Subject[PATCH v3 00/24] ban the use of _PAGE_XXX flags outside platform specific code
Date
Today flags like for instance _PAGE_RW or _PAGE_USER are used through
common parts of code.
Using those directly in common parts of code have proven to lead to
mistakes or misbehaviour, because their use is not always as trivial
as one could think.

For instance, (flags & _PAGE_USER) == 0 isn't enough to tell
that a page is a kernel page, because some targets are using
_PAGE_PRIVILEDGED and not _PAGE_USER, so the test has to be
(flags & (_PAGE_USER | _PAGE_PRIVILEDGED)) == _PAGE_PRIVILEDGED
This has too (bad) consequences:

- All targets must define every bit, even the unsupported ones,
leading to a lot of useless #define _PAGE_XXX 0
- If someone forgets to take into account all possible _PAGE_XXX bits
for the case, we can get unexpected behaviour on some targets.

This becomes even more complex when we come to using _PAGE_RW.
Testing (flags & _PAGE_RW) is not enough to test whether a page
if writable or not, because:

- Some targets have _PAGE_RO instead, which has to be unset to tell
a page is writable
- Some targets have _PAGE_R and _PAGE_W, in which case
_PAGE_RW = _PAGE_R | _PAGE_W
- Even knowing whether a page is readable is not always trivial because:
- Some targets requires to check that _PAGE_R is set to ensure page
is readable
- Some targets requires to check that _PAGE_NA is not set
- Some targets requires to check that _PAGE_RO or _PAGE_RW is set

Etc ....

In order to work around all those issues and minimise the risks of errors,
this serie aims at removing all use of _PAGE_XXX flags from powerpc code
and always use pte_xxx() and pte_mkxxx() accessors instead. Those accessors
are then defined in platform specific parts of the kernel code.

Compared to the RFC, v2 adds three things:
- A work on ioremap() alike functions: properly set the base flags
by all callers and removed the hack which sets the base flags when
the caller don't give them.
- _PAGE_EXEC flag is replaced by a bool in the call to hash_preload()
- Optimisation of pte_mkXXX() helpers on book3s64 to avoid multiple
endian conversions.

v2:
- Takes into account comments received on the RFC.
- compilation test result: http://kisskb.ellerman.id.au/kisskb/head/51b7f5d55900688c7c07cdb945d34b3314befa36/

v3:
- rebased on lastest 'merge' powerpc branch
- added a new helper pte_hw_valid() and using it in set_pte_at(), see discussion at https://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/972630/
- compilation result: http://kisskb.ellerman.id.au/kisskb/head/914a399c8f1434f3c52013e625fb1665571033ef/
