      [PATCH] x86_64: GART DMA merging fix · 0d541064
      Andi Kleen authored
      Don't touch the non DMA members in the sg list in dma_map_sg in the IOMMU
      Some drivers (in particular ST) ran into problems because they reused the sg
      lists after passing them to pci_map_sg().  The merging procedure in the K8
      GART IOMMU corrupted the state.  This patch changes it to only touch the dma*
      entries during merging, but not the other fields.  Approach suggested by Dave

      [PATCH] arch/x86_64/kernel/traps.c PTRACE_SINGLESTEP oops · a65d17c9
      John Blackwood authored
      We found a problem with x86_64 kernels with preemption enabled, where
      having multiple tasks doing ptrace singlesteps around the same time will
      cause the system to 'oops'.  The problem seems that a task can get
      preempted out of the do_debug() processing while it is running on the
      DEBUG_STACK stack.  If another task on that same cpu then enters do_debug()
      and uses the same per-cpu DEBUG_STACK stack, the previous preempted tasks's
      stack contents can be corrupted, and the system will oops when the
      preempted task is context switched back in again.
      The typical oops looks like the following:

      This patch disables preemptions for the task upon entry to do_debug(), before
      interrupts are reenabled, and then disables preemption before exiting
      do_debug(), after disabling interrupts.  I've noticed that the task can be
      preempted either at the end of an interrupt, or on the call to
      force_sig_info() on the spin_unlock_irqrestore() processing.  It might be
      better to attempt to code a fix in entry.S around the code that calls
