Subject[PATCH 01/24] x86/mm/kaiser: Disable global pages by default with KAISER
Date
From: Dave Hansen <dave.hansen@linux.intel.com>

Global pages stay in the TLB across context switches. Since all contexts
share the same kernel mapping, these mappings are marked as global pages
so kernel entries in the TLB are not flushed out on a context switch.

But, even having these entries in the TLB opens up something that an
attacker can use, such as the double-page-fault attack:

http://www.ieee-security.org/TC/SP2013/papers/4977a191.pdf

That means that even when KAISER switches page tables on return to user
space the global pages would stay in the TLB cache.

Disable global pages so that kernel TLB entries can be flushed before
returning to user space. This way, all accesses to kernel addresses from
userspace result in a TLB miss independent of the existence of a kernel
mapping.

Replace _PAGE_GLOBAL by __PAGE_KERNEL_GLOBAL and keep _PAGE_GLOBAL
available so that it can still be used for a few selected kernel mappings
which must be visible to userspace, when KAISER is enabled, like the
entry/exit code and data.
