Pull networking fixes from David Miller: 1) Receive packet length needs to be adjust by 2 on RX to accomodate the two padding bytes in altera_tse driver. From Vlastimil Setka. 2) If rx frame is dropped due to out of memory in macb driver, we leave the receive ring descriptors in an undefined state. From Punnaiah Choudary Kalluri 3) Some netlink subsystems erroneously signal NLM_F_MULTI. That is only for dumps. Fix from Nicolas Dichtel. 4) Fix mis-use of raw rt->rt_pmtu value in ipv4, one must always go via the ipv4_mtu() helper. From Herbert Xu. 5) Fix null deref in bridge netfilter, and miscalculated lengths in jump/goto nf_tables verdicts. From Florian Westphal. 6) Unhash ping sockets properly. 7) Software implementation of BPF divide did 64/32 rather than 64/64 bit divide. The JITs got it right.

2015-04-29cpuidle: Run tick_broadcast_exit() with disabled interruptsRafael J. Wysocki1-14/+2
Commit 335f49196fd6 (sched/idle: Use explicit broadcast oneshot control function) replaced clockevents_notify() invocations in cpuidle_idle_call() with direct calls to tick_broadcast_enter() and tick_broadcast_exit(), but it overlooked the fact that interrupts were already enabled before calling the latter which led to functional breakage on systems using idle states with the CPUIDLE_FLAG_TIMER_STOP flag set. Fix that by moving the invocations of tick_broadcast_enter() and tick_broadcast_exit() down into cpuidle_enter_state() where interrupts are still disabled when tick_broadcast_exit() is called. Also ensure that interrupts will be disabled before running tick_broadcast_exit() even if they have been enabled by the idle state's ->enter callback. Trigger a WARN_ON_ONCE() in that case, as we generally don't want that to happen for states with CPUIDLE_FLAG_TIMER_STOP set.

2015-04-27x86: pvclock: Really remove the sched notifier for cross-cpu migrationsPaolo Bonzini1-15/+0
This reverts commits 0a4e6be9ca17c54817cf814b4b5aa60478c6df27 and 80f7fdb1c7f0f9266421f823964fd1962681f6ce. The task migration notifier was originally introduced in order to support the pvclock vsyscall with non-synchronized TSC, but KVM only supports it with synchronized TSC. Hence, on KVM the race condition is only needed due to a bad implementation on the host side, and even then it's so rare that it's mostly theoretical. As far as KVM is concerned it's possible to fix the host, avoiding the additional complexity in the vDSO and the (re)introduction of the task migration notifier. Xen, on the other hand, hasn't yet implemented vsyscall support at all, so we do not care about its plans for non-synchronized TSC.

Introduce KEXEC_CONTROL_MEMORY_GFP to allow the architecture code to override the gfp flags of the allocation for the kexec control page. The loop in kimage_alloc_normal_control_pages allocates pages with GFP_KERNEL until a page is found that happens to have an address smaller than the KEXEC_CONTROL_MEMORY_LIMIT.

2015-04-19smp: Fix error case handling in smp_call_function_*()Linus Torvalds1-1/+3
Commit 8053871d0f7f ("smp: Fix smp_call_function_single_async() locking") fixed the locking for the asynchronous smp-call case, but in the process of moving the lock handling around, one of the error cases ended up not unlocking the call data at all. This went unnoticed on x86, because this is a "caller is buggy" case, where the caller is trying to call a non-existent CPU. But apparently ARM does that (at least under qemu-arm). Bindly doing cross-cpu calls to random CPU's that aren't even online seems a bit fishy, but the error handling was clearly not correct. Simply add the missing "csd_unlock()" to the error path.

2015-04-17tracing: Fix possible out of bounds memory access when parsing enumsSteven Rostedt (Red Hat)1-0/+6
The code that replaces the enum names with the enum values in the tracepoints' format files could possible miss the end of string nul character. This was caused by processing things like backslashes, quotes and other tokens. After processing the tokens, a check for the nul character needed to be done before continuing the loop, because the loop incremented the pointer before doing the check, which could bypass the nul character.

2015-04-17oprofile: reduce mmap_sem hold for mm->exe_fileDavidlohr Bueso1-0/+1
sync_buffer() needs the mmap_sem for two distinct operations, both only occurring upon user context switch handling: 1) Dealing with the exe_file. 2) Adding the dcookie data as we need to lookup the vma that backs it. This is done via add_sample() and add_data(). This patch isolates 1), for it will no longer need the mmap_sem for serialization. However, for now, make of the more standard get_mm_exe_file(), requiring only holding the mmap_sem to read the value, and relying on reference counting to make sure that the exe file won't dissappear underneath us while doing the get dcookie. As a consequence, for 2) we move the mmap_sem locking into where we really need it, in lookup_dcookie(). The benefits are twofold: reduce mmap_sem hold times, and cleaner code.

2015-04-17prctl: avoid using mmap_sem for exe_file serializationDavidlohr Bueso2-25/+41
Oleg cleverly suggested using xchg() to set the new mm->exe_file instead of calling set_mm_exe_file() which requires some form of serialization -- mmap_sem in this case. For archs that do not have atomic rmw instructions we still fallback to a spinlock alternative, so this should always be safe. As such, we only need the mmap_sem for looking up the backing vm_file, which can be done sharing the lock. Naturally, this means we need to manually deal with both the new and old file reference counting, and we need not worry about the MMF_EXE_FILE_CHANGED bits, which can probably be deleted in the future anyway.

2015-04-17kernel/fork.c: avoid division by zeroHeinrich Schuchardt1-9/+20
PAGE_SIZE is not guaranteed to be equal to or less than 8 times the THREAD_SIZE. E.g. architecture hexagon may have page size 1M and thread size 4096. This would lead to a division by zero in the calculation of max_threads. With 32-bit calculation there is no solution which delivers valid results for all possible combinations of the parameters. The code is only called once. Hence a 64-bit calculation can be used as solution.

2015-04-17kernel/fork.c: new function for max_threadsHeinrich Schuchardt1-13/+21
PAGE_SIZE is not guaranteed to be equal to or less than 8 times the THREAD_SIZE. E.g. architecture hexagon may have page size 1M and thread size 4096. This would lead to a division by zero in the calculation of max_threads. With this patch the buggy code is moved to a separate function set_max_threads. The error is not fixed. After fixing the problem in a separate patch the new function can be reused to adjust max_threads after adding or removing memory. Argument mempages of function fork_init() is removed as totalram_pages is an exported symbol. The creation of separate patches for refactoring to a new function and for fixing the logic was suggested by Ingo Molnar.

2015-04-17fork: report pid reservation failure properlyMichal Hocko2-9/+11
copy_process will report any failure in alloc_pid as ENOMEM currently which is misleading because the pid allocation might fail not only when the memory is short but also when the pid space is consumed already. The current man page even mentions this case: : EAGAIN : : A system-imposed limit on the number of threads was encountered. : There are a number of limits that may trigger this error: the : RLIMIT_NPROC soft resource limit (set via setrlimit(2)), which : limits the number of processes and threads for a real user ID, was : reached; the kernel's system-wide limit on the number of processes : and threads, /proc/sys/kernel/threads-max, was reached (see : proc(5)); or the maximum number of PIDs, /proc/sys/kernel/pid_max, : was reached (see proc(5)). so the current behavior is also incorrect wrt. documentation. POSIX man page also suggest returing EAGAIN when the process count limit is reached. This patch simply propagates error code from alloc_pid and makes sure we return -EAGAIN due to reservation failure. This will make behavior of fork closer to both our documentation and POSIX. alloc_pid might alsoo fail when the reaper in the pid namespace is dead (the namespace basically disallows all new processes) and there is no good error code which would match documented ones. We have traditionally returned ENOMEM for this case which is misleading as well but as per Eric W. Biederman this behavior is documented in man pid_namespaces(7) : If the "init" process of a PID namespace terminates, the kernel : terminates all of the processes in the namespace via a SIGKILL signal. : This behavior reflects the fact that the "init" process is essential for : the correct operation of a PID namespace. In this case, a subsequent : fork(2) into this PID namespace will fail with the error ENOMEM; it is : not possible to create a new processes in a PID namespace whose "init" : process has terminated. and introducing a new error code would be too risky so let's stick to ENOMEM for this case.

2015-04-17signal: remove warning about using SI_TKILL in rt_[tg]sigqueueinfoVladimir Davydov1-9/+5
Sending SI_TKILL from rt_[tg]sigqueueinfo was deprecated, so now we issue a warning on the first attempt of doing it. We use WARN_ON_ONCE, which is not informative and, what is worse, taints the kernel, making the trinity syscall fuzzer complain false-positively from time to time. It does not look like we need this warning at all, because the behaviour changed quite a long time ago (2.6.39), and if an application relies on the old API, it gets EPERM anyway and can issue a warning by itself. So let us zap the warning in kernel. Signed-off-by: Vladimir Davydov <vdavydov@parallels.com> Acked-by: Oleg Nesterov <oleg@redhat.com> Cc: Richard Weinberger <richard@nod.at> Cc: "Paul E.

2015-04-17ptrace: ptrace_detach() can no longer race with SIGKILLOleg Nesterov1-10/+9
ptrace_detach() re-checks ->ptrace under tasklist lock and calls release_task() if __ptrace_detach() returns true. This was needed because the __TASK_TRACED tracee could be killed/untraced, and it could even pass exit_notify() before we take tasklist_lock. But this is no longer possible after 9899d11f6544 "ptrace: ensure arch_ptrace/ptrace_request can never race with SIGKILL". We can turn these checks into WARN_ON() and remove release_task(). While at it, document the setting of child->exit_code.

2015-04-17ptrace: fix race between ptrace_resume() and wait_task_stopped()Oleg Nesterov1-0/+20
ptrace_resume() is called when the tracee is still __TASK_TRACED. We set tracee->exit_code and then wake_up_state() changes tracee->state. If the tracer's sub-thread does wait() in between, task_stopped_code(ptrace => T) wrongly looks like another report from tracee. This confuses debugger, and since wait_task_stopped() clears ->exit_code the tracee can miss a signal. Test-case: #include <stdio.h> #include <unistd.h> #include <sys/wait.h> #include <sys/ptrace.h> #include <pthread.h> #include <assert.h> int pid; void *waiter(void *arg) { int stat; for (;;) { assert(pid == wait(&stat)); assert(WIFSTOPPED(stat)); if (WSTOPSIG(stat) == SIGHUP) continue; assert(WSTOPSIG(stat) == SIGCONT); printf("ERR! extra/wrong report:%x\n", stat); } } int main(void) { pthread_t thread; pid = fork(); if (!pid) { assert(ptrace(PTRACE_TRACEME, 0,0,0) == 0); for (;;) kill(getpid(), SIGHUP); } assert(pthread_create(&thread, NULL, waiter, NULL) == 0); for (;;) ptrace(PTRACE_CONT, pid, 0, SIGCONT); return 0; } Note for stable: the bug is very old, but without 9899d11f6544 "ptrace: ensure arch_ptrace/ptrace_request can never race with SIGKILL" the fix should use lock_task_sighand(child).

2015-04-17smp: Fix smp_call_function_single_async() lockingLinus Torvalds1-31/+47
The current smp_function_call code suffers a number of problems, most notably smp_call_function_single_async() is broken. The problem is that flush_smp_call_function_queue() does csd_unlock() _after_ calling csd->func(). This means that a caller cannot properly synchronize the csd usage as it has to. Change the code to release the csd before calling ->func() for the async case, and put a WARN_ON_ONCE(csd->flags & CSD_FLAG_LOCK) in smp_call_function_single_async() to warn us of improper serialization, because any waiting there can results in deadlocks when called with IRQs disabled. Rename the (currently) unused WAIT flag to SYNCHRONOUS and (re)use it such that we know what to do in flush_smp_call_function_queue(). Rework csd_{,un}lock() to use smp_load_acquire() / smp_store_release() to avoid some full barriers while more clearly providing lock semantics. Finally move the csd maintenance out of generic_exec_single() into its callers for clearer code.

2015-04-16bpf: fix two bugs in verification logic when accessing 'ctx' pointerAlexei Starovoitov1-2/+7
1. first bug is a silly mistake. It broke tracing examples and prevented simple bpf programs from loading. In the following code: if (insn->imm == 0 && BPF_SIZE(insn->code) == BPF_W) { } else if (...) { // this part should have been executed when // insn->code == BPF_W and insn->imm != 0 } Obviously it's not doing that. So simple instructions like: r2 = *(u64 *)(r1 + 8) will be rejected. Note the comments in the code around these branches were and still valid and indicate the true intent. Replace it with: if (BPF_SIZE(insn->code) != BPF_W) continue; if (insn->imm == 0) { } else if (...) { // now this code will be executed when // insn->code == BPF_W and insn->imm != 0 } 2. second bug is more subtle. If malicious code is using the same dest register as source register, the checks designed to prevent the same instruction to be used with different pointer types will fail to trigger, since we were assigning src_reg_type when it was already overwritten by check_mem_access(). The fix is trivial. Just move line: src_reg_type = regs[insn->src_reg].type; before check_mem_access(). Add new 'access skb fields bad4' test to check this case.

2015-04-16tracing: Fix incorrect enabling of trace events by boot cmdlineJoonsoo Kim1-1/+8
There is a problem that trace events are not properly enabled with boot cmdline. The problem is that if we pass "trace_event=kmem:mm_page_alloc" to the boot cmdline, it enables all kmem trace events, and not just the page_alloc event. This is caused by the parsing mechanism. When we parse the cmdline, the buffer contents is modified due to tokenization. And, if we use this buffer again, we will get the wrong result. Unfortunately, this buffer is be accessed three times to set trace events properly at boot time. So, we need to handle this situation. There is already code handling ",", but we need another for ":". This patch adds it.

2015-04-15kernel/reboot.c: add orderly_reboot for graceful rebootJoel Stanley1-5/+48
The kernel has orderly_poweroff which allows the kernel to initiate a graceful shutdown of userspace, by running /sbin/poweroff. This adds orderly_reboot that will cause userspace to shut itself down by calling /sbin/reboot. This will be used for shutdown initiated by a system controller on platforms that do not use ACPI. orderly_reboot() should be used when the system wants to allow userspace to gracefully shut itself down. For cases where the system may imminently catch on fire, the existing emergency_restart() provides an immediate reboot without involving userspace.

2015-04-15kernel: conditionally support non-root users, groups and capabilitiesIulia Manda6-20/+41
There are a lot of embedded systems that run most or all of their functionality in init, running as root:root. For these systems, supporting multiple users is not necessary. This patch adds a new symbol, CONFIG_MULTIUSER, that makes support for non-root users, non-root groups, and capabilities optional. It is enabled under CONFIG_EXPERT menu. When this symbol is not defined, UID and GID are zero in any possible case and processes always have all capabilities. The following syscalls are compiled out: setuid, setregid, setgid, setreuid, setresuid, getresuid, setresgid, getresgid, setgroups, getgroups, setfsuid, setfsgid, capget, capset. Also, groups.c is compiled out completely. In kernel/capability.c, capable function was moved in order to avoid adding two ifdef blocks. This change saves about 25 KB on a defconfig build. The most minimal kernels have total text sizes in the high hundreds of kB rather than low MB. (The 25k goes down a bit with allnoconfig, but not that much. The kernel was booted in Qemu. All the common functionalities work. Adding users/groups is not possible, failing with -ENOSYS.

2015-04-15mm: allow compaction of unevictable pagesEric B Munson1-0/+9
Currently, pages which are marked as unevictable are protected from compaction, but not from other types of migration. The POSIX real time extension explicitly states that mlock() will prevent a major page fault, but the spirit of this is that mlock() should give a process the ability to control sources of latency, including minor page faults. However, the mlock manpage only explicitly says that a locked page will not be written to swap and this can cause some confusion. The compaction code today does not give a developer who wants to avoid swap but wants to have large contiguous areas available any method to achieve this state. This patch introduces a sysctl for controlling compaction behavior with respect to the unevictable lru. Users who demand no page faults after a page is present can set compact_unevictable_allowed to 0 and users who need the large contiguous areas can enable compaction on locked memory by leaving the default value of 1. To illustrate this problem I wrote a quick test program that mmaps a large number of 1MB files filled with random data. These maps are created locked and read only. Then every other mmap is unmapped and I attempt to allocate huge pages to the static huge page pool. When the compact_unevictable_allowed sysctl is 0, I cannot allocate hugepages after fragmenting memory. When the value is set to 1, allocations succeed.

2015-04-15memcg: zap mem_cgroup_lookup()Vladimir Davydov1-1/+1
mem_cgroup_lookup() is a wrapper around mem_cgroup_from_id(), which checks that id != 0 before issuing the function call. Today, there is no point in this additional check apart from optimization, because there is no css with id <= 0, so that css_from_id, called by mem_cgroup_from_id, will return NULL for any id <= 0. Since mem_cgroup_from_id is only called from mem_cgroup_lookup, let us zap mem_cgroup_lookup, substituting calls to it with mem_cgroup_from_id and moving the check if id > 0 to css_from_id.
