      Make most arch asm/module.h files use asm-generic/module.h · 786d35d4
      David Howells authored
      Use the mapping of Elf_[SPE]hdr, Elf_Addr, Elf_Sym, Elf_Dyn, Elf_Rel/Rela,
      ELF_R_TYPE() and ELF_R_SYM() to either the 32-bit version or the 64-bit version
      into asm-generic/module.h for all arches bar MIPS.
      
      Also, use the generic definition mod_arch_specific where possible.
      
      To this end, I've defined three new config bools:
      
       (*) HAVE_MOD_ARCH_SPECIFIC
      
           Arches define this if they don't want to use the empty generic
           mod_arch_specific struct.
      
       (*) MODULES_USE_ELF_RELA
      
           Arches define this if their modules can contain RELA records.  This causes
           the Elf_Rela mapping to be emitted and allows apply_relocate_add() to be
           defined by the arch rather than have the core emit an error message.
      
       (*) MODULES_USE_ELF_REL
      
           Arches define this if their modules can contain REL records.  This causes
           the Elf_Rel mapping to be emitted and allows apply_relocate() to be
           defined by the arch rather than have the core emit an error message.
      
      Note that it is possible to allow both REL and RELA records: m68k and mips are
      two arches that do this.
      
      With this, some arch asm/module.h files can be deleted entirely and replaced
      with a generic-y marker in the arch Kbuild file.
      
      Additionally, I have removed the bits from m32r and score that handle the
      unsupported type of relocation record as that's now handled centrally.

      module: taint kernel when lve module is loaded · c99af375
      Matthew Garrett authored
      Cloudlinux have a product called lve that includes a kernel module. This
      was previously GPLed but is now under a proprietary license, but the
      module continues to declare MODULE_LICENSE("GPL") and makes use of some
      EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL symbols. Forcibly taint it in order to avoid this.

      Pull another workqueue fix from Tejun Heo:
       "Unfortunately, yet another late fix.  This too is discovered and fixed
        by Lai.  This bug was introduced during this merge window by commit
        25511a47 ("workqueue: reimplement CPU online rebinding to handle
        idle workers") which started using WORKER_REBIND flag for idle rebind
        too.
      
        The bug is relatively easy to trigger if the CPU rapidly goes through
        off, on and then off (and stay off).  The fix is on the safer side.
        This hasn't been on linux-next yet but I'm pushing early so that it
        can get more exposure before v3.6 release."

      workqueue: always clear WORKER_REBIND in busy_worker_rebind_fn() · 960bd11b
      Lai Jiangshan authored
      busy_worker_rebind_fn() didn't clear WORKER_REBIND if rebinding failed
      (CPU is down again).  This used to be okay because the flag wasn't
      used for anything else.
      
      However, after 25511a47 "workqueue: reimplement CPU online rebinding
      to handle idle workers", WORKER_REBIND is also used to command idle
      workers to rebind.  If not cleared, the worker may confuse the next
      CPU_UP cycle by having REBIND spuriously set or oops / get stuck by
      prematurely calling idle_worker_rebind().

      There may be a bug when registering section info.  For example, on my

      other nodes' section info will be double registered, and memmap's page
      count will equal to 3.

      mm/page_alloc: fix the page address of higher page's buddy calculation · 0ba8f2d5
      Li Haifeng authored
      The heuristic method for buddy has been introduced since commit
      43506fad ("mm/page_alloc.c: simplify calculation of combined index
      of adjacent buddy lists").  But the page address of higher page's buddy
      was wrongly calculated, which will lead page_is_buddy to fail for ever.
      IOW, the heuristic method would be disabled with the wrong page address
      of higher page's buddy.
      
      Calculating the page address of higher page's buddy should be based
      higher_page with the offset between index of higher page and index of
      higher page's buddy.

      drivers/rtc/rtc-twl.c: ensure all interrupts are disabled during probe · 8dcebaa9
      Kevin Hilman authored
      On some platforms, bootloaders are known to do some interesting RTC
      programming.  Without going into the obscurities as to why this may be
      the case, suffice it to say the the driver should not make any
      assumptions about the state of the RTC when the driver loads.  In
      particular, the driver probe should be sure that all interrupts are
      disabled until otherwise programmed.
      
      This was discovered when finding bursty I2C traffic every second on
      Overo platforms.  This I2C overhead was keeping the SoC from hitting
      deep power states.  The cause was found to be the RTC firing every
      second on the I2C-connected TWL PMIC.
      
      Special thanks to Felipe Balbi for suggesting to look for a rogue driver
      as the source of the I2C traffic rather than the I2C driver itself.
      
      Special thanks to Steve Sakoman for helping track down the source of the
      continuous RTC interrups on the Overo boards.

      The kernel doesn't check the pid for negative values, so if you try to

      The crash happens because the next pid is -1, and alloc_pidmap() will

      Commit c76562b6 ("netvm: prevent a stream-specific deadlock")
      accidentally replaced the "size" parameter of sk_rmem_schedule() with an
      unsigned int.  This changes the semantics of the comparison in the
      return statement.
      
      In sk_wmem_schedule we have syntactically the same comparison, but
      "size" is a signed integer.  In addition, __sk_mem_schedule() takes a
      signed integer for its "size" parameter, so there is an implicit type
      conversion in sk_rmem_schedule() anyway.
      
      Revert the "size" parameter back to a signed integer so that the
      semantics of the expressions in both sk_[rw]mem_schedule() are exactly
      the same.

      slub: consider pfmemalloc_match() in get_partial_node() · 8ba00bb6
      Joonsoo Kim authored
      get_partial() is currently not checking pfmemalloc_match() meaning that
      it is possible for pfmemalloc pages to leak to non-pfmemalloc users.
      This is a problem in the following situation.  Assume that there is a
      request from normal allocation and there are no objects in the per-cpu
      cache and no node-partial slab.
      
      In this case, slab_alloc enters the slow path and new_slab_objects() is
      called which may return a PFMEMALLOC page.  As the current user is not
      allowed to access PFMEMALLOC page, deactivate_slab() is called
      ([5091b74a: mm: slub: optimise the SLUB fast path to avoid pfmemalloc
      checks]) and returns an object from PFMEMALLOC page.
      
      Next time, when we get another request from normal allocation,
      slab_alloc() enters the slow-path and calls new_slab_objects().  In
      new_slab_objects(), we call get_partial() and get a partial slab which
      was just deactivated but is a pfmemalloc page.  We extract one object
      from it and re-deactivate.
      
        "deactivate -> re-get in get_partial -> re-deactivate" occures repeatedly.
      
      As a result, access to PFMEMALLOC page is not properly restricted and it
      can cause a performance degradation due to frequent deactivation.
      deactivation frequently.
      
      This patch changes get_partial_node() to take pfmemalloc_match() into
      account and prevents the "deactivate -> re-get in get_partial()
      scenario.  Instead, new_slab() is called.

      slab: do ClearSlabPfmemalloc() for all pages of slab · 30c29bea
      Mel Gorman authored
      Right now, we call ClearSlabPfmemalloc() for first page of slab when we
      clear SlabPfmemalloc flag.  This is fine for most swap-over-network use
      cases as it is expected that order-0 pages are in use.  Unfortunately it
      is possible that that __ac_put_obj() checks SlabPfmemalloc on a tail
      page and while this is harmless, it is sloppy.  This patch ensures that
      the head page is always used.
      
      This problem was originally identified by Joonsoo Kim.

      nbd: clear waiting_queue on shutdown · fded4e09
      Paul Clements authored
      Fix a serious but uncommon bug in nbd which occurs when there is heavy
      I/O going to the nbd device while, at the same time, a failure (server,
      network) or manual disconnect of the nbd connection occurs.
      
      There is a small window between the time that the nbd_thread is stopped
      and the socket is shutdown where requests can continue to be queued to
      nbd's internal waiting_queue.  When this happens, those requests are
      never completed or freed.
      
      The fix is to clear the waiting_queue on shutdown of the nbd device, in
      the same way that the nbd request queue (queue_head) is already being
      cleared.

      mm/ia64: fix a memory block size bug · 05cf9639
      Jianguo Wu authored
      I found following definition in include/linux/memory.h, in my IA64
      platform, SECTION_SIZE_BITS is equal to 32, and MIN_MEMORY_BLOCK_SIZE
      will be 0.
      
        #define MIN_MEMORY_BLOCK_SIZE     (1 << SECTION_SIZE_BITS)
      
      Because MIN_MEMORY_BLOCK_SIZE is int type and length of 32bits,
      so MIN_MEMORY_BLOCK_SIZE(1 << 32) will will equal to 0.
      Actually when SECTION_SIZE_BITS >= 31, MIN_MEMORY_BLOCK_SIZE will be wrong.
      This will cause wrong system memory infomation in sysfs.
      I think it should be:
      
        #define MIN_MEMORY_BLOCK_SIZE     (1UL << SECTION_SIZE_BITS)
      
      And "echo offline > memory0/state" will cause following call trace:

      memory hotplug: reset pgdat->kswapd to NULL if creating kernel thread fails · 18b48d58
      Wen Congyang authored
      If kthread_run() fails, pgdat->kswapd contains errno.  When we stop this
      thread, we only check whether pgdat->kswapd is NULL and access it.  If
      it contains errno, it will cause page fault.  Reset pgdat->kswapd to
      NULL when creating kernel thread fails can avoid this problem.

      fs/proc: fix potential unregister_sysctl_table hang · 6bf61045
      Francesco Ruggeri authored
      The unregister_sysctl_table() function hangs if all references to its
      ctl_table_header structure are not dropped.
      
      This can happen sometimes because of a leak in proc_sys_lookup():
      proc_sys_lookup() gets a reference to the table via lookup_entry(), but
      it does not release it when a subsequent call to sysctl_follow_link()
      fails.
      
      This patch fixes this leak by making sure the reference is always
      dropped on return.
      
      See also commit 076c3eed ("sysctl: Rewrite proc_sys_lookup
      introducing find_entry and lookup_entry") which reorganized this code in
      3.4.
      
      Tested in Linux 3.4.4.
