      powerpc/tm: Fix illegal TM state in signal handler · 044215d1
      Gustavo Romero authored
      Currently it's possible that on returning from the signal handler
      through the restore_tm_sigcontexts() code path (e.g. from a signal
      caught due to a `trap` instruction executed in the middle of an HTM
      block, or a deliberately constructed sigframe) an illegal TM state
      (like TS=10 TM=0, i.e. "T0") is set in SRR1 and when `rfid` sets
      implicitly the MSR register from SRR1 register on return to userspace
      it causes a TM Bad Thing exception.
      That illegal state can be set (a) by a malicious user that disables
      the TM bit by tweaking the bits in uc_mcontext before returning from
      the signal handler or (b) by a sufficient number of context switches
      occurring such that the load_tm counter overflows and TM is disabled
      whilst in the signal handler.
      This commit fixes the illegal TM state by ensuring that TM bit is
      always enabled before we return from restore_tm_sigcontexts(). A small
      comment correction is made as well.

      powerpc: tm: Always use fp_state and vr_state to store live registers · dc310669
      Cyril Bur authored
      There is currently an inconsistency as to how the entire CPU register
      state is saved and restored when a thread uses transactional memory
      Using transactional memory results in the CPU having duplicated
      (almost) all of its register state. This duplication results in a set
      of registers which can be considered 'live', those being currently
      modified by the instructions being executed and another set that is
      frozen at a point in time.
      On context switch, both sets of state have to be saved and (later)
      restored. These two states are often called a variety of different
      things. Common terms for the state which only exists after the CPU has
      entered a transaction (performed a TBEGIN instruction) in hardware are
      'transactional' or 'speculative'.
      Between a TBEGIN and a TEND or TABORT (or an event that causes the
      hardware to abort), regardless of the use of TSUSPEND the
      transactional state can be referred to as the live state.
      The second state is often to referred to as the 'checkpointed' state
      and is a duplication of the live state when the TBEGIN instruction is
      executed. This state is kept in the hardware and will be rolled back
      to on transaction failure.
      Currently all the registers stored in pt_regs are ALWAYS the live
      registers, that is, when a thread has transactional registers their
      values are stored in pt_regs and the checkpointed state is in
      ckpt_regs. A strange opposite is true for fp_state/vr_state. When a
      thread is non transactional fp_state/vr_state holds the live
      registers. When a thread has initiated a transaction fp_state/vr_state
      holds the checkpointed state and transact_fp/transact_vr become the
      structure which holds the live state (at this point it is a
      transactional state).
      This method creates confusion as to where the live state is, in some
      circumstances it requires extra work to determine where to put the
      live state and prevents the use of common functions designed (probably
      before TM) to save the live state.
      With this patch pt_regs, fp_state and vr_state all represent the
      same thing and the other structures [pending rename] are for
      checkpointed state.

      powerpc: signals: Stop using current in signal code · d1199431
      Cyril Bur authored
      Much of the signal code takes a pt_regs on which it operates. Over
      time the signal code has needed to know more about the thread than
      what pt_regs can supply, this information is obtained as needed by
      using 'current'.
      This approach is not strictly incorrect however it does mean that
      there is now a hard requirement that the pt_regs being passed around
      does belong to current, this is never checked. A safer approach is for
      the majority of the signal functions to take a task_struct from which
      they can obtain pt_regs and any other information they need. The
      caveat that the task_struct they are passed must be current doesn't go
      away but can more easily be checked for.
      Functions called from outside powerpc signal code are passed a pt_regs
      and they can confirm that the pt_regs is that of current and pass
      current to other functions, furthurmore, powerpc signal functions can
      check that the task_struct they are passed is the same as current
      avoiding possible corruption of current (or the task they are passed)
      if this assertion ever fails.

      powerpc: signals: Discard transaction state from signal frames · 78a3e888
      Cyril Bur authored
      Userspace can begin and suspend a transaction within the signal
      handler which means they might enter sys_rt_sigreturn() with the
      processor in suspended state.
      sys_rt_sigreturn() wants to restore process context (which may have
      been in a transaction before signal delivery). To do this it must
      restore TM SPRS. To achieve this, any transaction initiated within the
      signal frame must be discarded in order to be able to restore TM SPRs
      as TM SPRs can only be manipulated non-transactionally..

      all arches, signal: move restart_block to struct task_struct · f56141e3
      Andy Lutomirski authored
      If an attacker can cause a controlled kernel stack overflow, overwriting
      the restart block is a very juicy exploit target.  This is because the
      restart_block is held in the same memory allocation as the kernel stack.
      Moving the restart block to struct task_struct prevents this exploit by
      making the restart_block harder to locate.
      Note that there are other fields in thread_info that are also easy
      targets, at least on some architectures.
      It's also a decent simplification, since the restart code is more or less
      identical on all architectures.

      This moves tm_recheckpoint to a C function and moves the tm_restore_sprs into
      that function.  It then adds IRQ disabling over the trechkpt critical section.
      It also sets the TEXASR FS in the signals code to ensure this is never set now
      that we explictly write the TM sprs in tm_recheckpoint.

      powerpc: Increase stack redzone for 64-bit userspace to 512 bytes · 573ebfa6
      Paul Mackerras authored
      The new ELFv2 little-endian ABI increases the stack redzone -- the
      area below the stack pointer that can be used for storing data --
      from 288 bytes to 512 bytes.  This means that we need to allow more
      space on the user stack when delivering a signal to a 64-bit process.
      To make the code a bit clearer, we define new USER_REDZONE_SIZE and
      KERNEL_REDZONE_SIZE symbols in ptrace.h.  For now, we leave the
      kernel redzone size at 288 bytes, since increasing it to 512 bytes
      would increase the size of interrupt stack frames correspondingly.
      Gcc currently only makes use of 288 bytes of redzone even when
      compiling for the new little-endian ABI, and the kernel cannot
      currently be compiled with the new ABI anyway.
      In the future, hopefully gcc will provide an option to control the
      amount of redzone used, and then we could reduce it even more.
      This also changes the code in arch_compat_alloc_user_space() to
      preserve the expanded redzone.  It is not clear why this function would
      ever be used on a 64-bit process, though.

      powerpc: Don't corrupt transactional state when using FP/VMX in kernel · d31626f7
      Paul Mackerras authored
      Currently, when we have a process using the transactional memory
      facilities on POWER8 (that is, the processor is in transactional
      or suspended state), and the process enters the kernel and the
      kernel then uses the floating-point or vector (VMX/Altivec) facility,
      we end up corrupting the user-visible FP/VMX/VSX state.  This
      happens, for example, if a page fault causes a copy-on-write
      operation, because the copy_page function will use VMX to do the
      copy on POWER8.  The test program below demonstrates the bug.
      The bug happens because when FP/VMX state for a transactional process
      is stored in the thread_struct, we store the checkpointed state in
      .fp_state/.vr_state and the transactional (current) state in
      .transact_fp/.transact_vr.  However, when the kernel wants to use
      FP/VMX, it calls enable_kernel_fp() or enable_kernel_altivec(),
      which saves the current state in .fp_state/.vr_state.  Furthermore,
      when we return to the user process we return with FP/VMX/VSX
      disabled.  The next time the process uses FP/VMX/VSX, we don't know
      which set of state (the current register values, .fp_state/.vr_state,
      or .transact_fp/.transact_vr) we should be using, since we have no
      way to tell if we are still in the same transaction, and if not,
      whether the previous transaction succeeded or failed.
      Thus it is necessary to strictly adhere to the rule that if FP has
      been enabled at any point in a transaction, we must keep FP enabled
      for the user process with the current transactional state in the
      FP registers, until we detect that it is no longer in a transaction.
      Similarly for VMX; once enabled it must stay enabled until the
      process is no longer transactional.
      In order to keep this rule, we add a new thread_info flag which we
      test when returning from the kernel to userspace, called TIF_RESTORE_TM.
      This flag indicates that there is FP/VMX/VSX state to be restored
      before entering userspace, and when it is set the .tm_orig_msr field
      in the thread_struct indicates what state needs to be restored.
      The restoration is done by restore_tm_state().  The TIF_RESTORE_TM
      bit is set by new giveup_fpu/altivec_maybe_transactional helpers,
      which are called from enable_kernel_fp/altivec, giveup_vsx, and
      flush_fp/altivec_to_thread instead of giveup_fpu/altivec.
      The other thing to be done is to get the transactional FP/VMX/VSX
      state from .fp_state/.vr_state when doing reclaim, if that state
      has been saved there by giveup_fpu/altivec_maybe_transactional.
      Having done this, we set the FP/VMX bit in the thread's MSR after
      reclaim to indicate that that part of the state is now valid
      (having been reclaimed from the processor's checkpointed state).
      Finally, in the signal handling code, we move the clearing of the
      transactional state bits in the thread's MSR a bit earlier, before
      calling flush_fp_to_thread(), so that we don't unnecessarily set
      the TIF_RESTORE_TM bit.
      This is the test program:
      /* Michael Neuling 4/12/2013
       * See if the altivec state is leaked out of an aborted transaction due to
       * kernel vmx copy loops.

      powerpc/signals: Improved mark VSX not saved with small contexts fix · ec67ad82
      Michael Neuling authored
      In a recent patch:
        commit c13f20ac
        Author: Michael Neuling <mikey@neuling.org>
        powerpc/signals: Mark VSX not saved with small contexts
      We fixed an issue but an improved solution was later discussed after the patch
      was merged.
      Firstly, this patch doesn't handle the 64bit signals case, which could also hit
      this issue (but has never been reported).
      Secondly, the original patch isn't clear what MSR VSX should be set to.  The
      new approach below always clears the MSR VSX bit (to indicate no VSX is in the
      context) and sets it only in the specific case where VSX is available (ie. when
      VSX has been used and the signal context passed has space to provide the
      This reverts the original patch and replaces it with the improved solution.  It
      also adds a 64 bit version.

      powerpc: Put FP/VSX and VR state into structures · de79f7b9
      Paul Mackerras authored
      This creates new 'thread_fp_state' and 'thread_vr_state' structures
      to store FP/VSX state (including FPSCR) and Altivec/VSX state
      (including VSCR), and uses them in the thread_struct.  In the
      thread_fp_state, the FPRs and VSRs are represented as u64 rather
      than double, since we rarely perform floating-point computations
      on the values, and this will enable the structures to be used
      in KVM code as well.  Similarly FPSCR is now a u64 rather than
      a structure of two 32-bit values.
      This takes the offsets out of the macros such as SAVE_32FPRS,
      REST_32FPRS, etc.  This enables the same macros to be used for normal
      and transactional state, enabling us to delete the transactional
      versions of the macros.   This also removes the unused do_load_up_fpu
      and do_load_up_altivec, which were in fact buggy since they didn't
      create large enough stack frames to account for the fact that
      load_up_fpu and load_up_altivec are not designed to be called from C
      and assume that their caller's stack frame is an interrupt frame.

      powerpc/tm: Fix return of active 64bit signals · 87b4e539
      Michael Neuling authored
      Currently we only restore signals which are transactionally suspended but it's
      possible that the transaction can be restored even when it's active.  Most
      likely this will result in a transactional rollback by the hardware as the
      transaction will have been doomed by an earlier treclaim.
      The current code is a legacy of earlier kernel implementations which did
      software rollback of active transactions in the kernel.  That code has now gone
      but we didn't correctly fix up this part of the signals code which still makes
      assumptions based on having software rollback.
      This changes the signal return code to always restore both contexts on 64 bit
      signal return.  It also ensures that the MSR TM bits are properly restored from
      the signal context which they are not currently.

      powerpc/tm: Fix userspace stack corruption on signal delivery for active transactions · 2b3f8e87
      Michael Neuling authored
      When in an active transaction that takes a signal, we need to be careful with
      the stack.  It's possible that the stack has moved back up after the tbegin.
      The obvious case here is when the tbegin is called inside a function that
      returns before a tend.  In this case, the stack is part of the checkpointed
      transactional memory state.  If we write over this non transactionally or in
      suspend, we are in trouble because if we get a tm abort, the program counter
      and stack pointer will be back at the tbegin but our in memory stack won't be
      valid anymore.
      To avoid this, when taking a signal in an active transaction, we need to use
      the stack pointer from the checkpointed state, rather than the speculated
      state.  This ensures that the signal context (written tm suspended) will be
      written below the stack required for the rollback.  The transaction is aborted
      becuase of the treclaim, so any memory written between the tbegin and the
      signal will be rolled back anyway.
      For signals taken in non-TM or suspended mode, we use the
      normal/non-checkpointed stack pointer.
      Tested with 64 and 32 bit signals

      powerpc: Sanitize stack pointer in signal handling code · efbda860
      Josh Boyer authored
      On powerpc64 machines running 32-bit userspace, we can get garbage bits in the
      stack pointer passed into the kernel.  Most places handle this correctly, but
      the signal handling code uses the passed value directly for allocating signal
      stack frames.
      This fixes the issue by introducing a get_clean_sp function that returns a
      sanitized stack pointer.  For 32-bit tasks on a 64-bit kernel, the stack
      pointer is masked correctly.  In all other cases, the stack pointer is simply
      Additionally, we pass an 'is_32' parameter to get_sigframe now in order to
      get the properly sanitized stack.  The callers are know to be 32 or 64-bit
