Subject[PATCH v8 0/9] powerpc: Switch to CONFIG_THREAD_INFO_IN_TASK
Date
The purpose of this serie is to activate CONFIG_THREAD_INFO_IN_TASK which
moves the thread_info into task_struct.

Moving thread_info into task_struct has the following advantages:
- It protects thread_info from corruption in the case of stack
overflows.
- Its address is harder to determine if stack addresses are
leaked, making a number of attacks more difficult.

Changes since v7:
- Rebased on fb6c6ce7907d ("Automatic merge of branches 'master', 'next' and 'fixes' into merge")

Changes since v6:
- Fixed validate_sp() to exclude NULL sp in 'regain entire stack space' patch (early crash with CONFIG_KMEMLEAK)

Changes since v5:
- Fixed livepatch_sp setup by using end_of_stack() instead of hardcoding
- Fixed PPC_BPF_LOAD_CPU() macro

Changes since v4:
- Fixed a build failure on 32bits SMP when include/generated/asm-offsets.h is not
already existing, was due to spaces instead of a tab in the Makefile

Changes since RFC v3: (based on Nick's review)
- Renamed task_size.h to task_size_user64.h to better relate to what it contains.
- Handling of the isolation of thread_info cpu field inside CONFIG_SMP #ifdefs moved to a separate patch.
- Removed CURRENT_THREAD_INFO macro completely.
- Added a guard in asm/smp.h to avoid build failure before _TASK_CPU is defined.
- Added a patch at the end to rename 'tp' pointers to 'sp' pointers
- Renamed 'tp' into 'sp' pointers in preparation patch when relevant
- Fixed a few commit logs
- Fixed checkpatch report.

Changes since RFC v2:
- Removed the modification of names in asm-offsets
- Created a rule in arch/powerpc/Makefile to append the offset of current->cpu in CFLAGS
- Modified asm/smp.h to use the offset set in CFLAGS
- Squashed the renaming of THREAD_INFO to TASK_STACK in the preparation patch
- Moved the modification of current_pt_regs in the patch activating CONFIG_THREAD_INFO_IN_TASK

Changes since RFC v1:
- Removed the first patch which was modifying header inclusion order in timer
- Modified some names in asm-offsets to avoid conflicts when including asm-offsets in C files
- Modified asm/smp.h to avoid having to include linux/sched.h (using asm-offsets instead)
- Moved some changes from the activation patch to the preparation patch.

Christophe Leroy (9):
book3s/64: avoid circular header inclusion in mmu-hash.h
powerpc: Only use task_struct 'cpu' field on SMP
powerpc: Prepare for moving thread_info into task_struct
powerpc: Activate CONFIG_THREAD_INFO_IN_TASK
powerpc: regain entire stack space
powerpc: 'current_set' is now a table of task_struct pointers
powerpc/32: Remove CURRENT_THREAD_INFO and rename TI_CPU
powerpc/64: Remove CURRENT_THREAD_INFO
powerpc: clean stack pointers naming
