2014-07-18seccomp: add "seccomp" syscallKees Cook
This adds the new "seccomp" syscall with both an "operation" and "flags" parameter for future expansion. The third argument is a pointer value, used with the SECCOMP_SET_MODE_FILTER operation. Currently, flags must be 0. This is functionally equivalent to prctl(PR_SET_SECCOMP, ...). In addition to the TSYNC flag later in this patch series, there is a non-zero chance that this syscall could be used for configuring a fixed argument area for seccomp-tracer-aware processes to pass syscall arguments in the future. Hence, the use of "seccomp" not simply "seccomp_add_filter" for this syscall. Additionally, this syscall uses operation, flags, and user pointer for arguments because strictly passing arguments via a user pointer would mean seccomp itself would be unable to trivially filter the seccomp syscall itself.

2013-12-20stackprotector: Introduce CONFIG_CC_STACKPROTECTOR_STRONGKees Cook
This changes the stack protector config option into a choice of "None", "Regular", and "Strong": CONFIG_CC_STACKPROTECTOR_NONE CONFIG_CC_STACKPROTECTOR_REGULAR CONFIG_CC_STACKPROTECTOR_STRONG "Regular" means the old CONFIG_CC_STACKPROTECTOR=y option. "Strong" is a new mode introduced by this patch. With "Strong" the kernel is built with -fstack-protector-strong (available in gcc 4.9 and later). This option increases the coverage of the stack protector without the heavy performance hit of -fstack-protector-all. For reference, the stack protector options available in gcc are: -fstack-protector-all: Adds the stack-canary saving prefix and stack-canary checking suffix to _all_ function entry and exit. Results in substantial use of stack space for saving the canary for deep stack users (e.g. historically xfs), and measurable (though shockingly still low) performance hit due to all the saving/checking. Really not suitable for sane systems, and was entirely removed as an option from the kernel many years ago. -fstack-protector: Adds the canary save/check to functions that define an 8 (--param=ssp-buffer-size=N, N=8 by default) or more byte local char array. Traditionally, stack overflows happened with string-based manipulations, so this was a way to find those functions. Very few total functions actually get the canary; no measurable performance or size overhead. -fstack-protector-strong Adds the canary for a wider set of functions, since it's not just those with strings that have ultimately been vulnerable to stack-busting. With this superset, more functions end up with a canary, but it still remains small compared to all functions with only a small change in performance. Based on the original design document, a function gets the canary when it contains any of: - local variable's address used as part of the right hand side of an assignment or function argument - local variable is an array (or union containing an array), regardless of array type or length - uses register local variables https://docs.google.com/a/google.com/document/d/1xXBH6rRZue4f296vGt9YQcuLVQHeE516stHwt8M9xyU Find below a comparison of "size" and "objdump" output when built with gcc-4.9 in three configurations: - defconfig 11430641 kernel text size 36110 function bodies - defconfig + CONFIG_CC_STACKPROTECTOR_REGULAR 11468490 kernel text size (+0.33%) 1015 of 36110 functions are stack-protected (2.81%) - defconfig + CONFIG_CC_STACKPROTECTOR_STRONG via this patch 11692790 kernel text size (+2.24%) 7401 of 36110 functions are stack-protected (20.5%) With -strong, ARM's compressed boot code now triggers stack protection, so a static guard was added. Since this is only used during decompression and was never used before, the exposure here is very small. Once it switches to the full kernel, the stack guard is back to normal. Chrome OS has been using -fstack-protector-strong for its kernel builds for the last 8 months with no problems.

2013-10-01irq: Optimize softirq stack selection in irq exitFrederic Weisbecker
If irq_exit() is called on the arch's specified irq stack, it should be safe to run softirqs inline under that same irq stack as it is near empty by the time we call irq_exit(). For example if we use the same stack for both hard and soft irqs here, the worst case scenario is: hardirq -> softirq -> hardirq. But then the softirq supersedes the first hardirq as the stack user since irq_exit() is called in a mostly empty stack. So the stack merge in this case looks acceptable. Stack overrun still have a chance to happen if hardirqs have more opportunities to nest, but then it's another problem to solve. So lets adapt the irq exit's softirq stack on top of a new Kconfig symbol that can be defined when irq_exit() runs on the irq stack. That way we can spare some stack switch on irq processing and all the cache issues that come along.

2013-09-30vtime: Add HAVE_VIRT_CPU_ACCOUNTING_GEN KconfigKevin Hilman
With VIRT_CPU_ACCOUNTING_GEN, cputime_t becomes 64-bit. In order to use that feature, arch code should be audited to ensure there are no races in concurrent read/write of cputime_t. For example, reading/writing 64-bit cputime_t on some 32-bit arches may require multiple accesses for low and high value parts, so proper locking is needed to protect against concurrent accesses. Therefore, add CONFIG_HAVE_VIRT_CPU_ACCOUNTING_GEN which arches can enable after they've been audited for potential races. This option is automatically enabled on 64-bit platforms.

2013-08-13microblaze: fix clone syscallMichal Simek
Fix inadvertent breakage in the clone syscall ABI for Microblaze that was introduced in commit f3268edbe6fe ("microblaze: switch to generic fork/vfork/clone"). The Microblaze syscall ABI for clone takes the parent tid address in the 4th argument; the third argument slot is used for the stack size. The incorrectly-used CLONE_BACKWARDS type assigned parent tid to the 3rd slot. This commit restores the original ABI so that existing userspace libc code will work correctly.

2013-07-03mm: soft-dirty bits for user memory changes trackingPavel Emelyanov
The soft-dirty is a bit on a PTE which helps to track which pages a task writes to. In order to do this tracking one should 1. Clear soft-dirty bits from PTEs ("echo 4 > /proc/PID/clear_refs) 2. Wait some time. 3. Read soft-dirty bits (55'th in /proc/PID/pagemap2 entries) To do this tracking, the writable bit is cleared from PTEs when the soft-dirty bit is. Thus, after this, when the task tries to modify a page at some virtual address the #PF occurs and the kernel sets the soft-dirty bit on the respective PTE. Note, that although all the task's address space is marked as r/o after the soft-dirty bits clear, the #PF-s that occur after that are processed fast. This is so, since the pages are still mapped to physical memory, and thus all the kernel does is finds this fact out and puts back writable, dirty and soft-dirty bits on the PTE. Another thing to note, is that when mremap moves PTEs they are marked with soft-dirty as well, since from the user perspective mremap modifies the virtual memory at mremap's new address.

2013-05-05idle: Fix hlt/nohlt command-line handling in new generic idleKevin Hilman
commit d1669912 (idle: Implement generic idle function) added a new generic idle along with support for hlt/nohlt command line options to override default idle loop behavior. However, the command-line processing is never compiled. The command-line handling is wrapped by CONFIG_GENERIC_IDLE_POLL_SETUP and arches that use this feature select it in their Kconfigs. However, no Kconfig definition was created for this option, so it is never enabled, and therefore command-line override of the idle-loop behavior is broken after migrating to the generic idle loop. To fix, add a Kconfig definition for GENERIC_IDLE_POLL_SETUP. Tested on ARM (OMAP4/Panda) which enables the command-line overrides by default.

2013-03-15CONFIG_SYMBOL_PREFIX: cleanup.Rusty Russell
We have CONFIG_SYMBOL_PREFIX, which three archs define to the string "_". But Al Viro broke this in "consolidate cond_syscall and SYSCALL_ALIAS declarations" (in linux-next), and he's not the first to do so. Using CONFIG_SYMBOL_PREFIX is awkward, since we usually just want to prefix it so something. So various places define helpers which are defined to nothing if CONFIG_SYMBOL_PREFIX isn't set: 1) include/asm-generic/unistd.h defines __SYMBOL_PREFIX. 2) include/asm-generic/vmlinux.lds.h defines VMLINUX_SYMBOL(sym) 3) include/linux/export.h defines MODULE_SYMBOL_PREFIX. 4) include/linux/kernel.h defines SYMBOL_PREFIX (which differs from #7) 5) kernel/modsign_certificate.S defines ASM_SYMBOL(sym) 6) scripts/modpost.c defines MODULE_SYMBOL_PREFIX 7) scripts/Makefile.lib defines SYMBOL_PREFIX on the commandline if CONFIG_SYMBOL_PREFIX is set, so that we have a non-string version for pasting. (arch/h8300/include/asm/linkage.h defines SYMBOL_NAME(), too). Let's solve this properly: 1) No more generic prefix, just CONFIG_HAVE_UNDERSCORE_SYMBOL_PREFIX. 2) Make linux/export.h usable from asm. 3) Define VMLINUX_SYMBOL() and VMLINUX_SYMBOL_STR(). 4) Make everyone use them.

2013-03-02Add HAVE_64BIT_ALIGNED_ACCESSJames Hogan
On 64 bit architectures with no efficient unaligned access, padding and explicit alignment must be added in various places to prevent unaligned 64bit accesses (such as taskstats and trace ring buffer). However this also needs to apply to 32 bit architectures with 64 bit accesses requiring alignment such as metag. This is solved by adding a new Kconfig symbol HAVE_64BIT_ALIGNED_ACCESS which defaults to 64BIT && !HAVE_EFFICIENT_UNALIGNED_ACCESS, and can be explicitly selected by METAG and any other relevant architectures. This can be used in various places to determine whether 64bit alignment is required.

2012-12-06byteorder: allow arch to opt to use GCC intrinsics for byteswappingDavid Woodhouse
Since GCC 4.4, there have been __builtin_bswap32() and __builtin_bswap16() intrinsics. A __builtin_bswap16() came a little later (4.6 for PowerPC, 48 for other platforms). By using these instead of the inline assembler that most architectures have in their __arch_swabXX() macros, we let the compiler see what's actually happening. The resulting code should be at least as good, and much *better* in the cases where it can be combined with a nearby load or store, using a load-and-byteswap or store-and-byteswap instruction (e.g. lwbrx/stwbrx on PowerPC, movbe on Atom). When GCC is sufficiently recent *and* the architecture opts in to using the intrinsics by setting CONFIG_ARCH_USE_BUILTIN_BSWAP, they will be used in preference to the __arch_swabXX() macros. An architecture which does not set ARCH_USE_BUILTIN_BSWAP will continue to use its own hand-crafted macros. Signed-off-by: David Woodhouse <David.Woodhouse@intel.com> Acked-by: H.

Also, use the generic definition mod_arch_specific where possible. To this end, I've defined three new config bools: (*) HAVE_MOD_ARCH_SPECIFIC Arches define this if they don't want to use the empty generic mod_arch_specific struct. (*) MODULES_USE_ELF_RELA Arches define this if their modules can contain RELA records. This causes the Elf_Rela mapping to be emitted and allows apply_relocate_add() to be defined by the arch rather than have the core emit an error message. (*) MODULES_USE_ELF_REL Arches define this if their modules can contain REL records. This causes the Elf_Rel mapping to be emitted and allows apply_relocate() to be defined by the arch rather than have the core emit an error message. Note that it is possible to allow both REL and RELA records: m68k and mips are two arches that do this. With this, some arch asm/module.h files can be deleted entirely and replaced with a generic-y marker in the arch Kbuild file. Additionally, I have removed the bits from m32r and score that handle the unsupported type of relocation record as that's now handled centrally.
