         and possible invalid accesses to memory due to wrong instruction
         decoding (Mikulas Patocka)
       - Fix userspace crash when syscalls access invalid unaligned userspace

      devpts: Make each mount of devpts an independent filesystem. · eedf265a
      Eric W. Biederman authored
      The /dev/ptmx device node is changed to lookup the directory entry "pts"
      in the same directory as the /dev/ptmx device node was opened in.  If
      there is a "pts" entry and that entry is a devpts filesystem /dev/ptmx
      uses that filesystem.  Otherwise the open of /dev/ptmx fails.
      The DEVPTS_MULTIPLE_INSTANCES configuration option is removed, so that
      userspace can now safely depend on each mount of devpts creating a new
      instance of the filesystem.
      Each mount of devpts is now a separate and equal filesystem.
      Reserved ttys are now available to all instances of devpts where the
      mounter is in the initial mount namespace.
      A new vfs helper path_pts is introduced that finds a directory entry
      named "pts" in the directory of the passed in path, and changes the
      passed in path to point to it.  The helper path_pts uses a function
      path_parent_directory that was factored out of follow_dotdot.
      In the implementation of devpts:
       - devpts_mnt is killed as it is no longer meaningful if all mounts of
         devpts are equal.
       - pts_sb_from_inode is replaced by just inode->i_sb as all cached
         inodes in the tty layer are now from the devpts filesystem.
       - devpts_add_ref is rolled into the new function devpts_ptmx.  And the
         unnecessary inode hold is removed.
       - devpts_del_ref is renamed devpts_release and reduced to just a
       - The newinstance mount option continues to be accepted but is now
      In devpts_fs.h definitions for when !CONFIG_UNIX98_PTYS are removed as
      they are never used.
      Documentation/filesystems/devices.txt is updated to describe the current
      This has been verified to work properly on openwrt-15.05, centos5,
      centos6, centos7, debian-6.0.2, debian-7.9, debian-8.2, ubuntu-14.04.3,
      ubuntu-15.10, fedora23, magia-5, mint-17.3, opensuse-42.1,
      slackware-14.1, gentoo-20151225 (13.0?), archlinux-2015-12-01.  With the
      caveat that on centos6 and on slackware-14.1 that there wind up being
      two instances of the devpts filesystem mounted on /dev/pts, the lower
      copy does not end up getting used.

        [<0000000040205024>] syscall_exit+0x0/0x14
      This means the userspace program clock_adjtime called the clock_adjtime()
      syscall and then crashed inside the compat_get_timex() function.
      Syscalls should never crash programs, but instead return EFAULT.
      The IIR register contains the executed instruction, which disassebles
      into "ldw 0(sr3,r5),r9".
      This load-word instruction is part of __get_user() which tried to read the word
      at %r5/IOR (0xfa6f7fff). This means the unaligned handler jumped in.  The
      unaligned handler is able to emulate all ldw instructions, but it fails if it
      fails to read the source e.g. because of page fault.
      The following program reproduces the problem:
      #define _GNU_SOURCE
      #include <unistd.h>
      #include <sys/syscall.h>
      #include <sys/mman.h>
      int main(void) {
              /* allocate 8k */
              char *ptr = mmap(NULL, 2*4096, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE, MAP_PRIVATE|MAP_ANONYMOUS, -1, 0);
              /* free second half (upper 4k) and make it invalid. */
              munmap(ptr+4096, 4096);
              /* syscall where first int is unaligned and clobbers into invalid memory region */
              /* syscall should return EFAULT */
              return syscall(__NR_clock_adjtime, 0, ptr+4095);
      To fix this issue we simply need to check if the faulting instruction address
      is in the exception fixup table when the unaligned handler failed. If it
      is, call the fixup routine instead of crashing.
      While looking at the unaligned handler I found another issue as well: The
      target register should not be modified if the handler was unsuccessful.

      autofs braino fix for do_last() · e6ec03a2
      Al Viro authored
      It's an analogue of commit 7500c38a
       (fix the braino in "namei:
      massage lookup_slow() to be usable by lookup_one_len_unlocked()").
      The same problem (->lookup()-returned unhashed negative dentry
      just might be an autofs one with ->d_manage() that would wait
      until the daemon makes it positive) applies in do_last() - we
      need to do follow_managed() first.
      Fortunately, remaining callers of follow_managed() are OK - only
      autofs has that weirdness (negative dentry that does not mean
      an instant -ENOENT)) and autofs never has its negative dentries
      hashed, so we can't pick one from a dcache lookup.
      ->d_manage() is a bloody mess ;-/

      parisc: Fix backtrace on PA-RISC · be24a897
      Mikulas Patocka authored
      This patch fixes backtrace on PA-RISC
      There were several problems:
      1) The code that decodes instructions handles instructions that subtract
      from the stack pointer incorrectly. If the instruction subtracts the
      number X from the stack pointer the code increases the frame size by
      (0x100000000-X).  This results in invalid accesses to memory and
      recursive page faults.
      2) Because gcc reorders blocks, handling instructions that subtract from
      the frame pointer is incorrect. For example, this function
      	int f(int a)
      		if (__builtin_expect(a, 1))
      			return a;
      		return a;
      is compiled in such a way, that the code that decreases the stack
      pointer for the first "return a" is placed before the code for "g" call.
      If we recognize this decrement, we mistakenly believe that the frame
      size for the "g" call is zero.
      To fix problems 1) and 2), the patch doesn't recognize instructions that
      decrease the stack pointer at all. To further safeguard the unwind code
      against nonsense values, we don't allow frame size larger than
      3) The backtrace is not locked. If stack dump races with module unload,
      invalid table can be accessed.
      This patch adds a spinlock when processing module tables.
      Note, that for correct backtrace, you need recent binutils.
      Binutils 2.18 from Debian 5 produce garbage unwind tables.
      Binutils 2.21 work better (it sometimes forgets function frames, but at
      least it doesn't generate garbage).

      fix EOPENSTALE bug in do_last() · fac7d191
      Al Viro authored
      EOPENSTALE occuring at the last component of a trailing symlink ends up
      with do_last() retrying its lookup.  After the symlink body has been
      discarded.  The thing is, all this retry_lookup logics in there is not
      needed at all - the upper layers will do the right thing if we simply
      return that -EOPENSTALE as we would with any other error.  Trying to
      microoptimize in do_last() is a lot of headache for no good reason.
