      mm: add SLUB free list pointer obfuscation · 2482ddec
      Kees Cook authored
      This SLUB free list pointer obfuscation code is modified from Brad
      Spengler/PaX Team's code in the last public patch of grsecurity/PaX
      based on my understanding of the code.  Changes or omissions from the
      original code are mine and don't reflect the original grsecurity/PaX
      This adds a per-cache random value to SLUB caches that is XORed with
      their freelist pointer address and value.  This adds nearly zero
      overhead and frustrates the very common heap overflow exploitation
      method of overwriting freelist pointers.
      A recent example of the attack is written up here:
      and there is a section dedicated to the technique the book "A Guide to
      Kernel Exploitation: Attacking the Core".
      This is based on patches by Daniel Micay, and refactored to minimize the
      use of #ifdef.
      With 200-count cycles of "hackbench -g 20 -l 1000" I saw the following
      run times:
       	mean 10.11882499999999999995
      	variance .03320378329145728642
      	stdev .18221905304181911048
      	mean 10.12654000000000000014
      	variance .04700556623115577889
      	stdev .21680767106160192064
      The difference gets lost in the noise, but if the above is to be taken
      literally, using CONFIG_FREELIST_HARDENED is 0.07% slower.

      mm: allow slab_nomerge to be set at build time · 7660a6fd
      Kees Cook authored
      Some hardened environments want to build kernels with slab_nomerge
      already set (so that they do not depend on remembering to set the kernel
      command line option).  This is desired to reduce the risk of kernel heap
      overflows being able to overwrite objects from merged caches and changes
      the requirements for cache layout control, increasing the difficulty of
      these attacks.  By keeping caches unmerged, these kinds of exploits can
      usually only damage objects in the same cache (though the risk to
      metadata exploitation is unchanged).

      srcu: Fix Kconfig botch when SRCU not selected · 677df9d4
      Paul E. McKenney authored
      If the CONFIG_SRCU option is not selected, for example, when building
      arch/tile allnoconfig, the following build errors appear:
      	kernel/rcu/tree.o: In function `srcu_online_cpu':
      	tree.c:(.text+0x4248): multiple definition of `srcu_online_cpu'
      	kernel/rcu/srcutree.o:srcutree.c:(.text+0x2120): first defined here
      	kernel/rcu/tree.o: In function `srcu_offline_cpu':
      	tree.c:(.text+0x4250): multiple definition of `srcu_offline_cpu'
      	kernel/rcu/srcutree.o:srcutree.c:(.text+0x2160): first defined here
      The corresponding .config file shows CONFIG_TREE_SRCU=y, but no sign
      of CONFIG_SRCU, which fatally confuses SRCU's #ifdefs, resulting in
      the above errors.  The reason this occurs is the folowing line in
      init/Kconfig's definition for TREE_SRCU:
      	default y if !TINY_RCU && !CLASSIC_SRCU
      If CONFIG_CLASSIC_SRCU=n, as it will be in for allnoconfig, and if
      CONFIG_SMP=y, then we will get CONFIG_TREE_SRCU=y but no CONFIG_SRCU,
      as seen in the .config file, and which will result in the above errors.
      This error did not show up during rcutorture testing because rcutorture
      forces CONFIG_SRCU=y, as it must to prevent build errors in rcutorture.c.
      This commit therefore conditions TREE_SRCU (and TINY_SRCU, while it is
      at it) with SRCU, like this:
      	default y if SRCU && !TINY_RCU && !CLASSIC_SRCU

      srcu: Introduce CLASSIC_SRCU Kconfig option · dad81a20
      Paul E. McKenney authored
      The TREE_SRCU rewrite is large and a bit on the non-simple side, so
      this commit helps reduce risk by allowing the old v4.11 SRCU algorithm
      to be selected using a new CLASSIC_SRCU Kconfig option that depends
      on RCU_EXPERT.  The default is to use the new TREE_SRCU and TINY_SRCU
      algorithms, in order to help get these the testing that they need.
      However, if your users do not require the update-side scalability that
      is to be provided by TREE_SRCU, select RCU_EXPERT and then CLASSIC_SRCU
      to revert back to the old classic SRCU algorithm.

      slub: make sysfs directories for memcg sub-caches optional · 1663f26d
      Tejun Heo authored
      SLUB creates a per-cache directory under /sys/kernel/slab which hosts a
      bunch of debug files.  Usually, there aren't that many caches on a
      system and this doesn't really matter; however, if memcg is in use, each
      cache can have per-cgroup sub-caches.  SLUB creates the same directories
      for these sub-caches under /sys/kernel/slab/$CACHE/cgroup.
      Unfortunately, because there can be a lot of cgroups, active or
      draining, the product of the numbers of caches, cgroups and files in
      each directory can reach a very high number - hundreds of thousands is
      commonplace.  Millions and beyond aren't difficult to reach either.
      What's under /sys/kernel/slab is primarily for debugging and the
      information and control on the a root cache already cover its
      sub-caches.  While having a separate directory for each sub-cache can be
      helpful for development, it doesn't make much sense to pay this amount
      of overhead by default.
      This patch introduces a boot parameter slub_memcg_sysfs which determines
      whether to create sysfs directories for per-memcg sub-caches.  It also
      adds CONFIG_SLUB_MEMCG_SYSFS_ON which determines the boot parameter's
      default value and defaults to 0.

      kbuild: modversions: add infrastructure for emitting relative CRCs · 56067812
      Ard Biesheuvel authored
      This add the kbuild infrastructure that will allow architectures to emit
      vmlinux symbol CRCs as 32-bit offsets to another location in the kernel
      where the actual value is stored. This works around problems with CRCs
      being mistaken for relocatable symbols on kernels that self relocate at
      runtime (i.e., powerpc with CONFIG_RELOCATABLE=y)
      For the kbuild side of things, this comes down to the following:
       - introducing a Kconfig symbol MODULE_REL_CRCS
       - adding a -R switch to genksyms to instruct it to emit the CRC symbols
         as references into the .rodata section
       - making modpost distinguish such references from absolute CRC symbols
         by the section index (SHN_ABS)
       - making kallsyms disregard non-absolute symbols with a __crc_ prefix

      rdmacg: Added rdma cgroup controller · 39d3e758
      Parav Pandit authored
      Added rdma cgroup controller that does accounting, limit enforcement
      on rdma/IB resources.
      Added rdma cgroup header file which defines its APIs to perform
      charging/uncharging functionality. It also defined APIs for RDMA/IB
      stack for device registration. Devices which are registered will
      participate in controller functions of accounting and limit
      enforcements. It define rdmacg_device structure to bind IB stack
      and RDMA cgroup controller.
      RDMA resources are tracked using resource pool. Resource pool is per
      device, per cgroup entity which allows setting up accounting limits
      on per device basis.
      Currently resources are defined by the RDMA cgroup.
      Resource pool is created/destroyed dynamically whenever
      charging/uncharging occurs respectively and whenever user
      configuration is done. Its a tradeoff of memory vs little more code
      space that creates resource pool object whenever necessary, instead of
      creating them during cgroup creation and device registration time.

      Re-enable CONFIG_MODVERSIONS in a slightly weaker form · faaae2a5
      Linus Torvalds authored
      This enables CONFIG_MODVERSIONS again, but allows for missing symbol CRC
      information in order to work around the issue that newer binutils
      versions seem to occasionally drop the CRC on the floor.  binutils 2.26
      seems to work fine, while binutils 2.27 seems to break MODVERSIONS of
      symbols that have been defined in assembler files.
      [ We've had random missing CRC's before - it may be an old problem that
        just is now reliably triggered with the weak asm symbols and a new
        version of binutils ]
      Some day I really do want to remove MODVERSIONS entirely.  Sadly, today
      does not appear to be that day: Debian people apparently do want the
      option to enable MODVERSIONS to make it easier to have external modules
      across kernel versions, and this seems to be a fairly minimal fix for
      the annoying problem.

      cgroup: add support for eBPF programs · 30070984
      Daniel Mack authored
      This patch adds two sets of eBPF program pointers to struct cgroup.
      One for such that are directly pinned to a cgroup, and one for such
      that are effective for it.
      To illustrate the logic behind that, assume the following example
      cgroup hierarchy.
        A - B - C
              \ D - E
      If only B has a program attached, it will be effective for B, C, D
      and E. If D then attaches a program itself, that will be effective for
      both D and E, and the program in B will only affect B and C. Only one
      program of a given type is effective for a cgroup.
      Attaching and detaching programs will be done through the bpf(2)
      syscall. For now, ingress and egress inet socket filtering are the
      only supported use-cases.

      relay: Use irq_work instead of plain timer for deferred wakeup · 26b5679e
      Peter Zijlstra authored
      Relay avoids calling wake_up_interruptible() for doing the wakeup of
      readers/consumers, waiting for the generation of new data, from the
      context of a process which produced the data.  This is apparently done to
      prevent the possibility of a deadlock in case Scheduler itself is is
      generating data for the relay, after acquiring rq->lock.
      The following patch used a timer (to be scheduled at next jiffy), for
      delegating the wakeup to another context.
      	commit 7c9cb383
      	Author: Tom Zanussi <zanussi@comcast.net>
      	Date:   Wed May 9 02:34:01 2007 -0700
      	relay: use plain timer instead of delayed work
      	relay doesn't need to use schedule_delayed_work() for waking readers
      	when a simple timer will do.
      Scheduling a plain timer, at next jiffies boundary, to do the wakeup
      causes a significant wakeup latency for the Userspace client, which makes
      relay less suitable for the high-frequency low-payload use cases where the
      data gets generated at a very high rate, like multiple sub buffers getting
      filled within a milli second.  Moreover the timer is re-scheduled on every
      newly produced sub buffer so the timer keeps getting pushed out if sub
      buffers are filled in a very quick succession (less than a jiffy gap
      between filling of 2 sub buffers).  As a result relay runs out of sub
      buffers to store the new data.
      By using irq_work it is ensured that wakeup of userspace client, blocked
      in the poll call, is done at earliest (through self IPI or next timer
      tick) enabling it to always consume the data in time.  Also this makes
      relay consistent with printk & ring buffers (trace), as they too use
      irq_work for deferred wake up of readers.
