      powerpc/vdso: Remove redundant locking in update_vsyscall_tz() · ce73ec6d
      Shan Hai authored
      The locking in update_vsyscall_tz() is not only unnecessary because the vdso
      code copies the data unproteced in __kernel_gettimeofday() but also
      introduces a hard to reproduce race condition between update_vsyscall()
      and update_vsyscall_tz(), which causes user space process to loop
      forever in vdso code.
      The following patch removes the locking from update_vsyscall_tz().
      Locking is not only unnecessary because the vdso code copies the data
      unprotected in __kernel_gettimeofday() but also erroneous because updating
      the tb_update_count is not atomic and introduces a hard to reproduce race
      condition between update_vsyscall() and update_vsyscall_tz(), which further
      causes user space process to loop forever in vdso code.
      The below scenario describes the race condition,
      x==0	Boot CPU			other CPU
      	proc_P: x==0
      	    timer interrupt
      x==1		    x++;sync		settimeofday
      x==2						x++;sync
      x==3		    sync;x++
      	proc_P: x==3 (loops until x becomes even)
      Because the ++ operator would be implemented as three instructions and not
      atomic on powerpc.
      A similar change was made for x86 in commit 6c260d58
      ("x86: vdso: Remove bogus locking in update_vsyscall_tz")

      leds: leds-gpio: set devm_gpio_request_one() flags param correctly · 2d7c22f6
      Javier Martinez Canillas authored
      commit a99d76f9 leds: leds-gpio: use gpio_request_one
      changed the leds-gpio driver to use gpio_request_one() instead
      of gpio_request() + gpio_direction_output()
      Unfortunately, it also made a semantic change that breaks the
      leds-gpio driver.
      The gpio_request_one() flags parameter was set to:
      GPIOF_DIR_OUT | (led_dat->active_low ^ state)
      Since GPIOF_DIR_OUT is 0, the final flags value will just be the
      XOR'ed value of led_dat->active_low and state.
      This value were used to distinguish between HIGH/LOW output initial
      level and call gpio_direction_output() accordingly.
      With this new semantic gpio_request_one() will take the flags value
      of 1 as a configuration of input direction (GPIOF_DIR_IN) and will
      call gpio_direction_input() instead of gpio_direction_output().
      int gpio_request_one(unsigned gpio, unsigned long flags, const char *label)
      	if (flags & GPIOF_DIR_IN)
      		err = gpio_direction_input(gpio);
      		err = gpio_direction_output(gpio,
      				(flags & GPIOF_INIT_HIGH) ? 1 : 0);
      The right semantic is to evaluate led_dat->active_low ^ state and
      set the output initial level explicitly.

      tmpfs mempolicy: fix /proc/mounts corrupting memory · f2a07f40
      Hugh Dickins authored
      Recently I suggested using "mount -o remount,mpol=local /tmp" in NUMA
      mempolicy testing.  Very nasty.  Reading /proc/mounts, /proc/pid/mounts
      or /proc/pid/mountinfo may then corrupt one bit of kernel memory, often
      in a page table (causing "Bad swap" or "Bad page map" warning or "Bad
      pagetable" oops), sometimes in a vm_area_struct or rbnode or somewhere
      worse.  "mpol=prefer" and "mpol=prefer:Node" are equally toxic.
      Recent NUMA enhancements are not to blame: this dates back to 2.6.35,
      when commit e17f74af "mempolicy: don't call mpol_set_nodemask() when
      no_context" skipped mpol_parse_str()'s call to mpol_set_nodemask(),
      which used to initialize v.preferred_node, or set MPOL_F_LOCAL in flags.
      With slab poisoning, you can then rely on mpol_to_str() to set the bit
      for node 0x6b6b, probably in the next page above the caller's stack.
      mpol_parse_str() is only called from shmem_parse_options(): no_context
      is always true, so call it unused for now, and remove !no_context code.
      Set v.nodes or v.preferred_node or MPOL_F_LOCAL as mpol_to_str() might
      expect.  Then mpol_to_str() can ignore its no_context argument also,
      the mpol being appropriately initialized whether contextualized or not.
      Rename its no_context unused too, and let subsequent patch remove them
      (that's not needed for stable backporting, which would involve rejects).
      I don't understand why MPOL_LOCAL is described as a pseudo-policy:
      it's a reasonable policy which suffers from a confusing implementation
      in terms of MPOL_PREFERRED with MPOL_F_LOCAL.  I believe this would be
      much more robust if MPOL_LOCAL were recognized in switch statements
      throughout, MPOL_F_LOCAL deleted, and MPOL_PREFERRED use the (possibly
      empty) nodes mask like everyone else, instead of its preferred_node
      variant (I presume an optimization from the days before MPOL_LOCAL).
      But that would take me too long to get right and fully tested.

      epoll: prevent missed events on EPOLL_CTL_MOD · 128dd175
      Eric Wong authored
      EPOLL_CTL_MOD sets the interest mask before calling f_op->poll() to
      ensure events are not missed.  Since the modifications to the interest
      mask are not protected by the same lock as ep_poll_callback, we need to
      ensure the change is visible to other CPUs calling ep_poll_callback.
      We also need to ensure f_op->poll() has an up-to-date view of past
      events which occured before we modified the interest mask.  So this
      barrier also pairs with the barrier in wq_has_sleeper().
      This should guarantee either ep_poll_callback or f_op->poll() (or both)
      will notice the readiness of a recently-ready/modified item.

      Axel Lin authored
      Otherwise, WDIOC_GETTIMEOUT returns wrong value if set_timeout fails.
      This patch also removes unnecessary ret variable in da9055_wdt_ping function.
