2011-04-15[PARISC] only make executable areas executableJames Bottomley1-0/+3
Currently parisc has the whole kernel marked as RWX, meaning any kernel page at all is eligible to be executed. This can cause a theoretical problem on systems with combined I/D TLB because the act of referencing a page causes a TLB insertion with an executable bit. This TLB entry may be used by the CPU as the basis for speculating the page into the I-Cache. If this speculated page is subsequently used for a user process, there is the possibility we will get a stale I-cache line picked up as the binary executes. As a point of good practise, only mark actual kernel text pages as executable. The same has to be done for init_text pages, but they're converted to data pages (and the I-Cache flushed) when the init memory is released. Signed-off-by: James Bottomley <James.Bottomley@suse.de>

2011-01-15eliminate special FLUSH flag from page tableJames Bottomley1-58/+3
This was used to flush a region even if the page table entry had been cleared. In theory this was never necessary, but now we've switched to alias based flushing, the whole set of code associated with it can be dumped.

2011-01-15parisc: flush pages through tmpalias spaceJames Bottomley1-52/+142
The kernel has an 8M tmpailas space (originally designed for copying and clearing pages but now only used for clearing). The idea is to place zeros into the cache above a physical page rather than into the physical page and flush the cache, because often the zeros end up being replaced quickly anyway. We can also use the tmpalias space for flushing a page. The difference here is that we have to do tmpalias processing in the non access data and instruction traps. The principle is the same: as long as we know the physical address and have a virtual address congruent to the real one, the flush will be effective. In order to use the tmpalias space, the icache miss path has to be enhanced to check for the alias region to make the fic instruction effective.

2010-05-30parisc: Remove unnecessary macros from entry.SJohn David Anglin1-33/+7
The EXTR, DEP and DEPI macros are unnecessary. There are PA 1.X pneumonics available with the same functionality, and the DEP and DEPI macros conflict with assembler pneumonics.

2009-09-27parisc: stop using task->ptrace for {single,block}step flagsKyle McMartin1-10/+11
task->ptrace flags belong to generic code, so instead thief some TIF_ bits to use. Somewhat risky conversion of code to test TASK_FLAGS instead of TASK_PTRACE in assembly, but it looks alright in the end. Signed-off-by: Kyle McMartin <kyle@mcmartin.ca>
2009-09-02KEYS: Extend TIF_NOTIFY_RESUME to (almost) all architectures [try #6]David Howells1-1/+1
Implement TIF_NOTIFY_RESUME for most of those architectures in which isn't yet available, and, whilst we're at it, have it call the appropriate tracehook. After this patch, blackfin, m68k* and xtensa still lack support and need alteration of assembly code to make it work. Resume notification can then be used (by a later patch) to install a new session keyring on the parent of a process.

2009-03-31parisc: add ftrace (function and graph tracer) functionalityHelge Deller1-0/+27
This patch adds the ftrace debugging functionality to the parisc kernel. It will currently only work with 64bit kernels, because the gcc options -pg and -ffunction-sections can't be enabled at the same time and -ffunction-sections is still needed to be able to link 32bit kernels.

Introduce new convert_for_tlb_insert20 macro and use it to replace assembler statements with hardcoded constants.

2009-03-31parisc: use constants instead of numbers in assemblyHelge Deller1-4/+4
A few small fixups: * _PAGE_SIZE_ENCODING_DEFAULT is wrong here, as one might assume that it's possible to define the page size that way. This is wrong. Use 0 instead. * use constants instead of hardcoded numerical values in depi and extru while building the PFN out of the pte entry * use SHRREG instead of extru (iitlba expects the PFN at bits {7..26}) Still wondering why we can use the same register (pte) as extru source and target register, but it seems to work on PA1.1 and PA2.0...

2005-10-21[PARISC] Fix the alloc_slabmgmt panicJames Bottomley1-0/+2
Fix the alloc_slabmgmt panic Hopefully this should also fix a lot of other intermittent kernel bugs. The problem has been around since 2.6.9-rc2-pa6 when we allowed floating point registers to be used in kernel code. The essence of the problem is that gcc prefers to use floating point for integer divides and multiples. Further, it can rely on the values in the no clobber fp regs being correct across a function call. Unfortunately, our task switch function only saves the integer no clobber registers, not the fp ones, so if gcc makes a function call to any function in the kernel which could sleep, the values it is relying on in any no clobber floating point register may be lost. In the case of alloc_slabmgmt, the value of the page offset is being stored in %fr12 across a call to kmem_getpages(), which sleeps if no pages are available. Thus, the offset can be trashed and the slab code can end up with a completely bogus address leading to corruption. Kudos to Randolph who came up with the program to trip this problem at will and thus allowed it to be tracked and fixed.

Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!
