      pid_namespace: pidns_get() should check task_active_pid_ns() != NULL · d2308225
      Oleg Nesterov authored
      pidns_get()->get_pid_ns() can hit ns == NULL. This task_struct can't
      go away, but task_active_pid_ns(task) is NULL if release_task(task)
      was already called. Alternatively we could change get_pid_ns(ns) to
      check ns != NULL, but it seems that other callers are fine.

      Pull kvm updates from Paolo Bonzini:
       "PPC and ARM do not have much going on this time.  Most of the cool
        stuff, instead, is in s390 and (after a few releases) x86.
        ARM has some caching fixes and PPC has transactional memory support in
        guests.  MIPS has some fixes, with more probably coming in 3.16 as
        QEMU will soon get support for MIPS KVM.
        For x86 there are optimizations for debug registers, which trigger on
        some Windows games, and other important fixes for Windows guests.  We
        now expose to the guest Broadwell instruction set extensions and also
        Intel MPX.  There's also a fix/workaround for OS X guests, nested
        virtualization features (preemption timer), and a couple kvmclock
        For s390, the main news is asynchronous page faults, together with
        improvements to IRQs (floating irqs and adapter irqs) that speed up
        virtio devices"

        the old /proc/device-tree code.  This simplifies the device tree
        handling code and tightens up the lifecycle on device tree nodes.

      Pull more ACPI and power management updates from Rafael Wysocki:
       "These are commits that were not quite ready when I sent the original
        pull request for 3.15-rc1 several days ago, but they have spent some
        time in linux-next since then and appear to be good to go.  All of
        them are fixes and cleanups.
         - Remaining changes from upstream ACPICA release 20140214 that
           introduce code to automatically serialize the execution of methods
           creating any named objects which really cannot be executed in
           parallel with each other anyway (previously ACPICA attempted to
           address that by aborting methods upon conflict detection, but that
           wasn't reliable enough and led to other issues).  From Bob Moore
           and Lv Zheng.
         - intel_pstate fix to use del_timer_sync() instead of del_timer() in
           the exit path before freeing the timer structure from Dirk
           Brandewie (original patch from Thomas Gleixner).
         - cpufreq fix related to system resume from Viresh Kumar.
         - Serialization of frequency transitions in cpufreq that involve
           PRECHANGE and POSTCHANGE notifications to avoid ordering issues
           resulting from race conditions.  From Srivatsa S Bhat and Viresh
         - Revert of an ACPI processor driver change that was based on a
           specific interpretation of the ACPI spec which may not be correct
           (the relevant part of the spec appears to be incomplete).  From
           Hanjun Guo.
         - Runtime PM core cleanups and documentation updates from Geert
         - PNP core cleanup from Michael Opdenacker"

       "This is the branch I mentioned in my other pull request which contains
        our improved cpuidle support for the "powernv" platform
        It adds support for the "fast sleep" feature of the processor which
        provides higher power savings than our usual "nap" mode but at the
        cost of losing the timers while asleep, and thus exploits the new
        timer broadcast framework to work around that limitation.

      Pull main powerpc updates from Ben Herrenschmidt:
       "This time around, the powerpc merges are going to be a little bit more
        complicated than usual.
        This is the main pull request with most of the work for this merge
        window.  I will describe it a bit more further down.
        There is some additional cpuidle driver work, however I haven't
        included it in this tree as it depends on some work in tip/timer-core
        which Thomas accidentally forgot to put in a topic branch.  Since I
        didn't want to carry all of that tip timer stuff in powerpc -next, I
        setup a separate branch on top of Thomas tree with just that cpuidle
        driver in it, and Stephen has been carrying that in next separately
        for a while now.  I'll send a separate pull request for it.
        Additionally, two new pieces in this tree add users for a sysfs API
        that Tejun and Greg have been deprecating in drivers-core-next.
        Thankfully Greg reverted the patch that removes the old API so this
        merge can happen cleanly, but once merged, I will send a patch
        adjusting our new code to the new API so that Greg can send you the
        removal patch.
        Now as for the content of this branch, we have a lot of perf work for
        power8 new counters including support for our new "nest" counters
        (also called 24x7) under pHyp (not natively yet).
        We have new functionality when running under the OPAL firmware
        (non-virtualized or KVM host), such as access to the firmware error
        logs and service processor dumps, system parameters and sensors, along
        with a hwmon driver for the latter.
        There's also a bunch of bug fixes accross the board, some LE fixes,
        and a nice set of selftests for validating our various types of copy
        On the Freescale side, we see mostly new chip/board revisions, some
        clock updates, better support for machine checks and debug exceptions,

        compat_get/put_timespec/val() which are savvy as to the current status

      Pull x86 vdso changes from Peter Anvin:
       "This is the revamp of the 32-bit vdso and the associated cleanups.
        This adds timekeeping support to the 32-bit vdso that we already have
        in the 64-bit vdso.  Although 32-bit x86 is legacy, it is likely to
        remain in the embedded space for a very long time to come.
        This removes the traditional COMPAT_VDSO support; the configuration
        variable is reused for simply removing the 32-bit vdso, which will
        produce correct results but obviously suffer a performance penalty.
        Only one beta version of glibc was affected, but that version was
        unfortunately included in one OpenSUSE release.
        This is not the end of the vdso cleanups.  Stefani and Andy have
        agreed to continue work for the next kernel cycle; in fact Andy has
        already produced another set of cleanups that came too late for this
        An incidental, but arguably important, change is that this ensures
        that unused space in the VVAR page is properly zeroed.  It wasn't
        before, and would contain whatever garbage was left in memory by BIOS
        or the bootloader.  Since the VVAR page is accessible to user space
        this had the potential of information leaks"

      Pull x86 boot changes from Peter Anvin:
       "This patchset is a set of cleanups aiming at librarize some of the
        common code from the boot environments.  We currently have three
        different "little environments" (boot, boot/compressed, and
        realmode/rm) in x86, and we are likely to soon get a fourth one
        (kexec/purgatory, which will have to be integrated in the kernel to
        support secure kexec).  This is primarily a cleanup in the
        anticipation of the latter.
        While Vivek implemented this, he ran into some bugs, in particular the
        memcmp implementation for when gcc punts from using the builtin would
        have a misnamed symbol, causing compilation errors if we were ever
        unlucky enough that gcc didn't want to inline the test"

      x86: Fix dumpstack_64 irq stack handling · 63c95654
      Steven Rostedt (Red Hat) authored
      Commit 2223f6f6
       "x86: Clean up dumpstack_64.c code" changed
      the irq_stack processing a little from what it was before.
      The irq_stack_end variable needed to be cleared after its first
      use. By setting irq_stack to the per cpu irq_stack and passing
      that to analyze_stack(), and then clearing it after it is processed,
      we can get back the original behavior.

      x86: Fix dumpstack_64 to keep state of "used" variable in loop · 1aabc599
      Steven Rostedt (Red Hat) authored
      Commit 2223f6f6
       "x86: Clean up dumpstack_64.c code" moved the used
      variable to a local within the loop, but the in_exception_stack()
      depended on being non-volatile with the ability to change it.
      By always re-initializing the "used" variable to zero, it would cause
      the in_exception_stack() to return the same thing each time, and
      cause the dump_stack loop to go into an infinite loop.
