2018-06-07riscv: use NULL instead of a plain 0Luc Van Oostenryck
sbi_remote_sfence_vma() & sbi_remote_fence_i() takes a pointer as first argument but some macros call them with a plain 0 which, while legal C, is frowned upon in the kernel. Change this by replacing the 0 by NULL. Signed-off-by: Luc Van Oostenryck <luc.vanoostenryck@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Palmer Dabbelt <palmer@sifive.com>
2017-11-30RISC-V: Allow userspace to flush the instruction cacheAndrew Waterman
Despite RISC-V having a direct 'fence.i' instruction available to userspace (which we can't trap!), that's not actually viable when running on Linux because the kernel might schedule a process on another hart. There is no way for userspace to handle this without invoking the kernel (as it doesn't know the thread->hart mappings), so we've defined a RISC-V specific system call to flush the instruction cache. This patch adds both a system call and a VDSO entry. If possible, we'd like to avoid having the system call be considered part of the user-facing ABI and instead restrict that to the VDSO entry -- both just in general to avoid having additional user-visible ABI to maintain, and because we'd prefer that users just call the VDSO entry because there might be a better way to do this in the future (ie, one that doesn't require entering the kernel).

2017-11-30RISC-V: Flush I$ when making a dirty page executableAndrew Waterman
The RISC-V ISA allows for instruction caches that are not coherent WRT stores, even on a single hart. As a result, we need to explicitly flush the instruction cache whenever marking a dirty page as executable in order to preserve the correct system behavior. Local instruction caches aren't that scary (our implementations actually flush the cache, but RISC-V is defined to allow higher-performance implementations to exist), but RISC-V defines no way to perform an instruction cache shootdown. When explicitly asked to do so we can shoot down remote instruction caches via an IPI, but this is a bit on the slow side. Instead of requiring an IPI to all harts whenever marking a page as executable, we simply flush the currently running harts. In order to maintain correct behavior, we additionally mark every other hart as needing a deferred instruction cache which will be taken before anything runs on it.

2017-09-26RISC-V: Atomic and Locking CodePalmer Dabbelt
This contains all the code that directly interfaces with the RISC-V memory model. While this code corforms to the current RISC-V ISA specifications (user 2.2 and priv 1.10), the memory model is somewhat underspecified in those documents. There is a working group that hopes to produce a formal memory model by the end of the year, but my understanding is that the basic definitions we're relying on here won't change significantly.
