      x86: pte_protnone() and pmd_protnone() must check entry is not present · e3a1f6ca
      David Vrabel authored
      Since _PAGE_PROTNONE aliases _PAGE_GLOBAL it is only valid if
      _PAGE_PRESENT is clear.  Make pte_protnone() and pmd_protnone() check
      for this.
      
      This fixes a 64-bit Xen PV guest regression introduced by 8a0516ed
      
      
      ("mm: convert p[te|md]_numa users to p[te|md]_protnone_numa").  Any
      userspace process would endlessly fault.
      
      In a 64-bit PV guest, userspace page table entries have _PAGE_GLOBAL set
      by the hypervisor.  This meant that any fault on a present userspace
      entry (e.g., a write to a read-only mapping) would be misinterpreted as
      a NUMA hinting fault and the fault would not be correctly handled,
      resulting in the access endlessly faulting.

           from 3.19.

           Filipe continues hammering on corner cases in fsync and others
      
        This all was held up a little trying to track down a use-after-free in
        btrfs raid5/6.  It's not clear yet if this is just made easier to
        trigger with this pull or if its a new bug from the raid5/6 cleanups.
        Dave Sterba is the only one to trigger it so far, but he has a
        consistent way to reproduce, so we'll get it nailed shortly"

      debug: prevent entering debug mode on panic/exception. · 5516fd7b
      Colin Cross authored
      
      
      On non-developer devices, kgdb prevents the device from rebooting
      after a panic.
      
      Incase of panics and exceptions, to allow the device to reboot, prevent
      entering debug mode to avoid getting stuck waiting for the user to
      interact with debugger.
      
      To avoid entering the debugger on panic/exception without any extra
      configuration, panic_timeout is being used which can be set via
      /proc/sys/kernel/panic at run time and CONFIG_PANIC_TIMEOUT sets the
      default value.
      
      Setting panic_timeout indicates that the user requested machine to
      perform unattended reboot after panic. We dont want to get stuck waiting
      for the user input incase of panic.

      kdb: Provide forward search at more prompt · fb6daa75
      Daniel Thompson authored
      
      
      Currently kdb allows the output of comamnds to be filtered using the
      | grep feature. This is useful but does not permit the output emitted
      shortly after a string match to be examined without wading through the
      entire unfiltered output of the command. Such a feature is particularly
      useful to navigate function traces because these traces often have a
      useful trigger string *before* the point of interest.
      
      This patch reuses the existing filtering logic to introduce a simple
      forward search to kdb that can be triggered from the more prompt.

      kdb: Fix a prompt management bug when using | grep · ab08e464
      Daniel Thompson authored
      
      
      Currently when the "| grep" feature is used to filter the output of a
      command then the prompt is not displayed for the subsequent command.
      Likewise any characters typed by the user are also not echoed to the
      display. This rather disconcerting problem eventually corrects itself
      when the user presses Enter and the kdb_grepping_flag is cleared as
      kdb_parse() tries to make sense of whatever they typed.
      
      This patch resolves the problem by moving the clearing of this flag
      from the middle of command processing to the beginning.

      kdb: Remove stack dump when entering kgdb due to NMI · 54543881
      Daniel Thompson authored
      
      
      Issuing a stack dump feels ergonomically wrong when entering due to NMI.
      
      Entering due to NMI is normally a reaction to a user request, either the
      NMI button on a server or a "magic knock" on a UART. Therefore the
      backtrace behaviour on entry due to NMI should be like SysRq-g (no stack
      dump) rather than like oops.
      
      Note also that the stack dump does not offer any information that
      cannot be trivial retrieved using the 'bt' command.

      kdb: Avoid printing KERN_ levels to consoles · f7d4ca8b
      Daniel Thompson authored
      Currently when kdb traps printk messages then the raw log level prefix
      (consisting of '\001' followed by a numeral) does not get stripped off
      before the message is issued to the various I/O handlers supported by
      kdb. This causes annoying visual noise as well as causing problems
      grepping for ^. It is also a change of behaviour compared to normal usage
      of printk() usage. For example <SysRq>-h ends up with different output to
      that of kdb's "sr h".
      
      This patch addresses the problem by stripping log levels from messages
      before they are issued to the I/O handlers. printk() which can also
      act as an i/o handler in some cases is special cased; if the caller
      provided a log level then the prefix will be preserved when sent to
      printk().
      
      The addition of non-printable characters to the output of kdb commands is a
      regression, albeit and extremely elderly one, introduced by commit
      04d2c8c8
      
       ("printk: convert the format for KERN_<LEVEL> to a 2 byte
      pattern"). Note also that this patch does *not* restore the original
      behaviour from v3.5. Instead it makes printk() from within a kdb command
      display the message without any prefix (i.e. like printk() normally does).
