      s390: disable gcc plugins · 2fba3573
      Martin Schwidefsky authored
      The s390 build currently fails with the latent entropy plugin:
      arch/s390/kernel/als.o: In function `verify_facilities':
      als.c:(.init.text+0x24): undefined reference to `latent_entropy'
      als.c:(.init.text+0xae): undefined reference to `latent_entropy'
      make[3]: *** [arch/s390/boot/compressed/vmlinux] Error 1
      make[2]: *** [arch/s390/boot/compressed/vmlinux] Error 2
      make[1]: *** [bzImage] Error 2
      This will be fixed with the early boot rework from Vasily, which
      is planned for the 4.19 merge window.
      For 4.18 the simplest solution is to disable the gcc plugins and
      reenable them after the early boot rework is upstream.

      mm: introduce ARCH_HAS_PTE_SPECIAL · 3010a5ea
      Laurent Dufour authored
      Currently the PTE special supports is turned on in per architecture
      header files.  Most of the time, it is defined in
      arch/*/include/asm/pgtable.h depending or not on some other per
      architecture static definition.
      This patch introduce a new configuration variable to manage this
      directly in the Kconfig files.  It would later replace
      Here notes for some architecture where the definition of
      __HAVE_ARCH_PTE_SPECIAL is not obvious:
       __HAVE_ARCH_PTE_SPECIAL which is currently defined in
      arch/arm/include/asm/pgtable-3level.h which is included by
      arch/arm/include/asm/pgtable.h when CONFIG_ARM_LPAE is set.
      __HAVE_ARCH_PTE_SPECIAL is defined in 2 files:
       - arch/powerpc/include/asm/book3s/64/pgtable.h
       - arch/powerpc/include/asm/pte-common.h
      The first one is included if (PPC_BOOK3S & PPC64) while the second is
      included in all the other cases.
      So select ARCH_HAS_PTE_SPECIAL all the time.
      __HAVE_ARCH_PTE_SPECIAL is defined if defined(__sparc__) &&
      defined(__arch64__) which are defined through the compiler in
      sparc/Makefile if !SPARC32 which I assume to be if SPARC64.
      So select ARCH_HAS_PTE_SPECIAL if SPARC64
      There is no functional change introduced by this patch.

      s390: introduce execute-trampolines for branches · f19fbd5e
      Martin Schwidefsky authored
      Add CONFIG_EXPOLINE to enable the use of the new -mindirect-branch= and
      -mfunction_return= compiler options to create a kernel fortified against
      the specte v2 attack.
      With CONFIG_EXPOLINE=y all indirect branches will be issued with an
      execute type instruction. For z10 or newer the EXRL instruction will
      be used, for older machines the EX instruction. The typical indirect
      	basr	%r14,%r1
      is replaced with a PC relative call to a new thunk
      	brasl	%r14,__s390x_indirect_jump_r1
      The thunk contains the EXRL/EX instruction to the indirect branch
      	exrl	0,0f
      	j	.
      0:	br	%r1
      The detour via the execute type instruction has a performance impact.
      To get rid of the detour the new kernel parameter "nospectre_v2" and
      "spectre_v2=[on,off,auto]" can be used. If the parameter is specified
      the kernel and module code will be patched at runtime.

      License cleanup: add SPDX GPL-2.0 license identifier to files with no license · b2441318
      Greg Kroah-Hartman authored
      Many source files in the tree are missing licensing information, which
      makes it harder for compliance tools to determine the correct license.
      By default all files without license information are under the default
      license of the kernel, which is GPL version 2.
      Update the files which contain no license information with the 'GPL-2.0'
      SPDX license identifier.  The SPDX identifier is a legally binding
      shorthand, which can be used instead of the full boiler plate text.
      This patch is based on work done by Thomas Gleixner and Kate Stewart and
      Philippe Ombredanne.
      How this work was done:
      Patches were generated and checked against linux-4.14-rc6 for a subset of
      the use cases:
       - file had no licensing information it it.
       - file was a */uapi/* one with no licensing information in it,
       - file was a */uapi/* one with existing licensing information,
      Further patches will be generated in subsequent months to fix up cases
      where non-standard license headers were used, and references to license
      had to be inferred by heuristics based on keywords.
      The analysis to determine which SPDX License Identifier to be applied to
      a file was done in a spreadsheet of side by side results from of the
      output of two independent scanners (ScanCode & Windriver) producing SPDX
      tag:value files created by Philippe Ombredanne.  Philippe prepared the
      base worksheet, and did an initial spot review of a few 1000 files.
      The 4.13 kernel was the starting point of the analysis with 60,537 files
      assessed.  Kate Stewart did a file by file comparison of the scanner
      results in the spreadsheet to determine which SPDX license identifier(s)
      to be applied to the file. She confirmed any determination that was not
      immediately clear with lawyers working with the Linux Foundation.
      Criteria used to select files for SPDX license identifier tagging was:
       - Files considered eligible had to be source code files.
       - Make and config files were included as candidates if they contained >5
         lines of source
       - File already had some variant of a license header in it (even if <5
      All documentation files were explicitly excluded.
      The following heuristics were used to determine which SPDX license
      identifiers to apply.
       - when both scanners couldn't find any license traces, file was
         considered to have no license information in it, and the top level
         COPYING file license applied.
         For non */uapi/* files that summary was:
         SPDX license identifier                            # files
         GPL-2.0                                              11139
         and resulted in the first patch in this series.
         If that file was a */uapi/* path one, it was "GPL-2.0 WITH
         Linux-syscall-note" otherwise it was "GPL-2.0".  Results of that was:
         SPDX license identifier                            # files
         GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note                        930
         and resulted in the second patch in this series.
       - if a file had some form of licensing information in it, and was one
         of the */uapi/* ones, it was denoted with the Linux-syscall-note if
         any GPL family license was found in the file or had no licensing in
         it (per prior point).  Results summary:
         SPDX license identifier                            # files
         GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note                       270
         GPL-2.0+ WITH Linux-syscall-note                      169
         ((GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note) OR BSD-2-Clause)    21
         ((GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note) OR BSD-3-Clause)    17
         LGPL-2.1+ WITH Linux-syscall-note                      15
         GPL-1.0+ WITH Linux-syscall-note                       14
         ((GPL-2.0+ WITH Linux-syscall-note) OR BSD-3-Clause)    5
         LGPL-2.0+ WITH Linux-syscall-note                       4
         LGPL-2.1 WITH Linux-syscall-note                        3
         ((GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note) OR MIT)              3
         ((GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note) AND MIT)             1
         and that resulted in the third patch in this series.
       - when the two scanners agreed on the detected license(s), that became
         the concluded license(s).
       - when there was disagreement between the two scanners (one detected a
         license but the other didn't, or they both detected different
         licenses) a manual inspection of the file occurred.
       - In most cases a manual inspection of the information in the file
         resulted in a clear resolution of the license that should apply (and
         which scanner probably needed to revisit its heuristics).
       - When it was not immediately clear, the license identifier was
         confirmed with lawyers working with the Linux Foundation.
       - If there was any question as to the appropriate license identifier,
         the file was flagged for further research and to be revisited later
         in time.
      In total, over 70 hours of logged manual review was done on the
      spreadsheet to determine the SPDX license identifiers to apply to the
      source files by Kate, Philippe, Thomas and, in some cases, confirmation
      by lawyers working with the Linux Foundation.
      Kate also obtained a third independent scan of the 4.13 code base from
      FOSSology, and compared selected files where the other two scanners
      disagreed against that SPDX file, to see if there was new insights.  The
      Windriver scanner is based on an older version of FOSSology in part, so
      they are related.
      Thomas did random spot checks in about 500 files from the spreadsheets
      for the uapi headers and agreed with SPDX license identifier in the
      files he inspected. For the non-uapi files Thomas did random spot checks
      in about 15000 files.
      In initial set of patches against 4.14-rc6, 3 files were found to have
      copy/paste license identifier errors, and have been fixed to reflect the
      correct identifier.
      Additionally Philippe spent 10 hours this week doing a detailed manual
      inspection and review of the 12,461 patched files from the initial patch
      version early this week with:
       - a full scancode scan run, collecting the matched texts, detected
         license ids and scores
       - reviewing anything where there was a license detected (about 500+
         files) to ensure that the applied SPDX license was correct
       - reviewing anything where there was no detection but the patch license
         was not GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note to ensure that the applied
         SPDX license was correct
      This produced a worksheet with 20 files needing minor correction.  This
      worksheet was then exported into 3 different .csv files for the
      different types of files to be modified.
      These .csv files were then reviewed by Greg.  Thomas wrote a script to
      parse the csv files and add the proper SPDX tag to the file, in the
      format that the file expected.  This script was further refined by Greg
      based on the output to detect more types of files automatically and to
      distinguish between header and source .c files (which need different
      comment types.)  Finally Greg ran the script using the .csv files to
      generate the patches.

      s390: introduce CPU alternatives · 686140a1
      Vasily Gorbik authored
      Implement CPU alternatives, which allows to optionally patch newer
      instructions at runtime, based on CPU facilities availability.
      A new kernel boot parameter "noaltinstr" disables patching.
      Current implementation is derived from x86 alternatives. Although
      ideal instructions padding (when altinstr is longer then oldinstr)
      is added at compile time, and no oldinstr nops optimization has to be
      done at runtime. Also couple of compile time sanity checks are done:
      1. oldinstr and altinstr must be <= 254 bytes long,
      2. oldinstr and altinstr must not have an odd length.
      alternative(oldinstr, altinstr, facility);
      alternative_2(oldinstr, altinstr1, facility1, altinstr2, facility2);
      Both compile time and runtime padding consists of either 6/4/2 bytes nop
      or a jump (brcl) + 2 bytes nop filler if padding is longer then 6 bytes.
      .altinstructions and .altinstr_replacement sections are part of
      __init_begin : __init_end region and are freed after initialization.

      s390/kvm: avoid global config of vm.alloc_pgste=1 · 23fefe11
      Martin Schwidefsky authored
      The system control vm.alloc_pgste is used to control the size of the
      page tables, either 2K or 4K. The idea is that a KVM host sets the
      vm.alloc_pgste control to 1 which causes *all* new processes to run
      with 4K page tables. For a non-kvm system the control should stay off
      to save on memory used for page tables.
      Trouble is that distributions choose to set the control globally to
      be able to run KVM guests. This wastes memory on non-KVM systems.
      Introduce the PT_S390_PGSTE ELF segment type to "mark" the qemu
      executable with it. All executables with this (empty) segment in
      its ELF phdr array will be started with 4K page tables. Any executable
      without PT_S390_PGSTE will run with the default 2K page tables.
      This removes the need to set vm.alloc_pgste=1 for a KVM host and
      minimizes the waste of memory for page tables.
