2007-09-20SELinux: fix array out of bounds when mounting with selinux optionsEric Paris
Given an illegal selinux option it was possible for match_token to work in random memory at the end of the match_table_t array. Note that privilege is required to perform a context mount, so this issue is effectively limited to root only.

2007-09-19sched: fix invalid sched_class useHiroshi Shimamoto
When using rt_mutex, a NULL pointer dereference is occurred at enqueue_task_rt. Here is a scenario; 1) there are two threads, the thread A is fair_sched_class and thread B is rt_sched_class. 2) Thread A is boosted up to rt_sched_class, because the thread A has a rt_mutex lock and the thread B is waiting the lock. 3) At this time, when thread A create a new thread C, the thread C has a rt_sched_class. 4) When doing wake_up_new_task() for the thread C, the priority of the thread C is out of the RT priority range, because the normal priority of thread A is not the RT priority. It makes data corruption by overflowing the rt_prio_array. The new thread C should be fair_sched_class. The new thread should be valid scheduler class before queuing. This patch fixes to set the suitable scheduler class.

2007-09-19x86-64: page faults from user mode are always user faultsLinus Torvalds
Randy Dunlap noticed an interesting "crashme" behaviour on his dual Prescott Xeon setup, where he gets page faults with the error code having a zero "user" bit, but the register state points back to user mode. This may be a CPU microcode buglet triggered by some strange instruction pattern that crashme generates, and loading a microcode update seems to possibly have fixed it. Regardless, we really should trust the register state more than the error code, since it's really the register state that determines whether we can actually send a signal, or whether we're in kernel mode and need to oops/kill the process in the case of a page fault.

2007-09-19uml: fix irqstack crashJeff Dike
This patch fixes a crash caused by an interrupt coming in when an IRQ stack is being torn down. When this happens, handle_signal will loop, setting up the IRQ stack again because the tearing down had finished, and handling whatever signals had come in. However, to_irq_stack returns a mask of pending signals to be handled, plus bit zero is set if the IRQ stack was already active, and thus shouldn't be torn down. This causes a problem because when handle_signal goes around the loop, sig will be zero, and to_irq_stack will duly set bit zero in the returned mask, faking handle_signal into believing that it shouldn't tear down the IRQ stack and return thread_info pointers back to their original values. This will eventually cause a crash, as the IRQ stack thread_info will continue pointing to the original task_struct and an interrupt will look into it after it has been freed. The fix is to stop passing a signal number into to_irq_stack. Rather, the pending signals mask is initialized beforehand with the bit for sig already set. References to sig in to_irq_stack can be replaced with references to the mask.

2007-09-19Fix NUMA Memory Policy Reference CountingLee Schermerhorn
This patch proposes fixes to the reference counting of memory policy in the page allocation paths and in show_numa_map(). Extracted from my "Memory Policy Cleanups and Enhancements" series as stand-alone. Shared policy lookup [shmem] has always added a reference to the policy, but this was never unrefed after page allocation or after formatting the numa map data. Default system policy should not require additional ref counting, nor should the current task's task policy. However, show_numa_map() calls get_vma_policy() to examine what may be [likely is] another task's policy. The latter case needs protection against freeing of the policy. This patch adds a reference count to a mempolicy returned by get_vma_policy() when the policy is a vma policy or another task's mempolicy. Again, shared policy is already reference counted on lookup. A matching "unref" [__mpol_free()] is performed in alloc_page_vma() for shared and vma policies, and in show_numa_map() for shared and another task's mempolicy. We can call __mpol_free() directly, saving an admittedly inexpensive inline NULL test, because we know we have a non-NULL policy. Handling policy ref counts for hugepages is a bit trickier. huge_zonelist() returns a zone list that might come from a shared or vma 'BIND policy. In this case, we should hold the reference until after the huge page allocation in dequeue_hugepage(). The patch modifies huge_zonelist() to return a pointer to the mempolicy if it needs to be unref'd after allocation.

2007-09-19Fix user namespace exiting OOPsPavel Emelyanov
It turned out, that the user namespace is released during the do_exit() in exit_task_namespaces(), but the struct user_struct is released only during the put_task_struct(), i.e. MUCH later. On debug kernels with poisoned slabs this will cause the oops in uid_hash_remove() because the head of the chain, which resides inside the struct user_namespace, will be already freed and poisoned. Since the uid hash itself is required only when someone can search it, i.e. when the namespace is alive, we can safely unhash all the user_struct-s from it during the namespace exiting. The subsequent free_uid() will complete the user_struct destruction. For example simple program #include <sched.h> char stack[2 * 1024 * 1024]; int f(void *foo) { return 0; } int main(void) { clone(f, stack + 1 * 1024 * 1024, 0x10000000, 0); return 0; } run on kernel with CONFIG_USER_NS turned on will oops the kernel immediately.

2007-09-19ext34: ensure do_split leaves enough free space in both blocksEric Sandeen
The do_split() function for htree dir blocks is intended to split a leaf block to make room for a new entry. It sorts the entries in the original block by hash value, then moves the last half of the entries to the new block - without accounting for how much space this actually moves. (IOW, it moves half of the entry *count* not half of the entry *space*). If by chance we have both large & small entries, and we move only the smallest entries, and we have a large new entry to insert, we may not have created enough space for it. The patch below stores each record size when calculating the dx_map, and then walks the hash-sorted dx_map, calculating how many entries must be moved to more evenly split the existing entries between the old block and the new block, guaranteeing enough space for the new entry. The dx_map "offs" member is reduced to u16 so that the overall map size does not change - it is temporarily stored at the end of the new block, and if it grows too large it may be overwritten. By making offs and size both u16, we won't grow the map size. Also add a few comments to the functions involved. This fixes the testcase reported by hooanon05@yahoo.co.jp on the linux-ext4 list, "ext3 dir_index causes an error" Thanks to Andreas Dilger for discussing the problem & solution with me.

2007-09-19mspec: handle shrinking virtual memory areasCliff Wickman
The shrinking of a virtual memory area that is mmap(2)'d to a memory special file (device drivers/char/mspec.c) can cause a panic. If the mapped size of the vma (vm_area_struct) is very large, mspec allocates a large vma_data structure with vmalloc(). But such a vma can be shrunk by an munmap(2). The current driver uses the current size of each vma to deduce whether its vma_data structure was allocated by kmalloc() or vmalloc(). So if the vma was shrunk it appears to have been allocated by kmalloc(), and mspec attempts to free it with kfree(). This results in a panic. This patch avoids the panic (by preserving the type of the allocation) and also makes mspec work correctly as the vma is split into pieces by the munmap(2)'s. All vma's derived from such a split vma share the same vma_data structure that represents all the pages mapped into this set of vma's. The mpec driver must be made capable of using the right portion of the structure for each member vma. In other words, it must index into the array of page addresses using the portion of the array that represents the current vma. This is enabled by storing the vma group's vm_start in the vma_data structure. The shared vma_data's are not protected by mm->mmap_sem in the fork() case so the reference count is left as atomic_t.

2007-09-19uml: use correct type in BLKGETSIZE ioctlNicolas George
I found a type mismatch in UML that makes host block devices unusable as ubd devices on x86_64 and other 64 bits systems (segfault of the mm subsystem): In block/ioctl.c, the following lines show that the BLKGETSIZE ioctl expects a pointer to a long: case BLKGETSIZE: if ((bdev->bd_inode->i_size >> 9) > ~0UL) return -EFBIG; return put_ulong(arg, bdev->bd_inode->i_size >> 9); In arch/um/os-Linux/file.c, os_file_size calls it with an int. The ioctl_list man page should be fixed as well.

Recent changes to the timekeeping code broke support for the PowerPC 601 processor which doesn't have the usual timebase facility but a slightly different thing called (yuck) the RTC.

find_victim can dereference a NULL pointer when iterating over the list of victim spus because list_mutex only guarantees spu->ct to be stable, but of course not to be non-NULL. Also fix find_victim to not call spu_unbind_context without list_mutex because that violates the above guarantee.

2007-09-17[SUNSAB]: Fix several bugs.Al Viro
* don't register irq until ->startup() (and release in ->shutdown()). That avoids oopsen with the current tree when interrupt comes before we'd set up the data structures for ttyb. * handle console=ttyS... even when OBP talks to screen/keyboard * register irq handler for each port, let kernel/irq/handle.c call it for both if needed. Kills code duplication in sunsab_interrupt(). BTW, there'd been bitrot in it - ttya handling had stopped calling check_status() on BRK (correctly), ttyb copy of that code had kept the bogus call in that case.

2007-09-17ACPI: thinkpad-acpi: revert new 2.6.23 CONFIG_THINKPAD_ACPI_INPUT_ENABLED optionHenrique de Moraes Holschuh
Revert new 2.6.23 CONFIG_THINKPAD_ACPI_INPUT_ENABLED Kconfig option because it would create a legacy we don't want to support. CONFIG_THINKPAD_ACPI_INPUT_ENABLED was added to try to fix an issue that is now moot with the addition of the netlink ACPI event report interface to the ACPI core. Now that ACPI core can send events over netlink, we can use a different strategy to keep backwards compatibility with older userspace, without the need for the CONFIG_THINKPAD_ACPI_INPUT_ENABLED games. And it arrived before CONFIG_THINKPAD_ACPI_INPUT_ENABLED made it to a stable mainline kernel, even, which is Good. This patch is in sync with some changes to thinkpad-acpi backports, that will keep things sane for userspace across different combinations of kernel versions, thinkpad-acpi backports (or the lack thereof), and userspace capabilities: Unless a module parameter is used, thinkpad-acpi will now behave in such a way that it will work well (by default) with userspace that still uses only the old ACPI procfs event interface and doesn't care for thinkpad-acpi input devices. It will also always work well with userspace that has been updated to use both the thinkpad-acpi input devices, and ACPI core netlink event interface, regardless of any module parameter. The module parameter was added to allow thinkpad-acpi to work with userspace that has been partially updated to use thinkpad-acpi input devices, but not the new ACPI core netlink event interface. To use this mode of hot key reporting, one has to specify the hotkey_report_mode=2 module parameter. The thinkpad-acpi driver exports the value of hotkey_report_mode through sysfs, as well. thinkpad-acpi backports to older kernels, that do not support the new ACPI core netlink interface, have code to allow userspace to switch hotkey_report_mode at runtime through sysfs. This capability will not be provided in mainline thinkpad-acpi as it is not needed there. Signed-off-by: Henrique de Moraes Holschuh <hmh@hmh.eng.br> Cc: Michael S.
