Subject[PATCH 3.18 29/39] arm64: Fix up /proc/cpuinfo
Date
3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Mark Rutland <mark.rutland@arm.com>

commit 44b82b7700d05a52cd983799d3ecde1a976b3bed upstream.

Commit d7a49086f263164a (arm64: cpuinfo: print info for all CPUs)
attempted to clean up /proc/cpuinfo, but due to concerns regarding
further changes was reverted in commit 5e39977edf6500fd (Revert "arm64:
cpuinfo: print info for all CPUs").

There are two major issues with the arm64 /proc/cpuinfo format
currently:

* The "Features" line describes (only) the 64-bit hwcaps, which is
problematic for some 32-bit applications which attempt to parse it. As
the same names are used for analogous ISA features (e.g. aes) despite
these generally being architecturally unrelated, it is not possible to
simply append the 64-bit and 32-bit hwcaps in a manner that might not
be misleading to some applications.

Various potential solutions have appeared in vendor kernels. Typically
the format of the Features line varies depending on whether the task
is 32-bit.

* Information is only printed regarding a single CPU. This does not
match the ARM format, and does not provide sufficient information in
big.LITTLE systems where CPUs are heterogeneous. The CPU information
printed is queried from the current CPU's registers, which is racy
w.r.t. cross-cpu migration.

This patch attempts to solve these issues. The following changes are
made:

* When a task with a LINUX32 personality attempts to read /proc/cpuinfo,
the "Features" line contains the decoded 32-bit hwcaps, as with the
arm port. Otherwise, the decoded 64-bit hwcaps are shown. This aligns
with the behaviour of COMPAT_UTS_MACHINE and COMPAT_ELF_PLATFORM. In
the absense of compat support, the Features line is empty.

The set of hwcaps injected into a task's auxval are unaffected.

* Properties are printed per-cpu, as with the ARM port. The per-cpu
information is queried from pre-recorded cpu information (as used by
the sanity checks).

* As with the previous attempt at fixing up /proc/cpuinfo, the hardware
field is removed. The only users so far are 32-bit applications tied
to particular boards, so no portable applications should be affected,
and this should prevent future tying to particular boards.

The following differences remain:

* No model_name is printed, as this cannot be queried from the hardware
and cannot be provided in a stable fashion. Use of the CPU
{implementor,variant,part,revision} fields is sufficient to identify a
CPU and is portable across arm and arm64.

* The following system-wide properties are not provided, as they are not
possible to provide generally. Programs relying on these are already
tied to particular (32-bit only) boards:
- Hardware
- Revision
- Serial

No software has yet been identified for which these remaining
differences are problematic.
