9 years agouprobes: Use percpu_rw_semaphore to fix register/unregister vs dup_mmap() race
Oleg Nesterov [Wed, 14 Nov 2012 18:03:42 +0000 (19:03 +0100)]
uprobes: Use percpu_rw_semaphore to fix register/unregister vs dup_mmap() race

This was always racy, but 268720903f87e0b84b161626c4447b81671b5d18
"uprobes: Rework register_for_each_vma() to make it O(n)" should be
blamed anyway, it made everything worse and I didn't notice.

register/unregister call build_map_info() and then do install/remove
breakpoint for every mm which mmaps inode/offset. This can obviously
race with fork()->dup_mmap() in between and we can miss the child.

uprobe_register() could be easily fixed but unregister is much worse,
the new mm inherits "int3" from parent and there is no way to detect
this if uprobe goes away.

So this patch simply adds percpu_down_read/up_read around dup_mmap(),
and percpu_down_write/up_write into register_for_each_vma().

This adds 2 new hooks into dup_mmap() but we can kill uprobe_dup_mmap()
and fold it into uprobe_end_dup_mmap().

9 years agox86/perf: Fix virtualization sanity check
Andre Przywara [Tue, 9 Oct 2012 15:38:35 +0000 (17:38 +0200)]
x86/perf: Fix virtualization sanity check

In check_hw_exists() we try to detect non-emulated MSR accesses
by writing an arbitrary value into one of the PMU registers
and check if it's value after a readout is still the same.
This algorithm silently assumes that the register does not contain
the magic value already, which is wrong in at least one situation.

Fix the algorithm to really do a read-modify-write cycle. This fixes
a warning under Xen under some circumstances on AMD family 10h CPUs.

The reasons in more details actually sound like a story from
Believe It or Not!:

First you need an AMD family 10h/12h CPU. These do not reset the
PERF_CTR registers on a reboot.
Now you boot bare metal Linux, which goes successfully through this
check, but leaves the magic value of 0xabcd in the register. You
don't use the performance counters, but do a reboot (warm reset).
Then you choose to boot Xen. The check will be triggered with a
recent Linux kernel as Dom0 again, trying to write 0xabcd into the
MSR. Xen silently drops the write (expected), but the subsequent read
will return the value in the register, which just happens to be the
expected magic value. Thus the test misleadingly succeeds, leaving
the kernel in the belief that the PMU is available. This will trigger
the following message:

was already reserved, and the function was called with waiting reserves

However, all current reservers of a bo on the ddestroy list would
atomically take the bo off the list after a successful reserve so this

9 years agoperf tools: do not flush maps on COMM for perf report
Luigi Semenzato [Tue, 21 Aug 2012 21:52:20 +0000 (14:52 -0700)]
perf tools: do not flush maps on COMM for perf report

This fixes a long-standing bug caused by the lack of separate COMM and EXEC
record types, which makes "perf report" lose track of symbols when a process
renames itself.

With this fix (suggested by Stephane Eranian), a COMM (rename) no longer
flushes the maps, which is the correct behavior.  An EXEC also no longer
flushes the maps, but this doesn't matter because as new mappings are created
(for the executable and the libraries) the old mappings are automatically
removed.  This is not by accident: the functionality is necessary because DLLs
can be explicitly loaded at any time with dlopen(), possibly on top of existing
text, so "perf report" handles correctly the clobbering of new mappings on top
of old ones.

An alternative patch (which I proposed earlier) would be to introduce a
separate PERF_RECORD_EXEC type, but it is a much larger change (about 300
lines) and is not necessary.

arm64: fix alignment padding in assembly code

An interesting effect of using the generic version of linkage.h
is that the padding is defined in terms of x86 NOPs, which can have
even more interesting effects when the assembly code looks like this:

ENTRY(func1)
mov x0, xzr
ENDPROC(func1)
// fall through
ENTRY(func2)
mov x0, #1
ret
ENDPROC(func2)

Admittedly, the code is not very nice. But having code from another
architecture doesn't look completely sane either.

The fix is to add arm64's version of linkage.h, which causes the insertion
of proper AArch64 NOPs.

MODSIGN: Move the magic string to the end of a module and eliminate the search

Emit the magic string that indicates a module has a signature after the
signature data instead of before it.  This allows module_sig_check() to
be made simpler and faster by the elimination of the search for the
magic string.  Instead we just need to do a single memcmp().

This works because at the end of the signature data there is the
fixed-length signature information block.  This block then falls
immediately prior to the magic number.

From the contents of the information block, it is trivial to calculate
the size of the signature data and thus the size of the actual module
data.
