Pull MIPS fixes from Ralf Baechle:
"Another round of MIPS fixes for 4.2. No area does particularly stand
out but we have a two unpleasant ones:
- Kernel ptes are marked with a global bit which allows the kernel to
share kernel TLB entries between all processes. For this to work
both entries of an adjacent even/odd pte pair need to have the
global bit set. There has been a subtle race in setting the other
entry's global bit since ~ 2000 but it take particularly
pathological workloads that essentially do mostly vmalloc/vfree to
This pull request fixes the 64-bit case but leaves the case of 32
bit CPUs with 64 bit ptes unsolved for now. The unfixed cases
affect hardware that is not available in the field yet.
- Instruction emulation requires loading instructions from user space
but the current fast but simplistic approach will fail on pages
that are PROT_EXEC but !PROT_READ. For this reason we temporarily
do not permit this permission and will map pages with PROT_EXEC |
The remainder of this pull request is more or less across the field
and the short log explains them well"
