      audit: eliminate unnecessary extra layer of watch parent references · aa7c043d
      Richard Guy Briggs authored
      The audit watch parent count was imbalanced, adding an unnecessary layer of
      watch parent references.  Decrement the additional parent reference when a
      watch is reused, already having a reference to the parent.
      
      audit_find_parent() gets a reference to the parent, if the parent is
      already known.  This additional parental reference is not needed if the
      watch is subsequently found by audit_add_to_parent(), and consumed if
      the watch does not already exist, so we need to put the parent if the
      watch is found, and do nothing if this new watch is added to the parent.
      
      If the parent wasn't already known, it is created with a refcount of 1
      and added to the audit_watch_group, then incremented by one to be
      subsequently consumed by the newly created watch in
      audit_add_to_parent().
      
      The rule points to the watch, not to the parent, so the rule's refcount
      gets bumped, not the parent's.

      nios2: fix cache coherency issue when debug with gdb · 4a89c308
      Ley Foon Tan authored
      Remove the end address checking for flushda function. We need to flush
      each address line for flushda instruction, from start to end address.
      This is because flushda instruction only flush the cache if tag and line
      fields are matched.
      
      Change to use ldwio instruction (bypass cache) to load the instruction
      that causing trap. Our interest is the actual instruction that executed
      by the processor, this should be uncached.
      Note, EA address might be an userspace cached address.

       "These are stable-candidate fixes of some recently reported issues in

        hibernate core.
      
        Specifics:
      
         - Revert a 3.17 hibernate commit that was supposed to fix an issue
           related to e820 reserved regions, but broke resume from hibernation
           on Lenovo x230 (Rafael J Wysocki).
      
         - Prevent the ACPI cpuidle driver from overwriting the name and
           description of the C0 state set by the core when the list of
           C-states changes (Thomas Schlichter).
      
         - Remove the no longer needed state_count field from struct
           cpuidle_device which prevents the list of C-states shown by the
           sysfs interface from becoming incorrect when the current number of
           them is different from the number of C-states on boot (Bartlomiej
           Zolnierkiewicz).
      
         - The cpufreq core updates the policy object of the only online CPU
           during system resume to make it reflect the current hardware state,
           but it always assumes that CPU to be CPU0 which need not be the
           case, so fix the code to avoid that assumption (Viresh Kumar)"

      ocfs2: _really_ sync the right range · 64b4e252
      Al Viro authored
      "ocfs2 syncs the wrong range" had been broken; prior to it the
      code was doing the wrong thing in case of O_APPEND, all right,
      but _after_ it we were syncing the wrong range in 100% cases.
      *ppos, aka iocb->ki_pos is incremented prior to that point,
      so we are always doing sync on the area _after_ the one we'd
      written to.

      Copy the kernel module data from user space in chunks · 3afe9f84
      Linus Torvalds authored
      Unlike most (all?) other copies from user space, kernel module loading
      is almost unlimited in size.  So we do a potentially huge
      "copy_from_user()" when we copy the module data from user space to the
      kernel buffer, which can be a latency concern when preemption is
      disabled (or voluntary).
      
      Also, because 'copy_from_user()' clears the tail of the kernel buffer on
      failures, even a *failed* copy can end up wasting a lot of time.
      
      Normally neither of these are concerns in real life, but they do trigger
      when doing stress-testing with trinity.  Running in a VM seems to add
      its own overheadm causing trinity module load testing to even trigger
      the watchdog.
      
      The simple fix is to just chunk up the module loading, so that it never
      tries to copy insanely big areas in one go.  That bounds the latency,
      and also the amount of (unnecessarily, in this case) cleared memory for
      the failure case.

      x86: clean up/fix 'copy_in_user()' tail zeroing · cae2a173
      Linus Torvalds authored
      The rule for 'copy_from_user()' is that it zeroes the remaining kernel
      buffer even when the copy fails halfway, just to make sure that we don't
      leave uninitialized kernel memory around.  Because even if we check for
      errors, some kernel buffers stay around after thge copy (think page
      cache).
      
      However, the x86-64 logic for user copies uses a copy_user_generic()
      function for all the cases, that set the "zerorest" flag for any fault
      on the source buffer.  Which meant that it didn't just try to clear the
      kernel buffer after a failure in copy_from_user(), it also tried to
      clear the destination user buffer for the "copy_in_user()" case.
      
      Not only is that pointless, it also means that the clearing code has to
      worry about the tail clearing taking page faults for the user buffer
      case.  Which is just stupid, since that case shouldn't happen in the
      first place.
      
      Get rid of the whole "zerorest" thing entirely, and instead just check
      if the destination is in kernel space or not.  And then just use
      memset() to clear the tail of the kernel buffer if necessary.
