11 years agox86: Use -maccumulate-outgoing-args for sane mcount prologues
Thomas Gleixner [Sat, 28 Nov 2009 14:03:03 +0000]
x86: Use -maccumulate-outgoing-args for sane mcount prologues

commit 746357d (x86: Prevent GCC 4.4.x (pentium-mmx et al) function
prologue wreckage) uses -mtune=generic to work around the function
prologue problem with mcount on -march=pentium-mmx and others.

Jakub pointed out that we can use -maccumulate-outgoing-args instead
which is selected by -mtune=generic and prevents the problem without
losing the -march specific optimizations.

11 years agox86: Prevent GCC 4.4.x (pentium-mmx et al) function prologue wreckage
Thomas Gleixner [Fri, 20 Nov 2009 11:01:43 +0000]
x86: Prevent GCC 4.4.x (pentium-mmx et al) function prologue wreckage

When the kernel is compiled with -pg for tracing GCC 4.4.x inserts
stack alignment of a function _before_ the mcount prologue if the
-march=pentium-mmx is set and -mtune=generic is not set. This breaks
the assumption of the function graph tracer which expects that the
mcount prologue

       push %ebp
       mov  %esp, %ebp

is the first stack operation in a function because it needs to modify
the function return address on the stack to trap into the tracer
before returning to the real caller.

The generated code is:

        push   %edi
        lea    0x8(%esp),%edi
        and    $0xfffffff0,%esp
        pushl  -0x4(%edi)
        push   %ebp
        mov    %esp,%ebp

so the tracer modifies the copy of the return address which is stored
after the stack alignment and therefor does not trap the return which
in turn breaks the call chain logic of the tracer and leads to a
kernel panic.

Aside of the fact that the generated code is horrible for no good
reason other -march -mtune options generate the expected:

        push   %ebp
        mov    %esp,%ebp
        and    $0xfffffff0,%esp

which does the same and keeps everything intact.

After some experimenting we found out that this problem is restricted
to gcc4.4.x and to the following -march settings:

i586, pentium, pentium-mmx, k6, k6-2, k6-3, winchip-c6, winchip2, c3,

By adding -mtune=generic the code generator produces always the
expected code.

So forcing -mtune=generic when CONFIG_FUNCTION_GRAPH_TRACER=y is not
pretty, but at the moment the only way to prevent that the kernel
trips over gcc-shrooms induced code madness.

Most distro kernels have CONFIG_X86_GENERIC=y anyway which forces
-mtune=generic as well so it will not impact those.

 quirk_amd_nb_node: current numa_node = 0x0, would set to val & 7 = 0x3

I.e. the issue appears to be that the HW has set val to a valid
value, however, the system is only configured for a single
node -- 0, the others are offline.

Check to see if the node is actually online before setting
the numa node for an AMD northbridge in quirk_amd_nb_node().

11 years agox86, UV: Fix information in __uv_hub_info structure
Robin Holt [Thu, 15 Oct 2009 22:40:00 +0000]
x86, UV: Fix information in __uv_hub_info structure

A few parts of the uv_hub_info structure are initialized

 - n_val is being loaded with m_val.
 - gpa_mask is initialized with a bytes instead of an unsigned long.
 - Handle the case where none of the alias registers are used.

Lastly I converted the bau over to using the uv_hub_info->m_val
which is the correct value.

Without this patch, booting a large configuration hits a
problem where the upper bits of the gnode affect the pnode
and the bau will not operate.

11 years agoKEYS: get_instantiation_keyring() should inc the keyring refcount in all cases
David Howells [Thu, 15 Oct 2009 09:14:35 +0000]
KEYS: get_instantiation_keyring() should inc the keyring refcount in all cases

The destination keyring specified to request_key() and co. is made available to
the process that instantiates the key (the slave process started by
/sbin/request-key typically).  This is passed in the request_key_auth struct as
the dest_keyring member.

keyctl_instantiate_key and keyctl_negate_key() call get_instantiation_keyring()
to get the keyring to attach the newly constructed key to at the end of
instantiation.  This may be given a specific keyring into which a link will be
made later, or it may be asked to find the keyring passed to request_key().  In
the former case, it returns a keyring with the refcount incremented by
lookup_user_key(); in the latter case, it returns the keyring from the
request_key_auth struct - and does _not_ increment the refcount.

The latter case will eventually result in an oops when the keyring prematurely
runs out of references and gets destroyed.  The effect may take some time to
show up as the key is destroyed lazily.

To fix this, the keyring returned by get_instantiation_keyring() must always
have its refcount incremented, no matter where it comes from.

This can be tested by setting /etc/request-key.conf to:

#====== ======= =============== =============== ===============================
create  * test:* * |/bin/false %u %g %d %{user:_display}
negate * * * /bin/keyctl negate %k 10 @u

and then doing:

keyctl add user _display aaaaaaaa @u
        while keyctl request2 user test:x test:x @u &&
        keyctl list @u;
                keyctl request2 user test:x test:x @u;
                sleep 31;
                keyctl list @u;

which will oops eventually.  Changing the negate line to have @u rather than
%S at the end is important as that forces the latter case by passing a special
keyring ID rather than an actual keyring ID.

OMAP: Fix race condition with autodeps

There is a possible race condition in clockdomain
code handling hw supported idle transitions.

When multiple autodeps dependencies are being added
or removed, a transition of still remaining dependent
powerdomain can result in false readings of the
state counter. This is especially fatal for off mode
state counter, as it could result in a driver not

Fixed by disabling hw supported state transitions
when autodeps are being changed.

11 years agosysfs: Allow sysfs_notify_dirent to be called from interrupt context.
Neil Brown [Tue, 15 Sep 2009 23:05:51 +0000]
sysfs: Allow sysfs_notify_dirent to be called from interrupt context.

sysfs_notify_dirent is a simple atomic operation that can be used to
alert user-space that new data can be read from a sysfs attribute.

Unfortunately it cannot currently be called from non-process context
because of its use of spin_lock which is sometimes taken with
interrupts enabled.

So change all lockers of sysfs_open_dirent_lock to disable interrupts,
thus making sysfs_notify_dirent safe to be called from non-process
context (as drivers/md does in md_safemode_timeout).

sysfs_get_open_dirent is (documented as being) only called from
process context, so it uses spin_lock_irq.  Other places
use spin_lock_irqsave.

The usage for sysfs_notify_dirent in md_safemode_timeout was
introduced in 2.6.28, so this patch is suitable for that and more
recent kernels.

11 years agotty: use the new 'flush_delayed_work()' helper to do ldisc flush
Linus Torvalds [Wed, 14 Oct 2009 16:20:41 +0000]
tty: use the new 'flush_delayed_work()' helper to do ldisc flush

This way all flush_to_ldisc work is always done through the workqueues,
and we thus have a single point of serialization.  It also means that we
can avoid calling flush_to_ldisc() entirely if there was no delayed work

[ Side note: using workqueues and keventd as the single way to enter
  flush_to_ldisc() still doesn't absolutely guarantee that we can't have
  concurrency: keventd is multithreaded and has a thread per CPU, and
  while the WORK_STRUCT_PENDING bit guarantees a single work only being
  on the pending list once, the work might be both pending and _running_
  at the same time. Workqueues are not simple. ]

This was also confirmed to fix bugzilla #14388, even without the earlier
locking fix and cleanup (commit c8e331419: "tty: Make flush_to_ldisc()
locking more robust").  So both commits fix the same bug differently,
and either would have worked on its own.  But I'm committing them both
since they are cleanups independent of each other.

11 years agotty: Make flush_to_ldisc() locking more robust
Linus Torvalds [Wed, 14 Oct 2009 15:59:49 +0000]
tty: Make flush_to_ldisc() locking more robust

The locking logic in this function is extremely subtle, and it broke
when we started doing potentially concurrent 'flush_to_ldisc()' calls in
commit e043e42bdb66885b3ac10d27a01ccb9972e2b0a3 ("pty: avoid forcing
'low_latency' tty flag").

The code in flush_to_ldisc() used to set 'tty->buf.head' to NULL, with
the intention that this would then cause any other concurrent calls to
not do anything (locking note: we have to drop the buf.lock over the
call to ->receive_buf that can block, which is why we can have
concurrency here at all in the first place).

It also used to set the TTY_FLUSHING bit, which would then cause any
concurrent 'tty_buffer_flush()' to not free all the tty buffers and
clear 'tty->buf.tail'.  And with 'buf.head' being NULL, and 'buf.tail'
being non-NULL, new data would never touch 'buf.head'.

Does that sound a bit too subtle? It was.  If another concurrent call to
'flush_to_ldisc()' were to come in, the NULL buf.head would indeed cause
it to not process the buffer list, but it would still clear TTY_FLUSHING
afterwards, making the buffer protection against 'tty_buffer_flush()' no
longer work.

So this clears it all up.  We depend purely on TTY_FLUSHING for handling
re-entrancy, and stop playing games with the buffer list entirely.  In
fact, the buffer list handling is now robust enough that we could
probably stop doing the whole "protect against 'tty_buffer_flush()'"
thing entirely.

However, Alan also points out that we would probably be better off
simplifying the locking even further, and just take the tty ldisc_mutex
around all the buffer flushing calls.  That seems like a good idea, but
in the meantime this is a conceptually minimal fix (with the patch
itself being bigger than required just to clean the code up and make it

This fixes keyboard trouble under X:

usb-storage: Workaround devices with bogus sense size

Some devices, such as Huawei E169, advertise more than the standard
amount of sense data, causing us to set US_FL_SANE_SENSE, assuming
they support it. However, they subsequently fail the request sense
with that size.

This works around it generically. When a sense request fails due to
a device returning an error, US_FL_SANE_SENSE was set, and that sense
request used a larger sense size, we retry with a smaller size before
giving up.

11 years agofirewire: sbp2: provide fallback if mgt_ORB_timeout is missing
Stefan Richter [Wed, 7 Oct 2009 22:39:31 +0000]
firewire: sbp2: provide fallback if mgt_ORB_timeout is missing

The Unit_Characteristics entry of an SBP-2 unit directory is not
mandatory as far as I can tell.  If it is missing, we would probably
fail to log in into the target because firewire-sbp2 would not wait for
status after it sent the login request.

The fix moves the cleanup of tgt->mgt_orb_timeout into a place where it
is executed exactly once before login, rather than 0..n times depending
on the target's config ROM.  With targets with one or more
Unit_Characteristics entries, the result is the same as before.

The I2C-1 bus frequency on RX-51 should be 2.2 MHz. The speed is limited
by TWL5030/GAIA; a higher speed could lead to errors on the interface. The
maximum speed depends on the system clock for GAIA: 2.2 MHz (if 19.2 MHz),
2.4 MHz (26 MHz) or 2.9 MHz (38.4 MHz).
