2011-05-09atl1c: Fix work event interrupt/task racesTim Gardner
commit cb771838715b1c470bc5735bdae709b33b18e0ad upstream. The mechanism used to initiate work events from the interrupt handler has a classic read/modify/write race between the interrupt handler that sets the condition, and the worker task that reads and clears the condition. Close these races by using atomic bit fields. Cc: Jie Yang <jie.yang@atheros.com> Signed-off-by: Tim Gardner <tim.gardner@canonical.com> Signed-off-by: David S.

2011-05-09workqueue: fix deadlock in worker_maybe_bind_and_lock()Tejun Heo
commit 5035b20fa5cd146b66f5f89619c20a4177fb736d upstream. If a rescuer and stop_machine() bringing down a CPU race with each other, they may deadlock on non-preemptive kernel. The CPU won't accept a new task, so the rescuer can't migrate to the target CPU, while stop_machine() can't proceed because the rescuer is holding one of the CPU retrying migration. GCWQ_DISASSOCIATED is never cleared and worker_maybe_bind_and_lock() retries indefinitely. This problem can be reproduced semi reliably while the system is entering suspend. http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel/1122051 A lot of kudos to Thilo-Alexander for reporting this tricky issue and painstaking testing. stable: This affects all kernels with cmwq, so all kernels since and including v2.6.36 need this fix.

2011-05-09put stricter guards on queue dead checksJames Bottomley
commit 86cbfb5607d4b81b1a993ff689bbd2addd5d3a9b upstream. SCSI uses request_queue->queuedata == NULL as a signal that the queue is dying. We set this state in the sdev release function. However, this allows a small window where we release the last reference but haven't quite got to this stage yet and so something will try to take a reference in scsi_request_fn and oops. It's very rare, but we had a report here, so we're pushing this as a bug fix The actual fix is to set request_queue->queuedata to NULL in scsi_remove_device() before we drop the reference. This causes correct automatic rejects from scsi_request_fn as people who hold additional references try to submit work and prevents anything from getting a new reference to the sdev that way.

commit a1f74ae82d133ebb2aabb19d181944b4e83e9960 upstream. At two points in handling device ioctls via /dev/mpt2ctl, user-supplied length values are used to copy data from userspace into heap buffers without bounds checking, allowing controllable heap corruption and subsequently privilege escalation. Additionally, user-supplied values are used to determine the size of a copy_to_user() as well as the offset into the buffer to be read, with no bounds checking, allowing users to read arbitrary kernel memory.

2011-05-09pmcraid: reject negative request sizeDan Rosenberg
commit 5f6279da3760ce48f478f2856aacebe0c59a39f3 upstream. There's a code path in pmcraid that can be reached via device ioctl that causes all sorts of ugliness, including heap corruption or triggering the OOM killer due to consecutive allocation of large numbers of pages. Not especially relevant from a security perspective, since users must have CAP_SYS_ADMIN to open the character device. First, the user can call pmcraid_chr_ioctl() with a type PMCRAID_PASSTHROUGH_IOCTL. A pmcraid_passthrough_ioctl_buffer is copied in, and the request_size variable is set to buffer->ioarcb.data_transfer_length, which is an arbitrary 32-bit signed value provided by the user. If a negative value is provided here, bad things can happen. For example, pmcraid_build_passthrough_ioadls() is called with this request_size, which immediately calls pmcraid_alloc_sglist() with a negative size. The resulting math on allocating a scatter list can result in an overflow in the kzalloc() call (if num_elem is 0, the sglist will be smaller than expected), or if num_elem is unexpectedly large the subsequent loop will call alloc_pages() repeatedly, a high number of pages will be allocated and the OOM killer might be invoked. Prevent this value from being negative in pmcraid_ioctl_passthrough().

2011-05-02agp: fix OOM and buffer overflowVasiliy Kulikov
commit b522f02184b413955f3bc952e3776ce41edc6355 upstream. page_count is copied from userspace. agp_allocate_memory() tries to check whether this number is too big, but doesn't take into account the wrap case. Also agp_create_user_memory() doesn't check whether alloc_size is calculated from num_agp_pages variable without overflow. This may lead to allocation of too small buffer with following buffer overflow. Another problem in agp code is not addressed in the patch - kernel memory exhaustion (AGPIOC_RESERVE and AGPIOC_ALLOCATE ioctls). It is not checked whether requested pid is a pid of the caller (no check in agpioc_reserve_wrap()). Each allocation is limited to 16KB, though, there is no per-process limit. This might lead to OOM situation, which is not even solved in case of the caller death by OOM killer - the memory is allocated for another (faked) process.

commit 6d4831c283530a5f2c6bd8172c13efa236eb149d upstream. Azurit reports large increases in system time after 2.6.36 when running Apache. It was bisected down to a892e2d7dcdfa6c76e6 ("vfs: use kmalloc() to allocate fdmem if possible"). That patch caused the vfs to use kmalloc() for very large allocations and this is causing excessive work (and presumably excessive reclaim) within the page allocator.

This patch sets the bit at the time node_present_pages has been set by free_area_init_node. At the time the node is brought online, the node state would have to be done unconditionally since information about present memory has not yet been recorded. If N_NORMAL_MEMORY is not accurate, slub may encounter errors since it uses this nodemask to setup per-cache kmem_cache_node data structures.

2011-05-02mm: thp: fix /dev/zero MAP_PRIVATE and vm_flags cleanupsAndrea Arcangeli
commit 78f11a255749d09025f54d4e2df4fbcb031530e2 upstream. The huge_memory.c THP page fault was allowed to run if vm_ops was null (which would succeed for /dev/zero MAP_PRIVATE, as the f_op->mmap wouldn't setup a special vma->vm_ops and it would fallback to regular anonymous memory) but other THP logics weren't fully activated for vmas with vm_file not NULL (/dev/zero has a not NULL vma->vm_file). So this removes the vm_file checks so that /dev/zero also can safely use THP (the other albeit safer approach to fix this bug would have been to prevent the THP initial page fault to run if vm_file was set). After removing the vm_file checks, this also makes huge_memory.c stricter in khugepaged for the DEBUG_VM=y case. It doesn't replace the vm_file check with a is_pfn_mapping check (but it keeps checking for VM_PFNMAP under VM_BUG_ON) because for a is_cow_mapping() mapping VM_PFNMAP should only be allowed to exist before the first page fault, and in turn when vma->anon_vma is null (so preventing khugepaged registration). So I tend to think the previous comment saying if vm_file was set, VM_PFNMAP might have been set and we could still be registered in khugepaged (despite anon_vma was not NULL to be registered in khugepaged) was too paranoid. The is_linear_pfn_mapping check is also I think superfluous (as described by comment) but under DEBUG_VM it is safe to stay.

2011-05-02mm: check if PTE is already allocated during page faultMel Gorman
commit cc03638df20acbec5d0d0d9e07234aadde9e698d upstream. With transparent hugepage support, handle_mm_fault() has to be careful that a normal PMD has been established before handling a PTE fault. To achieve this, it used __pte_alloc() directly instead of pte_alloc_map as pte_alloc_map is unsafe to run against a huge PMD. pte_offset_map() is called once it is known the PMD is safe. pte_alloc_map() is smart enough to check if a PTE is already present before calling __pte_alloc but this check was lost. As a consequence, PTEs may be allocated unnecessarily and the page table lock taken. Thi useless PTE does get cleaned up but it's a performance hit which is visible in page_test from aim9. This patch simply re-adds the check normally done by pte_alloc_map to check if the PTE needs to be allocated before taking the page table lock. The effect is noticable in page_test from aim9.

2011-05-02virtio: console: Enable call to hvc_remove() on console port removeAmit Shah
commit afa2689e19073cd2e762d0f2c1358fab1ab9f18c upstream. This call was disabled as hot-unplugging one virtconsole port led to another virtconsole port freezing. Upon testing it again, this now works, so enable it. In addition, a bug was found in qemu wherein removing a port of one type caused the guest output from another port to stop working. I doubt it was just this bug that caused it (since disabling the hvc_remove() call did allow other ports to continue working), but since it's all solved now, we're fine with hot-unplugging of virtconsole ports.

2011-05-02set memory ranges in N_NORMAL_MEMORY when onlinedDavid Rientjes
commit d9b41e0b54fd7e164daf1e9c539c1070398aa02e upstream. When a DISCONTIGMEM memory range is brought online as a NUMA node, it also needs to have its bet set in N_NORMAL_MEMORY. This is necessary for generic kernel code that utilizes N_NORMAL_MEMORY as a subset of N_ONLINE for memory savings. These types of hacks can hopefully be removed once DISCONTIGMEM is either removed or abstracted away from CONFIG_NUMA. Fixes a panic in the slub code which only initializes structures for N_NORMAL_MEMORY to save memory: Backtrace: [<000000004021c938>] add_partial+0x28/0x98 [<000000004021faa0>] __slab_free+0x1d0/0x1d8 [<000000004021fd04>] kmem_cache_free+0xc4/0x128 [<000000004033bf9c>] ida_get_new_above+0x21c/0x2c0 [<00000000402a8980>] sysfs_new_dirent+0xd0/0x238 [<00000000402a974c>] create_dir+0x5c/0x168 [<00000000402a9ab0>] sysfs_create_dir+0x98/0x128 [<000000004033d6c4>] kobject_add_internal+0x114/0x258 [<000000004033d9ac>] kobject_add_varg+0x7c/0xa0 [<000000004033df20>] kobject_add+0x50/0x90 [<000000004033dfb4>] kobject_create_and_add+0x54/0xc8 [<00000000407862a0>] cgroup_init+0x138/0x1f0 [<000000004077ce50>] start_kernel+0x5a0/0x840 [<000000004011fa3c>] start_parisc+0xa4/0xb8 [<00000000404bb034>] packet_ioctl+0x16c/0x208 [<000000004049ac30>] ip_mroute_setsockopt+0x260/0xf20 Signed-off-by: David Rientjes <rientjes@google.com> Signed-off-by: James Bottomley <James.Bottomley@suse.de> Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@suse.de>
2011-05-02slub: fix panic with DISCONTIGMEMJames Bottomley
commit 4a5fa3590f09999f6db41bc386bce40848fa9f63 upstream. Slub makes assumptions about page_to_nid() which are violated by DISCONTIGMEM and !NUMA. This violation results in a panic because page_to_nid() can be non-zero for pages in the discontiguous ranges and this leads to a null return by get_node(). The assertion by the maintainer is that DISCONTIGMEM should only be allowed when NUMA is also defined. However, at least six architectures: alpha, ia64, m32r, m68k, mips, parisc violate this. The panic is a regression against slab, so just mark slub broken in the problem configuration to prevent users reporting these panics.

2011-05-02ACPI / PM: Avoid infinite recurrence while registering power resourcesRafael J. Wysocki
commit 7bed50c5edf5cba8dd515a31191cbfb6065ddc85 upstream. There is at least one BIOS with a DSDT containing a power resource object with a _PR0 entry pointing back to that power resource. In consequence, while registering that power resource acpi_bus_get_power_flags() sees that it depends on itself and tries to register it again, which leads to an infinitely deep recurrence. This problem was introduced by commit bf325f9538d8c89312be305b9779e (ACPI / PM: Register power resource devices as soon as they are needed). To fix this problem use the observation that power resources cannot be power manageable and prevent acpi_bus_get_power_flags() from being called for power resource objects.

2011-05-02pfault: fix token handlingHeiko Carstens
commit e35c76cd47c244eaa7a74adaabde4d0a1cadb907 upstream. f6649a7e "[S390] cleanup lowcore access from external interrupts" changed handling of external interrupts. Instead of letting the external interrupt handlers accessing the per cpu lowcore the entry code of the kernel reads already all fields that are necessary and passes them to the handlers. The pfault interrupt handler was incorrectly converted. It tries to dereference a value which used to be a pointer to a lowcore field. After the conversion however it is not anymore the pointer to the field but its content. So instead of a dereference only a cast is needed to get the task pointer that caused the pfault. Fixes a NULL pointer dereference and a subsequent kernel crash: Unable to handle kernel pointer dereference at virtual kernel address (null) Oops: 0004 [#1] SMP Modules linked in: nfsd exportfs nfs lockd fscache nfs_acl auth_rpcgss sunrpc loop qeth_l3 qeth vmur ccwgroup ext3 jbd mbcache dm_mod dasd_eckd_mod dasd_diag_mod dasd_mod CPU: 0 Not tainted 2.6.38-2-s390x #1 Process cron (pid: 1106, task: 000000001f962f78, ksp: 000000001fa0f9d0) Krnl PSW : 0404200180000000 000000000002c03e (pfault_interrupt+0xa2/0x138) R:0 T:1 IO:0 EX:0 Key:0 M:1 W:0 P:0 AS:0 CC:2 PM:0 EA:3 Krnl GPRS: 0000000000000000 0000000000000001 0000000000000000 0000000000000001 000000001f962f78 0000000000518968 0000000090000002 000000001ff03280 0000000000000000 000000000064f000 000000001f962f78 0000000000002603 0000000006002603 0000000000000000 000000001ff7fe68 000000001ff7fe48 Krnl Code: 000000000002c036: 5820d010 l %r2,16(%r13) 000000000002c03a: 1832 lr %r3,%r2 000000000002c03c: 1a31 ar %r3,%r1 >000000000002c03e: ba23d010 cs %r2,%r3,16(%r13) 000000000002c042: a744fffc brc 4,2c03a 000000000002c046: a7290002 lghi %r2,2 000000000002c04a: e320d0000024 stg %r2,0(%r13) 000000000002c050: 07f0 bcr 15,%r0 Call Trace: ([<000000001f962f78>] 0x1f962f78) [<000000000001acda>] do_extint+0xf6/0x138 [<000000000039b6ca>] ext_no_vtime+0x30/0x34 [<000000007d706e04>] 0x7d706e04 Last Breaking-Event-Address: [<0000000000000000>] 0x0 For stable maintainers: the first kernel which contains this bug is 2.6.37.

commit 8c230d9a5b5ec7970139acb7e2d165d7a3fe9f9e upstream. This patch fixes UBIFS mount failure when the debugging support is enabled, we are recovering from a power cut, we were first mounter R/O and we are re-mounting R/W. In this case we should not assume that the amount of free space before we have re-mounted R/W and after are equivalent, because when we have mounted R/O the file-system is in a non-committed state so the amount of free space is slightly smaller, due to the fact that we cannot predict the amount of free space precisely before we commit. This patch fixes the issue by skipping the debugging check in case of recovery.

commit 115dad7a7f42e68840392767323ceb9306dbdb36 upstream. The rx error bit parsing was changed to consider PHY errors and various decryption errors separately. While correct according to the documentation, this is causing spurious decryption error reports in some situations. Fix this by restoring the original order of the checks in those places, where the errors are meant to be mutually exclusive.

2011-05-02UBIFS: fix master node recoveryArtem Bityutskiy
commit 6e0d9fd38b750d678bf9fd07db23582f52fafa55 upstream. This patch fixes the following symptoms: 1. Unmount UBIFS cleanly. 2. Start mounting UBIFS R/W and have a power cut immediately 3. Start mounting UBIFS R/O, this succeeds 4. Try to re-mount UBIFS R/W - this fails immediately or later on, because UBIFS will write the master node to the flash area which has been written before. The analysis of the problem: 1. UBIFS is unmounted cleanly, both copies of the master node are clean. 2. UBIFS is being mounter R/W, starts changing master node copy 1, and a power cut happens. The copy N1 becomes corrupted. 3. UBIFS is being mounted R/O. It notices the copy N1 is corrupted and reads copy N2. Copy N2 is clean. 4. Because of R/O mode, UBIFS cannot recover copy 1. 5. The mount code (ubifs_mount()) sees that the master node is clean, so it decides that no recovery is needed. 6. We are re-mounting R/W. UBIFS believes no recovery is needed and starts updating the master node, but copy N1 is still corrupted and was not recovered! Fix this problem by marking the master node as dirty every time we recover it and we are in R/O mode. This forces further recovery and the UBIFS cleans-up the corruptions and recovers the copy N1 when re-mounting R/W later.

Commit 40aee729b350 ('kconfig: fix default value for choice input') fixed some cases where kconfig would select the wrong option from a choice with a single valid option and thus enter an infinite loop. However, this broke the test for user input of the form 'N?', because when kconfig selects the single valid option the input is zero-length and the test will read the byte before the input buffer. If this happens to contain '?' (as it will in a mips build on Debian unstable today) then kconfig again enters an infinite loop.
