      "param->u.wpa_associate.wpa_ie_len" comes from the user.  We should
      check it so that the copy_from_user() doesn't overflow the buffer.
      Also further down in the function, we assume that if
      "param->u.wpa_associate.wpa_ie_len" is set then "abyWPAIE[0]" is
      initialized.  To make that work, I changed the test here to say that if
      "wpa_ie_len" is set then "wpa_ie" has to be a valid pointer or we return
      Oddly, we only use the first element of the abyWPAIE[] array.  So I
      suspect there may be some other issues in this function.

      This reverts commit 96d592ed
      The netfilter hook seems to be misused and may leak skbs in situations
      when NF_HOOK returns NF_STOLEN. It may not filter everything as
      expected. Also the ethernet bridge tables are not yet capable to
      understand batman-adv packet correctly.
      It was only added for testing purposes and can be removed again.

      USB: serial/mos*: prevent reading uninitialized stack memory · a0846f18
      Dan Rosenberg authored
      The TIOCGICOUNT device ioctl in both mos7720.c and mos7840.c allows
      unprivileged users to read uninitialized stack memory, because the
      "reserved" member of the serial_icounter_struct struct declared on the
      stack is not altered or zeroed before being copied back to the user.
      This patch takes care of it.

      USB: otg: twl4030: fix phy initialization(v1) · fc8f2a76
      Ming Lei authored
      Commit 461c3177
      (into 2.6.36-v3)
      is put forward to power down phy if no usb cable is connected,
      but does introduce the two issues below:
      1), phy is not into work state if usb cable is connected
      with PC during poweron, so musb device mode is not usable
      in such case, follows the reasons:
      	-twl4030_phy_resume is not called, so
      		regulators are not enabled
      		i2c access are not enabled
      		usb mode not configurated
      2), The kernel warings[1] of regulators 'unbalanced disables'
      is caused if poweron without usb cable connected
      with PC or b-device.
      This patch fixes the two issues above:
      	-power down phy only if no usb cable is connected with PC
      and b-device
      	-do phy initialization(via __twl4030_phy_resume) if usb cable
      is connected with PC(vbus event) or another b-device(ID event) in
      This patch also doesn't put VUSB3V1 LDO into active mode in
      twl4030_usb_ldo_init until VBUS/ID change detected, so we can
      save more power consumption than before.
      This patch is verified OK on Beagle board either connected with
      usb cable or not when poweron.
      [1]. warnings of 'unbalanced disables' of regulators.

      seq_files use the private_data field of a file struct for storing a seq_file structure,
      data should be stored in seq_file's own private field (e.g. file->private_data->private)
      Otherwise seq_release() will free the private data when the file is closed.

      mm: further fix swapin race condition · 31c4a3d3
      Hugh Dickins authored
      Commit 4969c119
       ("mm: fix swapin race condition") is now agreed to
      be incomplete.  There's a race, not very much less likely than the
      original race envisaged, in which it is further necessary to check that
      the swapcache page's swap has not changed.
      Here's the reasoning: cast in terms of reuse_swap_page(), but probably
      could be reformulated to rely on try_to_free_swap() instead, or on
      A, faults into do_swap_page(): does page1 = lookup_swap_cache(swap1) and
      comes through the lock_page(page1).
      B, a racing thread of the same process, faults on the same address: does
      page1 = lookup_swap_cache(swap1) and now waits in lock_page(page1), but
      for whatever reason is unlucky not to get the lock any time soon.
      A carries on through do_swap_page(), a write fault, but cannot reuse the
      swap page1 (another reference to swap1).  Unlocks the page1 (but B
      doesn't get it yet), does COW in do_wp_page(), page2 now in that pte.
      C, perhaps the parent of A+B, comes in and write faults the same swap
      page1 into its mm, reuse_swap_page() succeeds this time, swap1 is freed.
      kswapd comes in after some time (B still unlucky) and swaps out some
      pages from A+B and C: it allocates the original swap1 to page2 in A+B,
      and some other swap2 to the original page1 now in C.  But does not
      immediately free page1 (actually it couldn't: B holds a reference),
      leaving it in swap cache for now.
      B at last gets the lock on page1, hooray! Is PageSwapCache(page1)? Yes.
      Is pte_same(*page_table, orig_pte)? Yes, because page2 has now been
      given the swap1 which page1 used to have.  So B proceeds to insert page1
      into A+B's page_table, though its content now belongs to C, quite
      different from what A wrote there.
      B ought to have checked that page1's swap was still swap1.

      alpha: deal with multiple simultaneously pending signals · 494486a1
      Al Viro authored
      Unlike the other targets, alpha sets _one_ sigframe and
      buggers off until the next syscall/interrupt, even if
      more signals are pending.  It leads to quite a few unpleasant
      inconsistencies, starting with SIGSEGV potentially arriving
      not where it should and including e.g. mess with sigsuspend();
      consider two pending signals blocked until sigsuspend()
      unblocks them.  We pick the first one; then, if we are hit
      by interrupt while in the handler, we process the second one
      as well.  If we are not, and if no syscalls had been made,
      we get out of the first handler and leave the second signal
      pending; normally sigreturn() would've picked it anyway, but
      here it starts with restoring the original mask and voila -
      the second signal is blocked again.  On everything else we
      get both delivered consistently.
      It's actually easy to fix; the only thing to watch out for
      is prevention of double syscall restart.  Fortunately, the
      idea I've nicked from arm fix by rmk works just fine...
      Testcase demonstrating the behaviour in question; on alpha
      we get one or both flags set (usually one), on everything
      else both are always set.
      	#include <signal.h>
      	#include <stdio.h>
      	int had1, had2;
      	void f1(int sig) { had1 = 1; }
      	void f2(int sig) { had2 = 1; }
      		sigset_t set1, set2;
      		sigaddset(&set2, 1);
      		sigaddset(&set2, 2);
      		signal(1, f1);
      		signal(2, f2);
      		sigprocmask(SIG_SETMASK, &set2, NULL);
      		printf("had1:%d had2:%d\n", had1, had2);

      alpha: fix a 14 years old bug in sigreturn tracing · 53293638
      Al Viro authored
      The way sigreturn() is implemented on alpha breaks PTRACE_SYSCALL,
      all way back to 1.3.95 when alpha has grown PTRACE_SYSCALL support.
      What happens is direct return to ret_from_syscall, in order to bypass
      mangling of a3 (error indicator) and prevent other mutilations of
      registers (e.g. by syscall restart).  That's fine, but... the entire
      TIF_SYSCALL_TRACE codepath is kept separate on alpha and post-syscall
      stopping/notifying the tracer is after the syscall.  And the normal
      path we are forcibly switching to doesn't have it.
      So we end up with *one* stop in traced sigreturn() vs. two in other
      syscalls.  And yes, strace is visibly broken by that; try to strace
      the following
      	#include <signal.h>
      	#include <stdio.h>
      	void f(int sig) {}
      		signal(SIGHUP, f);
      		write(1, "eeeek\n", 6);
      and watch the show.  The
      	close(1)                                = 405
      in the end of strace output is coming from return value of write() (6 ==
      __NR_close on alpha) and syscall number of exit_group() (__NR_exit_group ==
      405 there).
      The fix is fairly simple - the only thing we end up missing is the call
      of syscall_trace() and we can tell whether we'd been called from the
      SYSCALL_TRACE path by checking ra value.  Since we are setting the
      switch_stack up (that's what sys_sigreturn() does), we have the right
      environment for calling syscall_trace() - just before we call
      undo_switch_stack() and return.  Since undo_switch_stack() will overwrite
      s0 anyway, we can use it to store the result of "has it been called from
      SYSCALL_TRACE path?" check.  The same thing applies in rt_sigreturn().

      alpha: unb0rk sigsuspend() and rt_sigsuspend() · 392fb6e3
      Al Viro authored
      Old code used to set regs->r0 and regs->r19 to force the right
      return value.  Leaving that after switch to ERESTARTNOHAND
      was a Bad Idea(tm), since now that screws the restart - if we
      hit the case when get_signal_to_deliver() returns 0, we will
      step back to syscall insn, with v0 set to EINTR and a3 to 1.
      The latter won't matter, since EINTR is 4, aka __NR_write.
      	#include <signal.h>
      	#define _GNU_SOURCE
      	#include <unistd.h>
      	#include <sys/syscall.h>
      		sigset_t mask;
      		sigaddset(&mask, SIGCONT);
      		sigprocmask(SIG_SETMASK, &mask, NULL);
      		kill(0, SIGCONT);
      		syscall(__NR_sigsuspend, 1, "b0rken\n", 7);
      results on alpha in immediate message to stdout...
      Fix is obvious; moreover, since we don't need regs anymore, we can
      switch to normal prototypes for these guys and lose the wrappers.
      Even better, rt_sigsuspend() is identical to generic version in
      kernel/signal.c now.

      alpha: Shift perf event pending work earlier in timer interrupt · bdc8b891
      Michael Cree authored
      Pending work from the performance event subsystem is executed in
      the timer interrupt.  This patch shifts the call to
      perf_event_do_pending() before the call to update_process_times()
      as the latter may call back into the perf event subsystem and it
      is prudent to have the pending work executed first.
