Subject[RFC PATCH for 4.21 00/16] rseq updates, new cpu_opv system call
Date
Hi,

Considering it's already late in the 4.19 rc cycle, I'm submitting this
patchset as RFC for 4.21 to give everyone plenty of time to provide
feedback.

This series contain:

- rseq selftests (this could be 4.20 material):
- Added reference counter within user-space __rseq_abi structure, for
integration of rseq application/libraries with future use by glibc,
- Adapt number of threads to the number of online cpus.

- cpu_opv (4.21 material):
- Implement push_task_to_cpu() (scheduler),
- Introduce vm_map_user_ram()/vm_unmap_user_ram() (mm),
- Provide is_vma_noncached() (mm),
- Introduce cpu_opv system call, with vmap space limiting,
- Wire up cpu_opv on x86, powerpc, arm,
- Provide cpu_opv selftests.

The cpu_opv system call covers the use-cases that rseq does not handle,
namely single-stepping with debuggers, moving data between per-cpu data
structures without interfering with cpu affinity masks, and using rseq
from signal handlers nested between thread creation and rseq
registration by glibc, or between rseq unregistration by glibc and
thread teardown.

Thanks,

Mathieu
