      x86/microcode: Do the family check first · 1f161f67
      Borislav Petkov authored
      On CPUs like AMD's Geode, for example, we shouldn't even try to load
      microcode because they do not support the modern microcode loading
      However, we do the family check *after* the other checks whether the
      loader has been disabled on the command line or whether we're running in
      a guest.
      So move the family checks first in order to exit early if we're being
      loaded on an unsupported family.

      x86/mm: Flush more aggressively in lazy TLB mode · b956575b
      Andy Lutomirski authored
      Since commit:
       ("x86/mm: Rework lazy TLB mode and TLB freshness tracking")
      x86's lazy TLB mode has been all the way lazy: when running a kernel thread
      (including the idle thread), the kernel keeps using the last user mm's
      page tables without attempting to maintain user TLB coherence at all.
      From a pure semantic perspective, this is fine -- kernel threads won't
      attempt to access user pages, so having stale TLB entries doesn't matter.
      Unfortunately, I forgot about a subtlety.  By skipping TLB flushes,
      we also allow any paging-structure caches that may exist on the CPU
      to become incoherent.  This means that we can have a
      paging-structure cache entry that references a freed page table, and
      the CPU is within its rights to do a speculative page walk starting
      at the freed page table.
      I can imagine this causing two different problems:
       - A speculative page walk starting from a bogus page table could read
         IO addresses.  I haven't seen any reports of this causing problems.
       - A speculative page walk that involves a bogus page table can install
         garbage in the TLB.  Such garbage would always be at a user VA, but
         some AMD CPUs have logic that triggers a machine check when it notices
         these bogus entries.  I've seen a couple reports of this.
      Boris further explains the failure mode:
      > It is actually more of an optimization which assumes that paging-structure
      > entries are in WB DRAM:
      > "TlbCacheDis: cacheable memory disable. Read-write. 0=Enables

      > I'm assuming coherent-only packets don't go out on IO links, thus the
      > error.
      To fix this, reinstate TLB coherence in lazy mode.  With this patch
      applied, we do it in one of two ways:
       - If we have PCID, we simply switch back to init_mm's page tables
         when we enter a kernel thread -- this seems to be quite cheap
         except for the cost of serializing the CPU.
       - If we don't have PCID, then we set a flag and switch to init_mm
         the first time we would otherwise need to flush the TLB.
      The /sys/kernel/debug/x86/tlb_use_lazy_mode debug switch can be changed
      to override the default mode for benchmarking.
      In theory, we could optimize this better by only flushing the TLB in
      lazy CPUs when a page table is freed.  Doing that would require
      auditing the mm code to make sure that all page table freeing goes
      through tlb_remove_page() as well as reworking some data structures
      to implement the improved flush logic.
