6 years 7 months vm: add no-mmu vm_iomap_memory() stub

I think we could just move the full vm_iomap_memory() function into
util.h or similar, but I didn't get any reply from anybody actually
using nommu even to this trivial patch, so I'm not going to touch it any
more than required.

Here's the fairly minimal stub to make the nommu case at least
potentially work. It doesn't seem like anybody cares, though.

"I know it's *very* late in the 3.9 release cycle, but since there
aren't that many people testing the parisc linux kernel, a few (for
our port) critical issues just showed up a few days back for the first
time.

What's in it?
- add missing __ucmpdi2 symbol, which is required for btrfs on 32bit
kernel.
- change kunmap() macro to static inline function. This fixes a
debian/gcc-4.4 build error.
- add locking when doing PTE updates. This fixes random userspace
crashes.
- disable (optional) -mlong-calls compiler option for modules, else
modules can't be loaded at runtime.
- a smart patch by Will Deacon which fixes 64bit put_user() warnings
on 32bit kernel."

6 years 7 months efivars: only check for duplicates on the registered list

variable_is_present() accesses '__efivars' directly, but when called via
gsmi_init() Michel reports observing the following crash,

BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at (null)
IP: variable_is_present+0x55/0x170
Call Trace:
register_efivars+0x106/0x370
gsmi_init+0x2ad/0x3da
do_one_initcall+0x3f/0x170

The reason for the crash is that '__efivars' hasn't been initialised nor
has it been registered with register_efivars() by the time the google
EFI SMI driver runs. The gsmi code uses its own struct efivars, and
therefore, a different variable list. Fix the above crash by passing
the registered struct efivars to variable_is_present(), so that we
traverse the correct list.

In commit b0de59b5733d ("TTY: do not update atime/mtime on read/write")
we removed timestamps from tty inodes to fix a security issue and waited
if something breaks. Well, 'w', the utility to find out logged users
and their inactivity time broke. It shows that users are inactive since
the time they logged in.

To revert to the old behaviour while still preventing attackers to
guess the password length, we update the timestamps in one-minute
intervals by this patch.

* The EFI variable anti-bricking algorithm merged in -rc8 broke booting
on some Apple machines because they implement EFI spec 1.10, which
doesn't provide a QueryVariableInfo() runtime function and the logic
used to check for the existence of that function was insufficient.
Fix from Josh Boyer.

* The anti-bricking algorithm also introduced a compiler warning on
32-bit. Fix from Borislav Petkov.

6 years 7 months parisc: use spin_lock_irqsave/spin_unlock_irqrestore for PTE updates

User applications running on SMP kernels have long suffered from instability
and random segmentation faults. This patch improves the situation although
there is more work to be done.

One of the problems is the various routines in pgtable.h that update page table
entries use different locking mechanisms, or no lock at all (set_pte_at). This
change modifies the routines to all use the same lock pa_dbit_lock. This lock
is used for dirty bit updates in the interruption code. The patch also purges
the TLB entries associated with the PTE to ensure that inconsistent values are
not used after the page table entry is updated. The UP and SMP code are now
identical.

The change also includes a minor update to the purge_tlb_entries function in
cache.c to improve its efficiency.

6 years 7 months parisc: disable -mlong-calls compiler option for kernel modules

CONFIG_MLONGCALLS was introduced in commit
ec758f98328da3eb933a25dc7a2eed01ef44d849 to overcome linker issues when linking
huge linux kernels, e.g. with many modules linked in.

But in the kernel module loader there is no support yet for the new relocation
types, which is why modules built with -mlong-calls can't be loaded.
Furthermore, for modules long calls are not really necessary, since we already
use stub sections which resolve long distance calls.

So, let's just disable this compiler option when compiling kernel modules.

6 years 7 months parisc: uaccess: fix compiler warnings caused by __put_user casting

When targetting 32-bit processors, __put_user emits a pair of stw
instructions for the 8-byte case. If the type of __val is a pointer, the
marshalling code casts it to the wider integer type of u64, resulting
in the following compiler warnings:

kernel/signal.c: In function 'copy_siginfo_to_user':
kernel/signal.c:2752:11: warning: cast from pointer to integer of different size [-Wpointer-to-int-cast]
kernel/signal.c:2752:11: warning: cast from pointer to integer of different size [-Wpointer-to-int-cast]
[...]

This patch fixes the warnings by removing the marshalling code and using
the correct output modifiers in the __put_{user,kernel}_asm64 macros
so that GCC will allocate the right registers without the need to
extract the two words explicitly.

6 years 7 months efi: Check EFI revision in setup_efi_vars

We need to check the runtime sys_table for the EFI version the firmware
specifies instead of just checking for a NULL QueryVariableInfo. Older
implementations of EFI don't have QueryVariableInfo but the runtime is
a smaller structure, so the pointer to it may be pointing off into garbage.

This is apparently the case with several Apple firmwares that support EFI
1.10, and the current check causes them to no longer boot. Fix based on
a suggestion from Matthew Garrett.
