2011-10-11x86: Default to vsyscall=native for nowAdrian Bunk1-1/+1
This UML breakage: linux-[3800] vsyscall fault (exploit attempt?) ip:ffffffffff600000 cs:33 sp:7fbfb9c498 ax:ffffffffff600000 si:0 di:606790 linux-[3856] vsyscall fault (exploit attempt?) ip:ffffffffff600000 cs:33 sp:7fbfb13168 ax:ffffffffff600000 si:0 di:606790 Is caused by commit 3ae36655 ("x86-64: Rework vsyscall emulation and add vsyscall= parameter") - the vsyscall emulation code is not fully cooked yet as UML relies on some rather fragile SIGSEGV semantics. Linus suggested in https://lkml.org/lkml/2011/8/9/376 to default to vsyscall=native for now, this patch implements that.

2011-09-21x86/rtc: Don't recursively acquire rtc_lockMatt Fleming1-11/+12
A deadlock was introduced on x86 in commit ef68c8f87ed1 ("x86: Serialize EFI time accesses on rtc_lock") because efi_get_time() and friends can be called with rtc_lock already held by read_persistent_time(), e.g.: timekeeping_init() read_persistent_clock() <-- acquire rtc_lock efi_get_time() phys_efi_get_time() <-- acquire rtc_lock <DEADLOCK> To fix this let's push the locking down into the get_wallclock() and set_wallclock() implementations. Only the clock implementations that access the x86 RTC directly need to acquire rtc_lock, so it makes sense to push the locking down into the rtc, vrtc and efi code. The virtualization implementations don't require rtc_lock to be held because they provide their own serialization.

2011-08-10x86-64: Rework vsyscall emulation and add vsyscall= parameterAndy Lutomirski5-83/+72
There are three choices: vsyscall=native: Vsyscalls are native code that issues the corresponding syscalls. vsyscall=emulate (default): Vsyscalls are emulated by instruction fault traps, tested in the bad_area path. The actual contents of the vsyscall page is the same as the vsyscall=native case except that it's marked NX. This way programs that make assumptions about what the code in the page does will not be confused when they read that code. vsyscall=none: Trying to execute a vsyscall will segfault.

2011-08-04x86-64: Add user_64bit_mode paravirt opAndy Lutomirski3-6/+6
Three places in the kernel assume that the only long mode CPL 3 selector is __USER_CS. This is not true on Xen -- Xen's sysretq changes cs to the magic value 0xe033. Two of the places are corner cases, but as of "x86-64: Improve vsyscall emulation CS and RIP handling" (c9712944b2a12373cb6ff8059afcfb7e826a6c54), vsyscalls will segfault if called with Xen's extra CS selector. This causes a panic when older init builds die. It seems impossible to make Xen use __USER_CS reliably without taking a performance hit on every system call, so this fixes the tests instead with a new paravirt op. It's a little ugly because ptrace.h can't include paravirt.h.

2011-08-04x86-64: Work around gold bug 13023Andy Lutomirski1-6/+10
Gold has trouble assigning numbers to the location counter inside of an output section description. The bug was triggered by 9fd67b4ed0714ab718f1f9bd14c344af336a6df7, which consolidated all of the vsyscall sections into a single section. The workaround is IMO still nicer than the old way of doing it.

2011-07-22lguest: use a special 1:1 linear pagetable mode until first switch.Rusty Russell1-1/+0
The Host used to create some page tables for the Guest to use at the top of Guest memory; it would then tell the Guest where this was. In particular, it created linear mappings for 0 and 0xC0000000 addresses because lguest used to switch to its real page tables quite late in boot. However, since d50d8fe19 Linux initialized boot page tables in head_32.S even before the "are we lguest?" boot jump. So, now we can simplify things: the Host pagetable code assumes 1:1 linear mapping until it first calls the LHCALL_NEW_PGTABLE hypercall, which we now do before we reach C code. This also means that the Host doesn't need to know anything about the Guest's PAGE_OFFSET. (Non-Linux guests might not even have such a thing). Signed-off-by: Rusty Russell <rusty@rustcorp.com.au>

Rebooting on the Dell E5420 often hangs with the keyboard or ACPI methods, but is reliable via the PCI method. [ hpa: this was deferred because we believed for a long time that the recent reshuffling of the boot priorities in commit 660e34cebf0a11d54f2d5dd8838607452355f321 fixed this platform.

All these are instances of #define NAME value; or #define NAME(params_opt) value; These of course fail to build when used in contexts like if(foo $OP NAME) while(bar $OP NAME) and may silently generate the wrong code in contexts such as foo = NAME + 1; /* foo = value; + 1; */ bar = NAME - 1; /* bar = value; - 1; */ baz = NAME & quux; /* baz = value; & quux; */ Reported on comp.lang.c, Message-ID: <ab0d55fe-25e5-482b-811e-c475aa6065c3@c29g2000yqd.googlegroups.com> Initial analysis of the dangers provided by Keith Thompson in that thread. There are many more instances of more complicated macros having unnecessary trailing semicolons, but this pile seems to be all of the cases of simple values suffering from the problem. (Thus things that are likely to be found in one of the contexts above, more complicated ones aren't.)

2011-07-21kexec, x86: Fix incorrect jump back address if not preserving contextHuang Ying2-0/+4
In kexec jump support, jump back address passed to the kexeced kernel via function calling ABI, that is, the function call return address is the jump back entry. Furthermore, jump back entry == 0 should be used to signal that the jump back or preserve context is not enabled in the original kernel. But in the current implementation the stack position used for function call return address is not cleared context preservation is disabled. The patch fixes this bug.
