2019-10-30selftests/powerpc: Add a test of spectre_v2 mitigationsMichael Ellerman1-0/+20
This test uses the PMU to count branch prediction hits/misses for a known loop, and compare the result to the reported spectre v2 mitigation. This gives us a way of sanity checking that the reported mitigation is actually in effect. Sample output for some cases, eg: Power9: sysfs reports: 'Vulnerable' PM_BR_PRED_CCACHE: result 368 running/enabled 5792777124 PM_BR_MPRED_CCACHE: result 319 running/enabled 5792775546 PM_BR_PRED_PCACHE: result 2147483281 running/enabled 5792773128 PM_BR_MPRED_PCACHE: result 213604201 running/enabled 5792771640 Miss percent 9 % OK - Measured branch prediction rates match reported spectre v2 mitigation. sysfs reports: 'Mitigation: Indirect branch serialisation (kernel only)' PM_BR_PRED_CCACHE: result 895 running/enabled 5780320920 PM_BR_MPRED_CCACHE: result 822 running/enabled 5780312414 PM_BR_PRED_PCACHE: result 2147482754 running/enabled 5780308836 PM_BR_MPRED_PCACHE: result 213639731 running/enabled 5780307912 Miss percent 9 % OK - Measured branch prediction rates match reported spectre v2 mitigation. sysfs reports: 'Mitigation: Indirect branch cache disabled' PM_BR_PRED_CCACHE: result 2147483649 running/enabled 20540186160 PM_BR_MPRED_CCACHE: result 2147483649 running/enabled 20540180056 PM_BR_PRED_PCACHE: result 0 running/enabled 20540176090 PM_BR_MPRED_PCACHE: result 0 running/enabled 20540174182 Miss percent 100 % OK - Measured branch prediction rates match reported spectre v2 mitigation.

2018-11-01selftests/powerpc: Fix compilation issue due to asm labelNaveen N. Rao1-3/+3
We are using 'dscr_insn' as a label in inline asm to identify if a SIGILL was generated by the mtspr instruction at that point. However, with inline assembly, the compiler is still free to duplicate the asm statement for optimization purposes, which results in the label being defined twice with the error: /tmp/ccerQCql.s:874: Error: symbol `dscr_insn' is already defined With different compiler versions, we may also see: /tmp/ccJzLDlN.o:(.toc+0x0): undefined reference to `dscr_insn' Remove the use of the label in the inline assembly. Instead, just look for the offending instruction in the signal handler.

2018-10-20selftests/powerpc: Add test to verify rfi flush across a system callNaveen N. Rao1-0/+152
This adds a test to verify proper functioning of the rfi flush capability implemented to mitigate meltdown. The test works by measuring the number of L1d cache misses encountered while loading data from memory. Across a system call, since the L1d cache is flushed when rfi_flush is enabled, the number of cache misses is expected to be relative to the number of cachelines corresponding to the data being loaded. The current system setting is reflected via powerpc/rfi_flush under debugfs (assumed to be /sys/kernel/debug/). This test verifies the expected result with rfi_flush enabled as well as when it is disabled.

Some of our selftests have only been tested on ppc64le and crash or behave weirdly on ppc64/ppc32. So add a helper for checking the UTS machine. Signed-off-by: Michael Ellerman <mpe@ellerman.id.au>

Refactor the AUXV routines so they are more composable. In a future test we want to look for many AUXV entries and we don't want to have to read /proc/self/auxv each time. Signed-off-by: Michael Ellerman <mpe@ellerman.id.au>
