2011-04-21kstrto*: converting strings to integers done (hopefully) rightAlexey Dobriyan
commit 33ee3b2e2eb9b4b6c64dcf9ed66e2ac3124e748c upstream. 1. simple_strto*() do not contain overflow checks and crufty, libc way to indicate failure. 2. strict_strto*() also do not have overflow checks but the name and comments pretend they do. 3. Both families have only "long long" and "long" variants, but users want strtou8() 4. Both "simple" and "strict" prefixes are wrong: Simple doesn't exactly say what's so simple, strict should not exist because conversion should be strict by default. The solution is to use "k" prefix and add convertors for more types. Enter kstrtoull() kstrtoll() kstrtoul() kstrtol() kstrtouint() kstrtoint() kstrtou64() kstrtos64() kstrtou32() kstrtos32() kstrtou16() kstrtos16() kstrtou8() kstrtos8() Include runtime testsuite (somewhat incomplete) as well. strict_strto*() become deprecated, stubbed to kstrto*() and eventually will be removed altogether. Use kstrto*() in code today! Note: on some archs _kstrtoul() and _kstrtol() are left in tree, even if they'll be unused at runtime. This is temporarily solution, because I don't want to hardcode list of archs where these functions aren't needed. Current solution with sizeof() and __alignof__ at least always works.

2011-03-11plist: Shrink struct plist_headLai Jiangshan
struct plist_head is used in struct task_struct as well as struct rtmutex. If we can make it smaller, it will also make these structures smaller as well. The field prio_list in struct plist_head is seldom used and we can get its information from the plist_nodes. Removing this field will decrease the size of plist_head by half.

2011-02-25swiotlb: fix wrong panicFUJITA Tomonori
swiotlb's map_page wrongly calls panic() when it can't find a buffer fit for device's dma mask. It should return an error instead. Devices with an odd dma mask (i.e. under 4G) like b44 network card hit this bug (the system crashes): http://marc.info/?l=linux-kernel&m=129648943830106&w=2 If swiotlb returns an error, b44 driver can use the own bouncing mechanism.

2011-02-18Expand CONFIG_DEBUG_LIST to several other list operationsLinus Torvalds
When list debugging is enabled, we aim to readably show list corruption errors, and the basic list_add/list_del operations end up having extra debugging code in them to do some basic validation of the list entries. However, "list_del_init()" and "list_move[_tail]()" ended up avoiding the debug code due to how they were written. This fixes that. So the _next_ time we have list_move() problems with stale list entries, we'll hopefully have an easier time finding them.. Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>

Therefore the following "while" repeats forever because the above conditions cause "ret" not to be updated and the cur_index cannot be changed into the bigger one. (So, radix_tree_gang_lookup_tag_slot() cannot return forever.) radix_tree_gang_lookup_tag_slot(): 1178 while (ret < max_items) { 1179 unsigned int slots_found; 1180 unsigned long next_index; /* Index of next search */ 1181 1182 if (cur_index > max_index) 1183 break; 1184 slots_found = __lookup_tag(node, results + ret, 1185 cur_index, max_items - ret, &next_index, tag); 1186 ret += slots_found; // cannot update ret because slots_found == 0. // so, this while loops forever. 1187 if (next_index == 0) 1188 break; 1189 cur_index = next_index; 1190 } (2) Why does __lookup_tag() return with 0 and doesn't update the index? Assuming the following: - the one of the slot in radix_tree_node is NULL. - the one of the tag which corresponds to the slot sets with PAGECACHE_TAG_TOWRITE or other. - In a certain height(!=0), the corresponding index is 0. a) __lookup_tag() notices that the tag is set. 1005 static unsigned int 1006 __lookup_tag(struct radix_tree_node *slot, void ***results, unsigned long index, 1007 unsigned int max_items, unsigned long *next_index, unsigned int tag) 1008 { 1009 unsigned int nr_found = 0; 1010 unsigned int shift, height; 1011 1012 height = slot->height; 1013 if (height == 0) 1014 goto out; 1015 shift = (height-1) * RADIX_TREE_MAP_SHIFT; 1016 1017 while (height > 0) { 1018 unsigned long i = (index >> shift) & RADIX_TREE_MAP_MASK ; 1019 1020 for (;;) { 1021 if (tag_get(slot, tag, i)) 1022 break; ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ * the index is not updated yet. b) __lookup_tag() notices that the slot is NULL. 1023 index &= ~((1UL << shift) - 1); 1024 index += 1UL << shift; 1025 if (index == 0) 1026 goto out; /* 32-bit wraparound */ 1027 i++; 1028 if (i == RADIX_TREE_MAP_SIZE) 1029 goto out; 1030 } 1031 height--; 1032 if (height == 0) { /* Bottom level: grab some items */ ... 1055 } 1056 shift -= RADIX_TREE_MAP_SHIFT; 1057 slot = rcu_dereference_raw(slot->slots[i]); 1058 if (slot == NULL) 1059 break; ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ c) __lookup_tag() doesn't update the index and return with 0. 1060 } 1061 out: 1062 *next_index = index; ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ 1063 return nr_found; 1064 } (3) Why is the slot NULL even if the tag is set? Because radix_tree_range_tag_if_tagged() always sets the root tag with PAGECACHE_TAG_TOWRITE if the root tag is set with PAGECACHE_TAG_DIRTY, even if there is no tag which can be set with PAGECACHE_TAG_TOWRITE in the specified range (from *first_indexp to last_index). Of course, some PAGECACHE_TAG_DIRTY nodes must exist outside the specified range. (radix_tree_range_tag_if_tagged() is called only from tag_pages_for_writeback()) 640 unsigned long radix_tree_range_tag_if_tagged(struct radix_tree_root *root, 641 unsigned long *first_indexp, unsigned long last_index, 642 unsigned long nr_to_tag, 643 unsigned int iftag, unsigned int settag) 644 { 645 unsigned int height = root->height; 646 struct radix_tree_path path[height]; 647 struct radix_tree_path *pathp = path; 648 struct radix_tree_node *slot; 649 unsigned int shift; 650 unsigned long tagged = 0; 651 unsigned long index = *first_indexp; 652 653 last_index = min(last_index, radix_tree_maxindex(height)); 654 if (index > last_index) 655 return 0; 656 if (!nr_to_tag) 657 return 0; 658 if (!root_tag_get(root, iftag)) { 659 *first_indexp = last_index + 1; 660 return 0; 661 } 662 if (height == 0) { 663 *first_indexp = last_index + 1; 664 root_tag_set(root, settag); 665 return 1; 666 } ... 733 root_tag_set(root, settag); ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ 734 *first_indexp = index; 735 736 return tagged; 737 } As the result, there is no radix_tree_node which is set with PAGECACHE_TAG_TOWRITE but the root tag(radix_tree_root) is set with PAGECACHE_TAG_TOWRITE.

2011-01-20kconfig: rename CONFIG_EMBEDDED to CONFIG_EXPERTDavid Rientjes
The meaning of CONFIG_EMBEDDED has long since been obsoleted; the option is used to configure any non-standard kernel with a much larger scope than only small devices. This patch renames the option to CONFIG_EXPERT in init/Kconfig and fixes references to the option throughout the kernel. A new CONFIG_EMBEDDED option is added that automatically selects CONFIG_EXPERT when enabled and can be used in the future to isolate options that should only be considered for embedded systems (RISC architectures, SLOB, etc). Calling the option "EXPERT" more accurately represents its intention: only expert users who understand the impact of the configuration changes they are making should enable it.

2011-01-13decompressors: add boot-time XZ supportLasse Collin
This implements the API defined in <linux/decompress/generic.h> which is used for kernel, initramfs, and initrd decompression. This patch together with the first patch is enough for XZ-compressed initramfs and initrd; XZ-compressed kernel will need arch-specific changes. The buffering requirements described in decompress_unxz.c are stricter than with gzip, so the relevant changes should be done to the arch-specific code when adding support for XZ-compressed kernel. Similarly, the heap size in arch-specific pre-boot code may need to be increased (30 KiB is enough). The XZ decompressor needs memmove(), memeq() (memcmp() == 0), and memzero() (memset(ptr, 0, size)), which aren't available in all arch-specific pre-boot environments. I'm including simple versions in decompress_unxz.c, but a cleaner solution would naturally be nicer. Signed-off-by: Lasse Collin <lasse.collin@tukaani.org> Cc: "H.

2011-01-13decompressors: add XZ decompressor moduleLasse Collin
In userspace, the .lzma format has become mostly a legacy file format that got superseded by the .xz format. Similarly, LZMA Utils was superseded by XZ Utils. These patches add support for XZ decompression into the kernel. Most of the code is as is from XZ Embedded <http://tukaani.org/xz/embedded.html>. It was written for the Linux kernel but is usable in other projects too. Advantages of XZ over the current LZMA code in the kernel: - Nice API that can be used by other kernel modules; it's not limited to kernel, initramfs, and initrd decompression. - Integrity check support (CRC32) - BCJ filters improve compression of executable code on certain architectures. These together with LZMA2 can produce a few percent smaller kernel or Squashfs images than plain LZMA without making the decompression slower. This patch: Add the main decompression code (xz_dec), testing module (xz_dec_test), wrapper script (xz_wrap.sh) for the xz command line tool, and documentation. The xz_dec module is enough to have a usable XZ decompressor e.g. for Squashfs. Signed-off-by: Lasse Collin <lasse.collin@tukaani.org> Cc: "H.

2011-01-13Decompressors: fix callback-to-callback mode in decompress_unlzo.cLasse Collin
Callback-to-callback decompression mode is used for initrd (not initramfs). The LZO wrapper is broken for this use case for two reasons: - The argument validation is needlessly too strict by requiring that "posp" is non-NULL when "fill" is non-NULL. - The buffer handling code didn't work at all for this use case. I tested with LZO-compressed kernel, initramfs, initrd, and corrupt (truncated) initramfs and initrd images. Signed-off-by: Lasse Collin <lasse.collin@tukaani.org> Cc: "H.

Return value of rc->fill() is checked in rc_read() and error() is called when needed, but then the code continues as if nothing had happened. rc_read() is a void function and it's on the top of performance critical call stacks, so propagating the error code via return values doesn't sound like the best fix. It seems better to check rc->buffer_size (which holds the return value of rc->fill()) in the main loop. It does nothing bad that the code runs a little with unknown data after a failed rc->fill(). This fixes an infinite loop in initramfs decompression if the LZMA-compressed initramfs image is corrupt. Signed-off-by: Lasse Collin <lasse.collin@tukaani.org> Cc: "H.

2011-01-13kptr_restrict for hiding kernel pointers from unprivileged usersDan Rosenberg
Add the %pK printk format specifier and the /proc/sys/kernel/kptr_restrict sysctl. The %pK format specifier is designed to hide exposed kernel pointers, specifically via /proc interfaces. Exposing these pointers provides an easy target for kernel write vulnerabilities, since they reveal the locations of writable structures containing easily triggerable function pointers. The behavior of %pK depends on the kptr_restrict sysctl. If kptr_restrict is set to 0, no deviation from the standard %p behavior occurs. If kptr_restrict is set to 1, the default, if the current user (intended to be a reader via seq_printf(), etc.) does not have CAP_SYSLOG (currently in the LSM tree), kernel pointers using %pK are printed as 0's. If kptr_restrict is set to 2, kernel pointers using %pK are printed as 0's regardless of privileges. Replacing with 0's was chosen over the default "(null)", which cannot be parsed by userland %p, which expects "(nil)".

2011-01-12ACPI, APEI, Generic Hardware Error Source POLL/IRQ/NMI notification type supportHuang Ying
Generic Hardware Error Source provides a way to report platform hardware errors (such as that from chipset). It works in so called "Firmware First" mode, that is, hardware errors are reported to firmware firstly, then reported to Linux by firmware. This way, some non-standard hardware error registers or non-standard hardware link can be checked by firmware to produce more valuable hardware error information for Linux. This patch adds POLL/IRQ/NMI notification types support. Because the memory area used to transfer hardware error information from BIOS to Linux can be determined only in NMI, IRQ or timer handler, but general ioremap can not be used in atomic context, so a special version of atomic ioremap is implemented for that. Known issue: - Error information can not be printed for recoverable errors notified via NMI, because printk is not NMI-safe. Will fix this via delay printing to IRQ context via irq_work or make printk NMI-safe. v2: - adjust printk format per comments.

2010-12-22x86, nmi_watchdog: Remove ARCH_HAS_NMI_WATCHDOG and rely on ↵Don Zickus
CONFIG_HARDLOCKUP_DETECTOR The x86 arch has shifted its use of the nmi_watchdog from a local implementation to the global one provide by kernel/watchdog.c. This shift has caused a whole bunch of compile problems under different config options. I attempt to simplify things with the patch below. In order to simplify things, I had to come to terms with the meaning of two terms ARCH_HAS_NMI_WATCHDOG and CONFIG_HARDLOCKUP_DETECTOR. Basically they mean the same thing, the former on a local level and the latter on a global level. With the old x86 nmi watchdog gone, there is no need to rely on defining the ARCH_HAS_NMI_WATCHDOG variable because it doesn't make sense any more. x86 will now use the global implementation. The changes below do a few things. First it changes the few places that relied on ARCH_HAS_NMI_WATCHDOG to use CONFIG_X86_LOCAL_APIC (the former was an alias for the latter anyway, so nothing unusual here). Those pieces of code were relying more on local apic functionality the nmi watchdog functionality, so the change should make sense. Second, I removed the x86 implementation of touch_nmi_watchdog(). It isn't need now, instead x86 will rely on kernel/watchdog.c's implementation. Third, I removed the #define ARCH_HAS_NMI_WATCHDOG itself from x86. And tweaked the include/linux/nmi.h file to tell users to look for an externally defined touch_nmi_watchdog in the case of ARCH_HAS_NMI_WATCHDOG _or_ CONFIG_HARDLOCKUP_DETECTOR. This changes removes some of the ugliness in that file. Finally, I added a Kconfig dependency for CONFIG_HARDLOCKUP_DETECTOR that said you can't have ARCH_HAS_NMI_WATCHDOG _and_ CONFIG_HARDLOCKUP_DETECTOR. You can only have one nmi_watchdog. Tested with ARCH=i386: allnoconfig, defconfig, allyesconfig, (various broken configs) ARCH=x86_64: allnoconfig, defconfig, allyesconfig, (various broken configs) Hopefully, after this patch I won't get any more compile broken emails. :-) v3: changed a couple of 'linux/nmi.h' -> 'asm/nmi.h' to pick-up correct function prototypes when CONFIG_HARDLOCKUP_DETECTOR is not set.
