2010-08-13irq: Add new IRQ flag IRQF_NO_SUSPENDIan Campbell
commit 685fd0b4ea3f0f1d5385610b0d5b57775a8d5842 upstream. A small number of users of IRQF_TIMER are using it for the implied no suspend behaviour on interrupts which are not timer interrupts. Therefore add a new IRQF_NO_SUSPEND flag, rename IRQF_TIMER to __IRQF_TIMER and redefine IRQF_TIMER in terms of these new flags.

2010-08-10CRED: Fix RCU warning due to previous patch fixing __task_cred()'s checksDavid Howells
commit 694f690d27dadccc8cb9d90532e76593b61fe098 upstream. Commit 8f92054e7ca1 ("CRED: Fix __task_cred()'s lockdep check and banner comment") fixed the lockdep checks on __task_cred(). This has shown up a place in the signalling code where a lock should be held - namely that check_kill_permission() requires its callers to hold the RCU lock. Fix group_send_sig_info() to get the RCU read lock around its call to check_kill_permission(). Without this patch, the following warning can occur: =================================================== [ INFO: suspicious rcu_dereference_check() usage. ] --------------------------------------------------- kernel/signal.c:660 invoked rcu_dereference_check() without protection! ...

2010-07-29CRED: Fix get_task_cred() and task_state() to not resurrect dead credentialsDavid Howells
It's possible for get_task_cred() as it currently stands to 'corrupt' a set of credentials by incrementing their usage count after their replacement by the task being accessed. What happens is that get_task_cred() can race with commit_creds(): TASK_1 TASK_2 RCU_CLEANER -->get_task_cred(TASK_2) rcu_read_lock() __cred = __task_cred(TASK_2) -->commit_creds() old_cred = TASK_2->real_cred TASK_2->real_cred = ... put_cred(old_cred) call_rcu(old_cred) [__cred->usage == 0] get_cred(__cred) [__cred->usage == 1] rcu_read_unlock() -->put_cred_rcu() [__cred->usage == 1] panic() However, since a tasks credentials are generally not changed very often, we can reasonably make use of a loop involving reading the creds pointer and using atomic_inc_not_zero() to attempt to increment it if it hasn't already hit zero. If successful, we can safely return the credentials in the knowledge that, even if the task we're accessing has released them, they haven't gone to the RCU cleanup code. We then change task_state() in procfs to use get_task_cred() rather than calling get_cred() on the result of __task_cred(), as that suffers from the same problem. Without this change, a BUG_ON in __put_cred() or in put_cred_rcu() can be tripped when it is noticed that the usage count is not zero as it ought to be, for example: kernel BUG at kernel/cred.c:168! invalid opcode: 0000 [#1] SMP last sysfs file: /sys/kernel/mm/ksm/run CPU 0 Pid: 2436, comm: master Not tainted #1 0HR330/OptiPlex 745 RIP: 0010:[<ffffffff81069881>] [<ffffffff81069881>] __put_cred+0xc/0x45 RSP: 0018:ffff88019e7e9eb8 EFLAGS: 00010202 RAX: 0000000000000001 RBX: ffff880161514480 RCX: 00000000ffffffff RDX: 00000000ffffffff RSI: ffff880140c690c0 RDI: ffff880140c690c0 RBP: ffff88019e7e9eb8 R08: 00000000000000d0 R09: 0000000000000000 R10: 0000000000000001 R11: 0000000000000040 R12: ffff880140c690c0 R13: ffff88019e77aea0 R14: 00007fff336b0a5c R15: 0000000000000001 FS: 00007f12f50d97c0(0000) GS:ffff880007400000(0000) knlGS:0000000000000000 CS: 0010 DS: 0000 ES: 0000 CR0: 0000000080050033 CR2: 00007f8f461bc000 CR3: 00000001b26ce000 CR4: 00000000000006f0 DR0: 0000000000000000 DR1: 0000000000000000 DR2: 0000000000000000 DR3: 0000000000000000 DR6: 00000000ffff0ff0 DR7: 0000000000000400 Process master (pid: 2436, threadinfo ffff88019e7e8000, task ffff88019e77aea0) Stack: ffff88019e7e9ec8 ffffffff810698cd ffff88019e7e9ef8 ffffffff81069b45 <0> ffff880161514180 ffff880161514480 ffff880161514180 0000000000000000 <0> ffff88019e7e9f28 ffffffff8106aace 0000000000000001 0000000000000246 Call Trace: [<ffffffff810698cd>] put_cred+0x13/0x15 [<ffffffff81069b45>] commit_creds+0x16b/0x175 [<ffffffff8106aace>] set_current_groups+0x47/0x4e [<ffffffff8106ac89>] sys_setgroups+0xf6/0x105 [<ffffffff81009b02>] system_call_fastpath+0x16/0x1b Code: 48 8d 71 ff e8 7e 4e 15 00 85 c0 78 0b 8b 75 ec 48 89 df e8 ef 4a 15 00 48 83 c4 18 5b c9 c3 55 8b 07 8b 07 48 89 e5 85 c0 74 04 <0f> 0b eb fe 65 48 8b 04 25 00 cc 00 00 48 3b b8 58 04 00 00 75 RIP [<ffffffff81069881>] __put_cred+0xc/0x45 RSP <ffff88019e7e9eb8> ---[ end trace df391256a100ebdd ]--- Signed-off-by: David Howells <dhowells@redhat.com> Acked-by: Jiri Olsa <jolsa@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>

2010-06-30futex: futex_find_get_task remove credentails checkMichal Hocko
futex_find_get_task is currently used (through lookup_pi_state) from two contexts, futex_requeue and futex_lock_pi_atomic. None of the paths looks it needs the credentials check, though. Different (e)uids shouldn't matter at all because the only thing that is important for shared futex is the accessibility of the shared memory. The credentail check results in glibc assert failure or process hang (if glibc is compiled without assert support) for shared robust pthread mutex with priority inheritance if a process tries to lock already held lock owned by a process with a different euid: pthread_mutex_lock.c:312: __pthread_mutex_lock_full: Assertion `(-(e)) != 3 || !robust' failed. The problem is that futex_lock_pi_atomic which is called when we try to lock already held lock checks the current holder (tid is stored in the futex value) to get the PI state. It uses lookup_pi_state which in turn gets task struct from futex_find_get_task. ESRCH is returned either when the task is not found or if credentials check fails. futex_lock_pi_atomic simply returns if it gets ESRCH. glibc code, however, doesn't expect that robust lock returns with ESRCH because it should get either success or owner died.

2010-06-23rcu: apply RCU protection to wake_affine()Daniel J Blueman
The task_group() function returns a pointer that must be protected by either RCU, the ->alloc_lock, or the cgroup lock (see the rcu_dereference_check() in task_subsys_state(), which is invoked by task_group()). The wake_affine() function currently does none of these, which means that a concurrent update would be within its rights to free the structure returned by task_group(). Because wake_affine() uses this structure only to compute load-balancing heuristics, there is no reason to acquire either of the two locks. Therefore, this commit introduces an RCU read-side critical section that starts before the first call to task_group() and ends after the last use of the "tg" pointer returned from task_group(). Thanks to Li Zefan for pointing out the need to extend the RCU read-side critical section from that proposed by the original patch.

2010-06-18sched: Fix over-scheduling bugAlex,Shi
Commit e70971591 ("sched: Optimize unused cgroup configuration") introduced an imbalanced scheduling bug. If we do not use CGROUP, function update_h_load won't update h_load. When the system has a large number of tasks far more than logical CPU number, the incorrect cfs_rq[cpu]->h_load value will cause load_balance() to pull too many tasks to the local CPU from the busiest CPU. So the busiest CPU keeps going in a round robin. That will hurt performance. The issue was found originally by a scientific calculation workload that developed by Yanmin. With that commit, the workload performance drops about 40%.

2010-06-10perf/tracing: Fix regression of perf losing kprobe eventsSteven Rostedt
With the addition of the code to shrink the kernel tracepoint infrastructure, we lost kprobes being traced by perf. The reason is that I tested if the "tp_event->class->perf_probe" existed before enabling it. This prevents "ftrace only" events (like the function trace events) from being enabled by perf. Unfortunately, kprobe events do not use perf_probe. This causes kprobes to be missed by perf. To fix this, we add the test to see if "tp_event->class->reg" exists as well as perf_probe. Normal trace events have only "perf_probe" but no "reg" function, and kprobes and syscalls have the "reg" but no "perf_probe". The ftrace unique events do not have either, so this is a valid test. If a kprobe or syscall is not to be probed by perf, the "reg" function is called anyway, and will return a failure and prevent perf from probing it.

2010-06-09genirq: Deal with desc->set_type() changing desc->chipThomas Gleixner
The set_type() function can change the chip implementation when the trigger mode changes. That might result in using an non-initialized irq chip when called from __setup_irq() or when called via set_irq_type() on an already enabled irq. The set_irq_type() function should not be called on an enabled irq, but because we forgot to put a check into it, we have a bunch of users which grew the habit of doing that and it never blew up as the function is serialized via desc->lock against all users of desc->chip and they never hit the non-initialized irq chip issue. The easy fix for the __setup_irq() issue would be to move the irq_chip_set_defaults(desc->chip) call after the trigger setting to make sure that a chip change is covered. But as we have already users, which do the type setting after request_irq(), the safe fix for now is to call irq_chip_set_defaults() from __irq_set_trigger() when desc->set_type() changed the irq chip. It needs a deeper analysis whether we should refuse to change the chip on an already enabled irq, but that'd be a large scale change to fix all the existing users. So that's neither stable nor 2.6.35 material.

2010-06-08sched: Fix PROVE_RCU vs cpu_cgroupPeter Zijlstra
PROVE_RCU has a few issues with the cpu_cgroup because the scheduler typically holds rq->lock around the css rcu derefs but the generic cgroup code doesn't (and can't) know about that lock. Provide means to add extra checks to the css dereference and use that in the scheduler to annotate its users. The addition of rq->lock to these checks is correct because the cgroup_subsys::attach() method takes the rq->lock for each task it moves, therefore by holding that lock, we ensure the task is pinned to the current cgroup and the RCU derefence is valid. That leaves one genuine race in __sched_setscheduler() where we used task_group() without holding any of the required locks and thus raced with the cgroup code. Solve this by moving the check under the appropriate lock. Signed-off-by: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl> Cc: "Paul E.

2010-06-08perf: Fix signed comparison in perf_adjust_period()Peter Zijlstra
Frederic reported that frequency driven swevents didn't work properly and even caused a division-by-zero error. It turns out there are two bugs, the division-by-zero comes from a failure to deal with that in perf_calculate_period(). The other was more interesting and turned out to be a wrong comparison in perf_adjust_period(). The comparison was between an s64 and u64 and got implicitly converted to an unsigned comparison. The problem is that period_left is typically < 0, so it ended up being always true. Cure this by making the local period variables s64.

2010-06-05module: fix bne2 "gave up waiting for init of module libcrc32c"Rusty Russell
Problem: it's hard to avoid an init routine stumbling over a request_module these days. And it's not clear it's always a bad idea: for example, a module like kvm with dynamic dependencies on kvm-intel or kvm-amd would be neater if it could simply request_module the right one. In this particular case, it's libcrc32c: libcrc32c_mod_init crypto_alloc_shash crypto_alloc_tfm crypto_find_alg crypto_alg_mod_lookup crypto_larval_lookup request_module If another module is waiting inside resolve_symbol() for libcrc32c to finish initializing (ie. bne2 depends on libcrc32c) then it does so holding the module lock, and our request_module() can't make progress until that is released. Waiting inside resolve_symbol() without the lock isn't all that hard: we just need to pass the -EBUSY up the call chain so we can sleep where we don't hold the lock. Error reporting is a bit trickier: we need to copy the name of the unfinished module before releasing the lock. Other notes: 1) This also fixes a theoretical issue where a weak dependency would allow symbol version mismatches to be ignored. 2) We rename use_module to ref_module to make life easier for the only external user (the out-of-tree ksplice patches).

2010-06-05module: verify_export_symbols under the lockRusty Russell
It disabled preempt so it was "safe", but nothing stops another module slipping in before this module is added to the global list now we don't hold the lock the whole time. So we check this just after we check for duplicate modules, and just before we put the module in the global list. (find_symbol finds symbols in coming and going modules, too).

2010-06-05module: move find_module check to endLinus Torvalds
I think Rusty may have made the lock a bit _too_ finegrained there, and didn't add it to some places that needed it. It looks, for example, like PATCH 1/2 actually drops the lock in places where it's needed ("find_module()" is documented to need it, but now load_module() didn't hold it at all when it did the find_module()). Rather than adding a new "module_loading" list, I think we should be able to just use the existing "modules" list, and just fix up the locking a bit. In fact, maybe we could just move the "look up existing module" a bit later - optimistically assuming that the module doesn't exist, and then just undoing the work if it turns out that we were wrong, just before adding ourselves to the list.

2010-06-05module: Make the 'usage' lists be two-wayLinus Torvalds
When adding a module that depends on another one, we used to create a one-way list of "modules_which_use_me", so that module unloading could see who needs a module. It's actually quite simple to make that list go both ways: so that we not only can see "who uses me", but also see a list of modules that are "used by me". In fact, we always wanted that list in "module_unload_free()": when we unload a module, we want to also release all the other modules that are used by that module. But because we didn't have that list, we used to first iterate over all modules, and then iterate over each "used by me" list of that module. By making the list two-way, we simplify module_unload_free(), and it allows for some trivial fixes later too.

2010-06-04sys_personality: change sys_personality() to accept "unsigned int" instead ↵Oleg Nesterov
of u_long task_struct->pesonality is "unsigned int", but sys_personality() paths use "unsigned long pesonality". This means that every assignment or comparison is not right. In particular, if this argument does not fit into "unsigned int" __set_personality() changes the caller's personality and then sys_personality() returns -EINVAL. Turn this argument into "unsigned int" and avoid overflows. Obviously, this is the user-visible change, we just ignore the upper bits. But this can't break the sane application. There is another thing which can confuse the poorly written applications. User-space thinks that this syscall returns int, not long. This means that the returned value can be negative and look like the error code. But note that libc won't be confused and thus errno won't be set, and with this patch the user-space can never get -1 unless sys_personality() really fails. And, most importantly, the negative RET != -1 is only possible if that app previously called personality(RET).

Frederic reported that because swevents handling doesn't disable IRQs anymore, we can get a recursion of perf_adjust_period(), once from overflow handling and once from the tick. If both call ->disable, we get a double hlist_del_rcu() and trigger a LIST_POISON2 dereference.
