2012-10-08MPILIB: Provide a function to read raw data into an MPIDavid Howells
Provide a function to read raw data of a predetermined size into an MPI rather than expecting the size to be encoded within the data. The data is assumed to represent an unsigned integer, and the resulting MPI will be positive. The function looks like this: MPI mpi_read_raw_data(const void *, size_t); This is useful for reading ASN.1 integer primitives where the length is encoded in the ASN.1 metadata.

2012-10-08X.509: Add an ASN.1 decoderDavid Howells
Add an ASN.1 BER/DER/CER decoder. This uses the bytecode from the ASN.1 compiler in the previous patch to inform it as to what to expect to find in the encoded byte stream. The output from the compiler also tells it what functions to call on what tags, thus allowing the caller to retrieve information. The decoder is called as follows: int asn1_decoder(const struct asn1_decoder *decoder, void *context, const unsigned char *data, size_t datalen); The decoder argument points to the bytecode from the ASN.1 compiler. context is the caller's context and is passed to the action functions. data and datalen define the byte stream to be decoded. Note that the decoder is currently limited to datalen being less than 64K. This reduces the amount of stack space used by the decoder because ASN.1 is a nested construct. Similarly, the decoder is limited to a maximum of 10 levels of constructed data outside of a leaf node also in an effort to keep stack usage down. These restrictions can be raised if necessary.

2012-10-08X.509: Add simple ASN.1 grammar compilerDavid Howells
Add a simple ASN.1 grammar compiler. This produces a bytecode output that can be fed to a decoder to inform the decoder how to interpret the ASN.1 stream it is trying to parse. Action functions can be specified in the grammar by interpolating: ({ foo }) after a type, for example: SubjectPublicKeyInfo ::= SEQUENCE { algorithm AlgorithmIdentifier, subjectPublicKey BIT STRING ({ do_key_data }) } The decoder is expected to call these after matching this type and parsing the contents if it is a constructed type. The grammar compiler does not currently support the SET type (though it does support SET OF) as I can't see a good way of tracking which members have been encountered yet without using up extra stack space. Currently, the grammar compiler will fail if more than 256 bytes of bytecode would be produced or more than 256 actions have been specified as it uses 8-bit jump values and action indices to keep space usage down.

2012-10-08X.509: Add utility functions to render OIDs as stringsDavid Howells
Add a pair of utility functions to render OIDs as strings. The first takes an encoded OID and turns it into a "a.b.c.d" form string: int sprint_oid(const void *data, size_t datasize, char *buffer, size_t bufsize); The second takes an OID enum index and calls the first on the data held therein: int sprint_OID(enum OID oid, char *buffer, size_t bufsize); Signed-off-by: David Howells <dhowells@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Rusty Russell <rusty@rustcorp.com.au>
2012-10-08X.509: Implement simple static OID registryDavid Howells
Implement a simple static OID registry that allows the mapping of an encoded OID to an enum value for ease of use. The OID registry index enum appears in the: linux/oid_registry.h header file. A script generates the registry from lines in the header file that look like: <sp*>OID_foo,<sp*>/*<sp*><sp*>*/ The actual OID is taken to be represented by the numbers with interpolated dots in the comment. All other lines in the header are ignored. The registry is queries by calling: OID look_up_oid(const void *data, size_t datasize); This returns a number from the registry enum representing the OID if found or OID__NR if not.

2012-10-08RSA: Fix signature verification for shorter signaturesDavid Howells
gpg can produce a signature file where length of signature is less than the modulus size because the amount of space an MPI takes up is kept as low as possible by discarding leading zeros. This regularly happens for several modules during the build. Fix it by relaxing check in RSA verification code. Thanks to Tomas Mraz and Miloslav Trmac for help.

2012-10-08KEYS: Provide signature verification with an asymmetric keyDavid Howells
Provide signature verification using an asymmetric-type key to indicate the public key to be used. The API is a single function that can be found in crypto/public_key.h: int verify_signature(const struct key *key, const struct public_key_signature *sig) The first argument is the appropriate key to be used and the second argument is the parsed signature data: struct public_key_signature { u8 *digest; u16 digest_size; enum pkey_hash_algo pkey_hash_algo : 8; union { MPI mpi[2]; struct { MPI s; /* m^d mod n */ } rsa; struct { MPI r; MPI s; } dsa; }; }; This should be filled in prior to calling the function. The hash algorithm should already have been called and the hash finalised and the output should be in a buffer pointed to by the 'digest' member. Any extra data to be added to the hash by the hash format (eg. PGP) should have been added by the caller prior to finalising the hash. It is assumed that the signature is made up of a number of MPI values. If an algorithm becomes available for which this is not the case, the above structure will have to change. It is also assumed that it will have been checked that the signature algorithm matches the key algorithm.

2012-10-08KEYS: Asymmetric key pluggable data parsersDavid Howells
The instantiation data passed to the asymmetric key type are expected to be formatted in some way, and there are several possible standard ways to format the data. The two obvious standards are OpenPGP keys and X.509 certificates. The latter is especially useful when dealing with UEFI, and the former might be useful when dealing with, say, eCryptfs. Further, it might be desirable to provide formatted blobs that indicate hardware is to be accessed to retrieve the keys or that the keys live unretrievably in a hardware store, but that the keys can be used by means of the hardware. From userspace, the keys can be loaded using the keyctl command, for example, an X.509 binary certificate: keyctl padd asymmetric foo @s <dhowells.pem or a PGP key: keyctl padd asymmetric bar @s <dhowells.pub or a pointer into the contents of the TPM: keyctl add asymmetric zebra "TPM:04982390582905f8" @s Inside the kernel, pluggable parsers register themselves and then get to examine the payload data to see if they can handle it. If they can, they get to: (1) Propose a name for the key, to be used it the name is "" or NULL. (2) Specify the key subtype. (3) Provide the data for the subtype. The key type asks the parser to do its stuff before a key is allocated and thus before the name is set. If successful, the parser stores the suggested data into the key_preparsed_payload struct, which will be either used (if the key is successfully created and instantiated or updated) or discarded.

2012-10-08KEYS: Implement asymmetric key typeDavid Howells
Create a key type that can be used to represent an asymmetric key type for use in appropriate cryptographic operations, such as encryption, decryption, signature generation and signature verification. The key type is "asymmetric" and can provide access to a variety of cryptographic algorithms. Possibly, this would be better as "public_key" - but that has the disadvantage that "public key" is an overloaded term.

2012-10-08KEYS: Add payload preparsing opportunity prior to key instantiate or updateDavid Howells
Give the key type the opportunity to preparse the payload prior to the instantiation and update routines being called. This is done with the provision of two new key type operations: int (*preparse)(struct key_preparsed_payload *prep); void (*free_preparse)(struct key_preparsed_payload *prep); If the first operation is present, then it is called before key creation (in the add/update case) or before the key semaphore is taken (in the update and instantiate cases). The second operation is called to clean up if the first was called. preparse() is given the opportunity to fill in the following structure: struct key_preparsed_payload { char *description; void *type_data[2]; void *payload; const void *data; size_t datalen; size_t quotalen; }; Before the preparser is called, the first three fields will have been cleared, the payload pointer and size will be stored in data and datalen and the default quota size from the key_type struct will be stored into quotalen. The preparser may parse the payload in any way it likes and may store data in the type_data[] and payload fields for use by the instantiate() and update() ops. The preparser may also propose a description for the key by attaching it as a string to the description field. This can be used by passing a NULL or "" description to the add_key() system call or the key_create_or_update() function. This cannot work with request_key() as that required the description to tell the upcall about the key to be created. This, for example permits keys that store PGP public keys to generate their own name from the user ID and public key fingerprint in the key. The instantiate() and update() operations are then modified to look like this: int (*instantiate)(struct key *key, struct key_preparsed_payload *prep); int (*update)(struct key *key, struct key_preparsed_payload *prep); and the new payload data is passed in *prep, whether or not it was preparsed.

2012-09-28module: wait when loading a module which is currently initializing.Rusty Russell
The original module-init-tools module loader used a fnctl lock on the .ko file to avoid attempts to simultaneously load a module. Unfortunately, you can't get an exclusive fcntl lock on a read-only fd, making this not work for read-only mounted filesystems. module-init-tools has a hacky sleep-and-loop for this now. It's not that hard to wait in the kernel, and only return -EEXIST once the first module has finished loading (or continue loading the module if the first one failed to initialize for some reason). It's also consistent with what we do for dependent modules which are still loading. Suggested-by: Lucas De Marchi <lucas.demarchi@profusion.mobi> Signed-off-by: Rusty Russell <rusty@rustcorp.com.au>
2012-09-28module: fix symbol waiting when module fails before initRusty Russell
We use resolve_symbol_wait(), which blocks if the module containing the symbol is still loading. However: 1) The module_wq we use is only woken after calling the modules' init function, but there are other failure paths after the module is placed in the linked list where we need to do the same thing. 2) wake_up() only wakes one waiter, and our waitqueue is shared by all modules, so we need to wake them all. 3) wake_up_all() doesn't imply a memory barrier: I feel happier calling it after we've grabbed and dropped the module_mutex, not just after the state assignment.

2012-09-28Make most arch asm/module.h files use asm-generic/module.hDavid Howells
Use the mapping of Elf_[SPE]hdr, Elf_Addr, Elf_Sym, Elf_Dyn, Elf_Rel/Rela, ELF_R_TYPE() and ELF_R_SYM() to either the 32-bit version or the 64-bit version into asm-generic/module.h for all arches bar MIPS. 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.

IBM reported a soft lockup after applying the fix for the rename_lock deadlock. Commit c83ce989cb5f ("VFS: Fix the nfs sillyrename regression in kernel 2.6.38") was found to be the culprit. The nfs sillyrename fix used DCACHE_DISCONNECTED to indicate that the dentry was killed. This flag can be set on non-killed dentries too, which results in infinite retries when trying to traverse the dentry tree. This patch introduces a separate flag: DCACHE_DENTRY_KILLED, which is only set in d_kill() and makes try_to_ascend() test only this flag. IBM reported successful test results with this patch.

busy_worker_rebind_fn() didn't clear WORKER_REBIND if rebinding failed (CPU is down again). This used to be okay because the flag wasn't used for anything else. However, after 25511a477 "workqueue: reimplement CPU online rebinding to handle idle workers", WORKER_REBIND is also used to command idle workers to rebind. If not cleared, the worker may confuse the next CPU_UP cycle by having REBIND spuriously set or oops / get stuck by prematurely calling idle_worker_rebind().

On some platforms, bootloaders are known to do some interesting RTC programming. Without going into the obscurities as to why this may be the case, suffice it to say the the driver should not make any assumptions about the state of the RTC when the driver loads. In particular, the driver probe should be sure that all interrupts are disabled until otherwise programmed. This was discovered when finding bursty I2C traffic every second on Overo platforms. This I2C overhead was keeping the SoC from hitting deep power states. The cause was found to be the RTC firing every second on the I2C-connected TWL PMIC. Special thanks to Felipe Balbi for suggesting to look for a rogue driver as the source of the I2C traffic rather than the I2C driver itself. Special thanks to Steve Sakoman for helping track down the source of the continuous RTC interrups on the Overo boards.

Commit c76562b6709f ("netvm: prevent a stream-specific deadlock") accidentally replaced the "size" parameter of sk_rmem_schedule() with an unsigned int. This changes the semantics of the comparison in the return statement. In sk_wmem_schedule we have syntactically the same comparison, but "size" is a signed integer. In addition, __sk_mem_schedule() takes a signed integer for its "size" parameter, so there is an implicit type conversion in sk_rmem_schedule() anyway. Revert the "size" parameter back to a signed integer so that the semantics of the expressions in both sk_[rw]mem_schedule() are exactly the same.

2012-09-17slub: consider pfmemalloc_match() in get_partial_node()Joonsoo Kim
get_partial() is currently not checking pfmemalloc_match() meaning that it is possible for pfmemalloc pages to leak to non-pfmemalloc users. This is a problem in the following situation. Assume that there is a request from normal allocation and there are no objects in the per-cpu cache and no node-partial slab. In this case, slab_alloc enters the slow path and new_slab_objects() is called which may return a PFMEMALLOC page. As the current user is not allowed to access PFMEMALLOC page, deactivate_slab() is called ([5091b74a: mm: slub: optimise the SLUB fast path to avoid pfmemalloc checks]) and returns an object from PFMEMALLOC page. Next time, when we get another request from normal allocation, slab_alloc() enters the slow-path and calls new_slab_objects(). In new_slab_objects(), we call get_partial() and get a partial slab which was just deactivated but is a pfmemalloc page. We extract one object from it and re-deactivate. "deactivate -> re-get in get_partial -> re-deactivate" occures repeatedly. As a result, access to PFMEMALLOC page is not properly restricted and it can cause a performance degradation due to frequent deactivation. deactivation frequently. This patch changes get_partial_node() to take pfmemalloc_match() into account and prevents the "deactivate -> re-get in get_partial() scenario. Instead, new_slab() is called.

2012-09-17slab: do ClearSlabPfmemalloc() for all pages of slabMel Gorman
Right now, we call ClearSlabPfmemalloc() for first page of slab when we clear SlabPfmemalloc flag. This is fine for most swap-over-network use cases as it is expected that order-0 pages are in use. Unfortunately it is possible that that __ac_put_obj() checks SlabPfmemalloc on a tail page and while this is harmless, it is sloppy. This patch ensures that the head page is always used.

2012-09-17nbd: clear waiting_queue on shutdownPaul Clements
Fix a serious but uncommon bug in nbd which occurs when there is heavy I/O going to the nbd device while, at the same time, a failure (server, network) or manual disconnect of the nbd connection occurs. There is a small window between the time that the nbd_thread is stopped and the socket is shutdown where requests can continue to be queued to nbd's internal waiting_queue. When this happens, those requests are never completed or freed. The fix is to clear the waiting_queue on shutdown of the nbd device, in the same way that the nbd request queue (queue_head) is already being cleared.

2012-09-17mm/ia64: fix a memory block size bugJianguo Wu
I found following definition in include/linux/memory.h, in my IA64 platform, SECTION_SIZE_BITS is equal to 32, and MIN_MEMORY_BLOCK_SIZE will be 0. #define MIN_MEMORY_BLOCK_SIZE (1 << SECTION_SIZE_BITS) Because MIN_MEMORY_BLOCK_SIZE is int type and length of 32bits, so MIN_MEMORY_BLOCK_SIZE(1 << 32) will will equal to 0. Actually when SECTION_SIZE_BITS >= 31, MIN_MEMORY_BLOCK_SIZE will be wrong. This will cause wrong system memory infomation in sysfs. I think it should be: #define MIN_MEMORY_BLOCK_SIZE (1UL << SECTION_SIZE_BITS) And "echo offline > memory0/state" will cause following call trace: kernel BUG at mm/memory_hotplug.c:885! sh[6455]: bugcheck! 0 [1] Pid: 6455, CPU 0, comm: sh psr : 0000101008526030 ifs : 8000000000000fa4 ip : [<a0000001008c40f0>] Not tainted (3.6.0-rc1) ip is at offline_pages+0x210/0xee0 Call Trace: show_stack+0x80/0xa0 show_regs+0x640/0x920 die+0x190/0x2c0 die_if_kernel+0x50/0x80 ia64_bad_break+0x3d0/0x6e0 ia64_native_leave_kernel+0x0/0x270 offline_pages+0x210/0xee0 alloc_pages_current+0x180/0x2a0 Signed-off-by: Jianguo Wu <wujianguo@huawei.com> Signed-off-by: Jiang Liu <jiang.liu@huawei.com> Cc: "Luck, Tony" <tony.luck@intel.com> Reviewed-by: Michal Hocko <mhocko@suse.cz> Cc: <stable@vger.kernel.org> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>

2012-09-17fs/proc: fix potential unregister_sysctl_table hangFrancesco Ruggeri
The unregister_sysctl_table() function hangs if all references to its ctl_table_header structure are not dropped. This can happen sometimes because of a leak in proc_sys_lookup(): proc_sys_lookup() gets a reference to the table via lookup_entry(), but it does not release it when a subsequent call to sysctl_follow_link() fails. This patch fixes this leak by making sure the reference is always dropped on return. See also commit 076c3eed2c31 ("sysctl: Rewrite proc_sys_lookup introducing find_entry and lookup_entry") which reorganized this code in 3.4. Tested in Linux 3.4.4.

2012-09-16Revert "sched: Improve scalability via 'CPU buddies', which withstand random ↵Linus Torvalds
perturbations" This reverts commit 970e178985cadbca660feb02f4d2ee3a09f7fdda. Nikolay Ulyanitsky reported thatthe 3.6-rc5 kernel has a 15-20% performance drop on PostgreSQL 9.2 on his machine (running "pgbench"). Borislav Petkov was able to reproduce this, and bisected it to this commit 970e178985ca ("sched: Improve scalability via 'CPU buddies' ...") apparently because the new single-idle-buddy model simply doesn't find idle CPU's to reschedule on aggressively enough. Mike Galbraith suspects that it is likely due to the user-mode spinlocks in PostgreSQL not reacting well to preemption, but we don't really know the details - I'll just revert the commit for now. There are hopefully other approaches to improve scheduler scalability without it causing these kinds of downsides.
