2010-09-30Fix up more fallout form alpha signal cleanupsLinus Torvalds1-1/+1
Commit c52c2ddc1dfa ("alpha: switch osf_sigprocmask() to use of sigprocmask()") had several problems. The more obvious compile issues got fixed in commit 0f44fbd297e1 ("alpha: fix compile problem in arch/alpha/kernel/signal.c"), but it also caused a regression. Since _BLOCKABLE is already the set of signals that can be blocked, the code should do "newmask & _BLOCKABLE" rather than inverting _BLOCKABLE before masking.

2010-09-25alpha: fix hae_cache race in RESTORE_ALLAl Viro1-4/+7
We want interrupts disabled on all paths leading to RESTORE_ALL; otherwise, we are risking an IRQ coming between the updates of alpha_mv->hae_cache and *alpha_mv->hae_register and set_hae() within the IRQ getting badly confused. RESTORE_ALL used to play with disabling IRQ itself, but that got removed back in 2002, without making sure we had them disabled on all paths. It's cheaper to make sure we have them disabled than to revert to original variant... Remove the detritus left from that commit back in 2002; we used to need a reload of $0 and $1 since swpipl would change those, but doing that had become pointless when we stopped doing swpipl in there...

2010-09-18alpha: deal with multiple simultaneously pending signalsAl Viro1-5/+11
Unlike the other targets, alpha sets _one_ sigframe and buggers off until the next syscall/interrupt, even if more signals are pending. It leads to quite a few unpleasant inconsistencies, starting with SIGSEGV potentially arriving not where it should and including e.g. mess with sigsuspend(); consider two pending signals blocked until sigsuspend() unblocks them. We pick the first one; then, if we are hit by interrupt while in the handler, we process the second one as well. If we are not, and if no syscalls had been made, we get out of the first handler and leave the second signal pending; normally sigreturn() would've picked it anyway, but here it starts with restoring the original mask and voila - the second signal is blocked again. On everything else we get both delivered consistently. It's actually easy to fix; the only thing to watch out for is prevention of double syscall restart. Fortunately, the idea I've nicked from arm fix by rmk works just fine... Testcase demonstrating the behaviour in question; on alpha we get one or both flags set (usually one), on everything else both are always set. #include <signal.h> #include <stdio.h> int had1, had2; void f1(int sig) { had1 = 1; } void f2(int sig) { had2 = 1; } main() { sigset_t set1, set2; sigemptyset(&set1); sigemptyset(&set2); sigaddset(&set2, 1); sigaddset(&set2, 2); signal(1, f1); signal(2, f2); sigprocmask(SIG_SETMASK, &set2, NULL); raise(1); raise(2); sigsuspend(&set1); printf("had1:%d had2:%d\n", had1, had2); } Tested-by: Michael Cree <mcree@orcon.net.nz> Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk> Signed-off-by: Matt Turner <mattst88@gmail.com>
2010-09-18alpha: fix a 14 years old bug in sigreturn tracingAl Viro1-2/+11
The way sigreturn() is implemented on alpha breaks PTRACE_SYSCALL, all way back to 1.3.95 when alpha has grown PTRACE_SYSCALL support. What happens is direct return to ret_from_syscall, in order to bypass mangling of a3 (error indicator) and prevent other mutilations of registers (e.g. by syscall restart). That's fine, but... the entire TIF_SYSCALL_TRACE codepath is kept separate on alpha and post-syscall stopping/notifying the tracer is after the syscall. And the normal path we are forcibly switching to doesn't have it. So we end up with *one* stop in traced sigreturn() vs. two in other syscalls. And yes, strace is visibly broken by that; try to strace the following #include <signal.h> #include <stdio.h> void f(int sig) {} main() { signal(SIGHUP, f); raise(SIGHUP); write(1, "eeeek\n", 6); } and watch the show. The close(1) = 405 in the end of strace output is coming from return value of write() (6 == __NR_close on alpha) and syscall number of exit_group() (__NR_exit_group == 405 there). The fix is fairly simple - the only thing we end up missing is the call of syscall_trace() and we can tell whether we'd been called from the SYSCALL_TRACE path by checking ra value. Since we are setting the switch_stack up (that's what sys_sigreturn() does), we have the right environment for calling syscall_trace() - just before we call undo_switch_stack() and return. Since undo_switch_stack() will overwrite s0 anyway, we can use it to store the result of "has it been called from SYSCALL_TRACE path?" check. The same thing applies in rt_sigreturn().

2010-09-18alpha: unb0rk sigsuspend() and rt_sigsuspend()Al Viro3-69/+2
Old code used to set regs->r0 and regs->r19 to force the right return value. Leaving that after switch to ERESTARTNOHAND was a Bad Idea(tm), since now that screws the restart - if we hit the case when get_signal_to_deliver() returns 0, we will step back to syscall insn, with v0 set to EINTR and a3 to 1. The latter won't matter, since EINTR is 4, aka __NR_write. Testcase: #include <signal.h> #define _GNU_SOURCE #include <unistd.h> #include <sys/syscall.h> main() { sigset_t mask; sigemptyset(&mask); sigaddset(&mask, SIGCONT); sigprocmask(SIG_SETMASK, &mask, NULL); kill(0, SIGCONT); syscall(__NR_sigsuspend, 1, "b0rken\n", 7); } results on alpha in immediate message to stdout... Fix is obvious; moreover, since we don't need regs anymore, we can switch to normal prototypes for these guys and lose the wrappers. Even better, rt_sigsuspend() is identical to generic version in kernel/signal.c now.

Make do_execve() take a const filename pointer so that kernel_execve() compiles correctly on ARM: arch/arm/kernel/sys_arm.c:88: warning: passing argument 1 of 'do_execve' discards qualifiers from pointer target type This also requires the argv and envp arguments to be consted twice, once for the pointer array and once for the strings the array points to. This is because do_execve() passes a pointer to the filename (now const) to copy_strings_kernel(). A simpler alternative would be to cast the filename pointer in do_execve() when it's passed to copy_strings_kernel(). do_execve() may not change any of the strings it is passed as part of the argv or envp lists as they are some of them in .rodata, so marking these strings as const should be fine. Further kernel_execve() and sys_execve() need to be changed to match. This has been test built on x86_64, frv, arm and mips.

2010-08-11dma-mapping: remove dma_is_consistent APIFUJITA Tomonori1-1/+0
Architectures implement dma_is_consistent() in different ways (some misinterpret the definition of API in DMA-API.txt). So it hasn't been so useful for drivers. We have only one user of the API in tree. Unlikely out-of-tree drivers use the API. Even if we fix dma_is_consistent() in some architectures, it doesn't look useful at all. It was invented long ago for some old systems that can't allocate coherent memory at all. It's better to export only APIs that are definitely necessary for drivers. Let's remove this API.

2010-08-10tty: Add EXTPROC support for LINEMODEhyc@symas.com2-0/+3
This patch is against the 2.6.34 source. Paraphrased from the 1989 BSD patch by David Borman @ cray.com: These are the changes needed for the kernel to support LINEMODE in the server. There is a new bit in the termios local flag word, EXTPROC. When this bit is set, several aspects of the terminal driver are disabled. Input line editing, character echo, and mapping of signals are all disabled. This allows the telnetd to turn off these functions when in linemode, but still keep track of what state the user wants the terminal to be in. New ioctl: TIOCSIG Generate a signal to processes in the current process group of the pty. There is a new mode for packet driver, the TIOCPKT_IOCTL bit. When packet mode is turned on in the pty, and the EXTPROC bit is set, then whenever the state of the pty is changed, the next read on the master side of the pty will have the TIOCPKT_IOCTL bit set. This allows the process on the server side of the pty to know when the state of the terminal has changed; it can then issue the appropriate ioctl to retrieve the new state. Since the original BSD patches accompanied the source code for telnet I've left that reference here, but obviously the feature is useful for any remote terminal protocol, including ssh. The corresponding feature has existed in the BSD tty driver since 1989.

2010-06-15alpha: Detect Super IO chip, no IDE on Avanti, enable EPP19Morten H. Larsen5-49/+155
This patch probes for the Super IO chip and reserves the IO range when found. It avoids enabling the IDE interface on the Avanti family, since none has IDE. It enables the Enhanced Parallel Port v1.9 feature. Signed-off-by: Morten H. Larsen <m-larsen@post6.tele.dk> Signed-off-by: Matt Turner <mattst88@gmail.com>

2010-06-09arch: Implement local64_tPeter Zijlstra1-0/+1
On 64bit, local_t is of size long, and thus we make local64_t an alias. On 32bit, we fall back to atomic64_t. (architecture can provide optimized 32-bit version) (This new facility is to be used by perf events optimizations.)

2010-05-27asm-generic: remove ARCH_HAS_SG_CHAIN in scatterlist.hFUJITA Tomonori1-3/+1
There are more architectures that don't support ARCH_HAS_SG_CHAIN than those that support it. This removes removes ARCH_HAS_SG_CHAIN in asm-generic/scatterlist.h and lets arhictectures to define it. It's clearer than defining ARCH_HAS_SG_CHAIN asm-generic/scatterlist.h and undefing it in arhictectures that don't support it.

2010-05-26Revert "endian: #define __BYTE_ORDER"Linus Torvalds1-0/+5
This reverts commit b3b77c8caef1750ebeea1054e39e358550ea9f55, which was also totally broken (see commit 0d2daf5cc858 that reverted the crc32 version of it). As reported by Stephen Rothwell, it causes problems on big-endian machines: > In file included from fs/jfs/jfs_types.h:33, > from fs/jfs/jfs_incore.h:26, > from fs/jfs/file.c:22: > fs/jfs/endian24.h:36:101: warning: "__LITTLE_ENDIAN" is not defined The kernel has never had that crazy "__BYTE_ORDER == __LITTLE_ENDIAN" model. It's not how we do things, and it isn't how we _should_ do things. So don't go there.

2010-05-26alpha: simplify and optimize sched_find_first_bitMatt Turner1-11/+9
Search only the first 100 bits instead of 140, saving a couple instructions. The resulting code is about 1/3 faster (40K ticks/1000 iterations down to 30K ticks/1000 iterations).

2010-05-26Convert alpha to use clocksources instead of arch_gettimeoffsetJohn Stultz2-42/+31
Alpha has a tsc like rpcc counter that it uses to manage time. This can be converted to an actual clocksource instead of utilizing the arch_gettimeoffset method that is really only there for legacy systems with no continuous counter. Further cleanups could be made if alpha converted to the clockevent model.
