      powerpc/mm: Fix _PAGE_COHERENT support on classic ppc32 HW · f99fb8a2

          powerpc/mm: Rework usage of _PAGE_COHERENT/NO_CACHE/GUARDED
      broke setting of the _PAGE_COHERENT bit in the PPC HW PTE.  Since we now
      actually set _PAGE_COHERENT in the Linux PTE we shouldn't be clearing it
      out before we propogate it to the PPC HW PTE.

      Fix regression due to 5a6fe125

      the macro hugetlb_file_setup().

      Do not account for the address space used by hugetlbfs using VM_ACCOUNT · 5a6fe125
      Mel Gorman authored
      When overcommit is disabled, the core VM accounts for pages used by anonymous
      shared, private mappings and special mappings. It keeps track of VMAs that
      should be accounted for with VM_ACCOUNT and VMAs that never had a reserve
      with VM_NORESERVE.
      Overcommit for hugetlbfs is much riskier than overcommit for base pages
      due to contiguity requirements. It avoids overcommiting on both shared and
      private mappings using reservation counters that are checked and updated
      during mmap(). This ensures (within limits) that hugepages exist in the
      future when faults occurs or it is too easy to applications to be SIGKILLed.
      As hugetlbfs makes its own reservations of a different unit to the base page
      size, VM_ACCOUNT should never be set. Even if the units were correct, we would
      double account for the usage in the core VM and hugetlbfs. VM_NORESERVE may
      be set because an application can request no reserves be made for hugetlbfs
      at the risk of getting killed later.
      With commit fc8744ad
      , VM_NORESERVE and
      VM_ACCOUNT are getting unconditionally set for hugetlbfs-backed mappings. This
      breaks the accounting for both the core VM and hugetlbfs, can trigger an
      OOM storm when hugepage pools are too small lockups and corrupted counters
      otherwise are used. This patch brings hugetlbfs more in line with how the
      core VM treats VM_NORESERVE but prevents VM_ACCOUNT being set.

      tracing, x86: fix fixup section to return to original code · e3944bfa
      Steven Rostedt authored
      Impact: fix to prevent a kernel crash on fault
      If for some reason the pointer to the parent function on the
      stack takes a fault, the fix up code will not return back to
      the original faulting code. This can lead to unpredictable
      results and perhaps even a kernel panic.
      A fault should not happen, but if it does, we should simply
      disable the tracer, warn, and continue running the kernel.
      It should not lead to a kernel crash.
