      Pull x86 linker bug workarounds from Peter Anvin.
      GNU ld-[12] (*) has an unfortunate bug where it incorrectly
      turns certain relocation entries absolute.  Section-relative symbols
      that are part of otherwise empty sections are silently changed them to
      absolute.  We rely on section-relative symbols staying section-relative,
      and actually have several sections in the linker script solely for this
      See for example
      We could just black-list the buggy linker, but it appears that it got
      shipped in at least F17, and possibly other distros too, so it's sadly
      not some rare unusual case.
      This backports the workaround from the x86/trampoline branch, and as
      Peter says: "This is not a minimal fix, not at all, but it is a tested
      code base."

      memcg,thp: fix res_counter:96 regression · 62ade86a
      Hugh Dickins authored
      Occasionally, testing memcg's move_charge_at_immigrate on rc7 shows
      a flurry of hundreds of warnings at kernel/res_counter.c:96, where
      res_counter_uncharge_locked() does WARN_ON(counter->usage < val).
      The first trace of each flurry implicates __mem_cgroup_cancel_charge()
      of mc.precharge, and an audit of mc.precharge handling points to
      mem_cgroup_move_charge_pte_range()'s THP handling in commit 12724850
      ("memcg: avoid THP split in task migration").
      Checking !mc.precharge is good everywhere else, when a single page is to
      be charged; but here the "mc.precharge -= HPAGE_PMD_NR" likely to
      follow, is liable to result in underflow (a lot can change since the
      precharge was estimated).
      Simply check against HPAGE_PMD_NR: there's probably a better
      alternative, trying precharge for more, splitting if unsuccessful; but
      this one-liner is safer for now - no kernel/res_counter.c:96 warnings
      seen in 26 hours.

      Commit 41101809 ("fork: Provide weak arch_release_[task_struct|

        kernel/fork.c:127:51: error: static declaration of 'free_task_struct' follows non-static declaration

      does not define define __HAVE_ARCH_TASK_STRUCT_ALLOCATOR (i.e.  it just
      uses the generic ones) it shouldn't list these at all.

      fs, proc: fix ABBA deadlock in case of execution attempt of map_files/ entries · eb94cd96
      Cyrill Gorcunov authored
      map_files/ entries are never supposed to be executed, still curious
      minds might try to run them, which leads to the following deadlock
        [ INFO: possible circular locking dependency detected ]
        3.4.0-rc4-24406-g841e6a6 #121 Not tainted
        bash/1556 is trying to acquire lock:
         (&sb->s_type->i_mutex_key#8){+.+.+.}, at: do_lookup+0x267/0x2b1
        but task is already holding lock:
         (&sig->cred_guard_mutex){+.+.+.}, at: prepare_bprm_creds+0x2d/0x69
        which lock already depends on the new lock.
        the existing dependency chain (in reverse order) is:
        -> #1 (&sig->cred_guard_mutex){+.+.+.}:
        -> #0 (&sb->s_type->i_mutex_key#8){+.+.+.}:
      This is because prepare_bprm_creds grabs task->signal->cred_guard_mutex
      and when do_lookup happens we try to grab task->signal->cred_guard_mutex
      again in lock_trace.
      Fix it using plain ptrace_may_access() helper in proc_map_files_lookup()
      and in proc_map_files_readdir() instead of lock_trace(), the caller must
      be CAP_SYS_ADMIN granted anyway.

      ACPI / PCI / PM: Fix device PM regression related to D3hot/D3cold · 5c7dd710
      Rafael J. Wysocki authored
      Commit 1cc0c998 ("ACPI: Fix D3hot v D3cold confusion") introduced a
      bug in __acpi_bus_set_power() and changed the behavior of
      acpi_pci_set_power_state() in such a way that it generally doesn't work
      as expected if PCI_D3hot is passed to it as the second argument.
      First off, if ACPI_STATE_D3 (equal to ACPI_STATE_D3_COLD) is passed to
      __acpi_bus_set_power() and the explicit_set flag is set for the D3cold
      state, the function will try to execute AML method called "_PS4", which
      doesn't exist.
      Fix this by adding a check to ensure that the name of the AML method
      to execute for transitions to ACPI_STATE_D3_COLD is correct in
      __acpi_bus_set_power().  Also make sure that the explicit_set flag
      for ACPI_STATE_D3_COLD will be set if _PS3 is present and modify
      acpi_power_transition() to avoid accessing power resources for
      ACPI_STATE_D3_COLD, because they don't exist.
      Second, if PCI_D3hot is passed to acpi_pci_set_power_state() as the
      target state, the function will request a transition to
      ACPI_STATE_D3_HOT instead of ACPI_STATE_D3.  However,
      ACPI_STATE_D3_HOT is now only marked as supported if the _PR3 AML
      method is defined for the given device, which is rare.  This causes
      problems to happen on systems where devices were successfully put
      into ACPI D3 by pci_set_power_state(PCI_D3hot) which doesn't work
      now.  In particular, some unused graphics adapters are not turned
      off as a result.
      To fix this issue restore the old behavior of
      acpi_pci_set_power_state(), which is to request a transition to
      ACPI_STATE_D3 (equal to ACPI_STATE_D3_COLD) if either PCI_D3hot or
      PCI_D3cold is passed to it as the argument.
      This approach is not ideal, because generally power should not
      be removed from devices if PCI_D3hot is the target power state,
      but since this behavior is relied on, we have no choice but to
      restore it at the moment and spend more time on designing a
      better solution in the future.

      tcp: do_tcp_sendpages() must try to push data out on oom conditions · bad115cf
      Willy Tarreau authored
      Since recent changes on TCP splicing (starting with commits 2f533844
      "tcp: allow splice() to build full TSO packets" and 35f9c09f "tcp:
      tcp_sendpages() should call tcp_push() once"), I started seeing
      massive stalls when forwarding traffic between two sockets using
      splice() when pipe buffers were larger than socket buffers.
      Latest changes (net: netdev_alloc_skb() use build_skb()) made the
      problem even more apparent.
      The reason seems to be that if do_tcp_sendpages() fails on out of memory
      condition without being able to send at least one byte, tcp_push() is not
      called and the buffers cannot be flushed.
      After applying the attached patch, I cannot reproduce the stalls at all
      and the data rate it perfectly stable and steady under any condition
      which previously caused the problem to be permanent.
      The issue seems to have been there since before the kernel migrated to
      git, which makes me think that the stalls I occasionally experienced
      with tux during stress-tests years ago were probably related to the
      same issue.
      This issue was first encountered on 3.0.31 and 3.2.17, so please backport
      to -stable.

      This patch avoids using fd_dev->fd_dev_size for FILEIO devices with

      get the sector count directly from i_size_read() as recommended by hch.

       "One fixes a bug in the new raid10 resize code so is relevant to 3.4
