2013-10-19static_key: WARN on usage before jump_label_init was calledHannes Frederic Sowa1-0/+5
Usage of the static key primitives to toggle a branch must not be used before jump_label_init() is called from init/main.c. jump_label_init reorganizes and wires up the jump_entries so usage before that could have unforeseen consequences. Following primitives are now checked for correct use: * static_key_slow_inc * static_key_slow_dec * static_key_slow_dec_deferred * jump_label_rate_limit The x86 architecture already checks this by testing if the default_nop was already replaced with an optimal nop or with a branch instruction. It will panic then. Other architectures don't check for this. Because we need to relax this check for the x86 arch to allow code to transition from default_nop to the enabled state and other architectures did not check for this at all this patch introduces checking on the static_key primitives in a non-arch dependent manner. All checked functions are considered slow-path so the additional check does no harm to performance. The warnings are best observed with earlyprintk. Based on a patch from Andi Kleen.

2013-10-13cgroup: fix to break the while loop in cgroup_attach_task() correctlyAnjana V Kumar1-3/+3
Both Anjana and Eunki reported a stall in the while_each_thread loop in cgroup_attach_task(). It's because, when we attach a single thread to a cgroup, if the cgroup is exiting or is already in that cgroup, we won't break the loop. If the task is already in the cgroup, the bug can lead to another thread being attached to the cgroup unexpectedly: # echo 5207 > tasks # cat tasks 5207 # echo 5207 > tasks # cat tasks 5207 5215 What's worse, if the task to be attached isn't the leader of the thread group, we might never exit the loop, hence cpu stall. Thanks for Oleg's analysis. This bug was introduced by commit 081aa458c38ba576bdd4265fc807fa95b48b9e79 ("cgroup: consolidate cgroup_attach_task() and cgroup_attach_proc()") [ lizf: - fixed the first continue, pointed out by Oleg, - rewrote changelog. ] Cc: <stable@vger.kernel.org> # 3.9+ Reported-by: Eunki Kim <eunki_kim@samsung.com> Reported-by: Anjana V Kumar <anjanavk12@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Anjana V Kumar <anjanavk12@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Li Zefan <lizefan@huawei.com> Signed-off-by: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org>

Pull ACPI and power management fixes from Rafael Wysocki: - The resume part of user space driven hibernation (s2disk) is now broken after the change that moved the creation of memory bitmaps to after the freezing of tasks, because I forgot that the resume utility loaded the image before freezing tasks and needed the bitmaps for that. The fix adds special handling for that case. - One of recent commits changed the export of acpi_bus_get_device() to EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL(), which was technically correct but broke existing binary modules using that function including one in particularly widespread use.

2013-10-04perf: Fix perf_pmu_migrate_contextPeter Zijlstra1-3/+3
While auditing the list_entry usage due to a trinity bug I found that perf_pmu_migrate_context violates the rules for perf_event::event_entry. The problem is that perf_event::event_entry is a RCU list element, and hence we must wait for a full RCU grace period before re-using the element after deletion. Therefore the usage in perf_pmu_migrate_context() which re-uses the entry immediately is broken. For now introduce another list_head into perf_event for this specific usage. This doesn't actually fix the trinity report because that never goes through this code.

2013-10-01irq: Force hardirq exit's softirq processing on its own stackFrederic Weisbecker1-3/+12
The commit facd8b80c67a3cf64a467c4a2ac5fb31f2e6745b ("irq: Sanitize invoke_softirq") converted irq exit calls of do_softirq() to __do_softirq() on all architectures, assuming it was only used there for its irq disablement properties. But as a side effect, the softirqs processed in the end of the hardirq are always called on the inline current stack that is used by irq_exit() instead of the softirq stack provided by the archs that override do_softirq(). The result is mostly safe if the architecture runs irq_exit() on a separate irq stack because then softirqs are processed on that same stack that is near empty at this stage (assuming hardirq aren't nesting). Otherwise irq_exit() runs in the task stack and so does the softirq too. The interrupted call stack can be randomly deep already and the softirq can dig through it even further. To add insult to the injury, this softirq can be interrupted by a new hardirq, maximizing the chances for a stack overrun as reported in powerpc for example: do_IRQ: stack overflow: 1920 CPU: 0 PID: 1602 Comm: qemu-system-ppc Not tainted 3.10.4-300.1.fc19.ppc64p7 #1 Call Trace: [c0000000050a8740] .show_stack+0x130/0x200 (unreliable) [c0000000050a8810] .dump_stack+0x28/0x3c [c0000000050a8880] .do_IRQ+0x2b8/0x2c0 [c0000000050a8930] hardware_interrupt_common+0x154/0x180 --- Exception: 501 at .cp_start_xmit+0x3a4/0x820 [8139cp] LR = .cp_start_xmit+0x390/0x820 [8139cp] [c0000000050a8d40] .dev_hard_start_xmit+0x394/0x640 [c0000000050a8e00] .sch_direct_xmit+0x110/0x260 [c0000000050a8ea0] .dev_queue_xmit+0x260/0x630 [c0000000050a8f40] .br_dev_queue_push_xmit+0xc4/0x130 [bridge] [c0000000050a8fc0] .br_dev_xmit+0x198/0x270 [bridge] [c0000000050a9070] .dev_hard_start_xmit+0x394/0x640 [c0000000050a9130] .dev_queue_xmit+0x428/0x630 [c0000000050a91d0] .ip_finish_output+0x2a4/0x550 [c0000000050a9290] .ip_local_out+0x50/0x70 [c0000000050a9310] .ip_queue_xmit+0x148/0x420 [c0000000050a93b0] .tcp_transmit_skb+0x4e4/0xaf0 [c0000000050a94a0] .__tcp_ack_snd_check+0x7c/0xf0 [c0000000050a9520] .tcp_rcv_established+0x1e8/0x930 [c0000000050a95f0] .tcp_v4_do_rcv+0x21c/0x570 [c0000000050a96c0] .tcp_v4_rcv+0x734/0x930 [c0000000050a97a0] .ip_local_deliver_finish+0x184/0x360 [c0000000050a9840] .ip_rcv_finish+0x148/0x400 [c0000000050a98d0] .__netif_receive_skb_core+0x4f8/0xb00 [c0000000050a99d0] .netif_receive_skb+0x44/0x110 [c0000000050a9a70] .br_handle_frame_finish+0x2bc/0x3f0 [bridge] [c0000000050a9b20] .br_nf_pre_routing_finish+0x2ac/0x420 [bridge] [c0000000050a9bd0] .br_nf_pre_routing+0x4dc/0x7d0 [bridge] [c0000000050a9c70] .nf_iterate+0x114/0x130 [c0000000050a9d30] .nf_hook_slow+0xb4/0x1e0 [c0000000050a9e00] .br_handle_frame+0x290/0x330 [bridge] [c0000000050a9ea0] .__netif_receive_skb_core+0x34c/0xb00 [c0000000050a9fa0] .netif_receive_skb+0x44/0x110 [c0000000050aa040] .napi_gro_receive+0xe8/0x120 [c0000000050aa0c0] .cp_rx_poll+0x31c/0x590 [8139cp] [c0000000050aa1d0] .net_rx_action+0x1dc/0x310 [c0000000050aa2b0] .__do_softirq+0x158/0x330 [c0000000050aa3b0] .irq_exit+0xc8/0x110 [c0000000050aa430] .do_IRQ+0xdc/0x2c0 [c0000000050aa4e0] hardware_interrupt_common+0x154/0x180 --- Exception: 501 at .bad_range+0x1c/0x110 LR = .get_page_from_freelist+0x908/0xbb0 [c0000000050aa7d0] .list_del+0x18/0x50 (unreliable) [c0000000050aa850] .get_page_from_freelist+0x908/0xbb0 [c0000000050aa9e0] .__alloc_pages_nodemask+0x21c/0xae0 [c0000000050aaba0] .alloc_pages_vma+0xd0/0x210 [c0000000050aac60] .handle_pte_fault+0x814/0xb70 [c0000000050aad50] .__get_user_pages+0x1a4/0x640 [c0000000050aae60] .get_user_pages_fast+0xec/0x160 [c0000000050aaf10] .__gfn_to_pfn_memslot+0x3b0/0x430 [kvm] [c0000000050aafd0] .kvmppc_gfn_to_pfn+0x64/0x130 [kvm] [c0000000050ab070] .kvmppc_mmu_map_page+0x94/0x530 [kvm] [c0000000050ab190] .kvmppc_handle_pagefault+0x174/0x610 [kvm] [c0000000050ab270] .kvmppc_handle_exit_pr+0x464/0x9b0 [kvm] [c0000000050ab320] kvm_start_lightweight+0x1ec/0x1fc [kvm] [c0000000050ab4f0] .kvmppc_vcpu_run_pr+0x168/0x3b0 [kvm] [c0000000050ab9c0] .kvmppc_vcpu_run+0xc8/0xf0 [kvm] [c0000000050aba50] .kvm_arch_vcpu_ioctl_run+0x5c/0x1a0 [kvm] [c0000000050abae0] .kvm_vcpu_ioctl+0x478/0x730 [kvm] [c0000000050abc90] .do_vfs_ioctl+0x4ec/0x7c0 [c0000000050abd80] .SyS_ioctl+0xd4/0xf0 [c0000000050abe30] syscall_exit+0x0/0x98 Since this is a regression, this patch proposes a minimalistic and low-risk solution by blindly forcing the hardirq exit processing of softirqs on the softirq stack.

This bug seems to exist since 2.6.19 (the version which core dump to pipe was added).

2013-09-30PM / hibernate: Fix user space driven resume regressionRafael J. Wysocki2-1/+12
Recent commit 8fd37a4 (PM / hibernate: Create memory bitmaps after freezing user space) broke the resume part of the user space driven hibernation (s2disk), because I forgot that the resume utility loaded the image into memory without freezing user space (it still freezes tasks after loading the image). This means that during user space driven resume we need to create the memory bitmaps at the "device open" time rather than at the "freeze tasks" time, so make that happen (that's a special case anyway, so it needs to be treated in a special way).

2013-09-24watchdog: update watchdog_thresh properlyMichal Hocko1-3/+50
watchdog_tresh controls how often nmi perf event counter checks per-cpu hrtimer_interrupts counter and blows up if the counter hasn't changed since the last check. The counter is updated by per-cpu watchdog_hrtimer hrtimer which is scheduled with 2/5 watchdog_thresh period which guarantees that hrtimer is scheduled 2 times per the main period. Both hrtimer and perf event are started together when the watchdog is enabled. So far so good. But... But what happens when watchdog_thresh is updated from sysctl handler? proc_dowatchdog will set a new sampling period and hrtimer callback (watchdog_timer_fn) will use the new value in the next round. The problem, however, is that nobody tells the perf event that the sampling period has changed so it is ticking with the period configured when it has been set up. This might result in an ear ripping dissonance between perf and hrtimer parts if the watchdog_thresh is increased. And even worse it might lead to KABOOM if the watchdog is configured to panic on such a spurious lockup. This patch fixes the issue by updating both nmi perf even counter and hrtimers if the threshold value has changed. The nmi one is disabled and then reinitialized from scratch. This has an unpleasant side effect that the allocation of the new event might fail theoretically so the hard lockup detector would be disabled for such cpus. On the other hand such a memory allocation failure is very unlikely because the original event is deallocated right before. It would be much nicer if we just changed perf event period but there doesn't seem to be any API to do that right now. It is also unfortunate that perf_event_alloc uses GFP_KERNEL allocation unconditionally so we cannot use on_each_cpu() and do the same thing from the per-cpu context. The update from the current CPU should be safe because perf_event_disable removes the event atomically before it clears the per-cpu watchdog_ev so it cannot change anything under running handler feet. The hrtimer is simply restarted (thanks to Don Zickus who has pointed this out) if it is queued because we cannot rely it will fire&adopt to the new sampling period before a new nmi event triggers (when the treshold is decreased).

Patch a003a2 (sched: Consider runnable load average in move_tasks()) sets all top-level cfs_rqs' h_load to rq->avg.load_avg_contrib, which is always 0. This mistype leads to all tasks having weight 0 when load balancing in a cpu-cgroup enabled setup. There obviously should be sum of weights of all runnable tasks there instead. Fix it.

2013-09-20sched/balancing: Fix 'local->avg_load > busiest->avg_load' case in fix_small_imbalance()Vladimir Davydov1-2/+2
In busiest->group_imb case we can come to fix_small_imbalance() with local->avg_load > busiest->avg_load. This can result in wrong imbalance fix-up, because there is the following check there where all the members are unsigned: if (busiest->avg_load - local->avg_load + scaled_busy_load_per_task >= (scaled_busy_load_per_task * imbn)) { env->imbalance = busiest->load_per_task; return; } As a result we can end up constantly bouncing tasks from one cpu to another if there are pinned tasks.

2013-09-20perf: Fix capabilities bitfield compatibility in 'struct perf_event_mmap_page'Peter Zijlstra1-0/+21
Solve the problems around the broken definition of perf_event_mmap_page:: cap_usr_time and cap_usr_rdpmc fields which used to overlap, partially fixed by: 860f085b74e9 ("perf: Fix broken union in 'struct perf_event_mmap_page'") The problem with the fix (merged in v3.12-rc1 and not yet released officially), noticed by Vince Weaver is that the new behavior is not detectable by new user-space, and that due to the reuse of the field names it's easy to mis-compile a binary if old headers are used on a new kernel or new headers are used on an old kernel. To solve all that make this change explicit, detectable and self-contained, by iterating the ABI the following way: - Always clear bit 0, and rename it to usrpage->cap_bit0, to at least not confuse old user-space binaries. RDPMC will be marked as unavailable to old binaries but that's within the ABI, this is a capability bit. - Rename bit 1 to ->cap_bit0_is_deprecated and always set it to 1, so new libraries can reliably detect that bit 0 is deprecated and perma-zero without having to check the kernel version. - Use bits 2, 3, 4 for the newly defined, correct functionality: cap_user_rdpmc : 1, /* The RDPMC instruction can be used to read counts */ cap_user_time : 1, /* The time_* fields are used */ cap_user_time_zero : 1, /* The time_zero field is used */ - Rename all the bitfield names in perf_event.h to be different from the old names, to make sure it's not possible to mis-compile it accidentally with old assumptions. The 'size' field can then be used in the future to add new fields and it will act as a natural ABI version indicator as well. Also adjust tools/perf/ userspace for the new definitions, noticed by Adrian Hunter.

Pull ACPI and power management fixes from Rafael Wysocki: "All of these commits are fixes that have emerged recently and some of them fix bugs introduced during this merge window. Specifics: 1) ACPI-based PCI hotplug (ACPIPHP) fixes related to spurious events After the recent ACPIPHP changes we've seen some interesting breakage on a system that triggers device check notifications during boot for non-existing devices. Although those notifications are really spurious, we should be able to deal with them nevertheless and that shouldn't introduce too much overhead. Four commits to make that work properly. 2) Memory hotplug and hibernation mutual exclusion rework This was maent to be a cleanup, but it happens to fix a classical ABBA deadlock between system suspend/hibernation and ACPI memory hotplug which is possible if they are started roughly at the same time. Three commits rework memory hotplug so that it doesn't acquire pm_mutex and make hibernation use device_hotplug_lock which prevents it from racing with memory hotplug. 3) ACPI Intel LPSS (Low-Power Subsystem) driver crash fix The ACPI LPSS driver crashes during boot on Apple Macbook Air with Haswell that has slightly unusual BIOS configuration in which one of the LPSS device's _CRS method doesn't return all of the information expected by the driver. Fix from Mika Westerberg, for stable. 4) ACPICA fix related to Store->ArgX operation AML interpreter fix for obscure breakage that causes AML to be executed incorrectly on some machines (observed in practice). From Bob Moore. 5) ACPI core fix for PCI ACPI device objects lookup There still are cases in which there is more than one ACPI device object matching a given PCI device and we don't choose the one that the BIOS expects us to choose, so this makes the lookup take more criteria into account in those cases. 6) Fix to prevent cpuidle from crashing in some rare cases If the result of cpuidle_get_driver() is NULL, which can happen on some systems, cpuidle_driver_ref() will crash trying to use that pointer and the Daniel Fu's fix prevents that from happening. 7) cpufreq fixes related to CPU hotplug Stephen Boyd reported a number of concurrency problems with cpufreq related to CPU hotplug which are addressed by a series of fixes from Srivatsa S Bhat and Viresh Kumar. 8) cpufreq fix for time conversion in time_in_state attribute Time conversion carried out by cpufreq when user space attempts to read /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu*/cpufreq/stats/time_in_state won't work correcty if cputime_t doesn't map directly to jiffies. Fix from Andreas Schwab. 9) Revert of a troublesome cpufreq commit Commit 7c30ed5 (cpufreq: make sure frequency transitions are serialized) was intended to address some known concurrency problems in cpufreq related to the ordering of transitions, but unfortunately it introduced several problems of its own, so I decided to revert it now and address the original problems later in a more robust way. 10) Intel Haswell CPU models for intel_pstate from Nell Hardcastle. 11) cpufreq fixes related to system suspend/resume The recent cpufreq changes that made it preserve CPU sysfs attributes over suspend/resume cycles introduced a possible NULL pointer dereference that caused it to crash during the second attempt to suspend. Three commits from Srivatsa S Bhat fix that problem and a couple of related issues. 12) cpufreq locking fix cpufreq_policy_restore() should acquire the lock for reading, but it acquires it for writing.

Since seqlock/seqcount's aren't supported w/ lockdep, I added some extra spinlock based locking and triggered the following lockdep output: [ 15.849182] ntpd/4062 is trying to acquire lock: [ 15.849765] (&(&pool->lock)->rlock){..-...}, at: [<ffffffff810aa9b5>] __queue_work+0x145/0x480 [ 15.850051] [ 15.850051] but task is already holding lock: [ 15.850051] (timekeeper_lock){-.-.-.}, at: [<ffffffff810df6df>] do_adjtimex+0x7f/0x100 <snip> [ 15.850051] Chain exists of: &(&pool->lock)->rlock --> &p->pi_lock --> timekeeper_lock [ 15.850051] Possible unsafe locking scenario: [ 15.850051] [ 15.850051] CPU0 CPU1 [ 15.850051] ---- ---- [ 15.850051] lock(timekeeper_lock); [ 15.850051] lock(&p->pi_lock); [ 15.850051] lock(timekeeper_lock); [ 15.850051] lock(&(&pool->lock)->rlock); [ 15.850051] [ 15.850051] *** DEADLOCK *** The deadlock was introduced by 06c017fdd4dc48451a ("timekeeping: Hold timekeepering locks in do_adjtimex and hardpps") in 3.10 This patch avoids this deadlock, by moving the call to schedule_delayed_work() outside of the timekeeper lock critical section.

2013-09-11panic: call panic handlers before kmsg_dumpKees Cook1-2/+6
Since the panic handlers may produce additional information (via printk) for the kernel log, it should be reported as part of the panic output saved by kmsg_dump(). Without this re-ordering, nothing that adds information to a panic will show up in pstore's view when kmsg_dump runs, and is therefore not visible to crash reporting tools that examine pstore output.

2013-09-11__ptrace_may_access() should not deny sub-threadsMark Grondona1-1/+1
__ptrace_may_access() checks get_dumpable/ptrace_has_cap/etc if task != current, this can can lead to surprising results. For example, a sub-thread can't readlink("/proc/self/exe") if the executable is not readable. setup_new_exec()->would_dump() notices that inode_permission(MAY_READ) fails and then it does set_dumpable(suid_dumpable). After that get_dumpable() fails. (It is not clear why proc_pid_readlink() checks get_dumpable(), perhaps we could add PTRACE_MODE_NODUMPABLE) Change __ptrace_may_access() to use same_thread_group() instead of "task == current". Any security check is pointless when the tasks share the same ->mm.

2013-09-11kprobes: allow to specify custom allocator for insn cachesHeiko Carstens1-2/+18
The current two insn slot caches both use module_alloc/module_free to allocate and free insn slot cache pages. For s390 this is not sufficient since there is the need to allocate insn slots that are either within the vmalloc module area or within dma memory. Therefore add a mechanism which allows to specify an own allocator for an own insn slot cache.

2013-09-11kprobes: unify insn cachesHeiko Carstens1-54/+21
The current kpropes insn caches allocate memory areas for insn slots with module_alloc(). The assumption is that the kernel image and module area are both within the same +/- 2GB memory area. This however is not true for s390 where the kernel image resides within the first 2GB (DMA memory area), but the module area is far away in the vmalloc area, usually somewhere close below the 4TB area. For new pc relative instructions s390 needs insn slots that are within +/- 2GB of each area. That way we can patch displacements of pc-relative instructions within the insn slots just like x86 and powerpc. The module area works already with the normal insn slot allocator, however there is currently no way to get insn slots that are within the first 2GB on s390 (aka DMA area). Therefore this patch set modifies the kprobes insn slot cache code in order to allow to specify a custom allocator for the insn slot cache pages. In addition architecure can now have private insn slot caches withhout the need to modify common code. Patch 1 unifies and simplifies the current insn and optinsn caches implementation. This is a preparation which allows to add more insn caches in a simple way. Patch 2 adds the possibility to specify a custom allocator. Patch 3 makes s390 use the new insn slot mechanisms and adds support for pc-relative instructions with long displacements. This patch (of 3): The two insn caches (insn, and optinsn) each have an own mutex and alloc/free functions (get_[opt]insn_slot() / free_[opt]insn_slot()). Since there is the need for yet another insn cache which satifies dma allocations on s390, unify and simplify the current implementation: - Move the per insn cache mutex into struct kprobe_insn_cache. - Move the alloc/free functions to kprobe.h so they are simply wrappers for the generic __get_insn_slot/__free_insn_slot functions. The implementation is done with a DEFINE_INSN_CACHE_OPS() macro which provides the alloc/free functions for each cache if needed. - move the struct kprobe_insn_cache to kprobe.h which allows to generate architecture specific insn slot caches outside of the core kprobes code.
