      ARM: 8515/2: move .vectors and .stubs sections back into the kernel VMA · 31b96cae
      Ard Biesheuvel authored
      Commit b9b32bf7 ("ARM: use linker magic for vectors and vector stubs")
      updated the linker script to emit the .vectors and .stubs sections into a
      VMA range that is zero based and disjoint from the normal static kernel
      region. The reason for that was that this way, the sections can be placed
      exactly 4 KB apart, while the payload of the .vectors section is only 32
      Since the symbols that are part of the .stubs section are emitted into the
      kallsyms table, they appear with zero based addresses as well, e.g.,
        00001004 t vector_rst
        00001020 t vector_irq
        000010a0 t vector_dabt
        00001120 t vector_pabt
        000011a0 t vector_und
        00001220 t vector_addrexcptn
        00001240 t vector_fiq
        00001240 T vector_fiq_offset
      As this confuses perf when it accesses the kallsyms tables, commit
       ("scripts/link-vmlinux.sh: only filter kernel symbols for
      arm") implemented a somewhat ugly special case for ARM, where the value
      of CONFIG_PAGE_OFFSET is passed to scripts/kallsyms, and symbols whose
      addresses are below it are filtered out. Note that this special case only
      applies to CONFIG_XIP_KERNEL=n, not because the issue the patch addresses
      exists only in that case, but because finding a limit below which to apply
      the filtering is not entirely straightforward.
      Since the .vectors and .stubs sections contain position independent code
      that is never executed in place, we can emit it at its most likely runtime
      VMA (for more recent CPUs), which is 0xffff0000 for the vector table and
      0xffff1000 for the stubs. Not only does this fix the perf issue with
      kallsyms, allowing us to drop the special case in scripts/kallsyms
      entirely, it also gives debuggers a more realistic view of the address
      space, and setting breakpoints or single stepping through code in the
      vector table or the stubs is more likely to work as expected on CPUs that
      use a high vector address. E.g.,
        00001240 A vector_fiq_offset
        c0c35000 T __init_begin
        c0c35000 T __vectors_start
        c0c35020 T __stubs_start
        c0c35020 T __vectors_end
        c0c352e0 T _sinittext
        c0c352e0 T __stubs_end
        ffff1004 t vector_rst
        ffff1020 t vector_irq
        ffff10a0 t vector_dabt
        ffff1120 t vector_pabt
        ffff11a0 t vector_und
        ffff1220 t vector_addrexcptn
        ffff1240 T vector_fiq
      (Note that vector_fiq_offset is now an absolute symbol, which kallsyms
      already ignores by default)
      The LMA footprint is identical with or without this change, only the VMAs
      are different:

      ARM: 8514/1: remove duplicate definitions of __vectors_start and __stubs_start · b48da558
      Ard Biesheuvel authored
      Commit b9b32bf7
       ("ARM: use linker magic for vectors and vector stubs")
      introduced new global definitions of __vectors_start and __stubs_start,
      and changed the existing ones to have internal linkage only. However, these
      symbols are still visible to kallsyms, and due to the way the .vectors and
      .stubs sections are emitted at the base of the VMA space, these duplicate
      definitions have conflicting values.
        $ nm -n vmlinux |grep -E __vectors|__stubs
        00000000 t __vectors_start
        00001000 t __stubs_start
        c0e77000 T __vectors_start
        c0e77020 T __stubs_start
      This is completely harmless by itself, since the wrong values are local
      symbols that cannot be referenced by other object files directly. However,
      since these symbols are also listed in the kallsyms symbol table in some
      cases (i.e., CONFIG_KALLSYMS_ALL=y and CONFIG_XIP_KERNEL=y), having these
      conflicting values can be confusing. So either remove them, or make them
      strictly local.

      ARM: 8513/1: xip: Move XIP linking to a separate file · 538bf469
      Chris Brandt authored
      When building an XIP kernel, the linker script needs to be much different
      than a conventional kernel's script. Over time, it's been difficult to
      maintain both XIP and non-XIP layouts in one linker script. Therefore,
      this patch separates the two procedures into two completely different
      The new linker script is essentially a straight copy of the current script
      with all the non-CONFIG_XIP_KERNEL portions removed.
      Additionally, all CONFIG_XIP_KERNEL portions have been removed from the
      existing linker script...never to return again.
      It should be noted that this does not fix any current XIP issues, but
      rather is the first move in fixing them properly with subsequent patches.

      ARM: 8511/1: ARM64: kernel: PSCI: move PSCI idle management code to drivers/firmware · 8b6f2499
      Lorenzo Pieralisi authored
      ARM64 PSCI kernel interfaces that initialize idle states and implement
      the suspend API to enter them are generic and can be shared with the
      ARM architecture.
      To achieve that goal, this patch moves ARM64 PSCI idle management
      code to drivers/firmware, so that the interface to initialize and
      enter idle states can actually be shared by ARM and ARM64 arches
      The ARM generic CPUidle implementation also requires the definition of
      a cpuidle_ops section entry for the kernel to initialize the CPUidle
      operations at boot based on the enable-method (ie ARM64 has the
      statically initialized cpu_ops counterparts for that purpose); therefore
      this patch also adds the required section entry on CONFIG_ARM for PSCI so
      that the kernel can initialize the PSCI CPUidle back-end when PSCI is
      the probed enable-method.
      On ARM64 this patch provides no functional change.

      ARM: 8510/1: rework ARM_CPU_SUSPEND dependencies · 1b9bdf5c
      Lorenzo Pieralisi authored
      The code enabled by the ARM_CPU_SUSPEND config option is used by
      kernel subsystems for purposes that go beyond system suspend so its
      config entry should be augmented to take more default options into
      account and avoid forcing its selection to prevent dependencies
      To achieve this goal, this patch reworks the ARM_CPU_SUSPEND config
      entry and updates its default config value (by adding the BL_SWITCHER
      option to it) and its dependencies (ARCH_SUSPEND_POSSIBLE), so that the
      symbol is still selected by default by the subsystems requiring it and
      at the same time enforcing the dependencies correctly.

      ARM: 8508/2: videobuf2-dc: Let drivers specify DMA attrs · ccc66e73
      Tomasz Figa authored
      DMA allocations might be subject to certain requirements specific to the
      hardware using the buffers, such as availability of kernel mapping (for
      contents fix-ups in the driver). The only entity that knows them is the
      driver, so it must share this knowledge with vb2-dc.
      This patch extends the alloc_ctx initialization interface to let the
      driver specify DMA attrs, which are then stored inside the allocation
      context and will be used for all allocations with that context.
      As a side effect, all dma_*_coherent() calls are turned into
      dma_*_attrs() calls, because the attributes need to be carried over
      through all DMA operations.

      ARM: 8507/1: dma-mapping: Use DMA_ATTR_ALLOC_SINGLE_PAGES hint to optimize alloc · 14d3ae2e
      Doug Anderson authored
      If we know that TLB efficiency will not be an issue when memory is
      accessed then it's not terribly important to allocate big chunks of
      memory.  The whole point of allocating the big chunks was that it would
      make TLB usage efficient.
      As Marek Szyprowski indicated:
          Please note that mapping memory with larger pages significantly
          improves performance, especially when IOMMU has a little TLB
          cache. This can be easily observed when multimedia devices do
          processing of RGB data with 90/270 degree rotation
      Image rotation is distinctly an operation that needs to bounce around
      through memory, so it makes sense that TLB efficiency is important
      Video decoding, on the other hand, is a fairly sequential operation.
      During video decoding it's not expected that we'll be jumping all over
      memory.  Decoding video is also pretty heavy and the TLB misses aren't a
      huge deal.  Presumably most HW video acceleration users of dma-mapping
      will not care about huge pages and will set DMA_ATTR_ALLOC_SINGLE_PAGES.
      Allocating big chunks of memory is quite expensive, especially if we're
      doing it repeadly and memory is full.  In one (out of tree) usage model
      it is common that arm_iommu_alloc_attrs() is called 16 times in a row,
      each one trying to allocate 4 MB of memory.  This is called whenever the
      system encounters a new video, which could easily happen while the
      memory system is stressed out.  In fact, on certain social media
      websites that auto-play video and have infinite scrolling, it's quite
      common to see not just one of these 16x4MB allocations but 2 or 3 right
      after another.  Asking the system even to do a small amount of extra
      work to give us big chunks in this case is just not a good use of time.
      Allocating big chunks of memory is also expensive indirectly.  Even if
      we ask the system not to do ANY extra work to allocate _our_ memory,
      we're still potentially eating up all big chunks in the system.
      Presumably there are other users in the system that aren't quite as
      flexible and that actually need these big chunks.  By eating all the big
      chunks we're causing extra work for the rest of the system.  We also may
      start making other memory allocations fail.  While the system may be
      robust to such failures (as is the case with dwc2 USB trying to allocate
      buffers for Ethernet data and with WiFi trying to allocate buffers for
      WiFi data), it is yet another big performance hit.

      ARM: 8506/1: common: DMA-mapping: add DMA_ATTR_ALLOC_SINGLE_PAGES attribute · df05c6f6
      Doug Anderson authored
      This patch adds the DMA_ATTR_ALLOC_SINGLE_PAGES attribute to the
      DMA-mapping subsystem.
      This attribute can be used as a hint to the DMA-mapping subsystem that
      it's likely not worth it to try to allocate large pages behind the
      scenes.  Large pages are likely to make an IOMMU TLB work more
      efficiently but may not be worth it.  See the Documentation contained in
      this patch for more details about this attribute and when to use it.
      Note that the name of the hint (DMA_ATTR_ALLOC_SINGLE_PAGES) is loosely
      based on the name MADV_NOHUGEPAGE.  Just as there is MADV_NOHUGEPAGE
      vs. MADV_HUGEPAGE we could also add an "opposite" attribute to
      DMA_ATTR_ALLOC_SINGLE_PAGES.  Without having the "opposite" attribute
      the lack of DMA_ATTR_ALLOC_SINGLE_PAGES means "use your best judgement
      about whether to use small pages or large pages".

      ARM: 8505/1: dma-mapping: Optimize allocation · 33298ef6
      Doug Anderson authored
      The __iommu_alloc_buffer() is expected to be called to allocate pretty
      sizeable buffers.  Upon simple tests of video I saw it trying to
      allocate 4,194,304 bytes.  The function tries to allocate large chunks
      in order to optimize IOMMU TLB usage.
      The current function is very, very slow.
      One problem is the way it keeps trying and trying to allocate big
      chunks.  Imagine a very fragmented memory that has 4M free but no
      contiguous pages at all.  Further imagine allocating 4M (1024 pages).
      We'll do the following memory allocations:
      - For page 1:
        - Try to allocate order 10 (no retry)
        - Try to allocate order 9 (no retry)
        - ...
        - Try to allocate order 0 (with retry, but not needed)
      - For page 2:
        - Try to allocate order 9 (no retry)
        - Try to allocate order 8 (no retry)
        - ...
        - Try to allocate order 0 (with retry, but not needed)
      - ...
      - ...
      Total number of calls to alloc() calls for this case is:
        sum(int(math.log(i, 2)) + 1 for i in range(1, 1025))
        => 9228
      The above is obviously worse case, but given how slow alloc can be we
      really want to try to avoid even somewhat bad cases.  I timed the old
      code with a device under memory pressure and it wasn't hard to see it
      take more than 120 seconds to allocate 4 megs of memory! (NOTE: testing
      was done on kernel 3.14, so possibly mainline would behave
      A second problem is that allocating big chunks under memory pressure
      when we don't need them is just not a great idea anyway unless we really
      need them.  We can make due pretty well with smaller chunks so it's
      probably wise to leave bigger chunks for other users once memory
      pressure is on.
      Let's adjust the allocation like this:
      1. If a big chunk fails, stop trying to hard and bump down to lower
         order allocations.
      2. Don't try useless orders.  The whole point of big chunks is to
         optimize the TLB and it can really only make use of 2M, 1M, 64K and
         4K sizes.
      We'll still tend to eat up a bunch of big chunks, but that might be the
      right answer for some users.  A future patch could possibly add a new
      DMA_ATTR that would let the caller decide that TLB optimization isn't
      important and that we should use smaller chunks.  Presumably this would
      be a sane strategy for some callers.

      ARM: 8504/1: __arch_xprod_64(): small optimization · 73e592f3
      Nicolas Pitre authored
      The tmp variable is used twice: first to pose as a register containing
      a value of zero, and then to provide a temporary register that initially
      is zero and get added some value. But somehow gcc decides to split those
      two usages in different registers.
      Example code:
      u64 div64const1000(u64 x)
      	u32 y = 1000;
      	do_div(x, y);
      	return x;

      	mov	r7, r1

      	mov	r1, lr

      Here the two instances of 'tmp' are assigned to r1 and lr.
      To avoid that, let's mark the first 'tmp' usage in __arch_xprod_64()

      create a dependency for the second usage with the effect of enforcing

      This time 'tmp' is assigned to r3 and used throughout. However, by being
      assigned to r3, that blocks usage of the r2-r3 double register slot for
      64-bit values, forcing more registers to be spilled on the stack. Let's
      try to help it by forcing 'tmp' to the caller-saved ip register.

      We could make the code marginally smaller yet by forcing 'tmp' to lr
      instead, but that would have a negative inpact on branch prediction for
      which "bx lr" is optimal.

      ARM: 8501/1: mm: flip priority of CONFIG_DEBUG_RODATA · 25362dc4
      Kees Cook authored
      The use of CONFIG_DEBUG_RODATA is generally seen as an essential part of
      kernel self-protection:
      Additionally, its name has grown to mean things beyond just rodata. To
      get ARM closer to this, we ought to rearrange the names of the configs
      that control how the kernel protects its memory. What was called
      CONFIG_ARM_KERNMEM_PERMS is realy doing the work that other architectures
      This redefines CONFIG_DEBUG_RODATA to actually do the bulk of the
      ROing (and NXing). In the place of the old CONFIG_DEBUG_RODATA, use
      CONFIG_DEBUG_ALIGN_RODATA, since that's what the option does: adds
      section alignment for making rodata explicitly NX, as arm does not split
      the page tables like arm64 does without _ALIGN_RODATA.
      Also adds human readable names to the sections so I could more easily
      debug my typos, and makes CONFIG_DEBUG_RODATA default "y" for CPU_V7.
      Results in /sys/kernel/debug/kernel_page_tables for each config state:
       # CONFIG_DEBUG_RODATA is not set
       # CONFIG_DEBUG_ALIGN_RODATA is not set

      ARM: use virt_to_idmap() for soft_restart() · 4138323e
      Russell King authored
      Code run via soft_restart() is run with the MMU disabled, so we need to
      pass the identity map physical address rather than the address obtained
      from virt_to_phys().  Therefore, replace virt_to_phys() with
      virt_to_idmap() for all callers of soft_restart().

      ARM: make virt_to_idmap() return unsigned long · 28410293
      Russell King authored
      Make virt_to_idmap() return an unsigned long rather than phys_addr_t.
      Returning phys_addr_t here makes no sense, because the definition of
      virt_to_idmap() is that it shall return a physical address which maps
      identically with the virtual address.  Since virtual addresses are
      limited to 32-bit, identity mapped physical addresses are as well.
      Almost all users already had an implicit narrowing cast to unsigned long
      so let's make this official and part of this interface.

      vmstat: Remove BUG_ON from vmstat_update · 587198ba
      Christoph Lameter authored
      If we detect that there is nothing to do just set the flag and do not
      check if it was already set before.  Races really do not matter.  If the
      flag is set by any code then the shepherd will start dealing with the
      situation and reenable the vmstat workers when necessary again.
      Since commit 0eb77e98
       ("vmstat: make vmstat_updater deferrable again
      and shut down on idle") quiet_vmstat might update cpu_stat_off and mark
      a particular cpu to be handled by vmstat_shepherd.  This might trigger a
      VM_BUG_ON in vmstat_update because the work item might have been
      sleeping during the idle period and see the cpu_stat_off updated after
      the wake up.  The VM_BUG_ON is therefore misleading and no more
      appropriate.  Moreover it doesn't really suite any protection from real
      bugs because vmstat_shepherd will simply reschedule the vmstat_work
      anytime it sees a particular cpu set or vmstat_update would do the same
      from the worker context directly.  Even when the two would race the
      result wouldn't be incorrect as the counters update is fully idempotent.
