      Revert "xen: properly account for _PAGE_NUMA during xen pte translations" · 5926f87f

      This reverts commit a9c8e4be
      PTEs in Xen PV guests must contain machine addresses if _PAGE_PRESENT
      is set and pseudo-physical addresses is _PAGE_PRESENT is clear.
      This is because during a domain save/restore (migration) the page
      table entries are "canonicalised" and uncanonicalised". i.e., MFNs are
      converted to PFNs during domain save so that on a restore the page
      table entries may be rewritten with the new MFNs on the destination.
      This canonicalisation is only done for PTEs that are present.
      This change resulted in writing PTEs with MFNs if _PAGE_PROTNONE (or
      _PAGE_NUMA) was set but _PAGE_PRESENT was clear.  These PTEs would be
      migrated as-is which would result in unexpected behaviour in the
      destination domain.  Either a) the MFN would be translated to the
      wrong PFN/page; b) setting the _PAGE_PRESENT bit would clear the PTE
      because the MFN is no longer owned by the domain; or c) the present
      bit would not get set.
      Symptoms include "Bad page" reports when munmapping after migrating a

      xen: properly account for _PAGE_NUMA during xen pte translations · a9c8e4be
      Mel Gorman authored
      Steven Noonan forwarded a users report where they had a problem starting
      vsftpd on a Xen paravirtualized guest, with this in dmesg:
        BUG: Bad page map in process vsftpd  pte:8000000493b88165 pmd:e9cc01067

        BUG: Bad rss-counter state mm:ffff880e9ca60580 idx:1 val:1
      The issue could not be reproduced under an HVM instance with the same
      kernel, so it appears to be exclusive to paravirtual Xen guests.  He
      bisected the problem to commit 1667918b
       ("mm: numa: clear numa
      hinting information on mprotect") that was also included in 3.12-stable.
      The problem was related to how xen translates ptes because it was not
      accounting for the _PAGE_NUMA bit.  This patch splits pte_present to add
      a pteval_present helper for use by xen so both bare metal and xen use
      the same code when checking if a PTE is present.

      swiotlb-xen: use xen_alloc/free_coherent_pages · 1b65c4e5
      Stefano Stabellini authored
      Use xen_alloc_coherent_pages and xen_free_coherent_pages to allocate or
      free coherent pages.
      We need to be careful handling the pointer returned by
      xen_alloc_coherent_pages, because on ARM the pointer is not equal to
      phys_to_virt(*dma_handle). In fact virt_to_phys only works for kernel
      direct mapped RAM memory.
      In ARM case the pointer could be an ioremap address, therefore passing
      it to virt_to_phys would give you another physical address that doesn't
      correspond to it.
      Make xen_create_contiguous_region take a phys_addr_t as start parameter to
      avoid the virt_to_phys calls which would be incorrect.
      Changes in v6:
      - remove extra spaces.

      x86: Use a read-only IDT alias on all CPUs · 4eefbe79
      Kees Cook authored
      Make a copy of the IDT (as seen via the "sidt" instruction) read-only.
      This primarily removes the IDT from being a target for arbitrary memory
      write attacks, and has the added benefit of also not leaking the kernel
      base offset, if it has been relocated.
      We already did this on vendor == Intel and family == 5 because of the
      F0 0F bug -- regardless of if a particular CPU had the F0 0F bug or
      not.  Since the workaround was so cheap, there simply was no reason to
      be very specific.  This patch extends the readonly alias to all CPUs,
      but does not activate the #PF to #UD conversion code needed to deliver
      the proper exception in the F0 0F case except on Intel family 5

      xen/mmu: On early bootup, flush the TLB when changing RO->RW bits Xen provided pagetables. · b2222794
      Konrad Rzeszutek Wilk authored

      The offending code shows it to be a loop writting the value zero
      (%rax) in the %rdi (the L4 provided by Xen) register:
         0: 44 00 00             add    %r8b,(%rax)
         3: 31 c0                 xor    %eax,%eax

        1c: 48 89 47 10           mov    %rax,0x10(%rdi)
      which fails. xen_setup_kernel_pagetable recycles some of the Xen's
      page-table entries when it has switched over to its Linux page-tables.
      Right before try to clear the page, we  make a hypercall to change
      it from _RO to  _RW and that works (otherwise we would hit an BUG()).
      And the _RW flag is set for that page:
      (XEN)  L1[0x1c7] = 001000004885f067 0000000000004dc7
      The error code is 3, so PFEC_page_present and PFEC_write_access, so page is
      present (correct), and we tried to write to the page, but a violation
      occurred. The one theory is that the the page entries in hardware
      (which are cached) are not up to date with what we just set. Especially
      as we have just done an CR3 write and flushed the multicalls.
      This patch does solve the problem by flusing out the TLB page
      entry after changing it from _RO to _RW and we don't hit this
      issue anymore.

      x86-64, xen, mmu: Provide an early version of write_cr3. · 0cc9129d
      Konrad Rzeszutek Wilk authored
      With commit 8170e6be
       ("x86, 64bit: Use a #PF handler to materialize
      early mappings on demand") we started hitting an early bootup crash
      where the Xen hypervisor would inform us that:
          (XEN) d7:v0: unhandled page fault (ec=0000)
          (XEN) Pagetable walk from ffffea000005b2d0:
          (XEN)  L4[0x1d4] = 0000000000000000 ffffffffffffffff

          (XEN) ----[ Xen-4.2.0  x86_64  debug=n  Not tainted ]----
      .. that Xen was unable to context switch back to dom0.
      Looking at the calling stack we find:
          [<ffffffff8103feba>] xen_get_user_pgd+0x5a  <--
          [<ffffffff8103feba>] xen_get_user_pgd+0x5a

          [<ffffffff81ac293f>] setup_arch+0x742
          [<ffffffff81666d71>] printk+0x48
      We are trying to figure out whether we need to up-date the user PGD as
      well.  Please keep in mind that under 64-bit PV guests we have a limited
      amount of rings: 0 for the Hypervisor, and 1 for both the Linux kernel
      and user-space.  As such the Linux pvops'fied version of write_cr3
      checks if it has to update the user-space cr3 as well.
      That clearly is not needed during early bootup.  The recent changes (see
      above git commit) streamline the x86 page table allocation to be much
      simpler (And also incidentally the #PF handler ends up in spirit being
      similar to how the Xen toolstack sets up the initial page-tables).
      The fix is to have an early-bootup version of cr3 that just loads the
      kernel %cr3.  The later version - which also handles user-page
      modifications will be used after the initial page tables have been
      [ hpa: removed a redundant #ifdef and made the new function __init.
        Also note that x86-32 already has such an early xen_write_cr3. ]

      mm: kill vma flag VM_RESERVED and mm->reserved_vm counter · 314e51b9
      Konstantin Khlebnikov authored
      A long time ago, in v2.4, VM_RESERVED kept swapout process off VMA,
      currently it lost original meaning but still has some effects:
       | effect                 | alternative flags
      1| account as reserved_vm | VM_IO
      2| skip in core dump      | VM_IO, VM_DONTDUMP
      3| do not merge or expand | VM_IO, VM_DONTEXPAND, VM_HUGETLB, VM_PFNMAP
      4| do not mlock           | VM_IO, VM_DONTEXPAND, VM_HUGETLB, VM_PFNMAP
      This patch removes reserved_vm counter from mm_struct.  Seems like nobody
      cares about it, it does not exported into userspace directly, it only
      reduces total_vm showed in proc.
      Thus VM_RESERVED can be replaced with VM_IO or pair VM_DONTEXPAND | VM_DONTDUMP.
      remap_pfn_range() and io_remap_pfn_range() set VM_IO|VM_DONTEXPAND|VM_DONTDUMP.
      remap_vmalloc_range() set VM_DONTEXPAND | VM_DONTDUMP.

      xen pv-on-hvm: add pfn_is_ram helper for kdump · 34b6f01a
      Olaf Hering authored
      Register pfn_is_ram helper speed up reading /proc/vmcore in the kdump
      kernel. See commit message of 997c136f
       ("fs/proc/vmcore.c: add hook
      to read_from_oldmem() to check for non-ram pages") for details.
      It makes use of a new hvmop HVMOP_get_mem_type which was introduced in
      xen 4.2 (23298:26413986e6e0) and backported to 4.1.1.
      The new function is currently only enabled for reading /proc/vmcore.
      Later it will be used also for the kexec kernel. Since that requires
      more changes in the generic kernel make it static for the time being.
