      x86/mm: Audit and remove any unnecessary uses of module.h · 4b599fed
      Paul Gortmaker authored
      Historically a lot of these existed because we did not have
      a distinction between what was modular code and what was providing
      support to modules via EXPORT_SYMBOL and friends.  That changed
      when we forked out support for the latter into the export.h file.
      This means we should be able to reduce the usage of module.h
      in code that is obj-y Makefile or bool Kconfig.  The advantage
      in doing so is that module.h itself sources about 15 other headers;
      adding significantly to what we feed cpp, and it can obscure what
      headers we are effectively using.
      Since module.h was the source for init.h (for __init) and for
      export.h (for EXPORT_SYMBOL) we consider each obj-y/bool instance
      for the presence of either and replace accordingly where needed.
      Note that some bool/obj-y instances remain since module.h is
      the header for some exception table entry stuff, and for things
      like __init_or_module (code that is tossed when MODULES=n).

      x86: Replace __get_cpu_var uses · 89cbc767
      Christoph Lameter authored
      __get_cpu_var() is used for multiple purposes in the kernel source. One of
      them is address calculation via the form &__get_cpu_var(x).  This calculates
      the address for the instance of the percpu variable of the current processor
      based on an offset.
      Other use cases are for storing and retrieving data from the current
      processors percpu area.  __get_cpu_var() can be used as an lvalue when
      writing data or on the right side of an assignment.
      __get_cpu_var() is defined as :
      #define __get_cpu_var(var) (*this_cpu_ptr(&(var)))
      __get_cpu_var() always only does an address determination. However, store
      and retrieve operations could use a segment prefix (or global register on
      other platforms) to avoid the address calculation.
      this_cpu_write() and this_cpu_read() can directly take an offset into a
      percpu area and use optimized assembly code to read and write per cpu
      This patch converts __get_cpu_var into either an explicit address
      calculation using this_cpu_ptr() or into a use of this_cpu operations that
      use the offset.  Thereby address calculations are avoided and less registers
      are used when code is generated.
      Transformations done to __get_cpu_var()
      1. Determine the address of the percpu instance of the current processor.
      	DEFINE_PER_CPU(int, y);
      	int *x = &__get_cpu_var(y);
          Converts to
      	int *x = this_cpu_ptr(&y);
      2. Same as #1 but this time an array structure is involved.
      	DEFINE_PER_CPU(int, y[20]);
      	int *x = __get_cpu_var(y);
          Converts to
      	int *x = this_cpu_ptr(y);
      3. Retrieve the content of the current processors instance of a per cpu
      	DEFINE_PER_CPU(int, y);
      	int x = __get_cpu_var(y)
         Converts to
      	int x = __this_cpu_read(y);
      4. Retrieve the content of a percpu struct
      	DEFINE_PER_CPU(struct mystruct, y);
      	struct mystruct x = __get_cpu_var(y);
         Converts to
      	memcpy(&x, this_cpu_ptr(&y), sizeof(x));
      5. Assignment to a per cpu variable
      	DEFINE_PER_CPU(int, y)
      	__get_cpu_var(y) = x;
         Converts to
      	__this_cpu_write(y, x);
      6. Increment/Decrement etc of a per cpu variable
      	DEFINE_PER_CPU(int, y);
         Converts to

      x86: Barf when vmalloc and kmemcheck faults happen in NMI · ebc8827f
      Frederic Weisbecker authored
      In x86, faults exit by executing the iret instruction, which then
      reenables NMIs if we faulted in NMI context. Then if a fault
      happens in NMI, another NMI can nest after the fault exits.
      But we don't yet support nested NMIs because we have only one NMI
      stack. To prevent from that, check that vmalloc and kmemcheck
      faults don't happen in this context. Most of the other kernel faults
      in NMIs can be more easily spotted by finding explicit
      copy_from,to_user() calls on review.

      kmemcheck: Test the full object in kmemcheck_is_obj_initialized() · 81fc0390
      Catalin Marinas authored
      This is a fix for bug #14845 (bugzilla.kernel.org). The update_checksum()
      function in mm/kmemleak.c calls kmemcheck_is_obj_initialised() before scanning
      an object. When KMEMCHECK_PARTIAL_OK is enabled, this function returns true.
      However, the crc32_le() reads smaller intervals (32-bit) for which
      kmemleak_is_obj_initialised() may be false leading to a kmemcheck warning.
      Note that kmemcheck_is_obj_initialized() is currently only used by
      kmemleak before scanning a memory location.

      The problem here is that kmemleak will scan partially initialized
      objects that makes kmemcheck complain. Fix that up by skipping
      uninitialized memory regions when kmemcheck is enabled.
