2015-02-14x86_64: add KASan supportAndrey Ryabinin1-0/+2
This patch adds arch specific code for kernel address sanitizer. 16TB of virtual addressed used for shadow memory. It's located in range [ffffec0000000000 - fffffc0000000000] between vmemmap and %esp fixup stacks. At early stage we map whole shadow region with zero page. Latter, after pages mapped to direct mapping address range we unmap zero pages from corresponding shadow (see kasan_map_shadow()) and allocate and map a real shadow memory reusing vmemmap_populate() function. Also replace __pa with __pa_nodebug before shadow initialized. __pa with CONFIG_DEBUG_VIRTUAL=y make external function call (__phys_addr) __phys_addr is instrumented, so __asan_load could be called before shadow area initialized.

2015-01-02x86, entry: Switch stacks on a paranoid entry from userspaceAndy Lutomirski2-9/+17
This causes all non-NMI, non-double-fault kernel entries from userspace to run on the normal kernel stack. Double-fault is exempt to minimize confusion if we double-fault directly from userspace due to a bad kernel stack. This is, suprisingly, simpler and shorter than the current code. It removes the IMO rather frightening paranoid_userspace path, and it make sync_regs much simpler. There is no risk of stack overflow due to this change -- the kernel stack that we switch to is empty. This will also enable us to create non-atomic sections within machine checks from userspace, which will simplify memory failure handling. It will also allow the upcoming fsgsbase code to be simplified, because it doesn't need to worry about usergs when scheduling in paranoid_exit, as that code no longer exists.

2014-12-15x86, mpx: Update documentationDave Hansen1-3/+9
I was writing some MPX test programs and realized that the current design makes it tricky. I did something like: bndcfgu |= bnd_dir | BNDCFGU_ENABLE; xrstor(); printf("xrstor done"); // #BR bounds exception here prctl(MPX_ENABLE_MANAGEMENT); and then compiled the app with "-fcheck-pointer-bounds -mmpx" to enable MPX instrumentation. The problem is that there is MPX instrumentation inserted in to the area of the printf(). The kernel gets a bounds exception and since management isn't yet enabled, it SIGSEGV's. Add a bit to the documentation to explain a way around this and where apps need to be careful.

Most of the logic here is in the documentation file. Please take a look at it. I know we've come full-circle here back to a tunable, but this new one is *WAY* simpler. I challenge anyone to describe in one sentence how the old one worked. Here's the way the new one works: If we are flushing more pages than the ceiling, we use the full flush, otherwise we use per-page flushes.

2014-04-30x86-64, espfix: Don't leak bits 31:16 of %esp returning to 16-bit stackH. Peter Anvin1-0/+2
The IRET instruction, when returning to a 16-bit segment, only restores the bottom 16 bits of the user space stack pointer. This causes some 16-bit software to break, but it also leaks kernel state to user space. We have a software workaround for that ("espfix") for the 32-bit kernel, but it relies on a nonzero stack segment base which is not available in 64-bit mode. In checkin: b3b42ac2cbae x86-64, modify_ldt: Ban 16-bit segments on 64-bit kernels we "solved" this by forbidding 16-bit segments on 64-bit kernels, with the logic that 16-bit support is crippled on 64-bit kernels anyway (no V86 support), but it turns out that people are doing stuff like running old Win16 binaries under Wine and expect it to work. This works around this by creating percpu "ministacks", each of which is mapped 2^16 times 64K apart. When we detect that the return SS is on the LDT, we copy the IRET frame to the ministack and use the relevant alias to return to userspace. The ministacks are mapped readonly, so if IRET faults we promote #GP to #DF which is an IST vector and thus has its own stack; we then do the fixup in the #DF handler. (Making #GP an IST exception would make the msr_safe functions unsafe in NMI/MC context, and quite possibly have other effects.) Special thanks to: - Andy Lutomirski, for the suggestion of using very small stack slots and copy (as opposed to map) the IRET frame there, and for the suggestion to mark them readonly and let the fault promote to #DF. - Konrad Wilk for paravirt fixup and testing. - Borislav Petkov for testing help and useful comments.

2013-12-29x86: Add xloadflags bit for EFI runtime support on kexecDave Young1-0/+3
Old kexec-tools can not load new kernels. The reason is kexec-tools does not fill efi_info in x86 setup header previously, thus EFI failed to initialize. In new kexec-tools it will by default to fill efi_info and pass other EFI required infomation to 2nd kernel so kexec kernel EFI initialization can succeed finally. To prevent from breaking userspace, add a new xloadflags bit so kexec-tools can check the flag and switch to old logic.

2013-11-02x86/efi: Runtime services virtual mappingBorislav Petkov1-0/+7
We map the EFI regions needed for runtime services non-contiguously, with preserved alignment on virtual addresses starting from -4G down for a total max space of 64G. This way, we provide for stable runtime services addresses across kernels so that a kexec'd kernel can still use them. Thus, they're mapped in a separate pagetable so that we don't pollute the kernel namespace. Add an efi= kernel command line parameter for passing miscellaneous options and chicken bits from the command line. While at it, add a chicken bit called "efi=old_map" which can be used as a fallback to the old runtime services mapping method in case there's some b0rkage with a particular EFI implementation (haha, it is hard to hold up the sarcasm here...). Also, add the UEFI RT VA space to Documentation/x86/x86_64/mm.txt. Signed-off-by: Borislav Petkov <bp@suse.de> Signed-off-by: Matt Fleming <matt.fleming@intel.com>

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip Pull x86 mm changes from Peter Anvin: "This is a huge set of several partly interrelated (and concurrently developed) changes, which is why the branch history is messier than one would like. The *really* big items are two humonguous patchsets mostly developed by Yinghai Lu at my request, which completely revamps the way we create initial page tables. In particular, rather than estimating how much memory we will need for page tables and then build them into that memory -- a calculation that has shown to be incredibly fragile -- we now build them (on 64 bits) with the aid of a "pseudo-linear mode" -- a #PF handler which creates temporary page tables on demand. This has several advantages: 1. It makes it much easier to support things that need access to data very early (a followon patchset uses this to load microcode way early in the kernel startup). 2. It allows the kernel and all the kernel data objects to be invoked from above the 4 GB limit. This allows kdump to work on very large systems. 3. It greatly reduces the difference between Xen and native (Xen's equivalent of the #PF handler are the temporary page tables created by the domain builder), eliminating a bunch of fragile hooks. The patch series also gets us a bit closer to W^X. Additional work in this pull is the 64-bit get_user() work which you were also involved with, and a bunch of cleanups/speedups to __phys_addr()/__pa()." * 'x86-mm-for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip: (105 commits) x86, mm: Move reserving low memory later in initialization x86, doc: Clarify the use of asm("%edx") in uaccess.h x86, mm: Redesign get_user with a __builtin_choose_expr hack x86: Be consistent with data size in getuser.S x86, mm: Use a bitfield to mask nuisance get_user() warnings x86/kvm: Fix compile warning in kvm_register_steal_time() x86-32: Add support for 64bit get_user() x86-32, mm: Remove reference to alloc_remap() x86-32, mm: Remove reference to resume_map_numa_kva() x86-32, mm: Rip out x86_32 NUMA remapping code x86/numa: Use __pa_nodebug() instead x86: Don't panic if can not alloc buffer for swiotlb mm: Add alloc_bootmem_low_pages_nopanic() x86, 64bit, mm: hibernate use generic mapping_init x86, 64bit, mm: Mark data/bss/brk to nx x86: Merge early kernel reserve for 32bit and 64bit x86: Add Crash kernel low reservation x86, kdump: Remove crashkernel range find limit for 64bit memblock: Add memblock_mem_size() x86, boot: Not need to check setup_header version for setup_data ...

Define the 2.12 bzImage boot protocol: add xloadflags and additional fields to allow the command line, initramfs and struct boot_params to live above the 4 GiB mark. The xloadflags now communicates if this is a 64-bit kernel with the legacy 64-bit entry point and which of the EFI handover entry points are supported. Avoid adding new read flags to loadflags because of claimed bootloaders testing the whole byte for == 1 to determine bzImageness at least until the issue can be researched further.
