OK, I've fixed the wrapping and removed the CONFIG_ARM restriction.  I've also did my
best to modify the C style to conform to the comments.

I noticed that the patch is getting ignored by majordomo due to its size >100K.

Andi Kleen [Thu, 20 Apr 2006 00:36:45 +0000 (02:36 +0200)]
[PATCH] i386/x86-64: Fix x87 information leak between processes

AMD K7/K8 CPUs only save/restore the FOP/FIP/FDP x87 registers in FXSAVE
when an exception is pending.  This means the value leak through
context switches and allow processes to observe some x87 instruction
state of other processes.

This was actually documented by AMD, but nobody recognized it as
being different from Intel before.

The fix first adds an optimization: instead of unconditionally
calling FNCLEX after each FXSAVE test if ES is pending and skip
it when not needed. Then do a x87 load from a kernel variable to
clear FOP/FIP/FDP.

This means other processes always will only see a constant value
defined by the kernel in their FP state.

I took some pain to make sure to chose a variable that's already
in L1 during context switch to make the overhead of this low.

Also alternative() is used to patch away the new code on CPUs
who don't need it.

Patch for both i386/x86-64.

The problem was discovered originally by Jan Beulich. Richard
Brunner provided the basic code for the workarounds, with contribution
from Jan.

This is CVE-2006-1056

Hirokazu Takata [Wed, 19 Apr 2006 05:21:20 +0000 (22:21 -0700)]
[PATCH] m32r: Fix pt_regs for !COFNIG_ISA_DSP_LEVEL2 target

This modification is required to fix debugging function for m32r targets
with !CONFIG_ISA_DSP_LEVEL2, by unifying 'struct pt_regs' and 'struct
sigcontext' size for all M32R ISA.

Some m32r processor core with !CONFIG_ISA_DSP_LEVEL2 configuration has only
single accumulator a0 (ex.  VDEC2 core, M32102 core, etc.), the others with
CONFIG_ISA_DSP_LEVEL2 has two accumulators, a0 and a1.

This means there are two variations of thread context.  So far, we reduced
and changed stackframe size at a syscall for their context size.  However,
this causes a problem that a GDB for processors with CONFIG_ISA_DSP_LEVEL2
cannot be used for processors with !CONFIG_ISA_DSP_LEVEL2.

From the viewpoint of GDB support, we should reduce such variation of
stackframe size for simplicity.

In this patch, dummy members are added to 'struct pt_regs' and 'struct
sigcontext' to adjust their size for !CONFIG_ISA_DSP_LEVEL2.

This modification is also a one step for a GDB update in future.
Currently, on the m32r, GDB can access process's context by using ptrace
functions in a simple way of register by register access.  By unifying
stackframe size, we have a possibility to make use of ptrace functions of
not only a single register access but also block register access,
PTRACE_{GETREGS,PUTREGS}.

However, for this purpose, we might have to modify stackframe structure
some more; for example, PSW (processor status word) register should be
pre-processed before pushing to stack at a syscall, and so on.  In this
case, we must update carefully both kernel and GDB at a time...

[PATCH] oom-kill: mm locking fix

Dave Peterson <dsp@llnl.gov> points out that badness() is playing with
mm_structs without taking a reference on them.

mmput() can sleep, so taking a reference here (inside tasklist_lock) is
hard.  Fix it up via task_lock() instead.

[PATCH] swsusp: prevent possible image corruption on resume

The function free_pagedir() used by swsusp for freeing its internal data
structures clears the PG_nosave and PG_nosave_free flags for each page
being freed.

However, during resume PG_nosave_free set means that the page in
question is "unsafe" (ie.  it will be overwritten in the process of
restoring the saved system state from the image), so it should not be
used for the image data.

Therefore free_pagedir() should not clear PG_nosave_free if it's called
during resume (otherwise "unsafe" pages freed by it may be used for
storing the image data and the data may get corrupted later on).

for_each_cpu() actually iterates across all possible CPUs.  We've had

should have been iterating across only online or present CPUs.  This is
inefficient and possibly buggy.

We're renaming for_each_cpu() to for_each_possible_cpu() to avoid this
