When ashmem_shrink is called from direct reclaim on a user thread, a
call to do_fallocate will check for permissions against the security
policy of that user thread. It can thus fail by chance if called on a
thread that isn't permitted to modify the relevant ashmem areas.

Because we know that we have a shmem file underneath, call the shmem
implementation of fallocate directly instead of going through the
user-space interface for fallocate.

Both ashmem_mmap and ashmem_shrink take the ashmem_lock. It may
be possible for ashmem_mmap to invoke ashmem_shrink:

Avoid this deadlock by using mutex_trylock in ashmem_shrink; if the mutex
is already held, do not attempt to shrink.

Avoid holding ashmem_mutex across code that can page fault. Page faults
grab the mmap_sem for the process, which are also held by mmap calls
prior to calling ashmem_mmap, which locks ashmem_mutex. The reversed
order of locking between the two can deadlock.

The calls that can page fault are read() and the ASHMEM_SET_NAME and
ASHMEM_GET_NAME ioctls. Move the code that accesses userspace pages
outside the ashmem_mutex.

Hopefully this isn't too late for 3.12.

In commit 7dc19d5aff (convert shrinkers to new count/scan API)
the return value to PURGE_ALL_CACHES was dropped, causing -EPERM
to always be returned.

This patch re-adds the ret assignment, setting it to the the
ashmem_shrink_count(), which is the lru_count.

(Sorry this was missed in the review!)

I am beginning to understand the core concepts at play here.

I am nowhere near finished with this class - However, it is better if
I commit what I have documented so far tonight - That way, if I mess
up tomorrow morning, I can just roll back to here.

Sorry if this clutters things up. In the end, once *everything* is
documented, it will make understanding the Android staging driver
easier to understand as a programmer - Hopefully for both new developers
and current ones.

7dc19d5affd71370754a2c3d36b485810eaee7a1 28-Aug-2013 Dave Chinner <dchinner@redhat.com> drivers: convert shrinkers to new count/scan API

Convert the driver shrinkers to the new API. Most changes are compile
tested only because I either don't have the hardware or it's staging
stuff.

FWIW, the md and android code is pretty good, but the rest of it makes me
want to claw my eyes out. The amount of broken code I just encountered is
mind boggling. I've added comments explaining what is broken, but I fear
that some of the code would be best dealt with by being dragged behind the
bike shed, burying in mud up to it's neck and then run over repeatedly
with a blunt lawn mower.

Special mention goes to the zcache/zcache2 drivers. They can't co-exist
in the build at the same time, they are under different menu options in
menuconfig, they only show up when you've got the right set of mm
subsystem options configured and so even compile testing is an exercise in
pulling teeth. And that doesn't even take into account the horrible,
broken code...

Android's shared memory subsystem, Ashmem, does not support calls from a
32bit userspace in a 64 bit kernel. This patch adds support for syscalls
coming from a 32bit userspace in a 64bit kernel.

The patch has been successfully tested on ARMv8 AEM(64bit
platform model) and Versatile Express A9(32bit platform).

Problem:
There exists a path in ashmem driver that could lead to acquistion
of mm->mmap_sem, ashmem_mutex in reverse order. This could lead
to deadlock in the system.
For Example, assume that mmap is called on a ashmem region
in the context of a thread say T1.
sys_mmap_pgoff (1. acquires mm->mmap_sem)
|
--> mmap_region
|
----> ashmem_mmap (2. acquires asmem_mutex)
Now if there is a context switch after 1 and before 2,
and if another thread T2 (that shares the mm struct) invokes an
ioctl say ASHMEM_GET_NAME, this can lead to the following path

ashmem_ioctl
|
-->get_name (3. acquires ashmem_mutex)
|
---> copy_to_user (4. acquires the mm->mmap_sem)
Note that the copy_to_user could lead to a valid fault if no
physical page is allocated yet for the user address passed.
Now T1 has mmap_sem and is waiting for ashmem_mutex.
and T2 has the ashmem_mutex and is waiting for mmap_sem
Thus leading to deadlock.

Solution:
Do not call copy_to_user or copy_from_user while holding the
ahsmem_mutex. Instead copy this to a local buffer that lives
in the stack while holding this lock. This will maintain data
integrity as well never reverse the lock order.

Testing:
Created a unit test case to reproduce the problem.
Used the same to test this fix on kernel version 3.4.0
Ported the same patch to 3.8

Move actual pte filling for non-linear file mappings into the new special
vma operation: ->remap_pages().

Filesystems must implement this method to get non-linear mapping support,
if it uses filemap_fault() then generic_file_remap_pages() can be used.

Now device drivers can implement this method and obtain nonlinear vma support.

Now tmpfs supports hole-punching via fallocate(), switch madvise_remove()

madvise(,,MADV_REMOVE) support from tmpfs to ext4, ocfs2 and xfs.

There is one more user of vmtruncate_range() in our tree,
staging/android's ashmem_shrink(): convert it to use do_fallocate() too
(but if its unpinned areas are already unmapped - I don't know - then it
would do better to use shmem_truncate_range() directly).

11980c2ac4ccfad21a5f8ee9e12059f1e687bb40 21-Dec-2011 Robert Love <rlove@google.com> ashmem: Anonymous shared memory subsystem

The anonymous shared memory (ashmem) subsystem provides a
Unix-y,file-based shared memory interface to user-space. It
works like anonymous memory (e.g. mmapping fd=0) except if
you share the file descriptor via the usual means, you will
share the mapping. The shared memory can be accessed via both
mmap or file I/O. The backing store is a simple shmem file.

Additionally, ashmem introduces the concept of page pinning.
Pinned pages (the default) behave like any anonymous memory.
Unpinned pages are available to the kernel for eviction during
VM pressure. When repinning the pages, the return value
instructs user-space as to any eviction. In this manner,
user-space processes may implement caching and similar
resource management that efficiently integrates with kernel
memory management.

ashmem: Don't install fault handler for private mmaps.

Ashmem is used to create named private heaps. If this heap is backed
by a tmpfs file it will allocate two pages for every page touched.
In 2.6.27, the extra page would later be freed, but 2.6.29 does not
scan anonymous pages when running without swap so the memory is not
freed while the file is referenced. This change changes the behavior
of private ashmem mmaps to match /dev/zero instead tmpfs.

ashmem: don't require a page aligned size

This makes ashmem more similar to shmem and mmap, by
not requiring the specified size to be page aligned,
instead rounding it internally as needed.

[jstultz: Improved commit subject and included patch description
from rlove. Also moved ashmem files to staging dir, and reworked
code to avoid touching mm/shmem.c while we're in staging.]
