| * genirq: Fix incorrect proc spurious outputKenji Kaneshige2010-12-011-1/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Since commit a1afb637(switch /proc/irq/*/spurious to seq_file) all /proc/irq/XX/spurious files show the information of irq 0. Current irq_spurious_proc_open() passes on NULL as the 3rd argument, which is used as an IRQ number in irq_spurious_proc_show(), to the single_open(). Because of this, all the /proc/irq/XX/spurious file shows IRQ 0 information regardless of the IRQ number. To fix the problem, irq_spurious_proc_open() must pass on the appropreate data (IRQ number) to single_open().

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | There is a problem that swap pages allocated before the creation of a hibernation image can be released and used for storing the contents of different memory pages while the image is being saved. Since the kernel stored in the image doesn't know of that, it causes memory corruption to occur after resume from hibernation, especially on systems with relatively small RAM that need to swap often. This issue can be addressed by keeping the GFP_IOFS bits clear in gfp_allowed_mask during the entire hibernation, including the saving of the image, until the system is finally turned off or the hibernation is aborted. Unfortunately, for this purpose it's necessary to rework the way in which the hibernate and suspend code manipulates gfp_allowed_mask. This change is based on an earlier patch from Hugh Dickins.

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This is a fix for reading LZO compressed image using async I/O. Essentially, instead of having just one page into which we keep reading blocks from swap, we allocate enough of them to cover the largest compressed size and then let block I/O pick them all up. Once we have them all (and here we wait), we decompress them, as usual. Obviously, the very first block we still pick up synchronously, because we need to know the size of the lot before we pick up the rest. Also fixed the copyright line, which I've forgotten before.

* | | do_exit(): make sure that we run with get_fs() == USER_DSNelson Elhage2010-12-021-0/+9
| |/ |/| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | If a user manages to trigger an oops with fs set to KERNEL_DS, fs is not otherwise reset before do_exit(). do_exit may later (via mm_release in fork.c) do a put_user to a user-controlled address, potentially allowing a user to leverage an oops into a controlled write into kernel memory. This is only triggerable in the presence of another bug, but this potentially turns a lot of DoS bugs into privilege escalations, so it's worth fixing. I have proof-of-concept code which uses this bug along with CVE-2010-3849 to write a zero to an arbitrary kernel address, so I've tested that this is not theoretical. A more logical place to put this fix might be when we know an oops has occurred, before we call do_exit(), but that would involve changing every architecture, in multiple places. Let's just stick it in do_exit instead.

There's two different aspects to this: - kernel based perf-events, these should not take out a reference on the creating task and appear on the task's event list since they're not bound to fds nor visible to userspace. - fork() and pthread_create(), these can lead to the creating task dying (and thus the task's event-list becomming useless) but keeping the list and ref alive until the event is closed. Combined they lead to malfunction of the ptrace hw_tracepoints. Cure this by not considering kernel based perf_events for the owner-list and destroying the owner-list when the owner dies.

The boot arguments are: earlyprintk=vga ekgdboc=kbd kgdbwait Then simply type "go" at the kdb prompt and boot. The kernel will later emit the message: kgdb: Could not allocate hwbreakpoints And at that point the kernel debugger will cease to work correctly. The solution is to initialize the hw_breakpoint at the same time that all the other perf call backs are initialized instead of using a core_initcall() initialization which happens well after the kernel debugger can make use of hardware breakpoints.

If it is static, it defaults to __trace_bprintk() otherwise it uses __trace_printk(). A while ago, Lai Jiangshan added __trace_bprintk(). In that patch, we discussed a way to allow modules to use it. The difference between __trace_bprintk() and __trace_printk() is that for faster processing, just the format and args are stored in the trace instead of running it through a sprintf function. In order to do this, the format used by the __trace_bprintk() had to be persistent. See commit 1ba28e02a18cbdbea123836f6c98efb09cbf59ec The problem comes with trace_bprintk() where the module is unloaded. The pointer left in the buffer is still pointing to the format. To solve this issue, the formats in the module were copied into kernel core. If the same format was used, they would use the same copy (to prevent memory leak). This all worked well until we tried to merge everything. At the time this was written, Lai Jiangshan, Frederic Weisbecker, Ingo Molnar and myself were all touching the same code. When this was merged, we lost the part of it that was in module.c. This kept out the copying of the formats and unloading the module could cause bad pointers left in the ring buffer. This patch adds back (with updates required for current kernel) the module code that sets up the necessary pointers.

It turns out that this can break certain existing user land setups. Quoth Sarah Sharp: "On Wednesday, I updated my branch to commit 460781b from linus' tree, and my box would not boot. klogd segfaulted, which stalled the whole system. At first I thought it actually hung the box, but it continued booting after 5 minutes, and I was able to log in. It dropped back to the text console instead of the graphical bootup display for that period of time. dmesg surprisingly still works. I've bisected the problem down to this commit (commit 59365d136d205cc20fe666ca7f89b1c5001b0d5a) The box is running klogd 1.5.5ubuntu3 (from Jaunty). Yes, I know that's old. I read the bit in the commit about changing the permissions of kallsyms after boot, but if I can't boot that doesn't help." So let's just keep the old default, and encourage distributions to do the "chmod -r /proc/kallsyms" in their bootup scripts. This is not worth a kernel option to change default behavior, since it's so easily done in user space.

Target of this starter patch and follow ups is removing any kind of kernel space address information leak from the kernel. [ Side note: the default of root-only reading is the "safe" value, and it's easy enough to then override at any time after boot. The /proc filesystem allows root to change the permissions with a regular chmod, so you can "revert" this at run-time by simply doing chmod og+r /proc/kallsyms as root if you really want regular users to see the kernel symbols. It does help some tools like "perf" figure them out without any setup, so it may well make sense in some situations. - Linus ] Signed-off-by: Marcus Meissner <meissner@suse.de> Acked-by: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org> Acked-by: Eugene Teo <eugeneteo@kernel.org> Reviewed-by: Jesper Juhl <jj@chaosbits.net> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>

As the number of cores and threads are increasing, current values of imbalance_pct (for example 25% for a NUMA domain) are not enough to detect imbalances like: a) On a WSM-EP system (two sockets, each having 6 cores and 12 logical threads), 24 cpu-hogging tasks get scheduled as 13 on one socket and 11 on another socket. Leading to an idle HT cpu. b) On a hypothetial 2 socket NHM-EX system (each socket having 8 cores and 16 logical threads), 16 cpu-hogging tasks can get scheduled as 9 on one socket and 7 on another socket. Leaving one core in a socket idle whereas in another socket we have a core having both its HT siblings busy. While this issue can be fixed by decreasing the domain's imbalance_pct (by making it a function of number of logical cpus in the domain), it can potentially cause more task migrations across sched groups in an overloaded case. Fix this by using imbalance_pct only during newly_idle and busy load balancing. And during idle load balancing, check if there is an imbalance in number of idle cpu's across the busiest and this sched_group or if the busiest group has more tasks than its weight that the idle cpu in this_group can pull.

Without this patch both time_enabled and time_running are bogus when user asks for PERF_SAMPLE_READ. One uses PERF_SAMPLE_READ to sample the values of other counters in each sample. Because of multiplexing, it is necessary to know both time_enabled, time_running to be able to scale counts correctly. In this second version of the patch, we maintain a shadow copy of ctx->time which allows us to compute ctx->time without calling update_context_time() from NMI context. We avoid the issue that update_context_time() must always be called with ctx->lock held. We do not keep shadow copies of the other event timings because if the lead event is overflowing then it is active and thus it's been scheduled in via event_sched_in() in which case neither tstamp_stopped, tstamp_running can be modified. This timing logic only applies to samples when PERF_SAMPLE_READ is used. Note that this patch does not address timing issues related to sampling inheritance between tasks. This will be addressed in a future patch.

Rather than futilely attempt to sanitize hundreds (or thousands) of printk statements and simultaneously cripple useful debugging functionality, it is far simpler to create an option that prevents unprivileged users from reading the syslog. This patch, loosely based on grsecurity's GRKERNSEC_DMESG, creates the dmesg_restrict sysctl. When set to "0", the default, no restrictions are enforced. When set to "1", only users with CAP_SYS_ADMIN can read the kernel syslog via dmesg(8) or other mechanisms.

|/ / | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | clean_sort_range() should return a number of nonempty elements of range array, but if the array is full clean_sort_range() returns 0. The problem is that the number of nonempty elements is evaluated by finding the first empty element of the array. If there is no such element it returns an initial value of local variable nr_range that is zero. The fix is trivial: it changes initial value of nr_range to size of the array. The bug can lead to loss of information regarding all ranges, since typically returned value of clean_sort_range() is considered as an actual number of ranges in the array after a series of add/subtract operations.

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | posix-cpu-timers.c correctly assumes that the dying process does posix_cpu_timers_exit_group() and removes all !CPUCLOCK_PERTHREAD timers from signal->cpu_timers list. But, it also assumes that timer->it.cpu.task is always the group leader, and thus the dead ->task means the dead thread group. This is obviously not true after de_thread() changes the leader. After that almost every posix_cpu_timer_ method has problems. It is not simple to fix this bug correctly. First of all, I think that timer->it.cpu should use struct pid instead of task_struct. Also, the locking should be reworked completely. In particular, tasklist_lock should not be used at all. This all needs a lot of nontrivial and hard-to-test changes. Change __exit_signal() to do posix_cpu_timers_exit_group() when the old leader dies during exec. This is not the fix, just the temporary hack to hide the problem for 2.6.37 and stable. IOW, this is obviously wrong but this is what we currently have anyway: cpu timers do not work after mt exec. In theory this change adds another race. The exiting leader can detach the timers which were attached to the new leader. However, the window between de_thread() and release_task() is small, we can pretend that sys_timer_create() was called before de_thread().
