu looping forever in the fault handling for the
userspace load in handle_futex_death().

Compat userspace runs with address masking (wherein the cpu zeros out
the top 32-bits of every effective address given to a memory operation
instruction) so the sparc64 fault handler accounts for this by
zero'ing out the top 32-bits of the fault address too.

Since the kernel properly uses the compat_uptr interfaces, kernel side
accesses to compat userspace work too since they will only use
addresses with the top 32-bit clear.

Because of this compat futex layer bug we get into the following loop
when executing the get_user() load near the top of handle_futex_death():

1) load from address '0xfffffffff7f16bd8', FAULT
2) fault handler clears upper 32-bits, processes fault
   for address '0xf7f16bd8' which succeeds
3) goto #1

I want to thank Bernd Zeimetz, Josip Rodin, and Fabio Massimo Di Nitto
for their tireless efforts helping me track down this bug.

IRQs are usually unsigned in the kernel. The "no IRQ" case is defined to be

13 years agosched: fix copy_namespace() <-> sched_fork() dependency in do_fork
Srivatsa Vaddagiri [Fri, 9 Nov 2007 21:39:39 +0000]
sched: fix copy_namespace() <-> sched_fork() dependency in do_fork

Sukadev Bhattiprolu reported a kernel crash with control groups.
There are couple of problems discovered by Suka's test:

- The test requires the cgroup filesystem to be mounted with
  atleast the cpu and ns options (i.e both namespace and cpu
  controllers are active in the same hierarchy).

# mkdir /dev/cpuctl
# mount -t cgroup -ocpu,ns none cpuctl
(or simply)
# mount -t cgroup none cpuctl -> Will activate all controllers
 in same hierarchy.

- The test invokes clone() with CLONE_NEWNS set. This causes a a new child
  to be created, also a new group (do_fork->copy_namespaces->ns_cgroup_clone->
  cgroup_clone) and the child is attached to the new group (cgroup_clone->
  attach_task->sched_move_task). At this point in time, the child's scheduler
  related fields are uninitialized (including its on_rq field, which it has
  inherited from parent). As a result sched_move_task thinks its on
  runqueue, when it isn't.

  As a solution to this problem, I moved sched_fork() call, which
  initializes scheduler related fields on a new task, before
  copy_namespaces(). I am not sure though whether moving up will
  cause other side-effects. Do you see any issue?

- The second problem exposed by this test is that task_new_fair()
  assumes that parent and child will be part of the same group (which
  needn't be as this test shows). As a result, cfs_rq->curr can be NULL
  for the child.

  The solution is to test for curr pointer being NULL in
  task_new_fair().

With the patch below, I could run ns_exec() fine w/o a crash.

Paul Mackerras [Fri, 9 Nov 2007 21:39:38 +0000]
sched: restore deterministic CPU accounting on powerpc

Since powerpc started using CONFIG_GENERIC_CLOCKEVENTS, the
deterministic CPU accounting (CONFIG_VIRT_CPU_ACCOUNTING) has been
broken on powerpc, because we end up counting user time twice: once in
timer_interrupt() and once in update_process_times().

This fixes the problem by pulling the code in update_process_times
that updates utime and stime into a separate function called
account_process_tick.  If CONFIG_VIRT_CPU_ACCOUNTING is not defined,
there is a version of account_process_tick in kernel/timer.c that
simply accounts a whole tick to either utime or stime as before.  If
CONFIG_VIRT_CPU_ACCOUNTING is defined, then arch code gets to
implement account_process_tick.

This also lets us simplify the s390 code a bit; it means that the s390
timer interrupt can now call update_process_times even when
CONFIG_VIRT_CPU_ACCOUNTING is turned on, and can just implement a
suitable account_process_tick().

account_process_tick() now takes the task_struct * as an argument.
Tested both with and without CONFIG_VIRT_CPU_ACCOUNTING.

One-shot timer mode on PXA has various bugs which prevent kernels
build with NO_HZ enabled booting.  They end up spinning on a
permanently asserted timer interrupt because we don't properly
clear it down - clearing the OIER bit does not stop the pending
interrupt status.  Fix this in the set_mode handler as well.

Moreover, the code which sets the next expiry point may race with
the hardware, and we might not set the match register sufficiently
in the future.  If we encounter that situation, return -ETIME so
the generic time code retries.
