2011-09-02fb: avoid possible deadlock caused by fb_set_suspendHerton Ronaldo Krzesinski1-3/+0
A lock ordering issue can cause deadlocks: in framebuffer/console code, all needed struct fb_info locks are taken before acquire_console_sem(), in places which need to take console semaphore. But fb_set_suspend is always called with console semaphore held, and inside it we call lock_fb_info which gets the fb_info lock, inverse locking order of what the rest of the code does. This causes a real deadlock issue, when we write to state fb sysfs attribute (which calls fb_set_suspend) while a framebuffer is being unregistered by remove_conflicting_framebuffers, as can be shown by following show blocked state trace on a test program which loads i915 and runs another forked processes writing to state attribute: Test process with semaphore held and trying to get fb_info lock: .. fb-test2 D 0000000000000000 0 237 228 0x00000000 ffff8800774f3d68 0000000000000082 00000000000135c0 00000000000135c0 ffff880000000000 ffff8800774f3fd8 ffff8800774f3fd8 ffff880076ee4530 00000000000135c0 ffff8800774f3fd8 ffff8800774f2000 00000000000135c0 Call Trace: [<ffffffff8141287a>] __mutex_lock_slowpath+0x11a/0x1e0 [<ffffffff814142f2>] ? _raw_spin_lock_irq+0x22/0x40 [<ffffffff814123d3>] mutex_lock+0x23/0x50 [<ffffffff8125dfc5>] lock_fb_info+0x25/0x60 [<ffffffff8125e3f0>] fb_set_suspend+0x20/0x80 [<ffffffff81263e2f>] store_fbstate+0x4f/0x70 [<ffffffff812e7f70>] dev_attr_store+0x20/0x30 [<ffffffff811c46b4>] sysfs_write_file+0xd4/0x160 [<ffffffff81155a26>] vfs_write+0xc6/0x190 [<ffffffff81155d51>] sys_write+0x51/0x90 [<ffffffff8100c012>] system_call_fastpath+0x16/0x1b .. modprobe process stalled because has the fb_info lock (got inside unregister_framebuffer) but waiting for the semaphore held by the test process which is waiting to get the fb_info lock: .. modprobe D 0000000000000000 0 230 218 0x00000000 ffff880077a4d618 0000000000000082 0000000000000001 0000000000000001 ffff880000000000 ffff880077a4dfd8 ffff880077a4dfd8 ffff8800775a2e20 00000000000135c0 ffff880077a4dfd8 ffff880077a4c000 00000000000135c0 Call Trace: [<ffffffff81411fe5>] schedule_timeout+0x215/0x310 [<ffffffff81058051>] ? get_parent_ip+0x11/0x50 [<ffffffff814130dd>] __down+0x6d/0xb0 [<ffffffff81089f71>] down+0x41/0x50 [<ffffffff810629ac>] acquire_console_sem+0x2c/0x50 [<ffffffff812ca53d>] unbind_con_driver+0xad/0x2d0 [<ffffffff8126f5f7>] fbcon_event_notify+0x457/0x890 [<ffffffff814144ff>] ? _raw_spin_unlock_irqrestore+0x1f/0x50 [<ffffffff81058051>] ? get_parent_ip+0x11/0x50 [<ffffffff8141836d>] notifier_call_chain+0x4d/0x70 [<ffffffff8108a3b8>] __blocking_notifier_call_chain+0x58/0x80 [<ffffffff8108a3f6>] blocking_notifier_call_chain+0x16/0x20 [<ffffffff8125dabb>] fb_notifier_call_chain+0x1b/0x20 [<ffffffff8125e6ac>] unregister_framebuffer+0x7c/0x130 [<ffffffff8125e8b3>] remove_conflicting_framebuffers+0x153/0x180 [<ffffffff8125eef3>] register_framebuffer+0x93/0x2c0 [<ffffffffa0331112>] drm_fb_helper_single_fb_probe+0x252/0x2f0 [drm_kms_helper] [<ffffffffa03314a3>] drm_fb_helper_initial_config+0x2f3/0x6d0 [drm_kms_helper] [<ffffffffa03318dd>] ? drm_fb_helper_single_add_all_connectors+0x5d/0x1c0 [drm_kms_helper] [<ffffffffa037b588>] intel_fbdev_init+0xa8/0x160 [i915] [<ffffffffa0343d74>] i915_driver_load+0x854/0x12b0 [i915] [<ffffffffa02f0e7e>] drm_get_pci_dev+0x19e/0x360 [drm] [<ffffffff8141821d>] ? sub_preempt_count+0x9d/0xd0 [<ffffffffa0386f91>] i915_pci_probe+0x15/0x17 [i915] [<ffffffff8124481f>] local_pci_probe+0x5f/0xd0 [<ffffffff81244f89>] pci_device_probe+0x119/0x120 [<ffffffff812eccaa>] ? driver_sysfs_add+0x7a/0xb0 [<ffffffff812ed003>] driver_probe_device+0xa3/0x290 [<ffffffff812ed1f0>] ? __driver_attach+0x0/0xb0 [<ffffffff812ed29b>] __driver_attach+0xab/0xb0 [<ffffffff812ed1f0>] ? __driver_attach+0x0/0xb0 [<ffffffff812ebd3e>] bus_for_each_dev+0x5e/0x90 [<ffffffff812ecc2e>] driver_attach+0x1e/0x20 [<ffffffff812ec6f2>] bus_add_driver+0xe2/0x320 [<ffffffffa03aa000>] ? i915_init+0x0/0x96 [i915] [<ffffffff812ed536>] driver_register+0x76/0x140 [<ffffffffa03aa000>] ? i915_init+0x0/0x96 [i915] [<ffffffff81245216>] __pci_register_driver+0x56/0xd0 [<ffffffffa02f1264>] drm_pci_init+0xe4/0xf0 [drm] [<ffffffffa03aa000>] ? i915_init+0x0/0x96 [i915] [<ffffffffa02e84a8>] drm_init+0x58/0x70 [drm] [<ffffffffa03aa094>] i915_init+0x94/0x96 [i915] [<ffffffff81002194>] do_one_initcall+0x44/0x190 [<ffffffff810a066b>] sys_init_module+0xcb/0x210 [<ffffffff8100c012>] system_call_fastpath+0x16/0x1b .. fb-test2 which reproduces above is available on kernel.org bug #26232. To solve this issue, avoid calling lock_fb_info inside fb_set_suspend, and move it out to where needed (callers of fb_set_suspend must call lock_fb_info before if needed). So far, the only place which needs to call lock_fb_info is store_fbstate, all other places which calls fb_set_suspend are suspend/resume hooks that should not need the lock as they should be run only when processes are already frozen in suspend/resume.

2011-05-14Further fbcon sanity checkingBruno Prémont1-4/+4
This moves the if (num_registered_fb == FB_MAX) return -ENXIO; check _AFTER_ the call to do_remove_conflicting_framebuffers() as this would (now in a safe way) allow a native driver to replace the conflicting one even if all slots in registered_fb[] are taken. This also prevents unregistering a framebuffer that is no longer registered (vga16f will unregister at module unload time even if the frame buffer had been unregistered earlier due to being found conflicting).

2011-05-14fbmem: fix remove_conflicting_framebuffers racesLinus Torvalds1-49/+68
When a register_framebuffer() call results in us removing old conflicting framebuffers, the new registration_lock doesn't protect that situation. And we can't just add the same locking to the function, because these functions call each other: register_framebuffer() calls remove_conflicting_framebuffers, which in turn calls unregister_framebuffer for any conflicting entry. In order to fix it, this just creates wrapper functions around all three functions and makes the versions that actually do the work be called "do_xxx()", leaving just the wrapper that gets the lock and calls the worker function. So the rule becomes simply that "do_xxxx()" has to be called with the lock held, and now do_register_framebuffer() can just call do_remove_conflicting_framebuffers(), and that in turn can call _do_unregister_framebuffer(), and there is no deadlock, and we can hold the registration lock over the whole sequence, fixing the races. It also makes error cases simpler, and fixes one situation where we would return from unregister_framebuffer() without releasing the lock, pointed out by Bruno Prémont.

2011-05-12fbmem: make read/write/ioctl use the frame buffer at open timeLinus Torvalds1-16/+34
read/write/ioctl on a fbcon file descriptor has traditionally used the fbcon not when it was opened, but as it was at the time of the call. That makes no sense, but the lack of sense is much more obvious now that we properly ref-count the usage - it means that the ref-counting doesn't actually protect operations we do on the frame buffer. This changes it to look at the fb_info that we got at open time, but in order to avoid using a frame buffer long after it has been unregistered, we do verify that it is still current, and return -ENODEV if not.

2011-05-12fbcon: add lifetime refcount to opened frame buffersLinus Torvalds1-10/+46
This just adds the refcount and the new registration lock logic. It does not (for example) actually change the read/write/ioctl routines to actually use the frame buffer that was opened: those function still end up alway susing whatever the current frame buffer is at the time of the call. Without this, if something holds the frame buffer open over a framebuffer switch, the close() operation after the switch will access a fb_info that has been free'd by the unregistering of the old frame buffer. (The read/write/ioctl operations will normally not cause problems, because they will - illogically - pick up the new fbcon instead. But a switch that happens just as one of those is going on might see problems too, the window is just much smaller: one individual op rather than the whole open-close sequence.) This use-after-free is apparently fairly easily triggered by the Ubuntu 11.04 boot sequence.

2011-01-26console: rename acquire/release_console_sem() to console_lock/unlock()Torben Hohn1-6/+6
The -rt patches change the console_semaphore to console_mutex. As a result, a quite large chunk of the patches changes all acquire/release_console_sem() to acquire/release_console_mutex() This commit makes things use more neutral function names which dont make implications about the underlying lock. The only real change is the return value of console_trylock which is inverted from try_acquire_console_sem() This patch also paves the way to switching console_sem from a semaphore to a mutex.

2010-10-28fbmem: fix fb_read, fb_write unaligned accessesJames Hogan1-32/+14
fb_{read,write} access the framebuffer using lots of fb_{read,write}l's but don't check that the file position is aligned which can cause problems on some architectures which do not support unaligned accesses. Since the operations are essentially memcpy_{from,to}io, new fb_memcpy_{from,to}fb macros have been defined and these are used instead. For Sparc, fb_{read,write} macros use sbus_{read,write}, so this defines new sbus_memcpy_{from,to}io functions the same as memcpy_{from,to}io but using sbus_{read,write}b instead of {read,write}b.

2010-10-15llseek: automatically add .llseek fopArnd Bergmann1-0/+1
All file_operations should get a .llseek operation so we can make nonseekable_open the default for future file operations without a .llseek pointer. The three cases that we can automatically detect are no_llseek, seq_lseek and default_llseek. For cases where we can we can automatically prove that the file offset is always ignored, we use noop_llseek, which maintains the current behavior of not returning an error from a seek. New drivers should normally not use noop_llseek but instead use no_llseek and call nonseekable_open at open time. Existing drivers can be converted to do the same when the maintainer knows for certain that no user code relies on calling seek on the device file. The generated code is often incorrectly indented and right now contains comments that clarify for each added line why a specific variant was chosen. In the version that gets submitted upstream, the comments will be gone and I will manually fix the indentation, because there does not seem to be a way to do that using coccinelle. Some amount of new code is currently sitting in linux-next that should get the same modifications, which I will do at the end of the merge window. Many thanks to Julia Lawall for helping me learn to write a semantic patch that does all this. ===== begin semantic patch ===== // This adds an llseek= method to all file operations, // as a preparation for making no_llseek the default. // // The rules are // - use no_llseek explicitly if we do nonseekable_open // - use seq_lseek for sequential files // - use default_llseek if we know we access f_pos // - use noop_llseek if we know we don't access f_pos, // but we still want to allow users to call lseek // @ open1 exists @ identifier nested_open; @@ nested_open(...) { <+... nonseekable_open(...) ...+> } @ open exists@ identifier open_f; identifier i, f; identifier open1.nested_open; @@ int open_f(struct inode *i, struct file *f) { <+...

2010-08-11fbmem: VM_IO set, but not propagatedDaniel De Graaf1-0/+1
When we setup up the VMA flags for the mmap flag and we end up using the fallback mmap functionality we set the vma->vm_flags |= VM_IO. However we neglect to propagate the flag to the vma->vm_page_prot. This bug was found when Linux kernel was running under Xen. In that scenario, any page that has VM_IO flag to it, means that it MUST be a MMIO/VRAM backend memory , _not_ System RAM. That is what the fbmem.c does: sets VM_IO, ioremaps the region - everything is peachy. Well, not exactly. The vm_page_prot does not get the relevant PTE flags set (_PAGE_IOMAP) which under Xen is a death-kneel to pages that are referencing real physical devices but don't have that flag set.

2009-09-23fb: do not ignore fb_set_par errorsFlorian Tobias Schandinat1-2/+13
At the moment about half of the framebuffer drivers can return an error code in fb_set_par. Until now it would be silently ignored by fbmem.c and fbcon.c. This patch fixes fbmem.c to return the error code and restore var on error. But it is not clear in which video mode the device is when fb_set_par fails. It would be good and reasonable if it were in the old state but there is no guarantee that this is true for all existing drivers. Additionally print a message if a failing fb_set_par is detected in fbmem.c or fbcon.c. Although most errors should be caught by the previous fb_check_var some errors can't as they are dynamic (memory allocations, ...) and can only be detected while performing the operations which is forbidden in fb_check_var. This patch shouldn't have a negative impact on normal operation as all drivers return 0 on success. The impact in case of error depends heavily on the driver and caller but it's expected to be better than before.

2009-09-23fb: fix fb_pan_display range checkFlorian Tobias Schandinat1-2/+2
Fix the range check for panning. The current code fails to detect some invalid values (very high ones that can occur if an app tries to move further up/left than 0,0) as the check uses the unknown values for calculation so that an overflow can occur. To fix this it is sufficient to move the calculation to the right side to use only trusted values. Kai Jiang detected this problem and proposed an initial patch.

2009-07-01fbdev: add mutex for fb_mmap lockingKrzysztof Helt1-8/+5
Add a mutex to avoid a circular locking problem between the mm layer semaphore and fbdev ioctl mutex through the fb_mmap() call. Also, add mutex to all places where smem_start and smem_len fields change so the mutex inside the fb_mmap() is actually used. Changing of these fields before calling the framebuffer_register() are not mutexed. This is 2.6.31 material. It removes one lockdep (fb_mmap() and register_framebuffer()) but there is still another one (fb_release() and register_framebuffer()). It also cleans up handling of the smem_start and smem_len fields used by mutexed section of the fb_mmap().

2009-06-17fbdev: add support for handoff from firmware to hw framebuffersDave Airlie1-0/+31
With KMS we have ran into an issue where we really want the KMS fb driver to be the one running the console, so panics etc can be shown by switching out of X etc. However with vesafb/efifb built-in, we end up with those on fb0 and the KMS fb driver on fb1, driving the same piece of hw, so this adds an fb info flag to denote a firmware fbdev, and adds a new aperture base/size range which can be compared when the hw drivers are installed to see if there is a conflict with a firmware driver, and if there is the firmware driver is unregistered and the hw driver takes over. It uses new aperture_base/size members instead of comparing on the fix smem_start/length, as smem_start/length might for example only cover the first 1MB of the PCI aperture, and we could allocate the kms fb from 8MB into the aperture, thus they would never overlap.

Avoid calling copy_from/to_user() with fb_info->lock mutex held in fbmem ioctl(). fb_mmap() is called under mm->mmap_sem (A) held, that also acquires fb_info->lock (B); fb_ioctl() takes fb_info->lock (B) and does copy_from/to_user() that might acquire mm->mmap_sem (A), causing a deadlock. NOTE: it doesn't push down the fb_info->lock in each own driver's fb_ioctl(), so there are still potential deadlocks elsewhere.

The code to draw penguin logos always uses some properties of the main logo. This is incorrect if additional logos (CONFIG_FB_LOGO_EXTRA=y) have different types than the main logo, which causes corrupted logo images. http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12181 Hence skip additional logos that are not compatible with the main logo. Technically, it's possible to draw multiple logos of different types on truecolor displays, but this would complicate the (already quite complicated) logo drawing code even more.

commit 3e680aae4e53ab54cdbb0c29257dae0cbb158e1c ("fb: convert lock/unlock_kernel() into local fb mutex") introduced several deadlocks in the fb_compat_ioctl() path, as mutex_lock() doesn't allow recursion, unlike lock_kernel(). This broke frame buffer applications on 64-bit systems with a 32-bit userland. commit 120a37470c2831fea49fdebaceb5a7039f700ce6 ("framebuffer compat_ioctl deadlock") fixed one of the deadlocks. This patch fixes the remaining deadlocks: - Revert commit 120a37470c2831fea49fdebaceb5a7039f700ce6, - Extract the core logic of fb_ioctl() into a new function do_fb_ioctl(), - Change all callsites of fb_ioctl() where info->lock is already held to call do_fb_ioctl() instead, - Add sparse annotations to all routines that take info->lock.
