      arm64: Add COMPAT_HWCAP_LPAE · 7d57511d
      Catalin Marinas authored
      Commit a469abd0
       (ARM: elf: add new hwcap for identifying atomic
      ldrd/strd instructions) introduces HWCAP_ELF for 32-bit ARM
      applications. As LPAE is always present on arm64, report the
      corresponding compat HWCAP to user space.

      mmu_gather: move minimal range calculations into generic code · fb7332a9
      Will Deacon authored
      On architectures with hardware broadcasting of TLB invalidation messages
      , it makes sense to reduce the range of the mmu_gather structure when
      unmapping page ranges based on the dirty address information passed to
      arm64 already does this by directly manipulating the start/end fields
      of the gather structure, but this confuses the generic code which
      does not expect these fields to change and can end up calculating
      invalid, negative ranges when forcing a flush in zap_pte_range.
      This patch moves the minimal range calculation out of the arm64 code
      and into the generic implementation, simplifying zap_pte_range in the
      process (which no longer needs to care about start/end, since they will
      point to the appropriate ranges already). With the range being tracked
      by core code, the need_flush flag is dropped in favour of checking that
      the end of the range has actually been set.

      arm64: entry: use ldp/stp instead of push/pop when saving/restoring regs · 63648dd2
      Will Deacon authored
      The push/pop instructions can be suboptimal when saving/restoring large
      amounts of data to/from the stack, for example on entry/exit from the
      kernel. This is because:
        (1) They act on descending addresses (i.e. the newly decremented sp),
            which may defeat some hardware prefetchers
        (2) They introduce an implicit dependency between each instruction, as
            the sp has to be updated in order to resolve the address of the
            next access.
      This patch removes the push/pop instructions from our kernel entry/exit
      macros in favour of ldp/stp plus offset.

      arm64: entry: avoid writing lr explicitly for constructing return paths · d54e81f9
      Will Deacon authored
      Using an explicit adr instruction to set the link register to point at
      ret_fast_syscall/ret_to_user can defeat branch and return stack predictors.
      Instead, use the standard calling instructions (bl, blr) and have an
      unconditional branch as the following instruction.

      arm64: Fix up /proc/cpuinfo · 44b82b77
      Mark Rutland authored
      Commit d7a49086 (arm64: cpuinfo: print info for all CPUs)
      attempted to clean up /proc/cpuinfo, but due to concerns regarding
      further changes was reverted in commit 5e39977e
       (Revert "arm64:
      cpuinfo: print info for all CPUs").
      There are two major issues with the arm64 /proc/cpuinfo format
      * The "Features" line describes (only) the 64-bit hwcaps, which is
        problematic for some 32-bit applications which attempt to parse it. As
        the same names are used for analogous ISA features (e.g. aes) despite
        these generally being architecturally unrelated, it is not possible to
        simply append the 64-bit and 32-bit hwcaps in a manner that might not
        be misleading to some applications.
        Various potential solutions have appeared in vendor kernels. Typically
        the format of the Features line varies depending on whether the task
        is 32-bit.
      * Information is only printed regarding a single CPU. This does not
        match the ARM format, and does not provide sufficient information in
        big.LITTLE systems where CPUs are heterogeneous. The CPU information
        printed is queried from the current CPU's registers, which is racy
        w.r.t. cross-cpu migration.
      This patch attempts to solve these issues. The following changes are
      * When a task with a LINUX32 personality attempts to read /proc/cpuinfo,
        the "Features" line contains the decoded 32-bit hwcaps, as with the
        arm port. Otherwise, the decoded 64-bit hwcaps are shown. This aligns
        with the behaviour of COMPAT_UTS_MACHINE and COMPAT_ELF_PLATFORM. In
        the absense of compat support, the Features line is empty.
        The set of hwcaps injected into a task's auxval are unaffected.
      * Properties are printed per-cpu, as with the ARM port. The per-cpu
        information is queried from pre-recorded cpu information (as used by
        the sanity checks).
      * As with the previous attempt at fixing up /proc/cpuinfo, the hardware
        field is removed. The only users so far are 32-bit applications tied
        to particular boards, so no portable applications should be affected,
        and this should prevent future tying to particular boards.
      The following differences remain:
      * No model_name is printed, as this cannot be queried from the hardware
        and cannot be provided in a stable fashion. Use of the CPU
        {implementor,variant,part,revision} fields is sufficient to identify a
        CPU and is portable across arm and arm64.
      * The following system-wide properties are not provided, as they are not
        possible to provide generally. Programs relying on these are already
        tied to particular (32-bit only) boards:
        - Hardware
        - Revision
        - Serial
      No software has yet been identified for which these remaining
      differences are problematic.
