      uprobes, x86: Fix _TIF_UPROBE vs _TIF_NOTIFY_RESUME · 82975bc6
      Andy Lutomirski authored
      x86 call do_notify_resume on paranoid returns if TIF_UPROBE is set but
      not on non-paranoid returns.  I suspect that this is a mistake and that
      the code only works because int3 is paranoid.
      Setting _TIF_NOTIFY_RESUME in the uprobe code was probably a workaround
      for the x86 bug.  With that bug fixed, we can remove _TIF_NOTIFY_RESUME
      from the uprobes code.

      sched: Provide update_curr callbacks for stop/idle scheduling classes · 90e362f4
      Thomas Gleixner authored
      Chris bisected a NULL pointer deference in task_sched_runtime() to
      commit 6e998916 'sched/cputime: Fix clock_nanosleep()/clock_gettime()
      Chris observed crashes in atop or other /proc walking programs when he
      started fork bombs on his machine.  He assumed that this is a new exit
      race, but that does not make any sense when looking at that commit.
      What's interesting is that, the commit provides update_curr callbacks
      for all scheduling classes except stop_task and idle_task.
      While nothing can ever hit that via the clock_nanosleep() and
      clock_gettime() interfaces, which have been the target of the commit in
      question, the author obviously forgot that there are other code paths
      which invoke task_sched_runtime()
              if (task_current(rq, p) && task_on_rq_queued(p)) {
      If the stats are read for a stomp machine task, aka 'migration/N' and
      that task is current on its cpu, this will happily call the NULL pointer
      of stop_task->update_curr.  Ooops.
      Chris observation that this happens faster when he runs the fork bomb
      makes sense as the fork bomb will kick migration threads more often so
      the probability to hit the issue will increase.
      Add the missing update_curr callbacks to the scheduler classes stop_task
      and idle_task.  While idle tasks cannot be monitored via /proc we have
      other means to hit the idle case.

      Merge x86-64 iret fixes from Andy Lutomirski:
       "This addresses the following issues:
         - an unrecoverable double-fault triggerable with modify_ldt.
         - invalid stack usage in espfix64 failed IRET recovery from IST
         - invalid stack usage in non-espfix64 failed IRET recovery from IST
        It also makes a good but IMO scary change: non-espfix64 failed IRET
        will now report the correct error.  Hopefully nothing depended on the
        old incorrect behavior, but maybe Wine will get confused in some
        obscure corner case"

      x86_64, traps: Rework bad_iret · b645af2d
      Andy Lutomirski authored
      It's possible for iretq to userspace to fail.  This can happen because
      of a bad CS, SS, or RIP.
      Historically, we've handled it by fixing up an exception from iretq to
      land at bad_iret, which pretends that the failed iret frame was really
      the hardware part of #GP(0) from userspace.  To make this work, there's
      an extra fixup to fudge the gs base into a usable state.
      This is suboptimal because it loses the original exception.  It's also
      buggy because there's no guarantee that we were on the kernel stack to
      begin with.  For example, if the failing iret happened on return from an
      NMI, then we'll end up executing general_protection on the NMI stack.
      This is bad for several reasons, the most immediate of which is that
      general_protection, as a non-paranoid idtentry, will try to deliver
      signals and/or schedule from the wrong stack.
      This patch throws out bad_iret entirely.  As a replacement, it augments
      the existing swapgs fudge into a full-blown iret fixup, mostly written
      in C.  It's should be clearer and more correct.

      x86_64, traps: Stop using IST for #SS · 6f442be2
      Andy Lutomirski authored
      On a 32-bit kernel, this has no effect, since there are no IST stacks.
      On a 64-bit kernel, #SS can only happen in user code, on a failed iret
      to user space, a canonical violation on access via RSP or RBP, or a
      genuine stack segment violation in 32-bit kernel code.  The first two
      cases don't need IST, and the latter two cases are unlikely fatal bugs,
      and promoting them to double faults would be fine.
      This fixes a bug in which the espfix64 code mishandles a stack segment
      This saves 4k of memory per CPU and a tiny bit of code.

      There's nothing special enough about the espfix64 double fault fixup to
      justify writing it in assembly.  Move it to C.
      This also fixes a bug: if the double fault came from an IST stack, the
      old asm code would return to a partially uninitialized stack frame.

      percpu-ref: fix DEAD flag contamination of percpu pointer · 4aab3b5b
      Tejun Heo authored
      While decoupling ATOMIC and DEAD flags, f47ad457 ("percpu_ref:
      decouple switching to percpu mode and reinit") updated
      __ref_is_percpu() so that it only tests ATOMIC flag to determine
      whether the ref is in percpu mode or not; however, while DEAD implies
      ATOMIC, the two flags are set separately during percpu_ref_kill() and
      if __ref_is_percpu() races percpu_ref_kill(), it may see DEAD w/o
      ATOMIC.  Because __ref_is_percpu() returns @ref->percpu_count_ptr
      value verbatim as the percpu pointer after testing ATOMIC, the pointer
      may now be contaminated with the DEAD flag.
      This can be fixed by clearing the flag bits before returning the
      pointer which was the fix proposed by Shaohua; however, as DEAD
      implies ATOMIC, we can just test for both flags at once and avoid the
      explicit masking.
      Update __ref_is_percpu() so that it tests that both ATOMIC and DEAD
      are clear before returning @ref->percpu_count_ptr as the percpu

      tcp: Restore RFC5961-compliant behavior for SYN packets · 0c228e83
      Calvin Owens authored
      Commit c3ae62af ("tcp: should drop incoming frames without ACK
      flag set") was created to mitigate a security vulnerability in which a
      local attacker is able to inject data into locally-opened sockets by
      using TCP protocol statistics in procfs to quickly find the correct
      sequence number.
      This broke the RFC5961 requirement to send a challenge ACK in response
      to spurious RST packets, which was subsequently fixed by commit
      7b514a88 ("tcp: accept RST without ACK flag").
      Unfortunately, the RFC5961 requirement that spurious SYN packets be
      handled in a similar manner remains broken.
      RFC5961 section 4 states that:
         ... the handling of the SYN in the synchronized state SHOULD be
         performed as follows:
         1) If the SYN bit is set, irrespective of the sequence number, TCP
            MUST send an ACK (also referred to as challenge ACK) to the remote
            After sending the acknowledgment, TCP MUST drop the unacceptable
            segment and stop processing further.
         By sending an ACK, the remote peer is challenged to confirm the loss
         of the previous connection and the request to start a new connection.
         A legitimate peer, after restart, would not have a TCB in the
         synchronized state.  Thus, when the ACK arrives, the peer should send
         a RST segment back with the sequence number derived from the ACK
         field that caused the RST.
         This RST will confirm that the remote peer has indeed closed the
         previous connection.  Upon receipt of a valid RST, the local TCP
         endpoint MUST terminate its connection.  The local TCP endpoint
         should then rely on SYN retransmission from the remote end to
         re-establish the connection.
      This patch lets SYN packets through the discard added in c3ae62af,
      so that spurious SYN packets are properly dealt with as per the RFC.
      The challenge ACK is sent unconditionally and is rate-limited, so the
      original vulnerability is not reintroduced by this patch.

      Eric Dumazet authored
      Not sure what I was thinking, but doing anything after
      releasing a refcount is suicidal or/and embarrassing.
      By the time we set skb->fclone to SKB_FCLONE_FREE, another cpu
      could have released last reference and freed whole skb.
      We potentially corrupt memory or trap if CONFIG_DEBUG_PAGEALLOC is set.
