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

create mode 100755 tools/testing/selftests/net/rps_default_mask.sh
This series provides initial support for the ARMv9 Scalable Matrix
Extension (SME). SME takes the approach used for vectors in SVE and
extends this to provide architectural support for matrix operations. A
more detailed overview can be found in .
For the kernel SME can be thought of as a series of features which are
intended to be used together by applications but operate mostly
- The ZA matrix register.
- Streaming mode, in which ZA can be accessed and a subset of SVE
features are available.
- A second vector length, used for streaming mode SVE and ZA and
controlled using a similar interface to that for SVE.
- TPIDR2, a new userspace controllable system register intended for use
by the C library for storing context related to the ZA ABI.
A substantial part of the series is dedicated to refactoring the
existing SVE support so that we don't need to duplicate code for
handling vector lengths and the SVE registers, this involves creating an
array of vector types and making the users take the vector type as a
parameter. I'm not 100% happy with this but wasn't able to come up with
anything better, duplicating code definitely felt like a bad idea so
this felt like the least bad thing. If this approach makes sense to
people it might make sense to split this off into a separate series
and/or merge it while the rest is pending review to try to make things a
little more digestable, the series is very large so it'd probably make
things easier to digest if some of the preparatory refactoring could be
merged before the rest is ready.
One feature of the architecture of particular note is that switching
to and from streaming mode may change the size of and invalidate the
contents of the SVE registers, and when in streaming mode the FFR is not
accessible. This complicates aspects of the ABI like signal handling
This initial implementation is mainly intended to get the ABI in place,
there are several areas which will be worked on going forwards - some of
these will be blockers, others could be handled in followup serieses:
- SME is currently not supported for KVM guests, this will be done as a
followup series. A host system can use SME and run KVM guests but
SME is not available in the guests.
- The KVM host support is done in a very simplistic way, were anyone to
attempt to use it in production there would be performance impacts on
hosts with SME support. As part of this we also add enumeration of
fine grained traps.
- There is not currently ptrace or signal support TPIDR2, this will be
done as a followup series.
- No support is currently provided for scheduler control of SME or SME
applications, given the size of the SME register state the context
switch overhead may be noticable so this may be needed especially for
real time applications. Similar concerns already exist for larger
SVE vector lengths but are amplified for SME, particularly as the
vector length increases.
- There has been no work on optimising the performance of anything the
It is not expected that any systems will be encountered that support SME
but not SVE, SME is an ARMv9 feature and SVE is mandatory for ARMv9.
The code attempts to handle any such systems that are encountered but
this hasn't been tested extensively.
- Rebase onto v5.18-rc3.
- Preserve ZA in both parent and child on clone() and add a test case
- Fix EFI integration for FA64.
- Minor tweaks to the ABI document following Catlain's review.
- Add and make use of thread_get_cur_vl() helper.
- Fix some issues with SVE/FPSIMD register type moves in streaming SVE
- Typo fixes.
- Roll in separately posted series extending ptrace coverage in
kselftest for better integrated testing of the series.
- Fix some typos in the ABI document.
- Print a message when we skip a vector length in the signal tests.
- Add note of earliest toolchain versions with SME to manual encodings
for future reference now that's landed.
- Drop reference to PCS in sme.rst, it's not referenced and one of the
links was broken.
- Encode smstop and smstart as sysregs in the kernel.
- Don't redundantly flush the SVE register state when loading FPSIMD
state with SME enabled for the task, the architecture will do this
- Introduce and use task_get_cur_vl() to get the vector length for the
currently active SVE registers.
- Fix support for !FA64 mode in signal and syscall tests.
- Simplify instruction sequence for ssve_regs signal test.
- Actually include the ZA signal test in the patch set.
- Rebase onto v5.17-rc3.
- Provide a sme-inst.h to collect manual encodings in kselftest.
- Actually do the rebase of fixups from the previous version into
- Remove defensive programming around IS_ENABLED() and FGT in KVM code.
- Fix naming of TPIDR2 FGT register bit.
- Add patches making handling of floating point register bits more
consistent (also sent as separate series).
- Drop now unused enumeration of fine grained traps.
- Rebase onto v5.17-rc1.
- Support interoperation with KVM, SME is disabled for KVM guests with
minimal handling for cleaning up SME state when entering and leaving
- Document and implement that signal handlers are invoked with ZA and
streaming mode disabled.
- Use the RDSVL instruction introduced in EAC2 of the architecture to
obtain the streaming mode vector length during enumeration, ZA state
loading/saving and in test programs.
- Store a pointer to SVCR in fpsimd_last_state and use it in fpsimd_save()
for interoperation with KVM.
- Add a test case sme_trap_no_sm checking that we generate a SIGILL
when using an instruction that requires streaming mode without
- Add basic ZA context form validation to testcases helper library.
- Move signal tests over to validating streaming VL from ZA information.
- Pulled in patch removing ARRAY_SIZE() so that kselftest builds
cleanly and to avoid trivial conflicts.
- Rebase onto v5.16-rc3.
- Reduce indentation when supporting custom triggers for signal tests
as suggested by Catalin.
- Change to specifying a width for all CPU features rather than adding
single bit specific infrastructure.
- Don't require zeroing of non-shared SVE state during syscalls.
- Rebase onto v5.16-rc1.
- Return to disabling TIF_SVE on kernel entry even if we have SME
state, this avoids the need for KVM to handle the case where TIF_SVE
is set on guest entry.
- Add syscall-abi.h to SME updates to syscall-abi, mistakenly omitted
- Rebase onto currently merged SVE and kselftest patches.
- Add support for the FA64 option, introduced in the recently published
EAC1 update to the specification.

- Don't redundantly specify a zero index when clearing FFR.
- Fix several issues with !SME and !SVE configurations.
- Preserve TPIDR2 when creating a new thread/process unless
CLONE_SETTLS is set.
- Report traps due to using features in an invalid mode as SIGILL.
- Spell out streaming mode behaviour in SVE ABI documentation more
- Document TPIDR2 in the ABI document.
- Use SMSTART and SMSTOP rather than read/modify/write sequences.
- Rework logic for exiting streaming mode on syscall.
- Don't needlessly initialise SVCR on access trap.
- Always restore SME VL for userspace if SME traps are disabled.
- Only yield to encourage preemption every 128 iterations in za-test,
otherwise do a getpid(), and validate SVCR after syscall.
- Leave streaming mode disabled except when reading the vector length
in za-test, and disable ZA after detecting a mismatch.
- Add SME support to vlset.
- Clarifications and typo fixes in comments.
- Move sme_alloc() forward declaration back a patch.

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.

The default file permissions on a memfd include execute bits, which
means that such a memfd can be filled with a executable and passed to
the exec() family of functions. This is undesirable on systems where all
code is verified and all filesystems are intended to be mounted noexec,
since an attacker may be able to use a memfd to load unverified code and
Additionally, execution via memfd is a common way to avoid scrutiny for
malicious code, since it allows execution of a program without a file
ever appearing on disk. This attack vector is not totally mitigated with
this new flag, since the default memfd file permissions must remain
executable to avoid breaking existing legitimate uses, but it should be
possible to use other security mechanisms to prevent memfd_create calls
without MFD_NOEXEC on systems where it is known that executable memfds
are not necessary.
This patch series adds a new MFD_NOEXEC flag for memfd_create(), which
allows creation of non-executable memfds, and as part of the
implementation of this new flag, it also adds a new F_SEAL_EXEC seal,
which will prevent modification of any of the execute bits of a sealed
I am not sure if this is the best way to implement the desired behavior
(for example, the F_SEAL_EXEC seal is really more of an implementation
detail and feels a bit clunky to expose), so suggestions are welcome
for alternate approaches.

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?
