2013-05-01x86: mm: Remove general hugetlb code from x86.x86-to-mm-moveSteve Capper
huge_pte_alloc, huge_pte_offset and follow_huge_p[mu]d have already been copied over to mm. This patch removes the x86 copies of these functions and activates the general ones by enabling: CONFIG_ARCH_WANT_GENERAL_HUGETLB Signed-off-by: Steve Capper <steve.capper@linaro.org>
2013-05-01mm: hugetlb: Copy general hugetlb code from x86 to mm.Steve Capper
The huge_pte_alloc, huge_pte_offset and follow_huge_p[mu]d functions in x86/mm/hugetlbpage.c do not rely on any architecture specific knowledge other than the fact that pmds and puds can be treated as huge ptes. To allow other architectures to use this code (and reduce the need for code duplication), this patch copies these functions into mm and provides a config flag to activate them: CONFIG_ARCH_WANT_GENERAL_HUGETLB If CONFIG_ARCH_WANT_HUGE_PMD_SHARE is also active then the huge_pmd_share code will be called by huge_pte_alloc (othewise we call pmd_alloc and skip the sharing code). Signed-off-by: Steve Capper <steve.capper@linaro.org>
2013-05-01x86: mm: Remove x86 version of huge_pmd_share.Steve Capper
The huge_pmd_share code has been copied over to mm/hugetlb.c to make it accessible to other architectures. Remove the x86 copy of the huge_pmd_share code and enable the ARCH_WANT_HUGE_PMD_SHARE config flag. That way we reference the general one. Signed-off-by: Steve Capper <steve.capper@linaro.org>
2013-05-01mm: hugetlb: Copy huge_pmd_share from x86 to mm.Steve Capper
Under x86, multiple puds can be made to reference the same bank of huge pmds provided that they represent a full PUD_SIZE of shared huge memory that is aligned to a PUD_SIZE boundary. The code to share pmds does not require any architecture specific knowledge other than the fact that pmds can be indexed, thus can be beneficial to some other architectures. This patch copies the huge pmd sharing (and unsharing) logic from x86/ to mm/ and introduces a new config option to activate it: CONFIG_ARCH_WANTS_HUGE_PMD_SHARE Signed-off-by: Steve Capper <steve.capper@linaro.org>
2013-05-01arm64: mm: Correct show_pte behaviourprereqSteve Capper
show_pte makes use of the *_none_or_clear_bad style functions. If a pgd, pud or pmd is identified as being bad, it will then be cleared. As show_pte appears to be called from either the user or kernel fault handlers this side effect can lead to unpredictable behaviour; especially as TLB entries are not invalidated. This patch removes the page table sanitisation from show_pte. If a bad pgd, pud or pmd is encountered it is left unmodified.

I think we could just move the full vm_iomap_memory() function into util.h or similar, but I didn't get any reply from anybody actually using nommu even to this trivial patch, so I'm not going to touch it any more than required.

2013-04-26efivars: only check for duplicates on the registered listMatt Fleming
variable_is_present() accesses '__efivars' directly, but when called via gsmi_init() Michel reports observing the following crash, BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at (null) IP: variable_is_present+0x55/0x170 Call Trace: register_efivars+0x106/0x370 gsmi_init+0x2ad/0x3da do_one_initcall+0x3f/0x170 The reason for the crash is that '__efivars' hasn't been initialised nor has it been registered with register_efivars() by the time the google EFI SMI driver runs. The gsmi code uses its own struct efivars, and therefore, a different variable list. Fix the above crash by passing the registered struct efivars to variable_is_present(), so that we traverse the correct list.

In commit b0de59b5733d ("TTY: do not update atime/mtime on read/write") we removed timestamps from tty inodes to fix a security issue and waited if something breaks. Well, 'w', the utility to find out logged users and their inactivity time broke. It shows that users are inactive since the time they logged in. To revert to the old behaviour while still preventing attackers to guess the password length, we update the timestamps in one-minute intervals by this patch.

2013-04-25parisc: use spin_lock_irqsave/spin_unlock_irqrestore for PTE updatesJohn David Anglin
User applications running on SMP kernels have long suffered from instability and random segmentation faults. This patch improves the situation although there is more work to be done. One of the problems is the various routines in pgtable.h that update page table entries use different locking mechanisms, or no lock at all (set_pte_at). This change modifies the routines to all use the same lock pa_dbit_lock. This lock is used for dirty bit updates in the interruption code. The patch also purges the TLB entries associated with the PTE to ensure that inconsistent values are not used after the page table entry is updated. The UP and SMP code are now identical. The change also includes a minor update to the purge_tlb_entries function in cache.c to improve its efficiency.

2013-04-25parisc: disable -mlong-calls compiler option for kernel modulesHelge Deller
CONFIG_MLONGCALLS was introduced in commit ec758f98328da3eb933a25dc7a2eed01ef44d849 to overcome linker issues when linking huge linux kernels, e.g. with many modules linked in. But in the kernel module loader there is no support yet for the new relocation types, which is why modules built with -mlong-calls can't be loaded. Furthermore, for modules long calls are not really necessary, since we already use stub sections which resolve long distance calls. So, let's just disable this compiler option when compiling kernel modules. Signed-off-by: Helge Deller <deller@gmx.de>
2013-04-25parisc: uaccess: fix compiler warnings caused by __put_user castingWill Deacon
When targetting 32-bit processors, __put_user emits a pair of stw instructions for the 8-byte case. If the type of __val is a pointer, the marshalling code casts it to the wider integer type of u64, resulting in the following compiler warnings: kernel/signal.c: In function 'copy_siginfo_to_user': kernel/signal.c:2752:11: warning: cast from pointer to integer of different size [-Wpointer-to-int-cast] kernel/signal.c:2752:11: warning: cast from pointer to integer of different size [-Wpointer-to-int-cast] [...] This patch fixes the warnings by removing the marshalling code and using the correct output modifiers in the __put_{user,kernel}_asm64 macros so that GCC will allocate the right registers without the need to extract the two words explicitly.

2013-04-24efi: Check EFI revision in setup_efi_varsJosh Boyer
We need to check the runtime sys_table for the EFI version the firmware specifies instead of just checking for a NULL QueryVariableInfo. Older implementations of EFI don't have QueryVariableInfo but the runtime is a smaller structure, so the pointer to it may be pointing off into garbage. This is apparently the case with several Apple firmwares that support EFI 1.10, and the current check causes them to no longer boot. Fix based on a suggestion from Matthew Garrett.

2013-04-20net: fix incorrect credentials passingLinus Torvalds
Commit 257b5358b32f ("scm: Capture the full credentials of the scm sender") changed the credentials passing code to pass in the effective uid/gid instead of the real uid/gid. Obviously this doesn't matter most of the time (since normally they are the same), but it results in differences for suid binaries when the wrong uid/gid ends up being used. This just undoes that (presumably unintentional) part of the commit. Reported-by: Andy Lutomirski <luto@amacapital.net> Cc: Eric W. Biederman <ebiederm@xmission.com> Cc: Serge E.

2013-04-19x86, microcode: Verify the family before dispatching microcode patchingH. Peter Anvin
For each CPU vendor that implements CPU microcode patching, there will be a minimum family for which this is implemented. Verify this minimum level of support. This can be done in the dispatch function or early in the application functions. Doing the latter turned out to be somewhat awkward because of the ineviable split between the BSP and the AP paths, and rather than pushing deep into the application functions, do this in the dispatch function.

2013-04-19net: rate-limit warn-bad-offload splats.Ben Greear
If one does do something unfortunate and allow a bad offload bug into the kernel, this the skb_warn_bad_offload can effectively live-lock the system, filling the logs with the same error over and over. Add rate limitation to this so that box remains otherwise functional in this case. Signed-off-by: Ben Greear <greearb@candelatech.com> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
2013-04-19net: ax88796: avoid 64 bit arithmeticArnd Bergmann
When building ax88796 on an ARM platform with 64-bit resource_size_t, we currently get drivers/net/ethernet/8390/ax88796.c:875: undefined reference to `__aeabi_uldivmod' because we do a division on the length of the MMIO resource. Since we know that this resource is very short, using an "unsigned long" instead of "resource_size_t" is entirely sufficient, and avoids this link-time error.

2013-04-19Merge branch 'qmi_wwan'David S. Miller
Bjørn Mork says: ==================== This series adds workarounds for 3 different firmware bugs, each preventing the affected devices from working at all. I therefore humbly request that these fixes go to stable-3.8 (if still maintained) and 3.9 (either via net if still possible, or via stable if not). All 3 workarounds are applied to all devices supported by the driver. Adding quirks for specific devices was considered as an alternative, but was rejected because we have too little information about the exact distribution of the buggy firmwares. All we know is that the same bug shows up in devices from at least 3 different, and presumably independent, vendors. The workarounds have instead been designed to automatically apply when necessary, and to have as little impact as possible on unaffected devices. The series has been tested on a number of devices both with and without these bugs. The series should apply cleanly to net/master, net-next/master and stable/linux-3.8.y ==================== Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
2013-04-19net: qmi_wwan: prevent duplicate mac address on link (firmware bug workaround)Bjørn Mork
We normally trust and use the CDC functional descriptors provided by a number of devices. But some of these will erroneously list the address reserved for the device end of the link. Attempting to use this on both the device and host side will naturally not work. Work around this bug by ignoring the functional descriptor and assign a random address instead in this case.
