2012-04-23asm-generic: Allow overriding clock_t and add attributes to siginfo_tH. Peter Anvin
For the particular issue of x32, which shares code with i386 in the handling of compat_siginfo_t, the use of a 64-bit clock_t bumps the sigchld structure out of alignment, which triggers a messy cascade of padding. This was already handled on the kernel compat side, but it needs handling on the user space side, which uses the generic header. To make that possible: 1. Allow __kernel_clock_t to be overridden in struct siginfo; 2. Allow there to be attributes added to struct siginfo. Reported-by: H.J. Lu <hjl.rools@gmail.com> Cc: Bruce J.

2012-04-14seccomp: Add SECCOMP_RET_TRAPWill Drewry
Adds a new return value to seccomp filters that triggers a SIGSYS to be delivered with the new SYS_SECCOMP si_code. This allows in-process system call emulation, including just specifying an errno or cleanly dumping core, rather than just dying.

2012-04-14signal, x86: add SIGSYS info and make it synchronous.Will Drewry
This change enables SIGSYS, defines _sigfields._sigsys, and adds x86 (compat) arch support. _sigsys defines fields which allow a signal handler to receive the triggering system call number, the relevant AUDIT_ARCH_* value for that number, and the address of the callsite. SIGSYS is added to the SYNCHRONOUS_MASK because it is desirable for it to have setup_frame() called for it. The goal is to ensure that ucontext_t reflects the machine state from the time-of-syscall and not from another signal handler. The first consumer of SIGSYS would be seccomp filter. In particular, a filter program could specify a new return value, SECCOMP_RET_TRAP, which would result in the system call being denied and the calling thread signaled. This also means that implementing arch-specific support can be dependent upon HAVE_ARCH_SECCOMP_FILTER. Suggested-by: H.

2009-09-16HWPOISON: Add new SIGBUS error codes for hardware poison signalsAndi Kleen
Add new SIGBUS codes for reporting machine checks as signals. When the hardware detects an uncorrected ECC error it can trigger these signals. This is needed for telling KVM's qemu about machine checks that happen to guests, so that it can inject them, but might be also useful for other programs. I find it useful in my test programs. This patch merely defines the new types. - Define two new si_codes for SIGBUS. BUS_MCEERR_AO and BUS_MCEERR_AR * BUS_MCEERR_AO is for "Action Optional" machine checks, which means that some corruption has been detected in the background, but nothing has been consumed so far. The program can ignore those if it wants (but most programs would already get killed) * BUS_MCEERR_AR is for "Action Required" machine checks. This happens when corrupted data is consumed or the application ran into an area which has been known to be corrupted earlier. These require immediate action and cannot just returned to. Most programs would kill themselves. - They report the address of the corruption in the user address space in si_addr. - Define a new si_addr_lsb field that reports the extent of the corruption to user space. That's currently always a (small) page. The user application cannot tell where in this page the corruption happened. AK: I plan to write a man page update before anyone asks.

2009-03-26make exported headers use strict posix typesArnd Bergmann
A number of standard posix types are used in exported headers, which is not allowed if __STRICT_KERNEL_NAMES is defined. In order to get rid of the non-__STRICT_KERNEL_NAMES part and to make sane headers the default, we have to change them all to safe types. There are also still some leftovers in reiserfs_fs.h, elfcore.h and coda.h, but these files have not compiled in user space for a long time. This leaves out the various integer types ({u_,u,}int{8,16,32,64}_t), which we take care of separately.

2008-09-23signals: demultiplexing SIGTRAP signalSrinivasa Ds
Currently a SIGTRAP can denote any one of below reasons. - Breakpoint hit - H/W debug register hit - Single step - Signal sent through kill() or rasie() Architectures like powerpc/parisc provides infrastructure to demultiplex SIGTRAP signal by passing down the information for receiving SIGTRAP through si_code of siginfot_t structure. Here is an attempt is generalise this infrastructure by extending it to x86 and x86_64 archs.

2005-04-16Linux-2.6.12-rc2v2.6.12-rc2Linus Torvalds
Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!
