      x86/mm/kaslr: Use the _ASM_MUL macro for multiplication to work around Clang incompatibility · 121843eb
      Matthias Kaehlcke authored
      The constraint "rm" allows the compiler to put mix_const into memory.
      When the input operand is a memory location then MUL needs an operand
      size suffix, since Clang can't infer the multiplication width from the
      Add and use the _ASM_MUL macro which determines the operand size and
      resolves to the NUL instruction with the corresponding suffix.
      This fixes the following error when building with clang:
        CC      arch/x86/lib/kaslr.o
        /tmp/kaslr-dfe1ad.s: Assembler messages:
        /tmp/kaslr-dfe1ad.s:182: Error: no instruction mnemonic suffix given and no register operands; can't size instruction

      kprobes: Introduce NOKPROBE_SYMBOL() macro to maintain kprobes blacklist · 376e2424
      Masami Hiramatsu authored
      Introduce NOKPROBE_SYMBOL() macro which builds a kprobes
      blacklist at kernel build time.
      The usage of this macro is similar to EXPORT_SYMBOL(),
      placed after the function definition:
      Since this macro will inhibit inlining of static/inline
      functions, this patch also introduces a nokprobe_inline macro
      for static/inline functions. In this case, we must use
      NOKPROBE_SYMBOL() for the inline function caller.
      When CONFIG_KPROBES=y, the macro stores the given function
      address in the "_kprobe_blacklist" section.
      Since the data structures are not fully initialized by the
      macro (because there is no "size" information),  those
      are re-initialized at boot time by using kallsyms.

      x86, extable: Switch to relative exception table entries · 70627654
      H. Peter Anvin authored
      Switch to using relative exception table entries on x86.  On i386,
      this has the advantage that the exception table entries don't need to
      be relocated; on x86-64 this means the exception table entries take up
      only half the space.
      In either case, a 32-bit delta is sufficient, as the range of kernel
      code addresses is limited.
      Since part of the goal is to avoid needing to adjust the entries when
      the kernel is relocated, the old trick of using addresses in the NULL
      pointer range to indicate uaccess_err no longer works (and unlike RISC
      architectures we can't use a flag bit); instead use an delta just
      below +2G to indicate these special entries.  The reach is still
      limited to a single instruction.

      x86: Fix write lock scalability 64-bit issue · a750036f
      Jan Beulich authored
      With the write lock path simply subtracting RW_LOCK_BIAS there
      is, on large systems, the theoretical possibility of overflowing
      the 32-bit value that was used so far (namely if 128 or more
      CPUs manage to do the subtraction, but don't get to do the
      inverse addition in the failure path quickly enough).
      A first measure is to modify RW_LOCK_BIAS itself - with the new
      value chosen, it is good for up to 2048 CPUs each allowed to
      nest over 2048 times on the read path without causing an issue.
      Quite possibly it would even be sufficient to adjust the bias a
      little further, assuming that allowing for significantly less
      nesting would suffice.
      However, as the original value chosen allowed for even more
      nesting levels, to support more than 2048 CPUs (possible
      currently only for 64-bit kernels) the lock itself gets widened
      to 64 bits.

      x86: Unify rwlock assembly implementation · 4625cd63
      Jan Beulich authored
      Rather than having two functionally identical implementations
      for 32- and 64-bit configurations, extend the existing assembly
      abstractions enough to fold the two rwlock implementations into
      a shared one.

      x86: consolidate header guards · 77ef50a5
      Vegard Nossum authored
      This patch is the result of an automatic script that consolidates the
      format of all the headers in include/asm-x86/.
      The format:
      1. No leading underscore. Names with leading underscores are reserved.
      2. Pathname components are separated by two underscores. So we can
         distinguish between mm_types.h and mm/types.h.
      3. Everything except letters and numbers are turned into single
