      arch: fix has_transparent_hugepage() · fd8cfd30
      Hugh Dickins authored
      I've just discovered that the useful-sounding has_transparent_hugepage()
      is actually an architecture-dependent minefield: on some arches it only
      builds if CONFIG_TRANSPARENT_HUGEPAGE=y, on others it's also there when
      not, but on some of those (arm and arm64) it then gives the wrong
      answer; and on mips alone it's marked __init, which would crash if
      called later (but so far it has not been called later).
      Straighten this out: make it available to all configs, with a sensible
      default in asm-generic/pgtable.h, removing its definitions from those
      arches (arc, arm, arm64, sparc, tile) which are served by the default,
      adding #define has_transparent_hugepage has_transparent_hugepage to
      those (mips, powerpc, s390, x86) which need to override the default at
      runtime, and removing the __init from mips (but maybe that kind of code
      should be avoided after init: set a static variable the first time it's

      KVM: halt_polling: provide a way to qualify wakeups during poll · 3491caf2
      Christian Borntraeger authored
      Some wakeups should not be considered a sucessful poll. For example on
      s390 I/O interrupts are usually floating, which means that _ALL_ CPUs
      would be considered runnable - letting all vCPUs poll all the time for
      transactional like workload, even if one vCPU would be enough.
      This can result in huge CPU usage for large guests.
      This patch lets architectures provide a way to qualify wakeups if they
      should be considered a good/bad wakeups in regard to polls.
      For s390 the implementation will fence of halt polling for anything but
      known good, single vCPU events. The s390 implementation for floating
      interrupts does a wakeup for one vCPU, but the interrupt will be delivered
      by whatever CPU checks first for a pending interrupt. We prefer the
      woken up CPU by marking the poll of this CPU as "good" poll.
      This code will also mark several other wakeup reasons like IPI or
      expired timers as "good". This will of course also mark some events as
      not sucessful. As  KVM on z runs always as a 2nd level hypervisor,
      we prefer to not poll, unless we are really sure, though.
      This patch successfully limits the CPU usage for cases like uperf 1byte
      transactional ping pong workload or wakeup heavy workload like OLTP
      while still providing a proper speedup.
      This also introduced a new vcpu stat "halt_poll_no_tuning" that marks
      wakeups that are considered not good for polling.

      kvm: arm64: Enable hardware updates of the Access Flag for Stage 2 page tables · 06485053
      Catalin Marinas authored
      The ARMv8.1 architecture extensions introduce support for hardware
      updates of the access and dirty information in page table entries. With
      VTCR_EL2.HA enabled (bit 21), when the CPU accesses an IPA with the
      PTE_AF bit cleared in the stage 2 page table, instead of raising an
      Access Flag fault to EL2 the CPU sets the actual page table entry bit
      (10). To ensure that kernel modifications to the page table do not
      inadvertently revert a bit set by hardware updates, certain Stage 2
      software pte/pmd operations must be performed atomically.
      The main user of the AF bit is the kvm_age_hva() mechanism. The
      kvm_age_hva_handler() function performs a "test and clear young" action
      on the pte/pmd. This needs to be atomic in respect of automatic hardware
      updates of the AF bit. Since the AF bit is in the same position for both
      Stage 1 and Stage 2, the patch reuses the existing
      ptep_test_and_clear_young() functionality if
      __HAVE_ARCH_PTEP_TEST_AND_CLEAR_YOUNG is defined. Otherwise, the
      existing pte_young/pte_mkold mechanism is preserved.
      The kvm_set_s2pte_readonly() (and the corresponding pmd equivalent) have
      to perform atomic modifications in order to avoid a race with updates of
      the AF bit. The arm64 implementation has been re-written using
      Currently, kvm_set_s2pte_writable() (and pmd equivalent) take a pointer
      argument and modify the pte/pmd in place. However, these functions are
      only used on local variables rather than actual page table entries, so
      it makes more sense to follow the pte_mkwrite() approach for stage 1
      attributes. The change to kvm_s2pte_mkwrite() makes it clear that these
      functions do not modify the actual page table entries.
      The (pte|pmd)_mkyoung() uses on Stage 2 entries (setting the AF bit
      explicitly) do not need to be modified since hardware updates of the
      dirty status are not supported by KVM, so there is no possibility of
      losing such information.

      As a set of driver-provided callbacks and static data, there is no
      compelling reason for struct iommu_ops to be mutable in core code, so

      asm-generic: Drop renameat syscall from default list · b0da6d44
      James Hogan authored
      The newer renameat2 syscall provides all the functionality provided by
      the renameat syscall and adds flags, so future architectures won't need
      to include renameat.
      Therefore drop the renameat syscall from the generic syscall list unless
      __ARCH_WANT_RENAMEAT is defined by the architecture's unistd.h prior to
      including asm-generic/unistd.h, and adjust all architectures using the
      generic syscall list to define it so that no in-tree architectures are

      arm64: always use STRICT_MM_TYPECHECKS · 2326df55
      Yang Shi authored
      Inspired by the counterpart of powerpc [1], which shows there is no negative
      effect on code generation from enabling STRICT_MM_TYPECHECKS with a modern
      And, Arnd's comment [2] about that patch says STRICT_MM_TYPECHECKS could
      be default as long as the architecture can pass structures in registers as
      function arguments. ARM64 can do it as long as the size of structure <= 16
      bytes. All the page table value types are u64 on ARM64.
      The below disassembly demonstrates it, entry is pte_t type:
                  entry = arch_make_huge_pte(entry, vma, page, writable);

      arm64: kvm: Fix kvm teardown for systems using the extended idmap · c612505f
      James Morse authored
      If memory is located above 1<<VA_BITS, kvm adds an extra level to its page
      tables, merging the runtime tables and boot tables that contain the idmap.
      This lets us avoid the trampoline dance during initialisation.
      This also means there is no trampoline page mapped, so
      __cpu_reset_hyp_mode() can't call __kvm_hyp_reset() in this page. The good
      news is the idmap is still mapped, so we don't need the trampoline page.
      The bad news is we can't call it directly as the idmap is above
      HYP_PAGE_OFFSET, so its address is masked by kvm_call_hyp.
      Add a function __extended_idmap_trampoline which will branch into
      __kvm_hyp_reset in the idmap, change kvm_hyp_reset_entry() to return
      this address if __kvm_cpu_uses_extended_idmap(). In this case
      __kvm_hyp_reset() will still switch to the boot tables (which are the
      merged tables that were already in use), and branch into the idmap (where
      it already was).
      This fixes boot failures on these systems, where we fail to execute the
      missing trampoline page when tearing down kvm in init_subsystems():
