      Linus Torvalds authored
      Pull parisc fixes from Helge Deller:
      
       - Fix printk time stamps on SMP systems which got wrong due to a patch
         which was added during the merge window
      
       - Fix two bugs in the stack backtrace code: Races in module unloading
         and possible invalid accesses to memory due to wrong instruction
         decoding (Mikulas Patocka)
      
       - Fix userspace crash when syscalls access invalid unaligned userspace
         addresses.  Those syscalls will now return EFAULT as expected.

      devpts: Make each mount of devpts an independent filesystem. · eedf265a
      Eric W. Biederman authored
      
      
      The /dev/ptmx device node is changed to lookup the directory entry "pts"
      in the same directory as the /dev/ptmx device node was opened in.  If
      there is a "pts" entry and that entry is a devpts filesystem /dev/ptmx
      uses that filesystem.  Otherwise the open of /dev/ptmx fails.
      
      The DEVPTS_MULTIPLE_INSTANCES configuration option is removed, so that
      userspace can now safely depend on each mount of devpts creating a new
      instance of the filesystem.
      
      Each mount of devpts is now a separate and equal filesystem.
      
      Reserved ttys are now available to all instances of devpts where the
      mounter is in the initial mount namespace.
      
      A new vfs helper path_pts is introduced that finds a directory entry
      named "pts" in the directory of the passed in path, and changes the
      passed in path to point to it.  The helper path_pts uses a function
      path_parent_directory that was factored out of follow_dotdot.
      
      In the implementation of devpts:
       - devpts_mnt is killed as it is no longer meaningful if all mounts of
         devpts are equal.
       - pts_sb_from_inode is replaced by just inode->i_sb as all cached
         inodes in the tty layer are now from the devpts filesystem.
       - devpts_add_ref is rolled into the new function devpts_ptmx.  And the
         unnecessary inode hold is removed.
       - devpts_del_ref is renamed devpts_release and reduced to just a
         deacrivate_super.
       - The newinstance mount option continues to be accepted but is now
         ignored.
      
      In devpts_fs.h definitions for when !CONFIG_UNIX98_PTYS are removed as
      they are never used.
      
      Documentation/filesystems/devices.txt is updated to describe the current
      situation.
      
      This has been verified to work properly on openwrt-15.05, centos5,
      centos6, centos7, debian-6.0.2, debian-7.9, debian-8.2, ubuntu-14.04.3,
      ubuntu-15.10, fedora23, magia-5, mint-17.3, opensuse-42.1,
      slackware-14.1, gentoo-20151225 (13.0?), archlinux-2015-12-01.  With the
      caveat that on centos6 and on slackware-14.1 that there wind up being
      two instances of the devpts filesystem mounted on /dev/pts, the lower
      copy does not end up getting used.

      parisc: Fix pagefault crash in unaligned __get_user() call · 8b78f260

      any other information:

       Backtrace:
        [<00000000402d4608>] compat_SyS_clock_adjtime+0x40/0xc0
        [<0000000040205024>] syscall_exit+0x0/0x14
      
      This means the userspace program clock_adjtime called the clock_adjtime()
      syscall and then crashed inside the compat_get_timex() function.
      Syscalls should never crash programs, but instead return EFAULT.
      
      The IIR register contains the executed instruction, which disassebles
      into "ldw 0(sr3,r5),r9".
      This load-word instruction is part of __get_user() which tried to read the word
      at %r5/IOR (0xfa6f7fff). This means the unaligned handler jumped in.  The
      unaligned handler is able to emulate all ldw instructions, but it fails if it
      fails to read the source e.g. because of page fault.
      
      The following program reproduces the problem:
      
      #define _GNU_SOURCE
      #include <unistd.h>
      #include <sys/syscall.h>
      #include <sys/mman.h>
      
      int main(void) {
              /* allocate 8k */
              char *ptr = mmap(NULL, 2*4096, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE, MAP_PRIVATE|MAP_ANONYMOUS, -1, 0);
              /* free second half (upper 4k) and make it invalid. */
              munmap(ptr+4096, 4096);
              /* syscall where first int is unaligned and clobbers into invalid memory region */
              /* syscall should return EFAULT */
              return syscall(__NR_clock_adjtime, 0, ptr+4095);
      }
      
      To fix this issue we simply need to check if the faulting instruction address
      is in the exception fixup table when the unaligned handler failed. If it
      is, call the fixup routine instead of crashing.
      
      While looking at the unaligned handler I found another issue as well: The
      target register should not be modified if the handler was unsuccessful.
