2013-04-05bonding: get netdev_rx_handler_unregister out of locksVeaceslav Falico
[ Upstream commit fcd99434fb5c137274d2e15dd2a6a7455f0f29ff ] Now that netdev_rx_handler_unregister contains synchronize_net(), we need to call it outside of bond->lock, cause it might sleep.

2013-04-05iommu/amd: Make sure dma_ops are set for hotplug devicesJoerg Roedel
commit c2a2876e863356b092967ea62bebdb4dd663af80 upstream. There is a bug introduced with commit 27c2127 that causes devices which are hot unplugged and then hot-replugged to not have per-device dma_ops set. This causes these devices to not function correctly. Fixed with this patch.

2013-04-05smsc75xx: fix jumbo frame supportSteve Glendinning
[ Upstream commit 4c51e53689569398d656e631c17308d9b8e84650 ] This patch enables RX of jumbo frames for LAN7500. Previously the driver would transmit jumbo frames succesfully but would drop received jumbo frames (incrementing the interface errors count). With this patch applied the device can succesfully receive jumbo frames up to MTU 9000 (9014 bytes on the wire including ethernet header).

2013-04-05net: add a synchronize_net() in netdev_rx_handler_unregister()Eric Dumazet
[ Upstream commit 00cfec37484761a44a3b6f4675a54caa618210ae ] commit 35d48903e97819 (bonding: fix rx_handler locking) added a race in bonding driver, reported by Steven Rostedt who did a very good diagnosis : <quoting Steven> I'm currently debugging a crash in an old 3.0-rt kernel that one of our customers is seeing. The bug happens with a stress test that loads and unloads the bonding module in a loop (I don't know all the details as I'm not the one that is directly interacting with the customer). But the bug looks to be something that may still be present and possibly present in mainline too. It will just be much harder to trigger it in mainline. In -rt, interrupts are threads, and can schedule in and out just like any other thread. Note, mainline now supports interrupt threads so this may be easily reproducible in mainline as well. I don't have the ability to tell the customer to try mainline or other kernels, so my hands are somewhat tied to what I can do. But according to a core dump, I tracked down that the eth irq thread crashed in bond_handle_frame() here: slave = bond_slave_get_rcu(skb->dev); bond = slave->bond; <--- BUG the slave returned was NULL and accessing slave->bond caused a NULL pointer dereference. Looking at the code that unregisters the handler: void netdev_rx_handler_unregister(struct net_device *dev) { ASSERT_RTNL(); RCU_INIT_POINTER(dev->rx_handler, NULL); RCU_INIT_POINTER(dev->rx_handler_data, NULL); } Which is basically: dev->rx_handler = NULL; dev->rx_handler_data = NULL; And looking at __netif_receive_skb() we have: rx_handler = rcu_dereference(skb->dev->rx_handler); if (rx_handler) { if (pt_prev) { ret = deliver_skb(skb, pt_prev, orig_dev); pt_prev = NULL; } switch (rx_handler(&skb)) { My question to all of you is, what stops this interrupt from happening while the bonding module is unloading? What happens if the interrupt triggers and we have this: CPU0 CPU1 ---- ---- rx_handler = skb->dev->rx_handler netdev_rx_handler_unregister() { dev->rx_handler = NULL; dev->rx_handler_data = NULL; rx_handler() bond_handle_frame() { slave = skb->dev->rx_handler; bond = slave->bond; <-- NULL pointer dereference!!! What protection am I missing in the bond release handler that would prevent the above from happening? </quoting Steven> We can fix bug this in two ways. First is adding a test in bond_handle_frame() and others to check if rx_handler_data is NULL. A second way is adding a synchronize_net() in netdev_rx_handler_unregister() to make sure that a rcu protected reader has the guarantee to see a non NULL rx_handler_data. The second way is better as it avoids an extra test in fast path.

2013-04-05unix: fix a race condition in unix_release()Paul Moore
[ Upstream commit ded34e0fe8fe8c2d595bfa30626654e4b87621e0 ] As reported by Jan, and others over the past few years, there is a race condition caused by unix_release setting the sock->sk pointer to NULL before properly marking the socket as dead/orphaned. This can cause a problem with the LSM hook security_unix_may_send() if there is another socket attempting to write to this partially released socket in between when sock->sk is set to NULL and it is marked as dead/orphaned. This patch fixes this by only setting sock->sk to NULL after the socket has been marked as dead; I also take the opportunity to make unix_release_sock() a void function as it only ever returned 0/success. Dave, I think this one should go on the -stable pile. Special thanks to Jan for coming up with a reproducer for this problem.

2013-04-05efivars: explicitly calculate length of VariableNameMatt Fleming
commit ec50bd32f1672d38ddce10fb1841cbfda89cfe9a upstream. It's not wise to assume VariableNameSize represents the length of VariableName, as not all firmware updates VariableNameSize in the same way (some don't update it at all if EFI_SUCCESS is returned). There are even implementations out there that update VariableNameSize with values that are both larger than the string returned in VariableName and smaller than the buffer passed to GetNextVariableName(), which resulted in the following bug report from Michael Schroeder, > On HP z220 system (firmware version 1.54), some EFI variables are > incorrectly named : > > ls -d /sys/firmware/efi/vars/*8be4d* | grep -v -- -8be returns > /sys/firmware/efi/vars/dbxDefault-pport8be4df61-93ca-11d2-aa0d-00e098032b8c > /sys/firmware/efi/vars/KEKDefault-pport8be4df61-93ca-11d2-aa0d-00e098032b8c > /sys/firmware/efi/vars/SecureBoot-pport8be4df61-93ca-11d2-aa0d-00e098032b8c > /sys/firmware/efi/vars/SetupMode-Information8be4df61-93ca-11d2-aa0d-00e098032b8c The issue here is that because we blindly use VariableNameSize without verifying its value, we can potentially read garbage values from the buffer containing VariableName if VariableNameSize is larger than the length of VariableName.

2013-04-05loop: prevent bdev freeing while device in useAnatol Pomozov
commit c1681bf8a7b1b98edee8b862a42c19c4e53205fd upstream. struct block_device lifecycle is defined by its inode (see fs/block_dev.c) - block_device allocated first time we access /dev/loopXX and deallocated on bdev_destroy_inode. When we create the device "losetup /dev/loopXX afile" we want that block_device stay alive until we destroy the loop device with "losetup -d". But because we do not hold /dev/loopXX inode its counter goes 0, and inode/bdev can be destroyed at any moment. Usually it happens at memory pressure or when user drops inode cache (like in the test below). When later in loop_clr_fd() we want to use bdev we have use-after-free error with following stack: BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 0000000000000280 bd_set_size+0x10/0xa0 loop_clr_fd+0x1f8/0x420 [loop] lo_ioctl+0x200/0x7e0 [loop] lo_compat_ioctl+0x47/0xe0 [loop] compat_blkdev_ioctl+0x341/0x1290 do_filp_open+0x42/0xa0 compat_sys_ioctl+0xc1/0xf20 do_sys_open+0x16e/0x1d0 sysenter_dispatch+0x7/0x1a To prevent use-after-free we need to grab the device in loop_set_fd() and put it later in loop_clr_fd(). The issue is reprodusible on current Linus head and v3.3. Here is the test: dd if=/dev/zero of=loop.file bs=1M count=1 while [ true ]; do losetup /dev/loop0 loop.file echo 2 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches losetup -d /dev/loop0 done [ Doing bdgrab/bput in loop_set_fd/loop_clr_fd is safe, because every time we call loop_set_fd() we check that loop_device->lo_state is Lo_unbound and set it to Lo_bound If somebody will try to set_fd again it will get EBUSY. And if we try to loop_clr_fd() on unbound loop device we'll get ENXIO. loop_set_fd/loop_clr_fd (and any other loop ioctl) is called under loop_device->lo_ctl_mutex. ] Signed-off-by: Anatol Pomozov <anatol.pomozov@gmail.com> Cc: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@linuxfoundation.org>

2013-04-05mm/hotplug: correctly add new zone to all other nodes' zone listsJiang Liu
commit 08dff7b7d629807dbb1f398c68dd9cd58dd657a1 upstream. When online_pages() is called to add new memory to an empty zone, it rebuilds all zone lists by calling build_all_zonelists(). But there's a bug which prevents the new zone to be added to other nodes' zone lists. online_pages() { build_all_zonelists() ..... node_set_state(zone_to_nid(zone), N_HIGH_MEMORY) } Here the node of the zone is put into N_HIGH_MEMORY state after calling build_all_zonelists(), but build_all_zonelists() only adds zones from nodes in N_HIGH_MEMORY state to the fallback zone lists. build_all_zonelists() ->__build_all_zonelists() ->build_zonelists() ->find_next_best_node() ->for_each_node_state(n, N_HIGH_MEMORY) So memory in the new zone will never be used by other nodes, and it may cause strange behavor when system is under memory pressure. So put node into N_HIGH_MEMORY state before calling build_all_zonelists().

commit cb101ed2c3c7c0224d16953fe77bfb9d6c2cb9df upstream. There are multiple locations in the X.25 packet layer where a skb is assumed to be of at least a certain size and that all its data is currently available at skb->data. These assumptions are not checked, hence buffer overreads may occur. Use pskb_may_pull to check these minimal size assumptions and ensure that data is available at skb->data when necessary, as well as use skb_copy_bits where needed.

2013-04-05x25: Validate incoming call user data lengthsMatthew Daley
commit c7fd0d48bde943e228e9c28ce971a22d6a1744c4 upstream. X.25 call user data is being copied in its entirety from incoming messages without consideration to the size of the destination buffers, leading to possible buffer overflows. Validate incoming call user data lengths before these copies are performed. It appears this issue was noticed some time ago, however nothing seemed to come of it: see http://www.spinics.net/lists/linux-x25/msg00043.html and commit 8db09f26f912f7c90c764806e804b558da520d4f.

commit d780592b99d7d8a5ff905f6bacca519d4a342c76 upstream. So far kvm_arch_vcpu_setup is responsible for freeing the vcpu struct if it fails. Move this confusing resonsibility back into the hands of kvm_vm_ioctl_create_vcpu. Only kvm_arch_vcpu_setup of x86 is affected, all other archs cannot fail.

2013-04-05Btrfs: limit the global reserve to 512mbJosef Bacik
commit fdf30d1c1b386e1b73116cc7e0fb14e962b763b0 upstream. A user reported a problem where he was getting early ENOSPC with hundreds of gigs of free data space and 6 gigs of free metadata space. This is because the global block reserve was taking up the entire free metadata space. This is ridiculous, we have infrastructure in place to throttle if we start using too much of the global reserve, so instead of letting it get this huge just limit it to 512mb so that users can still get work done. This allowed the user to complete his rsync without issues.

2013-04-05usb: xhci: Fix TRB transfer length macro used for Event TRB.Vivek Gautam
commit 1c11a172cb30492f5f6a82c6e118fdcd9946c34f upstream. Use proper macro while extracting TRB transfer length from Transfer event TRBs. Adding a macro EVENT_TRB_LEN (bits 0:23) for the same, and use it instead of TRB_LEN (bits 0:16) in case of event TRBs. This patch should be backported to kernels as old as 2.6.31, that contain the commit b10de142119a676552df3f0d2e3a9d647036c26a "USB: xhci: Bulk transfer support".

commit 084c7189acb3f969c855536166042e27f5dd703f upstream. curr_cmd points to the command that is in processing or waiting for its command response from firmware. If the function shutdown happens to occur at this time we should cancel the cmd timer and put the command back to free queue.

Commit 7708992 ("xen/blkback: Seperate the bio allocation and the bio submission") consolidated the pendcnt updates to just a single write, neglecting the fact that the error path relied on it getting set to 1 up front (such that the decrement in __end_block_io_op() would actually drop the count to zero, triggering the necessary cleanup actions). Also remove a misleading and a stale (after said commit) comment.

2013-04-05b43: A fix for DMA transmission sequence errorsIestyn C. Elfick
commit b251412db99ccd4495ce372fec7daee27bf06923 upstream. Intermittently, b43 will report "Out of order TX status report on DMA ring". When this happens, the driver must be reset before communication can resume. The cause of the problem is believed to be an error in the closed-source firmware; however, all versions of the firmware are affected. This change uses the observation that the expected status is always 2 less than the observed value, and supplies a fake status report to skip one header/data pair. Not all devices suffer from this problem, but it can occur several times per second under heavy load. As each occurence kills the unmodified driver, this patch makes if possible for the affected devices to function. The patch logs only the first instance of the reset operation to prevent spamming the logs.

2013-04-05sysfs: handle failure path correctly for readdir()Ming Lei
commit e5110f411d2ee35bf8d202ccca2e89c633060dca upstream. In case of 'if (filp->f_pos == 0 or 1)' of sysfs_readdir(), the failure from filldir() isn't handled, and the reference counter of the sysfs_dirent object pointed by filp->private_data will be released without clearing filp->private_data, so use after free bug will be triggered later. This patch returns immeadiately under the situation for fixing the bug, and it is reasonable to return from readdir() when filldir() fails.
