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.

2013-04-26TTY: fix atime/mtime regressionJiri Slaby
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.

* The EFI variable anti-bricking algorithm merged in -rc8 broke booting on some Apple machines because they implement EFI spec 1.10, which doesn't provide a QueryVariableInfo() runtime function and the logic used to check for the existence of that function was insufficient.

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.

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.

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.

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.

It is likely a hardcoded firmware default. The circumstances where this bug has been observed indicates that the trigger is related to timing or some other factor the host cannot control. Repeating the exact same configuration sequence that caused it to trigger once, will not necessarily cause it to trigger the next time. Reproducing the bug is therefore difficult. This opens up a possibility that the bug is more common than we can confirm, because affected devices often will work properly again after a reset. A procedure most users are likely to try out before reporting a bug. Unconditionally rewriting the destination address if the first digit of the received packet is 0, is considered an acceptable compromise since we already have to inspect this digit. The simplification will cause unnecessary rewrites if the real address starts with 0, but this is still better than adding additional tests for this particular case.

2013-04-19net: qmi_wwan: fixup missing ethernet header (firmware bug workaround)Bjørn Mork
A number of LTE devices from different vendors all suffer from the same firmware bug: Most of the packets received from the device while it is attached to a LTE network will not have an ethernet header. The devices work as expected when attached to 2G or 3G networks, sending an ethernet header with all packets. This driver is not aware of which network the modem attached to, and even if it were there are still some packet types which are always received with the header intact. All devices supported by this driver have severely limited networking capabilities: - can only transmit IPv4, IPv6 and possibly ARP - can only support a single host hardware address at any time - will only do point-to-point communcation with the host Because of this, we are able to reliably identify any bogus raw IP packets by simply looking at the 4 IP version bits. All we need to do is to avoid 4 or 6 in the first digit of the mac address. This workaround ensures this, and fix up the received packets as necessary. Given the distribution of the bug, it is believed that the source is the chipset vendor. The devices which are verified to be affected are: Huawei E392u-12 (Qualcomm MDM9200) Pantech UML290 (Qualcomm MDM9600) Novatel USB551L (Qualcomm MDM9600) Novatel E362 (Qualcomm MDM9600) It is believed that the bug depend on firmware revision, which means that possibly all devices based on the above mentioned chipset may be affected if we consider all available firmware revisions. The information about affected devices and versions is likely incomplete. As the additional overhead for packets not needing this fixup is very small, it is considered acceptable to apply the workaround to all devices handled by this driver.

Nikolay Aleksandrov says: ==================== This patch-set fixes mainly bugs on enslave failure and one occasion of a needed locking. The patches are: 1. On enslave failure mc addresses are not flushed from the slave 2. On enslave failure vlans are not cleaned up from the slave 3. On enslave failure the bond's primary and curr_active_slave are not cleaned up (which might result in use of freed memory) 4. On enslave failure netpoll is not disabled which might result in a memory leak 5. In bond_mc_swap() the bond's mc addr list is walked without netif_addr_lock, since it can be called without rtnl, add it v2: patch 01 - fix log message and remove unnecessary code move ==================== Signed-off-by: Jay Vosburgh <fubar@us.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: David S.

2013-04-19bonding: disable netpoll on enslave failurenikolay@redhat.com
slave_disable_netpoll() is not called upon enslave failure which would lead to a memory leak. Call slave_disable_netpoll() after err_detach as that's the first error path after enabling netpoll on that slave. Signed-off-by: Nikolay Aleksandrov <nikolay@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: David S.

2013-04-19bonding: primary_slave & curr_active_slave are not cleaned on enslave failurenikolay@redhat.com
On enslave failure primary_slave can point to new_slave which is to be freed, and the same applies to curr_active_slave. So check if this is the case and clean up properly after err_detach because that's the first error code path after they're set.

2013-04-19irda: small read past the end of array in debug codeDan Carpenter
The "reason" can come from skb->data[] and it hasn't been capped so it can be from 0-255 instead of just 0-6. For example in irlmp_state_dtr() the code does: reason = skb->data[3]; ... irlmp_disconnect_indication(self, reason, skb); Also LMREASON has a couple other values which don't have entries in the irlmp_reasons[] array. And 0xff is a valid reason as well which means "unknown". So far as I can see we don't actually care about "reason" except for in the debug code.

2013-04-19sparc64: Fix race in TLB batch processing.David S. Miller
As reported by Dave Kleikamp, when we emit cross calls to do batched TLB flush processing we have a race because we do not synchronize on the sibling cpus completing the cross call. So meanwhile the TLB batch can be reset (tb->tlb_nr set to zero, etc.) and either flushes are missed or flushes will flush the wrong addresses. Fix this by using generic infrastructure to synchonize on the completion of the cross call. This first required getting the flush_tlb_pending() call out from switch_to() which operates with locks held and interrupts disabled. The problem is that smp_call_function_many() cannot be invoked with IRQs disabled and this is explicitly checked for with WARN_ON_ONCE(). We get the batch processing outside of locked IRQ disabled sections by using some ideas from the powerpc port. Namely, we only batch inside of arch_{enter,leave}_lazy_mmu_mode() calls. If we're not in such a region, we flush TLBs synchronously. 1) Get rid of xcall_flush_tlb_pending and per-cpu type implementations. 2) Do TLB batch cross calls instead via: smp_call_function_many() tlb_pending_func() __flush_tlb_pending() 3) Batch only in lazy mmu sequences: a) Add 'active' member to struct tlb_batch b) Define __HAVE_ARCH_ENTER_LAZY_MMU_MODE c) Set 'active' in arch_enter_lazy_mmu_mode() d) Run batch and clear 'active' in arch_leave_lazy_mmu_mode() e) Check 'active' in tlb_batch_add_one() and do a synchronous flush if it's clear. 4) Add infrastructure for synchronous TLB page flushes. a) Implement __flush_tlb_page and per-cpu variants, patch as needed. b) Likewise for xcall_flush_tlb_page. c) Implement smp_flush_tlb_page() to invoke the cross-call. d) Wire up global_flush_tlb_page() to the right routine based upon CONFIG_SMP 5) It turns out that singleton batches are very common, 2 out of every 3 batch flushes have only a single entry in them. The batch flush waiting is very expensive, both because of the poll on sibling cpu completeion, as well as because passing the tlb batch pointer to the sibling cpus invokes a shared memory dereference. Therefore, in flush_tlb_pending(), if there is only one entry in the batch perform a completely asynchronous global_flush_tlb_page() instead.

2013-04-19ARM: 7699/1: sched_clock: Add more notrace to prevent recursionStephen Boyd
cyc_to_sched_clock() is called by sched_clock() and cyc_to_ns() is called by cyc_to_sched_clock(). I suspect that some compilers inline both of these functions into sched_clock() and so we've been getting away without having a notrace marking. It seems that my compiler isn't inlining cyc_to_sched_clock() though, so I'm hitting a recursion bug when I enable the function graph tracer, causing my system to crash. Marking these functions notrace fixes it. Technically cyc_to_ns() doesn't need the notrace because it's already marked inline, but let's just add it so that if we ever remove inline from that function it doesn't blow up.

On the mac80211 bits, Johannes says: "Sadly, I have another pull request -- the idle handling fix broke LED handling in some cases." and: "Yet one more! This fixes a fairly important/annoying bug -- when roaming between multiple APs of the same network, the system could get stuck thinking it was connected to the old one while it really wasn't." On top of that... Arend sends a brcmfmac patch that removes advertising a feature that isn't actually fully supported, and a brcmsmac patch that rearranges code to request firmware at IFF_UP to play more nicely with being built into the kernel. Felix gives us a minor ath9k_htc fix to support the newly released open source firmware, and an ath9k_hw initvals fix to improve device stability. Rafał Miłecki provides a fix for an ssb regression that caused a serious performance problem with b43. Zefir Kurtisi offers an ath9k fix to change some kmalloc flags to allow the DFS detector to be called in softirq context. Please let me know if there are problems. If these don't make 3.9, I'll just pull them into wireless-next -- just let me know if you want to do it that way! ==================== Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
2013-04-19tcp: call tcp_replace_ts_recent() from tcp_ack()Eric Dumazet
commit bd090dfc634d (tcp: tcp_replace_ts_recent() should not be called from tcp_validate_incoming()) introduced a TS ecr bug in slow path processing. 1 A > B P. 1:10001(10000) ack 1 <nop,nop,TS val 1001 ecr 200> 2 B < A . 1:1(0) ack 1 win 257 <sack 9001:10001,TS val 300 ecr 1001> 3 A > B . 1:1001(1000) ack 1 win 227 <nop,nop,TS val 1002 ecr 200> 4 A > B . 1001:2001(1000) ack 1 win 227 <nop,nop,TS val 1002 ecr 200> (ecr 200 should be ecr 300 in packets 3 & 4) Problem is tcp_ack() can trigger send of new packets (retransmits), reflecting the prior TSval, instead of the TSval contained in the currently processed incoming packet. Fix this by calling tcp_replace_ts_recent() from tcp_ack() after the checks, but before the actions.
