2014-05-05x86, vdso: Reimplement vdso.so preparation in build-time CAndy Lutomirski
Currently, vdso.so files are prepared and analyzed by a combination of objcopy, nm, some linker script tricks, and some simple ELF parsers in the kernel. Replace all of that with plain C code that runs at build time. All five vdso images now generate .c files that are compiled and linked in to the kernel image. This should cause only one userspace-visible change: the loaded vDSO images are stripped more heavily than they used to be. Everything outside the loadable segment is dropped. In particular, this causes the section table and section name strings to be missing. This should be fine: real dynamic loaders don't load or inspect these tables anyway. The result is roughly equivalent to eu-strip's --strip-sections option. The purpose of this change is to enable the vvar and hpet mappings to be moved to the page following the vDSO load segment. Currently, it is possible for the section table to extend into the page after the load segment, so, if we map it, it risks overlapping the vvar or hpet page. This happens whenever the load segment is just under a multiple of PAGE_SIZE. The only real subtlety here is that the old code had a C file with inline assembler that did 'call VDSO32_vsyscall' and a linker script that defined 'VDSO32_vsyscall = __kernel_vsyscall'. This most likely worked by accident: the linker script entry defines a symbol associated with an address as opposed to an alias for the real dynamic symbol __kernel_vsyscall. That caused ld to relocate the reference at link time instead of leaving an interposable dynamic relocation. Since the VDSO32_vsyscall hack is no longer needed, I now use 'call __kernel_vsyscall', and I added -Bsymbolic to make it work. vdso2c will generate an error and abort the build if the resulting image contains any dynamic relocations, so we won't silently generate bad vdso images. (Dynamic relocations are a problem because nothing will even attempt to relocate the vdso.)

2013-09-01Introduce [compat_]save_altstack_ex() to unbreak x86 SMAPAl Viro
For performance reasons, when SMAP is in use, SMAP is left open for an entire put_user_try { ... } put_user_catch(); block, however, calling __put_user() in the middle of that block will close SMAP as the STAC..CLAC constructs intentionally do not nest. Furthermore, using __put_user() rather than put_user_ex() here is bad for performance. Thus, introduce new [compat_]save_altstack_ex() helpers that replace __[compat_]save_altstack() for x86, being currently the only architecture which supports put_user_try { ... } put_user_catch().

2013-05-28x86/signals: Propagate RF EFLAGS bit through the signal restore callJiri Olsa
While porting Vince's perf overflow tests I found perf event breakpoint overflow does not work properly. I found the x86 RF EFLAG bit not being set when returning from debug exception after triggering signal handler. Which is exactly what you get when you set perf breakpoint overflow SIGIO handler. This patch and the next two patches fix the underlying bugs. This patch adds the RF EFLAGS bit to be restored on return from signal from the original register context before the signal was entered. This will prevent the RF flag to disappear when returning from exception due to the signal handler being executed.

Signal handling contains a bunch of accesses to individual user space items, which causes an excessive number of STAC and CLAC instructions. Instead, let get/put_user_try ... get/put_user_catch() contain the STAC and CLAC instructions. This means that get/put_user_try no longer nests, and furthermore that it is no longer legal to use user space access functions other than __get/put_user_ex() inside those blocks. However, these macros are x86-specific anyway and are only used in the signal-handling paths; a simple reordering of moving the larger subroutine calls out of the try...catch blocks resolves that problem.

2012-09-21x86, smap: Add STAC and CLAC instructions to control user space accessH. Peter Anvin
When Supervisor Mode Access Prevention (SMAP) is enabled, access to userspace from the kernel is controlled by the AC flag. To make the performance of manipulating that flag acceptable, there are two new instructions, STAC and CLAC, to set and clear it. This patch adds those instructions, via alternative(), when the SMAP feature is enabled. It also adds X86_EFLAGS_AC unconditionally to the SYSCALL entry mask; there is simply no reason to make that one conditional. Signed-off-by: H.

2012-09-18x86, fpu: Unify signal handling code paths for x86 and x86_64 kernelsSuresh Siddha
Currently for x86 and x86_32 binaries, fpstate in the user sigframe is copied to/from the fpstate in the task struct. And in the case of signal delivery for x86_64 binaries, if the fpstate is live in the CPU registers, then the live state is copied directly to the user sigframe. Otherwise fpstate in the task struct is copied to the user sigframe. During restore, fpstate in the user sigframe is restored directly to the live CPU registers. Historically, different code paths led to different bugs. For example, x86_64 code path was not preemption safe till recently. Also there is lot of code duplication for support of new features like xsave etc. Unify signal handling code paths for x86 and x86_64 kernels. New strategy is as follows: Signal delivery: Both for 32/64-bit frames, align the core math frame area to 64bytes as needed by xsave (this where the main fpu/extended state gets copied to and excludes the legacy compatibility fsave header for the 32-bit [f]xsave frames). If the state is live, copy the register state directly to the user frame. If not live, copy the state in the thread struct to the user frame. And for 32-bit [f]xsave frames, construct the fsave header separately before the actual [f]xsave area. Signal return: As the 32-bit frames with [f]xstate has an additional 'fsave' header, copy everything back from the user sigframe to the fpstate in the task structure and reconstruct the fxstate from the 'fsave' header (Also user passed pointers may not be correctly aligned for any attempt to directly restore any partial state). At the next fpstate usage, everything will be restored to the live CPU registers. For all the 64-bit frames and the 32-bit fsave frame, restore the state from the user sigframe directly to the live CPU registers. 64-bit signals always restored the math frame directly, so we can expect the math frame pointer to be correctly aligned. For 32-bit fsave frames, there are no alignment requirements, so we can restore the state directly. "lat_sig catch" microbenchmark numbers (for x86, x86_64, x86_32 binaries) are with in the noise range with this change.

2012-06-14x86, compat: Use test_thread_flag(TIF_IA32) in compat signal deliverySuresh Siddha
Signal delivery compat path may not have the 'TS_COMPAT' flag (that flag indicates how we entered the kernel). So use test_thread_flag(TIF_IA32) instead of is_ia32_task(): one of the functions of TIF_IA32 is just what kind of signal frame we want.
