      ARM: 8692/1: mm: abort uaccess retries upon fatal signal · 746a272e
      Mark Rutland authored
      When there's a fatal signal pending, arm's do_page_fault()
      implementation returns 0. The intent is that we'll return to the
      faulting userspace instruction, delivering the signal on the way.
      However, if we take a fatal signal during fixing up a uaccess, this
      results in a return to the faulting kernel instruction, which will be
      instantly retried, resulting in the same fault being taken forever. As
      the task never reaches userspace, the signal is not delivered, and the
      task is left unkillable. While the task is stuck in this state, it can
      inhibit the forward progress of the system.
      To avoid this, we must ensure that when a fatal signal is pending, we
      apply any necessary fixup for a faulting kernel instruction. Thus we
      will return to an error path, and it is up to that code to make forward
      progress towards delivering the fatal signal.

      mm/fault, arch: Use pagefault_disable() to check for disabled pagefaults in the handler · 70ffdb93
      David Hildenbrand authored
      Introduce faulthandler_disabled() and use it to check for irq context and
      disabled pagefaults (via pagefault_disable()) in the pagefault handlers.
      Please note that we keep the in_atomic() checks in place - to detect
      whether in irq context (in which case preemption is always properly
      In contrast, preempt_disable() should never be used to disable pagefaults.
      With !CONFIG_PREEMPT_COUNT, preempt_disable() doesn't modify the preempt
      counter, and therefore the result of in_atomic() differs.
      We validate that condition by using might_fault() checks when calling
      Therefore, add a comment to faulthandler_disabled(), describing why this
      is needed.
      faulthandler_disabled() and pagefault_disable() are defined in
      linux/uaccess.h, so let's properly add that include to all relevant files.
      This patch is based on a patch from Thomas Gleixner.

      perf: Remove the nmi parameter from the swevent and overflow interface · a8b0ca17
      Peter Zijlstra authored
      The nmi parameter indicated if we could do wakeups from the current
      context, if not, we would set some state and self-IPI and let the
      resulting interrupt do the wakeup.
      For the various event classes:
        - hardware: nmi=0; PMI is in fact an NMI or we run irq_work_run from
          the PMI-tail (ARM etc.)
        - tracepoint: nmi=0; since tracepoint could be from NMI context.
        - software: nmi=[0,1]; some, like the schedule thing cannot
          perform wakeups, and hence need 0.
      As one can see, there is very little nmi=1 usage, and the down-side of
      not using it is that on some platforms some software events can have a
      jiffy delay in wakeup (when arch_irq_work_raise isn't implemented).
      The up-side however is that we can remove the nmi parameter and save a
      bunch of conditionals in fast paths.

      ARM: pgtable: switch order of Linux vs hardware page tables · d30e45ee
      Russell King authored
      This switches the ordering of the Linux vs hardware page tables in
      each page, thereby eliminating some of the arithmetic in the page
      table walks.  As we now place the Linux page table at the beginning
      of the page, we can deal with the offset in the pgt by simply masking
      it away, along with the other control bits.
      This also makes the arithmetic all be positive, rather than a mixture.
