       - a fix for the persistent memory 'struct page' driver.  The
         implementation overlooked the fact that pages are allocated in 2MB

         It's tagged for -stable as the problem was introduced with the

       - The new "error status translation" routine, introduced with the 4.6
         updates to the nfit driver, missed a necessary path in

      byteswap: try to avoid __builtin_constant_p gcc bug · 7322dd75
      Arnd Bergmann authored
      This is another attempt to avoid a regression in wwn_to_u64() after that
      started using get_unaligned_be64(), which in turn ran into a bug on
      gcc-4.9 through 6.1.
      The regression got introduced due to the combination of two separate
      workarounds (commits e3bde956: "include/linux/unaligned: force
      inlining of byteswap operations" and ef3fb242: "scsi: fc: use
      get/put_unaligned64 for wwn access") that each try to sidestep distinct
      problems with gcc behavior (code growth and increased stack usage).
      Unfortunately after both have been applied, a more serious gcc bug has
      been uncovered, leading to incorrect object code that discards part of a
      function and causes undefined behavior.
      As part of this problem is how __builtin_constant_p gets evaluated on an
      argument passed by reference into an inline function, this avoids the
      use of __builtin_constant_p() for all architectures that set
      CONFIG_ARCH_USE_BUILTIN_BSWAP.  Most architectures do not set
      ARCH_SUPPORTS_OPTIMIZED_INLINING, which means they probably do not
      suffer from the problem in the qla2xxx driver, but they might still run
      into it elsewhere.
      Both of the original workarounds were only merged in the 4.6 kernel, and
      the bug that is fixed by this patch should only appear if both are
      there, so we probably don't need to backport the fix.  On the other
      hand, it works by simplifying the code path and should not have any
      negative effects.

      lib/stackdepot: avoid to return 0 handle · 7c31190b
      Joonsoo Kim authored
      Recently, we allow to save the stacktrace whose hashed value is 0.  It
      causes the problem that stackdepot could return 0 even if in success.
      User of stackdepot cannot distinguish whether it is success or not so we
      need to solve this problem.  In this patch, 1 bit are added to handle
      and make valid handle none 0 by setting this bit.  After that, valid
      handle will not be 0 and 0 handle will represent failure correctly.

      modpost: fix module autoloading for OF devices with generic compatible property · acbef7b7
      Philipp Zabel authored
      Since the wildcard at the end of OF module aliases is gone, autoloading
      of modules that don't match a device's last (most generic) compatible
      value fails.
      For example the CODA960 VPU on i.MX6Q has the SoC specific compatible
      "fsl,imx6q-vpu" and the generic compatible "cnm,coda960".  Since the
      driver currently only works with knowledge about the SoC specific
      integration, it doesn't list "cnm,cod960" in the module device table.
      This results in the device compatible
      "of:NvpuT<NULL>Cfsl,imx6q-vpuCcnm,coda960" not matching the module alias
      "of:N*T*Cfsl,imx6q-vpu" anymore, whereas before commit 2f632369
      ("modpost: don't add a trailing wildcard for OF module aliases") it
      matched the module alias "of:N*T*Cfsl,imx6q-vpu*".
      This patch adds two module aliases for each compatible, one without the
      wildcard and one with "C*" appended.
        $ modinfo coda | grep imx6q
        alias:          of:N*T*Cfsl,imx6q-vpuC*
        alias:          of:N*T*Cfsl,imx6q-vpu

      proc: prevent accessing /proc/<PID>/environ until it's ready · 8148a73c
      Mathias Krause authored
      If /proc/<PID>/environ gets read before the envp[] array is fully set up
      in create_{aout,elf,elf_fdpic,flat}_tables(), we might end up trying to
      read more bytes than are actually written, as env_start will already be
      set but env_end will still be zero, making the range calculation
      underflow, allowing to read beyond the end of what has been written.
      Fix this as it is done for /proc/<PID>/cmdline by testing env_end for
      zero.  It is, apparently, intentionally set last in create_*_tables().
      This bug was found by the PaX size_overflow plugin that detected the
      arithmetic underflow of 'this_len = env_end - (env_start + src)' when
      env_end is still zero.
      The expected consequence is that userland trying to access
      /proc/<PID>/environ of a not yet fully set up process may get
      inconsistent data as we're in the middle of copying in the environment

      mm/zswap: provide unique zpool name · 32a4e169
      Dan Streetman authored
      Instead of using "zswap" as the name for all zpools created, add an
      atomic counter and use "zswap%x" with the counter number for each zpool
      created, to provide a unique name for each new zpool.
      As zsmalloc, one of the zpool implementations, requires/expects a unique
      name for each pool created, zswap should provide a unique name.  The
      zsmalloc pool creation does not fail if a new pool with a conflicting
      name is created, unless CONFIG_ZSMALLOC_STAT is enabled; in that case,
      zsmalloc pool creation fails with -ENOMEM.  Then zswap will be unable to
      change its compressor parameter if its zpool is zsmalloc; it also will
      be unable to change its zpool parameter back to zsmalloc, if it has any
      existing old zpool using zsmalloc with page(s) in it.  Attempts to
      change the parameters will result in failure to create the zpool.  This
      changes zswap to provide a unique name for each zpool creation.

      mm: thp: kvm: fix memory corruption in KVM with THP enabled · 127393fb
      Andrea Arcangeli authored
      After the THP refcounting change, obtaining a compound pages from
      get_user_pages() no longer allows us to assume the entire compound page
      is immediately mappable from a secondary MMU.
      A secondary MMU doesn't want to call get_user_pages() more than once for
      each compound page, in order to know if it can map the whole compound
      page.  So a secondary MMU needs to know from a single get_user_pages()
      invocation when it can map immediately the entire compound page to avoid
      a flood of unnecessary secondary MMU faults and spurious
      atomic_inc()/atomic_dec() (pages don't have to be pinned by MMU notifier
      Ideally instead of the page->_mapcount < 1 check, get_user_pages()
      should return the granularity of the "page" mapping in the "mm" passed
      to get_user_pages().  However it's non trivial change to pass the "pmd"
      status belonging to the "mm" walked by get_user_pages up the stack (up
      to the caller of get_user_pages).  So the fix just checks if there is
      not a single pte mapping on the page returned by get_user_pages, and in
      turn if the caller can assume that the whole compound page is mapped in
      the current "mm" (in a pmd_trans_huge()).  In such case the entire
      compound page is safe to map into the secondary MMU without additional
      get_user_pages() calls on the surrounding tail/head pages.  In addition
      of being faster, not having to run other get_user_pages() calls also
      reduces the memory footprint of the secondary MMU fault in case the pmd
      split happened as result of memory pressure.
      Without this fix after a MADV_DONTNEED (like invoked by QEMU during
      postcopy live migration or balloning) or after generic swapping (with a
      failure in split_huge_page() that would only result in pmd splitting and
      not a physical page split), KVM would map the whole compound page into
      the shadow pagetables, despite regular faults or userfaults (like
      UFFDIO_COPY) may map regular pages into the primary MMU as result of the
      pte faults, leading to the guest mode and userland mode going out of
      sync and not working on the same memory at all times.
      Any other secondary MMU notifier manager (KVM is just one of the many
      MMU notifier users) will need the same information if it doesn't want to
      run a flood of get_user_pages_fast and it can support multiple
      granularity in the secondary MMU mappings, so I think it is justified to
      be exposed not just to KVM.
      The other option would be to move transparent_hugepage_adjust to
      mm/huge_memory.c but that currently has all kind of KVM data structures
      in it, so it's definitely not a cut-and-paste work, so I couldn't do a
      fix as cleaner as this one for 4.6.

      mm, cma: prevent nr_isolated_* counters from going negative · 14af4a5e
      Hugh Dickins authored
      /proc/sys/vm/stat_refresh warns nr_isolated_anon and nr_isolated_file go
      increasingly negative under compaction: which would add delay when
      should be none, or no delay when should delay.  The bug in compaction
      was due to a recent mmotm patch, but much older instance of the bug was
      also noticed in isolate_migratepages_range() which is used for CMA and
      gigantic hugepage allocations.
      The bug is caused by putback_movable_pages() in an error path
      decrementing the isolated counters without them being previously
      incremented by acct_isolated().  Fix isolate_migratepages_range() by
      removing the error-path putback, thus reaching acct_isolated() with
      migratepages still isolated, and leaving putback to caller like most
      other places do.
