2019-10-24media: v4l: Add definitions for HEVC stateless decodingPaul Kocialkowski4-3/+580
This introduces the required definitions for HEVC decoding support with stateless VPUs. The controls associated to the HEVC slice format provide the required meta-data for decoding slices extracted from the bitstream. They are not exported to the public V4L2 API since reworking this API will likely be needed for covering various use-cases and new hardware. Multi-slice decoding is exposed as a valid decoding mode to match current H.264 support but it is not yet implemented. The interface comes with the following limitations: * No custom quantization matrices (scaling lists); * Support for a single temporal layer only; * No slice entry point offsets support; * No conformance window support; * No VUI parameters support; * No support for SPS extensions: range, multilayer, 3d, scc, 4 bits; * No support for PPS extensions: range, multilayer, 3d, scc, 4 bits.

Since the uapi does not contain the num_ref_idx_active_override_flag, drivers for decoders that do not parse slices themselves don't know how to choose between the num_ref_idx_l[01]_default_active and the num_ref_idx_l[01]_active override fields. Instead, userspace must set the override fields to the default values if the slice does not have the num_ref_idx_active_override flag set. The drivers will then always enable the override internally and ignore the default fields completely. Clarify this requirement in the API documentation.

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/jmorris/linux-security Pull kernel lockdown mode from James Morris: "This is the latest iteration of the kernel lockdown patchset, from Matthew Garrett, David Howells and others. From the original description: This patchset introduces an optional kernel lockdown feature, intended to strengthen the boundary between UID 0 and the kernel. When enabled, various pieces of kernel functionality are restricted. Applications that rely on low-level access to either hardware or the kernel may cease working as a result - therefore this should not be enabled without appropriate evaluation beforehand. The majority of mainstream distributions have been carrying variants of this patchset for many years now, so there's value in providing a doesn't meet every distribution requirement, but gets us much closer to not requiring external patches. There are two major changes since this was last proposed for mainline: - Separating lockdown from EFI secure boot. Background discussion is covered here: https://lwn.net/Articles/751061/ - Implementation as an LSM, with a default stackable lockdown LSM module. This allows the lockdown feature to be policy-driven, rather than encoding an implicit policy within the mechanism. The new locked_down LSM hook is provided to allow LSMs to make a policy decision around whether kernel functionality that would allow tampering with or examining the runtime state of the kernel should be permitted. The included lockdown LSM provides an implementation with a simple policy intended for general purpose use. This policy provides a coarse level of granularity, controllable via the kernel command line: lockdown={integrity|confidentiality} Enable the kernel lockdown feature. If set to integrity, kernel features that allow userland to modify the running kernel are disabled. If set to confidentiality, kernel features that allow userland to extract confidential information from the kernel are also disabled. This may also be controlled via /sys/kernel/security/lockdown and overriden by kernel configuration. New or existing LSMs may implement finer-grained controls of the lockdown features. Refer to the lockdown_reason documentation in include/linux/security.h for details. The lockdown feature has had signficant design feedback and review across many subsystems. This code has been in linux-next for some weeks, with a few fixes applied along the way. Stephen Rothwell noted that commit 9d1f8be5cf42 ("bpf: Restrict bpf when kernel lockdown is in confidentiality mode") is missing a Signed-off-by from its author.

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/zohar/linux-integrity Pull integrity updates from Mimi Zohar: "The major feature in this time is IMA support for measuring and appraising appended file signatures. In addition are a couple of bug fixes and code cleanup to use struct_size(). In addition to the PE/COFF and IMA xattr signatures, the kexec kernel image may be signed with an appended signature, using the same scripts/sign-file tool that is used to sign kernel modules. Similarly, the initramfs may contain an appended signature. This contained a lot of refactoring of the existing appended signature verification code, so that IMA could retain the existing framework of calculating the file hash once, storing it in the IMA measurement list and extending the TPM, verifying the file's integrity based on a file hash or signature (eg. xattrs), and adding an audit record containing the file hash, all based on policy. (The IMA support for appended signatures patch set was posted and reviewed 11 times.) The support for appended signature paves the way for adding other signature verification methods, such as fs-verity, based on a single system-wide policy.

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/mszeredi/fuse Pull fuse virtio-fs support from Miklos Szeredi: "Virtio-fs allows exporting directory trees on the host and mounting them in guest(s). This isn't actually a new filesystem, but a glue layer between the fuse filesystem and a virtio based back-end. It's similar in functionality to the existing virtio-9p solution, but significantly faster in benchmarks and has better POSIX compliance. Further permformance improvements can be achieved by sharing the page cache between host and guest, allowing for faster I/O and reduced memory use. Kata Containers have been including the out-of-tree virtio-fs (with the shared page cache patches as well) since version 1.7 as an experimental feature. They have been active in development and plan to switch from virtio-9p to virtio-fs as their default solution. There has been interest from other sources as well. The userspace infrastructure is slated to be merged into qemu once the kernel part hits mainline. This was developed by Vivek Goyal, Dave Gilbert and Stefan Hajnoczi" * tag 'virtio-fs-5.4' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/mszeredi/fuse: virtio-fs: add virtiofs filesystem virtio-fs: add Documentation/filesystems/virtiofs.rst fuse: reserve values for mapping protocol

2019-09-26mm: treewide: clarify pgtable_page_{ctor,dtor}() namingMark Rutland1-5/+5
The naming of pgtable_page_{ctor,dtor}() seems to have confused a few people, and until recently arm64 used these erroneously/pointlessly for other levels of page table. To make it incredibly clear that these only apply to the PTE level, and to align with the naming of pgtable_pmd_page_{ctor,dtor}(), let's rename them to pgtable_pte_page_{ctor,dtor}(). These changes were generated with the following shell script: ---- git grep -lw 'pgtable_page_.tor' | while read FILE; do sed -i '{s/pgtable_page_ctor/pgtable_pte_page_ctor/}' $FILE; sed -i '{s/pgtable_page_dtor/pgtable_pte_page_dtor/}' $FILE; done ---- ... with the documentation re-flowed to remain under 80 columns, and whitespace fixed up in macros to keep backslashes aligned. There should be no functional change as a result of this patch.
