2011-09-14um: Save FPU registers between task switchesIngo van Lil2-2/+19
Some time ago Jeff prepared 42daba316557 ("uml: stop saving process FP state") for UML to stop saving the process FP state between task switches. The assumption was that since with SKAS0 every guest process runs inside a host process context the host OS will take care of keeping the proper FP state. Unfortunately this is not true for multi-threaded applications, where all guest threads share a single host process context yet all may use the FPU on their own. Although I haven't verified it I suspect things to be even worse in SKAS3 mode where all guest processes run inside a single host process. The patch reintroduces the saving and restoring of the FP context between task switches. [richard@nod.at: Ingo posted this patch in 2009, sadly it was never applied and got lost. Now in 2011 the problem was reported by Gunnar.] Signed-off-by: Ingo van Lil <inguin@gmx.de> Signed-off-by: Richard Weinberger <richard@nod.at> Reported-by: <gunnarlindroth@hotmail.com> Tested-by: <gunnarlindroth@hotmail.com> Cc: Stanislav Meduna <stano@meduna.org> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>

2008-02-23uml: fix FP register corruptionJeff Dike1-0/+15
Commit ee3d9bd4de1ed93d2a7ee41c331ed30a1c7b8acd ("uml: simplify SIGSEGV handling"), while greatly simplifying the kernel SIGSEGV handler that runs in the process address space, introduced a bug which corrupts FP state in the process. Previously, the SIGSEGV handler called the sigreturn system call by hand - it couldn't return through the restorer provided to it because that could try to call the libc restorer which likely wouldn't exist in the process address space. So, it blocked off some signals, including SIGUSR1, on entry to the SIGSEGV handler, queued a SIGUSR1 to itself, and invoked sigreturn. The SIGUSR1 was delivered, and was visible to the UML kernel after sigreturn finished. The commit eliminated the signal masking and the call to sigreturn. The handler simply hits itself with a SIGTRAP to let the UML kernel know that it is finished. UML then restores the process registers, which effectively longjmps the process out of the signal handler, skipping sigreturn's restoring of register state and the signal mask. The bug is that the host apparently sets used_fp to 0 when it saves the process FP state in the sigcontext on the process signal stack. Thus, when the process is longjmped out of the handler, its FP state is corrupt because it wasn't saved on the context switch to the UML kernel. This manifested itself as sleep hanging. For some reason, sleep uses floating point in order to calculate the sleep interval. When a page fault corrupts its FP state, it is faked into essentially sleeping forever. This patch saves the FP state before entering the SIGSEGV handler and restores it afterwards.

Kill a process that tries to branch into a stub and execute a system call. There are no security implications here - a system call in a stub is treated the same as a system call anywhere else.

2008-02-05uml: kill processes instead of panicing kernelJeff Dike1-90/+175
UML was panicing in the case of failures of libc calls which shouldn't happen. This is an overreaction since a failure from libc doesn't normally mean that kernel data structures are in an unknown state. Instead, the current process should just be killed if there is no way to recover. The case that prompted this was a failure of PTRACE_SETREGS restoring the same state that was read by PTRACE_GETREGS. It appears that when a process tries to load a bogus value into a segment register, it segfaults (as expected) and the value is actually loaded and is seen by PTRACE_GETREGS (not expected). This case is fixed by forcing a fatal SIGSEGV on the process so that it immediately dies. fatal_sigsegv was added for this purpose. It was declared as noreturn, so in order to pursuade gcc that it actually does not return, I added a call to os_dump_core (and declared it noreturn) so that I get a core file if somehow the process survives. All other calls in arch/um/os-Linux/skas/process.c got the same treatment, with failures causing the process to die instead of a kernel panic, with some exceptions. userspace_tramp exits with status 1 if anything goes wrong there. That will cause start_userspace to return an error. copy_context_skas0 and map_stub_pages also now return errors instead of panicing. Callers of thes functions were changed to check for errors and do something appropriate. Usually that's to return an error to their callers. check_skas3_ptrace_faultinfo just exits since that's too early to do anything else. save_registers, restore_registers, and init_registers now return status instead of panicing on failure, with their callers doing something appropriate. There were also duplicate declarations of save_registers and restore_registers in os.h - these are gone. I noticed and fixed up some whitespace damage.

2008-02-05uml: simplify SIGSEGV handlingJeff Dike1-7/+4
Simplify the page fault stub by not masking signals while it is running. This allows it to signal that it is done by executing an instruction which will generate a SIGTRAP (int3 on x86) rather than running sigreturn by hand after queueing a blocked SIGUSR1. userspace_tramp now no longer puts anything in the SIGSEGV sa_mask, but it does add SA_NODEFER to sa_flags so that SIGSEGV is still enabled after the signal handler fails to run sigreturn. SIGWINCH is just blocked so that we don't have to deal with it and the signal masks used by wait_stub_done are updated to reflect the smaller number of signals that it has to worry about.

A number of other files never needed it, so these includes are deleted. The structure which was used to pass signal handlers from the kernel side to the userspace side is gone. Instead, the handlers are declared here, and used directly from libc code. This allows arch/um/os-Linux/trap.c to be deleted, with its remnants being moved to arch/um/os-Linux/skas/trap.c. arch/um/os-Linux/tty.c had its inclusions changed, and it needed some style attention, so it got tidied.

2007-12-17uml: stop gdb from deleting breakpoints when running UMLStanislaw Gruszka1-5/+7
Sometimes when UML is debugged gdb miss breakpoints. When process traced by gdb do fork, debugger remove breakpoints from child address space. There is possibility to trace more than one fork, but this not work with UML, I guess (only guess) there is a deadlock - gdb waits for UML and UML waits for gdb. When clone() is called with SIGCHLD and CLONE_VM flags, gdb see this as PTRACE_EVENT_FORK not as PTRACE_EVENT_CLONE and remove breakpoints from child and at the same time from traced process, because either have the same address space. Maybe it is possible to do fix in gdb, but I'm not sure if there is easy way to find out if traced and child processes share memory. So I do fix for UML, it simply do not call clone() with both SIGCHLD and CLONE_VM flags together. Additionally __WALL flag is used for waitpid() to assure not miss clone and normal process events.

2007-10-16uml: fix stub address calculationsJeff Dike2-14/+15
The calculation of CONFIG_STUB_CODE and CONFIG_STUB_DATA didn't take into account anything but 3G/1G and 2G/2G, leaving the other vmsplits out in the cold. I'd rather not duplicate the four known host vmsplit cases for each of these symbols. I'd also like to calculate them based on the highest userspace address. The Kconfig language seems not to allow calculation of hex constants, so I moved this to as-layout.h. CONFIG_STUB_CODE, CONFIG_STUB_DATA, and CONFIG_STUB_START are now gone. In their place are STUB_CODE, STUB_DATA, and STUB_START in as-layout.h. i386 and x86_64 seem to differ as to whether an unadorned constant is an int or a long, so I cast them to unsigned long so they can be printed consistently. However, they are also used in stub.S, where C types don't work so well. So, there are ASM_ versions of these constants for use in stub.S. I also ifdef-ed the non-asm-friendly portion of as-layout.h. With this in place, most of the rest of this patch is changing CONFIG_STUB_* to STUB_*, except in stub.S, where they are changed to ASM_STUB_*. defconfig has the old symbols deleted. I also print these addresses out in case there is any problem mapping them on the host. The two stub.S files had some trailing whitespace, so that is cleaned up here.

2007-10-16uml: stop saving process FP stateJeff Dike2-8/+2
Throw out a lot of code dealing with saving and restoring floating-point state. In skas mode, where processes run in a restoring floating-point state on kernel entry and exit is pointless. This eliminates most of arch/um/os-Linux/sys-{i386,x86_64}/registers.c. Most of what remained is now arch-indpendent, and can be moved up to arch/um/os-Linux/registers.c. Both arches need the jmp_buf accessor get_thread_reg, and i386 needs {save,restore}_fp_regs because it cheats during sigreturn by getting the fp state using ptrace rather than copying it out of the process sigcontext. After this, it turns out that arch/um/include/skas/mode-skas.h is almost completely unneeded. The declarations in it are variables which either don't exist or which don't have global scope. The one exception is kill_off_processes_skas. If that's removed, this header can be deleted. This uncovered a bug in user.h, which wasn't correctly making sure that a size_t definition was available to both userspace and kernelspace files.

Cleanup of the SIGWINCH support. Some code and comment reformatting. The stack used for SIGWINCH threads was leaked.

If something goes wrong with a WIGWINCH thread, and this is discovered in the interrupt handler, the winch record would leak. It is now freed, except that the IRQ isn't freed. This is hard to do from interrupt context. This has the side-effect that the IRQ system maintains a reference to the freed structure, but that shouldn't cause a problem since the descriptor is disabled. register_winch_irq is now much better about cleaning up after an initialization failure.

2007-05-07uml: more page fault path trimmingJeff Dike3-87/+103
More trimming of the page fault path. Permissions are passed around in a single int rather than one bit per int. The permission values are copied from libc so that they can be passed to mmap and mprotect without any further conversion. The register sets used by do_syscall_stub and copy_context_skas0 are initialized once, at boot time, rather than once per call. wait_stub_done checks whether it is getting the signals it expects by comparing the wait status to a mask containing bits for the signals of interest rather than comparing individually to the signal numbers. It also has one check for a wait failure instead of two. The caller is expected to do the initial continue of the stub. This gets rid of an argument and some logic. The fname argument is gone, as that can be had from a stack trace. user_signal() is collapsed into userspace() as it is basically one or two lines of code afterwards. The physical memory remapping stuff is gone, as it is unused. flush_tlb_page is inlined.

2007-05-07uml: don't try to handle signals on initial process stackJeff Dike1-3/+11
Code running on the initial UML stack can't receive or process signals since current must be valid when IRQs are handled, and there is no current for this stack. So, instead of using UML_LONGJMP and UML_SETJMP, which are careful to save and restore signal state, and, as a side-effect, handle any deferred signals, start_idle_thread must use the bare equivalents, which don't do anything with signals.

2007-05-07uml: convert libc layer to call read and writeJeff Dike2-10/+18
This patch converts calls in the os layer to os_{read,write}_file to calls directly to libc read() and write() where it is clear that the I/O buffer is in the kernel. We can do that here instead of calling os_{read,write}_file_k since we are in libc code and can call libc directly. With the change in the calls, error handling needs to be changed to refer to errno directly rather than the return value of the call. CATCH_EINTR wrappers were also added where needed.

2007-05-07uml: tidy libc codeJeff Dike1-1/+1
This patch lays some groundwork for the next one, which converts calls to os_{read,write}_file into {read,write}, by doing some tidying in the affected areas. do_not_aio gets restructured to make the final result a bit cleaner. There are also whitespace and other formatting fixes, fixes in error messages, and a typo fix.

2007-05-07uml: kernel segfaults should dump proper registersJeff Dike1-2/+13
If there's a segfault inside the kernel, we want a dump of the registers at the point of the segfault, not the registers at the point of calling panic or the last userspace registers. sig_handler_common_skas now uses a static register set in the case of a SIGSEGV to avoid messing up the process registers if the segfault turns out to be non-fatal. The architecture sigcontext-to-pt_regs copying code was repurposed to copy data out of the SEGV stack frame.

2007-05-07uml: tidy fault codeJeff Dike1-9/+8
Tidying in preparation for the segfault register dumping patch which follows. void * pointers are changed to union uml_pt_regs *. This makes the types match reality, except in arch_fixup, which is changed to operate on a union uml_pt_regs. This fixes a bug in the call from segv_handler, which passes a union uml_pt_regs, to segv, which expects to pass a struct sigcontext to arch_fixup. Whitespace and other style fixes. There's also a errno printk fix.

userspace code used to have to call the kernelspace function page_size() in order to determine the value of the kernel's PAGE_SIZE.

This patch moves all the the symbols defined in um_arch.c, which are mostly boundaries between different parts of the UML kernel address space, to a new header, as-layout.h.

2007-03-27[PATCH] uml: use correct register file size everywhereJeff Dike2-6/+10
This patch uses MAX_REG_NR consistently to refer to the register file size. FRAME_SIZE isn't sufficient because on x86_64, it is smaller than the ptrace register file size. MAX_REG_NR was introduced as a consistent way to get the number of registers, but wasn't used everywhere it should be. When this causes a problem, it makes PTRACE_SETREGS fail on x86_64 because of a corrupted segment register value in the known-good register file. The patch also adds a register dump at that point in case there are any future problems here.

2006-11-03[PATCH] uml: include tidyingJeff Dike1-1/+1
In order to get the __NR_* constants, we need sys/syscall.h. linux/unistd.h works as well since it includes syscall.h, however syscall.h is more parsimonious. We were inconsistent in this, and this patch adds syscall.h includes where necessary and removes linux/unistd.h includes where they are not needed. asm/unistd.h also includes the __NR_* constants, but these are not the glibc-sanctioned ones, so this also removes one such inclusion.

2006-09-27[PATCH] uml: thread creation tidyingJeff Dike1-52/+16
fork on UML has always somewhat subtle. The underlying cause has been the need to initialize a stack for the new process. The only portable way to initialize a new stack is to set it as the alternate signal stack and take a signal. The signal handler does whatever initialization is needed and jumps back to the original stack, where the fork processing is finished. The basic context switching mechanism is a jmp_buf for each process. You switch to a new process by longjmping to its jmp_buf. Now that UML has its own implementation of setjmp and longjmp, and I can poke around inside a jmp_buf without fear that libc will change the structure, a much simpler mechanism is possible. The jmpbuf can simply be initialized by hand. This eliminates - the need to set up and remove the alternate signal stack sending and handling a signal the signal blocking needed around the stack switching, since there is no stack switching setting up the jmp_buf needed to jump back to the original stack after the new one is set up In addition, since jmp_buf is now defined by UML, and not by libc, it can be embedded in the thread struct. This makes it unnecessary to have it exist on the stack, where it used to be. It also simplifies interfaces, since the switch jmp_buf used to be a void * inside the thread struct, and functions which took it as an argument needed to define a jmp_buf variable and assign it from the void *.

2006-09-26[PATCH] uml: timer cleanupsJeff Dike1-1/+5
set_interval returns an error instead of panicing if setitimer fails. Some of its callers now check the return. enable_timer is largely tt-mode-specific, so it is marked as such, and the only skas-mode caller is made to call set-interval instead. user_time_init was a no-value-added wrapper around set_interval, so it is gone. Since set_interval is now called from kernel code, callers no longer pass ITIMER_* to it. Instead, they pass a flag which is converted into ITIMER_REAL or ITIMER_VIRTUAL.
