      x86/mm: Implement ASLR for kernel memory regions · 0483e1fa
      Thomas Garnier authored
      Randomizes the virtual address space of kernel memory regions for
      x86_64. This first patch adds the infrastructure and does not randomize
      any region. The following patches will randomize the physical memory
      mapping, vmalloc and vmemmap regions.
      This security feature mitigates exploits relying on predictable kernel
      addresses. These addresses can be used to disclose the kernel modules
      base addresses or corrupt specific structures to elevate privileges
      bypassing the current implementation of KASLR. This feature can be
      enabled with the CONFIG_RANDOMIZE_MEMORY option.
      The order of each memory region is not changed. The feature looks at the
      available space for the regions based on different configuration options
      and randomizes the base and space between each. The size of the physical
      memory mapping is the available physical memory. No performance impact
      was detected while testing the feature.
      Entropy is generated using the KASLR early boot functions now shared in
      the lib directory (originally written by Kees Cook). Randomization is
      done on PGD & PUD page table levels to increase possible addresses. The
      physical memory mapping code was adapted to support PUD level virtual
      addresses. This implementation on the best configuration provides 30,000
      possible virtual addresses in average for each memory region.  An
      additional low memory page is used to ensure each CPU can start with a
      PGD aligned virtual address (for realmode).
      x86/dump_pagetable was updated to correctly display each region.
      Updated documentation on x86_64 memory layout accordingly.
      Performance data, after all patches in the series:
      Kernbench shows almost no difference (-+ less than 1%):

      Documentation/x86: Update EFI memory region description · ff3d0a12
      Matt Fleming authored
      Make it clear that the EFI page tables are only available during
      EFI runtime calls since that subject has come up a fair numbers
      of times in the past.
      Additionally, add the EFI region start and end addresses to the
      table so that it's possible to see at a glance where they fall
      in relation to other regions.

      x86/mm/mtrr: Remove kernel internal MTRR interfaces: unexport mtrr_add() and mtrr_del() · 2baa891e
      Luis R. Rodriguez authored
      The effort to replace mtrr_add() with architecture agnostic
      arch_phys_wc_add() is complete, this will ensure write-combining
      implementations (PAT on x86) is taken advantage instead of using
      MTRR. With the effort done now, hide direct MTRR access for
      The legacy user-space /proc/mtrr ABI is not affected.
      Update x86 documentation on MTRR to reflect the completion of
      the phasing out of direct access to MTRR, also add a note on
      platform firmware code use of MTRRs based on the obituary
      discussion of MTRRs on Linux [0].

      x86/asm/entry: Rename compat syscall entry points · 2cd23553

      Rename the following system call entry points:
      	ia32_cstar_target       -> entry_SYSCALL_compat
      	ia32_syscall            -> entry_INT80_compat
      The generic naming scheme for x86 system call entry points is:
      where 'qualifier' is one of _32, _64 or _compat.

      x86/mm/KASLR: Propagate KASLR status to kernel proper · 78cac48c
      Borislav Petkov authored
        e2b32e67 ("x86, kaslr: randomize module base load address")
      made module base address randomization unconditional and didn't regard
      disabled KKASLR due to CONFIG_HIBERNATION and command line option
      "nokaslr". For more info see (now reverted) commit:
        f47233c2 ("x86/mm/ASLR: Propagate base load address calculation")
      In order to propagate KASLR status to kernel proper, we need a single bit
      in boot_params.hdr.loadflags and we've chosen bit 1 thus leaving the
      top-down allocated bits for bits supposed to be used by the bootloader.

      x86_64: add KASan support · ef7f0d6a
      Andrey Ryabinin authored
      This patch adds arch specific code for kernel address sanitizer.
      16TB of virtual addressed used for shadow memory.  It's located in range
      [ffffec0000000000 - fffffc0000000000] between vmemmap and %esp fixup
      At early stage we map whole shadow region with zero page.  Latter, after
      pages mapped to direct mapping address range we unmap zero pages from
      corresponding shadow (see kasan_map_shadow()) and allocate and map a real
      shadow memory reusing vmemmap_populate() function.
      Also replace __pa with __pa_nodebug before shadow initialized.  __pa with
      CONFIG_DEBUG_VIRTUAL=y make external function call (__phys_addr)
      __phys_addr is instrumented, so __asan_load could be called before shadow
      area initialized.

      x86, entry: Switch stacks on a paranoid entry from userspace · 48e08d0f
      Andy Lutomirski authored
      This causes all non-NMI, non-double-fault kernel entries from
      userspace to run on the normal kernel stack.  Double-fault is
      exempt to minimize confusion if we double-fault directly from
      userspace due to a bad kernel stack.
      This is, suprisingly, simpler and shorter than the current code.  It
      removes the IMO rather frightening paranoid_userspace path, and it
      make sync_regs much simpler.
      There is no risk of stack overflow due to this change -- the kernel
      stack that we switch to is empty.
      This will also enable us to create non-atomic sections within
      machine checks from userspace, which will simplify memory failure
      handling.  It will also allow the upcoming fsgsbase code to be
      simplified, because it doesn't need to worry about usergs when
      scheduling in paranoid_exit, as that code no longer exists.
