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.

2013-02-20parisc: fix ptrace breakageAl Viro
1) PTRACE_SYSCALL doesn't work for 64bit process on parisc64. Compat syscall table is used instead of 64bit one. IMO we should either refuse to allow PTRACE_SYSCALL for 64bit processes or duplicate the logics choosing the right syscall table into .Ltracesys. 2) if you have let the tracee run with PTRACE_SYSCALL and it had stopped, you can use PTRACE_POKEUSR to modify syscall number (r20) and arguments 1--4 (r26--r23). Modifications will have effect. However, modifying arguments 5 and 6 (r22 and r21 resp.) works only when process (32bit one) runs on 64bit host - on 32bit one it has no effect. AFAICS, the diff below should fix that one. Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@ZenIV.linux.org.uk> Tested-by: John David Anglin <dave.anglin@bell.net> Signed-off-by: Helge Deller <deller@gmx.de>

2013-02-20parisc: remove IRQF_DISABLEDPeter Zijlstra
People are playing odd games with IRQF_DISABLED, remove it. Its not reliable, since shared interrupt lines could disable it for you, and its possible and allowed for archs to disable IRQs to limit IRQ nesting. Therefore, simply mandate that _ALL_ IRQ handlers are run with IRQs disabled. [ This _should_ not break anything, since we've mandated that IRQ handlers _must_ be able to deal with this for a _long_ time ] IRQ handlers should be fast, no if buts and any other exceptions. We also have plenty instrumentation to find any offending IRQ latency sources.

2013-02-20parisc: fixes and cleanups in page cache flushing (4/4)John David Anglin
CONFIG_PARISC_TMPALIAS enables clear_user_highpage and copy_user_highpage. These are essentially alternative implementations of clear_user_page and copy_user_page. They don't have anything to do with x86 high pages, but they build on the infrastructure to save a few instructions. Read the comment in clear_user_highpage as it is very important to the implementation. For this reason, there isn't any gain in using the TMPALIAS/highpage approach.

2013-02-20parisc: fixes and cleanups in page cache flushing (3/4)John David Anglin
flush_cache_mm, for the non current case also uses flush_dcache_page_asm and flush_icache_page_asm which are TMPALIAS flushes. For the non current case, the algorithm used by get_ptep is derived from the vmalloc_to_page implementation in vmalloc.c. It is essentially a generic page table lookup. The other alternative was to duplicate the lookup in entry.S. The break point for switching to a full cache flush is somewhat arbitrary. The same approach is used in flush_cache_range for non current case. In a GCC build and check, many small programs are executed and this change provided a significant performance enhancement, e.g. GCC build time was cut almost in half on a rp3440 at j4. Previously, we always flushed the entire cache. Signed-off-by: John David Anglin <dave.anglin@bell.net> Signed-off-by: Helge Deller <deller@gmx.de>
2013-02-20parisc: fixes and cleanups in page cache flushing (2/4)John David Anglin
Implement clear_page_asm and copy_page_asm. These are optimized routines to clear and copy a page. I tested prefetch optimizations in clear_page_asm and copy_page_asm but didn't see any significant performance improvement on rp3440. I'm not sure if these are routines are significantly faster than memset and/or memcpy, but they are there for further performance evaluation. TLB purge operations on PA 1.X SMP machines are now serialized with the help of the new tlb_lock() and tlb_unlock() macros, since on some PA-RISC machines, TLB purges need to be serialized in software. Obviously, lock isn't needed in UP kernels. On PA 2.0 machines, there is a local TLB instruction which is much less disruptive to the memory subsystem. No lock is needed for local purge. Loops are also unrolled in flush_instruction_cache_local and flush_data_cache_local. The implementation of what used to be copy_user_page (now copy_user_page_asm) is now fixed. Additionally 64-bit support is now added. Read the preceding comment which I didn't change. I left the comment but it is now inaccurate.

2013-02-20parisc: fixes and cleanups in page cache flushing (1/4)John David Anglin
This is the first patch in a series of 4, with which the page cache flushing of parisc will gets fixed and enhanced. This even fixes the nasty "minifail" bug (http://wiki.parisc-linux.org/TestCases?highlight=%28minifail%29) which prevented parisc to stay an official debian port. Basically the flush in copy_user_page together with the TLB patch from commit 7139bc1579901b53db7e898789e916ee2fb52d78 is what fixes the minifail bug. This patch still uses the TMPALIAS approach. The new copy_user_page implementation calls flush_dcache_page_asm to flush the user dcache page (crucial for minifail fix) via a kernel TMPALIAS mapping. After that, it just copies the page using the kernel mapping. It does a final flush if needed. Generally it is hard to avoid doing some cache flushes using the kernel mapping (e.g., copy_to_user_page and copy_from_user_page). This patch depends on a subsequent change to pacache.S implementing clear_page_asm and copy_page_asm. These are optimized routines to clear and copy a page. The calls in clear_user_page and copy_user_page could be replaced by calls to memset and memcpy, respectively. I tested prefetch optimizations in clear_page_asm and copy_page_asm but didn't see any significant performance improvement on rp3440. I'm not sure if these are routines are significantly faster than memset and/or memcpy, but they are there for further performance evaluation.

2013-01-07parisc: improve ptrace support for gdb single-stepJohn David Anglin
Various GCC tests use gdb to simulate a multithreaded application. Many of these tests have been failing on parisc linux. GCC does this by using gdb to single-step the application, then gdb is used to call other test specific code. Where this fails is when the application is stepped into the delay slot of a taken branch. This sets the PSW B bit. When the test specific code is executed, this usually clears the PSW B bit. Currently, gdb is not allowed to set the B bit. So, the code falls through what should be a taken branch. The attached patch adds the PSW B bit to the set of bits that gdb is allowed to set. In order to set the B bit, the trace system call must return using an interrupt restore. The patch also modifies this code to use the saved IAOQ values when they are saved by a ptrace syscall or interruption.

2012-12-14modules: don't hand 0 to vmalloc.Rusty Russell
In commit d0a21265dfb5fa8a David Rientjes unified various archs' module_alloc implementation (including x86) and removed the graduitous shortcut for size == 0. Then, in commit de7d2b567d040e3b, Joe Perches added a warning for zero-length vmallocs, which can happen without kallsyms on modules with no init sections (eg. zlib_deflate). Fix this once and for all; the module code has to handle zero length anyway, so get it right at the caller and remove the now-gratuitous checks within the arch-specific module_alloc implementations.

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/viro/signal Pull big execve/kernel_thread/fork unification series from Al Viro: "All architectures are converted to new model. Quite a bit of that stuff is actually shared with architecture trees; in such cases it's literally shared branch pulled by both, not a cherry-pick. A lot of ugliness and black magic is gone (-3KLoC total in this one): - kernel_thread()/kernel_execve()/sys_execve() redesign. We don't do syscalls from kernel anymore for either kernel_thread() or kernel_execve(): kernel_thread() is essentially clone(2) with callback run before we return to userland, the callbacks either never return or do successful do_execve() before returning. kernel_execve() is a wrapper for do_execve() - it doesn't need to do transition to user mode anymore. As a result kernel_thread() and kernel_execve() are arch-independent now - they live in kernel/fork.c and fs/exec.c resp. sys_execve() is also in fs/exec.c and it's completely architecture-independent. - daemonize() is gone, along with its parts in fs/*.c - struct pt_regs * is no longer passed to do_fork/copy_process/ copy_thread/do_execve/search_binary_handler/->load_binary/do_coredump. - sys_fork()/sys_vfork()/sys_clone() unified; some architectures still need wrappers (ones with callee-saved registers not saved in pt_regs on syscall entry), but the main part of those suckers is in kernel/fork.c now." * 'for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/viro/signal: (113 commits) do_coredump(): get rid of pt_regs argument print_fatal_signal(): get rid of pt_regs argument ptrace_signal(): get rid of unused arguments get rid of ptrace_signal_deliver() arguments new helper: signal_pt_regs() unify default ptrace_signal_deliver flagday: kill pt_regs argument of do_fork() death to idle_regs() don't pass regs to copy_process() flagday: don't pass regs to copy_thread() bfin: switch to generic vfork, get rid of pointless wrappers xtensa: switch to generic clone() openrisc: switch to use of generic fork and clone unicore32: switch to generic clone(2) score: switch to generic fork/vfork/clone c6x: sanitize copy_thread(), get rid of clone(2) wrapper, switch to generic clone() take sys_fork/sys_vfork/sys_clone prototypes to linux/syscalls.h mn10300: switch to generic fork/vfork/clone h8300: switch to generic fork/vfork/clone tile: switch to generic clone() ...
