      dm thin: fix unprotected use of prepared_discards list · c3a0ce2e
      Mike Snitzer authored
      Fix two places in commit 104655fd ("dm thin: support discards") that
      didn't use pool->lock to protect against concurrent changes to the
      prepared_discards list.
      Without this fix, thin_endio() can race with process_discard(), leading
      to concurrent list_add()s that result in the processes locking up with
      an error like the following:

      gpio: pch9: Use proper flow type handlers · df9541a6
      Thomas Gleixner authored
      Jean-Francois Dagenais reported:
       Configuring a gpio pin with the gpio-pch driver with
       "IRQF_TRIGGER_LOW | IRQF_ONESHOT" generates an interrupt storm for
       threaded ISR until the ISR thread actually gets to physically clear
       the interrupt on the triggering chip!! The immediate observable
       symptom is the high CPU usage for my ISR thread task and the
       interrupt count in /proc/interrupts incrementing radically.
      The driver is wrong in several ways:
      1) Using handle_simple_irq() does not provide proper flow control
         handling. In the case of oneshot threaded handlers for the
         demultiplexed interrupts this results in an interrupt storm because
         the simple handler does not deal with masking/unmasking.  Even
         without threaded oneshot handlers an interrupt storm for level type
         interrupts can easily be triggered when the interrupt is disabled
         and the interrupt line is activated from the device.
      2) Acknowlegding the demultiplexed interrupt before calling the
         handler is wrong for level type interrupts.
      3) The set_type function unconditionally enables the interrupt. It's
         supposed to set the type and nothing else. The unmasking is done by
         the core code.
      Move the acknowledge code into a separate function and add it to the
      demux irqchip callbacks.
      Remove the unconditional enabling from the set_type() callback and set
      the proper flow handlers depending on the selected type (level/edge).

      powerpc/irq: Fix another case of lazy IRQ state getting out of sync · 7c0482e3
      Benjamin Herrenschmidt authored
      So we have another case of paca->irq_happened getting out of
      sync with the HW irq state. This can happen when a perfmon
      interrupt occurs while soft disabled, as it will return to a
      soft disabled but hard enabled context while leaving a stale
      PACA_IRQ_HARD_DIS flag set.
      This patch fixes it, and also adds a test for the condition
      of those flags being out of sync in arch_local_irq_restore()
      when CONFIG_TRACE_IRQFLAGS is enabled.
      This helps catching those gremlins faster (and so far I
      can't seem see any anymore, so that's good news).

      bonding: don't increase rx_dropped after processing LACPDUs · 13a8e0c8

      Since commit 3aba891d, bonding processes LACP frames (802.3ad
      mode) with bond_handle_frame(). Currently a copy of the skb is
      made and the original is left to be processed by other
      rx_handlers and the rest of the network stack by returning
      RX_HANDLER_ANOTHER.  As there is no protocol handler for
      PKT_TYPE_LACPDU, the frame is dropped and dev->rx_dropped
      Fix this by making bond_handle_frame() return RX_HANDLER_CONSUMED
      if bonding has processed the LACP frame.

      connector/userns: replace netlink uses of cap_raised() with capable() · 38bf1953
      Eric W. Biederman authored
      In 2009 Philip Reiser notied that a few users of netlink connector
      interface needed a capability check and added the idiom
      cap_raised(nsp->eff_cap, CAP_SYS_ADMIN) to a few of them, on the premise
      that netlink was asynchronous.
      In 2011 Patrick McHardy noticed we were being silly because netlink is
      synchronous and removed eff_cap from the netlink_skb_params and changed
      the idiom to cap_raised(current_cap(), CAP_SYS_ADMIN).
      Looking at those spots with a fresh eye we should be calling
      capable(CAP_SYS_ADMIN).  The only reason I can see for not calling capable
      is that it once appeared we were not in the same task as the caller which
      would have made calling capable() impossible.
      In the initial user_namespace the only difference between between
      cap_raised(current_cap(), CAP_SYS_ADMIN) and capable(CAP_SYS_ADMIN) are a
      few sanity checks and the fact that capable(CAP_SYS_ADMIN) sets
      PF_SUPERPRIV if we use the capability.
      Since we are going to be using root privilege setting PF_SUPERPRIV seems
      the right thing to do.
      The motivation for this that patch is that in a child user namespace
      cap_raised(current_cap(),...) tests your capabilities with respect to that
      child user namespace not capabilities in the initial user namespace and
      thus will allow processes that should be unprivielged to use the kernel
      services that are only protected with cap_raised(current_cap(),..).
      To fix possible user_namespace issues and to just clean up the code
      replace cap_raised(current_cap(), CAP_SYS_ADMIN) with

      ehea: fix losing of NEQ events when one event occurred early · 380ec964
      Thadeu Lima de Souza Cascardo authored
      The NEQ interrupt is only triggered when there was no previous pending
      interrupt. If we request irq handling after an interrupt has occurred,
      we will never get an interrupt until we call H_RESET_EVENTS.
      Events seem to be cleared when we first register the NEQ. So, when we
      requested irq handling right after registering it, a possible race with
      an interrupt was much less likely. Now, there is a chance we may lose
      this race and never get any events.
      The fix here is to poll and acknowledge any events that might have
      happened right after registering the irq handler.
