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.

2011-05-02kvm-390: Let kernel exit SIE instruction on workCarsten Otte
commit 9ff4cfb3fcfd48b49fdd9be7381b3be340853aa4 upstream. From: Christian Borntraeger <borntraeger@de.ibm.com> This patch fixes the sie exit on interrupts. The low level interrupt handler returns to the PSW address in pt_regs and not to the PSW address in the lowcore. Without this fix a cpu bound guest might never leave guest state since the host interrupt handler would blindly return to the SIE instruction, even on need_resched and friends.

2011-03-11futex: Sanitize cmpxchg_futex_value_locked APIMichel Lespinasse
The cmpxchg_futex_value_locked API was funny in that it returned either the original, user-exposed futex value OR an error code such as -EFAULT. This was confusing at best, and could be a source of livelocks in places that retry the cmpxchg_futex_value_locked after trying to fix the issue by running fault_in_user_writeable(). This change makes the cmpxchg_futex_value_locked API more similar to the get_futex_value_locked one, returning an error code and updating the original value through a reference argument.

The partial block handling in sha-s390 is broken when we get a partial block that is followed by an update which fills it with bytes left-over. Instead of storing the newly left-over bytes at the start of the buffer, it will be stored immediately after the previous partial block. This patch fixes this by resetting the index pointer.

2011-01-12[S390] vdso: dont map at mmap_baseHeiko Carstens
The vdso object is currently always mapped with mm->mmap_base used as requested address. In case of flexible mmap layout this means it gets mapped above mmap_base and therefore potentially stealing a bit of address space that is reserved for the stack. In case of flexible mmap layout the object should be mapped below mmap base. For legacy mmap layout above. To fix this just don't request any specific address and let the mmap code figure out an address that fits.

2011-01-05[S390] mutex: Introduce arch_mutex_cpu_relax()Gerald Schaefer
The spinning mutex implementation uses cpu_relax() in busy loops as a compiler barrier. Depending on the architecture, cpu_relax() may do more than needed in this specific mutex spin loops. On System z we also give up the time slice of the virtual cpu in cpu_relax(), which prevents effective spinning on the mutex. This patch replaces cpu_relax() in the spinning mutex code with arch_mutex_cpu_relax(), which can be defined by each architecture that selects HAVE_ARCH_MUTEX_CPU_RELAX. The default is still cpu_relax(), so this patch should not affect other architectures than System z for now.

2011-01-05[S390] smp: delay idle task creationHeiko Carstens
Delay idle task creation until a cpu gets set online instead of creating them for all possible cpus at system startup. For one cpu system this should safe more than 1 MB. On my debug system with lots of debug stuff enabled this saves 2 MB. Same as on x86.

2011-01-05[S390] dasd: Add support for raw ECKD access.Stefan Haberland
Normal I/O operations through the DASD device driver give only access to the data fields of an ECKD device even for track based I/O. This patch extends the DASD device driver to give access to whole ECKD tracks including count, key and data fields.

2011-01-05[S390] dasd: Improve handling of stolen DASD reservationStefan Weinhuber
If a DASD device has been reserved by a Linux system, and later this reservation is ‘stolen’ by a second system by means of an unconditional reserve, then the first system receives a notification about this fact. With this patch such an event can be either ignored, as before, or it can be used to let the device fail all I/O request, so that the device will not block anymore.

2011-01-05[S390] nmi: enable machine checks earlyHeiko Carstens
Until now machine checks for the swapper process of the IPL cpu are just implicitly (and more or less accidently) enabled when the first time the idle process goes into idle state and loads an enabled wait psw. Before that machine checks are disabled. So let's enable them explicitly in trap_init() so we have a well defined time when machine checks are enabled.

2011-01-05[S390] 31 bit entry.S update.Martin Schwidefsky
Make the code in the 31 bit entry.S code as similar as possible to the 64 bit version in entry64.S. That makes it easier to add new code to the first level interrupt handler that affects both 31 and 64 bit kernels. Signed-off-by: Martin Schwidefsky <schwidefsky@de.ibm.com>
