2017-04-12ACPI / sysfs: Provide quirk mechanism to prevent GPE floodingLv Zheng
[ Upstream commit 9c4aa1eecb48cfac18ed5e3aca9d9ae58fbafc11 ] Sometimes, the users may require a quirk to be provided from ACPI subsystem core to prevent a GPE from flooding. Normally, if a GPE cannot be dispatched, ACPICA core automatically prevents the GPE from firing. But there are cases the GPE is dispatched by _Lxx/_Exx provided via AML table, and OSPM is lacking of the knowledge to get _Lxx/_Exx correctly executed to handle the GPE, thus the GPE flooding may still occur. The existing quirk mechanism can be enabled/disabled using the following commands to prevent such kind of GPE flooding during runtime: # echo mask > /sys/firmware/acpi/interrupts/gpe00 # echo unmask > /sys/firmware/acpi/interrupts/gpe00 To avoid GPE flooding during boot, we need a boot stage mechanism. This patch provides such a boot stage quirk mechanism to stop this kind of GPE flooding. This patch doesn't fix any feature gap but since the new feature gaps could be found in the future endlessly, and can disappear if the feature gaps are filled, providing a boot parameter rather than a DMI table should suffice.

2017-02-26x86/platform/goldfish: Prevent unconditional loadingThomas Gleixner
commit 47512cfd0d7a8bd6ab71d01cd89fca19eb2093eb upstream. The goldfish platform code registers the platform device unconditionally which causes havoc in several ways if the goldfish_pdev_bus driver is enabled: - Access to the hardcoded physical memory region, which is either not available or contains stuff which is completely unrelated. - Prevents that the interrupt of the serial port can be requested - In case of a spurious interrupt it goes into a infinite loop in the interrupt handler of the pdev_bus driver (which needs to be fixed seperately). Add a 'goldfish' command line option to make the registration opt-in when the platform is compiled in. I'm seriously grumpy about this engineering trainwreck, which has seven SOBs from Intel developers for 50 lines of code. And none of them figured out that this is broken. Impressive fail!

2017-01-26swiotlb: Add swiotlb=noforce debug optionGeert Uytterhoeven
commit fff5d99225107f5f13fe4a9805adc2a1c4b5fb00 upstream. On architectures like arm64, swiotlb is tied intimately to the core architecture DMA support. In addition, ZONE_DMA cannot be disabled. To aid debugging and catch devices not supporting DMA to memory outside the 32-bit address space, add a kernel command line option "swiotlb=noforce", which disables the use of bounce buffers. If specified, trying to map memory that cannot be used with DMA will fail, and a rate-limited warning will be printed. Note that io_tlb_nslabs is set to 1, which is the minimal supported value.

2016-10-11Input: i8042 - skip selftest on ASUS laptopsMarcos Paulo de Souza
On suspend/resume cycle, selftest is executed to reset i8042 controller. But when this is done in Asus devices, subsequent calls to detect/init functions to elantech driver fails. Skipping selftest fixes this problem. An easier step to reproduce this problem is adding i8042.reset=1 as a kernel parameter. On Asus laptops, it'll make the system to start with the touchpad already stuck, since psmouse_probe forcibly calls the selftest function. This patch was inspired by John Hiesey's change[1], but, since this problem affects a lot of models of Asus, let's avoid running selftests on them.

2016-10-11lib/bitmap.c: enhance bitmap syntaxNoam Camus
Today there are platforms with many CPUs (up to 4K). Trying to boot only part of the CPUs may result in too long string. For example lets take NPS platform that is part of arch/arc. This platform have SMP system with 256 cores each with 16 HW threads (SMT machine) where HW thread appears as CPU to the kernel. In this example there is total of 4K CPUs. When one tries to boot only part of the HW threads from each core the string representing the map may be long... For example if for sake of performance we decided to boot only first half of HW threads of each core the map will look like: 0-7,16-23,32-39,...,4080-4087 This patch introduce new syntax to accommodate with such use case. I added an optional postfix to a range of CPUs which will choose according to given modulo the desired range of reminders i.e.: <cpus range>:sed_size/group_size For example, above map can be described in new syntax like this: 0-4095:8/16 Note that this patch is backward compatible with current syntax.

We can now select GPIOLIB and be done with it, for all archs. After some struggle it even work on UM. Not that it has GPIO, but if it wants to, it can select the library. - continued efforts to make drivers properly either tristate or bool. - introduce a warning for drivers assigning default triggers to their irqchip lines when probed from device tree, so we find and fix these ambigous drivers. It is agreed that in the OF config path, the device tree defines trigger characteristics. - the same warning, mutatis mutandis, for ACPI-probed GPIO irqchips. - we introduce the ability to mark certain IRQ lines as "unusable" as they can be taken by BIOS/firmware, unrouted in silicon and generally nasty if you use them, and such things. This is put to good use in the STMPE driver and also in the Cherryview pin control driver. - a new "mockup" virtual GPIO device that can be used for testing. The plan is to add unit tests under tools/* for exercising this device and verify that the kernel code paths are working as they should. - make memory-mapped I/O-drivers depend on HAS_IOMEM. This was implicit all the time, but when people started building UM with allyesconfig or allmodconfig it exploded in their face. - move some stray bits of device tree and ACPI HW description callbacks down into their respective implementation silo. These were causing issues when compiling on !HAS_IOMEM as well, so now eventually UM compiles the GPIOLIB library if it wants to. New drivers: - new driver for the Aspeed GPIO front-end companion to the pin controller merged through the pin control tree. - new driver for the LP873x PMIC GPIO portions. - new driver for Technologic Systems' I2C FPGA GPIO such as TS4900, TS-7970, TS-7990 and TS-4100. - new driver for the Broadcom BCM63xx series including BCM6338 and BCM6345. - new driver for the Intel WhiskeyCove PMIC GPIO. - new driver for the Allwinner AXP209 PMIC GPIO portions. - new driver for Diamond Systems 48 line GPIO-MM, another of these port-mapped I/O expansion cards. - support the STMicroelectronics STMPE1600 variant in the STMPE driver. Driver improvements: - the STMPE driver now supports rising/falling edge detection properly for IRQs. - the PCA954x will now fetch and enable its VCC regulator properly. - major rework of the PCA953x driver with the goal of eventually switching it over to use regmap and thus modernize it even more. - switch the IOP driver to use the generic MMIO GPIO library. - move the ages old HTC EGPIO (extended GPIO) GPIO expander driver over to this subsystem from MFD, achieveing some separation of concerns" * tag 'gpio-v4.9-1' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/linusw/linux-gpio: (81 commits) gpio: add missing static inline gpio: OF: localize some gpiochip init functions gpio: acpi: separation of concerns gpio: OF: separation of concerns gpio: make memory-mapped drivers depend on HAS_IOMEM gpio: stmpe: use BIT() macro gpio: stmpe: forbid unused lines to be mapped as IRQs mfd/gpio: Move HTC GPIO driver to GPIO subsystem gpio: MAINTAINERS: Add an entry for GPIO mockup driver gpio/mockup: add virtual gpio device gpio: Added zynq specific check for special pins on bank zero gpio: axp209: Implement get_direction gpio: aspeed: remove redundant return value check gpio: loongson1: remove redundant return value check ARM: omap2: fix missing include gpio: tc3589x: fix up complaints on unsigned gpio: tc3589x: add .get_direction() and small cleanup gpio: f7188x: use gpiochip_get_data instead of container_of gpio: tps65218: use devm_gpiochip_add_data() for gpio registration gpio: aspeed: fix return value check in aspeed_gpio_probe() ...

2016-09-23arm64: arch_timer: Work around QorIQ Erratum A-008585Scott Wood
Erratum A-008585 says that the ARM generic timer counter "has the potential to contain an erroneous value for a small number of core clock cycles every time the timer value changes". Accesses to TVAL (both read and write) are also affected due to the implicit counter read. Accesses to CVAL are not affected. The workaround is to reread TVAL and count registers until successive reads return the same value. Writes to TVAL are replaced with an equivalent write to CVAL. The workaround is to reread TVAL and count registers until successive reads return the same value, and when writing TVAL to retry until counter reads before and after the write return the same value. The workaround is enabled if the fsl,erratum-a008585 property is found in the timer node in the device tree. This can be overridden with the clocksource.arm_arch_timer.fsl-a008585 boot parameter, which allows KVM users to enable the workaround until a mechanism is implemented to automatically communicate this information. This erratum can be found on LS1043A and LS2080A.

2016-09-13scsi: introduce a quirk for false cache reportingOliver Neukum
Some SATA to USB bridges fail to cooperate with some drives resulting in no cache being present being reported to the host. That causes the host to skip sending a command to synchronize caches.

2016-09-09x86/pkeys: Default to a restrictive init PKRUDave Hansen
PKRU is the register that lets you disallow writes or all access to a given protection key. The XSAVE hardware defines an "init state" of 0 for PKRU: its most permissive state, allowing access/writes to everything. Since we start off all new processes with the init state, we start all processes off with the most permissive possible PKRU. This is unfortunate. If a thread is clone()'d [1] before a program has time to set PKRU to a restrictive value, that thread will be able to write to all data, no matter what pkey is set on it. This weakens any integrity guarantees that we want pkeys to provide. To fix this, we define a very restrictive PKRU to override the XSAVE-provided value when we create a new FPU context. We choose a value that only allows access to pkey 0, which is as restrictive as we can practically make it. This does not cause any practical problems with applications using protection keys because we require them to specify initial permissions for each key when it is allocated, which override the restrictive default. In the end, this ensures that threads which do not know how to manage their own pkey rights can not do damage to data which is pkey-protected. I would have thought this was a pretty contrived scenario, except that I heard a bug report from an MPX user who was creating threads in some very early code before main(). It may be crazy, but folks evidently _do_ it.

2016-08-25docs: kernel-parameter: Improve the description of nr_cpus and maxcpusBaoquan He
From the old description people still can't get what's the exact difference between nr_cpus and maxcpus. Especially in kdump kernel nr_cpus is always suggested if it's implemented in the ARCH. The reason is nr_cpus is used to limit the max number of possible cpu in system, the sum of already plugged cpus and hot plug cpus can't exceed its value. However maxcpus is used to limit how many cpus are allowed to be brought up during bootup. Signed-off-by: Baoquan He <bhe@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Jonathan Corbet <corbet@lwn.net>

2016-08-09PCI: Update "pci=resource_alignment" documentationMathias Koehrer
Some uio based PCI drivers, e.g., uio_cif, do not work if the assigned PCI memory resources are not page aligned. By using the kernel option "pci=resource_alignment=<align>@<bus>:<slot>.<func>" it is possible to request page alignment for memory resources of devices. However, this is cumbersome when using several devices, and the bus/slot/func addresses may change if devices are added to or removed from the system. Extend the "pci=resource_alignment" option so we can specify the relevant devices via PCI vendor, device, subvendor, and subdevice IDs. The specification of the devices via IDs is indicated by a leading string "pci:" as argument to "pci=resource_alignment". The format of the specification is pci:<vendor>:<device>[:<subvendor>:<subdevice>] Examples: pci=resource_alignment=4096@pci:8086:9c22:103c:198f pci=resource_alignment=pci:8086:9c22 # defaults to PAGE_SIZE align [bhelgaas: changelog, use actual vendor/device IDs in examples] Signed-off-by: Mathias Koehrer <mathias.koehrer@etas.com> Signed-off-by: Bjorn Helgaas <bhelgaas@google.com>

2016-08-04modules: Add kernel parameter to blacklist modulesPrarit Bhargava
Blacklisting a module in linux has long been a problem. The current procedure is to use rd.blacklist=module_name, however, that doesn't cover the case after the initramfs and before a boot prompt (where one is supposed to use /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf to blacklist runtime loading). Using rd.shell to get an early prompt is hit-or-miss, and doesn't cover all situations AFAICT. This patch adds this functionality of permanently blacklisting a module by its name via the kernel parameter module_blacklist=module_name. [v2]: Rusty, use core_param() instead of __setup() which simplifies things. [v3]: Rusty, undo wreckage from strsep() [v4]: Rusty, simpler version of blacklisted() Signed-off-by: Prarit Bhargava <prarit@redhat.com> Cc: Jonathan Corbet <corbet@lwn.net> Cc: Rusty Russell <rusty@rustcorp.com.au> Cc: linux-doc@vger.kernel.org Signed-off-by: Rusty Russell <rusty@rustcorp.com.au>

2016-08-02printk: add kernel parameter to control writes to /dev/kmsgBorislav Petkov
Add a "printk.devkmsg" kernel command line parameter which controls how userspace writes into /dev/kmsg. It has three options: * ratelimit - ratelimit logging from userspace. * on - unlimited logging from userspace * off - logging from userspace gets ignored The default setting is to ratelimit the messages written to it. This changes the kernel default setting of "on" to "ratelimit" and we do that because we want to keep userspace spamming /dev/kmsg to sane levels. This is especially moot when a small kernel log buffer wraps around and messages get lost. So the ratelimiting setting should be a sane setting where kernel messages should have a bit higher chance of survival from all the spamming. It additionally does not limit logging to /dev/kmsg while the system is booting if we haven't disabled it on the command line. Furthermore, we can control the logging from a lower priority sysctl interface - kernel.printk_devkmsg. That interface will succeed only if printk.devkmsg *hasn't* been supplied on the command line. If it has, then printk.devkmsg is a one-time setting which remains for the duration of the system lifetime. This "locking" of the setting is to prevent userspace from changing the logging on us through sysctl(2). This patch is based on previous patches from Linus and Steven.

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/rafael/linux-pm Pull power management updates from Rafael Wysocki: "Again, the majority of changes go into the cpufreq subsystem, but there are no big features this time. The cpufreq changes that stand out somewhat are the governor interface rework and improvements related to the handling of frequency tables. Apart from those, there are fixes and new device/CPU IDs in drivers, cleanups and an improvement of the new schedutil governor. Next, there are some changes in the hibernation core, including a fix for a nasty problem related to the MONITOR/MWAIT usage by CPU offline during resume from hibernation, a few core improvements related to memory management during resume, a couple of additional debug features and cleanups. Finally, we have some fixes and cleanups in the devfreq subsystem, generic power domains framework improvements related to system suspend/resume, support for some new chips in intel_idle and in the power capping RAPL driver, a new version of the AnalyzeSuspend utility and some assorted fixes and cleanups. Specifics: - Rework the cpufreq governor interface to make it more straightforward and modify the conservative governor to avoid using transition notifications (Rafael Wysocki). - Rework the handling of frequency tables by the cpufreq core to make it more efficient (Viresh Kumar). - Modify the schedutil governor to reduce the number of wakeups it causes to occur in cases when the CPU frequency doesn't need to be changed (Steve Muckle, Viresh Kumar). - Fix some minor issues and clean up code in the cpufreq core and governors (Rafael Wysocki, Viresh Kumar). - Add Intel Broxton support to the intel_pstate driver (Srinivas Pandruvada). - Fix problems related to the config TDP feature and to the validity of the MSR_HWP_INTERRUPT register in intel_pstate (Jan Kiszka, Srinivas Pandruvada). - Make intel_pstate update the cpu_frequency tracepoint even if the frequency doesn't change to avoid confusing powertop (Rafael Wysocki). - Clean up the usage of __init/__initdata in intel_pstate, mark some of its internal variables as __read_mostly and drop an unused structure element from it (Jisheng Zhang, Carsten Emde). - Clean up the usage of some duplicate MSR symbols in intel_pstate and turbostat (Srinivas Pandruvada). - Update/fix the powernv, s3c24xx and mvebu cpufreq drivers (Akshay Adiga, Viresh Kumar, Ben Dooks). - Fix a regression (introduced during the 4.5 cycle) in the pcc-cpufreq driver by reverting the problematic commit (Andreas Herrmann). - Add support for Intel Denverton to intel_idle, clean up Broxton support in it and make it explicitly non-modular (Jacob Pan, Jan Beulich, Paul Gortmaker). - Add support for Denverton and Ivy Bridge server to the Intel RAPL power capping driver and make it more careful about the handing of MSRs that may not be present (Jacob Pan, Xiaolong Wang). - Fix resume from hibernation on x86-64 by making the CPU offline during resume avoid using MONITOR/MWAIT in the "play dead" loop which may lead to an inadvertent "revival" of a "dead" CPU and a page fault leading to a kernel crash from it (Rafael Wysocki). - Make memory management during resume from hibernation more straightforward (Rafael Wysocki). - Add debug features that should help to detect problems related to hibernation and resume from it (Rafael Wysocki, Chen Yu). - Clean up hibernation core somewhat (Rafael Wysocki). - Prevent KASAN from instrumenting the hibernation core which leads to large numbers of false-positives from it (James Morse). - Prevent PM (hibernate and suspend) notifiers from being called during the cleanup phase if they have not been called during the corresponding preparation phase which is possible if one of the other notifiers returns an error at that time (Lianwei Wang). - Improve suspend-related debug printout in the tasks freezer and clean up suspend-related console handling (Roger Lu, Borislav Petkov). - Update the AnalyzeSuspend script in the kernel sources to version 4.2 (Todd Brandt). - Modify the generic power domains framework to make it handle system suspend/resume better (Ulf Hansson). - Make the runtime PM framework avoid resuming devices synchronously when user space changes the runtime PM settings for them and improve its error reporting (Rafael Wysocki, Linus Walleij). - Fix error paths in devfreq drivers (exynos, exynos-ppmu, exynos-bus) and in the core, make some devfreq code explicitly non-modular and change some of it into tristate (Bartlomiej Zolnierkiewicz, Peter Chen, Paul Gortmaker). - Add DT support to the generic PM clocks management code and make it export some more symbols (Jon Hunter, Paul Gortmaker). - Make the PCI PM core code slightly more robust against possible driver errors (Andy Shevchenko). -

Pull documentation updates from Jonathan Corbet: "Some big changes this month, headlined by the addition of a new formatted documentation mechanism based on the Sphinx system. The objectives here are to make it easier to create better-integrated (and more attractive) documents while (eventually) dumping our one-of-a-kind, cobbled-together system for something that is widely used and maintained by others. There's a fair amount of information what's being done, why, and how to use it in: https://lwn.net/Articles/692704/ https://lwn.net/Articles/692705/ Closer to home, Documentation/kernel-documentation.rst describes how it works. For now, the new system exists alongside the old one; you should soon see the GPU documentation converted over in the DRM pull and some significant media conversion work as well. Once all the docs have been moved over and we're convinced that the rough edges (of which are are a few) have been smoothed over, the DocBook-based stuff should go away. Primary credit is to Jani Nikula for doing the heavy lifting to make this stuff actually work; there has also been notable effort from Markus Heiser, Daniel Vetter, and Mauro Carvalho Chehab. Expect a couple of conflicts on the new index.rst file over the course of the merge window; they are trivially resolvable.

2016-07-25PCI: Allow additional bus numbers for hotplug bridgesKeith Busch
A user may hot add a switch requiring more than one bus to enumerate. This previously required a system reboot if BIOS did not sufficiently pad the bus resource, which they frequently don't do. Add a kernel parameter so a user can specify the minimum number of bus numbers to reserve for a hotplug bridge's subordinate buses so rebooting won't be necessary. The default is 1, which is equivalent to previous behavior. Signed-off-by: Keith Busch <keith.busch@intel.com> Signed-off-by: Bjorn Helgaas <bhelgaas@google.com>

2016-07-10PM / hibernate: Image data protection during restorationRafael J. Wysocki
Make it possible to protect all pages holding image data during hibernate image restoration by setting them read-only (so as to catch attempts to write to those pages after image data have been stored in them). This adds overhead to image restoration code (it may cause large page mappings to be split as a result of page flags changes) and the errors it protects against should never happen in theory, so the feature is only active after passing hibernate=protect_image to the command line of the restore kernel. Also it only is built if CONFIG_DEBUG_RODATA is set. Signed-off-by: Rafael J. Wysocki <rafael.j.wysocki@intel.com>
2016-07-08efi / ACPI: load SSTDs from EFI variablesOctavian Purdila
This patch allows SSDTs to be loaded from EFI variables. It works by specifying the EFI variable name containing the SSDT to be loaded. All variables with the same name (regardless of the vendor GUID) will be loaded. Note that we can't use acpi_install_table and we must rely on the dynamic ACPI table loading and bus re-scanning mechanisms.

2016-07-05powerpc/mm: Add a parameter to disable 1TB segsOliver O'Halloran
This patch adds the kernel command line parameter "no_tb_segs" which forces the kernel to use 256MB rather than 1TB segments. Forcing the use of 256MB segments makes it considerably easier to test code that depends on an SLB miss occurring.

2016-06-29ACPI / APEI: Add Boot Error Record Table (BERT) supportHuang Ying
ACPI/APEI is designed to verifiy/report H/W errors, like Corrected Error(CE) and Uncorrected Error(UC). It contains four tables: HEST, ERST, EINJ and BERT. The first three tables have been merged for a long time, but because of lacking BIOS support for BERT, the support for BERT is pending until now. Recently on ARM 64 platform it is has been supported. So here we come. Under normal circumstances, when a hardware error occurs, kernel will be notified via NMI, MCE or some other method, then kernel will process the error condition, report it, and recover it if possible. But sometime, the situation is so bad, so that firmware may choose to reset directly without notifying Linux kernel. Linux kernel can use the Boot Error Record Table (BERT) to get the un-notified hardware errors that occurred in a previous boot. In this patch, the error information is reported via printk. For more information about BERT, please refer to ACPI Specification version 6.0, section 18.3.1: http://www.uefi.org/sites/default/files/resources/ACPI_6.0.pdf The following log is a BERT record after system reboot because of hitting a fatal memory error: BERT: Error records from previous boot: [Hardware Error]: It has been corrected by h/w and requires no further action [Hardware Error]: event severity: corrected [Hardware Error]: Error 0, type: recoverable [Hardware Error]: section_type: memory error [Hardware Error]: error_status: 0x0000000000000400 [Hardware Error]: physical_address: 0xffffffffffffffff [Hardware Error]: card: 1 module: 2 bank: 3 row: 1 column: 2 bit_position: 5 [Hardware Error]: error_type: 2, single-bit ECC [Tomasz Nowicki: Clear error status at the end of error handling] [Tony: Applied some cleanups suggested by Fu Wei] [Fu Wei: delete EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL(bert_disable), improve the code] Signed-off-by: Huang Ying <ying.huang@intel.com> Signed-off-by: Tomasz Nowicki <tomasz.nowicki@linaro.org> Signed-off-by: Chen, Gong <gong.chen@linux.intel.com> Tested-by: Jonathan (Zhixiong) Zhang <zjzhang@codeaurora.org> Signed-off-by: Fu Wei <fu.wei@linaro.org> Tested-by: Tyler Baicar <tbaicar@codeaurora.org> Reviewed-by: Borislav Petkov <bp@suse.de> Signed-off-by: Tony Luck <tony.luck@intel.com> Signed-off-by: Rafael J.

2016-06-28clocksource/drivers/arm_arch_timer: Control the evtstrm via the cmdlineWill Deacon
Disabling the eventstream can be useful for both remotely debugging a deployed production system and development of code using WFE-based polling loops. Whilst this can currently be controlled via a Kconfig option (CONFIG_ARM_ARCH_TIMER_EVTSTREAM), it's often desirable to toggle the feature on the command line, so this patch adds a new command-line option ("clocksource.arm_arch_timer.evtstrm") to do just that. The default behaviour is determined based on CONFIG_ARM_ARCH_TIMER_EVTSTREAM.
