ARM: 8465/1: mm: keep reserved ASIDs in sync with mm after multiple rollovers
Under some unusual context-switching patterns, it is possible to end up with multiple threads from the same mm running concurrently with different ASIDs: 1. CPU x schedules task t with mm p containing ASID a and generation g This task doesn't block and the CPU doesn't context switch. So: * per_cpu(active_asid, x) = {g,a} * p->context.id = {g,a} 2. Some other CPU generates an ASID rollover. The global generation is now (g + 1). CPU x is still running t, with no context switch and so per_cpu(reserved_asid, x) = {g,a} 3. CPU y schedules task t', which shares mm p with t. The generation mismatches, so we take the slowpath and hit the reserved ASID from CPU x. p is then updated so that p->context.id = {g + 1,a} 4. CPU y schedules some other task u, which has an mm != p. 5. Some other CPU generates *another* CPU rollover. The global generation is now (g + 2). CPU x is still running t, with no context switch and so per_cpu(reserved_asid, x) = {g,a}. 6. CPU y once again schedules task t', but now *fails* to hit the reserved ASID from CPU x because of the generation mismatch. This results in a new ASID being allocated, despite the fact that t is still running on CPU x with the same mm. Consequently, TLBIs (e.g. as a result of CoW) will not be synchronised between the two threads. This patch fixes the problem by updating all of the matching reserved ASIDs when we hit on the slowpath (i.e. in step 3 above). This keeps the reserved ASIDs in-sync with the mm and avoids the problem.
