      configfs: provide exclusion between IO and removals · b0841eef
      Al Viro authored
      
      
      Make sure that attribute methods are not called after the item
      has been removed from the tree.  To do so, we
      	* at the point of no return in removals, grab ->frag_sem
      exclusive and mark the fragment dead.
      	* call the methods of attributes with ->frag_sem taken
      shared and only after having verified that the fragment is still
      alive.
      
      	The main benefit is for method instances - they are
      guaranteed that the objects they are accessing *and* all ancestors
      are still there.  Another win is that we don't need to bother
      with extra refcount on config_item when opening a file -
      the item will be alive for as long as it stays in the tree, and
      we won't touch it/attributes/any associated data after it's
      been removed from the tree.

      sched/core: Fix uclamp ABI bug, clean up and robustify sched_read_attr() ABI logic and code · 1251201c
      Ingo Molnar authored
      Thadeu Lima de Souza Cascardo reported that 'chrt' broke on recent kernels:
      
        $ chrt -p $$
        chrt: failed to get pid 26306's policy: Argument list too long
      
      and he has root-caused the bug to the following commit increasing sched_attr
      size and breaking sched_read_attr() into returning -EFBIG:
      
        a509a7cd
      
       ("sched/uclamp: Extend sched_setattr() to support utilization clamping")
      
      The other, bigger bug is that the whole sched_getattr() and sched_read_attr()
      logic of checking non-zero bits in new ABI components is arguably broken,
      and pretty much any extension of the ABI will spuriously break the ABI.
      That's way too fragile.
      
      Instead implement the perf syscall's extensible ABI instead, which we
      already implement on the sched_setattr() side:
      
       - if user-attributes have the same size as kernel attributes then the
         logic is unchanged.
      
       - if user-attributes are larger than the kernel knows about then simply
         skip the extra bits, but set attr->size to the (smaller) kernel size
         so that tooling can (in principle) handle older kernel as well.
      
       - if user-attributes are smaller than the kernel knows about then just
         copy whatever user-space can accept.
      
      Also clean up the whole logic:
      
       - Simplify the code flow - there's no need for 'ret' for example.
      
       - Standardize on 'kattr/uattr' and 'ksize/usize' naming to make sure we
         always know which side we are dealing with.
      
       - Why is it called 'read' when what it does is to copy to user? This
         code is so far away from VFS read() semantics that the naming is
         actively confusing. Name it sched_attr_copy_to_user() instead, which
         mirrors other copy_to_user() functionality.
      
       - Move the attr->size assignment from the head of sched_getattr() to the
         sched_attr_copy_to_user() function. Nothing else within the kernel
         should care about the size of the structure.
      
      With these fixes the sched_getattr() syscall now nicely supports an
      extensible ABI in both a forward and backward compatible fashion, and
      will also fix the chrt bug.
      
      As an added bonus the bogus -EFBIG return is removed as well, which as
      Thadeu noted should have been -E2BIG to begin with.

      powerpc/tm: Fix restoring FP/VMX facility incorrectly on interrupts · a8318c13
      Gustavo Romero authored
      When in userspace and MSR FP=0 the hardware FP state is unrelated to
      the current process. This is extended for transactions where if tbegin
      is run with FP=0, the hardware checkpoint FP state will also be
      unrelated to the current process. Due to this, we need to ensure this
      hardware checkpoint is updated with the correct state before we enable
      FP for this process.
      
      Unfortunately we get this wrong when returning to a process from a
      hardware interrupt. A process that starts a transaction with FP=0 can
      take an interrupt. When the kernel returns back to that process, we
      change to FP=1 but with hardware checkpoint FP state not updated. If
      this transaction is then rolled back, the FP registers now contain the
      wrong state.
      
      The process looks like this:
         Userspace:                      Kernel
      
                     Start userspace
                      with MSR FP=0 TM=1
                        < -----
         ...
         tbegin
         bne
                     Hardware interrupt
                         ---- >
                                          <do_IRQ...>
                                          ....
                                          ret_from_except
                                            restore_math()
      				        /* sees FP=0 */
                                              restore_fp()
                                                tm_active_with_fp()
      					    /* sees FP=1 (Incorrect) */
                                                load_fp_state()
                                              FP = 0 -> 1
                        < -----
                     Return to userspace
                       with MSR TM=1 FP=1
                       with junk in the FP TM checkpoint
         TM rollback
         reads FP junk
      
      When returning from the hardware exception, tm_active_with_fp() is
      incorrectly making restore_fp() call load_fp_state() which is setting
      FP=1.
      
      The fix is to remove tm_active_with_fp().
      
      tm_active_with_fp() is attempting to handle the case where FP state
      has been changed inside a transaction. In this case the checkpointed
      and transactional FP state is different and hence we must restore the
      FP state (ie. we can't do lazy FP restore inside a transaction that's
      used FP). It's safe to remove tm_active_with_fp() as this case is
      handled by restore_tm_state(). restore_tm_state() detects if FP has
      been using inside a transaction and will set load_fp and call
      restore_math() to ensure the FP state (checkpoint and transaction) is
      restored.
      
      This is a data integrity problem for the current process as the FP
      registers are corrupted. It's also a security problem as the FP
      registers from one process may be leaked to another.
      
      Similarly for VMX.
      
      A simple testcase to replicate this will be posted to
      tools/testing/selftests/powerpc/tm/tm-poison.c
      
      This fixes CVE-2019-15031.

      powerpc/tm: Fix FP/VMX unavailable exceptions inside a transaction · 8205d5d9
      Gustavo Romero authored
      When we take an FP unavailable exception in a transaction we have to
      account for the hardware FP TM checkpointed registers being
      incorrect. In this case for this process we know the current and
      checkpointed FP registers must be the same (since FP wasn't used
      inside the transaction) hence in the thread_struct we copy the current
      FP registers to the checkpointed ones.
      
      This copy is done in tm_reclaim_thread(). We use thread->ckpt_regs.msr
      to determine if FP was on when in userspace. thread->ckpt_regs.msr
      represents the state of the MSR when exiting userspace. This is setup
      by check_if_tm_restore_required().
      
      Unfortunatley there is an optimisation in giveup_all() which returns
      early if tsk->thread.regs->msr (via local variable `usermsr`) has
      FP=VEC=VSX=SPE=0. This optimisation means that
      check_if_tm_restore_required() is not called and hence
      thread->ckpt_regs.msr is not updated and will contain an old value.
      
      This can happen if due to load_fp=255 we start a userspace process
      with MSR FP=1 and then we are context switched out. In this case
      thread->ckpt_regs.msr will contain FP=1. If that same process is then
      context switched in and load_fp overflows, MSR will have FP=0. If that
      process now enters a transaction and does an FP instruction, the FP
      unavailable will not update thread->ckpt_regs.msr (the bug) and MSR
      FP=1 will be retained in thread->ckpt_regs.msr.  tm_reclaim_thread()
      will then not perform the required memcpy and the checkpointed FP regs
      in the thread struct will contain the wrong values.
      
      The code path for this happening is:
      
             Userspace:                      Kernel
                         Start userspace
                          with MSR FP/VEC/VSX/SPE=0 TM=1

                                               ....

             TM rollback

      This is a data integrity problem for the current process as the FP
      registers are corrupted. It's also a security problem as the FP
      registers from one process may be leaked to another.
      
      This patch moves up check_if_tm_restore_required() in giveup_all() to
      ensure thread->ckpt_regs.msr is updated correctly.

      mm/balloon_compaction: suppress allocation warnings · 02fa5d7b

      There is no reason to print warnings when balloon page allocation fails,
      as they are expected and can be handled gracefully.  Since VMware
      balloon now uses balloon-compaction infrastructure, and suppressed these
      warnings before, it is also beneficial to suppress these warnings to
      keep the same behavior that the balloon had before.

      virtio-net: lower min ring num_free for efficiency · 718be6ba
      ? jiang authored
      
      
      This change lowers ring buffer reclaim threshold from 1/2*queue to budget
      for better performance. According to our test with qemu + dpdk, packet
      dropping happens when the guest is not able to provide free buffer in
      avail ring timely with default 1/2*queue. The value in the patch has been
      tested and does show better performance.
      
      Test setup: iperf3 to generate packets to guest (total 30mins, pps 400k, UDP)
      avg packets drop before: 2842
      avg packets drop after: 360(-87.3%)
      
      Further, current code suffers from a starvation problem: the amount of
      work done by try_fill_recv is not bounded by the budget parameter, thus
      (with large queues) once in a while userspace gets blocked for a long
      time while queue is being refilled. Trigger refills earlier to make sure
      the amount of work to do is limited.
