2007-10-19Don't allow the stack to grow into hugetlb reserved regions (CVE-2007-3739)Adam Litke
When expanding the stack, we don't currently check if the VMA will cross into an area of the address space that is reserved for hugetlb pages. Subsequent faults on the expanded portion of such a VMA will confuse the low-level MMU code, resulting in an OOPS. Check for this.

2007-10-19hugetlb: fix prio_tree unit (CVE-2007-4133)Hugh Dickins
hugetlb_vmtruncate_list was misconverted to prio_tree: its prio_tree is in units of PAGE_SIZE (PAGE_CACHE_SIZE) like any other, not HPAGE_SIZE (whereas its radix_tree is kept in units of HPAGE_SIZE, otherwise slots would be absurdly sparse). At first I thought the error benign, just calling __unmap_hugepage_range on more vmas than necessary; but on 32-bit machines, when the prio_tree is searched correctly, it happens to ensure the v_offset calculation won't overflow. As it stood, when truncating at or beyond 4GB, it was liable to discard pages COWed from lower offsets; or even to clear pmd entries of preceding vmas, triggering exit_mmap's BUG_ON(nr_ptes).

2007-10-18[TCP]: Fix fastpath_cnt_hint when GSO skb is partially ACKedIlpo Järvinen
When only GSO skb was partially ACKed, no hints are reset, therefore fastpath_cnt_hint must be tweaked too or else it can corrupt fackets_out. The corruption to occur, one must have non-trivial ACK/SACK sequence, so this bug is not very often that harmful. There's a fackets_out state reset in TCP because fackets_out is known to be inaccurate and that fixes the issue eventually anyway. In case there was also at least one skb that got fully ACKed, the fastpath_skb_hint is set to NULL which causes a recount for fastpath_cnt_hint (the old value won't be accessed anymore), thus it can safely be decremented without additional checking.

Thanks to Tom Callaway for the excellent bug report and test case. sys_ipc() has several problems, most to due with semaphore call handling: 1) 'err' return should be a 'long' 2) "union semun" is passed in a register on 64-bit compared to 32-bit which provides it on the stack and therefore by reference 3) Second and third arguments to SEMCTL are swapped compared to 32-bit.

2007-10-18[NET]: Zero length write() on socket should not simply return 0.David S. Miller
This fixes kernel bugzilla #5731 It should generate an empty packet for datagram protocols when the socket is connected, for one. The check is doubly-wrong because all that a write() can be is a sendmsg() call with a NULL msg_control and a single entry iovec. No special semantics should be assigned to it, therefore the zero length check should be removed entirely. This matches the behavior of BSD and several other systems. Alan Cox notes that SuSv3 says the behavior of a zero length write on non-files is "unspecified", but that's kind of useless since BSD has defined this behavior for a quarter century and BSD is essentially what application folks code to.

2007-10-18[PKT_SCHED] RED: Fix overflow in calculation of queue averageIlpo Järvinen
Overflow can occur very easily with 32 bits, e.g., with 1 second us_idle is approx. 2^20, which leaves only 11-Wlog bits for queue length. Since the EWMA exponent is typically around 9, queue lengths larger than 2^2 cause overflow. Whether the affected branch is taken when us_idle is as high as 1 second, depends on Scell_log, but with rather reasonable configuration Scell_log is large enough to cause p->Stab to have zero index, which always results zero shift (typically also few other small indices result in zero shift).

Backport of ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/akpm/patches/2.6/2.6.22-rc1/2.6.22-rc1-mm1/broken-out/gregkh-driver-sysfs-allocate-inode-number-using-ida.patch For regular files in sysfs, sysfs_readdir wants to traverse sysfs_dirent->s_dentry->d_inode->i_ino to get to the inode number. But, the dentry can be reclaimed under memory pressure, and there is no synchronization with readdir. This patch follows Tejun's scheme of allocating and storing an inode number in the new s_ino member of a sysfs_dirent, when dirents are created, and retrieving it from there for readdir, so that the pointer chain doesn't have to be traversed. Tejun's upstream patch uses a new-ish "ida" allocator which brings along some extra complexity; this -stable patch has a brain-dead incrementing counter which does not guarantee uniqueness, but because sysfs doesn't hash inodes as iunique expects, uniqueness wasn't guaranteed today anyway.

2007-10-06[IPSEC] AH4: Update IPv4 options handling to conform to RFC 4302.Nick Bowler
In testing our ESP/AH offload hardware, I discovered an issue with how AH handles mutable fields in IPv4. RFC 4302 (AH) states the following on the subject: For IPv4, the entire option is viewed as a unit; so even though the type and length fields within most options are immutable in transit, if an option is classified as mutable, the entire option is zeroed for ICV computation purposes. The current implementation does not zero the type and length fields, resulting in authentication failures when communicating with hosts that do (i.e. FreeBSD). I have tested record route and timestamp options (ping -R and ping -T) on a small network involving Windows XP, FreeBSD 6.2, and Linux hosts, with one router. In the presence of these options, the FreeBSD and Linux hosts (with the patch or with the hardware) can communicate. The Windows XP host simply fails to accept these packets with or without the patch. I have also been trying to test source routing options (using traceroute -g), but haven't had much luck getting this option to work *without* AH, let alone with.

2007-09-24TCP: Fix TCP handling of SACK in bidirectional flowsIlpo Järvinen
It's possible that new SACK blocks that should trigger new LOST markings arrive with new data (which previously made is_dupack false). In addition, I think this fixes a case where we get a cumulative ACK with enough SACK blocks to trigger the fast recovery (is_dupack would be false there too). I'm not completely pleased with this solution because readability of the code is somewhat questionable as 'is_dupack' in SACK case is no longer about dupacks only but would mean something like 'lost_marker_work_todo' too... But because of Eifel stuff done in CA_Recovery, the FLAG_DATA_SACKED check cannot be placed to the if statement which seems attractive solution.

2007-08-30[MATH-EMU]: Fix underflow exception reporting.David S. Miller
The underflow exception cases were wrong. This is one weird area of ieee1754 handling in that the underflow behavior changes based upon whether underflow is enabled in the trap enable mask of the FPU control register. As a specific case the Sparc V9 manual gives us the following description: -------------------- If UFM = 0: Underflow occurs if a nonzero result is tiny and a loss of accuracy occurs. Tininess may be detected before or after rounding. Loss of accuracy may be either a denormalization loss or an inexact result. If UFM = 1: Underflow occurs if a nonzero result is tiny. Tininess may be detected before or after rounding. -------------------- What this amounts to in the packing case is if we go subnormal, we set underflow if any of the following are true: 1) rounding sets inexact 2) we ended up rounding back up to normal (this is the case where we set the exponent to 1 and set the fraction to zero), this should set inexact too 3) underflow is set in FPU control register trap-enable mask The initially discovered example was "DBL_MIN / 16.0" which incorrectly generated an underflow. It should not, unless underflow is set in the trap-enable mask of the FPU csr. Another example, "0x0.0000000000001p-1022 / 16.0", should signal both inexact and underflow. The cpu implementations and ieee1754 literature is very clear about this. This is case #2 above. However, if underflow is set in the trap enable mask, only underflow should be set and reported as a trap. That is handled properly by the prioritization logic in arch/sparc{,64}/math-emu/math.c:record_exception(). Based upon a report and test case from Jakub Jelinek. Signed-off-by: David S.

2007-08-30[SPARC32]: Fix rounding errors in ndelay/udelay implementation.Mark Fortescue
__ndelay and __udelay have not been delayung >= specified time. The problem with __ndelay has been tacked down to the rounding of the multiplier constant. By changing this, delays > app 18us are correctly calculated. The problem with __udelay has also been tracked down to rounding issues. Changing the multiplier constant (to match that used in sparc64) corrects for large delays and adding in a rounding constant corrects for trunctaion errors in the claculations. Many short delays will return without looping. This is not an error as there is the fixed delay of doing all the maths to calculate the loop count.

2007-08-23md: avoid possible BUG_ON in md bitmap handlingNeil Brown
md/bitmap tracks how many active write requests are pending on blocks associated with each bit in the bitmap, so that it knows when it can clear the bit (when count hits zero). The counter has 14 bits of space, so if there are ever more than 16383, we cannot cope. Currently the code just calles BUG_ON as "all" drivers have request queue limits much smaller than this. However is seems that some don't. Apparently some multipath configurations can allow more than 16383 concurrent write requests. So, in this unlikely situation, instead of calling BUG_ON we now wait for the count to drop down a bit. This requires a new wait_queue_head, some waiting code, and a wakeup call. Tested by limiting the counter to 20 instead of 16383 (writes go a lot slower in that case...). Signed-off-by: Neil Brown <neilb@suse.de> Signed-off-by: Adrian Bunk <bunk@kernel.org>
