      ARM: 8049/1: ftrace/add save_stack_trace_regs() implementation · 9c986661
      Lin Yongting authored
      When configure kprobe events of ftrace with "stacktrace" option enabled
      in arm, there is no stacktrace was recorded after the kprobe event was
      triggered. The root cause is no save_stack_trace_regs() function implemented.
      Implement the save_stack_trace_regs() function in arm, then ftrace will
      call this architecture-related function to record the stacktrace into
      ring buffer.
      After this fix, stacktrace can be recorded, for example:
       # mount -t debugfs nodev /sys/kernel/debug
       # echo "p:netrx net_rx_action" >> /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/kprobe_events
       # echo 1 > /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/events/kprobes/netrx/enable

      ARM: 8062/1: Modify ldrt fixup handler to re-execute the userspace instruction · 3780f7ab
      Arun K S authored
      We will reach fixup handler when one thread(say cpu0) caused an undefined exception, while another thread(say cpu1) is unmmaping the page.
      Fixup handler returns to the next userspace instruction which has caused the undef execption, rather than going to the same instruction.
      ARM ARM says that after undefined exception, the PC will be pointing
      to the next instruction. ie +4 offset in case of ARM and +2 in case of Thumb
      And there is no correction offset passed to vector_stub in case of
      undef exception.
      File: arch/arm/kernel/entry-armv.S +1085
      vector_stub     und, UND_MODE
      During an undefined exception, in normal scenario(ie when ldrt
      instruction does not cause an abort) after resorting the context in
      VFP hardware, the PC is modified as show below before jumping to
      ret_from_exception which is in r9.
      File: arch/arm/vfp/vfphw.S +169
      @ The context stored in the VFP hardware is up to date with this thread
         tst     r1, #FPEXC_EX
         bne     process_exception     @ might as well handle the pending

                                       @ out before setting an FPEXC that
                                       @ stops us reading stuff
              VFPFMXR FPEXC, r1        @ Restore FPEXC last
              sub     r2, r2, #4       @ Retry current instruction - if Thumb
              str     r2, [sp, #S_PC]  @ mode it's two 16-bit instructions,
                                       @ else it's one 32-bit instruction, so
                                       @ always subtract 4 from the following
                                       @ instruction address.
      But if ldrt results in an abort, we reach the fixup handler and return
      to ret_from_execption without correcting the pc.
      This patch modifes the fixup handler to re-execute the same instruction which caused undefined execption.

      ARM: stacktrace: avoid listing stacktrace functions in stacktrace · 3683f44c
      Russell King authored
      While debugging the FEC ethernet driver using stacktrace, it was noticed
      that the stacktraces always begin as follows:
       [<c00117b4>] save_stack_trace_tsk+0x0/0x98
       [<c0011870>] save_stack_trace+0x24/0x28
      This is because the stack trace code includes the stack frames for itself.
      This is incorrect behaviour, and also leads to "skip" doing the wrong
      thing (which is the number of stack frames to avoid recording.)
      Perversely, it does the right thing when passed a non-current thread.  Fix
      this by ensuring that we have a known constant number of frames above the
      main stack trace function, and always skip these.

      ARM: dma-mapping: avoid calling dma_cache_maint_page() on dev=>cpu · deace4a6
      Russell King authored
      Avoid calling dma_cache_maint_page() when unmapping a DMA_TO_DEVICE
      buffer.  The L1 cache ops never do anything in this circumstance, nor
      do they ever need to - all that matters for this case is that the data
      written is visible to the device before DMA starts.  What happens during
      the transfer (provided the buffer is not written to) is of no real
      We already do this optimisation for the L2 cache.

      The bad pfn:fa442 is not system memory(mem=384M mem=512M@7680M), after debugging,
      I find in page fault handler, will get wrong pfn from pte just after set pte,
      as follow:
      	set_pte_at(mm, address, page_table, entry);
      	//debug code
      	pfn = pte_pfn(entry);
      	pr_info("pfn:0x%lx, pte:0x%llxn", pfn, pte_val(entry));
      	//read out the pte just set
      	new_pte = pte_offset_map(pmd, address);
      	new_pfn = pte_pfn(*new_pte);
      	pr_info("new pfn:0x%lx, new pte:0x%llxn", pfn, pte_val(entry));
      pfn:   0x1fa4f5,     pte:0xc00001fa4f575f
      new_pfn:0xfa4f5, new_pte:0xc00000fa4f5f5f	//new pfn/pte is wrong.
      The bug is happened in cpu_v7_set_pte_ext(ptep, pte):
      An LPAE PTE is a 64bit quantity, passed to cpu_v7_set_pte_ext in the r2 and r3 registers.
      On an LE kernel, r2 contains the LSB of the PTE, and r3 the MSB.
      On a BE kernel, the assignment is reversed.
      Unfortunately, the current code always assumes the LE case,
      leading to corruption of the PTE when clearing/setting bits.
      This patch fixes this issue much like it has been done already in the
      cpu_v7_switch_mm case.

      ARM: 8036/1: Enable IRQs before attempting to read user space in __und_usr · 1417a6b8
      Catalin Marinas authored
      The Undef abort handler in the kernel reads the undefined instruction
      from user space. If the page table was modified from another CPU, the
      user access could fail and do_page_fault() will be executed with
      interrupts disabled. This can potentially deadlock on ARM11MPCore or on
      Cortex-A15 with erratum 798181 workaround enabled (both implying IPI for
      TLB maintenance with page table lock held).
      This patch enables the IRQs in __und_usr before attempting to read the
      instruction from user space.

      sym53c8xx_2: Set DID_REQUEUE return code when aborting squeue · fd1232b2
      Mikulas Patocka authored
      This patch fixes I/O errors with the sym53c8xx_2 driver when the disk
      returns QUEUE FULL status.
      When the controller encounters an error (including QUEUE FULL or BUSY
      status), it aborts all not yet submitted requests in the function
      This function aborts them with DID_SOFT_ERROR.
      If the disk has full tag queue, the request that caused the overflow is
      aborted with QUEUE FULL status (and the scsi midlayer properly retries
      it until it is accepted by the disk), but the sym53c8xx_2 driver aborts
      the following requests with DID_SOFT_ERROR --- for them, the midlayer
      does just a few retries and then signals the error up to sd.
      The result is that disk returning QUEUE FULL causes request failures.
      The error was reproduced on 53c895 with COMPAQ BD03685A24 disk
      (rebranded ST336607LC) with command queue 48 or 64 tags.  The disk has
      64 tags, but under some access patterns it return QUEUE FULL when there
      are less than 64 pending tags.  The SCSI specification allows returning
      QUEUE FULL anytime and it is up to the host to retry.

      powerpc: Don't try to set LPCR unless we're in hypervisor mode · 18aa0da3
      Paul Mackerras authored
      Commit 8f619b54
       ("powerpc/ppc64: Do not turn AIL (reloc-on
      interrupts) too early") added code to set the AIL bit in the LPCR
      without checking whether the kernel is running in hypervisor mode.  The
      result is that when the kernel is running as a guest (i.e., under
      PowerKVM or PowerVM), the processor takes a privileged instruction
      interrupt at that point, causing a panic.  The visible result is that
      the kernel hangs after printing "returning from prom_init".
      This fixes it by checking for hypervisor mode being available before
      setting LPCR.  If we are not in hypervisor mode, we enable relocation-on
      interrupts later in pSeries_setup_arch using the H_SET_MODE hcall.

          second argument via skb->len.  This is dangerous because the moment
          the skb is added to the receive queue it can be consumed in another
          context and freed up.
          It turns out also that none of the sk->sk_data_ready()
          implementations even care about this second argument.
          So just kill it off and thus fix all these use-after-free bugs as a
          side effect.
       6) Fix inverted test in tcp_v6_send_response(), from Lorenzo Colitti.
       7) pktgen needs to do locking properly for LLTX devices, from Daniel
       8) xen-netfront driver initializes TX array entries in RX loop :-) From
          Vincenzo Maffione.
       9) After refactoring, some tunnel drivers allow a tunnel to be
          configured on top itself.  Fix from Nicolas Dichtel.
