2015-01-11mm: fix corner case in anon_vma endless growing preventionKonstantin Khlebnikov
Fix for BUG_ON(anon_vma->degree) splashes in unlink_anon_vmas() ("kernel BUG at mm/rmap.c:399!") caused by commit 7a3ef208e662 ("mm: prevent endless growth of anon_vma hierarchy") Anon_vma_clone() is usually called for a copy of source vma in destination argument. If source vma has anon_vma it should be already in dst->anon_vma. NULL in dst->anon_vma is used as a sign that it's called from anon_vma_fork(). In this case anon_vma_clone() finds anon_vma for reusing. Vma_adjust() calls it differently and this breaks anon_vma reusing logic: anon_vma_clone() links vma to old anon_vma and updates degree counters but vma_adjust() overrides vma->anon_vma right after that. As a result final unlink_anon_vmas() decrements degree for wrong anon_vma. This patch assigns ->anon_vma before calling anon_vma_clone().

2015-01-11mm: Don't count the stack guard page towards RLIMIT_STACKLinus Torvalds
Commit fee7e49d4514 ("mm: propagate error from stack expansion even for guard page") made sure that we return the error properly for stack growth conditions. It also theorized that counting the guard page towards the stack limit might break something, but also said "Let's see if anybody notices". Somebody did notice. Apparently android-x86 sets the stack limit very close to the limit indeed, and including the guard page in the rlimit check causes the android 'zygote' process problems. So this adds the (fairly trivial) code to make the stack rlimit check be against the actual real stack size, rather than the size of the vma that includes the guard page.

2014-12-13mm: convert i_mmap_mutex to rwsemDavidlohr Bueso
The i_mmap_mutex is a close cousin of the anon vma lock, both protecting similar data, one for file backed pages and the other for anon memory. To this end, this lock can also be a rwsem. In addition, there are some important opportunities to share the lock when there are no tree modifications. This conversion is straightforward. For now, all users take the write lock.

2014-12-03mm: fix anon_vma_clone() error treatmentDaniel Forrest
Andrew Morton noticed that the error return from anon_vma_clone() was being dropped and replaced with -ENOMEM (which is not itself a bug because the only error return value from anon_vma_clone() is -ENOMEM). I did an audit of callers of anon_vma_clone() and discovered an actual bug where the error return was being lost. In __split_vma(), between Linux 3.11 and 3.12 the code was changed so the err variable is used before the call to anon_vma_clone() and the default initial value of -ENOMEM is overwritten. So a failure of anon_vma_clone() will return success since err at this point is now zero. Below is a patch which fixes this bug and also propagates the error return value from anon_vma_clone() in all cases.

2014-11-18x86, mpx: Cleanup unused bound tablesDave Hansen
The previous patch allocates bounds tables on-demand. As noted in an earlier description, these can add up to *HUGE* amounts of memory. This has caused OOMs in practice when running tests. This patch adds support for freeing bounds tables when they are no longer in use. There are two types of mappings in play when unmapping tables: 1. The mapping with the actual data, which userspace is munmap()ing or brk()ing away, etc... 2. The mapping for the bounds table *backing* the data (is tagged with VM_MPX, see the patch "add MPX specific mmap interface"). If userspace use the prctl() indroduced earlier in this patchset to enable the management of bounds tables in kernel, when it unmaps the first type of mapping with the actual data, the kernel needs to free the mapping for the bounds table backing the data. This patch hooks in at the very end of do_unmap() to do so. We look at the addresses being unmapped and find the bounds directory entries and tables which cover those addresses. If an entire table is unused, we clear associated directory entry and free the table. Once we unmap the bounds table, we would have a bounds directory entry pointing at empty address space. That address space might now be allocated for some other (random) use, and the MPX hardware might now try to walk it as if it were a bounds table. That would be bad. So any unmapping of an enture bounds table has to be accompanied by a corresponding write to the bounds directory entry to invalidate it. That write to the bounds directory can fault, which causes the following problem: Since we are doing the freeing from munmap() (and other paths like it), we hold mmap_sem for write. If we fault, the page fault handler will attempt to acquire mmap_sem for read and we will deadlock. To avoid the deadlock, we pagefault_disable() when touching the bounds directory entry and use a get_user_pages() to resolve the fault. The unmapping of bounds tables happends under vm_munmap(). We also (indirectly) call vm_munmap() to _do_ the unmapping of the bounds tables. We avoid unbounded recursion by disallowing freeing of bounds tables *for* bounds tables. This would not occur normally, so should not have any practical impact. Being strict about it here helps ensure that we do not have an exploitable stack overflow.

2014-10-29mm, thp: fix collapsing of hugepages on madviseDavid Rientjes
If an anonymous mapping is not allowed to fault thp memory and then madvise(MADV_HUGEPAGE) is used after fault, khugepaged will never collapse this memory into thp memory. This occurs because the madvise(2) handler for thp, hugepage_madvise(), clears VM_NOHUGEPAGE on the stack and it isn't stored in vma->vm_flags until the final action of madvise_behavior(). This causes the khugepaged_enter_vma_merge() to be a no-op in hugepage_madvise() when the vma had previously had VM_NOHUGEPAGE set. Fix this by passing the correct vma flags to the khugepaged mm slot handler. There's no chance khugepaged can run on this vma until after madvise_behavior() returns since we hold mm->mmap_sem. It would be possible to clear VM_NOHUGEPAGE directly from vma->vm_flags in hugepage_advise(), but I didn't want to introduce special case behavior into madvise_behavior(). I think it's best to just let it always set vma->vm_flags itself. Signed-off-by: David Rientjes <rientjes@google.com> Reported-by: Suleiman Souhlal <suleiman@google.com> Cc: "Kirill A.

2014-10-14mm: softdirty: enable write notifications on VMAs after VM_SOFTDIRTY clearedPeter Feiner
For VMAs that don't want write notifications, PTEs created for read faults have their write bit set. If the read fault happens after VM_SOFTDIRTY is cleared, then the PTE's softdirty bit will remain clear after subsequent writes. Here's a simple code snippet to demonstrate the bug: char* m = mmap(NULL, getpagesize(), PROT_READ | PROT_WRITE, MAP_ANONYMOUS | MAP_SHARED, -1, 0); system("echo 4 > /proc/$PPID/clear_refs"); /* clear VM_SOFTDIRTY */ assert(*m == '\0'); /* new PTE allows write access */ assert(!soft_dirty(x)); *m = 'x'; /* should dirty the page */ assert(soft_dirty(x)); /* fails */ With this patch, write notifications are enabled when VM_SOFTDIRTY is cleared. Furthermore, to avoid unnecessary faults, write notifications are disabled when VM_SOFTDIRTY is set. As a side effect of enabling and disabling write notifications with care, this patch fixes a bug in mprotect where vm_page_prot bits set by drivers were zapped on mprotect. An analogous bug was fixed in mmap by commit c9d0bf241451 ("mm: uncached vma support with writenotify").

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tj/percpu Pull percpu updates from Tejun Heo: "A lot of activities on percpu front. Notable changes are... - percpu allocator now can take @gfp. If @gfp doesn't contain GFP_KERNEL, it tries to allocate from what's already available to the allocator and a work item tries to keep the reserve around certain level so that these atomic allocations usually succeed. This will replace the ad-hoc percpu memory pool used by blk-throttle and also be used by the planned blkcg support for writeback IOs. Please note that I noticed a bug in how @gfp is interpreted while preparing this pull request and applied the fix 6ae833c7fe0c ("percpu: fix how @gfp is interpreted by the percpu allocator") just now. - percpu_ref now uses longs for percpu and global counters instead of ints. It leads to more sparse packing of the percpu counters on 64bit machines but the overhead should be negligible and this allows using percpu_ref for refcnting pages and in-memory objects directly. - The switching between percpu and single counter modes of a percpu_ref is made independent of putting the base ref and a percpu_ref can now optionally be initialized in single or killed mode. This allows avoiding percpu shutdown latency for cases where the refcounted objects may be synchronously created and destroyed in rapid succession with only a fraction of them reaching fully operational status (SCSI probing does this when combined with blk-mq support). It's also planned to be used to implement forced single mode to detect underflow more timely for debugging.

This patch (of 6): The i_mmap_writable field counts existing writable mappings of an address_space. To allow drivers to prevent new writable mappings, make this counter signed and prevent new writable mappings if it is negative. This is modelled after i_writecount and DENYWRITE. This will be required by the shmem-sealing infrastructure to prevent any new writable mappings after the WRITE seal has been set. In case there exists a writable mapping, this operation will fail with EBUSY. Note that we rely on the fact that iff you already own a writable mapping, you can increase the counter without using the helpers. This is the same that we do for i_writecount.

Using arch_vma_name to give special mappings a name is awkward. x86 currently implements it by comparing the start address of the vma to the expected address of the vdso. This requires tracking the start address of special mappings and is probably buggy if a special vma is split or moved. Improve _install_special_mapping to just name the vma directly. Use it to give the x86 vvar area a name, which should make CRIU's life easier. As a side effect, the vvar area will show up in core dumps. This could be considered weird and is fixable.

2014-04-07mm: per-thread vma cachingDavidlohr Bueso
This patch is a continuation of efforts trying to optimize find_vma(), avoiding potentially expensive rbtree walks to locate a vma upon faults. The original approach (https://lkml.org/lkml/2013/11/1/410), where the largest vma was also cached, ended up being too specific and random, thus further comparison with other approaches were needed. There are two things to consider when dealing with this, the cache hit rate and the latency of find_vma(). Improving the hit-rate does not necessarily translate in finding the vma any faster, as the overhead of any fancy caching schemes can be too high to consider. We currently cache the last used vma for the whole address space, which provides a nice optimization, reducing the total cycles in find_vma() by up to 250%, for workloads with good locality. On the other hand, this simple scheme is pretty much useless for workloads with poor locality. Analyzing ebizzy runs shows that, no matter how many threads are running, the mmap_cache hit rate is less than 2%, and in many situations below 1%. The proposed approach is to replace this scheme with a small per-thread cache, maximizing hit rates at a very low maintenance cost. Invalidations are performed by simply bumping up a 32-bit sequence number. The only expensive operation is in the rare case of a seq number overflow, where all caches that share the same address space are flushed. Upon a miss, the proposed replacement policy is based on the page number that contains the virtual address in question. Concretely, the following results are seen on an 80 core, 8 socket x86-64 box: 1) System bootup: Most programs are single threaded, so the per-thread scheme does improve ~50% hit rate by just adding a few more slots to the cache. +----------------+----------+------------------+ | caching scheme | hit-rate | cycles (billion) | +----------------+----------+------------------+ | baseline | 50.61% | 19.90 | | patched | 73.45% | 13.58 | +----------------+----------+------------------+ 2) Kernel build: This one is already pretty good with the current approach as we're dealing with good locality. +----------------+----------+------------------+ | caching scheme | hit-rate | cycles (billion) | +----------------+----------+------------------+ | baseline | 75.28% | 11.03 | | patched | 88.09% | 9.31 | +----------------+----------+------------------+ 3) Oracle 11g Data Mining (4k pages): Similar to the kernel build workload. +----------------+----------+------------------+ | caching scheme | hit-rate | cycles (billion) | +----------------+----------+------------------+ | baseline | 70.66% | 17.14 | | patched | 91.15% | 12.57 | +----------------+----------+------------------+ 4) Ebizzy: There's a fair amount of variation from run to run, but this approach always shows nearly perfect hit rates, while baseline is just about non-existent. The amounts of cycles can fluctuate between anywhere from ~60 to ~116 for the baseline scheme, but this approach reduces it considerably. For instance, with 80 threads: +----------------+----------+------------------+ | caching scheme | hit-rate | cycles (billion) | +----------------+----------+------------------+ | baseline | 1.06% | 91.54 | | patched | 99.97% | 14.18 | +----------------+----------+------------------+ [akpm@linux-foundation.org: fix nommu build, per Davidlohr] [akpm@linux-foundation.org: document vmacache_valid() logic] [akpm@linux-foundation.org: attempt to untangle header files] [akpm@linux-foundation.org: add vmacache_find() BUG_ON] [hughd@google.com: add vmacache_valid_mm() (from Oleg)] [akpm@linux-foundation.org: coding-style fixes] [akpm@linux-foundation.org: adjust and enhance comments] Signed-off-by: Davidlohr Bueso <davidlohr@hp.com> Reviewed-by: Rik van Riel <riel@redhat.com> Acked-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org> Reviewed-by: Michel Lespinasse <walken@google.com> Cc: Oleg Nesterov <oleg@redhat.com> Tested-by: Hugh Dickins <hughd@google.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>

The VM_SOFTDIRTY bit affects vma merge routine: if two VMAs has all bits in vm_flags matched except dirty bit the kernel can't longer merge them and this forces the kernel to generate new VMAs instead.

2014-01-23mm: audit/fix non-modular users of module_init in core codePaul Gortmaker
Code that is obj-y (always built-in) or dependent on a bool Kconfig (built-in or absent) can never be modular. So using module_init as an alias for __initcall can be somewhat misleading. Fix these up now, so that we can relocate module_init from init.h into module.h in the future. If we don't do this, we'd have to add module.h to obviously non-modular code, and that would be a worse thing. The audit targets the following module_init users for change: mm/ksm.c bool KSM mm/mmap.c bool MMU mm/huge_memory.c bool TRANSPARENT_HUGEPAGE mm/mmu_notifier.c bool MMU_NOTIFIER Note that direct use of __initcall is discouraged, vs. one of the priority categorized subgroups. As __initcall gets mapped onto device_initcall, our use of subsys_initcall (which makes sense for these files) will thus change this registration from level 6-device to level 4-subsys (i.e. slightly earlier). However no observable impact of that difference has been observed during testing. One might think that core_initcall (l2) or postcore_initcall (l3) would be more appropriate for anything in mm/ but if we look at some actual init functions themselves, we see things like: mm/huge_memory.c --> hugepage_init --> hugepage_init_sysfs mm/mmap.c --> init_user_reserve --> sysctl_user_reserve_kbytes mm/ksm.c --> ksm_init --> sysfs_create_group and hence the choice of subsys_initcall (l4) seems reasonable, and at the same time minimizes the risk of changing the priority too drastically all at once. We can adjust further in the future. Also, several instances of missing ";" at EOL are fixed.

2013-11-13mm: ensure get_unmapped_area() returns higher address than mmap_min_addrAkira Takeuchi
This patch fixes the problem that get_unmapped_area() can return illegal address and result in failing mmap(2) etc. In case that the address higher than PAGE_SIZE is set to /proc/sys/vm/mmap_min_addr, the address lower than mmap_min_addr can be returned by get_unmapped_area(), even if you do not pass any virtual address hint (i.e. the second argument). This is because the current get_unmapped_area() code does not take into account mmap_min_addr. This leads to two actual problems as follows: 1. mmap(2) can fail with EPERM on the process without CAP_SYS_RAWIO, although any illegal parameter is not passed. 2. The bottom-up search path after the top-down search might not work in arch_get_unmapped_area_topdown(). Note: The first and third chunk of my patch, which changes "len" check, are for more precise check using mmap_min_addr, and not for solving the above problem.

2013-11-13mmap: arch_get_unmapped_area(): use proper mmap base for bottom up directionHeiko Carstens
This is more or less the generic variant of commit 41aacc1eea64 ("x86 get_unmapped_area: Access mmap_legacy_base through mm_struct member"). So effectively architectures which use an own arch_pick_mmap_layout() implementation but call the generic arch_get_unmapped_area() now can also randomize their mmap_base. All architectures which have an own arch_pick_mmap_layout() and call the generic arch_get_unmapped_area() (arm64, s390, tile) currently set mmap_base to TASK_UNMAPPED_BASE. This is also true for the generic arch_pick_mmap_layout() function. So this change is a no-op currently.

Pavel reported that in case if vma area get unmapped and then mapped (or expanded) in-place, the soft dirty tracker won't be able to recognize this situation since it works on pte level and ptes are get zapped on unmap, loosing soft dirty bit of course. So to resolve this situation we need to track actions on vma level, there VM_SOFTDIRTY flag comes in. When new vma area created (or old expanded) we set this bit, and keep it here until application calls for clearing soft dirty bit. Thus when user space application track memory changes now it can detect if vma area is renewed.

correct_wcount and inode in mmap_region() just complicate the code. This boolean was needed previously, when deny_write_access() was called before vma_merge(), now we can simply check VM_DENYWRITE and do allow_write_access() if it is set. allow_write_access() checks file != NULL, so this is safe even if it was possible to use VM_DENYWRITE && !file. Just we need to ensure we use the same file which was deny_write_access()'ed, so the patch also moves "file = vma->vm_file" down after allow_write_access().

2013-09-11mm: shift VM_GROWS* check from mmap_region() to do_mmap_pgoff()Oleg Nesterov
mmap() doesn't allow the non-anonymous mappings with VM_GROWS* bit set. In particular this means that mmap_region()->vma_merge(file, vm_flags) must always fail if "vm_flags & VM_GROWS" is set incorrectly. So it does not make sense to check VM_GROWS* after we already allocated the new vma, the only caller, do_mmap_pgoff(), which can pass this flag can do the check itself. And this looks a bit more correct, mmap_region() already unmapped the old mapping at this stage. But if mmap() is going to fail, it should avoid do_munmap() if possible. Note: we check VM_GROWS at the end to ensure that do_mmap_pgoff() won't return EINVAL in the case when it currently returns another error code. Many thanks to Hugh who nacked the buggy v1.

2013-08-16Fix TLB gather virtual address range invalidation corner casesLinus Torvalds
Ben Tebulin reported: "Since v3.7.2 on two independent machines a very specific Git repository fails in 9/10 cases on git-fsck due to an SHA1/memory failures. This only occurs on a very specific repository and can be reproduced stably on two independent laptops. Git mailing list ran out of ideas and for me this looks like some very exotic kernel issue" and bisected the failure to the backport of commit 53a59fc67f97 ("mm: limit mmu_gather batching to fix soft lockups on !CONFIG_PREEMPT"). That commit itself is not actually buggy, but what it does is to make it much more likely to hit the partial TLB invalidation case, since it introduces a new case in tlb_next_batch() that previously only ever happened when running out of memory. The real bug is that the TLB gather virtual memory range setup is subtly buggered. It was introduced in commit 597e1c3580b7 ("mm/mmu_gather: enable tlb flush range in generic mmu_gather"), and the range handling was already fixed at least once in commit e6c495a96ce0 ("mm: fix the TLB range flushed when __tlb_remove_page() runs out of slots"), but that fix was not complete. The problem with the TLB gather virtual address range is that it isn't set up by the initial tlb_gather_mmu() initialization (which didn't get the TLB range information), but it is set up ad-hoc later by the functions that actually flush the TLB. And so any such case that forgot to update the TLB range entries would potentially miss TLB invalidates. Rather than try to figure out exactly which particular ad-hoc range setup was missing (I personally suspect it's the hugetlb case in zap_huge_pmd(), which didn't have the same logic as zap_pte_range() did), this patch just gets rid of the problem at the source: make the TLB range information available to tlb_gather_mmu(), and initialize it when initializing all the other tlb gather fields. This makes the patch larger, but conceptually much simpler. And the end result is much more understandable; even if you want to play games with partial ranges when invalidating the TLB contents in chunks, now the range information is always there, and anybody who doesn't want to bother with it won't introduce subtle bugs. Ben verified that this fixes his problem.

2013-07-31mm: mempolicy: fix mbind_range() && vma_adjust() interactionOleg Nesterov
vma_adjust() does vma_set_policy(vma, vma_policy(next)) and this is doubly wrong: 1. This leaks vma->vm_policy if it is not NULL and not equal to next->vm_policy. This can happen if vma_merge() expands "area", not prev (case 8). 2. This sets the wrong policy if vma_merge() joins prev and area, area is the vma the caller needs to update and it still has the old policy. Revert commit 1444f92c8498 ("mm: merging memory blocks resets mempolicy") which introduced these problems. Change mbind_range() to recheck mpol_equal() after vma_merge() to fix the problem that commit tried to address.

2013-07-10mm: remove free_area_cacheMichel Lespinasse
Since all architectures have been converted to use vm_unmapped_area(), there is no remaining use for the free_area_cache.
