2012-06-08init: Drop initcall level outputBorislav Petkov1-6/+1
9fb48c744ba6a ("params: add 3rd arg to option handler callback signature") added similar lines to dmesg: initlevel:0=early, 4 registered initcalls initlevel:1=core, 31 registered initcalls initlevel:2=postcore, 11 registered initcalls initlevel:3=arch, 7 registered initcalls initlevel:4=subsys, 40 registered initcalls initlevel:5=fs, 30 registered initcalls initlevel:6=device, 250 registered initcalls initlevel:7=late, 35 registered initcalls but they don't contain any info for the general user staring at dmesg. I'm very doubtful the count of initcalls registered per level helps anyone so drop that output completely.

2012-06-08module_param: stop double-calling parameters.Rusty Russell1-1/+1
Commit 026cee0086fe1df4cf74691cf273062cc769617d "params: <level>_initcall-like kernel parameters" set old-style module parameters to level 0. And we call those level 0 calls where we used to, early in start_kernel(). We also loop through the initcall levels and call the levelled module_params before the corresponding initcall. Unfortunately level 0 is early_init(), so we call the standard module_param calls twice. (Turns out most things don't care, but at least ubi.mtd does). Change the level to -1 for standard module_param calls. Reported-by: Benoît Thébaudeau <benoit.thebaudeau@advansee.com> Signed-off-by: Rusty Russell <rusty@rustcorp.com.au> Cc: stable@kernel.org

2012-05-31init: disable sparse checking of the mount.o source filesH Hartley Sweeten5-8/+57
The init/mount.o source files produce a number of sparse warnings of the type: warning: incorrect type in argument 1 (different address spaces) expected char [noderef] <asn:1>*dev_name got char *name This is due to the syscalls expecting some of the arguments to be user pointers but they are being passed as kernel pointers. This is harmless but adds a lot of noise to a sparse build. To limit the noise just disable the sparse checking in the relevant source files, but still display a warning so that the user knows this has been done. Since the sparse checking has been disabled we can also remove the __user __force casts that are scattered thru the source.

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/ebiederm/user-namespace Pull user namespace enhancements from Eric Biederman: "This is a course correction for the user namespace, so that we can reach an inexpensive, maintainable, and reasonably complete implementation. Highlights: - Config guards make it impossible to enable the user namespace and code that has not been converted to be user namespace safe. - Use of the new kuid_t type ensures the if you somehow get past the config guards the kernel will encounter type errors if you enable user namespaces and attempt to compile in code whose permission checks have not been updated to be user namespace safe. - All uids from child user namespaces are mapped into the initial user namespace before they are processed. Removing the need to add an additional check to see if the user namespace of the compared uids remains the same. - With the user namespaces compiled out the performance is as good or better than it is today. - For most operations absolutely nothing changes performance or operationally with the user namespace enabled. - The worst case performance I could come up with was timing 1 billion cache cold stat operations with the user namespace code enabled. This went from 156s to 164s on my laptop (or 156ns to 164ns per stat operation). - (uid_t)-1 and (gid_t)-1 are reserved as an internal error value. Most uid/gid setting system calls treat these value specially anyway so attempting to use -1 as a uid would likely cause entertaining failures in userspace. - If setuid is called with a uid that can not be mapped setuid fails. I have looked at sendmail, login, ssh and every other program I could think of that would call setuid and they all check for and handle the case where setuid fails. - If stat or a similar system call is called from a context in which we can not map a uid we lie and return overflowuid. The LFS experience suggests not lying and returning an error code might be better, but the historical precedent with uids is different and I can not think of anything that would break by lying about a uid we can't map. - Capabilities are localized to the current user namespace making it safe to give the initial user in a user namespace all capabilities.

This is achieved by the architecture enabling BUILDTIME_EXTABLE_SORT. This option is enabled for x86 and MIPS currently. On x86 a number of fixes and changes were needed to allow build-time sorting of the exception table, in particular a relocation invariant exception table format was needed. This required the abstracting out of exception table protocol and the removal of 20 years of accumulated assumptions about the x86 exception table format. While at it, this tree also cleans up various other aspects of exception handling, such as early(er) exception handling for rdmsr_safe() et al.

2012-05-21timers: Fixup the Kconfig consolidation falloutThomas Gleixner1-0/+1
Sigh, I missed to check which architecture Kconfig files actually include the core Kconfig file. There are a few which did not. So we broke them. Instead of adding the includes to those, we are better off to move the include to init/Kconfig like we did already with irqs and others. This does not change anything for the architectures using the old style periodic timer mode. It just solves the build wreckage there. For those architectures which use the clock events infrastructure it moves the include of the core Kconfig file to "General setup" which is a way more logical place than having it at random locations specified by the architecture specific Kconfigs.

2012-05-21Fix blocking allocations called very early during bootupLinus Torvalds1-3/+4
During early boot, when the scheduler hasn't really been fully set up, we really can't do blocking allocations because with certain (dubious) configurations the "might_resched()" calls can actually result in scheduling events. We could just make such users always use GFP_ATOMIC, but quite often the code that does the allocation isn't really aware of the fact that the scheduler isn't up yet, and forcing that kind of random knowledge on the initialization code is just annoying and not good for anybody. And we actually have a the 'gfp_allowed_mask' exactly for this reason: it's just that the kernel init sequence happens to set it to allow blocking allocations much too early. So move the 'gfp_allowed_mask' initialization from 'start_kernel()' (which is some of the earliest init code, and runs with preemption disabled for good reasons) into 'kernel_init()'. kernel_init() is run in the newly created thread that will become the 'init' process, as opposed to the early startup code that runs within the context of what will be the first idle thread. So by the time we reach 'kernel_init()', we know that the scheduler must be at least limping along, because we've already scheduled from the idle thread into the init thread.

userns unsafe Add a new internal Kconfig option UIDGID_CONVERTED that is true when the selected Kconfig options have been converted to be user namespace safe, and guard USER_NS and guard the UIDGID_STRICT_TYPE_CHECK options with it. This keeps innocent kernel users from having the choice to enable the user namespace in the cases where it is known not to work. Most of the rest of the conversions are simple and straight forward but their sheer number means it is good not to count on having them all done and reviwed before thinking of merging this code.

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/paulmck/linux-rcu into core/rcu Pull the v3.5 RCU tree from Paul E. McKenney: 1) A set of improvements and fixes to the RCU_FAST_NO_HZ feature (with more on the way for 3.6). Posted to LKML: https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/4/23/324 (commits 1-3 and 5), https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/4/16/611 (commit 4), https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/4/30/390 (commit 6), and https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/5/4/410 (commit 7, combined with the other commits for the convenience of the tester). 2) Changes to make rcu_barrier() avoid disrupting execution of CPUs that have no RCU callbacks. Posted to LKML: https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/4/23/322. 3) A couple of commits that improve the efficiency of the interaction between preemptible RCU and the scheduler, these two being all that survived an abortive attempt to allow preemptible RCU's __rcu_read_lock() to be inlined. The full set was posted to LKML at https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/4/14/143, and the first and third patches of that set remain. 4) Lai Jiangshan's algorithmic implementation of SRCU, which includes call_srcu() and srcu_barrier(). A major feature of this new implementation is that synchronize_srcu() no longer disturbs the execution of other CPUs. This work is based on earlier implementations by Peter Zijlstra and Paul E. McKenney. Posted to LKML: https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/2/22/82. 5) A number of miscellaneous bug fixes and improvements which were posted to LKML at: https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/4/23/353 with subsequent updates posted to LKML.

2012-05-05init: don't try mounting device as nfs root unless type fully matchesSasha Levin1-1/+1
Currently, we'll try mounting any device who's major device number is UNNAMED_MAJOR as NFS root. This would happen for non-NFS devices as well (such as 9p devices) but it wouldn't cause any issues since mounting the device as NFS would fail quickly and the code proceeded to doing the proper mount: [ 101.522716] VFS: Unable to mount root fs via NFS, trying floppy. [ 101.534499] VFS: Mounted root (9p filesystem) on device 0:18. Commit 6829a048102a ("NFS: Retry mounting NFSROOT") introduced retries when mounting NFS root, which means that now we don't immediately fail and instead it takes an additional 90+ seconds until we stop retrying, which has revealed the issue this patch fixes. This meant that it would take an additional 90 seconds to boot when we're not using a device type which gets detected in order before NFS. This patch modifies the NFS type check to require device type to be 'Root_NFS' instead of requiring the device to have an UNNAMED_MAJOR major. This makes boot process cleaner since we now won't go through the NFS mounting code at all when the device isn't an NFS root ("/dev/nfs").

2012-04-30params: add 3rd arg to option handler callback signatureJim Cromie1-13/+20
Add a 3rd arg, named "doing", to unknown-options callbacks invoked from parse_args(). The arg is passed as: "Booting kernel" from start_kernel(), initcall_level_names[i] from do_initcall_level(), mod->name from load_module(), via parse_args(), parse_one() parse_args() already has the "name" parameter, which is renamed to "doing" to better reflect current uses 1,2 above. parse_args() passes it to an altered parse_one(), which now passes it down into the unknown option handler callbacks. The mod->name will be needed to handle dyndbg for loadable modules, since params passed by modprobe are not qualified (they do not have a "$modname." prefix), and by the time the unknown-param callback is called, the module name is not otherwise available. Minor tweaks: Add param-name to parse_one's pr_debug(), current message doesnt identify the param being handled, add it. Add a pr_info to print current level and level_name of the initcall, and number of registered initcalls at that level. This adds 7 lines to dmesg output, like: initlevel:6=device, 172 registered initcalls Drop "parameters" from initcall_level_names[], its unhelpful in the pr_info() added above. This array is passed into parse_args() by do_initcall_level().

2012-04-25init: fix bug where environment vars can't be passed via boot argsChris Metcalf1-12/+13
Commit 026cee0086f had the side-effect of dropping the '=' from the unknown boot arguments that are passed to init as environment variables. This is because parse_args() puts a NUL in the string where the '=' was when it passes the "param" and "val" pointers to the parsing subfunctions. Previously, unknown_bootoption() was the last parse_args() subfunction to run, and it carefully put back the '=' character. Now the ignore_unknown_bootoption() is the last one to run, and it wasn't doing the necessary repair, so the envp params ended up with the embedded NUL and were no longer seen as valid environment variables by init.

2012-04-24rcu: Reduce cache-miss initialization latencies for large systemsPaul E. McKenney1-0/+27
Commit #0209f649 (rcu: limit rcu_node leaf-level fanout) set an upper limit of 16 on the leaf-level fanout for the rcu_node tree. This was needed to reduce lock contention that was induced by the synchronization of scheduling-clock interrupts, which was in turn needed to improve energy efficiency for moderate-sized lightly loaded servers. However, reducing the leaf-level fanout means that there are more leaf-level rcu_node structures in the tree, which in turn means that RCU's grace-period initialization incurs more cache misses. This is not a problem on moderate-sized servers with only a few tens of CPUs, but becomes a major source of real-time latency spikes on systems with many hundreds of CPUs. In addition, the workloads running on these large systems tend to be CPU-bound, which eliminates the energy-efficiency advantages of synchronizing scheduling-clock interrupts. Therefore, these systems need maximal values for the rcu_node leaf-level fanout. This commit addresses this problem by introducing a new kernel parameter named RCU_FANOUT_LEAF that directly controls the leaf-level fanout. This parameter defaults to 16 to handle the common case of a moderate sized lightly loaded servers, but may be set higher on larger systems.

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/dhowells/linux-asm_system Pull "Disintegrate and delete asm/system.h" from David Howells: "Here are a bunch of patches to disintegrate asm/system.h into a set of separate bits to relieve the problem of circular inclusion dependencies. I've built all the working defconfigs from all the arches that I can and made sure that they don't break. The reason for these patches is that I recently encountered a circular dependency problem that came about when I produced some patches to optimise get_order() by rewriting it to use ilog2(). This uses bitops - and on the SH arch asm/bitops.h drags in asm-generic/get_order.h by a circuituous route involving asm/system.h. The main difficulty seems to be asm/system.h. It holds a number of low level bits with no/few dependencies that are commonly used (eg. memory barriers) and a number of bits with more dependencies that aren't used in many places (eg. switch_to()). These patches break asm/system.h up into the following core pieces: (1) asm/barrier.h Move memory barriers here. This already done for MIPS and Alpha. (2) asm/switch_to.h Move switch_to() and related stuff here. (3) asm/exec.h Move arch_align_stack() here. Other process execution related bits could perhaps go here from asm/processor.h. (4) asm/cmpxchg.h Move xchg() and cmpxchg() here as they're full word atomic ops and frequently used by atomic_xchg() and atomic_cmpxchg(). (5) asm/bug.h Move die() and related bits. (6) asm/auxvec.h Move AT_VECTOR_SIZE_ARCH here. Other arch headers are created as needed on a per-arch basis." Fixed up some conflicts from other header file cleanups and moving code around that has happened in the meantime, so David's testing is somewhat weakened by that.
