      pktcdvd: removing device does not remove its sysfs dir · ca0bf64d
      Thadeu Lima de Souza Cascardo authored
      This is the counterpart to cba76717
      ("pktcdvd: remove broken dev_t export of class devices").  Device is not
      registered using dev_t, so it should not be destroyed using device_destroy
      which looks up the device by dev_t.  This will fail and adding the device
      again will fail with the "duplicate name" error.  This is fixed using
      device_unregister instead of device_destroy.

      memory hotplug: fix a bug on /dev/mem for 64-bit kernels · ea085417
      Shaohui Zheng authored
      Newly added memory can not be accessed via /dev/mem, because we do not
      update the variables high_memory, max_pfn and max_low_pfn.
      Add a function update_end_of_memory_vars() to update these variables for
      64-bit kernels.

      imxfb: correct location of callbacks in suspend and resume · 1ec56203

      platform_set_drvdata(), so don't interpret the return value of
      platform_get_drvdata() as a pointer to struct imxfb_info.
      The original imxfb_info *fbi backlight_power was NULL but in imxfb_suspend
      it was 4 resulting in an oops as imxfb_suspend calls
      imxfb_disable_controller(fbi) which in turn has

      cgroups: fix to return errno in a failure path · 4528fd05
      Li Zefan authored
      In cgroup_create(), if alloc_css_id() returns failure, the errno is not
      propagated to userspace, so mkdir will fail silently.
      To trigger this bug, we mount blkio (or memory subsystem), and create more
      then 65534 cgroups.  (The number of cgroups is limited to 65535 if a
      subsystem has use_id == 1)
       # mount -t cgroup -o blkio xxx /mnt
       # for ((i = 0; i < 65534; i++)); do mkdir /mnt/$i; done
       # mkdir /mnt/65534
       (should return ENOSPC)

      markup_oops.pl: fix $func_offset error with x86_64 · ef2b9b05
      Hui Zhu authored
      When I use markup_oops.pl parse a x8664 oops, I got:
      objdump: --start-address: bad number: NaN
      No matching code found
      This is because:
      main::(./m.pl:228):	open(FILE, "objdump -dS --adjust-vma=$vmaoffset --start-address=$decodestart --stop-address=$decodestop $filename |") || die "Cannot start objdump";
        DB<3> p $decodestart
      This NaN is from:
      main::(./m.pl:176):	my $decodestart = Math::BigInt->from_hex("0x$target") - Math::BigInt->from_hex("0x$func_offset");
        DB<2> p $func_offset
      There is already a "0x" in $func_offset, another 0x makes it a NaN.
      The $func_offset is from line:
      	if ($line =~ /RIP: 0010:\[\<[0-9a-f]+\>\]  \[\<[0-9a-f]+\>\] ([a-zA-Z0-9\_]+)\+(0x[0-9a-f]+)\/0x[a-f0-9]/) {
      		$function = $1;
      		$func_offset = $2;
      I make a patch to change "(0x[0-9a-f]+)\/0x[a-f0-9]/)" to "0x([0-9a-f]+)\/0x[a-f0-9]/)".

      devmem: fix kmem write bug on memory holes · c85e9a97

      write_kmem() used to assume vwrite() always return the full buffer length.
      However now vwrite() could return 0 to indicate memory hole.  This

      Fix it to simply ignore the return value, hence the memory hole.

      mm: flush dcache before writing into page to avoid alias · 931e80e4
      anfei zhou authored
      The cache alias problem will happen if the changes of user shared mapping
      is not flushed before copying, then user and kernel mapping may be mapped
      into two different cache line, it is impossible to guarantee the coherence
      after iov_iter_copy_from_user_atomic.  So the right steps should be:
      	write to page;
      More precisely, we might create two new APIs flush_dcache_user_page and
      flush_dcache_kern_page to replace the two flush_dcache_page accordingly.
      Here is a snippet tested on omap2430 with VIPT cache, and I think it is
      not ARM-specific:
      	int val = 0x11111111;
      	fd = open("abc", O_RDWR);
      	addr = mmap(NULL, 4096, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE, MAP_SHARED, fd, 0);
      	*(addr+0) = 0x44444444;
      	tmp = *(addr+0);
      	*(addr+1) = 0x77777777;
      	write(fd, &val, sizeof(int));
      The results are not always 0x11111111 0x77777777 at the beginning as expected.  Sometimes we see 0x44444444 0x77777777.

      idr: fix a critical misallocation bug · 859ddf09
      Tejun Heo authored
      Eric Paris located a bug in idr.  With IDR_BITS of 6, it grows to three
      layers when id 4096 is first allocated.  When that happens, idr wraps
      incorrectly and searches the idr array ignoring the high bits.  The
      following test code from Eric demonstrates the bug nicely.
      #include <linux/idr.h>
      #include <linux/kernel.h>
      #include <linux/module.h>
      static DEFINE_IDR(test_idr);
      int init_module(void)
      	int ret, forty95, forty96;
      	void *addr;
      	/* add 2 entries both with 4095 as the start address */
      	if (!idr_pre_get(&test_idr, GFP_KERNEL))
      		return -ENOMEM;
      	ret = idr_get_new_above(&test_idr, (void *)4095, 4095, &forty95);
      	if (ret) {
      		if (ret == -EAGAIN)
      			goto again1;
      		return ret;
      	if (forty95 != 4095)
      		printk(KERN_ERR "hmmm, forty95=%d\n", forty95);
      	if (!idr_pre_get(&test_idr, GFP_KERNEL))
      		return -ENOMEM;
      	ret = idr_get_new_above(&test_idr, (void *)4096, 4095, &forty96);
      	if (ret) {
      		if (ret == -EAGAIN)
      			goto again2;
      		return ret;
      	if (forty96 != 4096)
      		printk(KERN_ERR "hmmm, forty96=%d\n", forty96);
      	/* try to find the 2 entries, noticing that 4096 broke */
      	addr = idr_find(&test_idr, forty95);
      	if ((int)addr != forty95)
      		printk(KERN_ERR "hmmm, after find forty95=%d addr=%d\n", forty95, (int)addr);
      	addr = idr_find(&test_idr, forty96);
      	if ((int)addr != forty96)
      		printk(KERN_ERR "hmmm, after find forty96=%d addr=%d\n", forty96, (int)addr);
      	/* really weird, the entry which should be at 4096 is actually at 0!! */
      	addr = idr_find(&test_idr, 0);
      	if ((int)addr)
      		printk(KERN_ERR "found an entry at id=0 for addr=%d\n", (int)addr);
      	idr_remove(&test_idr, forty95);
      	idr_remove(&test_idr, forty96);
      	return 0;

      MODULE_DESCRIPTION("Simple idr test");
      This happens because when sub_alloc() back tracks it doesn't always do it
      step-by-step while the over-the-limit detection assumes step-by-step
      backtracking.  The logic in sub_alloc() looks like the following.
          clear pa[top level + 1] for end cond detection
          l = top level
          while (true) {
      	search for empty slot at this level
      	if (not found) {
      	    push id to the next possible value
      A:	    if (pa[l] is clear)
      	        failed, return asking caller to grow the tree
      	    if (going up 1 level gives more slots to search)
      	        continue the while loop above with the incremented l
      C:	        goto restart
      	adjust id accordingly to the found slot
      	if (l == 0)
      	    return found id;
      	create lower level if not there yet
      	record pa[l] and l--
      Test A is the fail exit condition but this assumes that failure is
      propagated upwared one level at a time but the B optimization path breaks
      the assumption and restarts the whole thing with a start value which is
      above the possible limit with the current layers.  sub_alloc() assumes the
      start id value is inside the limit when called and test A is the only exit
      condition check, so it ends up searching for empty slot while ignoring
      high set bit.
      So, for 4095->4096 test, level0 search fails but pa[1] contains a valid
      pointer.  However, going up 1 level wouldn't give any more empty slot so
      it takes C and when the whole thing restarts nobody notices the high bit
      set beyond the top level.
      This patch fixes the bug by changing the fail exit condition check to full
      id limit check.

      Getting it is not used, let's drop support for notifications about
      (un)registered events from connector.
      Another option was to check credentials on receiving, but we can always
      restore it without bugs if needed, but genetlink has a wider code base
      and none complained, that userspace can not get notification when some
      other clients were (un)registered.

      Free memory allocated using kmem_cache_zalloc using kmem_cache_free rather
      than kfree.
      The semantic patch that makes this change is as follows:
      // <smpl>
      expression x,E,c;
       x = \(kmem_cache_alloc\|kmem_cache_zalloc\|kmem_cache_alloc_node\)(c,...)

      mm: purge fragmented percpu vmap blocks · 02b709df
      Nick Piggin authored
      Improve handling of fragmented per-CPU vmaps.  We previously don't free
      up per-CPU maps until all its addresses have been used and freed.  So
      fragmented blocks could fill up vmalloc space even if they actually had
      no active vmap regions within them.
      Add some logic to allow all CPUs to have these blocks purged in the case
      of failure to allocate a new vm area, and also put some logic to trim
      such blocks of a current CPU if we hit them in the allocation path (so
      as to avoid a large build up of them).
      Christoph reported some vmap allocation failures when using the per CPU
      vmap APIs in XFS, which cannot be reproduced after this patch and the
      previous bug fix.

      mm: percpu-vmap fix RCU list walking · de560423
      Nick Piggin authored
      RCU list walking of the per-cpu vmap cache was broken.  It did not use
      RCU primitives, and also the union of free_list and rcu_head is
      obviously wrong (because free_list is indeed the list we are RCU
      While we are there, remove a couple of unused fields from an earlier
      These APIs aren't actually used anywhere, because of problems with the
      XFS conversion.  Christoph has now verified that the problems are solved
      with these patches.  Also it is an exported interface, so I think it
      will be good to be merged now (and Christoph wants to get the XFS
      changes into their local tree).
