2016-09-23cgroup: fix invalid controller enable rejections with cgroup namespaceTejun Heo
On the v2 hierarchy, "cgroup.subtree_control" rejects controller enables if the cgroup has processes in it. The enforcement of this logic assumes that the cgroup wouldn't have any css_sets associated with it if there are no tasks in the cgroup, which is no longer true since a79a908fd2b0 ("cgroup: introduce cgroup namespaces"). When a cgroup namespace is created, it pins the css_set of the creating task to use it as the root css_set of the namespace. This extra reference stays as long as the namespace is around and makes "cgroup.subtree_control" think that the namespace root cgroup is not empty even when it is and thus reject controller enables. Fix it by making cgroup_subtree_control() walk and test emptiness of each css_set instead of testing whether the list_head is empty. While at it, update the comment of cgroup_task_count() to indicate that the returned value may be higher than the number of tasks, which has always been true due to temporary references and doesn't break anything.

2016-09-22perf/core: Limit matching exclusive events to one PMUAlexander Shishkin
An "exclusive" PMU is the one that can only have one event scheduled in at any given time. There may be more than one of such PMUs in a system, though, like Intel PT and BTS. It should be allowed to have one event for either of those inside the same context (there may be other constraints that may prevent this, but those would be hardware-specific). However, the exclusivity code is written so that only one event from any of the "exclusive" PMUs is allowed in a context. Fix this by making the exclusive event filter explicitly match two events' PMUs.

There is no point in trying to configure the trigger of a chained interrupt if no trigger information has been configured. At best this is ignored, and at the worse this confuses the underlying irqchip (which is likely not to handle such a thing), and unnecessarily alarms the user.

2016-09-13cpuset: handle race between CPU hotplug and cpuset_hotplug_workJoonwoo Park
A discrepancy between cpu_online_mask and cpuset's effective_cpus mask is inevitable during hotplug since cpuset defers updating of effective_cpus mask using a workqueue, during which time nothing prevents the system from more hotplug operations. For that reason guarantee_online_cpus() walks up the cpuset hierarchy until it finds an intersection under the assumption that top cpuset's effective_cpus mask intersects with cpu_online_mask even with such a race occurring. However a sequence of CPU hotplugs can open a time window, during which none of the effective CPUs in the top cpuset intersect with cpu_online_mask. For example when there are 4 possible CPUs 0-3 and only CPU0 is online: ======================== =========================== cpu_online_mask top_cpuset.effective_cpus ======================== =========================== echo 1 > cpu2/online. CPU hotplug notifier woke up hotplug work but not yet scheduled. [0,2] [0] echo 0 > cpu0/online. The workqueue is still runnable. [2] [0] ======================== =========================== Now there is no intersection between cpu_online_mask and top_cpuset.effective_cpus. Thus invoking sys_sched_setaffinity() at this moment can cause following: Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 000000d0 ------------[ cut here ]------------ Kernel BUG at ffffffc0001389b0 [verbose debug info unavailable] Internal error: Oops - BUG: 96000005 [#1] PREEMPT SMP Modules linked in: CPU: 2 PID: 1420 Comm: taskset Tainted: G W 4.4.8+ #98 task: ffffffc06a5c4880 ti: ffffffc06e124000 task.ti: ffffffc06e124000 PC is at guarantee_online_cpus+0x2c/0x58 LR is at cpuset_cpus_allowed+0x4c/0x6c <snip> Process taskset (pid: 1420, stack limit = 0xffffffc06e124020) Call trace: [<ffffffc0001389b0>] guarantee_online_cpus+0x2c/0x58 [<ffffffc00013b208>] cpuset_cpus_allowed+0x4c/0x6c [<ffffffc0000d61f0>] sched_setaffinity+0xc0/0x1ac [<ffffffc0000d6374>] SyS_sched_setaffinity+0x98/0xac [<ffffffc000085cb0>] el0_svc_naked+0x24/0x28 The top cpuset's effective_cpus are guaranteed to be identical to cpu_online_mask eventually.

2016-09-10perf/core: Fix a race between mmap_close() and set_output() of AUX eventsAlexander Shishkin
In the mmap_close() path we need to stop all the AUX events that are writing data to the AUX area that we are unmapping, before we can safely free the pages. To determine if an event needs to be stopped, we're comparing its ->rb against the one that's getting unmapped. However, a SET_OUTPUT ioctl may turn up inside an AUX transaction and swizzle event::rb to some other ring buffer, but the transaction will keep writing data to the old ring buffer until the event gets scheduled out. At this point, mmap_close() will skip over such an event and will proceed to free the AUX area, while it's still being used by this event, which will set off a warning in the mmap_close() path and cause a memory corruption. To avoid this, always stop an AUX event before its ->rb is updated; this will release the (potentially) last reference on the AUX area of the buffer. If the event gets restarted, its new ring buffer will be used. If another SET_OUTPUT comes and switches it back to the old ring buffer that's getting unmapped, it's also fine: this ring buffer's aux_mmap_count will be zero and AUX transactions won't start any more.

2016-09-09mm: fix cache mode of dax pmd mappingsDan Williams
track_pfn_insert() in vmf_insert_pfn_pmd() is marking dax mappings as uncacheable rendering them impractical for application usage. DAX-pte mappings are cached and the goal of establishing DAX-pmd mappings is to attain more performance, not dramatically less (3 orders of magnitude). track_pfn_insert() relies on a previous call to reserve_memtype() to establish the expected page_cache_mode for the range. While memremap() arranges for reserve_memtype() to be called, devm_memremap_pages() does not. So, teach track_pfn_insert() and untrack_pfn() how to handle tracking without a vma, and arrange for devm_memremap_pages() to establish the write-back-cache reservation in the memtype tree.

2016-09-05sched/core: Fix a race between try_to_wake_up() and a woken up taskBalbir Singh
The origin of the issue I've seen is related to a missing memory barrier between check for task->state and the check for task->on_rq. The task being woken up is already awake from a schedule() and is doing the following: do { schedule() set_current_state(TASK_(UN)INTERRUPTIBLE); } while (!cond); The waker, actually gets stuck doing the following in try_to_wake_up(): while (p->on_cpu) cpu_relax(); Analysis: The instance I've seen involves the following race: CPU1 CPU2 while () { if (cond) break; do { schedule(); set_current_state(TASK_UN..) } while (!cond); wakeup_routine() spin_lock_irqsave(wait_lock) raw_spin_lock_irqsave(wait_lock) wake_up_process() } try_to_wake_up() set_current_state(TASK_RUNNING); .. list_del(&waiter.list); CPU2 wakes up CPU1, but before it can get the wait_lock and set current state to TASK_RUNNING the following occurs: CPU3 wakeup_routine() raw_spin_lock_irqsave(wait_lock) if (!list_empty) wake_up_process() try_to_wake_up() raw_spin_lock_irqsave(p->pi_lock) .. if (p->on_rq && ttwu_wakeup()) .. while (p->on_cpu) cpu_relax() .. CPU3 tries to wake up the task on CPU1 again since it finds it on the wait_queue, CPU1 is spinning on wait_lock, but immediately after CPU2, CPU3 got it. CPU3 checks the state of p on CPU1, it is TASK_UNINTERRUPTIBLE and the task is spinning on the wait_lock. Interestingly since p->on_rq is checked under pi_lock, I've noticed that try_to_wake_up() finds p->on_rq to be 0. This was the most confusing bit of the analysis, but p->on_rq is changed under runqueue lock, rq_lock, the p->on_rq check is not reliable without this fix IMHO. The race is visible (based on the analysis) only when ttwu_queue() does a remote wakeup via ttwu_queue_remote. In which case the p->on_rq change is not done uder the pi_lock. The result is that after a while the entire system locks up on the raw_spin_irqlock_save(wait_lock) and the holder spins infintely Reproduction of the issue: The issue can be reproduced after a long run on my system with 80 threads and having to tweak available memory to very low and running memory stress-ng mmapfork test. It usually takes a long time to reproduce. I am trying to work on a test case that can reproduce the issue faster, but thats work in progress. I am still testing the changes on my still in a loop and the tests seem OK thus far. Big thanks to Benjamin and Nick for helping debug this as well.

tick_nohz_start_idle() is prevented to be called if the idle tick can't be stopped since commit 1f3b0f8243cb934 ("tick/nohz: Optimize nohz idle enter").

2016-09-01kernel/fork: fix CLONE_CHILD_CLEARTID regression in nscdMichal Hocko
Commit fec1d0115240 ("[PATCH] Disable CLONE_CHILD_CLEARTID for abnormal exit") has caused a subtle regression in nscd which uses CLONE_CHILD_CLEARTID to clear the nscd_certainly_running flag in the shared databases, so that the clients are notified when nscd is restarted. Now, when nscd uses a non-persistent database, clients that have it mapped keep thinking the database is being updated by nscd, when in fact nscd has created a new (anonymous) one (for non-persistent databases it uses an unlinked file as backend). The original proposal for the CLONE_CHILD_CLEARTID change claimed (https://lkml.org/lkml/2006/10/25/233): : The NPTL library uses the CLONE_CHILD_CLEARTID flag on clone() syscalls : on behalf of pthread_create() library calls. This feature is used to : request that the kernel clear the thread-id in user space (at an address : provided in the syscall) when the thread disassociates itself from the : address space, which is done in mm_release(). : : Unfortunately, when a multi-threaded process incurs a core dump (such as : from a SIGSEGV), the core-dumping thread sends SIGKILL signals to all of : the other threads, which then proceed to clear their user-space tids : before synchronizing in exit_mm() with the start of core dumping. This : misrepresents the state of process's address space at the time of the : SIGSEGV and makes it more difficult for someone to debug NPTL and glibc : problems (misleading him/her to conclude that the threads had gone away : before the fault). : : The fix below is to simply avoid the CLONE_CHILD_CLEARTID action if a : core dump has been initiated. The resulting patch from Roland (https://lkml.org/lkml/2006/10/26/269) seems to have a larger scope than the original patch asked for. It seems that limitting the scope of the check to core dumping should work for SIGSEGV issue describe above.

2016-09-01printk/nmi: avoid direct printk()-s from __printk_nmi_flush()Sergey Senozhatsky
__printk_nmi_flush() can be called from nmi_panic(), therefore it has to test whether it's executed in NMI context and thus must route the messages through deferred printk() or via direct printk(). This is to avoid potential deadlocks, as described in commit cf9b1106c81c ("printk/nmi: flush NMI messages on the system panic"). However there remain two places where __printk_nmi_flush() does unconditional direct printk() calls: - pr_err("printk_nmi_flush: internal error ...") - pr_cont("\n") Factor out print_nmi_seq_line() parts into a new printk_nmi_flush_line() function, which takes care of in_nmi(), and use it in __printk_nmi_flush() for printing and error-reporting.

2016-09-01kconfig: tinyconfig: provide whole choice blocks to avoid warningsArnd Bergmann
Using "make tinyconfig" produces a couple of annoying warnings that show up for build test machines all the time: .config:966:warning: override: NOHIGHMEM changes choice state .config:965:warning: override: SLOB changes choice state .config:963:warning: override: KERNEL_XZ changes choice state .config:962:warning: override: CC_OPTIMIZE_FOR_SIZE changes choice state .config:933:warning: override: SLOB changes choice state .config:930:warning: override: CC_OPTIMIZE_FOR_SIZE changes choice state .config:870:warning: override: SLOB changes choice state .config:868:warning: override: KERNEL_XZ changes choice state .config:867:warning: override: CC_OPTIMIZE_FOR_SIZE changes choice state I've made a previous attempt at fixing them and we discussed a number of alternatives. I tried changing the Makefile to use "merge_config.sh -n $(fragment-list)" but couldn't get that to work properly. This is yet another approach, based on the observation that we do want to see a warning for conflicting 'choice' options, and that we can simply make them non-conflicting by listing all other options as disabled. This is a trivial patch that we can apply independent of plans for other changes.

2016-08-30seccomp: Fix tracer exit notifications during fatal signalsKees Cook
This fixes a ptrace vs fatal pending signals bug as manifested in seccomp now that seccomp was reordered to happen after ptrace. The short version is that seccomp should not attempt to call do_exit() while fatal signals are pending under a tracer. The existing code was trying to be as defensively paranoid as possible, but it now ends up confusing ptrace. Instead, the syscall can just be skipped (which solves the original concern that the do_exit() was addressing) and normal signal handling, tracer notification, and process death can happen. Paraphrasing from the original bug report: If a tracee task is in a PTRACE_EVENT_SECCOMP trap, or has been resumed after such a trap but not yet been scheduled, and another task in the thread-group calls exit_group(), then the tracee task exits without the ptracer receiving a PTRACE_EVENT_EXIT notification. Test case here: https://gist.github.com/khuey/3c43ac247c72cef8c956ca73281c9be7 The bug happens because when __seccomp_filter() detects fatal_signal_pending(), it calls do_exit() without dequeuing the fatal signal. When do_exit() sends the PTRACE_EVENT_EXIT notification and that task is descheduled, __schedule() notices that there is a fatal signal pending and changes its state from TASK_TRACED to TASK_RUNNING. That prevents the ptracer's waitpid() from returning the ptrace event. A more detailed analysis is here: https://github.com/mozilla/rr/issues/1762#issuecomment-237396255.

2016-08-26sysctl: handle error writing UINT_MAX to u32 fieldsSubash Abhinov Kasiviswanathan
We have scripts which write to certain fields on 3.18 kernels but this seems to be failing on 4.4 kernels. An entry which we write to here is xfrm_aevent_rseqth which is u32. echo 4294967295 > /proc/sys/net/core/xfrm_aevent_rseqth Commit 230633d109e3 ("kernel/sysctl.c: detect overflows when converting to int") prevented writing to sysctl entries when integer overflow occurs. However, this does not apply to unsigned integers. Heinrich suggested that we introduce a new option to handle 64 bit limits and set min as 0 and max as UINT_MAX. This might not work as it leads to issues similar to __do_proc_doulongvec_minmax. Alternatively, we would need to change the datatype of the entry to 64 bit. static int __do_proc_doulongvec_minmax(void *data, struct ctl_table { i = (unsigned long *) data; //This cast is causing to read beyond the size of data (u32) vleft = table->maxlen / sizeof(unsigned long); //vleft is 0 because maxlen is sizeof(u32) which is lesser than sizeof(unsigned long) on x86_64. Introduce a new proc handler proc_douintvec. Individual proc entries will need to be updated to use the new handler.

2016-08-24perf/core: Use this_cpu_ptr() when stopping AUX eventsWill Deacon
When tearing down an AUX buf for an event via perf_mmap_close(), __perf_event_output_stop() is called on the event's CPU to ensure that trace generation is halted before the process of unmapping and freeing the buffer pages begins. The callback is performed via cpu_function_call(), which ensures that it runs with interrupts disabled and is therefore not preemptible. Unfortunately, the current code grabs the per-cpu context pointer using get_cpu_ptr(), which unnecessarily disables preemption and doesn't pair the call with put_cpu_ptr(), leading to a preempt_count() imbalance and a BUG when freeing the AUX buffer later on: WARNING: CPU: 1 PID: 2249 at kernel/events/ring_buffer.c:539 __rb_free_aux+0x10c/0x120 Modules linked in: [...] Call Trace: [<ffffffff813379dd>] dump_stack+0x4f/0x72 [<ffffffff81059ff6>] __warn+0xc6/0xe0 [<ffffffff8105a0c8>] warn_slowpath_null+0x18/0x20 [<ffffffff8112761c>] __rb_free_aux+0x10c/0x120 [<ffffffff81128163>] rb_free_aux+0x13/0x20 [<ffffffff8112515e>] perf_mmap_close+0x29e/0x2f0 [<ffffffff8111da30>] ? perf_iterate_ctx+0xe0/0xe0 [<ffffffff8115f685>] remove_vma+0x25/0x60 [<ffffffff81161796>] exit_mmap+0x106/0x140 [<ffffffff8105725c>] mmput+0x1c/0xd0 [<ffffffff8105cac3>] do_exit+0x253/0xbf0 [<ffffffff8105e32e>] do_group_exit+0x3e/0xb0 [<ffffffff81068d49>] get_signal+0x249/0x640 [<ffffffff8101c273>] do_signal+0x23/0x640 [<ffffffff81905f42>] ? _raw_write_unlock_irq+0x12/0x30 [<ffffffff81905f69>] ? _raw_spin_unlock_irq+0x9/0x10 [<ffffffff81901896>] ? __schedule+0x2c6/0x710 [<ffffffff810022a4>] exit_to_usermode_loop+0x74/0x90 [<ffffffff81002a56>] prepare_exit_to_usermode+0x26/0x30 [<ffffffff81906d1b>] retint_user+0x8/0x10 This patch uses this_cpu_ptr() instead of get_cpu_ptr(), since preemption is already disabled by the caller.

2016-08-24timekeeping: Cap array access in timekeeping_debugJohn Stultz
It was reported that hibernation could fail on the 2nd attempt, where the system hangs at hibernate() -> syscore_resume() -> i8237A_resume() -> claim_dma_lock(), because the lock has already been taken. However there is actually no other process would like to grab this lock on that problematic platform. Further investigation showed that the problem is triggered by setting /sys/power/pm_trace to 1 before the 1st hibernation. Since once pm_trace is enabled, the rtc becomes unmeaningful after suspend, and meanwhile some BIOSes would like to adjust the 'invalid' RTC (e.g, smaller than 1970) to the release date of that motherboard during POST stage, thus after resumed, it may seem that the system had a significant long sleep time which is a completely meaningless value. Then in timekeeping_resume -> tk_debug_account_sleep_time, if the bit31 of the sleep time happened to be set to 1, fls() returns 32 and we add 1 to sleep_time_bin[32], which causes an out of bounds array access and therefor memory being overwritten. As depicted by System.map: 0xffffffff81c9d080 b sleep_time_bin 0xffffffff81c9d100 B dma_spin_lock the dma_spin_lock.val is set to 1, which caused this problem. This patch adds a sanity check in tk_debug_account_sleep_time() to ensure we don't index past the sleep_time_bin array.

2016-08-24timekeeping: Avoid taking lock in NMI path with CONFIG_DEBUG_TIMEKEEPINGJohn Stultz
When I added some extra sanity checking in timekeeping_get_ns() under CONFIG_DEBUG_TIMEKEEPING, I missed that the NMI safe __ktime_get_fast_ns() method was using timekeeping_get_ns(). Thus the locking added to the debug checks broke the NMI-safety of __ktime_get_fast_ns(). This patch open-codes the timekeeping_get_ns() logic for __ktime_get_fast_ns(), so can avoid any deadlocks in NMI.
