      crypto: Replaced gcc specific attributes with macros from compiler.h · d8c34b94
      Gideon Israel Dsouza authored
      Continuing from this commit: 52f5684c
      ("kernel: use macros from compiler.h instead of __attribute__((...))")
      
      I submitted 4 total patches. They are part of task I've taken up to
      increase compiler portability in the kernel. I've cleaned up the
      subsystems under /kernel /mm /block and /security, this patch targets
      /crypto.
      
      There is <linux/compiler.h> which provides macros for various gcc specific
      constructs. Eg: __weak for __attribute__((weak)). I've cleaned all
      instances of gcc specific attributes with the right macros for the crypto
      subsystem.
      
      I had to make one additional change into compiler-gcc.h for the case when
      one wants to use this: __attribute__((aligned) and not specify an alignment
      factor. From the gcc docs, this will result in the largest alignment for
      that data type on the target machine so I've named the macro
      __aligned_largest. Please advise if another name is more appropriate.

      crypto: rng - Do not free default RNG when it becomes unused · 7cecadb7
      Herbert Xu authored
      Currently we free the default RNG when its use count hits zero.
      This was OK when the IV generators would latch onto the RNG at
      instance creation time and keep it until the instance is torn
      down.
      
      Now that IV generators only keep the RNG reference during init
      time this scheme causes the default RNG to come and go at a high
      frequencey.  This is highly undesirable as we want to keep a single
      RNG in use unless the admin wants it to be removed.
      
      This patch changes the scheme so that the system RNG once allocated
      is never removed unless a specifically requested.

      crypto: user - fix info leaks in report API · 9a5467bf
      Mathias Krause authored
      Three errors resulting in kernel memory disclosure:
      
      1/ The structures used for the netlink based crypto algorithm report API
      are located on the stack. As snprintf() does not fill the remainder of
      the buffer with null bytes, those stack bytes will be disclosed to users
      of the API. Switch to strncpy() to fix this.
      
      2/ crypto_report_one() does not initialize all field of struct
      crypto_user_alg. Fix this to fix the heap info leak.
      
      3/ For the module name we should copy only as many bytes as
      module_name() returns -- not as much as the destination buffer could
      hold. But the current code does not and therefore copies random data
      from behind the end of the module name, as the module name is always
      shorter than CRYPTO_MAX_ALG_NAME.
      
      Also switch to use strncpy() to copy the algorithm's name and
      driver_name. They are strings, after all.

      include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking... · 5a0e3ad6
      Tejun Heo authored
      include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking implicit slab.h inclusion from percpu.h
      
      percpu.h is included by sched.h and module.h and thus ends up being
      included when building most .c files.  percpu.h includes slab.h which
      in turn includes gfp.h making everything defined by the two files
      universally available and complicating inclusion dependencies.
      
      percpu.h -> slab.h dependency is about to be removed.  Prepare for
      this change by updating users of gfp and slab facilities include those
      headers directly instead of assuming availability.  As this conversion
      needs to touch large number of source files, the following script is
      used as the basis of conversion.
      
        http://userweb.kernel.org/~tj/misc/slabh-sweep.py
      
      The script does the followings.
      
      * Scan files for gfp and slab usages and update includes such that
        only the necessary includes are there.  ie. if only gfp is used,
        gfp.h, if slab is used, slab.h.
      
      * When the script inserts a new include, it looks at the include
        blocks and try to put the new include such that its order conforms
        to its surrounding.  It's put in the include block which contains
        core kernel includes, in the same order that the rest are ordered -
        alphabetical, Christmas tree, rev-Xmas-tree or at the end if there
        doesn't seem to be any matching order.
      
      * If the script can't find a place to put a new include (mostly
        because the file doesn't have fitting include block), it prints out
        an error message indicating which .h file needs to be added to the
        file.
      
      The conversion was done in the following steps.
      
      1. The initial automatic conversion of all .c files updated slightly
         over 4000 files, deleting around 700 includes and adding ~480 gfp.h
         and ~3000 slab.h inclusions.  The script emitted errors for ~400
         files.
      
      2. Each error was manually checked.  Some didn't need the inclusion,
         some needed manual addition while adding it to implementation .h or
         embedding .c file was more appropriate for others.  This step added
         inclusions to around 150 files.
      
      3. The script was run again and the output was compared to the edits
         from #2 to make sure no file was left behind.
      
      4. Several build tests were done and a couple of problems were fixed.
         e.g. lib/decompress_*.c used malloc/free() wrappers around slab
         APIs requiring slab.h to be added manually.
      
      5. The script was run on all .h files but without automatically
         editing them as sprinkling gfp.h and slab.h inclusions around .h
         files could easily lead to inclusion dependency hell.  Most gfp.h
         inclusion directives were ignored as stuff from gfp.h was usually
         wildly available and often used in preprocessor macros.  Each
         slab.h inclusion directive was examined and added manually as
         necessary.
      
      6. percpu.h was updated not to include slab.h.
      
      7. Build test were done on the following configurations and failures
         were fixed.  CONFIG_GCOV_KERNEL was turned off for all tests (as my
         distributed build env didn't work with gcov compiles) and a few
         more options had to be turned off depending on archs to make things
         build (like ipr on powerpc/64 which failed due to missing writeq).
      
         * x86 and x86_64 UP and SMP allmodconfig and a custom test config.
         * powerpc and powerpc64 SMP allmodconfig
         * sparc and sparc64 SMP allmodconfig
         * ia64 SMP allmodconfig
         * s390 SMP allmodconfig
         * alpha SMP allmodconfig
         * um on x86_64 SMP allmodconfig
      
      8. percpu.h modifications were reverted so that it could be applied as
         a separate patch and serve as bisection point.
      
      Given the fact that I had only a couple of failures from tests on step
      6, I'm fairly confident about the coverage of this conversion patch.
      If there is a breakage, it's likely to be something in one of the arch
      headers which should be easily discoverable easily on most builds of
      the specific arch.
