      aio: fix the "too late munmap()" race · c7b28555
      Al Viro authored
      
      
      Current code has put_ioctx() called asynchronously from aio_fput_routine();
      that's done *after* we have killed the request that used to pin ioctx,
      so there's nothing to stop io_destroy() waiting in wait_for_all_aios()
      from progressing.  As the result, we can end up with async call of
      put_ioctx() being the last one and possibly happening during exit_mmap()
      or elf_core_dump(), neither of which expects stray munmap() being done
      to them...
      
      We do need to prevent _freeing_ ioctx until aio_fput_routine() is done
      with that, but that's all we care about - neither io_destroy() nor
      exit_aio() will progress past wait_for_all_aios() until aio_fput_routine()
      does really_put_req(), so the ioctx teardown won't be done until then
      and we don't care about the contents of ioctx past that point.
      
      Since actual freeing of these suckers is RCU-delayed, we don't need to
      bump ioctx refcount when request goes into list for async removal.
      All we need is rcu_read_lock held just over the ->ctx_lock-protected
      area in aio_fput_routine().

      aio: fix io_setup/io_destroy race · 86b62a2c
      Al Viro authored
      
      
      Have ioctx_alloc() return an extra reference, so that caller would drop it
      on success and not bother with re-grabbing it on failure exit.  The current
      code is obviously broken - io_destroy() from another thread that managed
      to guess the address io_setup() would've returned would free ioctx right
      under us; gets especially interesting if aio_context_t * we pass to
      io_setup() points to PROT_READ mapping, so put_user() fails and we end
      up doing io_destroy() on kioctx another thread has just got freed...

      memcg: revert fix to mapcount check for this release · be22aece
      Hugh Dickins authored
      Respectfully revert commit e6ca7b89
      
       "memcg: fix mapcount check
      in move charge code for anonymous page" for the 3.3 release, so that
      it behaves exactly like releases 2.6.35 through 3.2 in this respect.
      
      Horiguchi-san's commit is correct in itself, 1 makes much more sense
      than 2 in that check; but it does not go far enough - swapcount
      should be considered too - if we really want such a check at all.
      
      We appear to have reached agreement now, and expect that 3.4 will
      remove the mapcount check, but had better not make 3.3 different.

      x86: Derandom delay_tsc for 64 bit · a7f4255f
      Thomas Gleixner authored
      Commit f0fbf0ab
      
       ("x86: integrate delay functions") converted
      delay_tsc() into a random delay generator for 64 bit.  The reason is
      that it merged the mostly identical versions of delay_32.c and
      delay_64.c.  Though the subtle difference of the result was:
      
       static void delay_tsc(unsigned long loops)
       {
      -	unsigned bclock, now;
      +	unsigned long bclock, now;
      
      Now the function uses rdtscl() which returns the lower 32bit of the
      TSC. On 32bit that's not problematic as unsigned long is 32bit. On 64
      bit this fails when the lower 32bit are close to wrap around when
      bclock is read, because the following check
      
             if ((now - bclock) >= loops)
             	  	break;
      
      evaluated to true on 64bit for e.g. bclock = 0xffffffff and now = 0
      because the unsigned long (now - bclock) of these values results in
      0xffffffff00000001 which is definitely larger than the loops
      value. That explains Tvortkos observation:
      
      "Because I am seeing udelay(500) (_occasionally_) being short, and
       that by delaying for some duration between 0us (yep) and 491us."
      
      Make those variables explicitely u32 again, so this works for both 32
      and 64 bit.
