1/ this is ineffective: user-space need to be involved in any 'safemode' handling,
2/ The safemode management code doesn't cope with safemode==2 on external metadata

hrtimer: Prevent remote enqueue of leftmost timers

commit 012a45e3f4af68e86d85cce060c6c2fed56498b2 upstream.

If a cpu is idle and starts an hrtimer which is not pinned on that
same cpu, the nohz code might target the timer to a different cpu.

In the case that we switch the cpu base of the timer we already have a
sanity check in place, which determines whether the timer is earlier
than the current leftmost timer on the target cpu. In that case we
enqueue the timer on the current cpu because we cannot reprogram the
clock event device on the target.

If the timers base is already the target CPU we do not have this
sanity check in place so we enqueue the timer as the leftmost timer in
the target cpus rb tree, but we cannot reprogram the clock event
device on the target cpu. So the timer expires late and subsequently
prevents the reprogramming of the target cpu clock event device until
the previously programmed event fires or a timer with an earlier
expiry time gets enqueued on the target cpu itself.

Add the same target check as we have for the switch base case and
start the timer on the current cpu if it would become the leftmost
timer on the target.

If the last hrtimer interrupt detected a hang it sets hang_detected=1
and programs the clock event device with a delay to let the system
make progress.

If hang_detected == 1, we prevent reprogramming of the clock event
device in hrtimer_reprogram() but not in hrtimer_force_reprogram().

This can lead to the following situation:

   hang_detected = 1;
   program ce device to Xms from now (hang delay)

We have two timers pending:
   T1 expires 50ms from now
   T2 expires 5s from now

Now T1 gets canceled, which causes hrtimer_force_reprogram() to be
invoked, which in turn programs the clock event device to T2 (5
seconds from now).

Any hrtimer_start after that will not reprogram the hardware due to
hang_detected still being set. So we effectivly block all timers until
the T2 event fires and cleans up the hang situation.

Add a check for hang_detected to hrtimer_force_reprogram() which
prevents the reprogramming of the hang delay in the hardware
timer. The subsequent hrtimer_interrupt will resolve all outstanding

[ here all module text is set to RO,

When this race happens, ftrace_bug() will produces a nasty warning and
all of the function tracing features will be disabled until reboot.

The simple solution is to treate module load the same way the core
kernel is treated at boot. To hardcode the ftrace function modification
of converting calls to mcount into nops. This is done in init/main.c
there's no reason it could not be done in load_module(). This gives
a better control of the changes and doesn't tie the state of the
module to its notifiers as much. Ftrace is special, it needs to be
treated as such.

The reason this would work, is that the ftrace_module_init() would be
called while the module is in MODULE_STATE_UNFORMED, which is ignored
by the set_all_module_text_ro() call.

we have already called this function previously and the flowi

Since 115c9b81928360d769a76c632bae62d15206a94a (rtnetlink: Fix problem with

attribute if they were solicited by a GETLINK message containing an
IFLA_EXT_MASK attribute with the RTEXT_FILTER_VF flag.

That was done because some user programs broke when they received more data
than expected - because IFLA_VFINFO_LIST contains information for each VF
it can become large if there are many VFs.

However, the IFLA_VF_PORTS attribute, supplied for devices which implement
ndo_get_vf_port (currently the 'enic' driver only), has the same problem.
It supplies per-VF information and can therefore become large, but it is
not currently conditional on the IFLA_EXT_MASK value.

Worse, it interacts badly with the existing EXT_MASK handling.  When
IFLA_EXT_MASK is not supplied, the buffer for netlink replies is fixed at
NLMSG_GOODSIZE.  If the information for IFLA_VF_PORTS exceeds this, then
rtnl_fill_ifinfo() returns -EMSGSIZE on the first message in a packet.
netlink_dump() will misinterpret this as having finished the listing and
omit data for this interface and all subsequent ones.  That can cause
getifaddrs(3) to enter an infinite loop.

8 years agofilter: prevent nla extensions to peek beyond the end of the message
Mathias Krause [Sun, 13 Apr 2014 16:23:33 +0000 (18:23 +0200)]
filter: prevent nla extensions to peek beyond the end of the message

[ Upstream commit 05ab8f2647e4221cbdb3856dd7d32bd5407316b3 ]

The BPF_S_ANC_NLATTR and BPF_S_ANC_NLATTR_NEST extensions fail to check
for a minimal message length before testing the supplied offset to be
within the bounds of the message. This allows the subtraction of the nla
header to underflow and therefore -- as the data type is unsigned --
allowing far to big offset and length values for the search of the
netlink attribute.

The remainder calculation for the BPF_S_ANC_NLATTR_NEST extension is
also wrong. It has the minuend and subtrahend mixed up, therefore
calculates a huge length value, allowing to overrun the end of the
message while looking for the netlink attribute.

The following three BPF snippets will trigger the bugs when attached to
a UNIX datagram socket and parsing a message with length 1, 2 or 3.

Fix the first issue by ensuring the message length fulfills the minimal
size constrains of a nla header. Fix the second bug by getting the math
for the remainder calculation right.

tgafb: fix mode setting with fbset

commit 624966589041deb32a2626ee2e176e8274581101 upstream.

Mode setting in the TGA driver is broken for these reasons:

- info->fix.line_length is set just once in tgafb_init_fix function. If
  we change videomode, info->fix.line_length is not recalculated - so
  the video mode is changed but the screen is corrupted because of wrong

- info->fix.smem_len is set in tgafb_init_fix to the size of the default
  video mode (640x480). If we set a higher resolution,
  info->fix.smem_len is smaller than the current screen size, preventing
  the userspace program from mapping the framebuffer.

This patch fixes it:

- info->fix.line_length initialization is moved to tgafb_set_par so that
  it is recalculated with each mode change.

- info->fix.smem_len is set to a fixed value representing the real
  amount of video ram (the values are taken from xfree86 driver).

- add a check to tgafb_check_var to prevent us from setting a videomode
  that doesn't fit into videoram.

- in tgafb_register, tgafb_init_fix is moved upwards, to be called
  before fb_find_mode (because fb_find_mode already needs the videoram
  size set in tgafb_init_fix).

ACPI / EC: Process rather than discard events in acpi_ec_clear

commit 3eba563e280101209bad27d40bfc83ddf1489234 upstream.

Address a regression caused by commit ad332c8a4533:
(ACPI / EC: Clear stale EC events on Samsung systems)

After the earlier patch, there was found to be a race condition on some
earlier Samsung systems (N150/N210/N220). The function acpi_ec_clear was
sometimes discarding a new EC event before its GPE was triggered by the
system. In the case of these systems, this meant that the "lid open"
event was not registered on resume if that was the cause of the wake,
leading to problems when attempting to close the lid to suspend again.

After testing on a number of Samsung systems, both those affected by the
previous EC bug and those affected by the race condition, it seemed that
the best course of action was to process rather than discard the events.
On Samsung systems which accumulate stale EC events, there does not seem
to be any adverse side-effects of running the associated _Q methods.

This patch adds an argument to the static function acpi_ec_sync_query so
that it may be used within the acpi_ec_clear loop in place of
acpi_ec_query_unlocked which was used previously.

With thanks to Stefan Biereigel for reporting the issue, and for all the
people who helped test the new patch on affected systems.

ACPI / EC: Clear stale EC events on Samsung systems

commit ad332c8a45330d170bb38b95209de449b31cd1b4 upstream.

A number of Samsung notebooks (530Uxx/535Uxx/540Uxx/550Pxx/900Xxx/etc)
continue to log events during sleep (lid open/close, AC plug/unplug,
battery level change), which accumulate in the EC until a buffer fills.
After the buffer is full (tests suggest it holds 8 events), GPEs stop
being triggered for new events. This state persists on wake or even on
power cycle, and prevents new events from being registered until the EC
is manually polled.

This is the root cause of a number of bugs, including AC not being
detected properly, lid close not triggering suspend, and low ambient
light not triggering the keyboard backlight. The bug also seemed to be
responsible for performance issues on at least one user's machine.

Juan Manuel Cabo found the cause of bug and the workaround of polling
the EC manually on wake.

The loop which clears the stale events is based on an earlier patch by
Lan Tianyu (see referenced attachment).

This patch:
 - Adds a function acpi_ec_clear() which polls the EC for stale _Q
   events at most ACPI_EC_CLEAR_MAX (currently 100) times. A warning is
   logged if this limit is reached.
 - Adds a flag EC_FLAGS_CLEAR_ON_RESUME which is set to 1 if the DMI
   system vendor is Samsung. This check could be replaced by several
   more specific DMI vendor/product pairs, but it's likely that the bug
   affects more Samsung products than just the five series mentioned
   above. Further, it should not be harmful to run acpi_ec_clear() on
   systems without the bug; it will return immediately after finding no
   data waiting.
 - Runs acpi_ec_clear() on initialisation (boot), from acpi_ec_add()
 - Runs acpi_ec_clear() on wake, from acpi_ec_unblock_transactions()

n_tty: Fix n_tty_write crash when echoing in raw mode

commit 4291086b1f081b869c6d79e5b7441633dc3ace00 upstream.

The tty atomic_write_lock does not provide an exclusion guarantee for
the tty driver if the termios settings are LECHO & !OPOST.  And since
it is unexpected and not allowed to call TTY buffer helpers like
tty_insert_flip_string concurrently, this may lead to crashes when
concurrect writers call pty_write. In that case the following two
* the ECHOing from a workqueue and
* pty_write from the process
race and can overflow the corresponding TTY buffer like follows.

If we look into tty_insert_flip_string_fixed_flag, there is:
  int space = __tty_buffer_request_room(port, goal, flags);
  struct tty_buffer *tb = port->buf.tail;
  memcpy(char_buf_ptr(tb, tb->used), chars, space);
  tb->used += space;

so the race of the two can result in something like this:
              A                                B
memcpy(buf(tb->used), ...)
tb->used += space;
                                  memcpy(buf(tb->used), ...) ->BOOM

B's memcpy is past the tty_buffer due to the previous A's tb->used

Since the N_TTY line discipline input processing can output
concurrently with a tty write, obtain the N_TTY ldisc output_lock to
serialize echo output with normal tty writes.  This ensures the tty
buffer helper tty_insert_flip_string is not called concurrently and
everything is fine.

Note that this is nicely reproducible by an ordinary user using
forkpty and some setup around that (raw termios + ECHO). And it is
present in kernels at least after commit
d945cb9cce20ac7143c2de8d88b187f62db99bdc (pty: Rework the pty layer to
use the normal buffering logic) in 2.6.31-rc3.

doesn't fix it.

rtl92c_dm_watchdog() calls rtl92ce_update_hal_rate_tbl() via
rtl92c_dm_refresh_rate_adaptive_mask(), which does not appear in the
call trace as it was inlined.  That function has been completely
removed upstream which may explain why this crash wasn't seen there.

I'm not sure that it is sensible to completely remove
rtl92c_dm_refresh_rate_adaptive_mask() without making other
compensating changes elsewhere, so try to work around this for 3.2 by
checking for a null pointer in rtl92c_dm_refresh_rate_adaptive_mask()
and then skipping the call to rtl92ce_update_hal_rate_tbl().

usb: xhci: Prefer endpoint context dequeue pointer over stopped_trb

commit 1f81b6d22a5980955b01e08cf27fb745dc9b686f upstream.

We have observed a rare cycle state desync bug after Set TR Dequeue
Pointer commands on Intel LynxPoint xHCs (resulting in an endpoint that
doesn't fetch new TRBs and thus an unresponsive USB device). It always
triggers when a previous Set TR Dequeue Pointer command has set the
pointer to the final Link TRB of a segment, and then another URB gets
enqueued and cancelled again before it can be completed. Further
investigation showed that the xHC had returned the Link TRB in the TRB
Pointer field of the Transfer Event (CC == Stopped -- Length Invalid),
but when xhci_find_new_dequeue_state() later accesses the Endpoint
Context's TR Dequeue Pointer field it is set to the first TRB of the
next segment.

The driver expects those two values to be the same in this situation,
and uses the cycle state of the latter together with the address of the
former. This should be fine according to the XHCI specification, since
the endpoint ring should be stopped when returning the Transfer Event
and thus should not advance over the Link TRB before it gets restarted.
However, real-world XHCI implementations apparently don't really care
that much about these details, so the driver should follow a more
defensive approach to try to work around HC spec violations.

This patch removes the stopped_trb variable that had been used to store
the TRB Pointer from the last Transfer Event of a stopped TRB. Instead,
xhci_find_new_dequeue_state() now relies only on the Endpoint Context,
requiring a small amount of additional processing to find the virtual
address corresponding to the TR Dequeue Pointer. Some other parts of the
function were slightly rearranged to better fit into this model.

This patch should be backported to kernels as old as 2.6.31 that contain
the commit ae636747146ea97efa18e04576acd3416e2514f5 "USB: xhci: URB

Btrfs: fix inode caching vs tree log

commit 1c70d8fb4dfa95bee491816b2a6767b5ca1080e7 upstream.

Currently, with inode cache enabled, we will reuse its inode id immediately
after unlinking file, we may hit something like following:

|->iput inode
|->return inode id into inode cache
|->create dir,fsync
|->power off

An easy way to reproduce this problem is:

mkfs.btrfs -f /dev/sdb
mount /dev/sdb /mnt -o inode_cache,commit=100
dd if=/dev/zero of=/mnt/data bs=1M count=10 oflag=sync
inode_id=`ls -i /mnt/data | awk '{print $1}'`
rm -f /mnt/data

while [ 1 ]
        mkdir /mnt/dir_$i
        test1=`stat /mnt/dir_$i | grep Inode: | awk '{print $4}'`
        if [ $test1 -eq $inode_id ]
dd if=/dev/zero of=/mnt/dir_$i/data bs=1M count=1 oflag=sync
echo b > /proc/sysrq-trigger
sleep 1

mount /dev/sdb /mnt
umount /dev/sdb
btrfs check /dev/sdb

We fix this problem by adding unlinked inode's id into pinned tree,
and we can not reuse them until committing transaction.

Stefan Behrens [Tue, 15 Oct 2013 18:08:15 +0000 (20:08 +0200)]
Btrfs: Don't allocate inode that is already in use

commit ff76b0565523319d7c1c0b51d5a5a8915d33efab upstream.

Due to an off-by-one error, it is possible to reproduce a bug
when the inode cache is used.

The same inode number is assigned twice, the second time this
leads to an EEXIST in btrfs_insert_empty_items().

The issue can happen when a file is removed right after a subvolume
is created and then a new inode number is created before the
inodes in free_inode_pinned are processed.
unlink() calls btrfs_return_ino() which calls start_caching() in this
case which adds [highest_ino + 1, BTRFS_LAST_FREE_OBJECTID] by
searching for the highest inode (which already cannot find the
unlinked one anymore in btrfs_find_free_objectid()). So if this
unlinked inode's number is equal to the highest_ino + 1 (or >= this value
instead of > this value which was the off-by-one error), we mustn't add
the inode number to free_ino_pinned (caching_thread() does it right).
In this case we need to try directly to add the number to the inode_cache
which will fail in this case.

When this inode number is allocated while it is still in free_ino_pinned,
it is allocated and still added to the free inode cache when the
pinned inodes are processed, thus one of the following inode number
allocations will get an inode that is already in use and fail with EEXIST
in btrfs_insert_empty_items().

One example which was created with the reproducer below:
Create a snapshot, work in the newly created snapshot for the rest.
In unlink(inode 34284) call btrfs_return_ino() which calls start_caching().
start_caching() calls add_free_space [34284, 18446744073709517077].
In btrfs_return_ino(), call start_caching pinned [34284, 1] which is wrong.
mkdir() call btrfs_find_ino_for_alloc() which returns the number 34284.
btrfs_unpin_free_ino calls add_free_space [34284, 1].
mkdir() call btrfs_find_ino_for_alloc() which returns the number 34284.
EEXIST when the new inode is inserted.

One possible reproducer is this one:
 # preparation
umount ${TEST_MNT} 2>/dev/null || true
mkfs.btrfs -f ${TEST_DEV}
mount ${TEST_DEV} ${TEST_MNT} -o \
btrfs subv create ${TEST_MNT}/s1
for i in `seq 34027`; do touch ${TEST_MNT}/s1/${i}; done
btrfs subv snap ${TEST_MNT}/s1 ${TEST_MNT}/s2
FILENAME=`find ${TEST_MNT}/s1/ -inum 4085 | sed 's|^.*/\([^/]*\)$|\1|'`
touch ${TEST_MNT}/s2/$FILENAME
 # the following steps can be repeated to reproduce the issue again and again
[ -e ${TEST_MNT}/s3 ] && btrfs subv del ${TEST_MNT}/s3
btrfs subv snap ${TEST_MNT}/s2 ${TEST_MNT}/s3
touch ${TEST_MNT}/s3/$FILENAME
ls -alFi ${TEST_MNT}/s?/$FILENAME
touch ${TEST_MNT}/s3/_1 || logger FAILED
ls -alFi ${TEST_MNT}/s?/_1
touch ${TEST_MNT}/s3/_2 || logger FAILED
ls -alFi ${TEST_MNT}/s?/_2
touch ${TEST_MNT}/s3/__1 || logger FAILED
ls -alFi ${TEST_MNT}/s?/__1
touch ${TEST_MNT}/s3/__2 || logger FAILED
ls -alFi ${TEST_MNT}/s?/__2
 # if the above is not enough, add the following loop:
for i in `seq 3 9`; do touch ${TEST_MNT}/s3/__${i} || logger FAILED; done
 #for i in `seq 3 34027`; do touch ${TEST_MNT}/s3/__${i} || logger FAILED; done
 # one of the touch(1) calls in s3 fail due to EEXIST because the inode is
 # already in use that btrfs_find_ino_for_alloc() returns.

Fix driver new_id sysfs-attribute removal deadlock by making sure to
not hold any locks that the attribute operations grab when removing the

Specifically, usb_serial_deregister holds the table mutex when
deregistering the driver, which includes removing the new_id attribute.
This can lead to a deadlock as writing to new_id increments the
attribute's active count before trying to grab the same mutex in

The deadlock can easily be triggered by inserting a sleep in
usb_serial_deregister and writing the id of an unbound device to new_id
during module unload.

As the table mutex (in this case) is used to prevent subdriver unload
during probe, it should be sufficient to only hold the lock while
manipulating the usb-serial driver list during deregister. A racing
probe will then either fail to find a matching subdriver or fail to get
the corresponding module reference.

ARM: 8027/1: fix do_div() bug in big-endian systems

In big-endian systems, "%1" get the most significant part of the value, cause the instruction to get the wrong result.

When viewing ftrace record in big-endian ARM systems, we found that

mm: make fixup_user_fault() check the vma access rights too

commit 1b17844b29ae042576bea588164f2f1e9590a8bc upstream.

fixup_user_fault() is used by the futex code when the direct user access
fails, and the futex code wants it to either map in the page in a usable
form or return an error.  It relied on handle_mm_fault() to map the
page, and correctly checked the error return from that, but while that
does map the page, it doesn't actually guarantee that the page will be
mapped with sufficient permissions to be then accessed.

So do the appropriate tests of the vma access rights by hand.

[ Side note: arguably handle_mm_fault() could just do that itself, but
  we have traditionally done it in the caller, because some callers -
  notably get_user_pages() - have been able to access pages even when
  they are mapped with PROT_NONE.  Maybe we should re-visit that design
  decision, but in the meantime this is the minimal patch. ]

We expect that all the Haswell series will need such quirks, sigh.

The T431s seems to be T430 hardware in a T440s case, using the T440s touchpad,
with the same min/max issue.

The X1 Carbon 3rd generation name says 2nd while it is a 3rd generation.

The X1 and T431s share a PnPID with the T540p, but the reported ranges are
closer to those of the T440s.

HdG: Squashed 5 quirk patches into one. T431s + L440 + L540 are written by me,

libata/ahci: accommodate tag ordered controllers

commit 8a4aeec8d2d6a3edeffbdfae451cdf05cbf0fefd upstream.

The AHCI spec allows implementations to issue commands in tag order
rather than FIFO order: P:SelectCmd
HBA sets pSlotLoc = (pSlotLoc + 1) mod (CAP.NCS + 1)
or HBA selects the command to issue that has had the
PxCI bit set to '1' longer than any other command
pending to be issued.

The result is that commands posted sequentially (time-wise) may play out
of sequence when issued by hardware.

This behavior has likely been hidden by drives that arrange for commands
to complete in issue order.  However, it appears recent drives (two from
different vendors that we have found so far) inflict out-of-order
completions as a matter of course.  So, we need to take care to maintain
ordered submission, otherwise we risk triggering a drive to fall out of
sequential-io automation and back to random-io processing, which incurs
large latency and degrades throughput.

This issue was found in simple benchmarks where QD=2 seq-write
performance was 30-50% *greater* than QD=32 seq-write performance.

Tagging for -stable and making the change globally since it has a low
risk-to-reward ratio.  Also, word is that recent versions of an unnamed
OS also does it this way now.  So, drives in the field are already
experienced with this tag ordering scheme.

commit f1c6bb2cb8b81013e8979806f8e15e3d53efb96d upstream.

A fl->fl_break_time of 0 has a special meaning to the lease break code
that basically means "never break the lease". knfsd uses this to ensure
that leases don't disappear out from under it.

Unfortunately, the code in __break_lease can end up passing this value
to wait_event_interruptible as a timeout, which prevents it from going
to sleep at all. This makes __break_lease to spin in a tight loop and
causes soft lockups.

powernow-k6: correctly initialize default parameters

commit d82b922a4acc1781d368aceac2f9da43b038cab2 upstream.

The powernow-k6 driver used to read the initial multiplier from the
powernow register. However, there is a problem with this:

* If there was a frequency transition before, the multiplier read from the
  register corresponds to the current multiplier.
* If there was no frequency transition since reset, the field in the
  register always reads as zero, regardless of the current multiplier that
  is set using switches on the mainboard and that the CPU is running at.

The zero value corresponds to multiplier 4.5, so as a consequence, the
powernow-k6 driver always assumes multiplier 4.5.

For example, if we have 550MHz CPU with bus frequency 100MHz and
multiplier 5.5, the powernow-k6 driver thinks that the multiplier is 4.5
and bus frequency is 122MHz. The powernow-k6 driver then sets the
multiplier to 4.5, underclocking the CPU to 450MHz, but reports the
current frequency as 550MHz.

There is no reliable way how to read the initial multiplier. I modified
the driver so that it contains a table of known frequencies (based on
parameters of existing CPUs and some common overclocking schemes) and sets
the multiplier according to the frequency. If the frequency is unknown
(because of unusual overclocking or underclocking), the user must supply
the bus speed and maximum multiplier as module parameters.

This patch should be backported to all stable kernels. If it doesn't
apply cleanly, change it, or ask me to change it.

powernow-k6: disable cache when changing frequency

commit e20e1d0ac02308e2211306fc67abcd0b2668fb8b upstream.

I found out that a system with k6-3+ processor is unstable during network
server load. The system locks up or the network card stops receiving. The
reason for the instability is the CPU frequency scaling.

During frequency transition the processor is in "EPM Stop Grant" state.
The documentation says that the processor doesn't respond to inquiry
requests in this state. Consequently, coherency of processor caches and
bus master devices is not maintained, causing the system instability.

This patch flushes the cache during frequency transition. It fixes the

Other minor changes:
* u64 invalue changed to unsigned long because the variable is 32-bit
* move the logic to set the multiplier to a separate function
* preserve lower 5 bits of the powernow port instead of 4 (the voltage
  field has 5 bits)
* mask interrupts when reading the multiplier, so that the port is not
  open during other activity (running other kernel code with the port open
  shouldn't cause any misbehavior, but we should better be safe and keep
  the port closed)

This patch should be backported to all stable kernels. If it doesn't
apply cleanly, change it, or ask me to change it.

selinux: correctly label /proc inodes in use before the policy is loaded

commit f64410ec665479d7b4b77b7519e814253ed0f686 upstream.

This patch is based on an earlier patch by Eric Paris, he describes
the problem below:

  "If an inode is accessed before policy load it will get placed on a
   list of inodes to be initialized after policy load.  After policy
   load we call inode_doinit() which calls inode_doinit_with_dentry()
   on all inodes accessed before policy load.  In the case of inodes
   in procfs that means we'll end up at the bottom where it does:

     /* Default to the fs superblock SID. */
     isec->sid = sbsec->sid;

     if ((sbsec->flags & SE_SBPROC) && !S_ISLNK(inode->i_mode)) {
             if (opt_dentry) {
                     isec->sclass = inode_mode_to_security_class(...)
                     rc = selinux_proc_get_sid(opt_dentry,
                     if (rc)
                             goto out_unlock;
                     isec->sid = sid;

   Since opt_dentry is null, we'll never call selinux_proc_get_sid()
   and will leave the inode labeled with the label on the superblock.
   I believe a fix would be to mimic the behavior of xattrs.  Look
   for an alias of the inode.  If it can't be found, just leave the
   inode uninitialized (and pick it up later) if it can be found, we
   should be able to call selinux_proc_get_sid() ..."

On a system exhibiting this problem, you will notice a lot of files in
/proc with the generic "proc_t" type (at least the ones that were
accessed early in the boot), for example:

   # ls -Z /proc/sys/kernel/shmmax | awk '{ print $4 " " $5 }'
   system_u:object_r:proc_t:s0 /proc/sys/kernel/shmmax

However, with this patch in place we see the expected result:

   # ls -Z /proc/sys/kernel/shmmax | awk '{ print $4 " " $5 }'
   system_u:object_r:sysctl_kernel_t:s0 /proc/sys/kernel/shmmax

Char: ipmi_bt_sm, fix infinite loop

If bt->read_data[0] == bt->read_count == 255, we loop infinitely in the
'for' loop.  Make 'i' an 'int' instead of 'char' to get rid of the
overflow and finish the loop after 255 iterations every time.
