From: SeongJae Park <sjpark(a)amazon.de>
When running a test program, 'run_one()' checks if the program has the
execution permission and fails if it doesn't. However, it's easy to
mistakenly missing the permission, as some common tools like 'diff'
don't support the permission change well. Compared to that, making
mistakes in the test program's path would only rare, as those are
explicitly listed in 'TEST_PROGS'. Therefore, it might make more sense
to resolve the situation on our own and run the program.
For the reason, this commit makes the test program runner function to
still print the warning message but try parsing the interpreter of the
program and explicitly run it with the interpreter, in the case.

Real-time setups try hard to ensure proper isolation between time
critical applications and e.g. network processing performed by the
network stack in softirq and RPS is used to move the softirq
activity away from the isolated core.
If the network configuration is dynamic, with netns and devices
routinely created at run-time, enforcing the correct RPS setting
on each newly created device allowing to transient bad configuration
These series try to address the above, introducing a new
sysctl knob: rps_default_mask. The new sysctl entry allows
configuring a systemwide RPS mask, to be enforced since receive
queue creation time without any fourther per device configuration
Additionally, a simple self-test is introduced to check the

This series adds adjust phase to the PTP Hardware Clock device interface.
Some PTP hardware clocks have a write phase mode that has
a built-in hardware filtering capability. The write phase mode
utilizes a phase offset control word instead of a frequency offset
control word. Add adjust phase function to take advantage of this
Changes since v1:
- As suggested by Richard Cochran:
1. ops->adjphase is new so need to check for non-null function pointer.
2. Kernel coding style uses lower_case_underscores.
3. Use existing PTP clock API for delayed worker.
Vincent Cheng (3):
ptp: Add adjphase function to support phase offset control.
ptp: Add adjust_phase to ptp_clock_caps capability.
ptp: ptp_clockmatrix: Add adjphase() to support PHC write phase mode.

Since the RC1 of kernel 5.13, -smp 2 and -smp 4 don't work with a
virtual e5500 QEMU KVM-HV machine anymore. 
I see in the serial console, that the uImage doesn't load. I use the
following QEMU command for booting:
qemu-system-ppc64 -M ppce500 -cpu e5500 -enable-kvm -m 1024 -kernel
uImage -drive format=raw,file=MintPPC32-X5000.img,index=0,if=virtio
-netdev user,id=mynet0 -device virtio-net,netdev=mynet0 -append "rw
root=/dev/vda" -device virtio-vga -device virtio-mouse-pci -device
virtio-keyboard-pci -device pci-ohci,id=newusb -device
usb-audio,bus=newusb.0 -smp 4
The kernels boot without KVM-HV.
Summary for KVM-HV:
-smp 1 -> works
-smp 2 -> doesn't work
-smp 3 -> works
-smp 4 -> doesn't work
I used -smp 4 before the RC1 of kernel 5.13 because my FSL P5040 BookE
machine  has 4 cores.
Does this patch solve this issue? 
On this v9 I've dropped the generic sysfs deadlock fix given Ming Lei
has provided alternative fixes for the zram driver without incurring
a generic lock *and* we don't yet have full assessment of how wide
spread the deadlock case might be in the kernel. A full assessment
effort is still underway using Coccinelle with iteration support,
however that effort will take a bit more time to complete. We can
re-evaluate the value of a generic fix later after the assessment
This series now just adds the test_sysfs selftest and failure injection
support for it on kernfs. The most valuable tests are those which
confirm that once a kernfs active reference is obtained with
kernfs_get_active() the pointers used there are still valid, and so
using sysfs ops *are* safe if we race against module removal. Likewise
it also confirms how module removal will *wait* for these ops to
complete if a kernfs node is already active.
This v9 series also addresses feedback mostly provided by Kees Cook and Greg.
I also made a few changes to the test_sysfs driver to account for changes in
the block layer. I also improved the kernfs failure injection tests with
documentation of how they work and to account for the real expected return
value of a write before the kernfs active reference is obtained. Upstream
commit 8e141f9eb803e ("block: drain file system I/O on del_gendisk") has
revealed that small minor induced delays on del_gendisk() can make a few
writes succeed if the delays used are small. So we clarify the logic of why
writes could either fail or succeed before the kernfs active reference is taken.
These changes also availble on this tree:
* rebased onto linux-next tag next-20211029
* add Reviewed-by tags for the SPDX change, and the drivers which
get the tag for it
* drop the generic sysfs deadlock fix for now as the scope of how
wide spread the issue is still needs to be assessed
* drop the zram patches as they are replaced by Ming Lei's fixes
* drop already merged patches
* try_module_get() docs: enhanced using feedback from Kees Cook. I
extended the documention to make it clear that if proper care is not
taken the use of this routine could crash the kernel.
* kernfs: move failure injection knobs under /sys/kernel/debug/fail_kernfs
as suggested by Kees Cook
* kernfs: rename failure injection file to fault_inject.c as suggested
by Kees Cook
* kernfs: split up documentation of failure injection knobs as
suggested by Kees Cook
* kernfs: move the wait into debug call, and use a simple one liner
may_wait() calls to make the changes much less intrusive and more
readable as suggested by Kees Cook
* kernfs: drop __func__ uses as suggested by Kees Cook
* test_sysfs: use sizeof() instead of open coded 16 as suggested by
* test_sysfs: use sysfs_emit as suggested by Kees Cook
* test_sysfs: drop boiler place license as suggested by Greg KH
* test_sysfs: use depends instead of select as suggested by Kees Cook
* test_sysfs: drop #ifdefery as suggested by Kees Cook
* test_sysfs: clarified that the use of a lock on rmmod which causes
a deadlock is something drivers should avoid, and its why we leave
the test disabled.
* test_sysfs: now that device_add_disk() returns an error, use the
new error return code, otherwise this is going to prevent us from
eventually embracing __must_check() on that call on the block layer.
* test_syfs: testdev_submit_bio() needed to change data types as now
it returns void.
* test_sysfs: enhance kernfs failure injection tests with documenation
and correct the expected return value for writes

Commit ddbd60c779b4 ("kunit: use --build_dir=.kunit as default") changed
the default --build_dir, which had the side effect of making
`.kunitconfig` move to `.kunit/.kunitconfig`.
However, the first few lines of kunit/start.rst never got updated, oops.
Fix this by telling people to run kunit.py first, which will
automatically generate the .kunit directory and .kunitconfig file, and
then edit the file manually as desired.

I would like to publish two debug features which were needed for other stuff
I work on.
One is the reworked lx-symbols script which now actually works on at least
gdb 9.1 (gdb 9.2 was reported to fail to load the debug symbols from the kernel
for some reason, not related to this patch) and upstream qemu.
The other feature is the ability to trap all guest exceptions (on SVM for now)
and see them in kvmtrace prior to potential merge to double/triple fault.
This can be very useful and I already had to manually patch KVM a few
times for this.
I will, once time permits, implement this feature on Intel as well.
* Some more refactoring and workarounds for lx-symbols script
* added KVM_GUESTDBG_BLOCKIRQ flag to enable 'block interrupts on
single step' together with KVM_CAP_SET_GUEST_DEBUG2 capability
to indicate which guest debug flags are supported.
This is a replacement for unconditional block of interrupts on single
step that was done in previous version of this patch set.
Patches to qemu to use that feature will be sent soon.
* Reworked the the 'intercept all exceptions for debug' feature according
to the review feedback:
- renamed the parameter that enables the feature and
moved it to common kvm module.
(only SVM part is currently implemented though)
- disable the feature for SEV guests as was suggested during the review
- made the vmexit table const again, as was suggested in the review as well.
* Modified a selftest to cover the KVM_GUESTDBG_BLOCKIRQ
* Rebased on kvm/queue
