      ARM: 7299/1: ftrace: clear zero bit in reported IPs for Thumb-2 · d68133b5
      Rabin Vincent authored
      The dynamic ftrace ops startup test currently fails on Thumb-2 kernels:
       Testing tracer function: PASSED
       Testing dynamic ftrace: PASSED
       Testing dynamic ftrace ops #1: (0 0 0 0 0) FAILED!
      This is because while the addresses in the mcount records do not have
      the zero bit set, the IP reported by the mcount call does have it set
      (because it is copied from the LR).  This mismatch causes the ops
      filtering in ftrace_ops_list_func() to not call the relevant tracers.
      Fix this by clearing the zero bit before adjusting the LR for the mcount
      instruction size.  Also, combine the mov+sub into a single sub

      Kernel: Audit Support For The ARM Platform · 29ef73b7
      Nathaniel Husted authored
      This patch provides functionality to audit system call events on the
      ARM platform. The implementation was based off the structure of the
      MIPS platform and information in this
      mailing list thread. The required audit_syscall_exit and
      audit_syscall_entry checks were added to ptrace using the standard
      registers for system call values (r0 through r3). A thread information
      flag was added for auditing (TIF_SYSCALL_AUDIT) and a meta-flag was
      added (_TIF_SYSCALL_WORK) to simplify modifications to the syscall
      entry/exit. Now, if either the TRACE flag is set or the AUDIT flag is
      set, the syscall_trace function will be executed. The prober changes
      were made to Kconfig to allow CONFIG_AUDITSYSCALL to be enabled.
      Due to platform availability limitations, this patch was only tested
      on the Android platform running the modified "android-goldfish-2.6.29"
      kernel. A test compile was performed using Code Sourcery's
      cross-compilation toolset and the current linux-3.0 stable kernel. The
      changes compile without error. I'm hoping, due to the simple modifications,
      the patch is "obviously correct".

      ARM: 6952/1: fix lockdep warning of "unannotated irqs-off" · 9fc2552a
      Ming Lei authored
      This patch fixes the lockdep warning of "unannotated irqs-off"[1].
      After entering __irq_usr, arm core will disable interrupt automatically,
      but __irq_usr does not annotate the irq disable, so lockdep may complain
      the warning if it has chance to check this in irq handler.
      This patch adds trace_hardirqs_off in __irq_usr before entering irq_handler
      to handle the irq, also calls ret_to_user_from_irq to avoid calling
      disable_irq again.
      This is also a fix for irq off tracer.

      arm: fix really nasty sigreturn bug · 653d48b2
      Al Viro authored
      If a signal hits us outside of a syscall and another gets delivered
      when we are in sigreturn (e.g. because it had been in sa_mask for
      the first one and got sent to us while we'd been in the first handler),
      we have a chance of returning from the second handler to location one
      insn prior to where we ought to return.  If r0 happens to contain -513
      (-ERESTARTNOINTR), sigreturn will get confused into doing restart
      syscall song and dance.
      Incredible joy to debug, since it manifests as random, infrequent and
      very hard to reproduce double execution of instructions in userland
      The fix is simple - mark it "don't bother with restarts" in wrapper,
      i.e. set r8 to 0 in sys_sigreturn and sys_rt_sigreturn wrappers,
      suppressing the syscall restart handling on return from these guys.
      They can't legitimately return a restart-worthy error anyway.

      ARM: prevent multiple syscall restarts · b2b163bb
      Russell King authored
      Al Viro reports that calling "sys_sigsuspend(-ERESTARTNOHAND, 0, 0)"
      with two signals coming and being handled in kernel space results
      in the syscall restart being done twice.
      Avoid this by clearing the 'why' flag when we call the signal handling
      code to prevent further syscall restarts after the first.

      ARM: 5677/1: ARM support for TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK/pselect6/ppoll/epoll_pwait · 36984265
      Mikael Pettersson authored
      This patch adds support for TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK to ARM's
      signal handling, which allows to hook up the pselect6, ppoll,
      and epoll_pwait syscalls on ARM.
      Tested here with eabi userspace and a test program with a
      deliberate race between a child's exit and the parent's
      sigprocmask/select sequence. Using sys_pselect6() instead
      of sigprocmask/select reliably prevents the race.
      The other arch's support for TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK has evolved
      over time:
      In 2.6.16:
      - add TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK which parallels TIF_SIGPENDING
      - test both when checking for pending signal [changed later]
      - reimplement sys_sigsuspend() to use current->saved_sigmask,
        TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK [changed later], and -ERESTARTNOHAND;
        ditto for sys_rt_sigsuspend(), but drop private code and
        use common code via __ARCH_WANT_SYS_RT_SIGSUSPEND;
      - there are now no "extra" calls to do_signal() so its oldset
        parameter is always &current->blocked so need not be passed,
        also its return value is changed to void
      - change handle_signal() to return 0/-errno
      - change do_signal() to honor TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK:
        + get oldset from current->saved_sigmask if TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK
          is set
        + if handle_signal() was successful then clear TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK
        + if no signal was delivered and TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK is set then
          clear it and restore the sigmask
      - hook up sys_pselect6() and sys_ppoll()
      In 2.6.19:
      - hook up sys_epoll_pwait()
      In 2.6.26:
      - allow archs to override how TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK is implemented;
        default set_restore_sigmask() sets both TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK and
        TIF_SIGPENDING; archs need now just test TIF_SIGPENDING again
        when checking for pending signal work; some archs now implement
        TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK as a secondary/non-atomic thread flag bit
      - call set_restore_sigmask() in sys_sigsuspend() instead of setting
      In 2.6.29-rc:
      - kill sys_pselect7() which no arch wanted
      So for 2.6.31-rc6/ARM this patch does the following:
      - Add TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK. Use the generic set_restore_sigmask()
        which sets both TIF_SIGPENDING and TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK, so
        TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK need not claim one of the scarce low thread
        flags, and existing TIF_SIGPENDING and _TIF_WORK_MASK tests need
        not be extended for TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK.
      - sys_sigsuspend() is reimplemented to use current->saved_sigmask
        and set_restore_sigmask(), making it identical to most other archs
      - The private code for sys_rt_sigsuspend() is removed, instead
        generic code supplies it via __ARCH_WANT_SYS_RT_SIGSUSPEND.
      - sys_sigsuspend() and sys_rt_sigsuspend() no longer need a pt_regs
        parameter, so their assembly code wrappers are removed.
      - handle_signal() is changed to return 0 on success or -errno.
      - The oldset parameter to do_signal() is now redundant and removed,
        and the return value is now also redundant and changed to void.
      - do_signal() is changed to honor TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK:
        + get oldset from current->saved_sigmask if TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK
          is set
        + if handle_signal() was successful then clear TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK
        + if no signal was delivered and TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK is set then
          clear it and restore the sigmask
      - Hook up sys_pselect6, sys_ppoll, and sys_epoll_pwait.
