2015-08-25ARM: uaccess: provide uaccess_save_and_enable() and uaccess_restore()Russell King
Provide uaccess_save_and_enable() and uaccess_restore() to permit control of userspace visibility to the kernel, and hook these into the appropriate places in the kernel where we need to access userspace. Signed-off-by: Russell King <rmk+kernel@arm.linux.org.uk>
2015-03-29ARM: 8322/1: keep .text and .fixup regions closer togetherArd Biesheuvel
This moves all fixup snippets to the .text.fixup section, which is a special section that gets emitted along with the .text section for each input object file, i.e., the snippets are kept much closer to the code they refer to, which helps prevent linker failure on large kernels.

2014-11-27ARM: 8225/1: Add unwinding support for memory copy functionsLin Yongting
The memory copy functions(memcpy, __copy_from_user, __copy_to_user) never had unwinding annotations added. Currently, when accessing invalid pointer by these functions occurs the backtrace shown will stop at these functions or some completely unrelated function. Add unwinding annotations in hopes of getting a more useful backtrace in following cases: 1. die on accessing invalid pointer by these functions 2. kprobe trapped at any instruction within these functions 3. interrupted at any instruction within these functions Signed-off-by: Lin Yongting <linyongting@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Russell King <rmk+kernel@arm.linux.org.uk>
2010-05-08ARM: 6110/1: Fix Thumb-2 kernel builds when UACCESS_WITH_MEMCPY is enabledCatalin Marinas
The patch adds the ENDPROC declarations for the __copy_to_user_std and __clear_user_std functions. Without these, the compiler generates BXL to ARM when compiling the kernel in Thumb-2 mode.

2010-04-21ARM: fix build error in arch/arm/kernel/process.cRussell King
/tmp/ccJ3ssZW.s: Assembler messages: /tmp/ccJ3ssZW.s:1952: Error: can't resolve `.text' {.text section} - `.LFB1077' This is caused because: .section .data .section .text .section .text .previous does not return us to the .text section, but the .data section; this makes use of .previous dangerous if the ordering of previous sections is not known. Fix up the other users of .previous; .pushsection and .popsection are a safer pairing to use than .section and .previous. Signed-off-by: Russell King <rmk+kernel@arm.linux.org.uk>
2009-07-24Thumb-2: Implement the unified arch/arm/lib functionsCatalin Marinas
This patch adds the ARM/Thumb-2 unified support for the arch/arm/lib/* files. Signed-off-by: Catalin Marinas <catalin.marinas@arm.com>
2009-05-29[ARM] allow for alternative __copy_to_user/__clear_user implementationsNicolas Pitre
This allows for optional alternative implementations of __copy_to_user and __clear_user, with a possible runtime fallback to the standard version when the alternative provides no gain over that standard version. This is done by making the standard __copy_to_user into a weak alias for the symbol __copy_to_user_std. Same thing for __clear_user. Those two functions are particularly good candidates to have alternative implementations for, since they rely on the STRT instruction which has lower performances than STM instructions on some CPU cores such as the ARM1176 and Marvell Feroceon.

2008-09-01[ARM] 5227/1: Add the ENDPROC declarations to the .S filesCatalin Marinas
This declaration specifies the "function" type and size for various assembly functions, mainly needed for generating the correct branch instructions in Thumb-2. Signed-off-by: Catalin Marinas <catalin.marinas@arm.com> Signed-off-by: Russell King <rmk+kernel@arm.linux.org.uk>
2006-06-28[ARM] Remove the __arch_* layer from uaccess.hRussell King
Back in the days when we had armo (26-bit) and armv (32-bit) combined, we had an additional layer to the uaccess macros to ensure correct typing. Since we no longer have 26-bit in this tree, we no longer need this layer, so eliminate it. Signed-off-by: Russell King <rmk+kernel@arm.linux.org.uk>
2005-11-01[ARM] 2948/1: new preemption safe copy_{to|from}_user implementationNicolas Pitre
Patch from Nicolas Pitre This patch provides a preemption safe implementation of copy_to_user and copy_from_user based on the copy template also used for memcpy. It is enabled unconditionally when CONFIG_PREEMPT=y. Otherwise if the configured architecture is not ARMv3 then it is enabled as well as it gives better performances at least on StrongARM and XScale cores. If ARMv3 is not too affected or if it doesn't matter too much then uaccess.S could be removed altogether.
