      ARM: 7788/1: elf: fix lpae hwcap feature reporting in proc/cpuinfo · ab8d46c0
      Tetsuyuki Kobayashi authored
      Commit a469abd0
      
       ("ARM: elf: add new hwcap for identifying atomic
      ldrd/strd instructions") added a new hwcap to identify LPAE on CPUs
      which support it. Whilst the hwcap data is correct, the string reported
      in /proc/cpuinfo actually matches on HWCAP_VFPD32, which was missing
      an entry in the string table.
      
      This patch fixes this problem by adding a "vfpd32" string at the correct
      offset, preventing us from falsely advertising LPAE on CPUs which do not
      support it.

      ARM: 7786/1: hyp: fix macro parameterisation · b60d5db6
      Mark Rutland authored
      
      
      Currently, compare_cpu_mode_with_primary uses a mixture of macro
      arguments and hardcoded registers, and does so incorrectly, as it
      stores (__boot_cpu_mode_offset | BOOT_CPU_MODE_MISMATCH) to
      (__boot_cpu_mode + &__boot_cpu_mode_offset), which could corrupt an
      arbitrary portion of memory.
      
      This patch fixes up compare_cpu_mode_with_primary to use the macro
      arguments, correctly updating __boot_cpu_mode.

      ARM: 7785/1: mm: restrict early_alloc to section-aligned memory · c65b7e98
      Russell King authored
      
      
      When map_lowmem() runs, and processes a memory bank whose start or end
      is not section-aligned, memory must be allocated to store the 2nd-level
      page tables. Those allocations are made by calling memblock_alloc().
      
      At this point, the only memory that is free *and* mapped is memory which
      has already been mapped by map_lowmem() itself. For this reason, we must
      calculate the first point at which map_lowmem() will need to allocate
      memory, and set the memblock allocation limit to a lower address, so that
      memblock_alloc() is guaranteed to return memory that is already mapped.
      
      This patch enhances sanity_check_meminfo() to calculate that memory
      address, and pass it to memblock_set_current_limit(), rather than just
      assuming the limit is arm_lowmem_limit.
      
      The algorithm applied is:
      
      * Default memblock_limit to arm_lowmem_limit in the absence of any other
        limit; arm_lowmem_limit is the highest memory that is mapped by
        map_lowmem().
      
      * While walking the list of memblocks, if the start of a block is not
        aligned, 2nd-level page tables will need to be allocated to map the
        first few pages of the block. Hence, the memblock_limit must be before
        the start of the block.
      
      * Similarly, if the end of any block is not aligned, 2nd-level page
        tables will need to be allocated to map the last few pages of the
        block. Hence, the memblock_limit must point at the end of the block,
        rounded down to section-alignment.
      
      * The memory blocks are assumed to be sorted in address order, so the
        first unaligned block start or end is used to set the limit.
      
      With this algorithm, the start or end of almost any bank can be non-
      section-aligned. The only exception is that the start of bank 0 must
      be section-aligned, since otherwise memory would need to be allocated
      when mapping the start of bank 0, which occurs before any free memory
      is mapped.

      ARM: 7784/1: mm: ensure SMP alternates assemble to exactly 4 bytes with Thumb-2 · bf3f0f33
      Will Deacon authored
      Commit ae8a8b95
      
       ("ARM: 7691/1: mm: kill unused TLB_CAN_READ_FROM_L1_CACHE
      and use ALT_SMP instead") added early function returns for page table
      cache flushing operations on ARMv7 SMP CPUs.
      
      Unfortunately, when targetting Thumb-2, these `mov pc, lr' sequences
      assemble to 2 bytes which can lead to corruption of the instruction
      stream after code patching.
      
      This patch fixes the alternates to use wide (32-bit) instructions for
      Thumb-2, therefore ensuring that the patching code works correctly.

      ARM: document DEBUG_UNCOMPRESS Kconfig option · b6992fa9
      Russell King authored
      
      
      This non-user visible option lacked any kind of documentation.  This
      is quite common for non-user visible options; certian people can't
      understand the point of documenting such options with help text.
      
      However, here we have a case in point: developers don't understand the
      option either, as they were thinking that when the option is not set,
      the decompressor should produce no output what so ever.  This is
      incorrect, as the purpose of this option is to control whether a
      multiplatform kernel uses the kernel debugging macros to produce
      output or not.
      
      So let's document this via help rather than commentry to prevent others
      falling into this misunderstanding.

      Pull ACPI video support fixes from Rafael Wysocki:
       "I'm sending a separate pull request for this as it may be somewhat
        controversial.  The breakage addressed here is not really new and the
        fixes may not satisfy all users of the affected systems, but we've had
        so much back and forth dance in this area over the last several weeks
        that I think it's time to actually make some progress.
      
        The source of the problem is that about a year ago we started to tell
        BIOSes that we're compatible with Windows 8, which we really need to
        do, because some systems shipping with Windows 8 are tested with it
        and nothing else, so if we tell their BIOSes that we aren't compatible
        with Windows 8, we expose our users to untested BIOS/AML code paths.
      
        However, as it turns out, some Windows 8-specific AML code paths are
        not tested either, because Windows 8 actually doesn't use the ACPI
        methods containing them, so if we declare Windows 8 compatibility and
        attempt to use those ACPI methods, things break.  That occurs mostly
        in the backlight support area where in particular the _BCM and _BQC
        methods are plain unusable on some systems if the OS declares Windows
        8 compatibility.
      
        [ The additional twist is that they actually become usable if the OS
          says it is not compatible with Windows 8, but that may cause
          problems to show up elsewhere ]
      
        Investigation carried out by Matthew Garrett indicates that what
        Windows 8 does about backlight is to leave backlight control up to
        individual graphics drivers.  At least there's evidence that it does
        that if the Intel graphics driver is used, so we've decided to follow
        Windows 8 in that respect and allow i915 to control backlight (Daniel
        likes that part).
      
        The first commit from Aaron Lu makes ACPICA export the variable from
        which we can infer whether or not the BIOS believes that we are
        compatible with Windows 8.
      
        The second commit from Matthew Garrett prepares the ACPI video driver
        by making it initialize the ACPI backlight even if it is not going to
        be used afterward (that is needed for backlight control to work on
        Thinkpads).
      
        The third commit implements the actual workaround making i915 take
        over backlight control if the firmware thinks it's dealing with
        Windows 8 and is based on the work of multiple developers, including
        Matthew Garrett, Chun-Yi Lee, Seth Forshee, and Aaron Lu.
      
        The final commit from Aaron Lu makes us follow Windows 8 by informing
        the firmware through the _DOS method that it should not carry out
        automatic brightness changes, so that brightness can be controlled by
        GUI.
      
        Hopefully, this approach will allow us to avoid using blacklists of
        systems that should not declare Windows 8 compatibility just to avoid
        backlight control problems in the future.
      
         - Change from Aaron Lu makes ACPICA export a variable which can be
           used by driver code to determine whether or not the BIOS believes
           that we are compatible with Windows 8.
      
         - Change from Matthew Garrett makes the ACPI video driver initialize
           the ACPI backlight even if it is not going to be used afterward
           (that is needed for backlight control to work on Thinkpads).
      
         - Fix from Rafael J Wysocki implements Windows 8 backlight support
           workaround making i915 take over bakclight control if the firmware
           thinks it's dealing with Windows 8.  Based on the work of multiple
           developers including Matthew Garrett, Chun-Yi Lee, Seth Forshee,
           and Aaron Lu.
      
         - Fix from Aaron Lu makes the kernel follow Windows 8 by informing
           the firmware through the _DOS method that it should not carry out
           automatic brightness changes, so that brightness can be controlled
           by GUI"

      When we try to open a file with O_TMPFILE flag, we will trigger a bug.
      The root cause is that in ext4_orphan_add() we check ->i_nlink == 0 and
      this check always fails because we set ->i_nlink = 1 in
      inode_init_always().  We can use the following program to trigger it:
      
      int main(int argc, char *argv[])
      {
      	int fd;
      
      	fd = open(argv[1], O_TMPFILE, 0666);
      	if (fd < 0) {
      		perror("open ");
      		return -1;
      	}
      	close(fd);
      	return 0;

      Here we couldn't call clear_nlink() directly because in d_tmpfile() we
      will call inode_dec_link_count() to decrease ->i_nlink.  So this commit
      tries to call d_tmpfile() before ext4_orphan_add() to fix this problem.

       "Here are a few iio driver fixes for 3.11-rc2.  They are still spread
        across drivers/iio and drivers/staging/iio so they are coming in
        through this tree.
      
        I've also removed the drivers/staging/csr/ driver as the developers
        who originally sent it to me have moved on to other companies, and CSR
        still will not send us the specs for the device, making the driver
        pretty much obsolete and impossible to fix up.  Deleting it now
        prevents people from sending in lots of tiny codingsyle fixes that
        will never go anywhere.
      
        It also helps to offset the large lustre filesystem merge that
        happened in 3.11-rc1 in the overall 3.11.0 diffstat.  :)"

      livelock avoidance in sget() · acfec9a5
      Al Viro authored
      
      
      Eric Sandeen has found a nasty livelock in sget() - take a mount(2) about
      to fail.  The superblock is on ->fs_supers, ->s_umount is held exclusive,
      ->s_active is 1.  Along comes two more processes, trying to mount the same
      thing; sget() in each is picking that superblock, bumping ->s_count and
      trying to grab ->s_umount.  ->s_active is 3 now.  Original mount(2)
      finally gets to deactivate_locked_super() on failure; ->s_active is 2,
      superblock is still ->fs_supers because shutdown will *not* happen until
      ->s_active hits 0.  ->s_umount is dropped and now we have two processes
      chasing each other:
      s_active = 2, A acquired ->s_umount, B blocked
      A sees that the damn thing is stillborn, does deactivate_locked_super()
      s_active = 1, A drops ->s_umount, B gets it
      A restarts the search and finds the same superblock.  And bumps it ->s_active.
      s_active = 2, B holds ->s_umount, A blocked on trying to get it
      ... and we are in the earlier situation with A and B switched places.
      
      The root cause, of course, is that ->s_active should not grow until we'd
      got MS_BORN.  Then failing ->mount() will have deactivate_locked_super()
      shut the damn thing down.  Fortunately, it's easy to do - the key point
      is that grab_super() is called only for superblocks currently on ->fs_supers,
      so it can bump ->s_count and grab ->s_umount first, then check MS_BORN and
      bump ->s_active; we must never increment ->s_count for superblocks past
      ->kill_sb(), but grab_super() is never called for those.
      
      The bug is pretty old; we would've caught it by now, if not for accidental
      exclusion between sget() for block filesystems; the things like cgroup or
      e.g. mtd-based filesystems don't have anything of that sort, so they get
      bitten.  The right way to deal with that is obviously to fix sget()...
